107 at Kechara Forest Retreat!

Aug 13, 2012 | Views: 1,402

Last night, our Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) team organized another exciting event at our retreat land in Chamang. The day started with a morning durian party attended by Datin Ng (jindak), Datuk May (Kechara House president and Head Liaison), Dato’ Ruby (President of Kechara Soup Kitchen), Liaison Henry Ooi (Director of Kechara Paradise) and Angel.

Datin Ng is a long-time student of mine. She is loyal, helped me in many times of need in the past and has been a steady supporter of many Kechara projects. This trip was for Datin Ng, as she wanted to take a look-see at an exciting project Datuk May is spearheading. It was her first time visiting and touring around KFR’s land, with Datuk May showing her what has already been done as well as our future plans. Welcome my dear Datin Ng!

Later in the afternoon, Ms Allison, also came for a short tour at KFR. Allison is a very good florist, and it is because of her experience and skill I am able to have such realistic-looking artificial trees all around my house!

While Allison was touring around KFR, the Ladrang staff came earlier to help prepare for the arrival of 107 guests. The itinerary for the guests was: a short prayer, dinner and an outdoor movie screening! I was told that for days many people were excited about watching a thriller movie in the jungle, under the stars hehe.

The guests arrived at KFR at 5.30pm by bus. They then offered butterlamps and flowers to Buddha Shakyamuni and Vajrayogini… how meritorious! After touring around the area, Pastor Susan held a short puja. Dinner was catered by Kechara Oasis, and guests ate while watching the sun set… they then grabbed some snacks as the projector came on and aired “The Village”!

Everything was so neatly set up by the KFR team led by Sofi Lim and a few other devoted students determined to share a piece of happiness at KFR. Everyone pulled in resources to make this event work, including two dedicated Kecharians, Any and Bean, who kindly leant their equipment to create an incredible outdoor cinema!

There were many new faces yesterday. Many Kecharians brought their friends along… but among these new faces were 2 volunteers who flew in from overseas: Metok, a Vietnamese lady in her 50’s who has been living in San Francisco for many years… and Yinxi, a 21 year old boy from China who aspires to be a translator. I’m happy that they got to go with the group to KFR!

I am looking forward to hear more exciting news from the KFR team and for them to carry out more fun and meaningful events such as this consistently… from what I heard, the next event is a karaoke. Karaoke in the forest?? Hehe

I thank everyone involved in this great event. Everyone did such a great job under the leadership of our liaisons of Kechara. I thank my blog team for this wonderful post made ready for me to share with the world!

    Good memories ~ Thank you Rinpoche for posting this so that those of us who weren’t there, know what has happened in the past.

  2. Hiram on Mar 12, 2014 at 10:34 am

    I believe what you typed made a ton of sense. However, consider this, suppose you typed a catchier title?
    I am not saying your information isn’t good., however what if you
    added something that grabbed people’s attention?
    I mean 107 at Kechara Forest Retreat! | Tsem Rinpoche is a little
    plain. You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write news titles to grab people to click.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two
    to grab readers excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it might make your posts a
    little livelier.

  3. roofing beaumont texas on Nov 28, 2013 at 6:23 pm

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything. However just imagine if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this
    website could definitely be one of the best in its niche.

    Excellent blog!

    I am just so happy that there were so many different activities that happened at KFR. It is just great to know what the Kecharians are able to do with minimum things that were around them at that time.

    As compared to how KFR is now, it is very different. I am shocked with the amount of changes that has happened with how KFR looks like a year before and how it looks like now.

    Thank you to all the KFR comms who organized this wonderful trip for us. I enjoyed it so much. That day was sunny yet not too hot, just nice. Look at our face, then you know how much we all enjoyed it. KO did a good job of set up of nice food for us. After dinner, we had our movie! That’s my first time lying on the ground under a big dark sky watching movie. Wow.. amazing experience. Hey my dearest KFR Comms, when are we having this kind of luxury life style in KFR again?? heheh.. Thank you. I had a wonderful wonderful time..

  15. sweekeong on Aug 25, 2012 at 12:41 am

    What a wonderful trip! with food and movie as well 🙂 Everyone is blessed to be there by making connection to KFR which will bring many benefits to the public in the near future, it is already bringing benefits now for those who are involved in the project.

    I hope I will have the opportunity to visit there again 🙂

  16. EricLee KHJB on Aug 21, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    真的很开心KFR的计划可以继续的进行。也很高兴有越来越多的人认识到kechara有一个可以让很多人都受益的地方正在进行着,希望有更多的人都能够参与那么有意义的project,因为仁波切曾经说过,单靠一个人的力量,就没有能力完成,如果结合大家的力量,无论再难的计划,都一定能完成,所以,让我们一起来加油吧。。。。。

  17. June Tang -KHJB on Aug 21, 2012 at 12:22 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all the lovely pictures. Datuk May and teams and all the volunteers are working so hard for our KFR, it looks very very beautiful, I could see a lot of love and care put into it. Very happy to see all visitors with smiling faces in the pictures^_^May KFR manifest swiftly and can benefit to more peoples!!

  18. Low ksjc on Aug 19, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    We rejoice for everyone who is present for the event.The organizers for the KFR outing is very creative.More event like this should be made available to the public or fellow members. This could be done for a good cause as it will create more memorable awareness for some and a faster way to give opportunity to the public to become sponsors to such an important homage Destination in Malaysia.
    May the KFR project be completed soon.

  19. abby f on Aug 17, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    it is excited to see so many people from many places come and visit Kechara! This is what Kechara for! Spreading Dharma to more and more people, attract people from all walks of life to connect with Lama Tsongkaha’s teaching! I am happy for the new comers, as they can enjoy themselves at KFR. My aunt and her friends were happy and pleasant to be there. Good job to the KFR team and the liasons! More trip please. 🙂

  20. Ron Wong on Aug 17, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    It was a perfect day when we arrived at KFR. Making candle & flower offering to Buddha Shakyamuni was a really unique & exciting experience. Especially under the iconic tree & in the middle of a forest. I also felt a sense of joy & peace while doing circumambulation around the Buddha.

    Watching the movie outdoor under the starry night is awesome. This is just the beginning, stay tune for more exciting activities up at KFR. The next one is on 25/8/12.

    Thanks Rinpoche.

  21. HelenaC on Aug 17, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    It was an awesome day out with all Kecharians and guests from all over. It was auspicious to make flower and candle offering to Buddha Shakyamuni. Evryone is so happy and excited! Its the first time i have buffet in a forest and to watch scary movie in the woods hehehehe…nice and scary too. I am sure Kechara Forest Retreat manifestation will benefit many, because just looking at the people leaving KFR with smile, even it is still not fully develop. I am sure KFR will give many of us happiness and peace!
    Great job for KFR Team, can’t wait for the next visit 😉
    May Kechara Forest Retreat manifest swiftly.

  22. Carmen on Aug 17, 2012 at 5:42 am

    The activities at the outing we had at KFR was so simple, but yet so impactful in leaving everyone with a strong happy memory of the day itself. I could not have asked for a more amazing way to spend my Saturday.

    There was so much laughter and joy all around, imagine when KFR is running full fledged with its abundant of activities planned for the future. Busloads of people will keep on coming.

    Thank you to the KWPC team – Datuk May, Joe, Martin, Khoo and June, as well as the organising committee – Sofi, Grace, Doreen, KH Ng, Yik Ming amongst others who did so much preparation work to make sure the day ran smoothly.

    It was a blast as depicted from the many smiles in the pictures.

  23. Yvonne Yap on Aug 17, 2012 at 2:55 am

    Kechara Forest Retreat is getting more beautiful and now we can make offerings at Shakyamuni’s altar/ How nice!
    Thank you everyone who made it such a memorable experience for everyone who went for the visit.

  25. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 16, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    107 is one short of the auspicious number 108 hehe. Who knows maybe there that extra 1 person not counted yet or invisible hehe. Just my imagination running wild I suppose.

  26. wei theng on Aug 16, 2012 at 2:58 pm

    It is a wonderful trip to KFR especially we brought along our girls. This is the first time they went to KFR and they are very excited. Even the youngest is very well behave and corporative. I think it must be the environment is so blessed by the Buddha Dharma.
    We let the girls to have candle offerings to the Buddha & VY and wish that they are always be with Buddha Dharma, able to learn and next time can spread Dharma too.

    Thank you to the KFR team, the working committee of this outing, the Ladrang Team and all that make it happened. May KFR manifest soonest and can benefit to more people and beings!

  27. DR on Aug 16, 2012 at 10:47 am

    This is what the Kechara family is all about; A family that prays together, stays together. Kecharians are one of the most hard working spiritual group, filled with highly qualified and dedicated staffs, full time volunteers and members from diverse backgrounds. We work, play, dream of visions together. And soon, we will have one of our many dreams turn into reality; Kechara Forest Retreat. Every moment i am reminded of how blessed I am to be a part of this group of great people, closely and lovingly guided by our Spiritual Guide HE Tsem Tulku Rinpoche.

  28. yenpin on Aug 15, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    好开心来到克切拉禅修林,一日游。我们大家在这里做蜡烛供养,还有供花,又可以接触到宁静的大自然环境。
    还提供电影给我们看。
    如果大家觉得城市压力大,想要放松心情,就放自己一天假,来参加克切拉禅修林的一日游与宁静的大自然接触。

  29. Lim Han Nee on Aug 15, 2012 at 12:06 pm

    Happiness written on the faces of all who were there visiting KFR on that memorable Saturday! Great to see friends from abroad visiting too! Lovely to see Datin Ng looking excited about KFR and where it’s moving towards!Thank you Rinpoche for conceiving KFR , a vision becoming a reality!

  30. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 15, 2012 at 4:04 am

    Amazing people in an amazing location. So nice to see Datin Ng getting information about what KFR will be like. Rinpoche always mentioned that many of the pivotal moments he always had help from women.

  31. JP on Aug 15, 2012 at 1:26 am

    Had a great time at Kechara Forest Retreat. It makes a huge difference to gather in the midst of nature. A wonderful break from the concrete jungle of the city. My friend’s 2 sons, Shen and Wei decided to stay back while my friends had to attend a family gathering in the city.

    I was happy for the 2 boys as they don’t have much experience of dharma activities. They live in the UK with their parents. So it was a wonderful opportunity to hang out and pray.

    Watching a movie in the open air was an awesome experience as well. The movie was called, The Village. The acting and plot were excellent. It’ll be great to have more of this al fresco movies in the future especially when KFR is up.

    • LilyTan on Aug 16, 2012 at 10:32 am

      Thank you JP for looking out for Shen & Wei. Pleasantly surprised but joyful that they chose to stay behind. They would have been bored at the dinner! They thoroughly enjoyed themselves & I am sure this is the highlight of their holiday certainly for Wei. KFR had left an impact on him!

      What a virtuous way to spend an evening. As usual everything was so well-organised & all thoughts were given to the comforts of the visitors. Kudos & thank you to the team for making this an enjoyable event.

  32. justin cheah on Aug 15, 2012 at 1:12 am

    This is like a big family outing really! It is so happening in KFR! So nice to be there! Thank you for sharing out the photos!

  33. Wah Ying on Aug 15, 2012 at 12:15 am

    Our KFR is so lively and beautiful with so many people from all over the world. Pure bliss!

    Durian + Outdoor cinema on a retreat land, hehe, very Kechara style la. I like.

  34. william on Aug 15, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Congratulations to the Organizing committee who have successfully organized this movie outing event for members and friends. I truly enjoyed myself. And never would I have ever imagined so many people coming together as One Kechara to pray and watch a movie together at KFR in this beginning stages. There will be more exciting events to come.

    Of course it was really nice to see Datin Ng at KFR for the first time. Thank you Datuk May for the yummy durians. Thank you Bean and Any for the wonderful music system that enable use to watch the movie.

    I am so looking forward to the next event!!

  35. MayOng on Aug 14, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    No worries, folks for there is going to be another trip to KFR soon in 2 weeks time. We received suggestions for open air karaoke in the next round. That day on KFR was awesome! Excellent weather, hard working KFR team and Ladrang, Datuk May, Datin Ng, volunteers, members and overseas visitors made the trip exciting and memorable! Cannot thank Bean and Any enough for their great audio n video outdoor system for all to enjoy. Thank you, everyone!

  36. Phil on Aug 14, 2012 at 7:54 pm

    It was really fun at KFR that day! Thrilled to see so many people up there. I love to be at KFR. Air’s refreshing, many greens around..I can imagine Kechara Retreat Center built there…pure bliss!

  37. Jace Chong on Aug 14, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful place!

    I enjoy the itinerary of the day very much, it’s leisure and spiritual. KFR team and the member committee has done such a nice job. I especially enjoy the movie under the stars.

    The most important thing is we create the awareness of KFR to more people, that this is a good place for you to unwind and relax, a good place to practice spirituality as it’s away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

    I love KFR because it can benefit so many people and beings. May it manifest swiftly with all the supports from lots of people!

  38. Datin Ng on Aug 14, 2012 at 4:10 pm

    Had a great day at KFR. I take pride in Datuk May and team who made it easy for all of us to be there. As we know, this is another vision of our guru for the growth of the holy dharma in Malaysia. May we pray for the triumph soon to see…. rejoice proudly!!

  39. KH Ng on Aug 14, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    Hi All. Thanks KFR team and all volunteers for the great trip and and all for coming. We are planning another trip for 25th of Aug. Not movie though. Something different. Please look out for the announcement soon. Cheers!

  40. judy.lam@kechara.com on Aug 14, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    Kudos to KFR team and everyone who put in so much effort to make this happen. Everyone seemed very happy & having a good time. It was very nice to see Datin Ng visiting KFR. Hope there will be another opportunity to visit KFR again and experience the fun and beautiful natural setting!

  41. Sheryl KH (JB) on Aug 14, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    Very nice to read through a brief explaination about the day trip and the many photos here. Thank you Rinpoche for your sharing.

    I see many happy faces, people who are still very young and those who are in their mid age, I see families, as well as people who happen to be here from overseas. A great gathering indeed.

    I feel it quite special to have a mix of both dharma and modern activity (Movie on ‘The Village’). It must have been a special day for all the participants.

    All these pictures will become so memorable once KFR is built up. Many things appear tough at the beginning because there will always be obstacles on our ways. If everyone chips in their efforts willingly and with enthusiasm, many things seem impossible is possible.

  42. verontung on Aug 14, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    This is really interesting and excited by just looking at the photos. Especially with flowers, candles, and DURIANS! Thank you for sharing all the photos!

  43. Any Loke on Aug 14, 2012 at 11:26 am

    Is really wonderful to see everybody doing their part to make things happened. This is the kind of group work that we really needed in all of our future project. So nice to see all the happy faces in KFR. It makes you wanted to do more for others. Giving is much important then receiving.
    Compliments to KFR committee and all Ladrang staff especially to Datuk May for being there early and the last to leave and also to the contribution of Datin Ng. You all are incredible.

  44. Don Buchwalter on Aug 14, 2012 at 7:02 am

    Fantastic pictures! Thanks for sharing!

  45. Lim (KH JB) on Aug 14, 2012 at 3:16 am

    Rejoice for all Kecharians, the durians look so nice. Despite of that the whole day programs make all the visitors have a fruitful trip to KFR.

    From the photos above we can see that all the visitors are so happy, peace and cheer at KFR.

  46. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 14, 2012 at 2:41 am

    Durians? I did not know durians were part of this equation. All in all very good job by the KWPC committee to hold this for all Kecharians.

  47. bengkooi on Aug 14, 2012 at 12:48 am

    Wish I could’ve been there! The trip to KFR looks like so much fun and merits all rolled into one! And the idea of an outdoor night movie is awesome … hope that will happen at the next one too. I was very happy to see that Datin Ng visited KFR – we owe so much to Datin Ng for helping Rinpoche a few years ago when Rinpoche and Kechara had severe financial difficulties. Everything that we have now is because Datin helped us build the foundation for a bigger Kechara today. Thank you Datin!

  48. Grace ( KSJC ) on Aug 14, 2012 at 12:18 am

    What a nice gathering !! from the pictures, everyone is so excited and happy…really a wonderful idea to see the movie under the star…it must be fun to have karaoke in the forest…well done, KFR team & KH dept for the hard work to make the event successful..welcome all the new friends from oversea..

  49. lucy yap on Aug 14, 2012 at 12:15 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these great event and lovely pictures.

  50. Han on Aug 14, 2012 at 12:15 am

    WOW, very nice and beautiful smiling faces!
    KFR definitely will be a place for everyone to go for short retreat in the serene place like bentong in near future.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all the wonderful pictures.

  51. Alan Chan ( KSJC ) on Aug 13, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing with the wonderful picture to us even I not participate the trip , I can felt wonderful energy from kecharian to make it happen on KFR ! Kechara Boleh ! Kechara Can ! Kechara 能 !

  52. June Kang on Aug 13, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    Is a very happy day, the KFR team, and the working committee and Ladrang staff all work hand in hand to make sure the event successful. KFR team has very focus to get all things done especially Joe work very hard. On that day, myself and Joe went early to set up the place, and we make Khoo running the whole Petaling Jaya to buy things, hehe. Martin and Datuk May taking care of all the VIP and guest, sharing the KFR plan and progress.

    In the afternoon, Tsem Ladrang staff came earlier to help prepare for the arrival of 107 guests. Ladrang staff all were very helpful , they take order and do it happily. Around 5pm, the members arrived and the working committee guides them well.

    During ending, Tsem Ladrang staff stays back and help to clean the place, and can you imagine Li Kheng carried big and heavy boxes, she is so powerful.

    Thank you to Tsem ladrang staff and working committee to make this event successful.

    Dearest Rinpoche,
    Thank You for sharing the beautiful photos of the Movie Screening Event at Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR). Everyone is so happy with the background which some how or rather surreal and doesn’t look like in Malaysia. KFR is definitely GROWING with the hard work of Ladrang Staff and the effort of the dedicated Kechara Employees and Members. Congratulations!!!

    Thank You Rinpoche

    The day was sunny and hot but we had chilled young coconuts to wash down the durians. If ever Kechara were to open a durian stall, never have Joe Ang be the one to praise open durians. Poor Joe, he was struggling trying to open up the durians so much so his arms were shaking! LOL!

    Interesting fact Achi Chokyi Drolma rose to protect Drikung Kagyu lineage while Dorje Shugden who rose to protect the Gelug teaching.. It is very powerful how enlightened beings can transform mundane activities like marriage, feasting and having a family into something that benefits others.

    The road to Kechara Forest Retreat actually is dark but having the trust ,faith of our Guru and the Powerful Dorje Shugden’s protection we have nothing to fear.

    Daily recitation of Dorje Shugden prayers and mantra is very powerful for protection against ferocious spirits or demons. Thank you for this sharing.

    Tibet, on the northern side of the Himalayas, is an autonomous region of China. Also known as “Roof of the World” a country of immense natural beauty for its towering peaks and many beautiful scared lakes. Yamdrok Yumtso Lake is one of a power with natural beauty and very holy. Looking at those pictures in the blog tells us all. It is a beautiful turquoise-blue water lake mountain pass surrounded by snow capped mountains, island, pasture, temple, hot springs, wildlife and other natural landscapes. Yamdrok Lake is picturesque scenery, and it is in an organic whole of unique natural scenic. According to local folklore, Yamdrok Lake are considered sacrosanct by the Tibetan people is the transformation of a goddess and invested with special spiritual powers which is closely associated with Guru Rinpoche. Interesting read of the legend of that Dorje Geg Kyi Tso.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing with historic stories behind it.

    So powerful, octopus could actually attacked and eat an aggressive shark. One that might surprise us is such an soft spineless octopus could be killed shark. The incredible footage as shown in the video that a octopus successfully attacking and killing an unsuspecting spiny dogfish shark. The octopus use their strength to overpower the shark…amazingly where we do not expected it. Never judge anything by the look or size till the end result. In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Reincarnation is the philosophical or religious belief that the non-physical essence of a living being starts a new life in a different physical form or body after biological death. The major religions in Asia hold a belief in reincarnation, especially Hinduism, Buddhism ,Jainism, and Sikhism accept that the reincarnation of a being depends on the past karma and merit accumulated. Reading this interesting blog, we get to understand better, we could look around in our friends or family members for signs that show us evidence of reincarnation. Interesting to know about these unusual signs of reincarnation as mentioned in this blog.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    That’s great with the discovery of a massive 2,600 year old Buddhist Monastery in Mes Aynak, Afghanistan. Mes Aynak contains Afghanistan’s largest copper deposit, as well as the remains of an ancient settlement with over 400 Buddha statues. This archaeological site is located at the world’s second-largest unexploited copper mine. Sadly because of the Afghanistan an Islamic government in no way interested in Buddhism, had given Afghani archeologists three years to excavate and soon it will be destroyed. Some believe future discoveries at the site could have the potential to redefine the history of Afghanistan and even the history of Buddhism itself. This site is an outstanding and complex archaeological landscape, with astounding quality of preservation. Well even the archaeological evidence points to civilizations in the area flourishing as early as the 3rd century BCE. This is an old post, all these ancient Buddhist site were destroyed by now….Sad. Interesting read. Looking at those beautiful rare pictures of the discoveries tell all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful story…..The “Story of Buddha with Sick Man”. A good example for us to follow nor matter what happened or whom , we are to help each other and have compassion for all even its our enemies. Helping, supporting and taking care of each other is important in our Dharma practice. Having a perfect human body in this life, we have to live wisely and be grateful , learn and practice Dharma as life is short. We only live once, living harmoniously and peaceful will change the environment for us all to work and benefit more people in our spiritual practice. Harmony is the practice of the Sangha. If we have harmony, we have happiness. We don’t need to be perfect…..quoted.

    Buddhism has a long history in Indonesia, is the second oldest religion in Indonesia after Hinduism, which arrived from India around the second century. Reading this post reveal Indonesia has a rich and intricate history intertwined with colonialism and nationalism. The history of Buddhism in Indonesia is closely related to the history of Hinduism. Buddhists make up a small fraction of the population in the world’s largest Muslim-majority nation. As a number of empires influenced by Indian culture were established around the early 1st century. Many Buddhist temples were built and Buddhist texts were inscribed on the stones tablets. A number of Buddhist historical heritages such as the 8th century Borobudur mandala monument, ancient temples and numerous of statues or inscriptions were found in Indonesia tells us more about the earlier history of Indonesian Hindu-Buddhist kingdoms. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Valencia for this sharing.

    As cars have become one of the most significant aspects in the modern life, that’s a great idea, for all of us to invite Buddha statue in our car for protection and blessing.

    As we believe that laying eyes on a Buddha statues suppose to bring peace, harmony, happiness, blessing and protection. Besides, having Buddha statue in car does not just bring positivity to the owner but it may also benefit others who travel together.

    Thank you for your skillful sharing of dharma.

    Merely seeing Buddha images will definitely leave us an imprint in our mind stream. As advice by our Lama Tsem Rinpoche it is extremely important to go on pilgrimage to visit holy places and see sacred images of the Buddhas. I am fortunate to visit pilgrimage sites with friends , seeing is believing looking at some of the beautiful scared images of Buddha. To meet Rinpoche and practice Dharma on line in this life time, is a fortune for me. Well we have to learn and practice Buddha Dharma now, before its too late, create the causes for this life and future life to come and able to meet Maitreya the next Buddha to come. Interesting read about the next Buddha Maitreya.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this important sharing.

    A rescued dog name Star survived after been buried a life. Sad reading this old post , the poor dog had to undergo all the sufferings, cannot imagine what had the dog done wrong . Been abused, all four limbs tied together and even shot with a pellet gun. Not only that the someone who is so cruel buried that suffering dog in mud. Looking at the picture tells all. It really heartfelt to see that condition.
    Glad that Star was rescued and under gone emergency surgery to have those pellets removed. Miraculously Star survived whose horrific tale of torture on the island of Malta made international headlines. It had caused an uproar in Malta and led to calls for the country to revise its animal cruelty laws. Miracle, the dog who is fighting for her life after being left for dead, has recovered so well from her injuries and trauma . But sadly Star passed away somehow after been adopted to a family.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this

    Colorectal cancer starts in the colon or the rectum also known as bowel cancer, colon cancer, or rectal cancer. The majority of cancers develop from precancerous polyps but all polys are then cancerous . Consumption of animal products is likely to cause colorectal cancer. Researchers had proven that the frequent consumption is a risk factor for colorectal cancer. Foods such as chicken, red meat, fat-rich foods for example cheese, preserved meats, such as cured ham, hot dogs, bacon salami and so forth. The best choice is go meatless or vegetarian . Taking the meat or whatever so off from our menu list . I have seen how the colorectal cancer cells look like and how those patients suffered deadly . Is good to know all these information and be a vegetarian or meatless before its too late. Saving lives of those animals too is much appreciated.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing to bring awareness of these deadly cancer.

    A lot of people give a lot of excuses for themselves for not going after their dreams because they are afraid that they will fail. Form Rose story, it really inspire me that if we really put our effort to do it, we can achieved it regardless what’s your age.

    Rose already 87 years old but still doing what she want. I will remember this ” Obstacles are only obstacles when we allow them to be obstacles. Obstacles are in the mind and created by the mind.

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
