hi, ola, hola hi, ola, hola English Message-
Hi my friends
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY
NOTE: I don`t receive your new editions or your shares from many of you
It`s hard for me to go to your channels and watch your videos
in order for me to comment and rating thems.
I think most of your contacts are having the same problem,
that is why they are not commenting and rating your videos.
I recomend to all of you to send your videos to all your contacts
this way instead of the regular way.
YOUTUBE is having problems since the beggining of this month,
they have a new engineering system technology
they are changing everything in their web page.
Please dont ever think you’re invading your friends, sending your videos this way (friends dont get mad for this actions)
they will be happy that you are sending it your new editions (videos)
Also please
WATCH, COMMENT AND RATE IT your friends videos
and if you can, share it them with your contacts as regular share
You don’t loose anything doing that, most of this,you winning views and friendships also. Remember, if you comment and rating in your friends videos they’ll do the same on yours
I also recomend to DELETE all of the channels that are closed
this stops the shares from getting to your friends active channels.
JUST DO IT PLEASE
THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING

Have all of you a brilliant week full of blessings, peace, love, happiness and triumphs

P.S. Thank you, dear Friend  , for all useful informations. We mostly comment on our Friends  videos in a creative way. We believe that creativity is the proper way to show appreciation of other´s work. Not only writing : “Thank you for sharing…” but truly looking at the video , its message , reflecting on it and THEN writing the comment. We strongly encourage everyone to apply this method .

Answer : Dear Timmy , we appreacite your work and awareness about suffering of animals on this planet Earth. One can join social networks   http://www.protectanimalsandnature .ning.com and www.mothersnaturecottage.ning.com. One can sign petitions at Care2web.

Chatral Rinpoche (Nepal) strongyl encourage releasing of captured fishes, which would otherwise be murdered for meat !  One can teach about the vegetarian diet through internet , esp. through youtube. Get connected with millions of people who are doing their best to SAVE THE PLANET by going VEG and going GREEN ***** OM MANI PADME HUM

4.3. Questions and answers

nutier France

Dear venerable Sir , thank you so much for your kind response on my questions ( Q.105, Q.106 ) . It’s really important for Buddhists to understand what the samsara is . Samsara is great as an universe which drags somethings around it everytime without stopping .
Please enjoy my question , thank you .
One who killed an animal , after death , will go into hell , according to Buddhism .
Q.108 – In this world , there are a lot of animals , birds , fishs , insects etc. who killed themselves for life ; when they die , will they go directly into hell ?
May peace and happiness be upon you always ! nutier

Answer : Animal realm is beginning of lower part of samsara where suffering is greater . Animal realm is especially based on ignorance or unawareness. Animals experience  a lot of fear. Fear of being killed by other stronger animals , fear for being killed by humans for food ! Yes, their meat is murder. Animals also transmigrate in samsara. The beasts commit a lot of murder, but also birds kill a lot of insects, big fishes eat small fishes. People who eat a lot of meat have a lot of animal characteristics . Genetics could tell a lot about this. One who kills animal will be reborn 500 or more times as  animal, experiencing  the same suffering and fear. But even this truth don´t stop people from eating meat ! This shows how deeply embeded is cruelty and aggression in those who eat meat.

Buddhas teaching or Buddha Dharma is not kind of fatalistic tradition. It is wisdom and compassion. The study and practice of Buddha Dharma does not make us close-minded religionists, but truly wise and compassionate beings. First step on that spiritual path is the stop eating meat and saving lives of sentient beings.

Gilbert, Buddhas teachings are also very contemporary. Buddhas teaching manifest from stainless Dharmakaya, to benefit beings limitless as the sky. The aim of study & practice of Buddha Dharma is to become wise, compassionate being who understand himself , who understands causes , conditions and effects (=virtuous or unvirtuous karma, as we explained in previous answers). No 108 is auspicious in Buddhism . May you be blessed with true understanding , wisdom and compassion .
