Dear Kechara House,

Look at these incredibly BEAUTIFUL representations of Englighenment coming to Kechara House soon! We are just awaiting the completion of the renovations on our New Gompa or prayer hall.


Statue1

This is the grand 10 ft Tsongkapa in Long Life form (Je Tse Zinma) that will be invited to our new Kechara Gompa under renovation now. It will be the centrepiece of our new Gompa or prayer hall.

Notice the man on the bottom left near Tsongkapa’s lotus…from that you can get a perspective of the size of Tsongkapa. (above)

Statue2

The artist is darkened as to respect his anonymity working on the 7 ft Setrap Statue for our new Kechara Gompa. Setrap is the Dharma Protector of Kechara House and has shown many incredible signs to the practitioners here hence many are very devoted to Setrap now. The people adopting Setrap is more and growing.


Statue3

The artist working on our sacred 7 ft Vajra Yogini statue for Kechara Gompa. Vajra Yogini will be the main higher tantra path Kecharians will engage in. Our whole organization is named after the divine Buddha Field of Vajra Yogini which is KECHARA.

In the centre of our Gompa will be Tsongkapa. To the left, Vajra Yogini and on the far right will be Setrap. The Lama, Yidam and dharma protector.

We are all very excited to invite these sacred images back being done by Kechara Discovery ( http://www.kechara.com/discovery/ ).

    Wow! The statues are getting bigger as KH progress up another notch! Causes are created from Kechara Gompa to Menara Kechara to Kechara World Peace Centre!

    I still recall when a mutual friend told me about the Kechara outlet SS2 back in 2000 and visited it 2-3 times out of curiosity with another close friend and NOW…seeing it expanding in such phenomenal leaps and bounds!
    As the saying goes…’There’s no way but UP!’ (sideways too if that is permissible :-P )
    (My silent wish: May my karma allow me to be part of the Kechara family…svaha!

  7. Ivy on Jun 21, 2010 at 8:25 pm

    These are awesome! What beautiful work :)

  8. ng on Jun 22, 2010 at 12:22 am

    Everything grows in Kechara :)

  9. Shin Tan on Jun 22, 2010 at 8:24 am

    I hope they complete the statues FAST and send them at superspeed to Kechara !!!!

  10. Elaine Cheah on Jun 23, 2010 at 1:02 am

    Unfinished but so majestic already. Just by looking at them creates waves of benefits, what more to have them in our midst. Rinpoche, thank you for inspiring such beautiful representations of enlightenment for our beautiful home, Kechara.

  11. Jean Mei on Jul 4, 2010 at 4:02 am

    It’s nice to see these photos as I don’t think that a lot of people have ever seen a statue that has not already been painted on with their respective clothes and ornaments don on already. I don’t think that I have ever seen a statue in clay in real life, thinking about it. Seeing what it look likes without all the extra things on the statue I still find them very powerful to look at, especially Setrap. The sculpturer have a great skill(…slightly jealous :P ) and I’m grateful that he has chosen to do Buddha statues. Kechara has done a great job by sourcing him out as he seems to be doing a great job. These beautiful statues will benefit many – those who see and pray to them in Kechara House :) I pray that the sculpturer will be able to create enough merits to have a good rebirth.
    I just scrolled up to look at the photos again….MAN, that’s a lot of work! :P

  12. Paris on Jul 4, 2010 at 11:33 pm

    That’s right! And from Kechara’s side, Paul of Kechara Discovery (www.kechara.com/discovery) is single-handedly overseeing these statues. It’s not been easy – he has to travel almost every month to overseas to check on the progress and advise the artists on the iconography and details of each statue.
    This is an accumulation of many years of Paul working on countless statues (which are now in our outlets), pendants, and other Dharma items. Seeing these pictures is a reminder of just how much work, effort, time and love has to go into the making of all these statues, that will be of so much benefit to people, in pujas, retreats etc
    I like what you said about how most of us will never really know what goes into the making of a statue because we only usually see them when they’re up, shiny and beautiful on the altar. It’s really nice to see these photos of work in progress, and to see it all coming together.

  13. Joy Kam on Jul 5, 2010 at 3:59 am

    These life size statues are amazing and I just cannot wait for it to come to Kechara House!
    Liaison Paul Yap of Kechara Discovery http://www.kechara.com/b2b/ has worked tremendously hard in making sure these custom made statues are done correctly and it is a pain staking process. People don’t often see the back stage process of research, sourcing and looking for the right artist to do the job. Kudos to Paul and his team for making our dream come alive and for us all to be one step closer to achieving our new bigger, better Gompa to house and benefit more people.
    I especially love love love the Vajrayogini !!!
    If only we can all have a house big enough to have one at home!

  14. Wendyyyho on Jul 5, 2010 at 12:15 pm

    How exciting! The 10 ft Long Life Tsongkapa, 7 ft Vajrayogini and 7 ft Setrap statues will soon be invited to the new KH Gompa. All these images are being commissioned by our very own Kechara Discovery (http://www.kechara.com/discovery/), the Kechara arm responsible for commissioning holy images and organizing pilgrimage tours. Enlightened images is the physical representation of the path to enlightenment and in order for an enlightened image to have blessings, the iconography of the images must be in accordance to the scriptural text of the particular deity. Kechara Discovery ensures that enlightened images commissioned by them meet this criterion so that anyone who sees these images will be blessed and inspired to practice their spiritual path. Kudos to Paul and his team for doing a great job!

  15. David Lai on Jul 6, 2010 at 5:11 am

    How beneficial to have Lama Tsongkhapa coming to our Kechara House Gompa. Lama Tsongkhapa is particularly noted by High Lamas like Rinpoche to bestow peace, harmony as well as inner and outer growth of the organisation. On top of that, Lama Tsongkhapa is Manjushri and hence, he bestows the seven types of sacred wisdom upon students of Kechara House.
    In Tibet, Lama Tsongkhapa is particularly special and sensitive because he manifests a lot of miraculous signs to faithful students. Lama Tsongkhapa and Tara are the two Buddha statues that seemed to manifest the most miracles in Tibet. Hence, having a Lama Tsongkhapa has tremendous blessings for us and hopefully with our sincere practice and holding of commitments, may the image of Lama Tsongkhapa reveal many miraculous signs for new people.

  16. susan on Jul 6, 2010 at 5:49 am

    Rinpoche , thank you for posting these pictures. Many of us don’t see how much work goes on behind every major works. As in this case, so much preparations are done, how much work Liaison Paul Yap has to do to liaise with the artists, sculptures and statue maker before we even get to see these molds. Also, the hundreds of hours of teaching Rinpoche gave so that Paul can do his job well to ensure that the statues are made iconographically accurate as object of meditation and refuge. Rinpoche, thank you for imparting all these knowledge so we can benefit people in this region. I can imagine how beautiful these statues will be and awaits the day when they arrive into our new Gompa.

  17. Likheng on Jul 7, 2010 at 3:08 am

    At Kechara House, we are so fortunate to receive so much education about Dharma. Even the behind-the-scenes work of Buddha Image creation is shard so openly. To add to this, the accuracy of the mudras is something many of us take for granted.
    I remember when I first joined Kechara House, I received clear, comprehensive and passionate explanations about each mudra I saw at every Kechara Paradise outlet (retail outlets that sells all sorts of beautiful Dharma items) I visited. I was very impressed but it was not until later that I became extremely appreciative of the knowledge of the Kecharians plus their sincere willingness to share that knowledge. I realized this after I witness the condition of many other organizations that have limited knowledge about their Guru, Yidam and Dharma knowledge.
    This blessing stems from Tsem Rinpoche, a resident Lama in Kuala Lumpur, who is always with us and ready to share first hand information about Dharma openly and generously. Rinpoche continuously find methods to educate us sustainably about the Dharma to that Rinpoche’s efforts will liberate us…and not entrap us (by making us reliant on his teachings).
    One known method in which we can constantly obtain information about Dharma from Tsem Rinpoche is through this blog and all of Rinpoche’s other mediums of communication like Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and website. As we always recognize a good deal when we see one, let’s all log on NOW and start communicating with our kind Guru and his team of entourage to suck up all the Dharma “goodies” we can!

  18. Yokefui on Jul 7, 2010 at 3:48 pm

    Wow ! The 10 feet Tsongkhapa is not only awe inspiring but it will also bless the surrounding and people that have the good merits to see it.
    Through the kindness of our sponsors , KH has secured four shop lots at Sunwaymas Commercial Centre . However we need more funds for renovation, an Auction Dinner (http://www.kechara.com/peace-centre/news/double-fund-raising-extravaganza/) will be held on 18 July 2010 at the Grand Ballroom, Sunway Resort Hotel for this purpose.
    A portion of the funds raised will go to Kechara Soup Kitchen (http://www.kechara.com/soup-kitchen/).
    We promise it will be an evening of fine food and fun, don’t miss out on the chance to do double charities !

  19. ngeowchin on Jul 7, 2010 at 4:27 pm

    Rinpoche’s blog is the expression of his constant care for our spiritual development and education. Showing us this 3 magnificient trinity of Lama Tsongkapa, Vajrayogini and protector Setrap statues as work in progress is an eye opener.
    I believe the clay figures here form the body for the mould later. For the full blessings of the Buddhas to emanate through the statues, the dimensions and iconography must be accurate and precise according to the depictions in scriptures or traditional thangka painting commissioned or drawn by holy masters.All statues commissioned by Rinpoche are precise and hence will bring tremendous blessings to all.
    Much thanks to Paul to oversee and get the right artist to complete this assignment.

  20. joey on Jul 7, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    Amazing! All the statues are so lifelike and graceful! I cant wait for them to appear in Kechara House. Vajrayogini is so magnificent, graceful and awe inspiring that i almost wanted to take her hand so that she can take me to Kechara Pureland. And Lama Tsongkhapa looks so calm, peaceful and assuring that it brings peace to my heart. Setrap looks detailed and ferocious. It looks really good and the level of details look really really fine. It looks so different from all of the other statues that i have seen so far…these look more refined and detailed.
    I do wish that i could contribute at least a little to the sponsorship of the statues as the amount of merits will be huge! Every time someone prostrates to them, or gets inspired by their presence i get merits because it is because of my contribution it is there….hmm sounds like a plan…

  21. Ooi Pe on Jul 8, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    Paul has spent many hours traversing the globe looking for trained artisans so that he can commission these beautiful statues for our new Gompa. His eye for detail ensures that the iconographies of these statues are correct as has been explained to him by Rinpoche. His job does not end there – he still needs to follow through on the progress and this means many more trips overseas to oversee the works-in-progress. These beautiful statues will benefit the many people who will walk through the doors of our Gompa.
    If you think these statues are huge, wait until you see the ones planned for KWPC – there are going to be awesome “skyscrapers”.

  22. Pasquale2k on Jul 8, 2010 at 5:38 pm

    Wow, the 10ft Tsongkhapa, 7ft Lord Setrap and 7ft Vajrayogini Statue will be soon be seen in Kechara House New Gompa, I’m so excited now. Thank You Rinpoche for sharing these beautiful pictures here.
    Kechara Discovery (KD) has done a lot of good works, Liaison Paul work tirelessly to source out the super nice and also affordable statues around the world and make available for everyone to invite home in Malaysia. Besides that, KD has a wide range nice Buddha pendant that make available for everyone to purchased and wear it.
    I’m truly amazed of Paul works and commitment to Rinpoche. And KD has grown so much, from 1 person department, and now a bunch of hardworking people like Louise, Yvonne, Bee Yen, Andy and also never forgets our JB friend – Yen Ping. Kudos to KD and Paul.

  23. Sean on Jul 8, 2010 at 6:20 pm

    Wow! The statues are amazingly big. I really can wait to see them and our new Gompa. The students of His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche have a lot to look out for as the Gompa might be done before the of the current year of 2010! I can’t wait to see the giant 10 feet statue of Lama Tsongkhapa.! Even the artist shows great respects for his great masterpieces of art because of respect towards Setrap Chen! I think it is quite cool to see a 7 feet Vajrayogini statue Our whole organization is named after the divine Buddha Field of Vajra Yogini which is KECHARA.

  24. Wasukamol on Jul 8, 2010 at 7:02 pm

    Most of Kecharian have a Lama Tsongkhapa, Vajrayogini and Dharmapala Setrap statues on their altars at home in different size which they has been making offering, doing prayer daily.
    In Kechara house we have a 5th Lama tsonkhapa, 3ft Setrap and 5 ft Vajrayogini in Rinpoche ladrang which has been making offering constantly for the grow of Kechara organization. From the amount of merit that the whole kecharian have collected, hence the menifestation of the 10ft Tsongkhapa, 7ft Lord Setrap and 7ft Vajrayogini in our new gompa.
    Liaison Paul have work tirelessly in traveling back and forward to aboard to oversee and check the iconogaraphy and details of statues to make sure it correct and perfect.
    Wait till all statues compleated and invited to our new gompa, in that time everyone will be blessed even tho they just walk in to our new gompa..

  25. Peter on Jul 9, 2010 at 1:09 am

    Terima Kasih Rinpoche!
    Big Statues, Big Gompa, Big Hearts, Big Sacrifices, Big Causes, Big Care, Big Hopes, Big Dreams, Big Aspirations, Big Kechara….
    BIG KWPC…
    And they say, ‘Size don’t matter’…uh huh…
    Dare to dream the Kechara Dream…
    Wonderful indeed when the new Gompa opens…
    A field of merit and blessing for all who encounter Kechara
    A haven of hope for the homeless and oppressed
    A shelter of love and care for animals
    A place of solace for the troubled of hearts
    An opportunity for creating the right and Dharmic causes
    A Pure Land, Kechara on Earth
    The Gift of Dharma excels all other gifts…Sadhu!

  26. May Ong on Jul 9, 2010 at 2:48 am

    The bigger the statue the more merit you collect. That is the reason why we need huge statues to grace the land they are on. It is said that gazing upon a holy statue of a Buddha will plant dharma seeds in the minds to be opened in the future. Making prostrations to huge statues can increase the collection of merits for healthier and stronger body. Many holy objects like mantra, protector string, wealth vase, photos and personal objects can be used to fill inside these statues.
    A Chinese monk named Hai Tong initiated a project to carve a Maitreya Buddha statue overlooking three rivers to protect the simple people living near these waters from long-sufferings.

  27. Shirley Tan on Jul 9, 2010 at 6:58 am

    I am just waiting with so much anticipation and excitement. A 5 feet Vajrayogini!!! OMG, that is like a dream come true! A 10 feet Tsongkhapa! 7 feet Setrap too! I am already feeling the great bliss!
    A few nights ago I had the priviledge to be invited to the Ladrang for dinner and to view the plans of the new Gompa. Datuk May, our Kechara House’s President, took the time to explain the plans to us with JP Thong, the Head of Tsem Ladrang.
    I was just blown away by the details and care they have put into designing this new Gompa. I dare say that Kechara is the first Buddhist organization of its kind. We are certainly doing things very differently in order to benefit as many people as possible.
    No one will be able to miss the new Gompa when it is completed. It will definitely shine into all the ten directions. I can’t wait!

  28. Judy on Jul 9, 2010 at 11:36 am

    The pictures are good to show us ‘behind the scene’ making of the statues. I am not sure if anyone would be as curious as me wanting to know what materials made up the statues, the processes they go through and the length of time required to finish each statue. Then we will be able to appreciate the labor of love by these people putting these together.
    Can’t wait to see the statues in our new Gompa – it has to be magnificient! The general Malaysian public liked to admire statues, and seek blessings from them, as such, our new Gompa will attract more people from this region to find out for themselves more about our lineage and Buddhism.

  29. henry ooi on Jul 9, 2010 at 3:27 pm

    As I write this, renovation work is being carried out at Kechara new gompa premises. The present gompa at KH1 is getting overcrowded each time there is a dharma activity hence the need to have a new gompa to sit some 700 odd people.
    These three majestic images of Long Life Form Lama Tsongkhapa, Vajrayogini and Dharmapala Setrap will be invited, when ready, with grandeur and splendor. Look out for the opening date.
    As what Yokefui wrote, our first fund raising Dinner and Auction in aid of Kechara is just around the corner. If you have not purchased your ticket to this fun and entertaining event, please call Ms Cheri at telephone number 03 78800189. Book early for a better seat!
    The event will start at 5PM with all depts. of Kechara having booths at Sunway Ballroom foyer. The first 200 diners who are not Kechara members will receive a bag of goodies.
    You may view those items up for silent and open bidding including the offering by Rinpoche of a 4’ Lama Tsongkhapa + 3’ Lord Dzambala + a rare and old Tara thangka; a 12” White Tara bedecked in jewelry + a Wealth Vase beautifully decorated with crystals and many more.

  30. Irene Lim on Jul 9, 2010 at 7:04 pm

    How awesome and inspirational these 3 images of Je Tsongkhapa, Vajrayogini and Setrap are!!! They are more than life sizes – so magnificient. I cannot wait for these images to be in our new Gompa at Kechara House. They will bring tremendous blessing to whoever see them, pray, do offering, or recite their mantra. They will bring wisdom, peace, harmony and stability to the area and country. There will be increase in spiritual growth as well as material growth.
    Rinpoche is extremely careful in the detail of the iconography when constructing these enlightened images. Iconography must be accurate and precise according to the scriptures as these images will create faith and bring tremendous amount of blessing.

  31. ng.yew seng on Jul 9, 2010 at 7:23 pm

    One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how beautiful the statues in Kechara House are. From the statues in Kechara House prayer hall to the Kechara Paradise outlets, they are mesmerizingly beautiful and ichnographically correct. So much so , that I could not resist to invite a Shakyamuni Buddha statue to start off my own alter and my practice. Little did I know the amount of work the Kehara Discovery department has to do to bring in the Buddha statues. Not forgetting to mention the amazing pendants and the various dharma items which continues bring blessings to anyone who owns them. Thank you KD !

  32. fang on Jul 9, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    Thank you for sharing the photos on the process and progress of the Lama Tsongkhapa , Vajrayogini and Setrap statues, Rinpoche! They are amazingly gorgeous… I especially love looking at the facial expression of Lama Tsongkhapa in the photo. He seems so very peaceful, approachable and strangely ‘parental’. It shouldn’t be too long now till the statues arrive for the opening of the new Gompa in Sunwaymas. My room in KMP being immediately behind one of the shop lots which is to be part of the new Gompa, I cannot help peeping in through the windows occasionally to see how things are going over there. Counting down the days till the arrival or the three majestic statues!
    ps – thanks Paul for doing such a wonderful job over-looking the making of the statues!

  33. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 9, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    Kechara House is gearing up for expansion and due to the many new people who have started joining Kechara the current Gompa cannot cater for so many people coming for talks or pujas simultaneously. The pictures here show the statues that are being made for our new gompa. The new ‘Je Tse Zinma’ is so beautiful and it is the long life form of Lama Tsongkhapa. As humans we have two major obstacles that can stop us from practicing the holy dharma 1) shortness of life 2) ignorance
    If we have a short life there wouldn’t be much time for us to practice the dharma and we cannot reach to any kind of spiritual maturity. From the deepest ignorance we can develop wrong views about the Dharma and not want to practice them at all, this is another hindrance to receiving the dharma, hence no matter how eloquent the speaker or high the teacher is if we hold on to our wrong views there will be no way the teacher or lama can get through to the listener.
    Je Tse Zinma counters both of this obstacles by bestowing long life through doing the practice and since the main aspect of Lama Tsongkhapa is wisdom, the practice will help us gain the wisdom to overcome our ignorance.

  34. ckliew-kc on Jul 9, 2010 at 10:12 pm

    10 ft Long Life Tsongkapa, 7 ft Vajrayogini and 7 ft Setrap statues will be in the new gompa very very soon. Everyone that visit the Kechara new Gompa will be able to see this big magnificent statues and be blessed. I think the bigger the statues the better because ordinary people with no empowerment rely upon Budhhas statues to seek comfort. Thats how most people get involve in practising Dharma. Buddha statues represent the energy and road map to enlightenment , simply seeing it will plant the seeds in to our mind for eons to come to prepare our close mind to achieve DHARMIC BLISS.
    I heard the stories goes that the master craftman of this statues reside in a very secluded area and for Paul to get there is not easy at all. It takes him lots of hardwork and sweat and patience to get the statues completed. To create a iconography correct statues is never an easy task and it take a very long time. But in the end once these 3 statues are place in Kechara new gompa every hardwork done by Kechara liaisons and Paul especially will be absolutely delighted.
    When that day arrives i think even the Buddhas , Boddhisattvas , Yidams and all other enlightened beings will be pleased !

  35. Justin Ripley on Jul 9, 2010 at 11:43 pm

    They are just amazing, they will be soo powerful when they are invited back home to Kechara’s gompa in renovation. Statues have a habit of growing when our motivation is correct, Rinpoche has said this before in the past.
    The pictures posted just now are a reflection of this fact of life. Rinpoche has also said before that having a Tsongkhapa statue in your house / environment you will never go hungry, there will be peace and calm. I can feel it with this new Tsongkhapa for our gompa, Paul has done a great job yet again. It will be a most memorable day when Tsongkhapa is enthroned in the larger KH. I don’t know but I am happy for us all right now that we are moving towards our shared vision for kechara world peace center.

  36. Justin Cheah on Jul 10, 2010 at 3:10 am

    Its incredible that only a few years back when i first joined Kechara, we just had KH2 opening across the streets, and then other departments got their own buildings and now Kechara House is expanding again. This time to a new Gompa to accomodate more and more growing members! With new BIG BIG statues to attract even more!
    Kudos to Paul for his hardwork and he again impressed me with this time with him single handedly overseeing the workings of these statues. I can assure everyone here this is not an easy job and given that all the hand mudras and shape have to be very precise. I can’t wait for the statues to reach into our Gompa!

  37. chia on Jul 10, 2010 at 3:22 am

    Just look at the molding of the statue sculpture at the picture itself. You can see how amazing this statue will look like. I like all 3 statues, 10ft Tsongkhapa statue, 7 ft Vajrayogini and 7 ft protector Setrap statue. I can’t wait all 3 statues ready when new gompa is up. Liaisons Paul has work hard and put so many effects to make his trip again and again to the factory to correcting the mold, make sure statue to look prefect. Paul had committed himself to make Kechara discovery grow so much. Kechara Discovery also produce beautiful Buddha pendent for people to wear. All the pendants are available at the outlet. You can find more information on (http://www.kechara.com/discovery/ ).

  38. Allan Lee 李栢荣 on Jul 10, 2010 at 10:49 pm

    When Paul, Liaison and Head of Kechara Discovery shows me the pictures of the giant Vajrayogini’s making in progress, I was asking him, “How tall is that Paul?” He just replied smiling 7 feet. My eyes went popping and right away I knew it was for our new Gompa. Then he continued with pictures of Lama Tsongkhapa and Setrap and I do believed I didn’t blink at all. I was intrigued with the craftsmanship of the statues. It is so well defined and so full of details. Paul had done a great job getting this job supervised and he had been so busy with so many works, yet is in China for a week to make sure that everything is going smoothly.
    After seeing the pictures, I am even more excited to wait for the actual result once the statues and shipped in for our awaiting Gompa.
    Also, here a big salute to Paul for making sure we will get the best result for the statues. Thank you Paul :)

  39. Mimi Chua on Jul 22, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    Thank you for reblogging. The new layout of the blog makes the search so much easier. Like many other similar commentary, I strongly believe the Penang study group is looking forward to the new Gompa.

  40. Jeff Yeap on Aug 23, 2010 at 1:35 am

    What a marvellous progress Kechara House has achieved to date. Am very thankful to be introduce to this great organization while I’s in KL 4 years ago and that has make a great influence in my life that makes me a better person and understand the true meaning of beautiful life. With great blessing from Lord Setrap Chen, i look forward to sharing with all our friends in need out there the secrets of KECHARA!
    Looking forward to the opening of the new Gompa, cheers!

  41. Patsy on Aug 23, 2010 at 5:46 pm

    Our new gompa will have a 10 ft Long Life Tsongkapa, 7 ft Vajrayogini and 7 ft Setrap statues! How fortunate for those who visit Kechara new Gompa to be able to see this big magnificent statues and be blessed. Paul of Kechara Discovery has worked so hard to ensure that the iconography of the statues are correct and the finishing results detailed and well defined.

    I just cant wait for the opening of Kechara new gompa!

  42. Anila on Sep 8, 2010 at 5:21 pm

    Our new Gompa comprising of 4 sahoplots will be ready soon after renovation. Three main big statues will be the main object of reverence in our new Gompa. The biggest size statue will be a 10 feet Tsongkapa then will be a 7 feet Setrap and a 7 feet Vajrayogini. Our new Gompa when finished and decorated will be very different from other centres or temples. The reason for Tsongkapa to be in the centre is that he is our centre’s Idam. Setrap is Kechara House Protector and Kechara House is the abode of Vajrayogini. We have lots of supporters for Lord Setrap as a lot of people can testify how Setrap has help them solve their problems. It is a popular practice for people who come to Kechara House.

  43. Uncle Eddie on Oct 8, 2010 at 4:18 pm

    As had been said in some of our Dharma teachings, “The most powerful merit one can accumulate,and accumulate easily, is in relations to Holy objects of the Buddha. By making statues of a Buddha, one accumulates infinite inconceivable merits that immediately becomes a cause of Enlightenment. Every merit accumulated by making statues and by making offerings to the statues immediately become the cause of Enlightenment”. Therefore the grand ten feet Tsongkhapa statue in long life form, and the 7 feet Setrap and Vajra Yogini statues for our new Kechara Gompa will be ” beautiful representations ” of enlightenment coming into our Kechara House very soon. Our whole Kechara House Organisation, together with all its followers, members and friends will be so greatly blessed. Making offerings to the statues will, it is said, receive equal benefits as if you are making offerings to the real devine being in accordance to our Lord Buddha’s golden words – “There is not one single difference between making offerings to me now and in the the future, with Devotion, makings offerings to my reflections the merit is equal and the result is equal”. HAPPY DAYS AHEAD FOR KECHARA ORGANISTION!

    This is how all the hard work in progress and finally it has arrived in the new Gompa and getting transformed for the new gompa opening on 27 Nov 2010.

  46. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jul 15, 2012 at 12:33 am

    It is a very special feeling to see these work-in-progress pictures. It is something like reading through old albums.

    Time passes us by quickly. We have always been in never-ending rush for something, from dawn to dusk. And usually, we do not do much for the development of our spiritual path.

    With the hardwork of all those involved in this project, I have the great merits to see these three buddhas in the Gompa. Without the guidance of Rinpoche and the perseverance of all those involved, the Gompa will not be possible, these three Buddha statues will not be possible.

    Thank you to Gompa committee for make all these so beautiful for the many of us.

    Abinav Thakuri: Dear Rinpoche, I wanted to post here to thank you for all of your teachings! They have helped me tremendously! :) I have been learning from the blog and video teachings for some time now and the lessons have changed my life. Especially, death meditation. I have been following your teaching on death meditation and have been doing it for more than 8 months now. I didn’t feel anything at first, but now I feel like i can accept negative things that happen in life in a totally positive way! I also want to do any good I can now! Instead of just waiting. I used to be lazy and had negative thoughts about life all the time before. But now it’s gone! :) I also feel that death meditation can be a good counter to depression. Thank you so much Rinpoche! :)

    I use think people have to be this way or that way and according to my views, but I realize, they have to be their way and we accept them. Sometimes they can improve the way they think and operate as we all need to ‘upgrade’, but the way to do it is by example, patience and explaining kindly. Tsem Rinpoche

    Tsem Rinpoche: Louise of Kechara Discovery Dept of Kechara really is coming out with beautifully newly designed Buddha pendants. You would be amazed how incredible artistic yet sacred they are. You have to take look. I was amazed and they make such beautiful pieces to wear around any neck.

    Tsem Rinpoche: There are just people when they say they will do it, they just get it done. You need not remind them or ask them as they update back. Those types of people are a treasure to work with. They make life and work so much easier along with the normal challenges we have to tolerate.

    Dear master rinpoche

    Firstly i would like to express my gratitude to you for your existence and sharing of knowledge to those like us. I have yet physically there to listen to your dharma only via youtube.

    I have first come to know about you 2 years ago by recommendation of a friend to your youtube vid. Your humour and examples using the model of the current society explains the teaching which easily understandable by us.

    Today I have watched your 3 hrs youtube video on tendencies and I have this unexplained feeling that urge me to write to you. I been wanting to write to you ever since I know about you but I do not have the courage or reason to write since I always feel helpless and all sort of depressive thoughts flooding through my mind and I don’t know what others will response to my disability. I learned about your kechara and shop in the mall and I have always wanted to go and take a look and seek guidance but I always hold back. There is one time I pass by your shop in Sunway pyramid mall but too afraid to go in. I wandered outside for very long time and at the end I left.

    I have always wanted to throw away everything and find myself such as going for a retreat and learn dharma but there are always things that pulled me back like parents objection, fear and criticism.

    I battled depression for the past ten years and I never know the reason why. I seek therapy and medication but none seems to work and I can only find peace in the mantra and I want to know more abt buddha teaching. Nothing else seems ‘right’ to me except to know more about living. My mom always wanted me to find someone to get married and have kids. But deep inside me I know there are something else which I can hardly explain.

    I had to remove a tumour from my body, battling depression, infected with dengue and getting sick all the time. All these seems like a sign for me to do something about my life.

    I made a decision to leave my stable job in singapore to come back to malaysia to start my life.

    Please master rinpoche I need your assistance and guidance to pull me out from the darkness that I been through.
    Please enlighten me what should I do?

    What a fantastic massage. Wish they had that here. I like deep tissue massage very much. This type of deep tissue massage is good. I like every part of this except the stomach part, otherwise, this one really is good for the body/muscles and release a lot of toxins. Fantastic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLGSTKGLgAU I would love to offer this massage to some in our group for healing …would be good for their bodies and health. I love taking care of our people.

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

Uncle Lai for years now without a miss comes in once a week to clean the altar of the ladrang. To clean the sacred spots where holy images reside is considered good purification of karmas.

Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche said to me a few years back that in order to practice or teach dharma these days, it's like being a white crow among the black. That means we will stand out and look unusual. But no matter what we must persevere. I miss this great teacher so much since his passing. He was gentle, scholarly, erudite, accomplished in sutra and tantra and had a very loving demeanor. He treated everyone equally and his vows of a monk were spotless. He was like a bright sun in the night sky. Even the first time I met him, he impacted me very strongly. I have received many teachings from him. He was a student of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H. H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I brought 60 students with me from various countries to have audience with Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche the last time I had a chance to gaze upon his golden face. His perfect incarnation has returned. May he manifest in this incarnation as the previous. Tsem Rinpoche
