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

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! 😀 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!

    I get shock with this articles about cannibalism. This James Jameson only think about own benefit (fascination on cannibalism and want experience in firsthand )and sacrifice a 10year old girl.
    I can realize that how important of dharma for us to be compassion and benefit to every sentient beings.Jameson’s action is really created a bad karma to himself.This also can be applied to kill animals and serve it as our foods. We shall change our daily meals to vege meals.
    Thanks Rimpoche for sharing this article which can inspire many people to become vegetarian.(myself not vegetarian yet but I’m eating much less meat compared with previous time).

    With folded hands,
    Jason

    This is the first time I come across a place called Prince Edward Island. With a populace of less than 200,000 people, it is a big deal to have such huge and beautiful Buddhist Retreat Centre built for the people there. I am even more impressed that so many people registered for the open day of the Retreat Centre. It is a clear sign that Buddhism is gaining popularity in the west. Rejoice for the people in Prince Edward Island. I hope that more people in Malaysia can come to appreciate Buddhsim and learn to make connections with the Buddha through the facilities in Kechara Forest Retreat.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this post.
    很伤心是竟然修持多杰雄登被排斥与骚扰。试想一想如果你不是雄登修持者而您、家人、同修现有的宗教大师出禁令说现有修持法是邪靈,会威脋大师的性命。您会去了解事情的来胧去脈或只一一跟随!

    更伤心的是竟然有些限随达赖尊者,支持雄登禁令只是表面而已!那只是為了某种名誉或金錢利益。就只因跟随达赖喇嘛尊者,從中容易筹集资金。这样做不是更加破坏与上师之间三昧耶吗?

    一位金剛弟子不会做出以下:
    1. 違反上师依止心
    2. 破坏传承,自造与推翻所有上师的灌顶,上师传授的口传等等
    3. 分上师的高低级,由因他只是一位格西就离开或很高级的上师就跟從
    4. 破坏弟子与上师三昧耶

    我们都相信达赖喇嘛尊者不是也不会做出一上动作!

    我们真诚希望马上解除这不该有的多杰雄登禁令!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing thing article. I agree that a lot of people mixed up secular and spiritual for each convenience.

    Should a person choose a spiritual path then he or she should act in accordance to it. The ban and segregation in Tibet to those people who practice Dorje Shugden is not right. Every human has religious freedom and choice of practice. Dorje Shugden practitioners will continue their practice because it is given by their Guru. In Tibetan Buddhism it is very important not to break the samaya with Guru. So for those who do not agree with it then it is fine but they cannot harm the Shugden practitioners and even critised or discriminate them. I hope the ban on Shugden will be lifted soon and stop the sufferings of the practitioners.

    Every chapter of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche’s life is an inspiration to mundane being like us. He grew up separated from biological parents, suffered in the hands of abusive parents, and faced endless obstacles for wanting to be learn and spread dharma; yet, His Eminence never sway from His purpose in life. He could have led a life of celebrity in Hollywood since His Eminence was tall, dark and handsome. He could have ran when the poor living condition in Zong Ladrang was unbearable; sleeping in the cow shred with leaky roof and full of mosquitoes. He could have left when there was no sponsors to send money and support His monthly sundry expenses, and He had to rely on only of Tsampa (barley flour) mixed with tea for all His meals. But He stayed, and taught Buddha Dharma without any resentment on the harshness life He encountered. He is always kind and loving, always find ways to benefit others, unconditionally. He is truly a living Buddha.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Valentina for this structured and neat compilation of the Biography of His Eminence. I hope many more people will now get to read about His Eminence.

    Our mind is important. What the mind thinks it becomes. Mr Rodrigues is right in pointing out that our mind in the root of manifestation of certain circumstance or event that we may term as being negative or positive. We can label this method as the Law of Attraction, which advocates positive thoughts attract circumstances which are of a like nature. Law of Attraction does help with uplifting us from negative perpetuation in the mundane world. But it lacks the ascendancy over the profound understanding of life and the way things work. As such, I am incline to believe that people who practice Law of Attraction heavily tend to negate the fact of Karma, because they cannot grasp the gist of Karma – it operates not just in this lifetime but over many, many lifetimes, past and future. We must take the responsibility of our previous actions and make the changes to correct them. In my humble opinion, Law of Attraction (positive thinking) is just about one of the means to the end.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Herman Rodrigues for this interesting article that allow me to ponder deeper on Law of Attraction.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing how to make people like us immediately article.

    After finish reading this article,i found that a lot of people who more popular around me containing above of conditions . It was a lot have to learned from people get along.
    I am more introverted, so i am not much friends along, and Rinpoche emphasis and methods above, they are the good way for me to learned.
    Since i meet Rinpoche and especially watch Rinpoche dharma talk ” Nothing Changes,Everything Changes ” DVD, i start study and trying to improve from trouble and people get along what i am facing everyday instead of blaming always.
    Among learning, i realise that get along with others, if i always think on side of “me” to manage the conflict, i well get negative results finally. But , if i always thinking on the side of others, i will have a consensus and learned much from it. With heart of compassion, Diligently, honesty, care, help each others also are the keys to improve realtionship each others and can acheive win win results.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    Thank you for sharing your experience in Tai Chi and how it relates to your spiritual practice. I go agree that it both gel as Tai Chi is also a practice of our mind.

    The movement seems easy but require lots of focus and concentration. Hence it is a practice of our mind towards our body movement and balances.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    There are some methods which I feel iare applicable and some are not. To me various people have different expectation of a relationship be it family , colleague, friends, clients, customers and etc. Each want have different expectation and needs when we talked to them. it is how we label them.

    I believe most importantly we should always have good motivation, honest and sincere when talking to anybody. Then in turns would build a good impression.

    The courage Neerja shown is spontaneous without a sign of hesitation which obviously arise from compassion and selflessness. She is an inspiration, to say the least. Neerja showed us our life is worthless when we focus solely on ourselves.

    Our life is insignificant as compared to many others we have responsibilities to take care and guard. When we know more, we are in the position to help, guide and protect just like a senior to junior, a mother to her child. This kind of action reflects the level of our maturity and care.

    I wish many will be inspired by Neerja and allow our similar qualities to shine for the benefit of others.

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

Such a wondrous place to be with such a view that heals the soul. Why live in a city where it is unnatural and polluted. Everyday in the city is a day away from where we belong. We belong among the greens, forest, mountains and clean air. We belong in such a place and doing our retreats, sadhanas and mantras to find the ultimate place of belonging and peace....the ultimate place is within us with a developed spiritual mind. Hard to achieve among distractions in the city.

When we see others who behave not according to our expectations and just to ‘get them back’ we throw all caution to the wind and we get angry, retaliate, fight back, scream, yell and then quit, it shows our mind. Everything is about our own mind. That is not to say they are not at fault. But if we want the world to act perfectly in our presence and then we don’t get angry, that is SO INCREDIBLE IDEALISTIC AND WE ARE DOOMED FROM THE START in anything we do. We have to keep our equilibrium always. Remember our vows, promises and our own state of mind. Be kind to ourselves and not let the other person throw us off because we have to be in control of our own minds. Remember, our mind and how it reacts is the key.--- H.E Tsem Rinpoche
