After a 9 hour meeting last night with Rinpoche and some liaisons, it was decided that Dato’ Ruby Khong will be leading our WORLD PEACE TEMPLE project while Phng Li Kim will be heading KECHARA VILLAGE. Both these exciting developments are part of our KECHARA FOREST RETREAT, situated in the greenery and hills of Chamang, Pahang. Meanwhile, Datuk May Phng will be leading the development of Menara Kechara in Kuala Lumpur, a place in the city where all of Kechara works will be present under one roof. As the heads, these three liaisons will oversee the planning, design, construction, interiors etc – basically all aspects of these beneficial projects until completion. Please extend your congratulations and well wishes to these three Liaisons who are taking the lead in these KECHARA projects for benefit of many.

The Work Has Begun!

Exciting earthworks have been happening at the Kechara Forest Retreat over the past week! The contractors have cleared part of the front portion of the land and also the hillock for the future Ladrang. They have also cleared a new road from the front entrance leading to the back of the land where the temporary abodes are.

Rinpoche has gone to KFR a few times to perform pujas for the land gods there to ensure that work on the land continues smoothly. As the land is being cleared, there will be sentient beings (nagas, devas and land deities) whose lives and families are disturbed. A puja is performed to explain to them what we are doing at the land and Rinpoche has promised them that Kechara Forest Retreat with its huge temple will benefit them and the thousands who will be coming here in the future. More trees will also be planted to ensure that their living conditions are better.

Another exciting development is that the back portion of the KFR land has been identified by Rinpoche as the location for building the Kechara Village. It will be a place where Rinpoche can stay in the forest with his personal attendants and other Kecharians; to work and stay while construction work is being done in KFR. Rinpoche being at KFR will draw much needed positive energy for KFR to manifest swiftly.

Kechara Village will be built on five acres of land where it will consist of:

  • Rinpoche’s cabin
  • Cabins for the personal attendants
  • Cabins for guests
  • A chapel
  • A huge working/chill out area
  • Organic vegetable farm
  • Aviary
  • Stupa

All this is to create a conducive working and living environment in the forest for Rinpoche and Kecharians.

Kechara Forest Retreat is back on track!

 

Dear Kecharians and friends,

I joyfully wish to inform all of you that after a long meeting yesterday, on 31 July, Rinpoche has kindly given us the Blessings for the manifestation of KECHARA FOREST RETREAT. Rinpoche will make an announcement about this in due course. I thank Rinpoche for his blessings and for giving us this tremendous opportunity to benefit many. I also thank Kecharians and friends who have worked hard and contributed towards us obtaining this great privilege.

During this meeting, Rinpoche said that his blessings for the manifestation of the Kechara Forest Retreat was due to Datuk May’s sincerity and her perseverance and dedication to ensure that the Kechara Forest Retreat manifests.

Rinpoche emphasised that while the building of the physical Kechara Forest Retreat is going forward, it is vital that we must have more dedicated and committed people to run and maintain the Kechara Forest Retreat well. The Kechara Forest Retreat must be functional and not just empty buildings. It must be an institution that will benefit many.

Rinpoche was not well during this meeting, with high fever and flu but Rinpoche very patiently spent hours with a small group of students to discuss various issues, which culminated in Rinpoche giving his blessings for the manifestation of this meritorious project.

We thank Rinpoche for Rinpoche’s blessings and wish Rinpoche a speedy recovery.

 


 

 

Dear members and friends,

We have acquired 35 acres in Chamang in a pristine wooded area. It is an hour’s drive from Kuala Lumpur and from our mother Kechara House centre in the city. I wanted a place in the woods (literally) where we can practice Dharma in nature with walks, breath meditations and fresh air. We are in the process of building some temporary shelters till a few months later when we can start building permanent structures. We will start building permanent structures as soon as the approvals come… until then we still want to enjoy the place hence the temporary shelters.

I have requested Mr. William Chua to keep us posted on this blog post with pictures of the progress. You would have to visit this post regularly to see what the latest happening is! For weeks now, there have been light activities with contractors coming in and out of the land to do some work… but today Kechara volunteers have officially started coming in to lend a helping hand! The updates will start from today, where Kecharians planted over 300 flowers, shrubs and trees!!!

We have already arranged electricity, water and even internet (soon). We will have Dharma picnics, sharing, walks, pujas and relaxation at this place. I will invite people to join me here.

The president of Kechara House Datuk May Phng is in charge of the project with her great core team of Mr. Martin Chow, Mr. Joe Ang and Mr. Jeffrey Yee. Three strong and intelligent guys will be helping our lady president Datuk May.

I love the mountains, trees, birds, fresh air and open skies. I realized I am not alone. Many of our Kecharians and friends enjoy the same. This will be the perfect place. Our very own Kechara Forest Retreat!! Do read the updates below!

Kechara Forest Retreat @ Chamang

A step closer to Kechara World Peace Centre

 

Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) is a place like no other, nestled in the deep mountains of Chamang, Bentong. It is located about 1 1/2 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur. In the near future, this will be the place for anyone who wishes to seek spiritual solace and for those who wish to have some time out of their daily city life. The creation of this forest retreat is an instrumental step for getting closer to our ultimate goal, Kechara World Peace Centre (KWPC).

This retreat land is conceptualized in a way to maximise the usage of nature, hence the name Kechara Forest Retreat. The moment you step into KFR, you will be greeted by beautiful fauna and flora unlike other centres in the city. Nestled right in the middle of the land will be a Prayer Hall where everyone can go to make their wishes and prayers, or simply meditate in tranquil surroundings.

The land was successfully acquired by Kechara House under the leadership of Kechara House President, Datuk May and her team. Datuk May is working hard with her team and everyone else in Kechara to fund raise for the development of the land and servicing of the loan. Ground works have already begun with the team building a temporary abode for our Lama, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche to live in. With the sheer dedication and hard work of Datuk May and her team, the temporary abode will be up in just a few days, after which, Rinpoche will frequent the land to do prayers and blessings in preparations for the construction works.


A) The purpose
:

To have a forest retreat out of the city where people can visit or seek spiritual solace and growth. People from all walks of life are welcome to visit and practice here.

B) What the Kechara Forest Retreat will have:

1. A butterlamp house where the public can make light offerings to the Buddhas.

2. A Shakyamuni Chapel which can seat 700 people.

3. A Vajrayogini Stupa where practitioners can circumambulate. Click here to see how you can Get Involved with Vajrayogini Stupa at Kechara Forest Rtreat!

4. Forest Walks where people can enjoy nature.

5. An aviary for rescued birds.

6. An organic vegetable garden where the public can learn on how to grow vegetables in their own homes.

7. A candle-making factory where we will produce our own candles for our butterlamp house and people can also learn how to make their own candles.

8. Circumambulation paths where practitioners can circumambulate and do walking meditations.

9. Walking Meditation Paths for the serious practitioners.

10. Buddha statues will be strategically placed around the land to bless the surroundings and animals.

11. A canteen to cater to the culinary needs of the public.

12. A gift shop where people can purchase souvenirs for family and friends.

13. Private quarters for Rinpoche and his assistants, otherwise known as a Ladrang.

Disclaimer: The facilities above may change as the planning is still ongoing. We may have more or new facilities while the project is in progress.

This is not a one-off post but we will continue to update everyone on the progress, the latest news and happenings at KFR so that you will know what is going on there. Please check back weekly for more exciting news as we progress!

Regards,
William Chua

    I have been to Kechara Forest Retreat for Lama Tsongkhapa retreat twice. We are all very blessed to be able to practise dharma here and I thank Rinpoche for your kindness to build KFR.

    I sincerely hope Kechara and KFR will continue to grow and expand so more people can benefit from learning dharma.

  2. Pee Bee Chong on Jan 3, 2015 at 7:32 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and everyone for making this happen. With KFR, we can do retreat and join the sadhana programme at KFR. Thank you again. May all Rinpoche’s projects manifest swiftly.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

  12. Jean Mei on Jan 14, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    There should be a like button somewhere on this page!!! I’m itching to like this post!

    The first time that I went to Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) was when Rinpoche wanted to do a Land God blessing in the middle of the night. To be honest, it wasn’t a pleasant experience. There were no lights, lots of leeches bouncing up and down all over the swampy land, it was hot and there were so so so so many bugs and mosquitoes attacking us from all directions.

    I mean, it was the kind of condition where your body would scream, “GET OUT OF THERE!”

    But then I realized how Rinpoche was composed despite being bitten all over the arms, and despite the fact that it was way wayy wayy above the temperature Rinpoche was used to – it must have been uncomfortable for Rinpoche, yet Rinpoche was there to bless the land.

    Rinpoche is truly compassionate towards all beings: seen and unseen. Rinpoche said that there were beings on the land who will be disturbed, confused and perhaps even angry when the construction machines come in. It’s like someone knocking your house down and expecting you to be ok with it…

    It was necessary to do the Land God offering to both appease them, and to keep the workers safe while constructing KFR.

    Kechara Forest Retreat will benefit many. I hope to see lots and lots of new faces joining in the volunteer 🙂

    Please reconsider the master plan make all of the building from local mud and grass , find power and water from local source with all intellect retrurn the bush back to the way it was keep not avaiary but allow local birds to fly free and replant forest for them to do so as for worms dug up in the earth works remember food

  15. Martin on Oct 22, 2012 at 3:14 am

    A few days ago, the workers at KFR cut a new service road that goes around the land and with that you can see much more of the land that was previously hidden by the forest and trees. The service road is big and wide enough to allow bigger machines to come and do work which will accelerate development of the 3 concurrent projects (expansion of the existing cabins, Kechara Village and the main development of KFR which will offer amongst other things, a modern Gompa with traditional features that can accommodate up to 3000 people and housing a large Shakyamuni statue, the Ladrang, Galleries and a Kechara Museum, a vegetarian restaurant, circumambulation paths, Buddha walks, stupas, and a lot more).

    For me, the most exciting development this past week is the clearing of the site that is to be Rinpoche’s Ladrang. I don’t quit know how to describe it and ‘stunning’ doesn’t even come near. From the top of that hill, I could see panoramic views of ponds and lakes, undulating hills and so much green all around.

    May KFR manifest quickly so that many will come to be blessed by it.

  16. Martin on Oct 19, 2012 at 2:58 am

    At the moment, we have 3 concurrent projects at KFR i.e. (i) expansion of existing cabin set up, (ii) Kechara Village and (iii) the main construction at KFR. On the outset they look like separate projects but very soon all three will dovetail and KFR will be up. All 3 are Masterminded by Rinpoche himself who has an amazing capacity to think in multi-dimensions…lateral and yet focussed. Most of us do not have that kind of capacity and we greatly benefit by following the Guru’s instructions to the letter.

    At the boundary of the of the expansion site is a walkway flanked by trees…Rinpoche calls it the Enchanted Forest and it does look magical. Follow this and you will end up in Kechara Village. Overlooking everything is a hillock on which Rinpoche’s Ladrang will be…the Dharma King watching over his flock.

  17. Martin on Oct 16, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    The tractors are getting ready to clear the grounds where we will be building a new cabin for Rinpoche, add a number of new cabins and toilets for guests, a safe “play” area for Mumus, a big kitchen and dining area, and an organic garden. All this additions will be done beside the existing cabin area. Rinpoche has had to put up with a small cabin and washroom all this time and a bigger cabin will give Rinpoche the badly needed space to work and meet guests. KFR is just growing and growing.

  18. Martin on Oct 16, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    16th October 2012: Greetings from KFR. The tractors are getting ready to clear the grounds where we will be building a new cabin for Rinpoche, add a number of new cabins and toilets for guests, a safe “play” area for Mumus, a big kitchen and dining area, and an organic garden. All this additions will be done beside the existing cabin area.

    Rinpoche has had to put up with a small cabin all this time and a bigger cabin and compound will give Rinpoche the badly needed space to work and plan meet with people.

  19. Martin on Oct 15, 2012 at 5:14 am

    So much is happening at KFR! Early this month Datuk May and Dato’ Eric jointly kicked off KFR development, commencing with earthworks. While Kechara Village is being planned by JP Thong, Rinpoche decided to move into the existing cabins a few days ago to bring about his energy and blessing onto the land so that work can progress smoothly.

    A group of us spent the last 2 days with Rinpoche up in KFR during which extension plans to the existing cabin site were discussed and decided upon by Rinpoche. As usual with Rinpoche present, ideas germinate, and quickly thoughts are put into action. Rinpoche would like extensions to KFR immediately so that it can accommodate more people to go visit and be a part of Kechara history in the making.

    As of yesterday, Rinpoche has commissioned a full blown semi-outdoor kitchen to be built in the front of the PO cabin (the entire area where the first outdoor movie screening took place). In addition a proper dinning area as well as 2 additional guest cabins will be placed there. It is quite an experience to sit in the tranquil surrounds on the jungle and see your meal being cooked fresh and serve literally hot off the stove.

    The area at the back and facing the forest/hill (where so many volunteers came for planting excursion) is to be converted into Rinpoche’s compound where he can receive guests and visitors. New cabins for Rinpoche’s attendants will also be placed there and the Mumus will also have their own space to enjoy the outdoors and fresh air safely. These being in place will allow Rinpoche to have extended stays at KFR which is so important for his work in spreading Dharma. The plants of course will be moved to a good location.

    The existing and extended space will be well covered under new awnings ranging from 15-25 feet high to provide good airflow to catch the constant breeze that flows through KFR daily. With this new awning, KFR can then accommodate over 100 people in special pujas in the forest!

    And wait for news about the organic garden planned to be located just beside the new kitchen. KFR IS manifesting and Rinpoche’s mission unfolding is truly Dharma in motion.

    Stay tuned for more updates daily.

    On this Kechara Forest Retreat land (KFR) I wish to place a large 8 ft stone statue of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche outdoors. This would bless so many beings both seen and unseen and create lots of merits as He is Heruka.Who would like to help in this? Tsem Rinpoche

  32. Jutika Lam on Jun 17, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    After this place is fully up and running it would benefit so many people generation after generation. I really love the idea of the stupas where you can cut your pets or even your loved ones hair and toe nails to put in to these stupas for tremendous blessings. I also l like the idea on the huge Gompa, Butterlamp house, Meditation and circumambulation path,Shakyamuni prayer hall and the Aviary where i can help to clean as well as to feed the birds. May it manifest as soon as possible.

  33. Sean Pang on May 10, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    Betty, Vera, Christine and I had the great opportunity to visit KFR just before Wesak Day. It still blows my mind how fast the team got everything up in just 21 days!!!

    We were very fortunate to have been there personally to contribute to the butterlamp house while Likheng coordinated contributions from Shanghai right up to Wesak Day, just before the candles were lit on Sunday, 6th May. Thank you, Likheng! You see, we may be far away from KL but we’re grabbing every opportunity to stay connected! 🙂

    On behalf of the Shanghai group who visited KL, I would like to thank Su Ming and Su An for taking us to KFR and later to the KWPC site, and a big thank you to Martin, Jeffrey and Joe (The Three Musketeers!!) for showing us around KFR and being the hearts and muscles behind this project.

    Thanks, Jeffrey, for the wonderful pictures of the lit candles from 6th May!

    We’ll be following your progress here!

  35. Li Kim on May 8, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    Nice new video! Simple and to the point and you get to experience the “feel” of KFR by watching the video. I thank everyone who have contributed to the development of KFR so far… Continue to contribute and introduce this great place to you your friends! The more the merrier…

  36. Low ksjc on May 7, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    We were glad to be able to visit KFR on 6 May with Pastor Ngeow leading the group there.It was a great chance for us to meet those who made KFR happend and those who contribute their time and efford to benefit others, to make the vision into reality.With the synergy of those true Kecharans who show us what is real compassion and dedication I salute them. THANK YOU !!!

  37. Li Kheng on May 7, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    Thanks for the regular updates! It is amazing to see the progress made in KFR!

    I just want to thank Rinpoche and KFR Team creating this awesome platform. Before it is even officially open, many are already enjoying the Dharma benefits of KFR. This is with reference to the butterlamp offering conducted last night where over 400 butterlamps were lit. The KFR team was so kind to share the breathtaking image with me. THANK YOU!!!

    Additionally, besides benefitting those in Malaysia, KFR reached friends from other parts of the world. 4 Kecharians from Shanghai made a trip to KL in celebration of Wesak Day. Not wanting to loose the opportunity to involve friends back home, they enrolled the lighting 34 candles in the Butterlamp House.

    May KFR quickly manifest and benefit people from all over the world. GLOBAL Kechara go !!! 🙂

    Dear all,
    Visit our new website at http://retreat.kechara.com . You will find information on KFR and the latest updates on what has been happening there. More and more people are visiting KFR and sharing to their family and friends.

  39. nicholas on May 3, 2012 at 4:51 pm

    On 29 April, 43 people visited KFR. They were so happy and Pastor Ngeow also share the important of promoting KFR to all the visitors. Even suggest to ask each of them to bring 5 friend to KFR for visiting. The more people we reach the more people will know and support the build of KFR.

    Martin and Pastor Ngeow also brought us to the rubber trees behind the “Cave” and we witness the left over stove and bath tub. Great finding. Some historical finding hahaha….everyone enjoy the trip and uploaded the pic that they took at facebook to promote to their friends! Great.

    this is very touch that this project focus on how to benefit people who looking for quite environment for retreat, while at the same time, it can be a place for candle making, learn how to plant vegetable which is benefit us after our visit.you can enjoy the nature while no need to worry no basic fundamental structure,food can be provide to here. if there is regular bas provided from KH to KFR, it may benefit for those without transport yet wanted to go to KFR.tq

    我赤着脚,白天在行禅道上学习走动冥想。

    围绕着(金刚瑜伽母的佛塔),一心一意只有平静呼吸与慢步,走著走著,心情变得十分平静。

    这里四周充满着宁静感,温和的凉风徐徐地吹着,偶尔飘来树林的青涩味道,发出一丝丝的香味。。。

    还有几声鸟鸣啾啾。。。此刻我已进入冥想。。。。。。。。。

    晚上的时候,当明月高挂在蓝紫色夜空中,月光裸露在大地,树叶也跟随着月光一起挪动共舞。。。
    此刻,我坐在 (释迦牟尼佛殿),在我前面是尊贵的佛陀,请你聆听我的祈盼。。。

    我期待。。。一个灵修圣地。。。~ 克切拉禅修林 。

    希望你的到来。。。我想偶尔你会喜欢这样的一个地方。一个学习保护心灵的地方。。。。。。。

    Dear KFR volunteers,
    thank you for your effort in doing work that is greatly meaningful and will benefit many in the future. And also, thanks to Yik Ming and Doreen for offering two rechargeable emergency flourescent lights to KFR. 🙂
    Love,
    Joe

    • Datuk May on Apr 30, 2012 at 4:13 pm

      Hi Joe,
      Great to know how hard you, Jeffery and Martin worked to clear the flooded entrance road and rebuilt it so that 43 people can enjoy being at KFR.

      Thank you, guys. Datuk May

  47. Sofi on Apr 29, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Today was my second visit to KFR. This time I brought my hubby and children Katrina & Nicholas along. As a visitor this time round, I got the guided tour from Martin. We had a moment of silence to just enjoy what nature has to offer, ie. birds chirping, running water, insects buzzing, etc. KFR will definitely be a great meditative place for all. If we are able to be silent and open our ears/mind, we will be able to receive so much more. Thanks Rinpoche for KFR and all those who work so hard to manifest this project.

  48. Khoo Hou Haw on Apr 29, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    Just visited KFR again. I have the honor to visited Chamang 3 times; first time as a gardener, second time as a guest, and today as an assistant video camera man, hehe. It is very different from my first visit, there are a lot of improvement. It is very touch to see the efforts of all the Kecharian whether full timer or volunteers showing up with the result. The 3 Musketeers are always there with their musketeer boots, doing their job tirelessly, haha.

  49. Chew Han Keai on Apr 29, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Very good and good for pratitioner, will love to be there

  50. Andrew.Hibberd on Apr 29, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    kechara many opportunities in australia the price of 35 acres in malaysia is same price as 35.000.00 acres in australian

  51. Sock Wan on Apr 29, 2012 at 2:02 am

    Well done, Martin, Joe and Jeffrey. You guys acted really fast to fix the road. 10 years later when you look back, you would see so many people have walked the path you lay and find their peace and happiness.

  52. william on Apr 27, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Thank you Martin, Joe and Jeffrey for your quick action in repairing the road that was flooded by the heavy rain….. great job! Your sweat and back pain are all worth it because a lot of people will benefit from visiting the place.

    • Mc on Apr 28, 2012 at 12:34 am

      Jeff and Joe worked very hard indeed. I was mostly flat on my back in the cabin this time…hehe. I am again amazed that when people work sincerely for the dharma they don’t ask for breaks even though they are tired and they don’t complain that the job is hard. I mean, Joe and Jeff are 2 guys from the city…what do they know about repairing roads and shoveling sand? And yet this is precisely what they did under the very hot sun for the whole day. Jeff did really back breaking work carrying bags of sand. Those things are heavy!

  53. jp on Apr 27, 2012 at 1:33 pm

    The video is very good. So many Kecharians went to KFR to help out. It was a great opportunity to bond and work with Kecharians whom are usually busy with their own portfolios. All us contributed in the building of the forest retreat. The energy was wonderful.

  54. wt on Apr 26, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Thank you! It is a great video! Happy to see so many working together and building Kechara Forest Retreat.
    Just like Rinpoche said for KWPC, “Alone we cannot, Together we CAN!”
    Let’s work together in harmony to build this KFR and create the cause for KWPC! This will benefit a lot of beings!

  55. Albert on Apr 26, 2012 at 4:05 pm

    How amazing when look at the progress of KFR, it started with a thought of buying the land months ago, then start of a visual dream of where we built this, where we built that, that time, everything is just talk, can’t even see anything yet, but today, we not only acquired the land, we even started to built (this time it is not visualize, but it’s the REAL BUILDING)… we are one step, one step walking towards the plan of having a retreat centre that is out of town, where people can go do meditation and prayers.

    When looking at the video, it is really touching, look at the people working, every single inch of the land is filled with efforts, sweat and tears of these hardworking and dedicated Kecharian, just imagine 10 – 20 years later when everything is well established, when we watch back this video, this is where we started…

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us the chance to do something so great.

    • Kechara Forest Retreat on Apr 27, 2012 at 12:25 am

      Yes Albert, Kecharians have the opportunity to contribute to this project, through monetary or non-monetary terms. That’s why it is so great! Hope this video will inspire more people to volunteer and do more.

  56. LilyT on Apr 26, 2012 at 8:51 am

    I can’t help but feel that this is the making of “Findhorn of the East”, right here in Malaysia. A spiritual community, organic garden or maybe an ecovillage?

  57. mayy on Apr 25, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    Wow! Am so excited to see that Kechara Forest Retreat is taking shape now. Can’t wait to go to this beautiful, serene place to do the weekend retreat, walking meditation, butterlamp offering, etc.

  58. MayOng on Apr 25, 2012 at 1:38 pm

    I love the KFR video alot! Watching lay sangha friends sweating in the hot sun working happily is a sight to behold. Friends out there – please contribute to this great cause that is worthy of our life, in effort, resource, money, time, raise funds and whatever way you can to help it manifest quicker for Rinpoche and KWPC.

  59. Victor Hoi on Apr 25, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    This video touched my heart that I sees a great teamwork and effort to make kechara forest retreat happen. This creates the harmonies amongst people n the feelings to attract more and more people to do dharma work especially me. I wish that I can contribute my energy and my sweat at KFR

  60. tenzin llhamo on Apr 25, 2012 at 11:54 am

    Kechara Forest Retreat is a BEAUTIFUL place to be in! So many exciting activities going on everyday! Thank you everyone who made the place the way it is and better! Everyone is invited to be there in the future when the place is up and ready for viewing and to make offerings to our loved ones! I am definitely going there with my family and friends as often as I can!

  61. Yokefui on Apr 25, 2012 at 10:14 am

    KIM, well done ! I love the video.

    KFR will offer a variety of retreats and holistic activities to all. Let’s get to work, everyone before we get too old to enjoy this Forest Retreat !

  63. Pastor Susan on Apr 24, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    Oh MY! I love the KFR video which is 3:16 long. This is our first video right? I love seeing all the volunteers helping out in whatever that’s needed to be done. The feeling i get when watching this KFR is a sense of old time communal service..which i love very much!

  64. william on Apr 24, 2012 at 3:57 pm

    It is really amazing to see the rainbow after all work is done. And it is really a sign that we are doing a good thing. Datuk May, Martin, Joe and Jeffrey has done a great job getting the temporary abodes ready. And they did it in such a short time.

    This is the beginning of our dream to achieve KWPC. WE start with KFR! Dreams can become a reality when we work on in. So, let’s join hands together and make this a success for our future generations.

  65. Elsie Toy on Apr 24, 2012 at 10:21 am

    The names sounds very serene to me. I want to go and I hope I can go on the 6 May. I hope I can travel to KH with KSJC study group cos I love to have harmony. I wish to make be there and I know that that is want and I will go for it.

  66. Christine on Apr 24, 2012 at 2:06 am

    How wonderful to have such a beautiful land in the middle of forest for people to do retreat! Such a holy land! Very happy to see all the familiar faces in the pictures. You guys work so hard. Wish I could join and help to plant some flowers/ trees. Look forward to visit KL soon!

  67. soon huat on Apr 23, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche. Wish we could visit the chamang site and perform retreat over there.

  68. Louise Lee on Apr 23, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    Hahahah we are very busy in last weekend, coz Kechara House is celebrating Wesak Fair in Sunway Pyramid shopping mall. But we’re also dont make it as a reason to stop ourselves visit Chamang Land.

    If you say it , you do it, you’ll do it !!
    I love the place, everyday when i look at the photo in the blog, i tell myself i want to do it. i want to do it!

    Saturday Paul bring us to the land. And tell what we need to do for it. I am so happy , coz we got the blessing from Rinpoche to build statue and everything need in there !!

    Oh my buddha , i want it ! We also make 1 more step to go so near our KWPC !

  69. Vaiwa Veg on Apr 23, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    Wow that’s very nice:) and ppl seem to be so happy in these pics… Best of luck for your work!

  70. Li Kheng on Apr 23, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    Posting for Sean:

    How wonderful! Thank you, Kechara House, Datuk May and all who are working so hard to realise yet another great project from Rinpoche!

    I know it’s work in progress but is it possible to visit the KFR site… or maybe even join in to help? A small group of us from Shanghai (Christine, Betty, Vera and me) are coming to KL for the Wesak Day celebration. Time will be tight and everyone will be busy, as usual, but it would be great if we could see it…

    Wouldn’t it be great if we could also have a retreat here, a peaceful sanctuary that offers a break from the hyper mode of Shanghai…

  71. freon on Apr 23, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    I think this is the most tidy, need and fast “build” construction site. In such a short time, water, electricity even wifi and food stalls, washroom are equip. wow!

  72. Ethan Chu on Apr 23, 2012 at 4:23 am

    These few days, I have the great honour to help out and do some work at Kechara Forest Retreat. To me this piece of land is not just for retreat, gain merits or another temple. It is the piece of land, the Kecharians found together, and this piece of land is going to be a place for us to do our practices, work, and the benefits that we received and share it with others.

    These few days, I see groups and groups of people visiting. Groups and groups of people volunteering whether it is plantation, construction or fixing furniture; it is so meaningful. Why? Because it is because of us working together, this project is possible. Gaining merits if one thing but seeing the true beauty of Unity, harmony, be a part of bringing dharma and peace to people is another. I am very happy to see many work with smiley faces because deep down inside we are all so honoured to be a part of this massive meaningful project. Never in my life I would imagine doing something like this. I am guessing you too!

    Let’s make it happen people, Kecharians! Let’s make more Kecharians and bring we have to others so they can enjoy and be a part of us too! I’ll see you on the land very soon, just hola!

  73. Matt on Apr 21, 2012 at 3:44 am

    This is spectacular! I rejoice in this marvelous activity! Its wonderful that there will be a retreat culture coming to Malaysia like this

  74. skyong on Apr 20, 2012 at 8:13 am

    Wow the project moves so fast. Very grateful for all the people who have helped and worked on making KFR become a reality. 🙂

  75. Lim Han Nee on Apr 19, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    Kechara Forest Retreat, a wonderful place to be in to retreat from the madding crowd. I can already visualize being enveloped by the peace and serenity and the resounding spirituality of this forest retreat.

    What a wonderful job done by the committed crew and volunteers to plant and create a garden and a temporary abode.An immensely lovely offering to Rinpoche!

  77. Li Kheng on Apr 17, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for creating this blog whereby we receive regular updated on such an exciting project.

    From the write up, Kechara Forest Retreat is a significant project because it symbolizes the physical manifestation of a stepping stone to cause the swift materialization of KWPC. Additionally, KFR will also introduce a nouveau compilation of spiritual “products” to the world of Dharma.

    Aligned to Kechara’s style, the time-honored, authentic and pure Dharma practice is brought into modern day life in a package that is palatable and practical through KFR. Families can plan a worry-free retreat weekend as every member can find interest and get involved in the wide range of beneficial activities within a comfortable and safe environment.

    Thank you again, Rinpoche, for Rinpoche wisdom, compassion and skillfulness in disseminating the complete doctrine of Lama Tsongkapa.

    Thank you to Datuk May and KFR team for your creativity, commitment and hard work to cause the continuous progress of KFR.

  78. Thierry on Apr 17, 2012 at 4:46 pm

    KFR looks very nice, far away from the lights of the city for a true re-sourcing, a place where we are one with nature.
    Perfect for retreats!
    What a great project this is, what great fun it must be to plant and gets hands dirty for such a meaningful purpose. The volunteers sure look like they are having a great time!

    • William on Apr 17, 2012 at 8:09 pm

      Thierry,
      The place is beautiful, especially the view of the mountain! Quick, volunteer yourself to help.

  79. Pastor Susan on Apr 17, 2012 at 3:20 pm

    Thank you for all the lovely pictures, captions and update of progress. Datuk May has so much experience doing development. How beautiful that Datuk May now uses her experience and guides the young people to build KFR.. a development that will bring about so much happiness, a space that will be life changing for many people from around the world.

    Everyone else’s contribution is no less and greatly appreciated to contribute towards this spiritual oasis in our region.

    May Rinpoche’s vision manifest quickly and beneficial works spread far and wide! May all necessary resources be available for KFR to be built!

  80. Mei Fong on Apr 17, 2012 at 1:04 pm

    This forest setup is going to be so exciting as I can see myself doing pujas and meditation there. I have always like the greens and this will be an ultimate destination for me. Thank you everyone who have help to make this happen. With folded hands, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    • James Long on Apr 18, 2012 at 9:31 am

      Yes, it is very exciting and can’t wait for it to come up. Datuk May and team are working so hard for our Kechara in Forest. Very nice to do various puja which we learned from holy sangha from Gaden in the cooling Forest!

  81. JP on Apr 17, 2012 at 11:41 am

    Kechara Forest Retreat is a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle of KL city. The air was surprisingly cooling and pollution FREE! I saw many types of birds including a wild pheasant. It’s definitely a great place to do retreats.

    DM, Martin, Joe and Jeffery have worked very hard to put up the temporary cabins and tents. It’s not easy logistically coz it’s in the middle of the jungle. And to all the volunteers who worked on the garden, it looks very beautiful! I could see a lot of love and care put into it.

    Those of you who’s not been there, look out for opportunities to volunteer at KFR!

    • DR on May 7, 2012 at 10:50 pm

      That’s right JP. There were so many nights when they worked late into the nights even before the electricity was installed. Datuk May, the Head of KFR Project is an amazing leader with years of experience in building big development projects. With her great stewardship, I think we can be all moving there by end of next year.

      I watched the video over so many times. It is so heart warming to see the enthusiasm and team work in every part of the work. When this place is up, everyone who has had a part in its development will be so proud of the place as they have contributed in one way or another.

      And to others who are reading this, get involved now. Be a part of the legacy!

  82. JG on Apr 17, 2012 at 11:27 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us all the update and convey it to all over the corners. Here we can see, this is the beautiful of Kechara Forest Retreat! Everyone planting the plants , planting the dharma seeds for future generations. Rejoice for all dharma sister and brother in cultivating all capacity to this greeny land . The more seeds it can create, the more it plant in the depths of one’s conciousness.

    Rejoice ^^

  83. ngeowchin on Apr 17, 2012 at 10:04 am

    KFR is a vision of Rinpoche which is transforming into reality , thanks to the blessings of Rinpoche and the leadership of this planet’s first 10 Star General !
    It is a project where all Kecharians , sponsors and friends can contribute and benefit spiritually, physically, mentally and environmentally. The exciting thing is that the best is yet to come . If we are all smiles now putting effort and rejoicing to see Chamang come up , we will see bigger smiles in everyone when this Chamang effort becomes the cause for its mother to arise – KWPC.
    Lets join hands to ensure the success of the above holy projects.

  84. Lim Tat Ming on Apr 17, 2012 at 1:07 am

    We can imagine waking up early at 4 am daily to do our Guru Yoga of Tsongkhapa and Setrap at the KFR Gompa. Then this is followed by performing many full-length prostrations at the KFR Gompa. Then we proceed to circumambulate at the Vajrayogini Stupa many times. At the Butter-lamp house, we offer hundreds of butter-lamps to the Buddhas.

    In between these practices, we do Vipassana meditation by strolling in the forest trails of KFR. The flora and fauna of KFR is such a sight to behold as we continue walking around the forest. We could hear the beautiful sound of birds and other wildlife as we breathe the fresh cool air and submerge our mind in the soothing energy of the forest.

    The imagination above is way too simplistic. It is not an imagination or a dream anymore! It is a reality that Kechara Forest Retreat is offering to everyone and not just only Kecharians.

    KFR is a sanctuary for the development of our mind and body. It is a place for us to get away from the busyness and stressful city life.

    Thank You Rinpoche for the teaching on preciousness of our human life and doing something meaningful to our life now before it ends.

    I am very happy and rejoice that all of us have the golden opportunity to contribute in one way or another to KFR. KFR is another of Rinpoche’s skillful means for us to accumulate lot of merits and to transform our mind for our future happiness.

    Yes I am very excited about this just like every other Kecharians and can’t wait to visit and experience KFR physically!

    Thank You Rinpoche for the inspiration and blessing for Kechara Forest Retreat.

    Thank You Datuk May, Martin Chow, Joe Ang and Jeffrey Yee for your hard work in manifesting KFR so soon.

    Thank You to the liaisons who are working very hard to raise funds for KFR.

    Thank You to others who have contributed in one way or another towards this project so far.

  85. David Loh on Apr 17, 2012 at 12:25 am

    Am so looking forward to see the finished product! A perfect place for retreat and some peace. Keep up the good work people!

  86. June Tang ksjc on Apr 16, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us all the updates about Kechara Forest Retreat through blog post and our email.Rejoice to everyone have opportunity to make efforts to the project !! May KFR can manifest as soon as possible and can benefit more people..!!

  87. Loh Seng Piow on Apr 16, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    As Buddha advised King Sangyal regarding the benefits of building monasteries. “Any human being building Buddha’s temple, even while still in samsara, in future lives will always have incredible wealth, like radiating palaces, like the king of devas.” That includes power and so forth. “In all the lives you will have happiness, will get good rebirth, and will create good karma in the next lives. While experiencing the result for ten millions of eons, all the time you will enjoy your life, with joyful mind, with no sorrow, and in the end will achieve the state of peace, the cessation of suffering and its causes.”

    The great Indian yogi, Nagden Pawo said, “To establish a temple for the mighty aryan beings (Sangha) of Shakyamuni Buddha, soothing somebody with the words, ‘please help to build,’ ‘please donate,’ ‘please give a hand with the work’…”—any group of people who help to build a monastery, even during sleep, while standing up, eating, whatever they do, the merit of building the temple continuously increases, immeasurably.

    Likewise, when we help in building Chamang – Kechara Forest Retreat, the merits will be the same as what Buddha has mentioned before.

    • MayOng on Apr 17, 2012 at 12:45 pm

      Thank you, Seng Piow for these powerful reminders for us all to put our words into action, and not just talk. It is time for all of us to ‘walk the talk’.

      • Datuk May on Apr 17, 2012 at 2:05 pm

        Dear Seng Piow, Thank you for the powerful teaching on generosity and merits of donation in order to benefit others and yourself being benefited the most. Wonderful reminder.

  88. Paris on Apr 16, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    VERY VERY exciting for the growth of even more activity… Exciting also for this is the first venue where activity will happen and grow away from the city. Get far away from the madding crowd to a bit of peace and quiet – needed as much for the body as for the mind. This will be an amazing place for retreats, meditations, as well as active work (for when will Kechara ever be a quiet place!).

    Everyone should be a part of making this grow. So many of the world’s largest centers start in this way, and become phenomenal in bringing benefit, peace, teachings and compassion to people everywhere. Let this be the next headquarters of Kechara, so we have one in the city and one away in the forest.

    Then, next step, KWPC.

    Then, conquer the world!

    • Ana on Apr 17, 2012 at 11:05 am

      This is going to be huge in a Global way! If Kechara ever needs a Spanish Translator, please think of me. I may be in Toronto but I am more than happy to donate hours to translate the wonderful teachings, and talks and literature from Rinpoche and KH in general. To bring Dharma to Spanish speaking people is becoming important to meI am so excited that this massive project is getting started! Blessings!

    The scenery of Kechara Forrest Retreat is breath taking… I had always love nature surroundings and with this wondeful project kicked start, I really can’t wait for the time that I can attend Rinpoche’s dharma talks, or do my meditations and pujas up there.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this retreat project, thank you to everyone who have involved directly in setting the place for us… THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.

    p/s: wow… Datin Lucy! You really rough it up eh. I’m sure those plants will grow beautifully with all the cares and love of Lucy & the gang 🙂

  90. leu chong hin on Apr 16, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Thanks for handwork and actions.

  91. tsemtulku on Apr 16, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    You know I am not exactly that excited or happy to be alive. After all what is the point to exist in eating, sleeping, fighting to pay bills, ageing, getting sick, seeing some new sights, in and out of prison-like relationships, endless emotions and it’s useless expressions, ups and downs and then you die anyway. I don’t see the point of doing this for ten, twenty, thirty, fourty or more years. After all it’s the same thing year after year ending up nowhere. It almost feels like some sort of self defeating and glorified cage. I have always been very pessimistic about living because I see it as a huge redundant useless round of activities that lead nowhere. With this Chamang headquarters of our lineage arising, it gives me something exciting to wake up to. To know what it is for..the purpose, the goal and the liberation, the benefits and the lasting results makes me want to be alive to do this. Building a headquarters for our Dharma lineage is rejuvenating and has a purpose. Anything else pales next to this. I hope everyone will consider my wishes in this and truly participate. Not in words. Not in future tense wishes, not in empty gestures, but truly get involved and get it done. After all the uselessness of life and it’s end (death) doesn’t just affect me, it affects all of us…so this project is a good counter. Tsem Rinpoche

  92. Karen C. on Apr 16, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Are you tired of living in concrete jungle? Have you ever thought of getting a place to release all your stress, frustration and anger that arise from your hectic life? Here comes Kechara Forest Retreat- an oasis of serenity amidst the bustling city.. where you can find your inner peace here.

    Thank you Datuk May and her hardworking team for such a great job. Thank you for the updates William.

  93. ERIC LEE KSJC on Apr 16, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    May the project smoothly progress!! I can’t wait to walk on the meditation path with friends and family. Let’s contribute more to make it happen swiftly!

    Nestled in the foothills of Chamang at Bentong, about an hour’s drive from Kuala Lumpur, our own Kechara forest Retreat is going to be born. A private healthy grassroot retreat is said to have a profound benefit to one’s whole being mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. It provides powerful benefits in terms of purifying one’s existence, increasing energy and vitality. In the near future, long or short-term accomodation, or a spiritual journey deep into the jungles, Kechara Forest Retreat at Chamang can be made a private getaway haven for your needs! All credits and thanks should go to our Datuk May, without whom, this dream would not have been born.

  102. Lim KSJC on Apr 16, 2012 at 12:43 pm

    Wow, we can visualize that we will have all the facilities to do offering as in Gaden soon. So wonderful, and thanks for all volunteers and especially Datuk May with fold hands…

  103. lewkwanleng on Apr 16, 2012 at 11:51 am

    With the hardwork of everyone, Kechara is now on her way to build the forest retreat, so that people can come chill out in this retreat center in the forest.

    Please contribute whatever you have to participate in this project! Don’t miss out the fun in building a legacy!

  104. Andrew chiam on Apr 16, 2012 at 11:33 am

    Its going to be a very beautiful place for the mind and soul. I salute all the Kecharians who had worked so hard to make it possible.
    This is going to mark another major milestone in the history of Kechara success.

  105. MayOng on Apr 16, 2012 at 11:12 am

    Having the 1st Kechara Forest Retreat in the mountains is the best offering Kecharians can make to Rinpoche and I am estatic, happy and rejoice for all beings. All beings on the forest retreat land will be blessed by Rinpoche. Students can also go there to do quiet retreats in this wonderful surrounding. How blessed are we!

  106. patsy on Apr 16, 2012 at 10:43 am

    Another historical event for Kechara. Through the hard work and dedicated team under Datuk May Phng, KFR will manifest soon for all to enjoy. It will be great place for retreats and Rinpoche will soon have a Ladrang in this beautiful forest!

    Thank you, William for all the beautiful photos in your updates.

  107. skyong on Apr 16, 2012 at 9:47 am

    Thank you Rinpoche and Datuk May’s team of your time and effort that now we are able to build a forest retreat to benefit more people. 🙂

  108. Irene Lim on Apr 16, 2012 at 7:31 am

    Dear Rinpoche, the report on gardeners planting flowers at Chamang brings me back to memory lane. During the year 1997/98 when we rented the bungalow house at SEA Park for Rinpoche, I was the only garderner planting flowers along the front garden to offer Rinpoche. And about 15 years after which is now you have a group of more than 10 devoted garderners sweating away at our very own land planting flowers for Rinpoche. CONGRATULATIONS Rinpoche it is all the way but up! I truly rejoice. I truly rejoice I dont have to be the lone gardener any more…. he he…
    Love, irene

  109. Su Ming on Apr 16, 2012 at 1:14 am

    Datuk May and her team did a wonderful job in getting this land. After, KFR has been completed, most of us can actually do our retreat there instead among so many distraction in town. Rinpoche has mentioned that he would like to send quite a few of us on a retreat however, at this current time, we do not have the right infrastructure.

    Most of all, I am very excited that we will be inviting Rinpoche to his own mountain ladrang. It has been a long time that Rinpoche has long to be in the mountains as it is a very strong imprint from Rinpoche previous lives.

    Offering to the Lama in this case Rinpoche is the highest form of offering the organisation can make as stated in the tantric text. And by this offering, we will create the causes to make Kechara bigger and we will be able to benefit more.

    Tune in for more updates

  110. William on Apr 16, 2012 at 12:51 am

    There are lots of work happening this week at KFR. The temporary shelters are coming up very nicely all thanks to the supervision of Martin and his team. The most exciting would be the Butterlamp House! We will be starting to build!!!

    I will be posting the next update with pictures very soon. Keep a look out!

  111. Adeline on Apr 16, 2012 at 12:45 am

    Nice updates and nice photos, so many trees and flowers were planted in one day very soon we will have a beautiful garden in our holy Retreat Land. May Kechara Forest Retreat will manifest smoothly and swiftly.

  112. Sock Wan on Apr 16, 2012 at 12:17 am

    I am so excited about this project. It is not just a plan but we are already working on it. Look at the mountain, the greenery, how beautiful and serene it is. I am proud to be involved. I am not good in gardening, but I can be a labour. hehe…

    Are you ready to be part of it? Take your first step by visiting us in Kechara, don’t just sit and wish and dream.

  113. Helena Chin on Apr 16, 2012 at 12:07 am

    Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…..I am sooooooooo excited about Chamang Land, very looking forward to KFR!!! Beautiful and peaceful place 🙂
    I am sooooooo wanted to help out!! Can I can I hehehe….
    I wanna thanks to all the people who are helping out.
    Datuk May, Martin and Jeffrey you guys ROCK!!!

  114. nsa on Apr 15, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    This is absolutely exciting!!! It has been a trend for Malaysians to go to places like Japan, China, Taiwan etc for Buddhist retreats… but with Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR), very soon the trend will be the other way around! And it would be so much more convenient for Malaysians to go on retreats when KFR is up. Currently I am not aware of any other Buddhist retreat land in Malaysia.. could KFR be the first of its kind?? Judging from the design of our current buildings, I’m sure that the gompa, ladrang, butter lamp house, dormitories and private office at KFR will be just as beautiful and tastefully designed. I would love to go to KFR and exercise my green thumbs there!

    • William on Apr 15, 2012 at 11:22 pm

      KFR will definitely be the first retreat with a Butterlamp house. And the construction of the butterlamp house will start this week!

  115. Henry ooi on Apr 15, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    I’m sure many of us are eagerly awaiting the day when KFR is built and ready, it will not be long. I would love to bring my family there for the weekend, to be in nature and be with nature and 10 minutes away by car is a refreshing waterfall for the ear, sight, smell and sense.intsPon

  116. ECheah on Apr 15, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    What a lovely place, a prelude to KWPC. Bentong/Raub is famed for having the best durians in Malaysia!

  117. nicholas on Apr 15, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    It was a great and meritorious day for the 11 of us to be able to put our feet at this wonderful land. The volunteers are so great and they just do it! with no but. They are tired but with joy. They want the retreat forest so much and even asking when is the next trip. I felt so blessed that we are able to make such great offering to our Lama.

    I’m so glad to see some of the volunteers reschedule their plan to make join this trip.

    Rejoice and may Kechara Forest Retreat manifest in soonest time. Can’t wait!

  118. Margaretlee on Apr 15, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    How meritorious you all have planting the furture garden in KFR!

    Rinpoche always have skillful ways to bring dharma to us, be it planting trees and plants and sweating all day long outdoor to blogging on the web in an air-conditioned room, it is all for our learning process and training of our minds.

    I wish to join you all in the next round, roll up my sleeves and show you some feminie power! LOL!

    Thank you William Chua for such a nice updates. Thank you Datuk May for your leadership and your 3 hardworking musketeers, Martin, Joe and Jeffrey.

    Danny Bowman’s case is extreme, more of a mental problem instead of a vanity issue. However, many people around us are addicted to taking selfie. Even though it might be just showing off their beauty to gain attention, it should not be dismissed lightly. Because of their excessive love for themselves, they lack the empathy for others. This is the real issue. When someone place all the attention on themselves and expect others to do the same, it is against the practice of Bodhicitta. And if it not corrected at early stage, it will become a habituation and strong imprint that will also affect them in their next life.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this sharing on Dr. Joona Repo’s work. In his book “Phabongka Dechen Nyingpo: His Collected Works and the Guru-Deity-Protector Triad,” Dr. Joona Repo’s impartial recollections of Pabongka Rinpoche serves to debunk certain perception people have towards this erudite master, who was brought into question because of his emphasis on Dorje Shugden and what was deemed as sectarianism practices.

    Through presenting the vastness and diversity of the works by Pabongka Rinpoche and records of his teaching against sectarianism, this book empirically presents a balanced view of Pabongka Rinpoche against those baseless allegations. The fact that Pabongka Rinpoche wrote extensively about Vajrayogini and had visions of Heruka proved that he is no ordinary Lama.

    Pabongka Rinpoche was, in fact, the reincarnation of a well-known scholar Changkya Rolpay Dorje who was the Royal Tutor to the Chinese Emperors. Because of this sensitivity, Pabongka RInpoche was not recognized his lineage by the power of the day. This in itself is a hint that there are more than meet the eyes.

    I do loves these quotes…
    Remember, if we wish to make an offering to our teacher, no offering is greater than that of our own dharma practice..~Geshe Tsutrim Gyeltsen

    Never abandon your spiritual teacher no matter how many inner obstacles you need to overcome……~Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these powerful quotes which will change our lives and should not be ignored.

    Its a interesting post with 2 giants countries discussing over movie market. Hollywood producers who are increasingly looking to tap the country’s fast-growing box office into China market.However there is restriction .They hopes China will increase the quota and the share of revenues more in line with international markets. And even has openly criticized China on trade.China is likely to raise the quota of imported films as part of recent trade talks.
    China are trying to protect its growing domestic film industry from Hollywood domination. The most best measure is the strict quota limiting the number.
    Brad Pitt was back in China nearly 20 years after being baned over a film about Tibet .Time has changed China policy on celebrities entering China.

    This article reminds me of how, in general, people understand the need to have a strong and fit psychic body but rarely willing to take action to go through the training. Let alone Dharma training of the mind which is much more tougher. Because our habituation has conditioned us to perceive and think a certain way, and the need to unlearn and relearn is not part of our program.

    To me, understanding the need to be trained and having the courage to go through the training is a process in itself. The mind has to be conditioned to understand the need of the training which is to eliminate the “i” and the importance of the training which is to speed up the journey of crossing the ocean of samsara.

    Most importantly, we must recognize it is very rare for us to be in a perfect human condition, meet the dharma and the perfect Guru, therefore, we must not imagine that we have time by thinking there will always be tomorrow. Actually this is the conversation in my mind sometimes… lol.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this article.

    A beautiful true story shared, I have seen patients suffered under cancer treatment ,at times I felt sad for them and lost of words at times. Most practitioners I have come across thinks of their profit but did not take a real effort to understand their patients pain. When we care for our patients, encourage them really makes a big difference in their life. In my line of duty I have seen many patients suffered in pain, fear, anxiety and very emotional. When we are in the patients shoe,, we can understand and feels the pain as well. As a health provider its only my duty to provide words of encouragement, help and care for them.
    Dr.Richard Teo spoke the very truth ,to inspire the younger generations of furture doctors when embark on their journey to be in health professioner ,to think of others too. Do agree with Dr.Richard Teo in private practice doctors made lots of money but at the end of the day they are not happy in life. We go through life attaching to things, wanting them to last forever. But they don’t last anyway. .Over time, we just came to accept that all good things in life must end. Nothing is impermanent
    Since we all know death is inevitable. To Live a meaningful life till to the fullness to learn and practice Dharma ,to transform ourselves, lighten up and makes us a better person.If you want happiness for a lifetime, helping, caring for others can change our life. We should always appreciate people when they are alive.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these inspiring post and hope more people will be inspired . Saluting Dr Richard Teo, who have touched the lives of thousands on views of life at the end of his lives.At the time of writing he has passed away since in 2012.May he have a swift rebirth.

    Amazing worth travelling there to see for myself such a holy place. Being there will be a tremendous blessing as it is one of the places where Manjushri the Buddha of Wisdom’s energy abides.Wow ….As a natural reserve it is the home of China’s three holy mountains, which are Jampelyang, Chenresig and Chana Dorje.Looks very beautiful and the scenic views were just amazing to be there.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing ,i would like to travel there someday to enjoy the beauty of these Holy mountains.

    Past few years, my grandmother,Aunty, Uncle passed away. I feel sad but this also create awareness to me that death is the final destination of everyone in samsara. Practicing of Dharma really help me in knowing that we must achieve final liberation and no more rebirth.
    Besides that, we must appreciate the moment we gather with anyone and share Dharma to them.
    Thanks Datuk May to remind me that to spend more time with the love one. I really grateful to my family and friends.

    For steven d –

    Dear Steven, Thank you for your question. I appreciate your wish to become better, improve your health and to continue your journey.

    In regards to your question, there are many dimensions that need to be addressed in order to ‘assign’ a specific Buddha’s practice for a person. Some of the factors are:

    1. Temperament
    2. Malady
    3. karmic affinity
    4. Immediate pressing needs
    5. Long term needs
    6. If the person has been in dharma and understand dharma well
    7. How much time a person has daily or in general for practice/what other practices they have
    8. Living conditions (has space and quiet or with busy family)
    9. If the person is willing to take vows as there are ‘higher’ and more in-depth practices if vows can be taken
    10. How many or what other sadhanas/practices is already being done. Sometimes we can intensify one of the practices the person is already doing.

    These are a few of the factors I would examine before I suggest a practice for someone.


    Remember to always go for a qualified medical treatment in your country or place of residence and then with this treatment you can apply various spiritual practices in addition to the medical treatment.

    Spiritual practices can help heal as they purify the karma fueling the problem but medical treatment takes care of the problem that is karmically already opened. So important to do both. By doing practice you can ‘lessen’ the problem either by intensity or duration. and sometime get well. If you ask me to give a general sweeping answer for the general crowd or for a person I don’t know much about, I would suggest these practices:

    1. Black Manjushri http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=70674
    2. Avolokitesvara (Chenresig) (four armed, thousand armed, etc)
    3. Loma Gyonma http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=64691
    4. Medicine Buddha http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=44277

    Any of the the above four practices is helpful in general and overall. You don’t have to do all but just one would suffice and according to your tradition of Buddhism. You do not need initiation or take on vow commitment but you can do these practices daily and or in full retreat. Would be good to be vegetarian with good motivation as less harm done to other sentient beings directly and indirectly will help the healing process. Read up on the practices well before starting. Much information on the internet.

    It is good to learn up on the 9 round breath meditation daily also. Take 20 minutes daily to do this breath meditation. You can do the breath meditation first and then any of the four practices you choose or just breath meditation alone. (Theravadin Buddhist can just do the 9 round breath meditations daily and be consistent with this practice and you will see your mind release, open up and become calmer. You can do this breath meditation no matter who you are and if you are ill or healthy. This meditation has many benefits you can research and learn up. No ill effects with this meditation even if done ‘wrongly’.) Breath meditation is highly recommended by me for all persons both spiritual or not, young or elderly, Buddhist or otherwise as using the breath powerful and can be done anywhere and anytime. Breath is fundamental and we must breathe, so this is using meditation to manipulate the breath to heal our bodies and bring some peace to our minds. Done daily is highly beneficial.

    I hope this sincerely helps you. I send you my good wishes and for your healing. We all need healing. May you be happy, well and achieve your goals, Tsem Rinpoche

    Namaste,

    Thank you for sharing all this beautiful buddha images, prayers and information for so many to learn from and be guided.

    Question for Rinpoche:

    What practice, prayer or deity (‘s mantra) would you advise for the uninitiated in regards to healing the causes of trauma, ptsd, dissociation and grounding into your physical body?

    I got diagnosed with PTSD 6 yrs ago, at age 29, right after my spiritual awakening after which all the past rauma revisited me in the course of 2 weeks.

    I wasn’t under the guidance of a lama or teacher at that time and still am not.

    Are there any practices you would advise? As there are so many people with trauma and PTSD (10% of the population in Western countries) , there would be so many to benefit from your wise words.

    I have read that certain deities have more affinity for certain diseases/imbalances. Are there any deities that are specifically related to releasing trauma or the above-mentioned afflictions/asymptoms.

    In love

    Steven

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.

I pity men who occupy themselves exclusively with the transitory in things and lose themselves in the study of what is perishable, since we are here for this very end- that we may make the perishable imperishable, which we can do only after we have learned how to approach both.~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

(This quote is very powerful from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. He seems to be a powerful thinker and can think beyond daily and ordinary thoughts. Like I shared, only the study of dharma is going to lead to the imperishable. Any other studies of this world only are temporarily beneficial which is perishable. Of course he is not referring to dharma, but he realized ordinary pursuits leads to perishability. If he knew dharma, he would see the vastness of Buddha\'s omniscience.  Tsem Rinpoche)

One of the nicest Taras I\'ve seen. I like her shade of green and the lotus on the left which is lower as her hand is lower so it\'s very balanced looking. Her face looks young, motherly, kind and yet regal.

(1st photo) Kyabje Lati Rinpoche in the centre and Ven Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende on the extreme right. After the unfair ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners was forcibly instituted by Tibetan leadership onto the people and monasteries, the monasteries split. Over 600 monks from Gaden Shartse Monastery left and set up Shar Gaden Monastery. The Tibetan leadership did their best to get the authorities to close Shar Gaden Monastery but Shar Gaden had registered so there was nothing Tibetan leadership can do. It was very sad. Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende left Gaden Shartse Monastery to be the abbot of the newly formed Shar Gaden Monastery in South India where they can continue Dorje Shugden practice. Prior to the ban Lati Rinpoche and Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende can meet up, share and be close as they all had been very close. After the ban this was not allowed anymore. Dorje Shugden and non-Dorje Shugden people had to be segregated. They cannot mix. The previous prime minister of the Tibetan exiled government said that Dorje Shugden people and non Dorje Shugden people are like the mustache and the mouth and it has to be separated. Tsem Rinpoche

You can see in this 2nd photo, Kyabje Lati Rinpoche blessing a child and Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende standing next to the child. The monasteries were happy, united and had good samaya with each other prior to the ban. The ban destroyed everything and unity and harmony. It is very sad to see this.

ou can save this rare thangka of 1,000 armed Heruka. I\'ve never seen this thangka or any of this form before and it\'s the first time. You can print out or keep or use. I found this online and it\'s beautiful. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche mentioned this Heruka 30 years ago to us and since then I have never seen this in painting or statue at all till now. He has many legs and many faces too. Very special and unique. Seeing Heruka or thinking of Heruka plants the seeds of enlightenment in our mindstream. Tsem Rinpoche

This is Venerable Lhakpa Tsering from Tibet. He has passed away a few years back of natural causes and as he was older. He was one of the high ranking and official oracle of Dorje Shugden, Namka Barzin, Kache Marpo and several other high protectors. He was famous in Tibet for his correct trance of Dorje Shugden and extremely powerful clairvoyance advice of Dorje Shguden. He has been taking trance since Tibet. In 1959 he left Tibet for India and settled in Kalimpong. He continued to take trance in Kalimpong of Dorje Shugden for government officials, local persons, high lamas, monasteries, nuns, monks and even foreigners. For over 40 years his wonderful oracular ability to take trance and give advice and prophecies has benefited so many people. He was trained and blessed as an oracle by the previous Dromo Geshe Rinpoche of Sera Jey Monastery. I\'ve had a chance to stay at his house, meet him and see him in trance. It was a great blessing and amazing experience. Tsem Rinpoche

Why seek anything else when you have the illustrious practice of Vajra Yogini from the lineage of the Crazy Wisdom Mahasiddha Naropa? Nothing in samsara created by ordinary men can surpass the practice of Vajra Yogini elucidated to us by the Buddha. Nothing in samsara’s knowledge no matter how incredible can surpass the knowledge embodied in the dharma by the Buddha. Samsara knowledge is limited. When we study Buddha’s knowledge (Dharma) it guarantees our future with no limitations. Spend more time studying dharma than samsaric knowledge. Why even compare? Surrender samsara as death and loss are it’s only results and engage in Dharma practice all the way. Vajra Yogini is dharma and dharma is Vajra Yogini. Give everything for Vajra Yogini’s practice. Start now as a preliminary practice even without initiation (blog article: Starting on Vajra Yogini Now- http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=4395). Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

This is a powerful picture of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche and the current incarnation of Trijang Rinpoche meeting together in the year 2000 when Trijang Rinpoche was 18. All three lamas are Dorje Shugden practitioners. In fact Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen was the one that first encouraged my practice of Dorje Shugden when I was 16 years old when I joined his beautiful Thubten Dhargye Ling centre in Los Angeles. I lived with Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen for 8 years before proceeding to Gaden Monastery in South India. Later Kyabje Zong Rinpoche came to our Los Angeles centre and granted sogtae (permission ceremony) to practice Dorje Shugden for life as requested by Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen had tremendous faith in Trijang Rinpoche. 

Kyabje Lati Rinpoche was innovative, dedicated and very much focused on bringing dharma to many. He had tremendous faith in Dorje Shugden as I had the honour to meet him many times. He would seek advice from Dorje Shugden many times via the oracle of Gaden Monastery. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen and Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche have since passed away while the current Trijang Rinpoche is a perfect lineage holder and practitioner of Dharma while he keeps Dorje Shugden as his personal protector as he has done so for many lifetimes. 

This is a powerful and beautiful picture of three great lamas of Buddha’s lineage and also of Gaden Monastery. ~Tsem Rinpoche

It is a very sad and poignant picture because just a short while after this picture was taken, Mumu passed away with all of us present. This was the last picture of my little Mumu alive. We immediately did puja for Mumu and he is sorely missed by many as he touched our lives deeply. Tsem Rinpoche

    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)

I will never, ever abandon any teachings, practices, advice or instructions given to me by Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/great-lamas-masters/kyabje-zong-rinpoches-advice-on-dorje-shugdens-practice.html

    I bow to the feet of my glorious Kyabje Zong Rinpoche!
    To hear the holy lama's voice, to be in his presence or even to see his form requires us to have the merits. To implement the teachings of the lama is not easy but not implementing the teachings only leads to more difficulties. I was fortunate to be in the presence of my lama and have kept my samaya clean all these years. To see, hear and remember your holy voice and teachings I feel grateful. I only hope by keeping my samaya clean with you now my lama, I may meet you in future lives again without distraction by samsara. I wish my stay in samsara to be shorter and it is possible by your teachings. May I practice and bring your teachings to many tirelessly as many need it desperately. May I not be disappointed by their unruly behaviour towards me and at times I lose strength, but I think of you. For in samsara everything has disappointed me and will continue to as everything in samsara is a forced illusion. I bow to the feet of my glorious Kyabje Zong Rinpoche! ~Tsem Rinpoche

    jason asked: what is the significance of a solar eclipse in terms of sadhana practice besides multiplying merit
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Jason, Thank you for your question. It is good to see you here. As you have rightly pointed out, during solar eclipses the merit from engaging in virtuous actions are greatly multiplied. Therefore there are many prescribed practices one can do during these times to generate a lot of merit, such as engaging in prayers, making abundant offerings, animal liberation, taking precepts for the day, etc. In terms of sadhana practice, the main benefit here would be the multiplication of merits generated. However on a tantric level, since the movements of the planets are linked to the movement of energy within the universe, and therefore one’s body, there would be subtle changes in the psychic winds within the body as well. On the whole, the patterns of the universe are mirrored within the psychic winds in the body as well. The tantric system that deals with these movements in the most detail is the Kalachakra Tantra, which you can read more about here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/tibetan-astrology/introduction-to-tibetan-astrology.html In the Kalachakra Tantra it is said that when a solar eclipse occurs, merit is either multiplied a thousand, ten-thousand times, or a hundred-thousand times. The sun and the moon are linked with the psychic winds, channels and drops with tantric practice. According to the Kalachakra Tantra everyone breathes 21,600 time every day and our minds are said to ride on the winds within our bodies. The majority of the winds within out body are karmic winds, in that they come about and are affected by karmic tendencies. During an eclipse however, more wisdom winds are said to prevail in the body. As these circulate in the body, doing Dharma practice, especially tantric practices in which you use these winds, one can achieve spiritual attainments at a speed that would not normally be possible. In traditional mythology, there is a celestial body known as Rahu. This isn’t actually a physical planet, but a node on the orbit of the moon. When Rahu appears, he is said to swallow the sun for some time, this is the ancient explanation of a solar eclipse. Rahu is also known as the “dragon’s head”. Within the Kalachakra Tantra, practitioners use Rahu to bring the sun and the moon under control. As the sun is associated with psychic channels on the right side of the body, and the moon with psychic channels on the left side of the body, what this means is that the practitioner controls these energies and brings them into the central psychic channel instead. Thereby the solar eclipse is said to mirror a tantric yogi’s ability to bring the psychic energies of the left and right side into the central channel. Once in the central channel the yogi can engage in the higher psychic energy meditations in order to gain spiritual attainments and even enlightenment. For an everyday practitioner therefore, the main benefit of practicing during a solar eclipse is the multiplication of merit. For a tantric practitioner however, it is a time that they can make use of the energies of nature to boost their practices. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Todd asked: Does Rinpoche have any information on the deity Rakta Yamari, who is believed to be an emanation of Manjushri?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Todd, Thank you for your interesting question. Rakta Yamari is indeed a wrathful emanation of Manjushri, in the form of a yidam or meditational deity belonging to the Anuttarayoga, or highest tantra, class of deities. The practice has been incorporated into all four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism: the Nyingma, Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug. Generally speaking some of the wrathful forms of Manjushri can be classified into three groupings, the Rakta (blood-red), Krishna (blue-black), and Vajrabhairava (adamantine terrifying). Since Rakta Yamari is therefore a classification of deities, it would be hard to give information here on all of them. The specific forms of Rakta Yamari differ in how the main figure appears and the number of other deities in the mandala. Of particular note, is that each of these forms and their practices has their own lineage of practice as well. Whilst there are forms of all three classifications within the four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism, certain lineages place more emphasis on a particular form than others. For example, within the Gelug lineage emphasis is placed on Vajrabhairava Yamantaka, of which there are two forms in particular that are practiced: 13-deity Yamantaka, and Solitary Hero Yamantaka. In fact Vajrabhairava Yamantaka is one of the three main Anuttarayoga Tantra deities practiced in the Gelug lineage, which we follow, alongside the Akshobhyavajra variant of Guhyasamaja and Chakrasamvara. There are two important lineages of Rakta Yamari practice: the 13-deity Rakta Yamari, and the 5-deity Rakta Yamari practice. Both of these practices can be traced back to an important lineage holder, the Indian Mahasiddha Virupa. In the case of the 5-deity Rakta Yamari lineage, he was taught the practice by a wisdom dakini. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Aldric Wilson DuXing asked: How can the alleged "DiSanShr" "Dorje Chang Fo" Yi Yun Gao be the actual incarnation of Buddha Dipankara Buddha?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Aldric Wilson DuXing, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, I do not know much about Yi Yun Gao to be able to comment on this. However, within Buddhism we do believe that the Buddhas, out of their compassion appear in human form to help sentient beings in whatever way they can. Within Tibetan Buddhism there is a long history of recognising great masters as the physical body emanations (also known as tulkus) of the Buddhas. The logic behind this is that the Buddhas are all compassionate and so help sentient beings in any and all means that they can. This would obviously include taking the physical form of a human. To say that the Buddhas cannot or do not do this, would be limiting the abilities of the enlightened beings, which goes against the scriptures. In fact, in the scriptures it states that Buddhas can emanate out in countless different forms at the same time. This includes animate beings, such as humans, animals, etc., and also inanimate objects such as bridges, or other things. These emanations, or incarnations if in human form, can be recognised by those who have the ability to perceive the enlightened beings, such as highly attained masters or other emanations themselves. That is why you see only the highest masters within the Tibetan Buddhist traditions recognise others as incarnations of the Buddhas. Other methods of confirming this can include checking with an enlightened Dharma protector, such as Dorje Shugden, when in trance of a qualified oracle. Those who really are emanations of the enlightened beings do not actually need to be recognised as such, as they will always help others no matter if they are recognised or not. However the recognition of such beings is more for us, as practitioners to gain merit by helping them achieve their goal of helping other sentient beings. But as I mentioned earlier, these beings do not self-proclaim themselves but are recognised as such by other highly attained masters who are trustworthy and really work for the cause of helping others by upholding and practicing the holy teachings of Lord Buddha. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Anonymous asked: Sorry about the link not working. They can be found at dharmawheel.net and then looked under Tibetan Buddhism and then under topics which are under all the other lineage topics. Since this is recent, the title "Crazy Scandal somewhat related to Gelug hitting Taiwan" should come up. But anyway, here are the sources in that case: https://ladakh2017blog.wordpress.com/2017/08/12/mary-jin-gebis/ https://maisonneuve.org/article/2013/06/18/when-monks-come-town/ https://ladakh2017blog.wordpress.com/2017/08/14/bw-dorje-shugden/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ad355FqDQuo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzvPhv_eldk http://www.blisswisdom.org/statement/1854-1006 https://ladakh2017blog.wordpress.com/2017/07/24/dalai-lama-speaks-to-chinese-devotees-about-bliss-and-wisdom/

    Anonymous asked: Hi, although this is not a question, I would like to bring awareness towards a particular cult in China and Taiwan that has been having scandals with their leader, Mary Jin. The cult has been defaming the Dalai Lama and has begun supporting Shugden here even though that's not really bad. However, I would like to bring attention so they may not begin corrupting the Buddhists here. Even though I used a dharmawheel website, it has links to its sources: https://dharmawheel.net/viewtopic.php?f=40
    pastor answered: Dear Anonymous, Thank you for bringing this to our attention, however the link you provided does not work. I do not know anything about this particular person or their organisation, so I really can’t say much. However, there are some people out there who use religion for their personal gain, and twist the teachings to suit their greed. These sorts of people are often embroiled in scandals and the like and often have views that go against common sense. That is why it is very important to check that a teacher is qualified, is practicing, and is teaching the Dharma as it should be according to the scriptures. All students are encouraged do to so and this in mentioned clearly in the scriptures themselves. The actions of a teacher should be in line with actions laid out in the scriptures and their views should match the logic laid out in the scriptures as well. Once we see a teacher’s qualities, and we have made sure that what they practice is real and genuine, we can devote ourselves to that person fully. We at Kechara, following the teachings of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, think very highly of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, as he is the emanation of the Buddha of compassion, Chenrezig. Similarly, we also believe that Dorje Shugden is the emanation of the Buddha of wisdom, Manjushri. For us, both are enlightened beings, and many practitioners all around world follow this belief as well. We are saddened to see or hear when others talk badly about either, since both are enlightened beings capable of benefiting the world tremendously. Thank you.
