22nd Oct: Lama Kunzang Dorje Rinpoche addressed a new group of active animal welfare advocates and ‘Tsethar’ practitioners know informally as Druedro Rawang in the Jangsa office premises.

The ensuing discussions on a very auspicious day of national commemorations was very open-ended, spontaneous, free-flowing and resulted in many fruitful outcomes: Lama Rinpoche instructed the Khenpos, anims and lopons on the vast view and larger objectives of ‘Tsethar’ beyond just saving animals; of the preeminence of uniting compassion with wisdom – without which animals may suffer more in the long run at the hands of unscrupulous people who abuse compassion of active Tsethar groups; on the various aspects of animal welfare such as maintenance and accountability of animals in the period post-Tsethar; and other crucial areas such as advocacy and mass education, sustainability issues, and of collaboration and facilitation of all stakeholders involved in the issue of animal welfare, for the benefit of all sentient beings.
