Dear friends,

Within this past month, 4 more people have decided to join Kechara full-time! I got the blog team to write a short bio on each of them… and truly rejoice for these 4 Kecharians! Please read up on them as they are interesting people and leave them a message of congratulations, perhaps?

These are:

1. Yong Swee Keong
2. Yurie Lim
3. Phillis Chin
4. Madam Lim Han Nee

I would like to wish them all a warm welcome to Kechara. I wish you well and I wish you the best from my heart. Mdme Lim Han Nee is very special. She is retired, but with the support of her husband, she came out of retirement to work in Kechara full time. She said she would like to work for Dharma for the rest of her life as it gives meaning to her retirement. What an inspiration.

Put your best forward and join our goals. Be a part of a dream of spirituality in the 21st century where we work together to build KWPC.  We let people understand that working for a spiritual organization could have even more benefits than the ordinary run of the mill secular job. We bring happiness, hope and direction to many that feel and understand materialism is not everything. I recommend along with your job, learn up on the Dharma if you feel an aptitude, then you will have greater job satisfaction for sure.

Tsem Rinpoche

sweekeong1. Yong Swee Keong

Yong Swee Keong is a 30-year-old Malaysian Multimedia University (MMU) graduate. He first found out about Kechara on a lowyat.net forum, as he wanted to do some charity work and there was a thread discussing Kechara Soup Kitchen. Wanting to know more, Swee Keong looked up Kechara.com only to be impressed at how modern and regularly updated it was. His parents even remarked that they knew who KSK were as they always appeared in the newspapers.

Swee Keong’s career had brought him to many countries, being mostly based in Japan. As an application consultant for a company who are software vendors for banks, his life was fairly comfortable. However, he felt that there was more to life. He started to watch Rinpoche’s YouTube channel, which led him to purchase the book Call Me Paris. He said that Rinpoche kept mentioning someone called “Paris” in the videos, and he wanted to know who she was!

About a year ago, he came to Kechara House alone. Coincidentally, it was just before Rinpoche’s birthday and there was a Chinese Setrap puja going on – so he joined in. After that puja he joined in every single different puja, although he pointed out that he had never chanted any mantras before, prior to Kechara.

On Rinpoche’s birthday, he helped out as a volunteer and from there his volunteering initiatives snowballed.

What made him take the leap to join full-time was when Rinpoche showed severe signs of serious illness in October 2011. It made him think twice about what was precious in life, and what he should be spending his lifetime doing. He didn’t want to be the one who missed out on working in the Dharma while Rinpoche was alive.

Now, he has joined E-division as a software engineer.

 

yurielim'2. Lim Yan Shan (Yurie)

Yurie is a 24-year-old UTAR College graduate from Ipoh. Having studied graphic design, upon graduation she joined the company Photo and Print to exercise her skills learnt at university.

At the end of 2011, she decided to resign from her job wanting to expand her horizons. Searching for a job, she saw that Kechara was looking to hire graphic designers. As she was studying Japanese at SS2 (with Kechara Paradise below her tuition center), to her Kechara was just a statue-selling shop. When she expressed to her friends about her interest in Kechara, they thought that Kechara only sold vegetarian food (as they knew about Kechara Oasis)… and when she mentioned Kechara to her parents, they too thought that Kechara only sold statues – their regular eatery was near Kechara Discovery!

With all these mixed ideas on what Kechara was about, she met up with Sock Wan – who explained to Yurie the 13 departments in Kechara.

Now, Yurie has decided to join Kechara E-division full-time… bringing her creative skills to the organization!

 

Phillis3. Phillis Chin Xin Yin

Phillis is the beautiful 28 year old sister of Helena Chin.

For the past 10 years, Phillis’s career revolved around glamorous but hard work. Working with Barcardi Martini, Malaysia, she also did a range of miscellaneous jobs, such as fashion and hair-shows, various product launching, event usherette and GP/GT glamour girl.

Through her school mate, Louis, she found out about Kechara and volunteered at a Kechara Soup Kitchen distribution round. From there, she volunteered at the Gompa opening – only to decide in mid-2011, that she wanted to do Kechara part-time.

At that time, many people in Kechara knew of Phillis as the shy and soft-spoken sister of Helena who helped out at Kechara Discovery. However, at the end of November 2011, Phillis decided to join full-time!

She said that her late mother had learnt Dharma by herself and at times, with a good friend. Whatever that she had learnt, she would relay it to her children. When Phillis heard Rinpoche’s teachings, she felt that it was very different from conventional teaching methods… but similar to the way her mother taught her. She thought to herself, “I finally found a real Guru”.

The people in Kechara make her feel like she’s part of a family – a family that can learn Dharma together.

Phillis is now with Kechara Discovery.

 

aimoy4. Lim Han Nee

As someone who has gained much respect as she grew older, everyone affectionately calls her Madam Lim Han Nee.

Madam Lim Han Nee has a Bachelor of Arts and a Masters degree in Education. Starting out as a secondary school teacher, she then went on to becoming a school principal. As a natural learner and educator, she’s very interested in Dharma teachings – and even seized the opportunity to studying the Lamrim for 2 years, under the guidance of Pastor Ngeow. While studying, she had also learnt up different pujas, prayers and practices.

In 2005, she found out about Kechara through her sister Mrs Chuah and feels like her family has grown by folds since. She feels like Kechara is one big Dharma family, with many Dharma brothers and sisters whom she has come to appreciate for their care and kindness.

While most people are retiring at the age of 66, Madam Lim Han Nee has decided to join Kechara full-time! She says that she has received so much love and care from Tsem Rinpoche and Kechara that it was time to give back and to share the same care towards others. The sad passing of Justin Ripley, whom she greatly admires, served to be a wake-up call for her to put Dharma teachings into action.

Madam Lim Han Nee is now with Kechara House.

  3. yek yee on Jan 6, 2012 at 12:32 am

    So happy to see more people join Kechara be a full-time dharma worker. It is so lucky can work in dharma. Of course, I want to say CONGRATULATIONS to four of them:)

    I remember three or four ago, Rinpoche says he want to prove that doing dharma in full time and you still can self-sustain and survive. At that time, not more than five full time staff in Kechara, now our full-time staffs more than hundreds!!! Yes, of course what Rinpoche says is right and proved by result. Incredible!!!

    Many full-time staffs who I knew them two or three ago, almost all of them are transform a lot, my point is dharma work not only can benefit others, actually the fundamental logic is you will received those benefit directly. For example nowadays I became more happier and calm while difficulties appear in front of me. I believe many full-time dharma worker have same experience like me.

    Human nature is very simple, something you feel is good and benefit then you will put your afford to do it. Because of this feel good factor then you starting share with others people. By your transformation then people will start his or her interest into Buddha’s teaching or Dharma. How nice every of us can show ourself as a real example to attract into dharma, how nice is it!

  5. Lim KSJC on Jan 7, 2012 at 12:31 am

    Rejoice!!! May u all can help Rinpoche to benefit more peoples around us… Thanks ur all with fold hand…

  6. Mc on Jan 7, 2012 at 5:59 am

    Congratulations to Mdm Lim, Phillis, Yurie and Yong!

    It is only natural for people to work but unfortunately most jobs are not Dharmic in nature and therefore do not cultivate a Dharmic mindset. Instead the opposite is often the case and before we know it, decades pass and we begin to define our lives by the jobs we do.

    Therefore it is an incredible opportunity to be allowed to work within a fun and healthy environment, learn a wide range of holistic skills, earn more than just sustenance (which immediately provides freedom the “Money-No-Enough” syndrome) and build a career which has no expiration date. Dharma work is the only work that keeps paying you dividends long after you are no longer able to perform the job physically.

    The early pioneers as well as present staff make it easy for people to practice practical dharma. It is literally Plug and Play/Pray.

    Once again, a big Congratulations to all of them.

  7. abby on Jan 9, 2012 at 5:19 pm

I rejoice for her and her husband! I rejoice for the understanding that her husband given. It’s very lucky to have blessings from the family.

    And a big congratulation to Swee Keong, Yurie and Phillis!
    It’s super lucky to work for Dharma and close with our own Guru :)

    I have been classmate with Madam Han Nee in the Lamrim class. The enthusiasm and the hardworking attitude that she has been showing is a very good example for all of us. With her life experience and her Dharma knowledge, I’m sure it will benefit more people. Bravo.

    The best anyone can do if not enlightenment for now, is to gain mastery over taking rebirth coupled with developing Three Principle Paths. Where you want to take rebirth can be determined by yourself if you practice the sacred Vajra Yogini Tantra thoroughly.

    I thought I would share this compilation for anyone wishing to practice without initiation and heavy commitments of tantra. Without initiation you can practice as I have compiled below. May you be blessed. May you be protected by the mystical, magical, peaceful, wrathful and secret emanations of Lord Manjushri until enlightenment.

    Amongst all pujas, the fire puja is considered the king of all Pujas. It is the most powerful of all pujas within Tibetan Buddhism and its purpose is basically to remove all obstacles and its stains – drima to enlightenment.

    Reincarnation forms the basis of Buddhism. It is the pillar of belief which gives rise to the cause and effect way of living or karma. Reincarnation has been followed not only by Buddhism but by the one billion Hindus currently and also in the past many religions including Christianity.

    From time to time we come across some very special people who have many huge challenges in life. I’ve not met him or had the pleasure to inquire further, but the documentary is touching. Whatever they wish to do, their surroundings are not easy or conducive. But they don’t give up. They don’t just say it’s too hard. They continue and persevere and then they succeed under the most trying circumstances.

    Dear Rinpoche, Thank you for your extensive works for living beings. Beautiful.

    I’ve just completed notes from an oral commentary on Samayavajra I received from the attendant to the late Trijang Dorjechang, Gelong Losang Choepel, and searching images found a link to your Samayavajra Puja page where you offer to perform various pujas for others.

    I’ve completed this preliminary many times, practice it daily within Lama Chopa, and was surprised and curious to see your mention of it as it is generally not talked about much…hence my request and receiving the commentary from Gen-la.

    I see mention on your page of a small and medium sized puja. Does this mean you have short and long sadhanas of Samayavajra, or is this referring to the length of the puja performed for others? Having a special connection, I am interested in any information or other sadhanas about this Guru-Deity. I use the sadhana included in Guide to Dakini Land, with slight augmentation based on Gen-la’s commentary.

    Thanks again.

    Yours,
    james

    The secret of a Master. ….. There was a silence. Then he said in a soft, almost shy voice, “You see, I don’t mind what happens”.

    I don’t mind what happens. That is the essence of inner freedom. It is a timeless spiritual truth: release attachment to outcomes, and deep inside oneself – one will feel good no matter what. One will feel good because one is connected to, one with, the energy of the universe, the beauty and power of creation itself.

    Or as the Master put it: “‘When you live with this awareness, this sensitivity, life has an astonishing way of taking care of you. Then there is no problem of security, of what people say or do not say, and that is the beauty of life.’

    do not say sweet things to someone for benefit
    of you and yours

    Where we live it is as if through our understanding of indigenous voice
    and vision and the nasty way the english stole the country away from the indigenous ones that time is near where we can ask everyone to not visit here and let this island repair itself

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!

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 person in the picture with me is a very humble, kind and knowledgable senior monk. I have the great merits to be considered his friend. He has been very kind to me on many occasions. I have the deepest respects for him and he has been serving others for nearly 40 years as the personal authorized oracle of Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo, Setrap, Shidak Gyenze. He was trained up as a monk oracle by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. He is fully qualified and benefits many with his oracular abilities. You can see him here in full trance in the monastery with hundreds of monks and people: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Xbghs-mdNc I thank Dorje Shugden for appearing in oracles to speak to us and I thank this oracle monk for his services. The authentic and beneficial oracle tradition of Tibet is 1,000 year old. Tsem Rinpoche

I've always not felt comfortable reading on computer screen for over a decade now. When I do, I feel I am slower. I thought it's just me, studies show it's most people. I am always faster and more efficient and catch more things when items are printed out for me. I enjoy books much more than reading online. I dread reading on the phone. I am super slow.Nice little trivia that affirms my habit.

  • Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    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.

"It was always about myself, what I wanted and that continued on for a while until 1994," she says. That year, she was on a quest for spiritual guidance in India and met a Buddhist monk named Tsem Rinpoche. Read more here: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-29986205

    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 everyone, All sentient beings deserve to live, be happy and not hurt, including animals. We should never hurt them or eat them. Look how much this chicken welcomes a hug and love. Observe carefully. Don't eat beings who can feel pain because the karma comes back. Tsem Rinpoche

    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
