Karma of Castrating Animals

Some teachings on karma… you may not like it, but to me, it’s true.

Karma that causes families to break-up  ~  Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche

In this life, those whose families were broken up, it is definite that you have broke up other people’s families before. In this regard, ‘family’ does not only mean human families and it does not only refer to being a third party. But when you eat meat, you also eat the children or parents of other animals and cause the separation between them and their partners. It also includes castration of animals. This kind of negative karma is very heavy

Karmic repercussions of castrating animals  ~  Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche

Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche once helped a doctor suffering from liver cancer. This man’s stomach was very distended and though a doctor himself, he was helpless about his own sickness, therefore came to seek Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s help. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche examined the karmic causes of his sickness and found that this man had castrated many animals in the past. But this doctor was not a vet, so how would he have castrated so many animals? It turned out that when this doctor was in Hainan Island as a military doctor, while he was free and feeling bored, decided to castrate the local chickens, dogs etc. and other animals. He felt that he was doing a good deed to the loitering cats and dogs and felt that it would be good not to let them continue to multiply. Even bringing one’s own pet to be castrated, it is not good and there will be negative karmic results. Just think, if you were to be healthy and fine, would you be willing to have someone castrating you casually? If you are not willing to be castrated, then don’t do such things.
