Dear JP,

It is amazing. You are a NATURAL interior/exterior designer. Your sense of depths, color, texture, ambience, art and it all matches a person’s personality whom you are designing for. Your focus is deep and consistent. So rare to find this type of designer who can combine all these ingredients in.

If you did this for a living, you would win accolades and awards.

Also the biggest key, is YOU CARE ENOUGH to do such a good job.

I am amazed by this latest design by you and totally admire your works in this.

I am glad I just followed your suggestions in everything in this latest masterpiece. I was resistant to some of the ideas and I am glad I let you have your ways with your ideas.

Thank you for caring and creating a interior award winning design in the middle of the *Bentong Jungle!!

Much appreciation and love,

Tsem Rinpoche

P.S. Your design of this room is so beautiful I love everything in it even the green **KELUAR SIGNAGE at the door!!! LOL

 

Sitting area

 

Beautiful Lord Tsongkhapa art on the walls. There are 15 which represents the biography of Tsongkapa’s sacred life, accomplishments and deeds. The art work was color adjusted by our talented in house artist Cynthia Lee. Colors all suggested by Jp and approved by him also. Jp did magnificent color adjustments for Manjushri behind my seat.

 

The view of the audience room. How aesthetically beautiful…

 

JP put in so much care and attention into the finer details. Care is the key for success combined with consistency.

 

View of the audience room entrance which leads into the Wisdom Hall.

 

A close up of Lama Tsongkhapa’s print.

 

The throne in the audience room. You would never know on the left panel is a door leading to a bathroom and kitchen.

 

I love the colour scheme!

 

 

 

*Bentong is where Kechara Forest Retreat is located. It’s a one hour pleasant drive from capital city of Kuala Lumpur.
**“Keluar: is Malaysian for “Exit”.

 

Background:

Kechara Forest Retreat is our premises in the greens and hills of Malaysia. We have a centre in the city and now in the rural area so people can be close to nature. Within Kechara Forest Retreat we have various facilities. The place for prayers and meditation is called Wisdom Hall. Within Wisdom Hall is the audience room where I meet people. The beautiful pictures you see above is the completed audience room for myself to meet international guests just completed by JP today.

JP is a close assistant, friend and sponsor of mine/Kechara. He is a warm, intelligent, straightforward person who has done so much to contribute towards the growth of Kechara for years. He is deeply loved and appreciated by myself as well as many. We are fortunate to have many people who contribute so much because of their dedication towards Dharma in our beautiful Kechara. Jp also is very good in designs for interiors/exteriors. He has no formal training, but the talent comes from within. He did the audience room completely over and produced what you see in the pictures above. I am amazed at his talents, dedication and aesthetics.

Thank you, JP!

If you notice in the pictures, the color schemes, designs, wallpaper, furniture are all chosen by him. He spent three weeks doing this as well as overseeing the contractors combined with his many other duties. Behind the panels he artistically hid the unsightly doors to exit/bathroom that had no choice but to be there. Also the framed pictures of Manjushri and Lord Tsongkapa which is a visual delight he suggested and approved the colors for it to be adjusted to match the room. You can see how beautiful these hangings are. Everything including the color of the lighting was redone by JP. Wow is not enough. I had to share this with everyone!

 

 JP

 

JP’s does so many portfolios besides construction, design and building within Kechara. He also manages the running of Tsem Ladrang my private household, fundraising, part of Board of Directors, human resources and PR. Yes, a Dharma student who is a gem of a friend also. If you are friends with JP, you have a kind and constant ally on your side.

    Beautiful,stunning and cosy designed room.thats what i descibed it.Well i do not Jp personnally but i heard his voice and his short speech at KFR recently i can said he is such a soft spoken man with a powerful voice,straightforward and responsible personality.
    Well done…its nice to see what was before and now a amazing and beautiful place.The color of the room, designs and wallpaper stood up beautifully and matching indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all the beautiful pictures.

  2. Stella Cheang on Jun 4, 2017 at 9:51 pm

    Wow, the transformation of the audience room is stunning. Congrats to JP Thong for doing a wonderful job, now the audience room is very warm and inviting. I am sure guests and visitors who have the good fortune to be invited into the audience room will be welcomed by the cosy and homey ambiance.

  3. Vivian Ong on Mar 19, 2017 at 1:41 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article about JP. I didn’t know him in person previously until recently. He is indeed a kind & soft-spoken person.I am also amazed with the designed he did for the audience room. It is just so comfortable to look at. It is simple yet elegantly decorated. Thank you JP for the wonderful work.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful and more beautiful! The previous picture looked a bit clinical and uninviting ( the white walls and the fairly large sofas along the walls) but the after picture is lovely. The colors are warm, earthy and inviting. Nicely created central piece which is Rinpoche’s throne and the stunning manjushri. The cherry on the cake has to be the thangkas which are so diligently done, exquisite and very meaningful of course. Splendid job JP and Cynthia.

  5. Edward Ooi on Apr 6, 2014 at 7:42 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I didn’t know that JP have such wonderful talent in designing. The room used to be quite crowded but now thanks to JP’s awesome designing talent the audience room is so neat and beautiful. I love the whole KFR. It is because the entire KFR is full with greens, it’s refreshing and we also are able to play with the doggies in KFR. And to me, it is very relaxing place free from stress. I can’t wait to visit KFR again.

  6. Lucas Roth on Nov 2, 2013 at 10:24 pm

    i love it, it looks great and uncle JP is so nice to make it better. i love the design and i hope the people there can use the room well.thank you Rinpoche for sharing

    Oh My God!! This is a very so beautiful transformation. Thank you JP Thong for making things so ever beautiful. Kechara has always has this good and trendy style of interior. Love it !! I can’t imagine how many sleepless night and meeting after meeting or changing of plan after plan to make these beautiful rooms and not to mention KFR!! I should learn from you. Hehe…

  9. Adrian lee on Oct 4, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    It’s ambience is soothing, peaceful n tranquil.. The mind automatically calms down upon seeing this room.. Namaste to JP…

  10. Andrew James Boon on Sep 18, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    JP has and incredible keen eye for detail and a knack for spotting imperfections. This coupled with his strong devotion and faith towards Rinpoche makes a powerful combination which makes him strive to always give his 101%

    I am very fortunate to call him my Dharma brother and his exemplary actions are indeed very humbling!

    Kudos to JP and his beautiful skill!

  11. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 17, 2013 at 8:37 pm

    JP you have done it again another success under your belt. Creating a work of beauty and art is not just about throwing in wads of cash, it is also about the care, attention to detail and that spark of creativity that makes it just that unique/special. Well done JP for you offering to Rinpoche.

  12. Cliff on Sep 13, 2013 at 12:54 am

    I never doubted JP’s artistic abilities, he has always been able to produce beautiful results that allows guest to feel welcome and at peace. The colour scheme and design of the whole layout of Rinpoche’s audience room was done really well! I wouldnt have been able to guessed that the left door panel was a door leading to a bathroom and kitchen! It was hidden so well! Thank you for sharing these photos Rinpoche, JP truly did a wonderful job.

  13. CK Siah on Sep 4, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    It is a very beautiful and peaceful room.
    Thank you JP for such a amazing job!

    敬愛的上師
    JP’s 的室內設計和材料選擇搭配都是盡善盡美。再加上特別的燈光效果更突出環境的清靜與庄嚴。很喜歡紫褐色的牆壁,讓我在看到Manjushri時,感覺特別好。太棒了。

  17. tenzin llhamo on Aug 30, 2013 at 11:00 pm

    JP is really talented!! I was shocked when I saw the before and after pictures! He really have good taste and style when it comes to designs! I love the new audience room! Thank you JP for such a good job!

  18. Karen Chong on Aug 29, 2013 at 8:38 pm

    It is very obvious that JP shows his guru devotion on his works. It is not surprised this great design job comes from JP Thong, again, after Dukkar apts and Enchanted Forest. Under so many portfolios in Kechara, he managed to juggle every of his projects very well and produce excellent results. He is such an inspiring leader in this organisation whom we could learn from and he is always willing to teach you everything. JP Thong, keep it going and you are always our source of learning!

  19. Jessica Yap on Aug 29, 2013 at 1:51 am

    Such a beautiful room! Good job JP!

    When someone puts so much effort and time into completing a task/assignment, it only means that they’re sincere and care about the task at hand.
    In this case, the beautiful audience room is a good proof that JP took on the mission well with care! With so many portfolios under his name, it only shows that he is very hands on and very detail orientated. Bravol, JP!
    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  20. Uncle Eddie on Aug 28, 2013 at 1:30 pm

    In Dharma practice, it is said that those who have done virtues or non-virtuous actions have created corresponding pleasant or unpleasant results to come and these, are believed, will never be lost nor perished on their own. As in this case of JP Thong, the result is now seen by his astounding creation of furnishing the Audienceroom so beautifully which pleases our Guru so much and made him so very delighted and happy. It is said that karma is subtle, which we may not remember moment by moment like JP Thong case, but are now reaping good beneficial results. Making the Guru happy and pleased as what JP did should be the precious desire of all student practicioners! Many heartfelt congratulations and thank-yous’ to JP Thong for the good work well-done!!!!!

  21. Jutika Lam on Aug 27, 2013 at 11:48 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It is amazing how JP’s creativity and designing abilities just never seem to end…. I am totally amazed how he managed to transform a simple audience room in to a very grand and comfortable room.

    I am really surprised how JP managed to do such an amazing and spectacular room where many people will learn Dharma from!

    Good Job JP!!!!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing!

    Love
    Jutika

  22. pat on Aug 27, 2013 at 11:27 am

    Wow,It’s really beautiful!!.Nice people always produce good & nice things:)

  23. Albert Ratchaga on Aug 25, 2013 at 10:05 am

    This is really beautiful, beautiful is not how JP decorated it, but it’s JP’s care towards Rinpoche to decorate the whole room so that Rinpoche can have a better place to meet people or to have meeting with his students.

    JP is a person with multitalent, he can do everything from the lowest till the top, from fixing a floor tile to managing a company. With his passionate heart towards Dharma, his practice is totally shown in his work, the result in the work that JP produced.

    “If one can’t do the small thing well, he will not able to achieve big thing”

  24. Low KHJB on Aug 25, 2013 at 10:03 am

    Thank you for the sharing Rinpoche. Thank you for a Great job done at KFR, JP.WE could not wait to have a chance to visit the audience room ,when we are at KFR in the near future.Keep it up,JP….

  25. Andrew James Boon on Aug 25, 2013 at 5:25 am

    The Audience room looks brilliant and most inviting. JP has this flair for design and a tenacity to get the job done well. This comes from his gratitude and integrity which is admirable.

    Well done JP… Again!!!

  26. Darren Kechara on Aug 24, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    Jp Thong has good eye on decorating. The color and lighting is very matching. 🙂

  27. Antoinette on Aug 24, 2013 at 4:06 am

    This looks really stunning. I love it. Great job, JP!! Perfect.

  28. AdelineTan on Aug 24, 2013 at 2:28 am

    JP is multi talented, creative and stylish may it be interior design, colour scheme and the lightings etc etc. Most of all he sets great example of Guru devotion through his work and this is very inspirational.Thank you JP for all your good work.

  29. wansan on Aug 23, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    what a big difference! JP definitely did a wonderful and amazing job in designing this room. Everything is so well thought. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

  30. Yasmin on Aug 23, 2013 at 10:07 am

    So much difference, and I really love the colour and everything!! Good Job! I think it seems like a very good and spacious area for people to gather.

  31. Thierry on Aug 23, 2013 at 9:00 am

    This is a truly remarkable design job!
    No surprise it comes from JP who has shown a natural talent for interior design work AND architecture also (with the EF and Dukkar App).
    JP also understands how to play with lighting, and how to create a “dramatic” perspective.
    The audience room looks really fabulous. Congratulations!
    This is how JP shows his guru devotion.

  32. Erickksiow on Aug 23, 2013 at 2:36 am

    JP is very creative. Love this

  33. Felix Kong on Aug 23, 2013 at 1:18 am

    Thank you JP, you are so talent ,design a simple,nice and comfortable audience room. I like the the Manjushri image, very beautiful and matching with audience room. Your caring and effort are truly inspiring me. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

  34. pavara on Aug 22, 2013 at 10:33 pm

    The first thing i have to say to JP is thank you.
    The design that you made is really nice.
    Without JP we wold not have K.F.R.
    JP has changed a lot since the first time i saw him.
    Thank you JP for what you have did for Kechara,i really appreciate

  35. Sean Wang on Aug 22, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    This is amazing! JP truly has a talent for interior design even though he was not really into it prior as he worked in a hotel. I rejoice that JP found his talent. It shows how much effort and care he places into the Dharma work. Amazing!

  36. Adrian Chow on Aug 22, 2013 at 8:35 pm

    Nice job JP as always..as Rinpoche mentioned you could win a lot of awards for your passion and talent…:)

  37. wei theng on Aug 22, 2013 at 5:57 pm

    This is a so beautiful! Simple yet elegant, tradition yet with modern touch!
    JP has a very good taste. On top of that, he is very hardworking and cares a lot about Rinpoche and wants to get the best for Rinpoche. After working at KFR in the day time, he still came over to eDiv late in the evening to meet Cynthia & Debbie to check the photos of Lama Tsongkhapa, discussing and choosing the wall paper that will match the whole ambience & drawings.
    Rejoice on the great piece of art JP! You are also the great example for me to follow especially on your Guru Devotions & the cares for others.

  38. mitra on Aug 22, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    o my bhangawan amazing jp did very wonderful job.Thank you jp for make hapen and thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

  40. Wah Ying on Aug 22, 2013 at 11:38 am

    哇,很棒的“大变身”!不管是材料的选择还是灯光照明都是恰到好处地表现出庄严、简单、庄重。一级棒!

  41. Lin lee on Aug 22, 2013 at 9:57 am

    Nice JP……very very nice!

  42. Pastor Yek Yee on Aug 22, 2013 at 5:09 am

    Totally amazing, I love it so much. I want to said thank you to JP Thong who always have good taste, talented and very caring.

    JP is a person who you like to hang around with him no matter work or go to fun. He is the kind of person always make you feel warm and fun.

  43. lucy yap on Aug 22, 2013 at 12:48 am

    Fantastic color combination and minimalistic furniture placed in strategic places serve their purpose without being a hindrance which result in maximising space emanate a feeling of calmness which helps in relaxing the mind and the soul.A brilliant make over!
    A huge congratulations to JP and continued success.
    Thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures and post Rinpoche.

  44. Lucas Roth on Aug 21, 2013 at 11:27 pm

    i love it, it is very nice uncle JP you are very good! i love the rearrangement it is so nice. good job, i hope everyone is going to have a good time there. thank you for sharing this Rinpoche.

  45. Julien Roth on Aug 21, 2013 at 11:18 pm

    Very Nice Rinpoche! JP really has a good eye and taste for this sort of thing. He did such a wonderful job matching everything perfectly. He really does have potential if he really put his mind to it as he did this time. I hope Rinpoche is enjoying his new rooms with such wonderful design.

  46. beatrix ooi on Aug 21, 2013 at 10:42 pm

    Uncle JP is very good at designing, I love the colour of the rug because it really matches the surrounding walls, especially the one behind Rinpoche’s seat.
    It shows that Uncle JP has put in a lot of effort to get it done, it will benefit a lot of people who will be meeting Rinpoche in that room in the future. Great job Uncle JP!

  47. Sharon Saw on Aug 21, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    Well done, JP! This external transformation is really a reflection of JP’s inner transformation… the meticulous care and deep love he has designed the audience room with is evidence of his care and love for his Guru and the Dharma. I rejoice for JP who continues to serve Rinpoche with complete devotion and humility which is truly inspiring. This audience room will be a place where many will come to seek blessings and teachings from Rinpoche and it will be a space where many will have their lives changed… what a beautiful space it is indeed.

  48. David Lai on Aug 21, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    Love your work JP. I think you keep getting better and better at it. It’s simple, classy, warm and inviting. I love what you did with the colors of the thangkas and how each thangka has the main deity highlighted. Great work! It’s such a far cry from the white lights and grey furniture. It’s simply fantastic. Wish I had your sense of style. Hehe!

  49. June Kang on Aug 21, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    Amazing! Is beautiful! JP always pay attention to Kechara image. He is not only care about Ladrang and KFR image; he is also concerned about the image of other departments. When he came to KWPC office, he advised me how to beautify the office, not only that, he is also care about the people around him, he always take care of me and I respect him, willing to support what he is doing。Thank you JP.One more thing, most of the beautiful furniture and fitting at Dukkar Apartment also arranged by him.

  50. Ong Moh Mei on Aug 21, 2013 at 5:12 pm

    Absolutely stunning! The details, the combination, the color, the texture all match perfectly. Such is the focus and care JP put into renovating the audience room for Rinpoche. The result speaks volume of the student’s care and commitment to the Guru. Thank you JP for being such an inspiration.

  51. guat hee on Aug 21, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    WAO…that really nice matching colour.

  52. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Aug 21, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    The changes really different for audience room before vs after. From the comparison, it really can felt that JP have put in great effort and care to made this happen.JP really set good examples and manage well even thought handle so many functions. We always saw him to have discussion with team or contractors in KFR.i like the quote : “Care is the key for success combined with consistency”,this should apply in our daily life.

  53. HelenaC on Aug 21, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    Very very nice, JP did a fantastic job designing Rinpoche’s audience room. JP has excellent good taste and style personally and on Interior design too hehehe…. Rejoice for JP hard work. Love the place 😉

  54. May Ong on Aug 21, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    What can we say about the room. It is like 5-star hotel standard, award winning, chic, cool and comfortable especially the new sofa seats on both sides of the wall.

    The design befits JP Thong’s impeccable taste and Rinpoche’s idea of how an Audience Room should look like. Beautiful! Great job as always, JP!

  55. Lim Han Nee on Aug 21, 2013 at 2:29 pm

    It’s all about Tsongkhapa and about Manjushri! 15 lovely pictures depicting the life, accomplishment and deeds of Je Tsongkhapa and 1 lovely sacred image of Manjushri. All of these sacred pictures have been put together by JP Thong in such creative harmony, and the whole audience room of Rinpoche has been so creatively designed by him to blend well together in such soothing lovely colours.

    All of this can only be the fruit of much love and devotion and an eye for artistic details. The whole room’s design and colour scheme speak for JP Thong, who translated his love and Guru Devotion into all this.

  56. sarahyap on Aug 21, 2013 at 1:53 pm

    I’m not surprised. JP is one of the few people that understands Rinpoche very much and know the type of interior style, color scheme and designs that Rinpoche would like. He is always very attentive when it comes to things that Rinpoche likes, very caring. Just like the recent trip when Rinpoche went to HK with a few students, JP was there a few days earlier and prepared Rinpoche’s room very well.

  57. Sofi on Aug 21, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    Wow, such a big difference wt the before/after look. Definitely a very nice after. A very modern approach that is soothing and peaceful, very conducive for receiving audience and giving teachings. Very creative wt good taste! Thumbs up!

  58. hecelus tan on Aug 21, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    JP Thong has artistically aware of interior design. How excellent is the final masterpiece that he presented to Rinpoche and through this we can know how much effort did JP had been put in. It is modern and comfortable. The whole design kept the tradition’s needed, love it!

  59. Grace Leong on Aug 21, 2013 at 11:51 am

    JP’s talent and results clearly show us what a student can achieve or attain if he or she accepts and follow thru the instructions and teachings of his Guru. With his strong and consistent devotion to Rinpoche whatever seemed impossible became a reality, one that is so beautiful beyond any of our imagination! Thank you JP for being an inspiration ! Thank you Rinpoche for all the skillful means you have used to teach us the Dharma.

  60. Katie on Aug 21, 2013 at 11:42 am

    Lovely!!

  61. Yvonne Yap on Aug 21, 2013 at 11:40 am

    I also say ” very nice”, is more modern and class. Thank you JP

  62. henry ooi on Aug 21, 2013 at 11:16 am

    JP sure is a natural. He has a good eye for aesthetics in detail and has renovated and decorated other buildings of Kechara especially the ladrang in the city of Kuala Lumpur.
    I know who to look for if I want my house refurbished: JP Thong of Kechara Interiors 🙂
    Well done, JP!

  63. Elsie Toy on Aug 21, 2013 at 10:45 am

    There are many talented people in Kechara who put their body mind and soul to serve the Guru and everyone in Samsara. The transformation of the rooms were really great that creates a warm atmosphere to the environment from the cold hard concrete environment. Rejoice, rejoice rejoice.

    Thank you very much Rinpoche for sharing this so that we can be more mindful in everything we do not just getting it done but to the finest quality. Thank You JP

  64. Sheryl KH(JB) on Aug 21, 2013 at 9:44 am

    To give an audience room a complete make-over with everything starting from design to getting materials and overseeing contractor’s works within a short time frame of 3 weeks is not easy. It is all about devotion.

    I like how audience room looks now. It has elements of warmth, coziness, education (15 pictures of Tsongkhapa and 1 picture of Manjushri), arts and respect to the Guru into one place. I still do not know much on Dharma, but perhaps sitting on a cozy chair while having audience with high lama is not really that respectful? We should all have lower seats as compared to our Lama, and this element is clearly demonstrated physically. Our environment does have impacts onto our minds. Having said this, I like the presence of the carpet too.

    It is nice that Rinpoche likes what has been made for Him. It is nice that LP has this opportunity to do something that pleases his Guru. Amazing that without formal education in interior design, JP can do a good job. I think it all boils down to love, devotion and persistency.

  65. Choongs on Aug 21, 2013 at 9:20 am

    Exquisite!

  66. Janice Kwok on Aug 21, 2013 at 8:34 am

    Fantastic job JP. Beautiful transformation, its wam and inviting.

  67. Fong on Aug 21, 2013 at 8:16 am

    Wonderful sense of space and colour. Made the room seem timeless and ethereal……kudos to JP for the awesome job

  68. Oya on Aug 21, 2013 at 8:15 am

    absolutely stunning ~ heart opening room, really lovely!
    Oya

  69. James Long on Aug 21, 2013 at 6:52 am

    Very nice! Simple, neat, combination of traditional and modern arts! The 15 Thangka of Lama Tsongkhapa life is very beautiful, every house should have Lama Tsongkhapa image or statue home. By the way, this time do not have JP “stripe pattern” in this room.

  70. Jojo Wong on Aug 21, 2013 at 5:50 am

    Great job JP, I think this doesnt only request talent, this has to be a combination of hard work, passion and love for the guru! Looking amazing and exquisite, cant wait to visit!

    I like the dragon in the audience room entrance (leading to wisdom hall). Although not sure why dragon is on the floor – I was told placing Dharma items on the floor is bad for whatever reason (disrespectful I assume). I hope people are mindful and do not step on the Dragon!

  72. Joy on Aug 21, 2013 at 4:31 am

    Well what can I say… Jp you did it again! I will remember your wise words… “this is not my style, but I choose the designs based on Rinpoche’s style and what Rinpoche likes”. Well this statement to be made me realise how devoted you are as a student of Rinpoche cos in that line you showed your devotion and your consideration of others. Yes it may not be your style but you learn the style Rinpoche likes and applies it. I guess that is why your concept and style for renovations, building and ID comes out 90% fabulous!

    Yes I know, I know, but if your not creative and stylish, no matter what, you’re just not… but if you are…

    Truth is it is not just about being “creative”, you got to know and be sensitive to what the person you are creating it for likes… this we learn in Advertising but it applies everywhere in life. This is where most creating people also fail because they keep thinking about “their” creativity. I remembered my ex-boss used to say… “God is in the eye of details” and one of the biggest detail is creating something your audience or receiver would appeal to.

    Well this sure is no ordinary audience room for this is the room of His Eminence personal meetings with people who will seek advice, help, blessings that may change their lives forever. And when a place is conducive and comfortable, appealing to all 5 senses, then it creates the perfect environment for the Dharma teachings to go in. No excuses then hu? 😉

    Bravo JP and also Cynthia Lee for a great job tweaking the Lama Tsongkhapa life stories. It turned out very nice! x

  73. Adrian Cho on Aug 21, 2013 at 4:14 am

    Wow….It is totally can see the much different, compare before to after of this audience room. This is really so beautiful and looks more comfortable. JP, you are the best and good job. You are really inspiring me 🙂

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing to us.

  74. June Tang(khjb) on Aug 21, 2013 at 3:50 am

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this beautiful audience rooms! JP did the great job! He is really creative and talented,Guru’s audience room really very beautiful, peaceful and comfortable,
    I just love it !!!

  75. Petros Theods on Aug 21, 2013 at 2:49 am

    very well designed and minimal. I love it when the elaborate Tibetan elements are combined with minimalist – nearly Japanese Zen like – architecture.

  76. Pavel on Aug 21, 2013 at 2:48 am

    … Nothing short of amazing. JP must be very skillful with the eyes as well as with hearts

  77. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Aug 21, 2013 at 1:42 am

    JP u r so awesome, thanks u for prepare such sacred, comfort hence meaningful audience room for Guru.

    All the guests sure will be blessed and get to know more about Lord Tsongkhapa…

  78. Edward ooi on Aug 21, 2013 at 12:58 am

    Dear Rinpoche, my opinion to JP is that he is a funny, smart, very good at designing and a sociable person. That place looked so much comfortable after JP redesign the whole place. And the 15 paintings about Tsongkhapa’s live are really beautiful. We sure have many talented Kecharians.

  79. Lars on Aug 21, 2013 at 12:34 am

    Wow! Looks great! Such a majestic view gazing up on Rinpoches chair, whatever junk that clouds the mind will effectively flee upon entering such a hall, leaving the guest fully focused on the present.:) Great job JP!

  80. sweekeong on Aug 21, 2013 at 12:30 am

    My initial thought was where was this audience room. After reading and digesting the news I realized that it is in Wisdom Hall after all. The before and after image the renovation done to the room one would not recognize it. This is a very beautiful room indeed. I think you could only see it in the movies. It is very inspiring to see such well designed room in the midst of Bentong jungle. I am very happy for JP.

  81. Keng nam on Aug 21, 2013 at 12:24 am

    Exquisite. You are indeed one with your Lama.

  82. LilyT on Aug 21, 2013 at 12:12 am

    What a difference! This was not what Rinpoche’s audience room looked like a couple of days ago. What a transformation! It is a rather big room but JP had given it a warm and inviting ambience. My sister,Shirley, was amazed by the clever use of panellings to disguise the doorway. Keep up the good work, JP. There is no end to your talent.

  83. tfreon on Aug 21, 2013 at 12:00 am

    JP have good eyes to beautify things. It is so simple and yet nice.
    I really like the design from the matching of the colors to the chairs.
    I can only share, this is done from a heart is sincere.

    • tfreon on Aug 21, 2013 at 12:06 am

      Correction:
      JP always have good eyes to beautify things.
      The arrangement of the room is so simple and yet turn to be “elegant” and neat.

      I really like the design, from the matching of the colors to the chairs to the painting of Manjushri & Tsongkhapa on the wall. He take care of every single details.

      This is done from a heart that is truly sincere.

  84. M.B. on Aug 20, 2013 at 11:43 pm

    It’s very nice – I like it. although it would be better for the students to have taller tables in front of their seats in order to see better their books and to be more comfortable to write down notes.

  85. Sock Wan on Aug 20, 2013 at 11:37 pm

    Beautiful! JP has really good taste 🙂 He is capable of making a place that is not of the highest quality looks very exclusive and posh.

  86. ani kunzang on Aug 20, 2013 at 11:35 pm

    what a transformation to a place of space and peace and simple, tranquil beauty. thank you for sharing this, Rinpoche.

  87. poney sim on Aug 20, 2013 at 11:23 pm

    Thank you.for Rinpoche sharing
    It is so beautiful …love it

  88. Soon Huat on Aug 20, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    The design look very match like one piece. It showed that JP has put a lot of thoughts on it. Great Job JP.

  89. Koh Hee Peng on Aug 20, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    Thank you JP for so much for your care and attention towards the colour, texture, and the arrangement of the room. Despite your tight schedule, you have done magic to the room. Thank you.

  90. Sharon Ong on Aug 20, 2013 at 11:02 pm

    I just LOVE the colour scheme! JP is such a genius!

  91. MartinC on Aug 20, 2013 at 10:58 pm

    There seems to be no end to JP’s talents and its not only the intelligence and the skills but these innate abilities driven further by JP’s love for Rinpoche. What JP does with these interior designs are not just evidences of his talents but also testimony of how close to his heart JP holds Rinpoche. It is the mark of a student who wants the world to see his Guru in the highest regard possible and JP’s work sends out that message clearly.

    What Rinpoche said about JP winning accolades if he were to do this commercially is without a doubt, but just looking at Rinpoche’s deep appreciation of JP’s efforts is far more valuable than any awards for sure.What a great example of Guru devotion.

  92. patricia on Aug 20, 2013 at 10:53 pm

    Absolutely spectacular. Bravo!

  93. adelinewoon on Aug 20, 2013 at 10:52 pm

    JP shows his love & care directly onto the works he did. Everything he touches will eventually becomes breath taking in many ways. JP is someone who’ll make sure everything is done to the finest details with no excuse. I admire his dedication to Rinpoche that is obviously shown in this particular masterpiece. I can tell he is an observant who will make sure what is done suits the person which the work is dedicated to. JP, thank you for all your love & kindness to Rinpoche, for creating an environment inviting more to be part of Kechara Forest Retreat!

  94. Girlie OOI on Aug 20, 2013 at 10:46 pm

    Dear JP
    You have done such a wonderful job in turning Rinpoche’s audience room into a beautiful room with such warmth. Love it!
    Is there anything that you are not good at?

  95. colin tan on Aug 20, 2013 at 10:36 pm

    Great job JP. Looks very welcoming. Show how much care u put into it.

    I am Jealous of ur talent. Hehe.successful

  96. Jim Yeh on Aug 20, 2013 at 10:30 pm

    Dharma Protector practice especially Kawang prayer is very powerful to purify our negative karma that accumulated since our countless past lifetimes. If this karma is not purified, it can manifest as obstacles to our Dharma practice and can hinder our spiritual progress. When we practice diligently, Kawang prayer is very effective to clear and stabilise the mind when doubts and confusion arise. Eventually, we will achieve the ultimate happiness of full enlightenment and no longer need any dharma protector.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness and compassion to give us this practice to liberate us from suffering and toward enlightenment.

    Amazing to have Dorje Shugden in so many styles. Rinpoche is really creative to create and commission so many types and styles to suit everyone so all of us have a chance to connect and practise Dorje Shugden. Thank you Rinpoche and team for getting all the various beautiful paintings within a short time.

    Puan Sabariah really has a big heart. She cooks and serves everyone regardless of race as she only wants to bring joy, happiness and warm food to the homeless. It is already not easy to cook for 20 or 30 person but she managed to cook for 300 a day from her apartment and even up to 1,000 during Ramadhan. Her work it a great inspiration to many and great reminder to always love and help people no matter what their background is. And now at 70 years old still continue working to help the refugees. So we also should not give up helping others and don’t use age as an excuse.

    I used to hear a few people around me say that they are OCD towards certain triggers. From their description, I was under the impression that OCD means they have low tolerance towards the trigger. With this article clearly stating the symptoms of people with OCD suffering from the obsession that triggers compulsion in doing something, OCD actually is a serious illness. It results in physical or emotional distress. It appears to me that OCD sufferer’s mind are programed to hold onto to a certain perception very strongly. I hope there will be medical help to reduce their fixation so that their quality of life will improve. Thank you for this sharing, Rinpoche.

    I feel very sad for the animals and embarrassing at the same time that our national zoo were in such a poor state. Charging RM 30 (with MyKad) and RM50 (without MyKad) per entry is not cheap and this clearly shows that the zoo is not well managed. Animals are already being captured with no freedom and the situation is made worse with poor condition, unsanitary, lack of food and medical assistance. I hope the authority will look into this urgently and take action to rectify the situation.

    This is indeed a great move from the California authority and passing it as a law. This move will surely reduce the number of puppy mills and reduce the suffering of animals tremendously. Many cats and dogs suffered as most breeders do not maintain and treat the animals poorly. Hopefully more states in United States and other countries will follow suit on this noble act.

    There are three purification practices and Kawang is one of them, most suitable to purify heavy bodily karma as well as clearing and stabilising the mind when doubts or confusion arise in times of conflict or when one is on the verge of giving up on something virtuous. From the sharing by Pastor David, the key to this practice is consistency. Doing the kawang prayer as part of our daily sadhana is akin to building up a strong bond with Dorje Shugden, hence, able to invoke his blessing more effectively.

    这是一个很好的佛法教育的视频。仁波切选择了转世到恶劣的环境下成长,但是在这不影响仁波切放弃学习佛法的精神,反而造就了一个菩萨心肠的圣人。仁波切承受很多的痛苦,仁波切不愿意看到他人痛苦,所以发愿要帮助更多流宿街头者给他们援助。
    仁波切的坎坷成长过程给我们一个很正面的教育。环境的影响大不过于我们内心的想法。所以要先修心然后才修行。

    感恩仁波切的教悔使我知道快乐不仅是拥有而是我们付出多少让别人快乐。

    This is an unbiased piece that gives a clear and easy to understand overview of the Dorje Shugden controversy. It is a “as a matter fact” piece that should be accepted easily by the general public.

    It has been a 20 year struggle for the Dorje Shugden practitioners since His Holiness the Dalai Lama imposed a ban on the practice. Families, friends, relatives, couples, etc. were separated due to it. There were many innocent people who were hurt, abandoned and killed because of it. This intended result is totally against the concept of compassion, kindness and equality His Holiness represents.

    Many assumed that all Dorje Shugden practitioners do not like His Holiness and they all demonstrated in his teachings for the last 20 years or so with the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT) founded by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. It has been pointed out distinctively in this article that it is not the case.

    His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has always fought the unlawful ban by peaceful and powerful means – writing and education. His Eminence preaches patience and kindness that reflect on his approach in the face of hate speech, threats, etc. He also taught his students to do the same.

    His Eminence’s approach seems to be more effective as people are being educated on the controversy and many turned their minds because of that.

    Spontaneity is the state of realizing boredom does have enemies.~Tsem Rinpoche

    Being with someone we love or don’t love should not make a difference to a genuine practioner expunged of the I.~Tsem Rinpoche

    Dorje Shugden is not a cause, a movement or religion but who I am, for that person is compassion, love and acceptance.~Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this article from Huffington Post. Dorje Shugden ban is getting more people’s attention in the world now. This is a good time for everyone to think, find out more and understand the truth about this issue. This is no longer about the issue of religious but it is more to the fundamental human rights on their freedom and religious that bring much impact in their life.

    Basically, everyone may wish to have their life is improving and getting better. But, it seems that this is not applied to the Tibetan people. The Tibetan people especially Dorje Shugden practitioners have suffered and facing a lot of difficulties, segregation and discrimination for the past 20 years. This situation is getting worse when Sera Jey Monastery introduced an identity badge system to for its monks to indicate that they were not Dorje Shugden practitioner. From that, we can understand those who are practiced Dorje Shugden were not welcome at the monastic university. This is another kind of discrimination happening now in Tibet.

    I humbly wish that those who are given Dorje Shugden practice by your guru, please continue to have strong faith in your guru and Dorje Shugden. For those who have misunderstand or do not know about Dorje Shugden, please think and understand that our concern now is not only about the religious but the importance of fundamental human rights for people.

    It is uncommon to read unbiased articles about Dorje Shugden issue, more so on international mainstream media. Many international mainstream media shy away from the issue because it is controversial, it involves a 400 years old deity practice that “outsider” finds hard to verify and it deeply intertwines in the entangled Tibetan-China political relationship. Therefore, I rejoice for the job well done by the Huffington Post for carrying this unbiased, well researched and factual article; it is very refreshing and encouraging for all Shugdenpas, for a change.

    Shugden practice is being accused of threatening the unity of all the Buddhism sects in Tibet. The Huffington Post rightly points out that for the past four centuries, Dorje Shugden was propitiated alongside all these main Buddhism schools without any signs of aggressive purge, as claimed by the HHDL people post 1976.

    The only difference between the Shugden practice and the rest of the Tibetan Buddhism practice is almost close to zero. It is really a matter of emphasis. Yet, the ban initiated by HHDL, in all his wisdom, have been fervently actualised by the CTA over the years. Resulting in the ostracisation of the entire Shugden community, and followed by many abuse, beating and threats that ensued on a day-to-day basis. Is it not the exact aggressive purge that threatens the unity of the Buddhism community?

    The deity is being demonised further with no basis. And the community is accused of being Chinese spy. Interestingly, the Chinese angle became an opportune played well by the Beijing after they learnt of this fall out and exploit the discord against their arch rival, HHDL. Will HHDL and his think-tank finally admit that it is better to lift the ban so that the Chinese can stop using it to widen the divide?

    There is another key issue not being pressed on in this article, which I believe it is out of respect to HHDL. This article did not question why HHDL, a 1989 Nobel Peace Prize Laurette, is not hesitant to show no mercy to his own people practicing Dorje Shugden; which is to go against what he championed for the rest of the world.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the team for this wonderful and uplifting sharing!

    These videos are very necessary to counter the repeated false claims by the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) on the unlawful ban of Dorje Shugden. These videos were highly circulated by the Tibetans on social media platform. Now that the Tibetan version is available, more Tibetans can understand the contradictory statements made by their leader Lobsang Sangyay and the kashag (cabinet). It is very important that the Tibetans understand so that they can unite and join force to vote for a different and more capable leaders who will really do something that benefit them.

    Nowadays when people speak about Nechung, they are NOT referring to the real Nechung deity who is a benevolent being and is helpful according to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Many high lamas and Tibetans believe that Nyatrul is taking trance in the current Nechung oracle. This is the result of the Tibetan Leadership’s heavy negative karma.

    Nyatrul is said to be insistent on destroying Tibetan unity by posing as Nechung and giving wrong advice to the Tibetan Leadership. One can imagine to continue listening to Nyatrul will result in the Tibetan Leadership continue to make decisions that will bring them failure.

    The Tibetan Leadership is very fortunate to have Tenpa Yarphel to speak up on the flaws to rely on the Nechung oracle. There are just too many false advices given among which is the most important one, for the Dalai Lama and the Tibetans to return to Tibet. By now, it should be obvious that it is a wrong prophecy because after 60 years the Tibetans still cannot return back to Tibet.

    In addition, relying on an oracle for state matters is not a practise of a democratic government which includes religious freedom and human rights. Forcing people who do not believe in Nechung to listen to him and allowing him to decide their future is a breach of religious freedom and human rights – the freedom to practise any religion and the rights to choose one’s religion or belief.

    By speaking up bravely, MP Tenpa Yarphel brought the flaws of the Tibetan Leadership into the limelight with the hope that more and more people will come forward to make change within the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA). Until that is done, the Tibetans will continue to suffer from wrong advices with no hope for improvement.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k

The Huffington Post extensively covers the Dorje Shugden issue. I had no idea that this article was being written. I was not contacted, not asked for an interview or asked for any comments, and then it was published and my students alerted me to it. So it was a very, very pleasant and encouraging surprise to read such balanced coverage from such a reputable news website. You can read it here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=149806

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa\'s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. 

This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

In the bitter coldness of Yachen Gar, Tibet, several nuns are practicing meditation. You can see many small single \'huts\' in the background. They do this yearly and throughout the year. It is very inspiring to see people practice even under extreme conditions because they realize how samsara is so full of deceptions. Praise to the Dharma that liberates us with truth and practice.

    The King of Nagas knows this great being Siddhartha will soon become the Buddha. By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now. The pre-eminent Buddha is an object of perfect offering gaining great merits for all beings. Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)
