Our new dept Kechara Care is opening soon in a matter of days as renovations nearly finished. Even though it's not opened yet, it has been bursting with activities as you see in the pictures.

Kechara is very proud of this new dept whose function is to nurture new people to Kechara House. We get so many visitors and so many new people, so a dept has been developed to take then on tours, answer questions and introduce them to our various activities.

Much Care,

Tsem Rinpoche

    Kechara Care (KC) was initially formed as a dept to take care of newbies and was housed in Ladrang with Su Ming and James as the main staff. It was supposed to be a Gift Section where gifts are stored and to be given away by Rinpoche. But now we have a different version of Kechara Care. A Kechara Care with different activities. When Kechara Care moved to their premises at Sunway Mas. Kechara Care has changed into a Lounge with Karaoke where KH members and there friends can relax in the evening. Apart from Su Ming and James there are also increase of fulltime staff to help in Kechara Care like Nicholus Yu, May Ong, and Bryan and some volunteers.

    Once the floodgates open KC will be busy the whole time managing all manner of newbies to Kechara. KC is very pivotal in the ‘after sales service’ of people connecting to Kechara. Can’t wait to go sing Karaoke there :) .
    Hope KC can serve food real quick and creative ones at that.

    Kechara aims to cater to a large cross section of people of different ages and with differing interests. At least in this part of the world, Buddhist practice is usually associated with older people. Many young people defer spiritual practice till later in life because they think they have a whole life ahead of them and they want to “live life to the fullest” and do all the things they want to do without being put on a guilt trip. They fear that becoming involved means they have to give up their fun. Spiritual practice and fun are viewed as total opposites. So if they have any interest in spiritual matters, they hope to put any practice on hold till they get older. They would rather “enjoy life” first.
    However, at Kechara, we learn that fun and dharma are but 2 sides of the same coin. You can have one with the other, but guided by certain principles. Young people are driven by the pop culture (in my case rock culture). Music moves them. That’s why churches with live pulsating music attract young people by the droves as compared to serene mantra chanting in temples.
    But it’s during those young adulthood years when they are rash and inquisitive. They want to experiment on everything that life has to offer with their new found freedom and insist they will do so with no regrets. In the process they make mistakes and some of the negative effects impact them for life. Some of us live to tell the story!
    So rather than prohibiting them from their fun, which won’t work as they will go ahead anyway, give them the avenue to express themselves in this way, but in a safe, clean environment. So a dharma “watering hole” is so “in”, so apt and so spiritual. There you have it, both sides of the same coin. When my kids grow up, I’d rather they hang out here (at least most of the time) rather than some club somewhere and worry about what they are up to.
    IMHO, as long as the Kechara Care Lounge (perhaps find a more hip name than this?) remains open to the public instead of becoming some sort of private club, the aim that was set out to be achieved (to attract the younger-set to dharma) would be realized, otherwise its reach and full potential would not be maximised.

  5. John Colquhoun on Jul 17, 2010 at 4:09 am

    It looks such a fun place to visit that i fear i would not leave, and that wouldn’t be that bad would it!!!

  6. Li Kheng on Jul 15, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    Kechara Care will play a vital role in the growth of Kechara House as this organization is established solely to benefit people. Therefore, taking care of its people is naturally the essential motto.
    In their zeal, the “oldies” forget that new comers do not know the Dharma in depth and have limited knowledge about Kechara as an organization. It can be overwhelming to grasp “advanced” conversations about rituals, Buddha names, the many Kechara departments etc.
    Kechara Care will be perfect to overcome this situation, as it will take care of our new friends. Similarly, Su Ming is the ideal caring, warm and passionate leader to head this department. This is speaking from experience as Su Ming took care of me and has taken care of anyone who comes to Kechara…even when she is not asked to do so. One of the reasons I am drawn to Kechara is because I see Su Ming as a “product” of Dharma and Kechara and I admire her qualities.

  7. Josh Akers on Jul 15, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    Blessings for the new department. It is good for the older students as well. They must know the subject matter well! Another facet of Kechara opens.

  8. BK on Jul 15, 2010 at 5:45 am

    Kechara Care rocks! Imagine a place designed to fit today’s modern distracted generation, cater to their need for socialising, chatting over a coffee, watching a movie, hanging out and simply being FUN FUN FUN but with a much deeper purpose.
    Just like ANYTHING that Rinpoche does, Kechara Care will be full of Dharma from beginning, middle to end. And even the ‘swans’ practicing there today are also full of Dharma- what better way to kill the ego by making unlikely candidates dress up in white and black tutus to perform in front of 800 people at a charity dinner???
    And I must say that Thierry is a natural – a towering pillar of grace, poise, elegance … and feathers of course!

  9. Elena on Jul 15, 2010 at 4:34 am

    Not just that they’re booking it, but how comfortable everyone looks! Nicholas and Ethan look sooooo at home sitting on that sofa!

  10. Cynthia Lee on Jul 15, 2010 at 2:51 am

    Thierry, I saw you really focusing hard on getting your moves right. You are a natural! It was really happening just now. I didn’t want to leave but I was getting distracted looking at Mr Ngeow, Fat Monk and Tat Ming flapping their “wings”, Su Ming and I had to move to e-Div to continue our meeting. Very funny.
    I am very excited for KC to be completed. In future, I can invite my friends and family over for coffee like how we used to hang out. Very casual and doesn’t look hard sell because we’re just chilling. So it appears! Cover line ;)
    This place is really going to be the forefront to attract newbies and convert their attachments to a deeper meaning in life.

  11. Paris on Jul 15, 2010 at 2:24 am

    I SAW a sneak peak of you THIERRY, in your element, on tiptoe, very poised and beautiful, I must say…. Kechara really does bring out the best in everyone.
    I’m loving the fact that we haven’t even moved in yet and everyone is booking KC’s space for activities. hehehe Imagine when the new GOMPA comes up – it’ll be like a 24 hour disco going on in SunwayMas (especially as Kechara people never sleep and have boundless energy – loves it).
    I’m really happy to hear that Jay loved his visit to KC and “especially the people” because this is what Kechara Care is all about – connecting to people, by people, and bringing Dharma to others in action.

  12. thierryfornow on Jul 14, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    Hey Andrew, I can’t wait to see YOU in a tutu… LOL…
    I am very excited… tonight I am trying my tutu!
    How wonderful that we get to be part of a spiritual practice that, indeed, engages in activities that outwardly would seem rather awkward for a buddhist center to engage in. Well, I hope this is not only for fun lah, I hope it makes people think about what spirituality is, about what the buddhist teachings are. They certainly are not teachings that tell us, we should not wear a tutu or high heels.
    I wish that many are inspired to engage in a spiritual practice by seeing us wearing heels or dancing away in a tutu.

  13. Shirley Tan on Jul 14, 2010 at 4:06 pm

    Countdown to Kechara Care’s Lounge Opening!!! It is going to be the first of its kind. Who has ever heard of a Buddhist Organization having a social, hip and happening Lounge as part of their various departments? If you had not noticed already, at Kechara – we always do things differently and we like it that way!
    Now, this is really Dharma as you are – Kechara style, of course.

  14. Andrew James Boon on Jul 14, 2010 at 2:15 pm

    I LOVE IT! LOVE IT, LOVE IT!
    Am I excited? DUH! Can’t wait to throw parties, etc there. How wonderful it is that Rinpoche constantly thinks outside the box and pushes us in the right direction through very skillfull means.
    This venue for KC will be an incredible “tool” to help draw in the young as well as the not so young… hehehe.
    It will be great to have a place where we can all hang out that is NOT the mamak, some stinky coffee shop or overpriced cafe. It is important and crucial that we have the venue to interact socially within a Dharmic support as our secular lives are just too alluring and we need the support of our Dharma family and friends to help us cope… Well at least that is how I feel!

  15. May Ong on Jul 14, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    Kechara Care finally have a place where visitors can come in to have a chat or to hang around in the Buddhist centre. It is a lounge cum party area. It is a cinema where visitors can view “movies” like Star Wars. It is for Introduction to Buddhism in English and Chinese. It can also be a vegetarian “bar”. They are versatile. Its a place for everyone.

    Dear friends, On June 21, 2015, myself with 700 Kechara members and friends had special audience with our supreme dharma protector in full trance of the official oracle. Please see the fantastic video and 196 color photos of the event: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=68740 We were working on the oracle video for over 8 days. We have professionals in house to do it. There are many parts we have not included as it is some confidential questions and answers. But most of it we have posted. Everyone should carefully read the post, see the pictures and video when you have time. You will learn more and understand more about this special aspect of Tibetan Buddhism. Tsem Rinpoche

    Prior to 1996, all Dorje Shugden practitioners and non-Dorje Shugden practitioners were in the same monasteries, the same hospitals, the same schools, the same government positions, the same kind of meetings/gatherings. They all went to the same Lamas but after 1996, when the ban was introduced and heavily enforced, then suddenly there were Dorje Shugden monasteries and non-Dorje Shugden monasteries. Dorje Shugden people cannot go to the hospitals, cannot go to the schools, cannot have the equal educational opportunities and jobs within the Tibetan community that non-Dorje Shugden people have.

    In general, Tibetans are very poor and they can’t afford statues and beautiful offering items. Therefore, tsa tsas become a very practical and affordable object of refuge that they can put on the altar to make their offerings and worship.

    “Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche: At the end of the day, education is brainwashing. Brainwashing is inevitable. We human beings love doing that. We are already brainwashed—we don’t know otherwise. So since we are going to brainwash anyway, it’s good to brainwash with good motivation and so that we can be kind, harmonious, and also decent. Becoming decent human beings seems to be not so much in the modern education agenda because, as we all know, modern education seems to be so much about what we can have. Human beings are defined by what we have, like cars and houses. And then modern education is also so much geared towards getting a job. There are very few schools that teach you anything other than what will benefit you in getting a job”

    “His Holiness Zong Rinpoche stressed the need to continue to practice even when we come up against obstacles, and that we should continually review our progress. He stated that a happy, luxurious life was like a good dream, and that obstacles and difficulties were like a bad dream. We should give them no significance, but simply carry on working towards real, everlasting happiness.”

    At the age of 23, Tsongkhapa went to the region of U to meet up with some people from his hometown, Amdo. His friends entreated him to return to Amdo and they also gave him a letter from his mother. She also requested him to return to Amdo and had slipped one of her white hairs in the letter too. Touched by this, Tsongkhapa considered returning to Amdo for a while. However, when he contemplated deeper. he realized that if he left for Amdo, he would be disrupting his practices of mental discipline. As there was no benefit, he sadly decided not to return to his homeland. Instead he sent a thangka of a painting of himself to his mother in Amdo. When his mother opened it, the picture spoke to her and it was as if Tsongkhapa was there with her, which brought her great joy. In a letter accompanying the thangka, Tsongkhapa requested his mother and sister to build a stupa around the sandalwood tree which had sprung up at his birth. His mother and sister complied and from that stupa, the holy monastery of Kumbum developed.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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

This is powerful. We are in a great place and that is Kechara. Some in the past and present and maybe future may think otherwise. And that is ok. Everyone has their karma to contend with. But if we put our efforts in Kechara and it's our genuine efforts, it can be no different than other places and even better. Where we put our efforts is where we will get the results. I guess this illustration says it all. "The grass isn't greener on the other side. It's greener where YOU water it.". Where we 'water' it is the effort we put in. Since we are here, we should do our best instead of doing little or mediocre thinking there is a better place and this is just a transition place. Because maybe this is the best place but some of us don't see it because we are blinded by our projections. Just my thoughts. Tsem Rinpoche

And it is through this generosity (not the greed we are accustomed to) that we can attain real wealth.
