lamas and animals

Yes this also moved me, because of its sincerity. We need more teachers like that in the world.

Here is a picture of Geshe Sonam with a motherless baby hare we rescued. He grew up in an animal shelter and now lives in a large enclosure with plenty of grass to nibble and a blue sky overhead. (Maybe we should start a teachers and animals photo thread)

In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.

Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa, of the Do Ngak Kunphen Ling Center in CT, and the Archbishop of the National Cathedral at the Washington DC Animal League in 2007. Rinpoche was in town when the Dalai Lama received the Congressional Medal; he supervised the chanting at the Cathedral.

The white puppy had been hit by a car and had rods/staples in both front legs - Rinpoche blessed him.

Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats

I've seen that one with the deer before; amazing photo! Apparently it is Kyabje Choeje Ayang Rinpoche.

Here's one of Lama Kunzang Dorjee with a goat his Jangsa Animal Saving Trust saved from the butchers. Lama Kunzang Dorjee is a student of HH Chatral Rinpoche and also encourages saving life (tsethar) and not eating meat. You can donate to support his projects on his website.
