    The creativity really shines through in this stunning Vajrayogini statue. Already beautiful when she first arrived from India, Kechara Saraswati Arts have really outdone themselves this time.
    I know that it has taken them hours upon hours to glue on each little crystal by hand and it is all colour coordinated to match her sacred iconography. What a perfect little statue to invite home to a small apartment, an office or even to plant seeds of her tantra for your children.
    She’s modern yet traditional. Outlandish yet classic. I am head over heels in love and infatuated by her. I cannot wait to bring her home.
    Stupendous, marvelous, incredibly neat!

    That’s right Kechara Saraswati Arts (KSA) is the first authentic Tibetan arts studio in South East Asia and consist many multi-talented people. They are spiritual people who genuinely wish to contribute towards Dharma through arts. They are the experts in Tibetan arts whether it be construction or restoration of statue, painting of Thangka, sewing of deities clothes, consecration, mantracising, jewellery making, adornments of deities and many others.
    Many people volunteer in KSA in whichever area they are capable of or have interest in. They accumulate alot of merits and benefits from volunteering. Volunteering service is an offering and benefit to oneself and others. For instance, when we adorn jewellery on deities, it actually means we are making offering to the deities so that we have the same gem-like enlightened qualities. When we do anything in relation to restoration or constructing of statues we are actually purifying alot of negativities and set us into achieving our highest goal. All activities in KSA are absolutely meaningful and fulfilling.

    Speechless for a moment! So BEAUTIFUL! Love it! Truly one of a kind. Kechara Saraswati Arts (http://www.kechara.com/arts/) did a very GOOD job. Amazed with what the staff and volunteers can do and it all comes from their heart, love and patience. Not only this but so many other things that they can do such as creating statues from clay (http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/2010/07/update-on-clay-statue.html), painting, sewing, beading and many more. This department also have classes for kids and adults on weekends to guide, teach and bring the talented artist hidden in them.
    Last year, I had KSA paint my Vajrayogini’s body painted red, skulls in white and red, even the Katvanga’s faces were colored. I LOVE it very much so the next thing I need to do now is to adorn jewels just like the picture above. Fantastic!

  4. Choi Kim Yok on Jul 10, 2010 at 1:08 pm

    The statue looks beautiful. KSA workers/volunteers have painstakingly glued the crystals onto the tiny statue transforming it into a very modern looking Vajra Yogini. This is one way of earning merits. In KSA there are so many ways of gaining merits. If one can’t paint Buddhas and sew thangkas, one can roll mantras and string pearls which doesn’t require artistic talent. All one needs is a steady pair of hands and a heart that wishes to benefit others. I volunteered for a short while in KSA at the beginning when I first entered Kechara House and I learned to roll mantras which I like to do very much. It has a calming effect on me and I stop thinking of negative things. I’d like to go back to rolling mantras after I retire later this year.

  5. Tyler Mihalson on Jul 10, 2010 at 1:54 pm

    I am so impressed by this artwork. KSA seems like a wonderful place for people to do Dharma in their own way. I feel very ambitious as I dedicate merit after doing sadhanas so that my dharma center can benefit people as much as Kechara House has benefited me and so many others. There are so many facets to Kechara and I think that is one of the MANY reasons it is such a powerful Dharma organization.
    Dear Rinpoche,
    You have personally inspired me so many times in so many ways… I just know that you will bring so many beings to liberation as I am SURE you have done in the past. Please, continue to teach and spread the Dharma through all of the wonderful ways you can! The world needs more KSAs, it needs more Kecharas and it needs more amazing lamas like you, Tsem Rinpoche!! Please continue to spread the Dharma!
    With so much gratitude and an inspired heart,
    Tyler

    Fantabulous! KSA is becoming more and more creative. A modern twist to traditional Buddha statues. I’m always amazed with beautiful statues, thangkas and buddhist iconography. It is very timely especially to have beautifully crafted and painted Buddha images to be available as tibetan buddhism is spreading very fast in this region now.
    I believe Buddha in whatever forms are becoming more and more beautiful so we the layperson can accept the teachings more easily. With the advancements of technology and the New Age we are going through, traditional images of Buddha will also improve in terms of creativity but of course it is still iconographically correct.
    Maybe in the near future, KSA can collaborate with Kechara In Motion and introduce Lama Tsongkhapa or Buddha in 3D. ;)

  7. Ashley on Jul 10, 2010 at 6:34 pm

    The statue looks amazing, the statue has deeply impress me by the first seen. Be honestly, I have not seen many statues before, but the Vajra Yogini has bring a lot of attention to me. I believe KSA workers/volunteers have putting a lot of efforts. I understand that by volunteering, we can accumulate alot of merits and benefits. By volunteering, we can even understand more about the story behind with different statue. I wish I could spend sometime with KSA and create more amazing artworks to benefits others and spread the Dharma around.

  8. Anila on Sep 4, 2010 at 4:18 pm

    Yes Vajrayogini is spectacular and stunning. Whoever has done the reconstruction did a very good job. The combination of the colours of the jewels put on the statue is very matching. The dressing up also is very important. It can change tne whole outlook. There is a difference with volunteering or working in KSA. KSA is under the umbrella of Tsem Rinpoche which has also 12 departments. Anyone working for KSA is also working for Rinpoche which indirectly is an offering to Rinpoche. And also accumulating merits for yourself.

  9. Uncle Eddie on Sep 7, 2010 at 3:03 pm

    With a team of dedicated talented people, KSA can make your spiritual world a meaningful experience, as can be seen in these fabuluous creative decorations, especially with the gleaming and sparkling crystals added onto this beautiful 8 inch statue of Vajrayogini! Through the hours of hard work which may have been expertly spent in sticking the crystals onto the statue, this bring out the attractive shine to enhance the devine beauty of this stunning statue. KSA being the 1st authentic tibetan arts studio in south east asia, is the brainchild of our compassion guru, H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. With a strong vision in wanting to bring the people closer to spirituality, Tsem rinpoche is using KSA art to capture the people’s spiritual hearts. Anyone who has artistic skills or for personal appreciation can offer their services to KSA as volunteers and at the same time to enrich their spiritual knowledge.

  10. Knut Eggers on Sep 30, 2010 at 5:05 pm

    Yes, all Buddhas listen to me: I DO want to visit the Ketchara Arts Department and meet its friendly people. LOVE the idea. Please please, oh Vadjra Yoghini, guide me on my long journey.

  11. Knut Eggers on Sep 30, 2010 at 10:25 pm

    Dear Girlie OOI,
    How much idoes this beautiful piece cost?

  12. Knut Eggers on Oct 2, 2010 at 2:25 am

    How do I get to Malaisia, this strange and unknown land of my future?

  13. Anila on Oct 28, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    KSA the only Tibetan art studio in Malaysia that has local, people sewing, painting, putting jewellery, repainting of statues. Rinpoche has his 8″ Vajrayogini statue decorated and beautifully done by local volunteers and staff in KSA. It is much cheaper and when there are flaws in a statue that needs to be corrected immediately. Instead of sending it back to India where transportation charges are incurred. Not only Vajrayogini Images are being done locally but other deities images are also done. Jewelleries are put and brocade clothes are sewn. Sales are cheaper and when many people can afford to buy. This will generate funds to help maintain and sustain and maintain Kechara Saraswati Arts Department.

  14. wei theng on Nov 10, 2012 at 3:55 am

    This is very beautiful! I would like to invite this beautiful, sacred VY home one day!
    KSA has been spreading Dharma through art, creativity and crafts. Well done! Would like to see that KSA organize more art and creativities classes and spread Dharma to the arts lovers.

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.

The highest achievements are usually done alone.~Tsem Rinpoche (Sometimes the further you move up and achieve, the less people will be around or unable to keep up. Some cannot understand, accept or wish to do more and they can drop off. Some may wish you well but cannot keep up anyways. The higher your goals, the less most are able to understand or envision. Some may be even against you. But what is important is you stay focused and consistent. After all big achievements are done by only a few and not the majority. Highest achievements are usually done alone or with a very few. Stamina, vision, consistency, focus, care, responsibility and sometimes even a sense of compassion is necessary to achieve anything big. Giving up gets us nowhere, so continuing is a good option. When you make it, some will come back, many will join and the naysayers regret and wished they had stayed. Tsem Rinpoche)

Mother gorilla's heart- A child fell into the gorilla cage. She broke her arms and legs and she was unconcious. A male gorilla came and tried to hurt her. Luckily, a female gorilla rescued her by chasing other gorillas away not to hurt her. This is an instinct of mother animals that take care of their babies. The mother gorilla climbed the 57 ft wall and took the girl to the zoo officer. The girl was sent to hospital and the doctor cured her.

The fact of the matter is this – we all should be treated equally and there should never be rules and regulations against us as people or citizens based on our religious beliefs. Whether our religious beliefs are accepted or considered accurate interpretations, we are still people underneath. We all need food, love, compassion and deserve inalienable birth rights such as freedom of choice. No leader, whether secular or religious, should ever be allowed to take that away from us. ~ I pray to what I want to http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/i-pray-to-what-i-want-to.html Join us as we discuss this interesting topic on blog chat http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/chat Date: USA Friday 19th Dec @7pmPST & M’SIA Saturday 20th Dec @11amGMT+8 (Joy)
