Tibetan Volunteers for Animals

Originally uploaded by dalbhat.
Friends who recently visited Dharmsala for an extended period of time brought me back this t-shirt dedicated to animal's rights and the 70th birth celebration of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

It is by a group called Tibetan VOlunteers for Animals ( and the saying on the shirt in Tibetan was translated like this,

"While we torture animals by eating meat still we are praying with our prayer wheels. This is not real Dharma, this is the style of artificial Buddha." Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok

We always need to keep striving for our ideals and values -- to be more truthful to ourselves.
