Annie Lennox’s beautiful card

Nov 21, 2013 | Views: 1,661

Yesterday, I received a pleasant surprise in my Ladrang mailbox, it was a letter from Annie Lennox! I am glad that she has received my gifts which was sent a few weeks ago. Annie Lennox OBE is a multi-award winning British singer-songwriter. She’s also a philanthropist and champions many worthwhile causes, those which are primarily related to HIV and poverty. I truly admire her great passion in both her career and charitable causes.

She has experienced huge successes in her long career in the music industry. Ms Lennox has won a total of 8 Brit Awards, 4 Grammy Awards, an MTV Video Music Award, a Billboard Century Award (the highest accolade from Billboard Magazine, a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award. She has also been named “The Greatest White Soul Singer Alive” by VH1, been number 22 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Women in Music and has sold over 80 million records worldwide. She must have worked very hard to receive such prestigious awards, and to be recognized as the most successful female British artist in UK music history! I truly rejoice for Ms Lennox.

With being famous, privacy usually becomes something beyond your control, so will the scrutiny of the public. People often have certain preconceptions or expectations of a celebrity… and many forget that they too are people.

What I like most about Ms Lennox is that she uses her fame to bring attention to the many causes that she believes in. She’s not afraid to speak her mind, and to speak up on behalf of those who do not have the platform to speak to the mass crowd. She has spent thousands of hours working hard for others… and in all that time spent, she has helped to remove or at least ease the sufferings of hundreds of people. I respect Ms Lennox for being open-minded, out-spoken and for going all the way with what she believes in.

She is also very kind in the heart to take the time to respond, write a thank you and words from her heart. She doesn’t forget general human courtesy. I appreciate that very much. I hope with respect she goes further to explore her deep spirituality and if I can be of assistance, I would. I wanted to blog her kind card and message to share with everyone how courteous Ms Lennox is. Very encouraging. Very kind human gesture.

I have been meaning to send a few gifts to Ms Lennox for a while. For blessings, encouragement, as well as to appreciate her great philanthropic efforts. A few weeks ago, a handful of my students and I picked out a few items for her. I am glad that she got the items safely, and enjoys them! I thank her very much for the card, and wish her much happiness.

The beautiful card cover.

 

 

Dear Rinpoche,

I was very surprised to receive such a special box of gifts all the way from Malaysia!! Thank you so much. I’m so taken aback to have been thought of in such a way…

The beautiful Tara now sits at home with me in London. I’m not a practicing Buddhist but I have always been very much driven to Buddhist philosophy, which I have found to be incredibly helpful and inspiring. And I have to say that your kind and generous present arrived on a day when I needed to be reminded why I often “make myself unhappy”!

I have looked at your blog and had a sense of your extraordinary life story and the photographs of the transformation of this adorable little boy with his journey through life has touched me very much indeed.

Sending you my gratitude and appreciation.

With love & best wishes,
From Annie Lennox

 

Thank you, Ms Lennox, for sending the card. No matter what you have achieved, you still have courtesy in you.

 

 

Powerful performer with a big  heart.

    It is a very kind gestures from Annie Lennox to write a thank you note to Rinpoche. Despite her being famous and having tight schedule she did not forget the kindness of Rinpoche for sending the gift to her. A gestures that we must always remember.
    Rinpoche has many great and creative ideas to spread dharma to many people around the world.

    Rejoice for Rinpoche is well know globally.

    Hence Annie Lennox show the most gratitude way by write a this beautiful card by hand writing and use the normal post service. It truly touch our heart…

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing and always use to skillful ways to benefit peoples all around the world…

  4. Beatrix Ooi on Dec 5, 2013 at 1:52 am

    Her card has proved it all, she’s a wonderful human being fulled with kindness. Just her sitting down, writing the letter has proved that she is grateful. I’m very inspired by her, although she’s already a big star but she doesn’t act like one, very humble indeed. Great human being!

  5. Jennifer on Dec 1, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    Through this story of Ms Lennox, Rinpoche has taught us yet again to show kindness not just to people we know, it should be extended to strangers and in this case someone in distance so far away. And Ms Lennox being a star herself, in return has set a good example to teach us to be humble whoever we are should always be appreciative when kindness is extended.

    Thank you Rinpoche!

  6. Wan Wai Meng on Dec 1, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    Thank you Annie Lennox may your spiritual and charity works be of benefit to many people. May you keep doing it for the benefit of many beings.

  7. Karen Chong on Dec 1, 2013 at 12:53 am

    It’s no doubt Annie Lennox is someone who earns respect from her kind gestures and she is a very good inspiration for all of us. She treasures human values hence she put her belief into actions. She is an activist for women, humanity, fundraiser for several charity organisation, and so on. For such a super multi talented and well-known lady like Annie Lennox would personally send a thank you note to Tsem Rinpoche for the gifts she received, it shows her level of mind. This virtue of gratitude touches us a lot. Thank you Annie Lennox!

  8. Sharon Ong on Nov 30, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    It is really heartwarming to know that a superstar like Annie Lennox has the courtesy to personally write a thank you note. She is truly a class act!

  9. Carmen K on Nov 28, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    Thank you for sharing this, Rinpoche.

    It is great seeing basic human values instilled in the very people that we look up to and admire. Celebrity or not, we all live in a world and co-exist together, and many people seem to forget that we are all just a tiny fragment in a huge universe. We forget to say thank you, we forget to pick up after ourselves, we forget to open the door for the person behind, we forget to push in our chairs..we forget many things. So when someone who is as successful as Ms. Annie Lennox shows gratitude and appreciation, it shows what a lovely person and an inspiration she is. These are the celebrities we should look up to, because they use their “status” for a better reason. And it shows that they’re just human..just like us. 🙂

    Thank you Ms. Annie Lennox for your lovely card. I wish you all the best and happiness in life.

    Carmen.

  10. Nancy Loo on Nov 28, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    Really admired and adored Ms Lennox for her kind concern and awareness. May all her meaningful works flourish all the way through.From this sharing, I reckoned that Rinpoche has also taken the opportunity to remind us not to use the word “busy” as an excuse to pursue Dharma works.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

  11. Lucas Roth on Nov 27, 2013 at 11:04 pm

    wow, it is so cool how she responded, and she responded saying she likes the Tara, she looked at the blog etc. I am glad she has a nice looks at Buddhism. i is so cool how she responded and has the Tara in London. thank you for sharing Rinpoche

  12. thierry on Nov 27, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Very nice thank you note from a remarkable lady that has shown more talents than her voice only.
    I have always been a fan of Eurythmics and today I am a renewed fan of Annie Lennox!

  13. LT Loo on Nov 27, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    Annie Lennox was such a great star to many of us during my teen, she filled our heart with sweet dream! Now fill even more hearts with warm love through her work as philanthropist. Thank you A.Lennox for you efforts._/\_

  15. Grace Leu on Nov 25, 2013 at 11:13 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. Ms Lennox really humble and show sincerity. She wrote the thank you card by hand writing and send by normal post, which currently seldom people do so because mostly will use email.May she get connected with Dharma…

  16. Sean Wang on Nov 25, 2013 at 8:25 pm

    It is wonderful to hear that Ms Annie Lennox has received Rinpoche’s gifts and actually replied! It is nice to see that some people have courtesy even though they have made it big in this world.

    I haven’t heard any of Annie’s music but I feel like doing so because she has done so much for people 😀

  17. Ck siah on Nov 25, 2013 at 5:58 pm

    谢谢仁波切的分享,Annie Lennox 也是我那时代的著名歌星,由其是那首” Sweet Dream” 也是我最喜欢听的歌,最近也出现在电视广告里。祈愿她有佛法的加持和幸福快乐。

  18. Uncle Eddie on Nov 25, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    As the saying goes, (sorry with a little-bit of changes)” A gifted-action with good righteous feelings speaks louder than a thousand words”. Even Anne Lennox seems so awfully impressed and felt soooo appreciated! Lessons of these sorts, Rinpoche will have
    scores of them to show and to teach the willing! Thank you Rinpoche for the valuable and skilful teaching!

  19. AdelineTan on Nov 25, 2013 at 3:43 pm

    Being a multiple award winning mega singer-songwriter, Ms Lennox is still a very humble and courteous person from the inside who took time to reply personally to Rinpoche’s gifts she received at the right timing. I am sure those gifts she received from Rinpoche can be of benefit and bless her, may she be able to meet Rinpoche one day and also continue to benefit the sick and the poor through her fame and success. Ms Lennox, you are so kind and generous very inspiring!

  20. wansan on Nov 25, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing and also Thank You Ms Lennox who has always been an inspiration to many out there.It is definitely very rare to have celebrity who personally writes a Thank You note back. How humble is she!

  21. Vinnie Tan on Nov 25, 2013 at 4:09 am

    It is just so great that people from all over the world get gifts from Rinpoche, and I am very happy that all appreciates all these gifts.

    I am so thankful to Rinpoche for spreading and planting Dharma seeds in so many people. Thank you Rinpoche for turning the wheel of Dharma for all of us. Providing Dharma knowledge to all of us within the reach of our convenience.

  22. Ruby Khong on Nov 25, 2013 at 3:08 am

    This is so awesome. A personally handwritten card from Annie Lennox herself! Yes, very kind and very human gesture. One of the few celebrities who still has human courtesy. Very inspiring to know that. My wish: that she may have the opportunity (time permitting) to explore spirituality further AND that I may be lucky enough to meet this fabulous being in person one day!

  23. Wylfred Ng on Nov 24, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing.

    It is truly inspiring that a famous celebrity also spent her whole life to do charity work and speak for the weak community.

    I believe that through dharma, a normal person like are able to benefits others too.

    Thanks

  24. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Nov 24, 2013 at 10:14 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this uplifting news! It’s rare to see successful people would give back to the society with money and efforts to raise awareness. Not to mention reminding us about basic human courtesy.

  25. Patsy on Nov 24, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    Despite her busy schedule, Ms Lennox took the time to send a heart warming card to Rinpoche personally. She even put in the effort to check out Rinpoche’s blog. I am glad that Rinpoche’s gift arrived at the perfect time for her and that she may find peace and happiness always.

  26. Low Khjb on Nov 23, 2013 at 11:16 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.It is great to know that Ms Annie Lennox is indeed a remarkable person.Who display mindfulness and compassionate for those less fortunate.

  27. Alex C.J.Tan on Nov 23, 2013 at 10:46 pm

    Ms Lennox is so skilfully incorporate the title of one of Rinpoche’s books in her thank you note to Rinpoche.

  28. Choongs on Nov 22, 2013 at 11:32 am

    Positive intention/action begets positive intention/action, celebrity or not.

    Je Tsongkhapa – 27 Verses on Mind Training
    Verse (7)
    The seeds of action are positive and negative intentions. Any intention consciously rooted in selfless motivation, desiring only sheer goodness for all conscious life, will establish the stable ground of goodness and will universally generate rich results of goodness. Any intention even slightly weakened by selfish motivation undermines both the ground of our life and its fruits. Intention is the sole creative force of existence.

  29. David Lai on Nov 22, 2013 at 2:34 am

    Wow! I know Rinpoche was really into Annie Lennox at one point and he kept playing this song by Eurythmix – “Here Comes the Rain”. Rinpoche said that she loved to see Annie Lennox perform live because of her electrifying charisma and presence. I learn the love the song along with some of the newer songs by Annie like her rendition of Whiter Shade of Pale and No More I Love Yous. Its just incredible and heartwarming card from Annie Lennox. This is the first from any celebrity – a celebrity with a heart!

  30. mary krieger on Nov 22, 2013 at 1:46 am

    I was just listening to A.Lennox and surfing when I came across her card to you, ??!! Glad to see she is still an active force for truth and light Thank-you for sharing

    • David Lai on Nov 24, 2013 at 11:01 pm

      Welcome to Tsem Rinpoche’s blog and I hope you do stay and come back. There’s a lot on offer here :- spirituality, news, the workings of a spiritual organization, musings and a whole lot more. Rinpoche is also very active on twitter (@tsemtulku) and also on YouTube (Tsem Rinpoche). He was raised in America and hence, he has a very unique way of delivering Buddhism to the modern individual. Do check him out.

  31. Joy on Nov 22, 2013 at 12:27 am

    Really glad to see this! I’m happy for Ms Lennox to have the merits to receive the gifts from Rinpoche and that it came at the perfect time for her.

    This is why Rinpoche spends so much money and so much time and energy in buying gifts and selecting gifts to people all the time… because you will never know how a gift an touch someone’s heart, and evern change their lives! I dare say that almost all of us, that is in Kechara, one way or another have received some kind of gift of care from Rinpoche! Every gift has a prayer done for it to benefit the receiver.

    It is also very inspiring to see how humbling Ms Lennox is… she actually took the time out to write Rinpoche a sincere heart warming card. She even made the effort to check Rinpoche’s blog on. What an appreciative person… this goes to show that even though she is a mega star… she is still has a warm human with a heart which is to me makes her all the more an inspiring star! Thank you Ms Lennox and hope Rinpoche’s gift brings you much blessings, opens up seeds and may you find peace & happiness always 😉

  32. pema thrinley on Nov 21, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    so touching

  33. Wendy Loh on Nov 21, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    🙂 It is amazing when two great souls inspire and encourage each other. Thank you, Rinpoche.

  34. Sofi on Nov 21, 2013 at 6:49 pm

    Wow, that was very nice of Annie Lennox to reply personally to Rinpoche’s gifts. She projects herself as a powerful singer with her strong mind and attitude, yet a very private person very much in control. In her letter of thanks, she revealed her soft side – “why I make myself unhappy”. It was very kind of Rinpoche to reach out to her and provide a bit of “peace of mind”. How timely the gifts reached her!!!

  35. Edwin Tan on Nov 21, 2013 at 6:26 pm

    It is wonderful to know huge celebrities like Ms. Lennox is an inspiration to other to do good and practice humanity.

    Whilst some do not have the fortune to meet a spiritual teacher, philanthropists like Ms. Lennox would have touched their hearts.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing such beautiful post about her.

    I am inspired to do more for the community and Dharma.

  36. KH Ng on Nov 21, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    Thanks Ms Lennox. You are an inspiration to others!

    Duldzin Drakpa Gyeltsen

    Tsongkhapa praised Drakpa Gyeltsen for his strict mastery of the monastic codes. He is known for his writing on the Vinaya as well as on the Sarvadurgatiparisodhana tantra. Most of his known compositions are currently unaccounted for.

    Murder in Drepung Monastery: Depa Norbu

    As with any story of success, there always comes with it tales of jealousy and envy. In Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s life story, this is represented in the form of Depa Norbu. It was at Depa Norbu’s hand and under his orders that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was murdered. While the run-up to the actual murder differs according to varying traditions, the end result is always the same — a hugely popular lama of high repute, erudite scholarship and unstained reputation was found dead with a khata (ritual silk scarf) stuffed down his throat.

    I rejoice to see the 11th Panchen Lama has started to teach, fulfilling his duty as a high lama. The Panchen Lama reincarnation lineage is as important as the Dalai Lama reincarnation lineage. The previous Panchen Lama was highly respected by Tibetans and Chinese, he was a very high lama. The current incarnation has learned from a very qualified teacher and thus he is also very qualified to teach.

    I have seen a video of him speaking in Chinese, he speaks very well and he is also very charismatic. He is still young, I am sure he can do a lot in preserving and spreading Tibetan Buddhism.

    In 1987, the China Disabled People’s Performing Arts Troupe was formed. They are a professional performing arts troupe made up of 106 performers with hearing and/or visual impairments or physical disabilities. For the next 20 years, the 106 performers worked hard to turn professional in 2000. By 2004, they gave up their government allowance, began supporting themselves… and started raising money for charities! So beautiful no matter what angle you look at it from.

    Aged between 14-19, they slowly-but-steadily learned the art of dancing through sign language with other trainers. To make up for the lack of one or more of their senses, they put in more time, effort and have immense determination. Determination is the key for all success for anyone.

    For any one dance that they perform, they can spend up to one year practicing it for an average of 6-10 hours a day! Each move that they make is practiced about 100 times!!

    They have acquired international recognition and have performed in highly-recognised venues such as Scala in Milan, Carnegie Hall in New York, The Kennedy Center (for Bill Clinton), the Opera House in Sydney and “The Egg” in Beijing. They have performed in more than 60 countries (10 times in the USA alone), been invited to perform at events such as the closing ceremony of the Paralympics in Athens (2004) and Miss World 2004 pageant… and was designated as “UNESCO Art for Peace” by the Director-General of UNESCO!

    Daibutsu (or 大佛/大仏) means ‘Great Buddha’ or ‘giant Buddha’ in Japanese. It can also be used informally to refer to a big Buddha statue. One such statue is in Kamakura, Japan. The Daibutsu is a statue of Amitabha Buddha and is called The Great Buddha of Kamakura.

    The statue dates back to 1252 AD, and is of Amitabha Buddha in sitting position. The statue is approximately 13.35 meters tall, weighing approximately 93 tons and is made from bronze. It is hollow and visitors can enter to view the interior.

    According to the temple records, the current statue was preceded by another wooden Daibutsu. A court lady named Inadano-Tsubone, who was an attendant of Shogun Yorimoto, had raised funds together with a priest named Joko. When they collected enough funds, they started the construction work in 1238. That statue took 5 years of construction, but was destroyed after a storm hit the area in 1248. The hall that covered the statue was also destroyed.

    They constructed it again, but this time they collected more funds and made a bronze statue. They then constructed a hall to shelter the statue… but it was yet again destroyed in 1335 during a large storm. The hall reconstructed once again, but a typhoon in 1368 brought it down. The 4th (and final) reconstruction of the hall stood for 127 years, until a tsunami hit Japan and destroyed it. However, the bronze statue remained intact and it has been left under the open air since.

    The serene and majestic Mount Fanjing (or Fanjing Shan 梵凈山), its peaks towering above the cloud banks, is steeped in Buddhist lore and tradition. ‘Fanjing’ (梵凈) means ‘Buddhist tranquillity’. In another explanation, the mountain received its name “Fanjing”, as an abbreviation of Fantianjingtu, a Buddhist term which means “Brahma’s Pure Land”. Mount Fanjing is also called Yuejing (Moon Mirror) Mountain because the temple at its peak can be seen reflected on the surrounding smooth rock on a clear moonlit night.

    Mount Fanjing is part of the Wuling Range in south-western China’s Guizhou Province. Its highest point stands 2,572 meters above sea level and the misty summit is the highest of the entire range. For centuries, both the mountain and the surrounding jungles have been a sanctuary for Buddhist masters seeking solitude in nature. Numerous Buddhist temples are spread across the peaks and slopes, most dedicated to Maitreya and Buddha Shakyamuni. Maitreya, or The Next Buddha, is the patron Bodhisattva of Mount Fanjing.

    In an area of some 120 square kilometres, not far from the picturesque Mount Huangshan, and located in Qingyang County, Anhui Province in China, is a haven that is nestled between the Yangtze River and the Yellow Mountain. Here, in a verdant landscape of pine trees and walls of tall swaying bamboo, lined with streams, waterfalls, hidden caves and rocky configurations, 99 peaks rise up from the soil and protrude through the clouds. The tallest peak is called Shiwang Peak (Peak of Ten Kings) that sits at an elevation of 1,342 metres above sea level. This summit is well known, as are eight of the nearby peaks – Tiantai Peak, Tianwang Peak, Lianhua Peak, Duxiu Peak, Luohan Peak, Wulao Peak, Fuhu Peak and Furong Peak.

    Together, the peaks are known as Jiu Hua Shan (Mount Jiu Hua) or the Nine Glorious/Heavenly Mountains and are considered to be the abode of the Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha, known as Dizangwang Pusa in Chinese.

    Jiu Hua Shan is one of the four holiest sites of Chinese Buddhism. The other three are Mount Wutai in Shanxi province, Mount Emei in Sichuan and Mount Putuo in Zhejiang.

Pu Tuo Shan is believed to be the bodhimanda (place of awakening) of Avalokitesvara, more familiarly known as Guan Yin in China. Due to this believe, Pu Tuo Shan gained its place as one of the five holy mountains in Buddhism and flocks of pilgrims visit this place all year round to get blessings.



    During the Tang Dynasty, Pu Tuo Shan became the center of Chinese Buddhism solely for Guan Yin, while the silk road was being constructed and developed. Ever since then, Pu Tuo Shan has been the main destination for all Guan Yin worshipers. Guan Yin (or Chenrezig, or Avaloketishvara), resides as the patron Bodhisattva on Mount Putuo.

    Pu Tuo Shan consists of many temples and monastic institutes, besides being a place of study for the holy Dharma, it is also a place where many people visit for geological, marine and forestry studies.

    Being together as a family builds family unity, creates wonderful memories for children and is a great way to relieve stress and instill family values. Nice to know about Kechara’s land is rich to to grow organic vegetables that is free of pesticides and chemicals. As we know that organic foods are much more healthier than non organic for many reason. It is pricey but rich in nutrients, minerals and vitamins.

    Though organic foods have become more and more popular recently, parents need to start making the correct choices for their children on a daily basis. Thanks for the sharing, had a good view of the fresh and healthy greenery vegetables. Felt very happy for the son who had a great time to work together with his father.

    Despite of all those hardships, Rinpoche had gone through, with Rinpoche having a strong imprint, courage and determination Rinpoche was where today. Rinpoche had to work at Fotomat, for a living to support himself , got robbed , meeting customers and so forth. Rinpoche yet remained happy as Rinpoche could carry on as usual doing long sadhana of Vajra Yogini and Heruka and many mantras.
    Back at his studio apt of Fenmore Apts, Rinpoche could do sadhana and prostrations in the room while his friends will be singing. Not everyone could concentrate with the noise but Rinpoche could. That’s incredible in such a situation.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing Rinpoche’s encounter happening before during and after Rinpoche met HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Its an encouragement , inspiration for us .

    Rinpoche was indeed a man of multi task ,from a friend, teacher, planner, writer to a coordinator to name a few. Rinpoche down to earth doing all for everyone,benefiting them more than himself. Wow …Rinpoche for seen in all the constructions of Kechara Forest Retreat . Truly amazing, the planning of the hall and those statues as well . Rinpoche would always involved whatever he could for the benefits of all from A to Z. Rinpoche has such wisdom, compassion, love, care and true connection with all of us.. It’s the connection and humanity of a teacher and that is something really beautiful to see.
    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this with us.

    Sentient beings come to this present life from their previous lives and take rebirth. Positive karma are created and their imprints remain on the consciousness. H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has always wanted to be a monk, since young. He had a very strong imprints from a previous existence , that Rinpoche enjoyed drawing images of Buddha and keen to read Buddhist books. Rinpoche will somehow go and looked for Buddhist Temple to practice Dharma teachings without his foster parent knowledge. Rinpoche could be a movie star but Rinpoche chose to be a monk where Rinpoche would benefit to all sentient beings. Well, Rinpoche had since kept his vows until the last day . Rinpoche did say before that the happiest days of his life was at the monastery serving his teachers.
    Thank you Pastor David for sharing this short post.

    The Guangxi Community in Bentong

    Bentong is one of the few towns in Malaysia which has a majority of Guangxi Chinese within the Chinese community. Based on the information I gathered from the Bentong Guangxi Association, it is estimated that around 75% of the Chinese population in Bentong can safely trace their ancestry back to Guangxi Province, China. Notably, about 90% of the Chinese population in the Perting Chinese New Village are Guangxi Chinese.

    The Sacred Vajrayogini of Ratsag Monastery

    Ratsag is a contraction of Ra Lotsawa’s clan name and the Tibetan expression tsagsutsu, which means “success.” This indicates that Ratsag Monastery was the last of the set of 108 monasteries that Ra Lotsawa pledged to build. His connection to Ra Bende Yonten Gyalpo of the inscription, aside from sharing the same family name, remains unknown. Nevertheless, the occupants of the monastery and the local people all continue to regard Ratsag Monastery as being founded by Ra Lotsawa.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
