The Man Who Created Bigfoot

Jul 1, 2016 | Views: 642

I have been fascinated by Bigfoot for as long as I can remember. Since I was a child, I have read and watched everything related to Bigfoot. Nowadays I’m a little bit busier LOL but I still try to keep up on the latest news and read when I can.

One of the most convincing videos I have seen proving the existence of Bigfoot is the Patterson-Gimlin film. The film was recorded by two men, Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin in 1967. They were out riding in the countryside one day when they came across a clearing which had recently been washed out by a flash flood. They recorded a female Bigfoot walking across the washed-out creek bed which was in a mess. The area was hilly and rocky, and had a lot of broken trees and debris lying around. She walked quickly and confidently, and didn’t stumble despite the uneven ground. Someone in a gorilla suit would find it difficult to move across such rough terrain with so much agility. Patty, as she has come to be called, paused for only a second to glance over in their direction before she disappeared into the thick forest.

The BBC hired the best Hollywood costume designer to try and recreate the encounter to show it was a hoax. As you can see, they were not very successful.

The film has been examined, analysed and basically been torn apart by experts around the world since it was first recorded in 1967. What makes it so compelling is that no one has ever been able to conclusively disprove it as a fake or a hoax. And even though the entire encounter lasted for less than a minute, it came to define their lives. In fact, both men ended their friendship over matters related to the film and did not reconcile until the day before Patterson passed away from cancer. The film however, has spawned a generation of Bigfoot enthusiasts who have reproduced Patty’s image on everything imaginable – t-shirts, mugs, statues, key chains, magnets, you name it, it’s been done.

In 2013, a small group of students and I visited Willow Creek, which is the world’s Bigfoot capital and near to where the Patterson-Gimlin incident took place in Bluff Creek. We drove around the local area which is called Humboldt County and visited Orleans Ranger Station near Bluff Creek, to see how we could get to the exact spot where the film was recorded. We spoke to some hotshots (wildlife firefighters), one of who happened to be a Bigfoot enthusiast himself. They told us that these days, it is very difficult to access the location due to the terrain. Also, the environment has changed dramatically due to repeated floods over the years so locating the exact spot is not easy without an experienced guide.

How an artist imagines the encounter took place, as seen from Patty's perspective. On the horses in the background are Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin.

We asked the firefighters if we could meet Bob Gimlin, thinking he might still live in the area. They told us that Mr Gimlin moved out of the area many years ago but before he moved, he kept a low profile and didn’t receive much visitors. It was because after the film was released, and after Patterson died, Gimlin alone faced a lot of criticism and mockery over the film, some of which was almost violent. In order to not draw attention to himself, he didn’t emphasise or highlight the film very much. When the firefighters told us, I was surprised as I had never heard of this before but it sounded plausible. Even today, Bigfoot researchers face a lot of skepticism and mockery for their interest.

So at the time, I didn’t know much about the background of the men who recorded this iconic film but now I do, thanks to this article below. I was happy to read that today, Mr Bob Gimlin is once again speaking openly about his encounter and educating the next generation of Bigfoot researchers. For his part, Mr Gimlin has always maintained that the film is real. And I believe him because why come out again and talk about it so strongly after facing 35 years of hatred and taunts and skepticism? What does an old man have to gain with lying about the film? Anyway I hope you find the article interesting and informative as I did. Please do let me know what you think about it in the comments section below.

The Man Who Created Bigfoot

By: Leah Sottile Jul 5, 2016

Bob Gimlin was a small town cowboy when his friend coaxed him into hunting the famous mythical creature 50 years ago. Today, as the legend of Bigfoot has grown, Gimlin is viewed by the community of believers around the country as something of a prophet.

For weeks in the fall of 1967 the cowboys rode from sunrise to sunset in search of the creature no one had ever captured on film. Two rodeo men from Washington’s apple country, they’d traveled to Northern California’s thick forest. They’d read headlines of unidentifiable footprints. The smaller cowboy was driven by a long obsession with the mythic beast known as Bigfoot; the other liked to see things for himself.

One late October afternoon near Bluff Creek, the men trundled on horseback, half a day’s ride from the nearest signs of civilization. The sun shone bright, lighting the leaves all around them in a grand finale of orange and red and yellow. Roger Patterson rode in front, pausing his quarter horse to point his lens toward the leaves, the film chattering inside his rented 16mm Cine Kodak camera. When he finished, he tucked the camera into his saddlebag, leaving the leather flap open.

Bob Gimlin brought up the rear. He rode a pony, leading a packhorse loaded with supplies behind him. Patterson navigated around a bend where a large tree had fallen and jammed up the nearby creek—its root system upturned and exposed, like blind fingers reaching for an anchor.

The horses saw it first. Patterson’s reared, kicking and protesting, then Gimlin’s. Less than 100 feet away, the men saw why: a hulking gorilla-like figure covered in dark hair hurried on two legs along the creekbed. Its sloped head and torso were pushed forward, its upper back hunched, thigh muscles rippling, long arms swinging, breasts exposed.

Patterson scrambled off his spooked animal, holding its reins just long enough to reach inside his saddlebag for the camera. Gimlin, a cowboy famous through the Yakima Valley for taming wild colts and running in breakneck “suicide races” (in which riders careen down steep slopes), dropped the packhorse’s rope and gripped the reins of his frightened pony to steady it.

Patterson scrambled across the uneven ground, waving the camera in one hand, the film blurry as he ran. He stopped to crouch and steady himself, then trained the lens on the strange figure, the camera shaking from his breathing. “Bob! Cover me!” he yelled over his shoulder to Gimlin, who rode toward the creek, dismounting his pony and drawing his rifle.

The picture steadied as the creature, mid-stride, turned to look over its right shoulder—just a glance—before it disappeared into the forest. A skunky, rank odor hung heavy in the air. The whole affair was over in less than a minute.

The final 59.5-second film, which the men would airmail back home to be developed, would soon become the world-famous Patterson-Gimlin film—arguably one of the most scrutinized pieces of video footage ever made. It is the cryptozoological equivalent to the Kennedy assassination’s Zapruder film. The film met immediate criticisms accusing Patterson and Gimlin of being master pranksters who simply filmed a man in an ape suit and laid fake footprints in the mud.

The film tore Patterson’s and Gimlin’s friendship apart. Patterson partnered with his brother-in-law, Al DeAtley, to take the film on a national tour as a way to raise funds for a full-fledged expedition back at Bluff Creek. The three took equal shares in the film, but soon Gimlin felt edged out, and sold his share of the rights for less than $10 to another Bigfoot researcher.

After five years estranged, Patterson and Gimlin made amends in 1972 as Patterson lay on his deathbed, dying of cancer at age 38. Patterson apologized for ousting Gimlin, pleading with him that when he recovered that they would go back to California and catch Bigfoot. He died the next day.

More than 40 years later, the film has never been conclusively debunked. It has withstood scrutiny from scientists, forensic analysts, Hollywood special effects experts, and costume designers. No one can quite explain it—except those who believe in folklore. In that time, Bigfoot has evolved into a full-fledged American myth, propagated by a national congregation of believers who regard Gimlin as a kind of prophet.

“Meeting Bob Gimlin, to a Bigfooter, is like meeting the President of the United States to an American,” says Cindy Rose Caddell, a researcher and author. “Or what meeting the Pope is to a Catholic.”

 


 

The 84-year-old cowboy wore a black cattleman’s hat and sunglasses, an off-white coat with “Bob” embroidered in blue thread at the chest. His boots stated their intentions across the tile entryway of a roadside diner in Union Gap, in central Washington, pausing as he held the door for an elderly woman in a pink jacket.

“Come on in, young lady,” he said, his baritone voice all campfire smoke and truck engines. Bob Gimlin wears big hats and big belt buckles and drives a big pickup. He talks slow with a heavy drawl and seems to find a way to turn almost any conversation toward horses.

In a booth with vinyl seats, Gimlin ordered coffee and dumped in two creams, and told the waitress he wouldn’t be eating. For the next six hours, he told his story: who he was before he saw Bigfoot, who he became after, and why he stayed quiet for four decades after the film’s debut.

“Meeting Bob Gimlin, to a Bigfooter, is like meeting the President of the United States to an American. Or what meeting the Pope is to a Catholic.”

Before he had ever heard of Bigfoot, Gimlin had led the life of a man who feared nothing, who thrived on dares and several times cheated death. The first time was at age seven when his appendix burst. He missed a year of school as he recovered in the Ozark mountains cabin in Missouri where he was born.

In 1940, the promise of sprawling green ranchlands and orchards set against the towering Cascades pulled his farmer father and part-Apache mother westward. In Washington, Gimlin roped wild horses with native boys on the nearby Yakima Reservation, crawling onto their backs and hanging on for dear life. “I was ready to ride,” he says. “Even at a very young age I wanted to ride anything that bucked, jumped, moved, run, or whatever.” He became a natural rodeo man: quick to bounce back, never letting a cast or a sling keep him from a horse. He raced caravans and chariots through mountain passes, hurtled down cliffsides. He gained a reputation as a daredevil (though he declined Evel Knievel’s offer to join him in for-profit “daredevilin’”).

At age 18, Gimlin joined the Army reserves; later he enlisted in the Navy. After two tours in the Korean War, he and three other sailors were in a car accident that left one dead when the driver smashed into a power pole. His head slammed into the dash and the motor of the car pinned his body in the vehicle. “I lost half my face,” he says. Gimlin underwent several plastic surgeries to repair his nose. He spent two years recovering in a hospital in California. Once he received his discharge papers, Gimlin headed back home to Yakima.

Life, for Gimlin, continued on a normal course: he married, had children, divorced, then married “the sassiest thing I’d ever met”—his wife of 52 years, Judy. In 1967, Gimlin, then 35, was scraping together a living driving trucks, roofing, and riding and taming horses. There was nothing significant about the day he pulled into a Union Gap service station and ran into his old rodeo pal, Roger Patterson.

Patterson was recovering from a bout with cancer. As they spoke, Patterson told Gimlin of his interest in supposed Bigfoot sightings. “He said, ‘Let me show you something,’” Gimlin recalls. “He went over to the truck and brought out a plaster cast of a big foot.” Patterson asked Gimlin if he would be interested in searching Mount St. Helens on horseback with him for evidence of a Bigfoot. “I said, ‘Roger, I just don’t have time.’”

By the late 1960s, Bigfoot had been tromping through Northwestern lore for hundreds of years. Several Native American tribes tell of looming, furry beasts reeking of scorched hair who stole trout from fishermen. In the early 20th century, newspaper articles reporting sightings read like spooky stories to tell around a campfire. In one such report, from 1924, a clan of rock-throwing ape-men ambushed a group of miners on Mt. St. Helens. The place is now called Ape Canyon. (Skeptics said the beasts were just YMCA campers playing a prank.) Ivan Sanderson’s 1961 book, Abominable Snowmen: Legend Come to Life, read like the stuff of a B movie.

But there were few opportunities for Patterson to commune with other believers. So he talked to Gimlin: the men formed a bond, riding horses through Washington’s backcountry. Patterson continued to regale Gimlin with Bigfoot lore, playing him recorded testimonies of real-life encounters and lending him books on the topic, despite Gimlin’s insistence that he did not care. (Patterson self-published a book in 1966, titled Do Abominable Snowmen of America Really Exist?)

Then, in August 1967, Patterson told Gimlin about a logging road construction crew spotting tracks and having their equipment inexplicably disassembled deep in the Six Rivers National Forest. He begged Gimlin to drive the two men and their horses to Northern California to search. Gimlin was skeptical that anything existed, but he was intrigued, and he wasn’t the sort of man to turn away from a good adventure. “I wanted to see these footprints that these people talked about,” he says.

The film the men produced gave the murky myth shape: suddenly, Bigfoot was manifested in flesh and blood. It had a loping gait and, with the twist of its torso, it looked over its shoulder before disappearing again into the wilderness. It even had a name: Patty.

Patty, arguably, created the Bigfoot industry. Today, the apelike figure—frozen in its signature turn—adorns car air fresheners and infant onesies that read, “Believe.” It looks back from coffee cups, Christmas ornaments, guitar picks, and Band Aids. There’s a Patty-shaped Chia Pet. Bigfoot even has a home on reality TV: Animal Planet launched Finding Bigfoot in 2011, starring Washington’s Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO). BFRO members lead guided backwoods expeditions—with a price tag of up to $500—throughout the U.S. where participants scour the forests for a look at the fabled beast.

But looking back on the trip today, Gimlin wishes he’d said no. That he’d turned away from Patterson that day at the service station and never looked back.

That trip to California changed him.

“It ruined me.”

 


 

By 1972, Patterson had died. Gimlin alone faced the scourge of detractors that were emerging around the country—some even confronted he and his wife in their hometown. Yakima was the place where Gimlin had become known for his fearlessness and strength, and suddenly he was a seen as crazy. His word, his handshake—currency around this part of the state—was in doubt.

“My wife was a teller at a savings and loan institution. Of course, she was sitting right there and the public would come in and make smart remarks,” Gimlin says. “This went on and on and on until she come home crying. She’d say, ‘I’m not tough enough.’ A couple times we were going to split up over this.”

Some nights, cars would screech by the Gimlins’ house. “They’d come driving in my driveway all times of the night and go ‘Bob! We want to go out Bigfoot hunting!’” he says. They’d speed away before he could run outside.

The couple felt isolated, and Gimlin found himself for the first time in the predicament that came to define his life for decades: if he acknowledged that he saw Bigfoot, he was the town loon; if he stayed quiet, people assumed he was lying.

“I can understand why they don’t believe in it—because I didn’t believe it either,” Gimlin recalls telling John Green, a prominent Canadian Bigfoot researcher, on a phone call during this period. “But I saw one. And I know what I saw. And I know it wasn’t a man in a suit. It couldn’t have been!”

In 1968, the year after Patterson and Gimlin returned, the Gimlins swore to never speak of Bigfoot again. But the video was out, and Gimlin was—and remains—stuck to the center of the debate, anchored like the sun in a growing solar system with believers and skeptics orbiting around him.

Reports of sightings filtered in from all over the Northwest. Bigfoot was traipsing through lush coastal woods and rocky mountainsides in Oregon. Its glowing red eyes peered from the understory in Olympic National Forest in Washington. It stalked the Dark Divide, the massive roadless area between Mount St. Helens and Mount Adams. It ran across a road near Vancouver. It left footprints in the snow outside Walla Walla.

I consider Bob Gimlin a liar. I think he’s a con artist.

Believers cropped up in Texas and Ohio, then as far afield as New York, Georgia, and Florida. In the past 40 years, people have produced supposed Bigfoot hairs, DNA tests, footprints, and piles of scat—not to mention the countless photographs and video clips (most of which have turned out to be hoaxes)—as scientific evidence of the creature’s existence. To many, the notion of “belief” is irrelevant among the myriad stories, sightings, and artifacts.

“No, I don’t believe in Bigfoot,” says Jeff Meldrum, an anthropology and anatomy professor at Idaho State University who is one of the foremost experts on foot morphology in the world. He was 11 years old in 1968 when he watched Patterson-Gimlin’s Bigfoot walk across the screen at the Spokane Coliseum in Eastern Washington. Today, he’s the keeper of the largest archive of Bigfoot footprint casts and author of the book Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science. “Belief usually connotes a position of faith, a conviction held in the absence of evidence,” Meldrum says. “I, for one, am convinced by the evidence I have studied at length.”

Cynics, however, don’t just question the “evidence,” they question Patterson’s and Gimlin’s credibility. In 2004, Greg Long, author of one of the most oft-cited pieces of skepticism about the Patterson-Gimlin Film—a book called The Making of Bigfoot—taunted Gimlin from the final pages of his book: “Will he ever confess?” Long wrote.

“I’m going to be blunt with you,” Long said recently over the phone. “I consider Bob Gimlin a liar. I think he’s a con artist.”

But Long’s arguments seem just as flimsy as believers’ proof. His book is filled with circumstantial evidence: a costume maker named Philip Morris in the early 2000s said he sold Patterson the suit but couldn’t provide any evidence of the sale; a Yakima man named Bob Hieronimus said he was the one that wore it. Neither claim is backed by concrete proof.

“‘They can’t exist, therefore they don’t exist,’” is the message Meldrum has received from skeptics, he says. “That was the actual retort hurled at me by an anthropology colleague.”

With Bigfoot having grown into an industry, Long says there’s no reason to believe anyone invested in the debate is telling the truth. “They need it to be real,” he says. The people who truly believe and search, he adds, “are driven emotionally, I believe, to find Bigfoot.”

 


 

In the face of skepticism and mockery, a large community of believers views Gimlin as the original seer: the man who witnessed the unthinkable, who lived to tell the tale, and who has been harassed for what he swore was real. These people congregate at Bigfoot conventions around the world to swap stories, trade evidence-gathering techniques and commune with kinfolk. Together they can be “out” about their beliefs.

Gimlin first appeared at a convention in California in 2003. Through his years of silence, Gimlin maintained contact with several prominent Bigfoot aficionados, including Swiss researcher Rene Dahinden and a Russian author named Dmitri Bayonov. After years of urging Gimlin to come to Russia to speak about the film, Bayonov arranged to come to America. With Green’s help, the pair convinced Gimlin to attend the Willow Creek International Bigfoot Symposium: an event that promised to bring all the biggest scientific names into one room (including Jane Goodall, a primatologist and Bigfoot believer, who canceled her appearance last minute) in the very same area where Patterson and Gimlin made their film decades before.

To Gimlin, walking into the conference was like entering a church. “It’s not a fairy tale to them. It’s serious business,” he says. “When I met those people down there, they accepted me with what you call open arms.”

There, Gimlin spoke of Bigfoot for the first time in years. “There wasn’t a sound in the room while I was talking,” he says. “I thought, ‘I can’t really believe this. This is almost like seeing Bigfoot.’ God, I felt like I was 10 feet tall.”

When he finished, the room rose to its feet.

“They just stood up and applauded and applauded,” Gimlin says. “I thought, ‘Why have I gone 35 years through a bunch of ridicule?’”

Gimlin appears at conventions across the country. He signs shirts and plaster foot casts, tells and retells the story of he and Patterson’s encounter. He is no stranger to standing ovations.

“They want to talk to me, they want to tell me about their experience,” he says. “This turned my whole life around.”

 


 

At home in Central Washington, however, Gimlin is no celebrity. When I visited him this past spring, we took a drive through Wapato, just south of Yakima, to see the house where he grew up, only to find a field of weeds where it once stood. His high school is gone, too. Panaderias and taquerias dot the streets he once knew. As he idled on one street, people on the sidewalk turned to look at the cowboy in his truck, staring at him as if he’d just dropped in from outer space.

Gimlin’s days are typical retired-rancher stuff: he wakes at 5 a.m. every morning on his modest 1,500-square-foot home that sits on two acres in town. He leases land around the Yakima area where he grazes his seven horses. He mows his pastures on a riding mower and tends to his garden of cucumbers and tomatoes. At night he watches UFC fights. He’s a member of several local equestrian clubs.

Three days a week, Gimlin drives his black pickup—one with a Bigfoot sticker in a tinted back window and Bigfoot air freshener tucked into a cup holder—into town for physical therapy. In the 1990s, Gimlin was bucked off a horse and told by a doctor he’d never ride again. “I proved I could do it,” he says. But then, in the early 2000s, he went sailing off another horse. He had his bicep removed from his left arm and nearly lost all ability to use it. He lifts light dumbbells now, an attempt to regain some feeling.

Every couple of months, he travels to address another congregation of the faithful. People of every age and shape packed inside a Portland beerhall on a Friday night this past January to see Gimlin speak. He told the story he’s told a hundred times before, from the beginning: bumping into Patterson at the service station; the bright fall leaves; the creature glancing over its shoulder; the conversation at Patterson’s bedside hours before he died.

Afterwards, Gimlin stuck around to take pictures and sign autographs. A boy in a red plaid shirt and a cowboy hat holding a 16mm Cine Kodak camera—like the one used to shoot the Patterson-Gimlin film—and a plaster footprint cast approached him for a photo.

A few months later, while doing research for this article, I absentmindedly search “#pattersongimlin” on Instagram. A familiar face pops up on my screen. It’s that boy in the cowboy hat from January who got a photo with his hero, Bob Gimlin.

OutsideOnline-3

The boy’s account is practically devoted to Bigfoot. There are photos from the Portland event, old pictures of Roger Patterson, shots of book covers adorned with furry beasts and more of giant foot casts on his bedroom carpet.

It’s just one small example of Gimlin’s outsized impact on American lore. The Internet has exposed people to the Patterson’s and Gimlin’s journey in ways unimaginable to Gimlin, and continues to enchant new generations of believers. Whether or not any of the stories are true, Bigfoot is alive and well. In large part, that’s because Gimlin, the non-believer, an unlikely champion of the myth, helped catch a glimpse of it on film.

In one post, the boy splits the frame in thirds, filling each with photos of Roger Patterson’s gravestone. “We never forget he was our Bigfoot hunter,” he writes. A portion of another caption reads: “I met Bob Gimlin…it was a best day ever #bobgimlin.”

BobGimlin85-2

We would like to wish Bob Gimlin a very happy 85th birthday! He recently attended the Ohio Bigfoot Conference where he spoke about his experiences and of course, his famous film. We hope Bob lives many more healthy years…once a Squatcher, always a Squatcher!

BobGimlin85-1

In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake.

This is an improved and stabilised version of the original footage of Patty the Bigfoot, you can see her very clearly in the video. Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage.

    There is an area near Lumbini, Nepal, they have sightings of Yeti for hundreds of years. So they have signages in the area with Yeti artwork to highlight this. Interesting. TR

    To H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, honorable Kechara Sangha, and all friends. If you are intrigued by Bigfoot, especially the Patterson- Gimli footage please watch M.K. Davis’s YouTube videos on the subject. This man has done genius things to prove the validity of the film. I am leaving a link to one of his “better” videos but all of them are really great and interesting. Thank you so much, Rinpoche la for all you do. Muc

    This is the “Holy Grail” of Bigfoot film. If you search “Patterson Film, Stabilized, Slow, and Cleaned Up” you can see this video in a whole new way that will blow your mind and you will see there is no way this was faked. I got goosebumps as I had never seen the video cleaned up and stabilized so just seeing the face of the creature you immediately realize there is no way that it is a mask or costume. Cool stuff! Thank you for the awesome article and story. I truly enjoy all of the things you post, Rinpoche. I wish I could join your Sangha as you are the only lama/rinpoche whose teachings sink in directly for me without effort. I find your teaching style really clicks with me and I feel such a connection. Thank you so much for all of you video teachings and for all that you do. 🙏

      Hi Spencer, thank you for your lovely comment. Rinpoche was very happy to read it, and humbled to know that the videos and material on this blog have benefited you. Do keep watching and leave a comment from time to time, especially if you ever have any questions. And thank you for pointing us in the direction of that Bigfoot video. A few of us watched it and suffice to say, we were shocked by the fantastic quality 🙂 🙂

      • Spencer Boyle on Mar 9, 2018 at 9:30 pm

        Oh, wow! Thank you Pastor Khong for your kind reply. I have benefited from your videos as well. I really love Kechara House and will try to support when I can. I very much enjoy all of Kechara House videos, secular and sacred. I feel like you all are my family, it’s really nice so thank you all so very much for helping me to enrich my life and more importantly, benefit others. I just love H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche so very much! He is so special and inspiring, so worthy of his Rinpoche (precious one) title. My heart felt thanks and gratitude to Rinpoche la and all of you for sharing the teachings with people like me. Thank you! I am looking to buy a mala from your store because I am really enthusiastic about chanting mantras. I am really feeling connection to reciting mantra. I will continue to watch all of your videos and to follow Rinpoche’s blog and postings. Long life and health for H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche!!! <3

    Thank you for this article. It is impressive to read about the men who discovered and captured the infamous photo of Big Foot back in the 1960s. These insights lend weight to the credibility of this discovery. While skeptics often explain the sighting with the principle of Occam’s razor, I would like to argue that not everything that cannot be proven with our limited technology and knowledge means that they do not exist. Big Foot and many others unsolved mysteries are some of the examples. This huge furry creature is not new in the unsolved mystery scene, Big Foot could be the same as Yeti or related to it, who resides in the snowy mountains of the Himalayan. I really appreciate all these discoveries, and as long as they are not a hoax, I think they will prepare us to be more open-minded about the unknown who share this environment with us.

    I think Bob Gimlin was well respected of the his community. If he wanted not to be considered not a freak or crazy, he could have easily said I did not see it. Then all then everyone in his community would have treated them as before.

    But he chose to stand his ground, in conviction of what he saw. Looking at the Patterson film, there is no way in my mind, that the being filmed is a man in gorilla suit, it moves so naturally through the forest.

    Another clue would be horses, most horses sense of smell is much more acute to humans, to smell other animals that would could be hunting them.

  16. Lew on Jul 24, 2016 at 7:11 pm

    I think I am like many others, where my first encounter with bigfoot is because of this famous video by Patterson and Gimlin. I myself have watched it many times (and in slow motion) trying to find fault or evidence if the video is real or fake.

    But I never know that this video actually ended the friendship between Patterson and Gimlin. If this video is indeed a hoax, then it must be a damn good hoax because it has withstood so much scrutiny.

    But anyway, this is still one of the best video on bigfoot ever recorded. I wish there are more reputable bigfoot video. I used to watch this TV series called “Finding Bigfoot”, but after so many seasons and episodes, no bigfoot has ever been seen, and eventually I have stopped watching it.

    “洗浴便是我们清洁身体的方式。 但对于心灵,我们从没洗浴,也从没洗净心灵。 我们的日常生活充满了各种情绪各种事,会使我们会生气、妒忌,贪婪、存妄想,我们从没洗净自己的心灵。 唯一能洗净心灵的的做法就是打坐, 打坐是对心灵的洗净。

    在物质世界中,你一天没洗澡都没所谓,但如果是几天没洗澡,那你就会开始意识到问题的存在,且受其困扰。 要是你一周没洗澡,那其他人就会意识到这个问题,因为你身上会散发气味,所以这时候其他人也会受其困扰。 要是你没洗澡的时间再长一些,那麻烦可大了。“

    的确,在现实生活中,我们一天不洗澡就浑身不自在,除了身体觉得黏、脏和痒,身上也会逐渐发出臭味。过了两三天,不只是自己,别人也开始会察觉到。但是,对于心灵,我们却从来不给予相应的注意,试想象一个几十年从未洗涤过的心,会是一颗多么浑浊的心?也难怪社会问题如此严重,患上忧郁症等各种心理病的人日益增加。问题的根源就在于大家都不去洗涤和沉淀自己的内心,一个浮躁不安的人作茧自缚影响的是个人的心理健康,许多浮躁不安的人在一起,自然就产生摩擦,继而衍生社会问题。

    由此可见,佛教提倡静坐,即便不是为了觉悟和成佛,其背后的意义还是十分深远的。

    The journey to the heavens might be a spiritual one but it often materialises a physical aspect, too. It is perhaps this aspiration to reach the world above that inspired Myanmar‘s Taung Kalat Buddhist Temple.

    Devotees believe that Taung Kalat (which means Pedestal Hill), perched atop a volcanic vent, is home to four of the 37 Great Nats whose significance extends to all layers of Burmese culture and belief. In Burmese Buddhism, Nats are regarded as demigods or spirits who act as protectors of Buddhist practitioners. Some are guardians of the hills and forests. These deities inhabit the labyrinth of shrines, stupas and monasteries which sit tightly together just metres from the precipitous edge.

    Education plays a key role in the world and mankind’s progress. It allows us to learn from the past so we can shape a better future. Discoveries and advancements in fields such as Science, Mathematics, Medicine, Psychology, and Engineering have all been made possible because they were driven by education.

    However, many education systems developed in the past have remained stagnant while the world has changed, and continues to change at an unprecedented pace. These outdated systems fail to provide the necessary syllabi to meet the needs of our children today and the challenges they will meet in the future. With many schools offering educational structures and learning systems closely resembling those experienced by our parents and grandparents, modern children may not be as prepared as they should be for the world ahead. Modern education systems should take into account the changing landscape of mankind and of the world, which is now driven not only by automation and technology but also an increasing awareness of our impact on the environment, and our connectivity with each other and the earth.

    Each Dalai Lama is a unique individual, they have been philosophers, builders and even poets, and as each is revered as a Bodhisattva who possess great mystical powers and can incarnate life after life, every Dalai Lama has great potential to benefit many beings by disseminating Buddhism and safeguarding his fellow countrymen. This can be seen clearly as His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has been a charismatic global spiritual teacher whose teachings are timeless and translated into many languages.

    However, not all is well in paradise. When each incarnation is recognised, the successor will inherit the position, fame, and estates of his predecessor. As such, as highlighted in Mike Dash’s article featured in smithsonian.com, the selection of the Dalai Lamas is never a straightforward and purely religious process. You will read about the politics and power struggles surrounding the selection process, insights into the tragic loss as the lives of the Dalai Lamas were cut short due to political intrigue, and most of all, the key events that shaped Tibetan history.

    Good news, everyone. Another group of five Kecharians have completed their three-day, two-night Dorje Shugden Retreat at Kechara Forest Retreat. This is an annual retreat that is organised by Kechara Puja House and four out of the five retreatants joined the retreat for the first time. The retreat took place at Manjushri Guest House, which is a special place perched on a hilltop within the enchanting forest landscape of Kechara Forest Retreat.

    Have you been to watch a Chinese opera before? Did you notice the front-row seats are always left unoccupied? It is said that these seats are reserved for the unseen beings like the deities and spirits.

    For the Chinese opera performers, they worship a god called Wah Kong Sifu. Wah Kong Sifu is the highly respected guardian of the Cantonese opera. It is believed that only with his blessings can the show go on as swimmingly as planned. In spiritual performances of other cultures, similar sets of rituals can also be observed.

    马来西亚彭亨州文冬的暹猛路除了有个闻名的情人瀑布,还有一座 “有求必应”、香火鼎盛的金泽财王庙,是当地不可错过的旅游胜地。金泽财王庙位于克切拉禅修林(Kechara Forest Retreat)的入口处。供奉的是来自西藏的护法,专给人们财富、人缘、生意、长寿、健康等各方面的帮助,至今给不少人带来财运。这些人拜过金泽财王后,有些人在短时间内多次买字中奖,有些几十年不曾中奖的人也突然中了奖。总之,有什么需要都可以向金泽财王求助和求保佑。金泽财王庙每天开放24小时,方便各界人士前来上香、点灯、许愿、祈福。

    Inspiring story of Mahapajapati Gotami who initiated the tradition of female monastic. She was known to be the first woman to seek ordination for women. It was not easy for her to become the ordained women since it wasn’t practiced and the women were not in the equal position as men. She goes against the odds and was fortunate that she received ordination directly from the Buddha and became the first female bhikkhuni of our time. Story of Mahapajapati Gotami ,has proven that women gain attainment same as men.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring story.

    Interesting article on Uppalavanna first time coming across this , something to add to my knowledge. Uppalavanna was considered to be one of the two chief female disciples of the Buddha. The story on Uppalavanna is not only the longest in this collection, but also the most complicated and fantastical. Many ancient tales, twists and turns about her to date, being the daughter of a wealthy merchant.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    The White Old Man is a well known iconic figure symbolises wisdom, longevity and to some cultures, prosperity. Therefore it is not surprising to find the worshipping of a similar While Old Man amidst Russian and Mongolia local folklores. The incorporation of the White Old Man into Buddhism goes to show that there are many shared values in the two. Most importantly the White Old Man is a source of strength and blessing to those who prayed to him, as prescribed in his prayers and mantras. Thank you for the informative sharing.

    Thank you so much for this article. I feel that her entry in fashion world started when she could not find the perfect props and costumes, she was given the freedom to make them herself where the experience gave her the confidence to strike out on her own as a freelance stylist in 1967.

    And the happy thing is within two years, the clothes she made garnered enough attention for her to create her own label. At the same time, she reiterates that her creativity feeds from a wider perspective and has “nothing to do with politics or war”.

    Thank you so much for this article. In many article, I have came across the word ‘sadhana’, but i don’t have any idea what the word really means. Sadhana mainly helps us to achieve union with that particular Buddha-deity and that means taking on the enlightened qualities of that particular Buddha.

    Even though Rinpoche has become so exhausted where he is unable to recall whether he has done or not his sadhanas, he still makes up for it the following day. Thus, he has maintained his sadhana steadfastly, never wavering or giving up on his practice.

    The Sacred Vajrayogini of Ratsag Monastery

    Some oral accounts said that Ratsag monastery is a founded by Ra Lotsawa who introduced Yamantaka Tantra to Tibet. This monastery used to house a very special Vajrayogini statue which is the personal vajrayogini statue of Mahasiddha Naropa, the founder of Naro Kacho lineage. The statue is widely regarded as sacred not only because it is said to have self-arisen during Buddha Shakyamuni’s lifetime, but also because it has the power to “liberate through seeing” means that the statue is so powerful, it can change the course of the person’s results who is praying to it for a better outcome. The dakinis later offered the statue to the Mahasiddha Naropa and it became his principal object of worship.

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

Find one of the most beautiful temples in the world in Nara, Japan. It is the 1,267 year old Todai-ji temple that houses a 15 meter Buddha Vairocana statue who is a cosmic and timeless Buddha. Emperor Shomu who sponsored this beautiful temple eventually abdicated and ordained as a Buddhist monk. Very interesting history and story.

    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
