Dear Students and Friends,

I have just received an mms update from Beng Kooi regarding Kechara’s Sunway Pyramid Wesak Fair… and I thought it would be great to share this event with all my blog readers!

This year, Kechara has a prime spot at the Sunway Pyramid Shopping Centre (huge and one of the major shopping complexes in Kuala Lumpur…has everything you need) to host our Wesak Road Show. The theme will be “The Joy of Sharing“, and it will be taking place  Friday till Sunday (20/04/2012 – 22/04/2012). We are located right at the main entrance of Sunway Pyramid, with huge Kechara buntings placed on all 6 surrounding pillars of the concourse.

It’s Thursday night and many Kecharians are now busy setting up for tomorrow’s event. I love my Kechara people… they are always so dedicated, professional and efficient… working very hard to make every Kechara event a success. I like it not only because it shows their dedication to Dharma, but it has a deeper meaning to it, which is to bring Dharma to others.

There will be lots of activities lined up for the event, including performances on the main stage and games with prizes to be won! Some of the prizes include my blog merchandise hehe… Do bring your kids along as there will be many fun activities just for them!

KSA, KD, KP, KMP, KEP, beCause, MKC and KSK will also be there. Kechara Soup Kitchen have re-created a make-shift homeless shelter for those who would like to experience what it’s like to live on the streets!

Just like all of Kechara events, may this year’s Wesak fair successfully bring interesting events into the lives of many others. I thank Sunway Pyramid Shopping centre for their generous help, their cooperation and their genuine celebration of all the holidays in Malaysia in this case Wesak Day. Sunway Pyramid management are wonderful and helpful people to work with. I really really really appreciate them very much.  They really promote ONE MALAYSIA.

The wishing tree invites people to pick any item and to purchase them. Kechara Soup Kitchen did this activity to raise the items needed for The Klang & Coasy Chik Sin Thong Old Folks Home, Persatuan Rumah Caring Kajang and Rumah Charis. They’re 3 worthy charitable causes to help…

She runs an old folk’s home and also takes care of single mothers. She’s very happy to receive the food items from the Food Bank, and said that if more people were like KSK, her work would be much easier. I’m glad that we could help her in some way.

 

44

These two men are from the same home, Rumah Caring. According to Wendy, they were considered “failures in society”, but they both now help Wendy run the home. How wonderful that they now use their lives to help others.

    CONGRATULATIONS to all the organizing committee members, volunteers, friends and sponsors who helped made this event a success.What a fun, exciting and creative Wesak Fair!

    Thank you, Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this wonderful updates.

  6. David Lai on Apr 27, 2012 at 4:34 pm

    Yeah! It was an amazing roadshow with its diverse events and great awareness for the Kechara organisation. I love the long tall banners and the amazing Food Bank. I dunno where Dato Ruby got that idea but it was certainly effective. Every evening, the bins were piling in with food. Thank you Sunway for doing all this.

    The flash mob kids filmed their own performance and have uploaded it onto YouTube. Here is the link:-

    Kechara not only stole the show, but also showed many that doing Dharma can be fun, joyful and modern. Everything is soooo full of joy and love – Joy of giving and sharing. Whether you are a Kecharian or not is not an issue…… as long as you participate, you are considered as part of the family for giving, sharing and giving to benifit others, just like in all Kecharian events! Many thanks and appreciation to Sunway Pyramid Centre for providing the facility to make all these “Joys of sharing” possible. They are indeed caring and sharing like what our Guru, Rinpoche said in his master Blog,”Love is not getting what you want but giving what others need without agenda.”

    這是三天的克切拉团体展銷會,與去年不一樣,因為我們走向服務社區活動為主。我們有當天第一次展示的糧食銀行、克切拉地球計畫、兒童遊戲學習空間和各式各樣的舞台娱樂活動。這個展銷會,是一個靈修的延伸空間,每個到來的新朋友們,不分種族,不分宗教,不管是大人或小孩;都盡情地享受著現場所提供的活動和每個特殊的學習天地。

    克切拉的名字,在購物中心之間流傳著,它的特別之處在于不再局限於宗教的藩籬,沖破了这層隔膜讓大家體會的是人性本善的使然,是自在和無分別的。這是我在此次展銷會最大的感受。宗教不是一個距離,種族不是一種分別,所有的良善和本性隨喜的性格,每個人都一樣的,只是需要一個自由的空間讓它得以延伸罷了。

      “宗教不是一個距離,種族不是一種分別,所有的良善和本性隨喜的性格,每個人都一樣的,只是需要一個自由的空間讓它得以延伸罷了”——赞!

      今年的双威卫塞节,我感觉跟去年的不同。我超喜欢Star War星球大战的几个家伙,在克切拉的档口一点都不会格格不入,而且超酷!完全能跟Food Bank食物银行、绿色主题、灵修,哦,还有十几个年轻小伙子活力十足的嘻哈舞蹈融合!

      Gambateh !

    Thank you for the lovely info of the Kechara Wesak Fair at Sunway Pyramid. It was in a spectacular position, thanks to Kevin Tan’s assistance – on the lower ground right below the main entrance so that all visitors to the busy Mall would come in and look at the activities happening there over the weekend. The variety of performances and activities really gave people a different perspective of Wesak – which celebrated the Joy of Giving. People often associate Buddhism with austerity and silence.. this is a different presentation which shows that Buddhism can be joyful and fun – yet with the core values of giving and sharing. Thank you to all those who worked so hard over the weeks and months to plan for this and the volunteers on the three hectic days. It was a great time had by all! Thank you most of all to Rinpoche who shows us that with Dharma, we can be ourselves – but better!

  10. mayy on Apr 24, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    First and foremost we would like to thank and congratulate Mr Kevin Tan and Sunway Pyramid Marketing team especially Ms Wee whom has helped and assisted very much in bringing together this event by sponsoring venue and many other things. All Kecharians who were at there helped and worked harmoniously to bring joy, love and kindness to all walks of life there.

    We would like to thank all the committees and volunteers whom has came and helped to bring this event a joyous one for all.

    Most importantly, we would like to thank Rinpoche’s blessing and the blog team for posting up all these beautiful pictures to share.

  11. pastor ngeow on Apr 24, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    Nothing , not even the Dark Forces from Star Wars could dampen the spirit of Kecharians during the 3 day Sunway Pyramid Wesak event. I believe the Joy from sharing is all conquering.
    I congratulate all the organising committee members, volunteers, friends and sponsors who had helped made this event a success. In particular Kevin Tan , the COO of Sunway Pyramid who went out of his way to accomodate us.
    Last but the most important , we thank our Lama and Guru for blessing and inspiring us always.

  12. Han on Apr 24, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    非常有意义的活动,尤其是克切拉香积厨的食物银行,吸引了不少善心人士的随喜捐赠。
    从精彩图片中感到克切拉人的热诚和努力!

  13. jp on Apr 24, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    Wow! Thanks Beng Kooi for all the exciting pics! A BIG THANK YOU to Sunway for having Kechara!!!

    This is such a different Wesak fair. I like it very much because it embodies the qualities for Buddha’s teachings. There was so much love, kindness, harmony and care in the event. The energy was wonderful!

  14. Siong Woan on Apr 24, 2012 at 2:51 pm

    Thank you to Sunway Pyramid management team for their support in making this event a success.

    Despite being the 3rd weekend of the month (usually slow on retail sales as most people had finished last month’s pay while waiting for the next pay cheque) Sunway Pyramid was packed with shoppers. The entire 3-day was busy for those who were on duty, but it was a good avenue to share our joy with so many people.

    To those shoppers who so kindly donated to Food Bank, we thank you for your generosity and look forward to seeing you in Kechara!

  15. Paris on Apr 24, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    This is fantastic – so lively, so unusual. I don’t think I’ve seen Wesak celebrated in such an eclectic way before – especially not with Star Wars characters from the “Dark Side”? Kechara certainly does it differently!

    I wanted to also take this time to thank Sunway for their HUGE support not just in this event but continuously. Kevin Tan has been instrumental not just in supporting this Wesak event but is also a member of the education committee in Kechara. His lovely wife Michelle is also in edu comm, involved very much with the Manjushri Kids’ Class. So they are bringing Dharma to people on different levels – through education programmes, and also through shopping! Thanks Kevin and Michelle.

    Well done to everyone involved. Those quotes are fantastic too – a great way for bringing the blog to people and sharing wisdom in a truly modern way – futuristic even, with Star Wars!

  16. tfreon on Apr 24, 2012 at 11:28 am

    This is a fun and creative Wesak fair ! Kechara promote Care, compassion in fun ways. wisdom can be fun too.. 🙂

  17. Terri on Apr 24, 2012 at 11:18 am

    Wow that must have been wonderful!

  18. abby F on Apr 23, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche! The photos and captions are funny! I’m a big fans of Star Wars also!! hehehe… ‘Star Wars taking people hostage!’ is my favourite photo 🙂

  19. Kevin Tan on Apr 23, 2012 at 1:20 am

    In H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s blog, Rinpoche was kind to extend his appreciation to the management team of Sunway Pyramid. Actually, I am guilty of not doing enough to benefit others consistently. Instead, I am very gratefully to Kechara for giving any opportunity to benefit others. I, instead, is apreciative.

  20. Irene Lim on Apr 22, 2012 at 3:45 pm

    Wow, Darth Vader and his Dark Side troops coming to visit Kechara Wesak Fair at Sunway Pyramid!!

    • Charlie on Apr 25, 2012 at 12:32 pm

      Basically, the black one is not darth vader, It is actually Tie Pilot… hope someone can change it before some of our members see this, especially our vader boss… thanks

  21. Tracy Tan on Apr 22, 2012 at 11:17 am

    Wow Shikoku islands are amazingly beautiful! Not only the island offers scenic landscape but also a great pilgrimage destination where there are 88 temples around the island and an artistic town too. If given the opportunity I would love to join the pilgrimage trip, a trip to have a break from the rush in work and living in the city. I would like to visit Iya Village and Oboke and Koboke Gorge. I’m sure the hike at this place would be lovely. So nice to be near the nature and breathing clean air.

    Amazed with Jacob’s intelligence and great knowledge at a young age, he is definitely a genius. But the question is where does he obtain the intelligence from? He couldn’t have learned it at that young age. From Buddhism angle, I believe this is from his past life imprints. He must have this great skill and intelligence and that his mind bring along to this life.

    Ekai Kawaguchi was a Japanese Buddhist monk, famed for his incredible journeys to Nepal and Tibet, being the first Japanese traveling to either country. Ekai Kawaguchi who’s dedication and determination in learning Buddhism was indeed a inspiration to all.He took four years to reach Tibet was not easy afterall. Travelling to remote areas in Nepal and Tibet at that time was tough .As a foreigner who could not speak the languages was another hurdle moreover to translate it to Japanese was challenging for him. He has devoted his time in Tibet to Buddhist pilgrimage and study.Incredible he even translated difficult classical Chinese texts to Japanese. He brought back to Japan a large collection of Tibetan scriptures to be translated too.He was a pioneer of Tibetan studies in Japan, and well respected by the people of Tibat,Nepal and Japan. A statue honouring the traveling monk Ekai Kawaguchi was built at Shichidou-station, Osaka in Japan.Memorial Museum was also named after him in Marpha, Nepal to commemorate him.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Antoinette Kass and Pastor Niral Patel
    for sharing this inspiring article which i do enjoyed reading.

    In such extreme cold weather the fishermen risked their lives to save a doggie on ice bed, Wonderful to watch the video It shown us that a doggie is also human. They deserved to live too Everything got the right to live. It was such a happy ending. To serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others no matter in what circumstances.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    A Guru teaches, guilding along and show us as we learn ,pracitce to be a better person and will help us to cross the ocean of samsara. When we practice spiritually with the guidance of a Guru, we will certainly progress,allows us to actualize successfully all the steps of the path to enlightenment.We are to walk the path no matter what happens and always devoted to our Guru. Without a Guru and proper guidance will lead us to no where and no Dharma.
    Well said by Li Kheng….Spiritual awakening is not about changing but expanding yourself.
    Thank you Li Kheng for sharing this article.

    How fortunate for us to have Dorje Shugden prayer text and images, of correct iconography in multiple languages. This goes to show that Dorje Shugden is popular among the people from so many places. Rejoice to all the recipients of Dorje Shugden prayer material, may they always be guided and protected by this World Peace Protector.

    Beautiful story of Kukkuripa choosing a dog over a havevenly feast. Kukkuripa shared everything from food, water to bedding with his dog in the caves for years while he meditates. So much so he was known as Kukkuripa the dog lover.The dog to him is more a friend. Kukkuripa had given up all attachments to be with dog as he could bear the sufferings of the dog being alone and without foods.
    Later only he realised the dog was actually Vajra Yogini and was attained full enlightenment and blessed by Vajra Yogini.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful and inspiriing teachings for us .To let go all attachments and always be compassion,caring,be kind and loving to all sentient beings.

    Wow …interesting ,unique a Tibetan lama also known as Iron arrow of Golok looks more native American Indian than a Lama.Chagthag Rinpoche was well respected living in Sikkim.Through his miraculous powers gained from meditation,he could even fly.He used to wear heavy iron chains on his body and neck to pull him down from flying. He would fly from mountaintop to mountaintop to meditate Thats amazing.
    We are fortunate able to view this Very rare and powerful picture of Chagdar Rinpoche with the traditonal outfit of a wisdom mirror at his chest and wears a leopard skin skirt,carring weapons.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting post with a short explanation of the outfit for us to understand better.

    Deepavali is a flavourful festival where rich colours are used to decorate the premises and lights will be lit everywhere. It is rarely known to the multi-racial community of beautiful Malaysia that the festival actually marks the victory over Demon King Ravana and rescuing the abducted Goddess Sita from Demon King Ravana. Today, the celebration of Deepavali signifies victory of good over evil, truth over ignorance, and light over darkness. Therefore, may we all be joyous to look forward to the beautiful celebration of Deepavali and be reminded to battle our inner demon, ignorance and darkness. Thank you for this sharing.

    Leshan Giant Buddha is the world’s largest stone-carved Buddha.It is a 71m stone Buddha carved out of cliff which is situated in southern Sichuan province of China and not far from Mt. Emei.Leshan Giant Buddha is a statue of Maitreya in sitting posture facing Mt Emei.From what i saw from the post the Giant Buddha statue looks stunning. It was listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.Leshan Giant Buddha is the tallest Buddha sculpture in the world craved during the 8th century AD.
    Its such a beautiful place to combine travelling and holidays with spirituality to collect merit, plant Dharma seeds and be blessed, as advice by Rinpoche.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

    Interesting article…..It is the home of a spiritual lineage of female practitioners, a unique nunnery of about 400 nuns and the heart of a renowned practice tradition. Their practices come from the Kagyu and Nyingma schools within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.spiritual practitioners at Gebchak Gonpa.It is the largest nunneries in Tibet and heart of a renowned meditation tradition unique and outstanding to women.Its nuns are famed for their accomplishments in profound meditation, while their compassion and dedication to the Dharma is remarkable.Reading of each unique nun’s stories their interviews and their backgrounds and so forth were interesting and inspiring.They hold on their Guru Devotion firmly from the moment they entered the nunery till the end of their lives.

    Mt. Emei seem to be towering, beautiful, old and mysterious.It is like a huge green screen standing in the southwest of the Chengdu Plain.Mt. Emei was enlisted in the world natural and cultural heritage by the UNESCO. Mt Emei is the highest of the sacred mountains which is at 3,099m having a long rich history,people in remote ancient times have lived in this place as early as 5,000 years ago.Amazing discoveries by the archaeologist.The first monastery was built 1,900 years ago, thats where the birthplace of Buddhism in Yangtze Valley begin.
    The Buddhist architecture, music, grottos and paintings in the mountain all reflect rich religious flavor and culture.Its famous for the beauty of the mountains and there are many ancient temples which attracted thousands of tourist yearly.
    Thank you rinpoche for sharing these post which i do hope i can visit one day.

    Chinese folklore features a rich variety of ghosts, monsters, and other supernatural creatures. According to traditional beliefs a ghost is the spirit form of a person .There are many folk beliefs and taboos surrounding during the 7th month of the Chinese calendar.Thats where the hell gate open recording to their beliefs.Traditional Chinese culture attached great importance to Ancestral Ghosts and the need to have descendants who would continue to honour them.
    Each faith have their own views of it.Ghosts have played a very important role in Chinese beliefs for many thousands of years, and for many Chinese they still do.
    I always believe when we do not disturb them,they do no harm to us and we are protected by each individual beliefs.As long as we are mindful of customs and beliefs.
    what we can do to help those wandering spirits is by each doing own customs of compassionate way.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these comprehensive explanation,insight post which helps us to understand better.

    It take some time for me to read this article but it really worth to read. This article really give very details on Kyushu especially on tourist places and the way to get to tourist places and accommodations as well. I like Kamado Jigoku hot spring because it look like demon being cook by the hot spring. This very good educational source to people to become good person. Besides that, temples are always in my travel itinerary, so I would to visit Fukiji and Makiodo temple where a huge Amitabha statue was located inside.
    I will recommend this article my friend because it really informative and sure will help in Kyushu travel itinerary.
    Thanks Reinpoche and others to gather so much information on Kyushu to open our eye on Kyushu.

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.

This picture is of KB lovingly holding Mumu while he tries to stand up. I was in the room with them and someone else took this picture. 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

When the ban first came into place, the monks protested against the ban in Gaden Monastery. Samdong Rinpoche was there and saw the protests which later he and Tibetan leadership took fierce and quick actions to cut all protests and expel all monks who protested. There is no democracy. Dorje Shugden has been practiced by individual and khamtsen group monks in Sera, Drepung and Gaden for four hundred years and suddenly it is not allowed. No religious freedom. What the Tibetan leadership wants, they will impose their will. If you disobey, protest or not agree, you will be banished or silenced.

This is a simple chart showing the three main psychic channels used in tantric meditations to control the winds, raise tummo (fire energy), gain higher consciousness and insight and also for gaining siddhis. These channels are used in meditations for controlling the mind, when the mind ejects from the body (phowa) and one\'s death. These three channels are very important. Tsem Rinpoche
