Everyone was a kid once so see these interesting kiddie pics of the people who work closely with me….who can you recognize????

A few years back, when Kechara started to grow exponentially, I needed proper management from skilled and or dedicated individuals to get the organization to keep running smoothly. I decided to adopt the monastic organizational structure, as used in Gaden Monastery, to manage the expansion. In 2006, the Liaison Council was introduced into Kechara organization. 6 years later, Kechara now has 18 liaisons, all unique and capable individuals that carry out the necessary secular work for Kechara to continue benefiting others.

Kechara liaisons are very, very dedicated to their Dharma work… they work very hard to get things done, without any complaints or excuses. All 21 of them came into Kechara wanting to make a difference. They made the decision not to use their lives just to pursue a monthly pay cheque, but to instead benefit others… all through different means. I am very proud of Kechara’s 21 liaisons, and all the full-time staff and volunteers who support them.

I’ve blogged here the faces of the Liaisons then and now…everyone was a kid and they can grow up to be something beneficial to others…take a look..would you have recognized them as kids if I didn’t tell you who they were….Which one still looks similar to their kiddie pics and which ones really look different??? Let me know what you think? Who still resembles themselves as kids? Who do you think wins the cute kiddie pic??hehehe

She has raised funds for numerous charitable organisations and has led several pilgrimages to some of the world’s most sacred Buddhist sites.

Datuk May has lead a very privileged life. However, despite her material success, when she hit the age of 40 years old she felt a certain emptiness within. This lead her to read books and attended courses on adult experiential learning where she then realized her desire for spirituality in life. I first met Datuk May in 2007, when she followed a friend to attend a Dharma talk that was given one evening. From that moment forward, Datuk May dedicated her time, effort, and energy to Kechara for the benefit and happiness to all.

    All the photos are just so cute! I think the ones that still look like their kid photos would be Paul and Su Ming. The photos are just so pretty.

    Shows us how much we have changed since we were kids. With the wrong direction, we can be monsters of the society.

    I am so grateful that I have Dharma and Rinpoche in my life since young to guide me to the correct path. Even till now, when I am no longer the 5 year old little girl, I know that Rinpoche still cares for me just like how I first met Rinpoche. Thank you Rinpoche for always caring for all of us!

  12. Wan Wai Meng on Feb 28, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    These are excellent information and writeup about the various people who are heading Kechara what they have done before as RInpoche said many times before, many hands and many people with all kinds of skills and experiences combined can make things happen. And we do need many people to come together to build a lasting legacy like KWPC.

  13. Li Kim on Feb 14, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Looking at all of us then and now makes me laugh with such warmth. Thank you Rinpoche for posting this. We are all so engaged with one another as adults, it is simply wonderful to see all of us as children.

    Thanks Mom, for telling the whole world how much I grew la!!!!

  14. jennifer on Feb 12, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    It is very interesting to see how everyone has changed since they were little babies!!!

  16. Irene on Feb 10, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    “Birds of the same feather flock together” – whatever size, shape, colour, appearance and background we came together for one vision, one reason, one guru to make 1 Kechara grow and be beneficial to others. We must have made our prayers in our previous lives for this to happen and meet with 1 perfect Guru to make our lives meaningful. Thank you my dear Rinpoche.

  17. Sharon Saw on Feb 10, 2012 at 6:44 pm

    Gosh… aren’t these photos the perfect reminder for impermanence! :D Thank you for sharing these photos… i must say it’s been an amazing experience to work with all the liaisons – everyone comes from such vastly different backgrounds yet we are all united in the common pursuit of spiritual progress and to bring Tsem Rinpoche’s vision to fruition! Somehow our karma brings us here so we shall have to work hard to make sure our collective karma doesn’t exhaust… as Rinpoche said today: “Though we may have the collective karma to get something, physically if we do nothing much and watch our lives waste by comfortably, then the open window could close on us. Nothing is static. Nothing stays, so we have to always be ‘aggressive’, consistent and pro-active.”

  18. mayy on Feb 10, 2012 at 4:04 pm

    Hehehe….most of them looks different in their own ways. As one matured over the years few of the liaisons featured looks so different. Few till todate does look almost the same.

    I like Jamie’s way of smiling which still resembles her till now…haha.

    Beng Kooi looks soooooooo different from her young age photo!

    Dato Ruby, Jean Ai and Su Ming …so cute! :)

    Most recognisable were Pastor Susan, Pastor Yek Yee, Wan, Sharon, Irene and Datuk May.

  19. henry ooi on Feb 10, 2012 at 3:22 pm

    Beautiful and memories-filled pictures of yesteryear. Who else could have thought of such a posting than Rinpoche? Thank you, Rinpoche, for showing us how we looked like then.

    Irene looks pretty in her pretty dress.
    Su Ming was a pretty child and now a pretty woman.
    Siong Woan looks pretty in her dress, wearing a hat.
    Dato Ruby’s picture as a child is sweet. Now she is a swan.
    Jean Ai – cute pic, her looks then resemble her now.

    Datuk May’s pic of a child does not resemble her now. No, not at all.
    Yoke Fui on a bicycle? Her face shape did not change much.

    Pastor Yek Yee on the podium receiving trophy for 3rd placing? What happened?
    Sharon is cute with a hat (by the beach, I think). Her smile as a child is still there today.
    Li Kim in shorts, sporty. Not surprised. Look at her now.
    JP – sporty on trampoline? Where did that JP go to?

    Wan’s pic as a child resembles her current pic.
    Pastor Susan’s pic as a child resembles her now especially her mouth part, err, teeth.

    Paul’s pic in classroom is studious, no wonder.
    Han is school uniform, studious.
    Dr Lanse, did not look too happy, maybe forced by parents to become a doctor? All she wanted was to be free to find herself.

    Nicholas as a Western cowboy? Maybe previous life?
    Pastor Ngeow in cowboy outfit too? Fierce and pissed off look. Maybe parents forced him to be something else but he wants to be a pastor?

    Jamie in dress, cheeky look, still is.
    Beng Kooi, even as a child she still was not in a dress.
    David – could not see his lips so cannot tell the resemblance.

    Seng Piow’s skin colour is quite dark even as a child.

    I pick pastor Susan’s pic as the closest resemblance.

    I find Beng Kooi’s pic as the cutest because then and now are sooooo different.

  20. joey wong on Feb 10, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    omg susan used to be cute, pretty and sweet before….

  21. Datuk May on Feb 10, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    Looking at LiKim’s small girl photo made me remember what a small girl she was. Everything I bought for her to wear was special small size. Then she grew up……and then……..hahaha, she just grew!

  22. DR on Feb 10, 2012 at 12:01 pm

    We were such cute babies and toddlers! Cute ‘pao paos’! And then we grew up and ………. Hahaha!

    I think the cutest baby award goes to our dear Beng Kooi!

  23. wahying on Feb 10, 2012 at 10:47 am

    I think Irene, Yoke Fui(her smile), Wan, Pastor Susan (especially her eyes) and Jamie still resembles themselves as kids. And Pastor Ngeow and Dr Lanse look serious since young. Jean Ai and Su Ming cute, Dato Ruby such a little beauty, David was eating ice cream hehe. Thank you all liaisons for putting your lives in benefiting people.

  24. Su An on Feb 9, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    Great article on the career history of these incredible people, showing how Kechara and Dharma was the turning point of their lives and how they are still going and growing strong with Kechara. The skills, knowledge and experienced gained before Kechara are effectively put to use to genuinely help others with no profit motive. They have made Kechara their “final career destination” and this speaks volumes. Congratulations!

  25. patsy on Feb 9, 2012 at 4:31 pm

    Cute! Cute! They all look cute especially Jean Ai, Su Ming and Dato Ruby but the cutest is Beng Kooi.

    Pastor Susan, Wan and Sharon still have the same resemblance.

    Now all of them are grown up and doing dharma work to benefit others!.How wonderful!

    Thank you for this post, Rinpoche!

  26. abby on Feb 9, 2012 at 3:11 pm

    I think Wan and Datuk May still resemble themselves as kids. Especially the way Datuk May smiles, still remain the same.
    Pastor Susan and Beng Kooi looks super cute and sweet!
    Li Kim looks cheerful and graceful, hehehe.
    And Im shocked that Pastor Yek Yee was a sporty girl! Pastor Ngeow looks cuter now. LOL.

  27. lucy yap on Feb 9, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    Very cute photos!Wan and Pastor Susan’s photos bear some resemblance.Su Ming and Datuk Ruby very,very cute!It’s amazing these young kids grew up to be wonderful adults who practice Dharma to benefit others.

  28. Thierry Janssens on Feb 9, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    Funny how everyone looks similar, yet different.
    Age takes a toll on physical appearances, but there is either a smile or a way in the eyes that makes the children recognizable.
    It is like the personality is already there as a young child. Yes, the traits of character must come from before birth, how otherwise… how?

    Pastor Ngeow with hair as a child has this air like he is about to talk about the 4 Noble Truths… I’ts funny to see!

    Wow… JP’s outfit as a kid is priceless! Great style, and totally fit for playground… This is not in Malaysia right? Who wears pull-overs for playground activity in Malaysia…

    Thank you for posting this Rinpoche

  29. tenzin llhamo on Feb 9, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    LOL…They all look so cute when they were young! Pastor Susan and Paul looks almost the same. The rest would have been a bit difficult to guess at first glance. The cutest in their kid photo would be Dato Ruby, Jean Ai and Su Ming.

  30. lewkwanleng on Feb 9, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    Wow! Young photos revealed!! Thank you for all for working so hard for other!

    《掌中解脱》的第二十天有提到,如想成佛,一定要以菩提心作为持修中心。仅有菩提心是不够的,必定要学习菩萨行。也就是说必须双修福德与智慧这两种资粮。而布施波罗蜜是其中一个重要的持修。

    尊贵的仁波切就有具备和身体力行的做到了布施波罗蜜。仁波切不只是传授佛法予亲近的弟子们,而且是世界各地。只要打开电脑或手机,有网络互联的地方,就可以阅读仁波切的博客。

    除了法施,尊贵的仁波切也时常布施予出家人或僧团(包括了甘丹寺)。除此以外,在仁波切的启发下,克切拉切香积厨的成立是不以宗教、种族或文化区分的帮助任何一个有需要的人。除了这些,还有更多更多仁波切所做的善事不能在此一一说出。

    仁波切所做的一切,其实是一个提示给我们。我们要活的简单,想要拥有的东西越少就越好。因为当死亡来临时,我们是带不走任何世俗的东西。

    感谢仁波切的分享。祈愿仁波切法体安康,常转法轮。_/\\_

    Buddhism is truly an omniscient religion, where it can be applied by people of various level of understanding and acceptance. If Buddhism is being practiced accordingly, practitioners will benefit no matter which level one dwells in. At the minimum level, which Dr Alexander Berzin had graciously called it Dharma-lite, one can improve the condition of this life even though one has little or no understanding of Buddhist teachings especially on rebirth. Of course, Dharma-lite cannot represent the true essence of Buddhism because without the understanding or acceptance of rebirth, one will have no belief on the existence of the six realms, hence, unable to apprehend the concept of mind that transcend time. If one has no belief in rebirth, one may not be motivated to be liberated, consequently severely crippled the drive to be a Boddhisattva.

    On the other hand, we are really fortunate and I am very thankful that Rinpoche had always emphasizes and teaches us the “Real Thing”. Rinpoche had given profound teachings on Karma, and our Mind on Youtube since many years ago. As a result we are not unfamiliar with the “Real Thing” and able to appreciate the importance of rebirth, karma and the working of our mind. Some of Rinpoche’s teaching on Karma and Mind e.g.

    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/discovering-yourself-a-teaching-on-karma-mindstream.html

    Thank You very much, Rinpoche, for sharing this article for our learning.

    Looking through the photos and reading the caption underneath each photo are sheer joy because we get to witness Rinpoche’s loving kindness and generosity towards the Lamas and Sanghas in India. All the gift items are both practical and meaningful; for example: the supplements to the elderly and juniors, and the handphones to the secretariat and driver, and the English books and sutra for the community, as well as children book for the young monks. I hope more of us will be inspired to contribute to the Sangha community.

    Thank You very much, Rinpoche, for sharing these wonderful photos. They are very inspiring.

    Since very young, I’ve never accepted what ordinary life had to offer. I have never seen any true or deep lasting purpose in it. I would see my parents and their peers and always hoped my life will not turn out like theirs which is very banal. I am not criticizing them at all, but it was not for me. I was a always a seeker. I always find books on spirituality, Buddhism, metaphysics, paranormal, yogis, Tibet, Hindu masters, bigfoot, aliens and the likes. I always knew I would cross the big ocean and live far from where I grew up. I just knew. I dreamed of mountains, meeting great masters of tantra & studying with them & then living in mastering of spiritual awakening. I use to often meditate on Avalokitesvara & Manjushri. I can still remember that I did not want an ordinary life. Fear of death use to visit me often. I would meditate on the fragility of life & how it would end and how best was to use my life. I concluded it would be like the Mahasiddhas of the past. To live and practice like the great Mahasiddhas of the past would be the best way to use my life and spend my time. This yearning in me was very strong. I was going to do this or die trying I use to think. Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank You Mr Tan for sharing something about yourself with all of us.

    The opening of this article resonates with what I encountered. After learning a little bit about dharma, I feel less compelled to hold on to my self-cherishing image, which had developed and evolved over time into this humongous inflated egoistic monster. It is as if that I started to shred the attachment to the monster, or at least attempted to. As a result, I let go of what I perceived as the best perceived image for myself and just act the way I would like to (of course as appropriately to the occasion as possible). I see this change in myself as a positive one. It is as if I have returned to the younger me, when I was carefree, but with dharma knowledge in my system. How wonderful.

    Thank You Rinpoche, and Mr Tan for this blog article. I will keep up my practice based on His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche’s teaching.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this quote. This is a very good reminder to me especially, who always fear and lazy to face the difficulty and think of other people’s perception on me.

    I agree that we should have a different mindset that our action is to inspire others and not stressing it on ‘me’.

    Thank you again for always encourage and motivate us to do better.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article as it provides a very good definition of karma.

    Karma is not a punishment but an action that will bring positive and negative result based on our intention. By understanding this we will be more mindful with our every thought, speech and action.

    The ‘Law of change’ again reminded me to always remember that if we don’t want to go through a certain condition then we must learn and change it. It is until we learn that we will not need to experience it again.

    Thank you again for sharing this article.

What Am I Writing Now


 

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

Although he only became celebrated following his death, Paul Gaugin was regarded as an influential figure to many of modernism's biggest names, including Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. Gauguin painted this piece during his first trip to Tahiti, where he had hoped to create "primitive" art. He then found a fondness for Tahitian women, painting many pictures of them. This particular painting, which had been on loan to the Kunstmuseum in Basel, was privately sold for a whopping $300 million in February last year.

Happy discovery of the day: Khedrup Je was vegetarian! ---- "In Khedrup Je's commentary on The Three Vows, it is said that, on the whole, only the Bodhisattvas are required to abstain from meat. Therefore, all who have taken the vow of bodhichitta, whether they be monks, nuns, or lay people, must abstain from meat. For if Bodhisattvas, who have thus become an object of praise, eat meat, a strong desire for the taste of it will grow in them. As a result, their compassion will wane. Therefore the fully ordained, the shramaneras, kings, ministers, leaders, and lay people who practice the Mahayana should refrain from eating meat." (This was found and posted by Pastor Jean Ai)

Mr. Jamyang Norbu is a powerful Tibetan writer and blogger. He is one of the few people who tell the truth about the Tibetan Leadership and what happens within the Tibetan communities. It is a fact that if you disagree with Tibetan Leadership in Dharamsala on any issue, they get you ostracized and then perhaps the crowd against you. That could be dangerous. This is not pleasant but true. Recently with the Tibetan in exiled 'election' of the new Prime Minister, they did everything they can to get rid of Lukar Jam who wants corruption to end in Tibetan leadership and unite Tibetans regardless of their spiritual orientation. Indeed a rare breed. This is a excellent article to read..Again I am not interested in politics but this shows clearly how the CTA or Tibetan leadership accepts no opposition in their secular and religious decisons right or wrong..and how my choice of spirituality has brought me problems which should not happen in a real democracy. Since it's related I post here. So by all means take a look at how unethical Tibetan Leadership is through the eyes of a well known Tibetan writer: http://www.jamyangnorbu.com/blog/2015/11/13/election-by-divine-intervention/

Before the unethical ban against the spiritual practice of Dorje Shugden, all the teachers are friendly, they are in contact and support each other. There was much harmony and everyone was focused on bringing the Buddha dharma to many. They often met up with each other, or in communication and even attended eachother's events. The harmony was palpable, beneficial and everyone was united. You an see here how Lama Zopa Rinpoche comes to one of Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche's events in Nepal. How warmly they greet eachother and there is so much spirituality radiating from this blessed picture. Now because of this unethical ban against Shugden, these lamas are not allowed to meet although they have the same root guru. Because of the unethical ban against Dorje Shugden the whole Tibetan Buddhist world is divided. Those who wish to practice Dorje Shugden are not allowed to participate or be friends with those who do not practice Dorje Shugden. What is incredible is why are Tibetan Buddhists divided by religion? Tsem Rinpoche
