Paul have been with me for many years even before I opened and started Kechara House and it’s 12 depts. They have alot of history with me and have been very loyal and hardworking people. Very nice people in fact.

Paul is in the process of making a 12ft Tsongkapa, 8ft Vajra Yogini and 8ft Setrap statues for our new prayer hall which will start renovations soon. Our Current prayer hall is too small already. The new Kh prayer hall will be able to seat 700 comfortably.

Wan will then take over from Paul and have the three statues painted and mantras put inside. To be ready for the new prayer hall.

The various depts of kh work hand in hand.

More and more people from all over Malaysia now inquiring re our statues for their centres and individual altars. Also they are sending many of their own statues for repair work, touch up or repaint. Wonderful!

    When I first saw the damage on the statue, oh wow. My heart just sank. In my mind, the pictures don’t reflect just what a state the statue was in. I seriously wondered if it could ever be repaired. How do you reform a clay statue that has disintegrated? How do you make something reappear from nothing? I can tell you from the perspective of a Ladrang member, that we waited with baited breath to see the outcome.

    When you see the statue today, it’s like nothing ever happened to it. The repair was ABSOLUTELY seamless. KSA usually engages in sewing and painting but when ‘accidents’ like this happen, then we are reminded of the level of skill of our staff in the department and the essential services they carry out.

    There are many talents in Kechara and one of them is Lily. Besides this holy statue of Zong Rinpoche, she has repaired and restored Rinpoche’s previous incarnation. She has done a wonderful job to restore this holy statue.

    It is said that creating or painting Buddha images with the correct motivation purifies negative karma associated with the body, generates long life and good health. Buddha statues are representation of the enlightened beings and with every prayer, prostration and offering made to these images, tremendous merits will be accumulated by those who are involved in creating or painting of these images.

  6. Wan Wai Meng on Dec 23, 2012 at 4:21 am

    Not many buddhist organisations have an arts department. I have seen how KSA brings art to the people in general and public. It was so innovative of Rinpoche to create a arts department that is based on spirituality!

    A Buddha statute is said to connect the owner or a potential ownner to enlightenment. Each statute be it copper, ethnic, or resin is believed to be truly brought alive by which it is painted, sewn, decorated or adorned. The selfless effort, hardworkingness and love which go into each statute represent the spiritual respect these talented people doing the restoration work at KSA has for the statute of the Devine being. KSA is actually never lacking of skillful talents who came with a heart that really cares. CONGRATULATIONS for a job well done KSA!

    Kechara Saraswati Arts (KSA) was born with the idea to merge arts with spirituality. When it started, KSA was just a small group of students “parking” themselves at Kechara Paradise SS2 – they started out with mantra rolling which were needed to be consecrated inside Buddha statues. When they outgrew the place as their activities increased, they moved to a shoplot just down the road. Now they are producing beautiful pieces of sewn brocades, colourfully painted statues, hand-made pieces of attractive beadworks and many other crafted items. Many volunteers have testified that it is very fulfilling to spend time there as they not have only collected merits through the efforts they have put in, but they found that it is the place to go to calm our mind. This is just one of Rinpoche’s way for us to collect merits while at the same time bringing out our creative side.

    When news broke that a leak in Rinpoche’s audience room in KH1 had damaged the statue of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, everyone panicked. I was thinking to myself, “Oh no, how will Rinpoche find a replacement? Can such a precious statue ever be replaced?”
    Thank you to KSA and Lily that today the statue has been restored beautifully.
    It is amazing how Dharma work, even in the context of art can bring the best talent out of anyone. Lily’s workmanship is delicate and meticulous. Imagine that she is not even “professional”. In fact, I do not think a professional could do a better job because the care level could never match the care Lily gave.
    Dharma work is all about caring for someone else more than oneself. Dharma work is all about developing selflessness and benefitting others. In Kechara, there are many avenues for anyone to develop this type of selfless caring. We have 13 departments today. If you care about helping and nurturing people you can be a part of KSK and KC. If you care about books you can be in KMP. If you care about meditation and prayers you can be involved in pujas in KH. And the list goes on and on. There is just no room for excuses not to care in Kechara because we are structured to suit all levels of people from all walks of life. All you need to have is a heart that cares, and everyone does no matter how hard they pretend not to ☺

    Kechara is never lacking of talents. There are so many different gifted individuals in this Buddhist organization, and I can only imagine it is because of its charismatic Spiritual Advisor. I dare say that there is no other Buddhist organization which caters to such a diverse group of people, with such varied interests. Kechara Saraswati Arts is one of my faves because this is where I go to get my statues ‘done up’. Beyond just ‘enhancing’ my statues, I can only enhance my own skills through the various classes that KSA holds – from kids’ painting classes to flower arrangement for adults, sewing of mala bags for the whole family and etc. KSA did such a beautiful job restoring Rinpoche’s statue of Zong Rinpoche, his Root Guru. Just by looking at the pictures, I can see that it is done with love and care. Rinpoche has always said that we can express spirituality through many ways, and one of them is through arts and craft. In KSA, we can collect so many merits by painting Buddha statues, offering jewels to the Buddha images, or in creating those holy images and many more. How very kind of our Guru to create the many ways for us to collect merits, learn and get Enlightened. Enlightenment through the Arts begins here.

    Lily Ng is another talented artist of Kechara. She had helped to repair Rinpoche’s previous incarnation statue in Kechara House earlier when it was damaged in transit.
    When Zong Rinpoche’s statue was damaged by the water leakage in Rinpoche audience room in Kechara House, every one of us thought it was a bad omen! We were so relieved when we heard from 2 senior old monks and 1 high lama from the monastery that this is actually a good omen which indicates growth and support for Rinpoche’s dharma works.
    Kechara Saraswati Arts http://www.kechara.com/ksa was the brain child of Tsem Rinpoche in bringing Tibetan arts and thangka painting for our local students. From this department, we have had many talented students emerging and it is also a place where we can calm our mind and collect merits by painting Buddha statues, rolling mantra, beautifying Buddha statues etc.
    Tsem Rinpoche had created various opportunities for every one to practice dharma and collect merits. This is one of Rinpoche’s skilful ways to bring us closer to dharma and to transform ourselves.
    Thank you Rinpoche for always watching over and caring for us.

    Beautiful Mother Tara had arrived in the holy land of Kechara Forest Retreat. It is very auspicious to have Mother Tara here, through the blessing of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche to grace us. She is very famous and popularly known for her ability to save people from different disasters. Mother Tara is also known to be efficacious in removing eight fears, namely : Fear of fire (anger, Fear of imprisonment (avarice), Fear of lions (pride), Fear of floods (attachment), Fear of elephants (wrath), Fear of demons (doubt), Fear of snakes (envy) and lastly, Fear of robbers.

    I wish that many people will pay a visit to venerate Mother Tara in Kechara Forest Retreat as well as to get blessing from her.

    Thank you Wei Tan for this invaluable insight on happiness, it is rather very subjective because happiness can be experienced and felt at different levels. For instance happiness when seeing your child becomes a champion in a race may differ from jumping with joy when one strikes a lottery. The intensity, reason and degree are however difficult to equate perhaps it is the depth and how long it last and the exhilarating factors following this eruption of happiness.
    Happiness is an intangible commodity when heightened by jubilation would linger on in a different manner and the underlying factors surrounding it and the continuity of it may perhaps differs on the time, place, temperament, environment and the people one is sharing the happiness with. Therefore, happiness is hard to define in terms of language but can only be felt momentarily.
    What is happiness then? It is just a fleeting pleasure of the mind; one cannot grasp it in the hand and hold it for long, it would ultimately dissipates and the after effect depends on one’s mental frame of mind. However, on another note it would generate positivity which would bring about a healthier mind and body.

    This is a rare and precious opportunity for candles to be offered on your behalf at the private residence of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche. The offering of light to the Three Jewels has great benefits for one’s mind including gaining clarity and intelligence, the acceleration of realisations, and greater understanding and wisdom. This exclusive light offering is also ideal for those who do not have a personal altar or are unable to make light offerings themselves.

    Yangting Dechen Ling, also known as Shugden Monastery, is thriving under the leadership of its current abbot, Venerable Geshe Tenzin Peljor, and has produced many illustrious and eminent scholar-monks including H.E. Zemey Rinpoche, Venerable Geshe Tendar Rinpoche and H.H. Yongyal Rinpoche.

    Daocheng County has a population of 32,450 of which 70%-80% are Dorje Shugden practitioners. There are many Dorje Shugden lamas and geshes in Yading too. Therefore, it is no surprise that through word of mouth, many flocked to attend Gyara Rinpoche’s teachings in Yading.

    ***Note: The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) has on many occasions stressed that Dorje Shugden practitioners are a minority. Looking at the thousands of Tibetans who gathered at Yangting Dechen Ling Monastery, it is not difficult to spot the glaring inaccuracy of the CTA’s claim!***

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing such informative and wonderful article.

    I am no expert in art but the display of painting skill by this artist is truly mesmerizing. He successfully depicted different expressions of Buddha at different circumstances. The ones that capture my attention most are (1) as Buddha shaved his hair, (2) as Buddha practiced asceticism, and (3) as Buddha gave his first teaching to the 5 disciples.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing that brings images of Buddha vividly alive.

    Absolutely encouraging to read the stories of 24 nuns and female practitioners, who break through or circumvent the religious traditions built for a patriarchal world. Aside from the biological difference, female possess the exact same (if not better) tenacity when it comes to will power and determination. And the 24 stories here show us exactly how far women can go against all odds to demonstrate the strength of their spiritual conviction. It is truly inspirational for me and I hope it is too for other fellow female.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this collection of inspiring personalities for us to look up to.

    “Let go of all attachments.

    Let go of identity to family, name, race and country.

    Let go of anger because there is a cause and you created it.

    Let go of fear because until we leave samsara, fear never ends.

    Be kind to everyone.

    Be kind to those who work hard to benefit others.

    Do not let small things detract the mind.

    Work hard and achieve within the dharma.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Martin for sharing.
    Well i remember when i was young i used to follow my mother to temples.I dont really understand anything at all just follow what she does. Really not sure if prayers do work but as i grow older i got a chance to understand through reading more Buddhism books and Rinpoche blog. I begin to know that prayers does work when we have the karma or merits. I can understand more too through Rinpoche’s teachings, pujas , Sadhanas and Dharma Work.There is still a lot more to learn as i am new to it.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    It’s indeed heartwarming to see Pastor Yek Yee and some Kecharians responding to the plight of the government workers during such trying times. It is reflective of the so many years of tutelage, guidance and love from Rinpoche’s teaching that we witness events now culminating in efforts being extended without being asked and doing it effortlessly and wholeheartedly.
    Kecharian Pastors are our hopes of our many future generations to come and we pray that this compassionate duty, care and love can be emulated by all regardless of race, creed or color. I would like to take this opportunity with my palms closed together in front of my heart humbly bow and pay homage to Rinpoche for your selfless, caring, compassionate love towards all of mankind. And it is our fervent hope that Rinpoche would continually guide us and we wish you a very, very long life and pray that you would continue your stay here with us in Malays

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

Never forget to do our Vajra Yogini practice. We can lose our money, we can lose our friends, we can lose our position, we can lose our family, we can lose our wife, we can lose our husband and we can lose our materialistic possession because in the end we will lose all outer objects anyway, but NEVER lose our Vajra Yogini practice. Everything lost is meant to be lost because we are in samsara and whatever we enjoy in samsara will not last and will be lost. It is their nature. Never waste time, energy and keep procrastinating, but do our Vajra Yogini practice intensely and strongly and be firm. Samsara never grants permanence and happiness, but Vajra Yogini's practice will hand the universe and all the joys within it to you.-Tsem Rinpoche

LADRANG LIGHT OFFERING FUND A rare and precious opportunity for candles to be offered on your behalf at the private residence of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche. The offering of light to the Three Jewels has great benefits for one's mind including gaining clarity and intelligence, the acceleration of realisations, and greater understanding and wisdom. This exclusive light offering is also ideal for those who do not have a personal altar or are unable to make light offerings themselves. http://www.vajrasecrets.com/ladrang-light-offering-fund

One of the things I love about my Guru is that his teachings are never dry and far from boring. Rinpoche would joke, poke fun and tease but there is always an insightful, if not profound, teaching in each joke or teasing. I consider myself very blessed to have found a Guru who has the skillful means to drum some Dharma into this numbskull of mine. -From Sharon Ong

Good friends with good motivation coupled with a kind heart to be of benefit to others is time worth spent. Life is over so fast and anytime it can be snuffed out, so therefore do dharma, practice dharma, and engage in dharma. Tsem Rinpoche.

Myself at Dromo Geshe Rinpoche's house where there is a sacred lake on his property. The Five Sister Protector Goddesses abide at this lake. I am making offerings to the divinities in the lake here. Many contractors or workers who come to do work often observe 'Asian ladies' dressed very well walking around the perimeter of the lake and there are no Asian ladies living nearby at all.

Myself sitting at a lake where Bigfoots are often sighted in Willow Creek, California. This area in Northern California is a hot spot for Bigfoot sightings for hundreds of years till present day. We spent the afternoon there and we did our sadhanas and enjoy the BEAUTIFUL cool/dry weather (no humidity) and you don't sweat. The water was clear and sparkling. It is one of the most beautiful places I have been too and I can easily live there in this area. It was hard to leave this place. Tsem Rinpoche

    All beings have feelings and do not want pain, to be hurt or harmed. Therefore we must respect this and not harm animals. See this video how this man has made good friends with a special fish who comes when he rings for the fish. Touching. Tsem Rinpoche

    HH the Dalai Lama prays with HH Trijang Rinpoche and HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Such a beautiful video of His Holiness Dalai Lama, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche (Very exalted high Nyingma lama) are all praying together. In the background you see a young Kyabje Lati Rinpoche too. So beautiful. This is how it was before the ban. All the sects and high lamas were superbly harmonious. After the Dorje Shugden ban things changed for the worse. May the ban be released soon. Tsem Rinpoche
