Mission

The Greatest Compassionate One - The
Buddha - taught that saving the lives of all beings is the most
beneficial action of all relative good actions. According to Mahayana
Buddhism, all sentient beings were at one time our parents. This belief
is based on and linked to the cycle of births and rebirths in this
Samsaric world. Therein lies the basis to treat all beings with
compassion and sympathy. This is the basis of “Tsethar” which is the
Buddhist act of saving and preserving animal lives.

The
Jangsa Animal Saving Trust was established as a non-profit charitable
trust to cover the expenses relating to the establishment and
maintenance of the Buddhist practice of Tsethar. This trust was
established after a personal experience where Lama Kunzang Dorjee came
into contact with five bulls who had come to seek refuge in the
monastery where he lived. After escaping the slaughterhouse, these
bulls came directly to Lama Kunzang Dorjee's monastery to seek refuge
and refused to leave.

His
Holiness Trulku Jigme Choeda, the Je Khenpo of Bhutan and H.H. Kyabje
Chatral Rinpoche have kindly supported these endeavors. We hope that
all people will be inspired to join and support the noble cause of
Tsethar- to save the lives of innocent animals.

Presently,
the trust maintains about 600 bulls, 40 yaks, 137 pigs, 23 sheep, 2
goats and 9 ducks in the eastern and northern regions of the Kingdom of
Bhutan. There are also 10 goats, 2 buffaloes and 2 pigs cared for in a
village near Kalimpong in the hills of West Bengal, India. A further 58
bulls have found a home in Siliguri, India. Finally, at the monastery
in Kalimpong, 4 bulls and a cow have also found refuge from being
slaughtered.
