There are many talented members and volunteers in KSA everyday to paint statues, tsatsas, sew Buddhas’ clothes, thangkas’ brocades etc…it is truly a wonderful place for artistic people to dedicate their skills to Dharma. Dharma through art is this dept’s motto.

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!

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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!

    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!

  12. patsy on Dec 23, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    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.

    Dear friends close around the world,

    I must thank you for sharing many of the information I’ve posted on this blog through the years because it really serves to inform many on different issues. When people have information, then it could be the beginning of something good. Whatever little bit of good things I am doing now, is because of the information I came across or given to me in the past. Same goes for activists, researchers, housewives, businesswomen, professionals, speakers/representatives, donors, field workers, celebrities, leaders and so on. They were given or came across information that started their passion to do something good for the world. So everyone, please keep tirelessly sharing the information here and many thanks from myself. :-)

    It would be worthy, that my blog evolves into a general platform for all types of beneficial information in the future with many contributing writers and works from around the world. For now I bring you three extremely important articles you should be aware of. After reading the articles, you should please ask yourself two questions: Is it time to start worrying and how much will you do consistently to bring awareness to others of the issues your about to read?

    Have a good day,

    Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear friends,

    I’m trying to share with you that all denizens form and formless, human and non-human have feelings. Everyone wishes to be free, safe and loved. Everyone would like to have their lives not taken away. I always blog about animals, their feelings, their plight, their lives, their difficulties, their fears, their loyalty, their importance, their pain and their gratitude to let you know please do not hurt them, beat them, kill them and eat them. Because they have feelings and fear and love just like humans.

    We shouldn’t rob someone just because someone else robs people. That is all the more reason we should not rob people seeing the pain it gives. We shouldn’t say myself not eating meat won’t make a difference. It does make a difference and in your own heart, you know you are doing the right thing and that is the difference. Stop looking for excuses to eat meat because our bodies do not need it. We really do not need meat of any sort.

    I will continue to blog about animals and include articles from other people in the hopes I can spread the need for kindness towards animals because they can’t speak but they deserve happiness, freedom from fear and our exploitation of them.

    Please join me here and share these posts as it will spread the good word and it’s something you can do from the comfort of your own home. http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/category/animals-vegetarianism

    Much respects to everyone,

    Dharma work is NOT WHAT OTHERS CAN GIVE YOU OR WHAT YOU CAN DEMAND, but what you give others quietly and without complaints……dharma work is about giving. Giving from all levels is what really brings love, contenments and respect…what we all want and need… Dharma is about rooting out our selfish mind that brought us all our problems in the first place. Dharma teaches us the truth about ourselves and we should face it and do something about it before it’s too late…When we have so much support and care around us and we ‘cannot’ solve our problems, how to solve it alone and away? But sometimes being away makes us realize what we missed and it could be positive..it’s different for everyone. ~ His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche

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 have just finished doing 50+ tweets on mind, Buddhism, spirituality, acceptance, love, entanglements, thoughts and inner battles. Do enjoy reading them and sharing them. It might help someone I humbly hope. I do so every few days to share about wisdom, kechara and our spiritual journey. If it can reach people and benefit them, why not. Our lives and being alive is totally about benefitting others. That is the purpose of breathing and being human... Tsem Rinpoche Do follow me on tweets: http://www.twitter.com/tsemtulku

I would love to live in the Mt. Shasta area of Northern California. It has been recognized by the Native American Indian people to be a spiritually charged area. It has a power vortex under the ground in that area that energizes the place to be very blessed for spiritual practice, meditation and contemplations. Tsem Rinpoche

Dear Andree Duckworth, Thank you very much for your feedback on our Kechara Pastors. They work very hard, they have great knowledge and very patient. I started the program so people who wish to bring dharma to others can have a lay life as well as a spiritual life recognized by others. Halfway to monk/nun-hood without being ordained. So naming them Pastors and having basic lay vows is good and it helps the public in Malaysia to identify with them easily. It worked out very much. I hope you will let them know you are benefitted by their hardwork. They will appreciate it very much as I do. Tsem R

This is a special statue of Je Tsongkapa. It was made during Tsongkapa's time by a student and offered to Him. It is said to resemble Tsongkapa very much. And this holy statue is now housed in Tashi Lunpo Monastery, Shigatse Tibet. To see, hear and contemplate Je Tsongkapa is so meaningful and collect one aeons of merits.

    I just purchased an empty locket from an art store for around $10 and had a nice picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche inserted in the front and His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche inserted on the others side at home. Attached a str...ing and it's good to wear for blessings. Look how beautiful. I am the type, I devote myself to my practice but I remember it is the sole kindness of the guru's teachings. Without the guru there is no dharma at all as I cannot speak to Buddha directly. Tsem Rinpoche

    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Dear friends, See this incredible video. This chimp was found in captivity for many years. Dr Jane Goodall released him into the wild. Look how he comes back to thank her with deep apprecition. It's amazing. Animals have such strong feelings of pain and happiness just like us. We should never hurt them and share with others to not hurt them. Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com
