Dear Rinpoche,

We gave out 50 packets of food to the homeless tonight. Most of them were regulars and about 20 of them around a shopping complex. The volunteers were Jess, William and a newcomer C.K. Lim who also sponsored mineral water.

Goodnight and rest well.

I am very proud of Patsy Gooi, my long time friend and student, who has not only founded Kechara Paradise Penang, but also started the Penang chapter of Kechara Soup Kitchen. May Kechara Soup Kitchen Penang grow and benefit many. I have known Patsy for over a decade. She is another very loyal student. Now she has taken the step to not only manage our Kechara Paradise Outlet in Penang, but also to start doing work by feeding the homeless in Penang under the Kechara Soup Kitchen banner. Wonderful. Our Kechara Soup Kitchen is now inspiring more people to feed the homeless and take action to give back to the community. I am indeed proud of Patsy. Thank you Patsy!!

    We are really proud to have Patsy here in Penang. The energy she puts in is inmeasurable. I rejoice for the Penang KSP volunteer team for continuing to do such a wonderful job. Lots of effort has been put in with such a small team only. Incrediblely Penang is distributing food on a weekday & not weekend as in KSK, KL. Despite the next day is a workday, the team still managed to stay on late to do the distribution rounds.

    Despite her petite appearance, Patsy is really a strong pillar of strength – may she establish more pillars!

  3. William on Aug 31, 2010 at 9:56 pm

    I must say it is a great experience going out to distribute food to the homeless. It is humbling to see so many homeless in the streets by nightfall. All thanks to Patsy and Jess, I get to support this good cause. KSK in Penang will definitely grow bigger!

  4. Uncle Eddie on Sep 2, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    At least its a good start for Kechara Soup Kitchen, Penang with at least 50packets of food given out, as compared with what KSK Kuala Lumpur has achieved on their first go with only 35 packets. So this should serve as an inspiration and pride that through you KSK Penang forms the first link to feed the homeless and help them off the streets. KSK KL was like your Penang KSK at the start, but what they have achieved today is purely due to hard work, effort and good support of each and everyone, particularly the sponsors and Media, not forgetting those who volunteered too. Like your sister Ruby Khong, you may be known as angel of the street No:2 if your Penang KSK can spread like KL. Congrats to you, Patsy.

  5. Patsy on Sep 3, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    Thank you all for the lovely comments. It’s an inspiration for me to even work harder to benefit others. At present, we have increased our food distribution to 100packets due to kind sponsors and more volunteers coming in to help in the distribution.
    May we have a building to provide more facilities to the homeless in Penang soon!!!

  6. Angel sh Ooi on Sep 3, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    I am very proud of you! Your sincerity towards Rinpoche and kechara Organisation.
    You are a lady of leisure but you have chosen to work hard in dharma and benefiting others. Your sincerity and go all the way, will inspires lots of your friends and others later. Because of what you are, KSK will manifest in Penang in the very near future. All The Best To Patsy! Thank you

    Even if Kechara Soup Kitchen, Kuala Lumpur were to grow very big with hundreds and hundreds of packets of food being distributed to the
    homeless on the streets. A person will not start distributing food without having a touch of deep feeling of sincerity and compassion for the plight of the homeless. Due to the inspiration from her sister Ruby Khong starting Kechara Soup Kitchen, Kuala Lumpur. This has prompted Patsy to start going on rounds during the weekdays nights to distribute a few packets of food to start with. This has increased so she decided to officially start Kechara Soup Kitchen Penang. This is all due to Lord Setrap help’s as Patsy also has started and lead her customers and friends to do Setrap Puja in her outlet Kechara Paradise Penang which she is also managing.

  8. Irene Lim on Sep 8, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    Congratulations Patsy! Keep going for Kechara. You Boleh!

  9. Jess on Sep 10, 2010 at 6:08 pm

    Patsy inspired me with whatever she did in dharma work and more and more volunteers involved in KSK in Penang now.Thanks to Patsy and all the volunteers involved ,the homeless get food and water and may we can help them out of the street in future.

  10. Kathy Wong on Sep 23, 2010 at 12:23 pm

    All these years I have been very fascinated and curious about the traditions and mystical charms of Tibetian Buddhism. Even though I have read many books on it cannot be compared to my visiting KP Penang with Patsy’s excellent explanation and more so when I heard Rinpoche’s talk on the CD, it really clear a lot of my doubts and queries concerning the dhamma practice.Its so simple yet profound and penetrating deep into our hearts with just some short simple phrases. Even more surprising is that Patsy single handedly raise funds to set up KP. What a Super Woman! Millions of thanks to you for opening my eyes and heart into the magical world of Tibet and Lama Tsongkhapa.

  11. Sid on Nov 19, 2012 at 4:45 pm

    Hi There,

    Ganden Sumtseling Monastery in Yunnan is beautiful surrounded by mountains. This monastery is known as ‘Little Potala” because it resembles the potala in Lhasa. This place was built by the 5th Dalai Lama and financed by the Chinese Emperor Kangxi. Kangxi would visit often to oversee the construction which is very unusual. Kangxi was one of Dorje Shugden’s previous incarnations. This is one of the earliest monasteries to adopt Dorje Shugden’s practice. Also the in their chapel is where the famous sword bent by the previous oracle in trance of Shugden is kept. Highly blessed. Tsem Rinpoche (read more.

    What is interesting is His Holiness the Dalai Lama is considered as the incarnation of the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, therefore a highly realized and attained being. Whether the Dalai Lama is 10 years old or 70 years old, his mindstream is the same and attained. Attainments cannot go backwards and at any age or any lifetime (incarnation) as he is highly attained. If this is the case when His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed the prayer to Dorje Shugden years ago, his mindstream was the same mindstream as now. So how can he make a mistake that back then he saw Dorje Shugden as a superior being and now he doesn’t? I don’t mean disrespect to His Holiness the Dalai Lama with this, but examining the situation only.

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.

    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    In the 1960s, H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Ling Rinpoche would always organize Lama Chöpa (Guru puja-composed by Panchen Rinpoche) with 1000 offerings in Bodhgaya and would often be joined in by H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and sometimes the 16th Karmapa would even join in. Wonderful. Watch this blessed and old footage of the two Yongzins doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya. Yongzin is the special title to those who were the root and close teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There were two official Yongzins. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were the Yongzins of the current Dalai Lama for over 40 years living nearby to Dalai Lama and passing him all the teachings necessary. They were extremely kind and giving all necessary teachings, empowerments and oral transmissions that Dalai Lama is disseminating to the world today to millions.

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

    Gongkar is our new bird for Kechara Forest Retreat's aviary. Gongkar never had friends and the original owner could not bring him to his destination. Now he is with us and assimilating in his cage within the aviary for a few weeks then released into aviary. Look at how much he wants attention from the other birds. Cute. Tsem Rinpoche

How to overcome anger? Be patient. Apologize when wrong and DO NOT REPEAT. Integrity is the foundation of development of the mind into higher states of thinking and existence. Be kind to everyone and be tolerant. Control the anger till there is nothing to control. You can control your food intake, walking, urinating, defecating, spending, entertainment so why not anger? It’s just a part of you. ~Do you want to hear the truth? http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/…/do-you-want-to-hear-the-truth… Join us on our next ‪#‎blogchat‬ on this profound insightful topic on ‪#‎healinganger‬.
