Vegetarianism – Diet Love

For a start, let us understand one thing – Vegetarian is not just a lifestyle choice or a conscious choice, it is a healthy conscientious choice.

It is a diet of loving kindness because we are kinder to ourselves by eating better and healthier. In addition, we are kinder to animals and they need not suffer in order to feed us.

There are plenty of health benefits that comes with the virtue of being vegetarian. Not only does vegetarianism meets all one’s nutrient needs, it promotes less health risks that come with eating meat. Well-known doctors in the USA such as Dean Ornish and John MacDougall have discovered that plant-based diets have the power to reverse heart disease, diabetes, even cancer. So, this is about treating yourself with real loving kindness, and being well informed about the choices you make in what you eat. Continue reading…

Type meat that we have to avoid

Usually when we talk about the consequences of eating meat, the focus is usually placed upon the suffering of the animals that are slaughtered simply for the benefit of our dinner plates.

However, even from a selfish point of view, eating meat is potentially a very dangerous dietary habit…

Most people who buy meat give no thought to where it has come from or what the meat actually contains. For example, we may think that steak has simply come straight from a cow and into packaging… ready to be shelved at the Supermarket. Continue reading…

The Responsibility Of The Criminal

When my Mumu was small and being trained, I would come back to the Kitchen area EVERY SINGLE DAY AND IT WOULD LOOK LIKE THIS. He was hyper, tore up everything and pooped everywhere. I was paranoid to come home into the the kitchen area as I knew what was waiting for meÖ. Sometimes I would have to go out twice and when I get home, I would have to clean the kitchen again. It was like this for months. I even considered a few times to give Mumu away as it was just too much cleaning daily with no end in sight it seemed… .

I got a book, then I sat down and read and learned now to train Mumu and IT MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. I realized what I was doing wrong to potty train him. Yes Mumu was hyper, but I was making the mistakes in training him. It was me. I was at fault. Continue reading…

Please respect animals

Animals must be respected by us. All Buddhists or ppl with a conscience should abandon eating of meat.

Animals have many complex feelings and fears just like us. They deserve to be happy and left in peace.
I love animals so much.

Believing in the infallible doctrine of karma will be a big boost to stop the harming of animals.

To jill carroll is also with love

Kepada Jill Carrol dengan kasih…

Dear Ooi Beng Kooi,

I saw your name as a contact person for Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and his center. I am an American who believes in Buddhism. Two things that mean a lot to me are Buddhism and animals and when I did a search on the internet on both Buddhism and animals I found Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. I have watched several videos on You Tube and I am very thankful for the teachings. I watched one video about being happy and have learned a lot. I now just apologized to my sisters in which we are arguing. I would like to thank Tsem Tulku Rinpoche for his kind teachings that he shares on the internet. This is a blessing. Continue reading…

Truths about meat

Kebenaran mengenai daging

When we think of Global Warming, our thoughts might turn to emissions produced by cars and other vehicles, factory plants, how we use our gas and electric supplies at home, even right down to the small things like how many times we boil a kettle in a day. Continue reading…

Dogs are cute, intelligent and can be trained to utilize their skills to the fullest potential. Many people keep dogs for the great companions that they are. Children love them, senior citizens enjoy their company, the blind and disabled can be aided by them. In most countries, the police force recognize them as one of their own. A dog’s sensitive nose is perfect for search and rescue missions, as well as tracking down drugs and runaway criminals. Continue reading…

Chickens are capable of feeling empathy

Chickens are the most mistreated animals in the meat industry. Most chickens in the commercial farm have a life span of 6 weeks before being sent for slaughter, and their living conditions would be considered unacceptable for any being. If left in the wild, chickens can live for 5 to 10 years (depending on the breed).

The article below was shared on Facebook by my student and liaison, Sharon Saw.

It is great that the sufferings of these animals can be proven scientifically, allowing more people to realize that animals too have feelings… just like us. Hopefully, with findings such as this, cruelty towards animals will no longer be taken lightly.

Chickens are capable of feeling empathy, scientists believe

Domestic chickens display signs of empathy, the ability to “feel another’s pain” that is at the heart of compassion, a study has found. The discovery has important implications for the welfare of farm and laboratory animals, say researchers. Continue reading…

Do a vegetarian smarter ??

Those who wish to not be involved in animal cruelties and who are vegetarians/vegans show greater empathy towards animal suffering. But if we think about it, it’s quite simple… if you saw someone crying from being bullied and you empathized with that person – you yourself wouldn’t become a bully. The same applies with animals. If you saw them crying just before getting slaughtered – you yourself wouldn’t be a meat eater.

When we feel a certain way, it may be possible that our brain functions in the corresponding way as well. For example, when we feel anger, certain parts of our brain are activated, and when we read the text that we’re reading now, another part of our brain is activated. But what about feeling empathy?

Studies have shown that the degree of empathy we feel towards animals and humans can be measured on a neurological level.

The main findings were:

  1. Compared to omnivores, vegetarians and vegans showed “higher activation of empathy related brain areas (e.g. Anterior Cingular Cortex and left Inferior Frontal Gyrus)” when they observed scenes of BOTH animal and human suffering.
  2. There are certain brain areas which only vegetarians and vegans seem to activate when they view pictures of suffering, particularly human suffering. Additional areas in the brain were particularly active when viewing photos of mutilation.
