In Memory of Justin Ripley, 1975-2011

Dec 31, 2011 | Views: 2,940

On Friday, 23rd December 2011, I was in my room with Justin Ripley and one or two other people, and we were all having a conversation about work and the different things that we want to do. I even stuck in a short talk about impermanence and how our lives can end, and that we should do the best we can while we can to benefit others. This was specifically in reference to somebody in Justin’s life that we were talking about.

We had a wonderful two-hour conversation, and Justin was very happy because his brother Jason, and his mom were going to be arriving in Kuala Lumpur in half a day. We talked and talked about various things, and finally when we finished our conversation, he went downstairs to help with the other Ladrang people to do some work, and I was upstairs doing my other work. Then I had another meeting so I had to talk to another group of people.

About one and a half or two hours later which was around 7pm, suddenly JP ran upstairs and told me that Justin had collapsed, and that he was unconscious. That was when the whole unbelievable event happened. Within two hours of his collapse, he had a cardiac failure and had passed away, and it was just amazing because he was only 37 and I had just talked to him a few hours ago. So that day was an incredible shock for all of us.

While his body was in the hospital and then transferred to the morgue, his mother and brother were on the airplane, just a few hours from landing in Kuala Lumpur. I kept thinking to myself, “You know, this is just so terrible, that this person is waiting for his mom and brother to show up, whom he loves very much, and now his body is in the morgue and he’s not going to ever be who we know him as anymore.” How to tell his mom?

Shocked, bewildered and at a loss, we still had to carry on to inform the family, carry on with the procedures, and go on with the post-mortem. When they did the post-mortem, it was confirmed that it was a cardiac failure. Apparently, according to Justin’s mother, it’s quite rampant in the family among the male members.

I’m not going to write a lot here because I have spoken about him at the wake. We had a special wake for Justin in Kechara House, where he had touched so many people’s lives – over 120 people showed up to offer white roses, to share, to talk about how Justin has affected some of their lives. You can see the videos I’ve included in this post of the memorial at Kechara.

Justin was a student, a friend, a person that never created any type of problems, difficulties or hardship for other people. He wasn’t a saint but he definitely was a wonderful person. This blog post and the videos I’ve included here do not do near any justice to who he was. No type of dedication would be enough to describe Justin. But, this is my blog post in remembrance to him – a student and a friend. When I first met him like around 8 years ago or moree he was clubbing and doing all the stuff you do at clubs. Through speaking, talking and explaining the Dharma he left behind the club and came into Dharma and did alot of work in the Dharma.

WE MISS YOU, AND WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU.

I will be erecting a statue, 3 feet or more of Lord Manjushri, to be put in the monastery for you, Justin. It will be dedicated to you for the young monks to worship, and all the merits will go to your future rebirth. On top of that, your ashes will be saved, purified, and kept for Kechara World Peace Centre (KWPC). You will be up there with us, one way or another. I will have your ashed enshrined in the Monastery and up in Kechara World Peace Centre. You said to me a few weeks back that you wanted to be up in KWPC with us and that is where you like to live out your life. Well I am bringing ‘you’ up there.

I hope to meet you very soon again Justin. Take a good rebirth and come back soon. I am waiting. We are waiting……

Much care and affection,
Tsem Rinpoche

Jason, Justin’s older brother, spoke about what it was like growing up with Justin and what it was like to be his brother.

Although I wasn’t feeling too well, I thought that I should come to see Justin’s family. And also I gave a talk about Justin.

 

IMG_8329

I did a quick explanation on death, reincarnation and our consciousness leaving the body-  from which points/parts of the body the consciousness leaves, it determines where we will take rebirth in our next life.

    Everything about this post is emotional to be a stranger like me, I can’t imagine what it must be like for people who knew Mr.Ripley. What shines through is Rinpoche’s great compassion for his students since the moment one meets him till one dies. His compassion as they say in prayers written by his gurus that his bodhicitta is like that of ten million holders of the teachings of Buddha. We are lucky to witness his compassion in action. We are blessed.

    Hi there, You’ve done a great job. I’ll certainly digg it and personally suggest to
    my friends. I’m sure they’ll be benefited from this web
    site.

  3. beatrix ooi on Feb 24, 2013 at 11:27 pm

    I thought of Justin few days ago, I miss his smile. Every time when we see him, he will always greet us with a cheerful smile. Edward then will always give him a high-five. The last time I saw him was in One Utama, when we were having our dinner with my parents and aunty.
    May he come back as a healthy and dharmic person.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  4. Su Ming on Feb 17, 2012 at 8:29 am

    Not a day I do not think of Justin ever since he has been gone. From Haven to Ladrang and even to using my mobile phone reminds me of him. Even as I type, this blog was created by him along with Rinpoche and Joy. I remembered Rinpoche came down from his apartment and spoke to both Justin and Joy about creating this blog. Joy did the design and you did the technical side. It was created within a day on a computer in one of the private office in the administration section. Now this blog has benefitted so many out there. This blog has save people from suicidal, depression and etc. Rinpoche has received emails that because of this blog they will be a better person, husband, wife and friend.

    Rinpoche still talks about Justin till today, he was a pivotal part of Rinpoche life.

    Justin and how he has serve the dharma will always be an inspiration for many who knows him.

  5. pengki on Feb 15, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    Dear Justin Ripley,
    You will always be remembered as that big guy in worn-out jeans & dreadlocks whom taught me how to hold mandala mudra properly, thank you for being patience with me. To a gentle, soft-spoken, and friendly ‘giant’. _/\_

  6. TW on Feb 3, 2012 at 8:09 am

    Justin will be greatly missed, what a loving soul. Thoughts go out to Justin’s family at this time. May he rest in peace.

  7. Rickey Porter on Jan 11, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    My love goes out to Justin, his family, and friends.
    Happy Birthday Jus! (Taday. Jan 12) Rest in Peace.

    Thank you Tsem Rinpoche, for this post.

  8. fang on Jan 10, 2012 at 11:22 am

    Dear Justin,
    It’s never ‘Goodbye’, matey~
    I’ll see you later, alligator 🙂

  9. Su An on Jan 7, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    Justin, I’m sure you will have a good rebirth, after all you have done and dedicated your life to Dharma. Hope to meet you again in your next rebirth close to us, ripe and ready for KWPC!

  10. Frederick Law on Jan 5, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    Though i may have talk to Justin and met him few times, and formally introduce and known each other for not more than a month, Justin passing really shocked me, am really loss for words. Justin passing felt as if i lost a very close brother, although we just had a small conversation during one of the dinner and share some small joke, the sad feeling lingers for many days right up till the cremation day. Short encounter it was, but the feeling of losing a friend was without words.

    Justin kindness, compassion, and Dharma work really touched many, and i am one of them, your absent will be greatly missed together with you silent humor and joke. It was a great pleasure getting to know Justin, May you have a swift rebirth and come back soon to continue what you left off, many work are waiting for you, all of us will be waiting for you.

    Till we meet again Rock of Kechara. OM MANI PADME HUNG

  11. Lin lee on Jan 5, 2012 at 8:07 am

    Dear Justin. I was told once that everyone die successfully. Well my dear dharma brother you proved it! We all feel sad you are no longer with us but if leaving us so soon is beyond anyone’s choice, then you were very blessed. Rinpoche loved you and he is doing absolutely all he can for you! he also blessed you before you left us so unexpectedly. I rejoice for you as you have so much merits so don’t take too long before you come back! I hope I have the merits to meet you again on your return and maybe we can have more cooking lessons then!
    I won’t say goodbye as you will be back. Sorry I missed your memorial but you are such a sweet, kind, gentle person that I know you will forgive me ! By the way, watched it and you must agree it was beautiful.

  12. Jay Jae on Jan 5, 2012 at 5:21 am

    Good bye Justin,

    Thank you for being the brother u are to me.

    you will always be in my prayers until we meet again

  13. Roland on Jan 5, 2012 at 1:09 am

    For Justin: a poem for you.

    The Journey

    One day you finally knew
    what you had to do, and began,
    though the voices around you
    kept shouting
    their bad advice –
    though the whole house
    began to tremble
    and you felt the old tug
    at your ankles.
    “Mend my life!”
    each voice cried.
    But you didn’t stop.
    You knew what you had to do,
    though the wind pried
    with its stiff fingers
    at the very foundations,
    though their melancholy
    was terrible.
    It was already late
    enough, and a wild night,
    and the road full of fallen
    branches and stones.
    But little by little,
    as you left their voices behind,
    the stars began to burn
    through the sheets of clouds,
    and there was a new voice
    which you slowly
    recognized as your own,
    that kept you company
    as you strode deeper and deeper
    into the world,
    determined to do
    the only thing you could do –
    determined to save
    the only life you could save.

    ~ by Mary Oliver in Dream Work (1994)

  14. Li Kim on Jan 5, 2012 at 12:22 am

    I will miss you. No one can ever replace your accent in my ears. We will meet again in KWPC. Have a good rebirth my dearest Dharma brother…

  15. Koh Hee Peng on Jan 5, 2012 at 12:04 am

    I don’t know Justin in person. But I do know that he was part of the E-Division Team that has worked relentlessly to spread Rinpoche’s message and dharma teachings accross the globe via Internet, of which his selfless contributions have benefited many, including me.

    As being advised by H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche in the video, I would be chanting 1,000 Chenrezig mantras per day, for the remaining 49 days and dedicate the merits collected to his rebirth that he would not be seperated from his guru – H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and he would be born in places that are condusive for one to practise dharma.

    I think that is the least I can do for a great being like Justin.

    One might say that Justin is very unfortunate to die at such g age. To me, it is a blessing in disguise for one to die when one’s Guru is around, whom he/she has served selflessly, for the Guru would ensure that his/her next journey would be well taken care of.

  16. freon on Jan 4, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    Dear Justin,

    Please come back fast!
    Let’s Do Dharma together.

  17. Karen C. on Jan 4, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    Justin is a cool man who speaks very little, very kind and friendly, always greet me when i see him in Ladrang, he worked very hard to serve the Dharma and Rinpoche. May your strong guru devotion and prayers will lead you to a good rebirth and please, we all are waiting for you in KWPC! See you there!

  18. William on Jan 4, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    Justin,
    You will be greatly missed. You are one of the friendliest people I have met and will gladly help whenever help is needed. You have no air about yourself. When I think back, you have been there whenever i needed something in Ladrang and the roadshows. I will miss you and we shall meet again soon.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the teaching on death. I truly believe that Justin will be back with us. How fortunate is Justin to be able to be near his guru at his time of death.

  19. James Long on Jan 4, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    Justin is the first person who designed and sponsored Kechara Saraswati Arts first online Website many years ago, I do know understand his English that time, but he is always helpful, cleaning, moving, painting statues…

    Later he joined Ladrang E.Div and involved in so many website and blog work for the organization and Rinpoche. It is quite difficult to see his seat left empty after he passed away.

    Will see you soon Justin in KWPC…

  20. Lim Tat Ming on Jan 4, 2012 at 3:19 am

    Hey bro Justin,

    It has been a great pleasure knowing you. You are one of the nicest person i have ever met in this lifetime.

    Thank You very much for everything that you have done for the benefit of others. Words cannot express enough your contribution to others including me. Even your departure is benefitting others.

    You taught us the true meaning of life is to benefit others.

    You had proven to us that having a Dharma career like the one you had is the best thing to do in life.

    You have taught us one of the most important lessons in life i.e. Death & Impermanence.

    There are so much more to say …

    May you have a good and swift rebirth.
    May you always be in the presence of Guru, Yidam and Dharma Protector
    May you always be in the presence of Buddha, Dharma and Sangha

    See you soon Justin at Kechara World Peace Centre.

    OM MANI PADME HUM

  21. Ferry Djap on Jan 4, 2012 at 3:18 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I’m truly sorry to hear about the news. It’s a reminder how short our lifespan is and that we shouldn’t waste our time in meddling something that doesn’t benefit others. May his family and friends can get through this difficult time.

    Regards

    Ferry

  22. CPD- Centro Patologia Desenvolvimento on Jan 4, 2012 at 3:16 am

    All our scientific activities are also dedicated to Justin. We believe we are ALL connect.
    Love and Deep Gratitude from Portugal

  23. Ash Ng on Jan 4, 2012 at 2:33 am

    My dear Dharma brother Justin, do take swift rebirth and connect back to Kechara soon as your dharma works have benefited many beings around the globe. Looking forward to meet you again and this time let’s meet at KWPC…

  24. Nicholas on Jan 4, 2012 at 12:44 am

    Dear Bro,

    Not easy to accept that you are not around anymore. Will always remember the time with you checking the cctv, trying your new cooking recipe, massage, jokes, computer stuff…..

    Will miss you & come back soon.
    See you in KWPC!

  25. Sabina G. on Jan 4, 2012 at 12:42 am

    Much love and condolences to Justin’s family and friends.
    Thanks Justin, for all that you have done.

  26. Irene on Jan 3, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    You are greatly missed Justin dear. Rest in bliss but not too long for we want to see you at our World Peace Centre. Don’t be a slow poke okay?

  27. Siong Woan on Jan 3, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Dear Justin,

    You have done many many great things and touched so many people’s heart in your simple, kind and friendly way.

    Back in 2009, my son, CJ, and his friends looked forward to KSK’s Sunday evening rounds just because you were the team leader for Sentul route. You took us to countless back lanes (!!), showed us how to identify clients, tell us their stories and background and how to take care of those in need… also, the way you interact with teenagers was unique and they remember you dearly.

    You are indeed irreplaceable and we are fortunate to have met you in this life time, and look forward to meeting you again very soon.

  28. Ethan Chu on Jan 3, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    YO Bro! I miss you a lot. You are the one who greeted me each day and the last I see everyday. Ok, i’ll let you take a break for now. You’ll come back to KWPC ya. Lots of work waiting for you, you think you can escape? hehe… Bro, you are the coolest person i’ve met. Hope I’ll have to merits to meet you so soon in KWPC. Trust me, WE will recognize you!

  29. kevin Tan on Jan 3, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    i don’t know Justin well although I did bumped into him once in a while. From the memorial, I knew how he lived his life right to the end. He was happy doing what he did: for others. He had nothing and yet gave plenty. He was quiet but gave much reason for many to weep loudly. He came from afar to be near to dharma and Guru. A 21-Gun salute to Justin.

  30. Uncle Eddie on Jan 3, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    With our guru’s compassion, love and generosity for Justin, Rinpoche will be erecting a 3 feet or more of Lord Manjushri’s statute to nuture and create the merits for Justin to be able to take a good future rebirth soon, and to be part of KWPC. Rinpoche feels that all the good dharma work Justin had done to benefit others through Kechara is worth more than the lot he is doing for Justin now. We all do miss Justin greatly and have been aspired by his shinning example of how one should work for Dharma to be appreciated by all. Dear Justin, please come back soon, we are all waiting, waiting and waiting……………………….anxiously for you.

  31. Lim Han Nee on Jan 3, 2012 at 4:50 pm

    Dear Justin,

    Your family and all of us, your Dharma family in Kechara, will miss you for a long long time to come.But you will surely return and be in the Kechara World Peace Center to be reunited with your Dharma family( or, whoever, like you, have created sufficient right causes to be there).

    In life, you benefited countless beings by helping Rinpoche to spread the Dharma with the computer and keyboard. In death, you too have benefited and inspired. For by your sudden death whilst in the warm embrace of Dharma and our Lama, you have taught, with the most powerful impact of ‘direct experience’, the truth as taught in the Lamrim about remembering death – how death is inevitable; how when we die is uncertain; and how, nothing can help us when we die, except the Dharma.

    Thank you Justin.

  32. Datuk May on Jan 3, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    Death is not the end but a new Beginning. Justin, may you have a good rebirth and be back with your beloved Guru in KWPC.

    May your rebirth be as powerful in spreading the Dharma as you have given in this short life to benefit so many.

    I miss you, my computer tutor.

  33. patsy on Jan 3, 2012 at 4:14 pm

    Justin is a man of few words but his actions speak louder than words. A sincere and humble man, I was fortunate to have him as a friend for the last 7-8 years. Through his strong faith in Rinpoche, his dharma works had touched the lives of many.

    Justin, you will definitely be missed by all of us but we know you will be alright and will have a good rebirth. Do come back soon and see you in Kechara World Peace Center…. a place where you belong.

    Farewell, my friend…..till we meet again.

    My deepest and sincere condolences to Joy and the Ripley’s family.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing this post.

  34. Valentina Suhendra on Jan 3, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    Justin’s work, particularly on Kechara’s online assets have affected many people including me.

  35. Andrew James Boon on Jan 3, 2012 at 2:55 pm

    It is still hard to mention, talk or even look at a picture of Justin and not have my eyes well up with tears. I know this “missing him” will never go away but what keeps my spirits up is the fact that he did what he enjoyed most and that was to be in the Dharma and working alongside Rinpoche till the last moments of his life.

    What more can we ask for in this lifetime of delusions. I pray I will have the merits to see him again in this lifetime up in KWPC. Most of us will be old and grey and he would probably by a strapping young bright eyed and bushy tailed kid… hehehehe.

    Miss you and love you bro… Andrew

  36. Sharon Saw on Jan 3, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    Justin was the nicest, sweetest guy and even though i didn’t see him very often, every interaction with him was a pleasant one. He was always ever ready to help anyone at any time. The best way to remember Justin is to work hard to continue Justin’s work, which was to serve Rinpoche and to make KWPC manifest. I’ll miss you Justin and look forward to seeing you again very soon!

  37. su_zan on Jan 3, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    Dear brother,
    You make take a short rest for now. We will see you very soon in KWPC. Hopefully by that time I can recognized you and still alive when you are back.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful farewell picture and video with us. Justin will never be forgotten.

  38. Gisbert Pascal Roth on Jan 3, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    I have the privilege to have met meet Justin and I remember him as a beautiful, humble and kind person. A truly balanced being at peace with himself. Not much communication was needed then and also not necessary. May you go on Justin and be well. We will meet again, I am sure.

  39. bengkooi on Jan 3, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    Justin, you will be missed. I still look at your empty space each day, and wonder how you are doing. Wherever you are, I know you are under the protection of Rinpoche and will be fine in your next rebirth. See you again in KWPC

  40. Yee Ling Cheah on Jan 3, 2012 at 12:50 pm

    Dear Rinpoche
    Thank you for posting this beautiful farewell to Justin. Thank you for teaching us how to let go in this life for the good rebirth of a loved one. Goodbye Justin until we meet again. Condolences to Joy and the Ripley family.

  41. lewkwanleng on Jan 3, 2012 at 12:10 pm

    Justin, thank you for everything. Please come back soon, we have a lot of work for you 🙂

      Dear Justin,
      It’s never the same without you. I can’t just turn my head and ask you about resolving technical issue, no one to shout out to be on standby to receive Rinpoche, no more funny jokes on the whatsapp group, no more…

      But we will see you again Justin at KWPC, and yes, when you come back, we’ll give you a computer to login to the tsemtulku.com blog back end to see if it’s the real you!!!!

      Come back soon!!!!!

    Dear Justin, that day you came to ediv office and talked about how and when the idea of ediv was coming up from Rinpoche, you mentioned the ambitious goal of global domination by Rinpoche. You are part of the team who work at that… Hope you come back soon and continue to help the domination of compassion and love.

    Dear Justin Bro ,

  47. ngeowchin on Jan 3, 2012 at 10:11 am

    In Buddhism, we believe death is merely a transitory phase and not a complete loss.Nevertheless we will grieve Justin’s absence from this chapter in our lives and remember him both as a wonderful friend and also the amount of beneficial work he had done in such a short period in time. I was also a beneficiary of his kindness as are so many others .
    Dear Justin,may your strong samaya and devotion be the cause for a good rebirth to rejoin us quickly in KWPC.

  48. jp on Jan 3, 2012 at 9:47 am

    Justin is greatly missed in the Ladrang. He will never be forgotten. I look forward to meeting Justin again with open arms in Kechara World Peace Centre.

  50. Steve Tobias on Jan 3, 2012 at 7:02 am

    Very lovely montage, pictures, and post. My prayers go out to Joy, Justin’s family, his friends at Kechara. I was very familiar with who Justin was but never spoke to him personally. His actions offer an example of what we can aspire to achieve. My humblest wishes that Joy, and everyone else is doing well.

    Fauvism, style of painting that flourished in France . Fauve artists used pure, brilliant colour aggressively applied straight from the paint. Our Guru Tsem Rinpoche has commissioned a very special image of the Dharma protector Dorje Shugden in fauvist art, looking stunning.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing and a short explanation about fauvist art by those famous artist.

    Dogs or cats provide us with a sense of emotional wellbeing. They give us unconditional love, which is why they’re also great company and comfort for people who live alone. Having one companion make us happier and healthier. It is important to take care and protect them from harm. But when the owner passed away or old , it best to have a home or shelter for them till their passing. It would be wonderful to have such a place 24 hour clinics for pets like those in Japan. In Japan ,Non-profit organizations are working tirelessly to protect animals and to find new homes for those left by their passing owners. With these homes at least those cats or dogs have a home , love and taking care of. Wish we had this here in Malaysia too.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Wow! These looks so rich and yummy. Hot dog bun stuffed with a healthy nutritious, firm vegetarian sausage, which has the bite of vegetables and flavor of mustard, packed with smooth dressing. The recipe looks simply and easy to prepare, I will definitely try cooking this soon.

    Thank you so much for the delicious sharing, not only does vegetarianism meets all one’s nutrient needs, it promotes less health risks that come with eating meat.

    For many years fishermen have been targeting shark fins for their high monetary and cultural value. They are used in a popular dish called shark fin soup, which is a symbol of status in Chinese culture such as weddings and banquets. The continued demand for shark fin soup, dumplings, and other shark fin dishes are served in restaurants. All these resulting in the practice of finning, where an estimated millions of sharks being killed each year for their fins alone. Shark fin soup is a traditional soup usually found in Chinese cuisine. The disappearing of sharks is alarming due to over-fishing scientist has discovered. Sad sooner or later sharks will goes extinct in the oceans. It is wonderful that more people and even our local celebrities have also joined hands to put a stop to shark fin consumption. Their effort paid off and are raising awareness of the campaign against shark fin. Nowadays shark fins soup are taken off the menu in most restaurant. It is critical to reduce demand, when we could change our attitudes not to harm those sharks by consumption the soup and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many religions believe in Karma. Karma means a deed or an act. The three major religions that believe in Karma are Sikhism, Hinduism, and Buddhism.

    Life is about what you give, not what you get. It’s about putting into daily practice the kinds of things we’ve all heard many times. Do good for others and good may happen to you.

    As per the law of karma, every positive deed which we do, generates a merit, while every negative deed results in a demerit or sin which subsequently we need to repay by enduring happiness or unhappiness.

    Thanks you for the deeper understanding of karma.

    Heartfelt watching this video again, what a royal dog named Mimi was. Could imagined waited on the same spot for her owner who had left her for 8 years. Looks like the owner had intended to leave her there, when shifting house. Its only when the SPCA found Mimi’s owner she was taken back yet not for too long she was left alone again. Sad tale indeed when any one decide to own a dog think twice. A dog is a man best friend yet please don’t leave them at least gave to someone to care . Poor Mimi such a royal dog , sufferings from being left out, abused as stray dog and suffered through all the surgeries because of cancer. SPCA did a good job , thank you for taking care of Mimi.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of the story of Singapore’s Hachiko named Mimi.

    Thank you for the interesting article and deep discovering of the beautiful mother nature of Kedah. Besides the historical site, the largest producer of rice in Malaysia, Kedah is a land of peace and tranquility.

    The wonderful Kedah holds the most famous attractions in Langkawi Island, the sandy beaches to green forest parks and virgin rainforest on highlands. Kedah too is a great place for a good taste of northern Malaysian culture and the best relaxing vacation destination for nature lovers and the family.

    Worth to be on a vegetarian for many reasons such as health , making a positive environmental and ethical impact and saving animals life. For some people, eating vegetarian is a way to be healthier and for others, eating this way has more to do with religion, animal rights, or environmental concerns. Many studies have shown that vegetarians are less likely to get chronic diseases such as heart disease, cholesterol and diabetes. A vegetarian diet reduced the risk for cancer in general I would say that. But what is important basically is not to harm animals, give them a chance to live.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this simple meaningful 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

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep. One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya".
