Dear students and friends,

Guess who’s on the front cover of August 2012’s issue of Prestige Magazine??? Head Liaison and President of Kechara House Datuk May, Liaison Li Kim, and Li Kheng! The Phng ladies (mother and two daughters) were approached by the magazine to be interviewed, as they have inspired others through their secular and spiritual success. In Prestige’s August issue, there’s an 8-page feature article on their take on life. Wonderful pictures.

I have known Datuk May since 2007. When I first met her, she was direct, very vocal and had minimal Dharma knowledge… but through it all, I could see that she was a kind and intelligent lady who was very interested in spirituality. Datuk May is one of my students that has shown transformation within a few years in the Dharma… I’m very proud and happy for her… not for any other reason, but because she practices sincerely and has gained visible results from applying the Dharma into her life.

From her transformation, she has brought her two daughters into the Dharma. Now, Datuk May’s eldest daughter Li Kim is the CEO of the publication arm of Kechara, and her younger daughter Li Kheng is working in the Ladrang Dept of Kechara. How wonderful that their family motto is to benefit others. The two daughters work hard and sincerely for dharma and they dedicate their merits to their mom, dad and people they love. Selfless.

Do read the featured article of this wonderful trio and let me know what you think. Did their life story inspire you in anyway? Which picture did you enjoy the most?

Prestige – August 2012

 

 

Turning 65 years old come October; Datuk May Phng is one accomplished lady. Hers is a name highly regarded, not just within circles of the upper echelon but beyond. Renowned for her strong business acumen and firm hand in raising four children who are today strong, independent and successful adults in their own right, Datuk May has earned many monikers over the years, one of them being The Dragon Lady.

Datuk May is not just The Dragon Lady however: She is wife to Phng Hooi Siang whose family established the reputable Asia Motors, mother of four, grandmother of eight, director of a couple of business, member of the Board of Trustees of the Malaysian Rubber Export Promotion Council, president and head liaison of Buddhist organization Kechara, teacher, student and more. Though these titles may come across an ‘icing on the cake’ to many, hers is a life of challenges, sleepless nights, working round-the-clock, anxiety, stress and frustration, along with all that entails marrying into a wealthy yet traditionally conservative Chinese family.

Of her mother; Li Kim, the elder of two daughters and Datuk May’s second child, says, “My mother is pivotal in most of my key decisions in life. She is someone whom I respect very much and the epitome of what I believe to be an independent woman. She is brilliant and experienced, so I take her advice very seriously.”

Younger sister Li Kheng, says, “My mum and I share a relationship that’s trusting and inspiring. She has been my life coach, generously sharing her experiences and opinions that have contributed to my growth as a person. Since the age of 16, I have been chatting with mum about life philosophies deep into the night. Many of the principles I live by are based on the things I learned from those conversations.”

We go back to the early years to get a better picture of Datuk May who married into the Phng family at the age of 18.

“I met my husband when I was 17. I was then teaching primary school children at the Pudu English Girls’ School and taking shorthand and typing classes at night. I must’ve been quite a good teacher as the headmistress referred me to the famous teaching training facility at Kirkby in Liverpool, UK. I also received a scholarship to study in America but I thought, why waste time, better get married,” Datuk May remembers. It was back in the 60s then and the choice between a blossoming romance and studying abroad was clear. She chose the former, but it wasn’t all about eating, drinking, making merry and enjoying the perks of marrying into a wealthy family. Instead, she went to work for the late Tun Sir Henry HS Lee as his personal assistant, who was then in charge of the Development and Commercial Bank. Soon after, her father-in-law suggested that she work for the family at Asia Motors and that was where her training in business began. “The offer came just in time, thank goodness. I couldn’t see myself as a teacher forever. My mind was too wild,” claims Datuk May.

At the automobile industry’s peak, Datuk May managed four to five departments at Asia Motors. She even supervised the running of an oil palm estate and developed buildings under the family business’ property arm. How Datuk May managed to oversee all these enterprises without having gone through the whole nine yards of a formal education was simply because of her fearless nature and sheer determination.

“I remember the time my father-in-law told me to start developing buildings. I had to work with architects, engineers and contractors. I didn’t even know what piling was or even what columns or beams were, for that matter,” Datuk May reveals. She relates how she pushed herself to learn as much as she could, even if it meant working round-the-clock overseeing the development of buildings along the highway and building Malaysia’s first ice-skating rink at what was known at the time as Asia Jaya. “Back in those days when most married women were homemakers, I applaud my father-in-law who believed in the power and capability of women despite the fact that he was one of the most traditional men I’ve ever known! For him, when it comes to smarts, it didn’t matter whether you were male or female. Much of my business training come from him.”

Datuk May continued to work, building her family business empire even as she and her husband began to grow their family. She tells of the time her father-in-law was overjoyed when she bore the family their first grandchild, Phng Wee Kiat – the start of the third generation. “My father-in-law threw a huge ‘full moon’ party and because of the Phng family status, everybody congratulated my father-in-law instead of me,” says Datuk May who was barely 20 years old then. Second child Li Kim was born four years later.

“After my two brothers-in-law got married and started their own families, my father-in-law came up to me and said I was hopeless, having given him only two children in a span of 10 years,” says Datuk May. “I knew I’d better quickly bear another child or my father-in-law would get a second wife for his son. The problem was, I wasn’t on any birth control and simply wasn’t getting pregnant. Moreover, both the other daughter-in-law were producing girls. On the birth of my third child Li Kheng eight years later, my father-in-law came into the delivery room and said, ‘Even you have given me a granddaughter.’ I assured him that around this time next year, I will give him a grandson. At that time, my gynecologist Dr McCoy asked me how I was going to do such a thing as I wasn’t very fertile. I told him, don’t worry, I’ll do it.” Determined, she surely was and that was exactly what she did 13 months later with her son, Wee Liang. “You’ll be amazed at what the mind can do,” says Datuk May. “At this time, there were nine Phng grandchildren. Two were boys and they were both my sons.”

Datuk May then shares about the passing of her father-in-law in 1984, followed by her mother-in-law six months later. Due to disputes within the family, the business was liquidated. By that time, Datuk May had already started her own medical glove manufacturing business, Ampri Rubberware Industries, which she ran together with Li Kim upon her daughter’s graduation.

Li Kim, a Bachelor of Science graduate armed with a degree in Business Administration from the Pepperdine University in California, shares that being the daughter of the founder made little difference as she had to start from scratch like any other employee. She refers to her childhood as one where she was treated like  a princess and enjoyed an extremely privileged lifestyle: “Once during an outing with our relatives, my brother and I spotted an organ and a piano which we both liked. Next thing we knew the piano and organ were delivered to the house,” says Li Kim. As the two eldest grandchildren and the first two of the third generation in the Phng family, Li Kim and her brother grew up with many golden opportunities. Armed with maids and body guards, they were sent to study at a boarding school in Singapore and lived with their grandparents over the weekends.

Upon the passing of their grandparents, Li Kim returned to complete her secondary education at an international school in KL and then, went off to study in the US for three-and-a-half years. “I contemplated taking up law like my father or perhaps becoming an actress,” says Li Kim who finally took up business with the expectation to work in her mother’s glove manufacturing company. Happy-go-lucky by nature and one who knew how to have a good time in any situation, Li Kim doesn’t deny that her parents never gave in to her whims and fancies. In fact, she says, “They were clear from the very beginning with their terms and conditions, rules and regulations.”

The eldest daughter relates how her father gave her an ultimatum to get her degree before she turned 22. “I did and graduated one month just before my 22nd birthday,” she says with a smile. Of Li Kim, Datuk May says, “Li Kim has a very quick mind and she operates with more freedom. She is not afraid of what people think of her and so, she’s not so pressured to produce results. Being the eldest granddaughter in the family, along with my elder son, they were raised more by my husband’s parents and totally spoilt by their aunties and uncles.” Like her enterprising mother however, Li Kim simultaneously took on a role with a German dental company, managing the company’s outsource manufacturing facility in Malaysia while working with her mother to run the glove manufacturing business. After eight years of managing both these manufacturing establishments, Li Kim ventured into other avenues dealing in marketing and digital media.

Datuk May sold off the glove manufacturing business after 10 successful years and helped her son to start a company setting up ‘clean rooms.’ “It’s a niche market and my son became quite a specialist at it,” says the proud mother, who later handed the company over to her son.

Datuk May then decided to take it easy, enjoying the things she never had much time for. “I began travelling, playing mahjong, reading all the books I’ve always wanted to read, going to the gym to exercise, buying jewellery and going shopping,” she says. As one who has always thrived on challenges however, that period didn’t last very long. Restless, the businesswoman soon felt the pace in Malaysia a tad too slow for her liking.

Datuk May recalls visiting The People’s Republic of China back in 1999 and 2000 when its economy was just booming. It was also at this time that a business opportunity arose in China and Datuk May saw her chance to put her foot in the door.

In the meantime, Li Kheng, a graduate from Ecole Hotelier de Lausanne in Switzerland, had just resigned from a position at The Parkroyal Hotel. The second daughter says, “As an academic who only went from school to home with a few tuition teacher visits in between, I was fearful that I would grow up clever but not smart. Despite signing the Book of Excellence and graduating as the top girl from one of the most prestigious hospitality schools in the world, I dreaded entering the ‘real world’ after graduation as I was fearful that I would fall flat on my face.”

Still, the young and determined Li Kheng had plans of her own. She aimed to become general manager of a five-star hotel by the age of 35 and swore never to be roped into the family business. Fate had other plans however. Today, Li Kheng is CEO of The Coffee Bean Shanghai and runs a chain of 30 (soon to be 36) Coffee Bean outlets throughout China – all under the family business.

“The Coffee Bean was on the brink of going bankrupt at the end of November 2004. As I had just left The Parkroyal, my family thought I could go over, monitor the liquidation and find a job in the world’s upcoming cosmopolitan city. So, I got on the plane with zero management experience and no idea of what was to come,” says Li Kheng. “I like to share with young people that life, to quote Forrest Gump, is like a box of chocolates. We should never become too fixated on what we should have, could have or would have done. Instead, we have to embrace the blessings we’ve been given and make the best of the situation we find ourselves in,” she says.

On gender issues and running a business in China, Li Kheng says, “I have a lot of fun doing business as a woman in China. Equality between genders is present in China especially in big cities. For those who have doubts, my advice is: do not focus on the obstacles of being a woman as you will only create a situation for those obstacles to grow. Harness the power of your feminine energy – we all have feminine and masculine energies, the yin and yang – to create the results you want. I believe we should enjoy being treated like ‘ladies’ so that the men get the opportunity to be gentlemen. This becomes the one experience in business that men cannot get from other men.”

All three women take pride in who they are and agree that women should take pride in their femininity. “Being feminine does not equate to being a damsel in distress,” says Datuk May. “Feminity is beautiful, strong, confident, vulnerable, honest and open. It’s the one thing we women can naturally do better than men simply by being who we are. Being a woman does not mean beating down on the men or being a feminist. A powerful synergy can be formed when men and women live in harmony.”

While their careers and businesses are extremely important to the three ladies, when asked about the real turning point in their lives, it was spirituality and awareness, and not the bottom line. “I came to a point when I realized I was known only within my inner circle. I was comfortable only with those at my level who accepted my rigidness and submitted to my wish to do things my way,” shares Datuk May. “I got rid of people who didn’t do things the way I wanted them done – a much easier choice for me although it was at times discomfiting. I would get into bouts of depression asking myself why I did this to others.”

At that time, Datuk May was a trainer at Asia Works and had facilitated about six leadership programmes when she received a vision. “That vision was for everyone to live in peace. In doing so, each person creates a better environment which enables everybody to live in inner peace, thus creating a better world.” Over time however, she found her efforts at Asia Works futile and started wondering if there was something else she could do. This led her to meeting her spiritual guide HE Tsem Rinpoche in July 2007.

“I was greatly moved after a conversation with Rinpoche, spiritual advisor of Kechara, about spirituality and bringing benefit to others. I thought to myself, this was a place where my vision could grow. I realized after our conversation that while HE’s vision was miles ahead and much bigger in scope than mine, our visions were along a similar path,” says Datuk May whose spiritual journey transformed as she began to practice Dharma.

Datuk May’s gradual transformation did not escape unnoticed by her children and today, every family member is an active member of the Kechara Buddhist organization. Li Kheng, together with a few friends, set up Kechara Tea House – Kind & Kinda Delicious and Kechara Soup Kitchen in Shanghai. “Kechara Tea House is an F&B concept developed based on the teachings of HE Tsem Rinpoche on kindness and respect to the environment,” she shares. “It is a vegetarian bistro that serves a variety of healthy dishes that use natural ingredients gifted to us by nature. Unlike most vegetarian concepts that create a mock-meat menu, here we reintroduce the deliciousness of vegetables. We accompany our wide array of dishes with innovative tea concoctions like Ruby Tara MarTEAni made with roselle, hawthorn and licorice, as well as Beauty Vitamin made with oolong tea and fresh snow pear juice.”

In KL, Li Kim has come to run one of 13 departments under the Kechara umbrella as CEO of Kechara Media & Publications. She says, “I may have been born a Buddhist or Taoist but spirituality to me was merely a concept. Praying on Wesak Day and on the eighth day of Chinese New Year was about as religious as I could be.” She had her first encounter with HE at a private function in 2009, which she says left her thinking, “Buddhism ain’t that boring after all.”

Li Kim says, “My aspiration has always been to be happy within and without. It hasn’t changed since coming to Kechara. In fact, it’s here that I find myself closer to achieving my aspiration. Kechara has helped me find true happiness that comes from a deep inner self. My aspiration now is to be happy with a purpose,” says the mother of three boys.

Under Li Kim’s leadership as CEO, Kechara Media & Publications (KMP) has published my inspirational books and a number of bestsellers such as the recently released The Promise and Tales My Lama Told Me, along with previous titles like If Not Now When, 108 Ways To Grab My Apples, PEACE, Gurus for Hire, Why I Make Myself Unhappy and Snakes, Roosters and Pigs. Together with her team, she has not only put KMP on the global map but through her books and the essence of her Dharma work, has shared her Spiritual Guide’s thoughts and teachings with the rest of the world.

In addition, Li Kim has also taken paper to television, with KMP’s first of 13 television series soon to be aired on NTV7 called Tsem’s Paranormal Zone. “The show is broken down into entertaining and informative 30-minute segments. It’s basically about spirits that are really all around us,” she says, not wanting to let the cat fully out of the bag. As the host of the programme, Li Kim is one step closer to her lifelong dream of becoming an actress.

The three ladies believe that Malaysian businesswomen should network more in support of one another. “We should stop giving into the rules and regulations of the world, stop falling prey to oppression, suppression and repression. We cannot relate to our power and empowerment in the same way a man does. We should look at the strengths and gifts we have as women and use them well,” says Datuk May passionately. “And I personally don’t think Asian women are any more restricted or restrained than women in other parts of the world. Just look at Indira Gandhi, the first female prime minister. We women are very strong in many ways.”

Datuk May encourages all women to stand up for themselves and be proud of who they are. In a lesson she’s always taught her children: “Our situation is always in our hands. An independent person is one who dares to do what he or she wants to do – mistakes and all. Don’t let society’s norms entrap you. When Malaysia received independence in 1957, did you think the leaders were going to regret it? They decided they had to do something for things to change. We will always make mistakes but don’t let mistakes pull you back. If you fall, just get up and go on – that’s independence. It has nothing to do with your social status, money or education. It’s all in the mindset. Independence is how well you take what you have in your life and what you do with it.”

    It’s an inspiring sharing by Datuk May, Li Kim and Li Kheng. I really like how Datuk May’s interprets independence which I quoted “Our situation is always in our hands. An independent person is one who dares to do what he or she wants to do – mistakes and all. Don’t let society’s norms entrap you. When Malaysia received independence in 1957, did you think the leaders were going to regret it? They decided they had to do something for things to change. We will always make mistakes but don’t let mistakes pull you back. If you fall, just get up and go on – that’s independence. It has nothing to do with your social status, money or education. It’s all in the mindset. Independence is how well you take what you have in your life and what you do with it.”

    We should never complain what we don’t have instead use all the tools and things that we have to work out the problem or situation we encountered. Always be humble to learn from others. Most importantly never be jealous of what others have that you don’t instead work hard to get what you want. From the quote above I learnt that we should never be afraid to make mistakes and learn from it. Never complain and whine, just work with it.

    All the pictures are wonderfully taken with the sense of elegance and some superior feeling which suited the title of this article “Women Rule”

  2. HelenaC on Dec 30, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    3 of them are a wonder woman! Gorgeous in Dharma!!

  3. Sheryl KH (JB) on Dec 30, 2012 at 2:28 pm

    When I see the first picture, it makes me feel that somehow this mother and daughter relationship is blessed prior to their current life. Li Kim through past life regression hypnosis in one of Tsem’s Paranormal show has also said that her then mother looked like Datuk May Phng. We have also learnt that there is no such thing as coincidence, so somehow, through some interesting twist and turn, three of them come together again and live as a family.

    I like very much to read that Datuk May Phng has always been an inpirational figure for both daughters. How nice is it that the children can seek advise from their parents when they need it. Very fortunate.

    I can read that Datuk May is a very stout woman and I admire this quality very much. I like especially the last paragraph in this article that teaches us on independence. We all have only one life and so we got to live it as much as possible without regrets.

  4. sarahyap on Dec 30, 2012 at 6:58 pm

    Very nice article on Datuk Phng, Li Kim and Li Kheng. I like how they were very honest with their life story and talked about the ups and downs in their lives… I feel Datuk May’s life really inspiring, a very powerful and strong lady.

  5. Sharon Saw on Dec 31, 2012 at 12:21 am

    These three ladies are truly inspirational. Although they are related, they are different in character but the same trait of strength, determination and independence is very evident. Datuk May has certainly set a good example to her daughters for them both to join Dharma full time after having successful careers.

    The three of them look great in the photoshoot, despite being taken after an all-night meeting, which just shows how steely these three ladies are. I find all three of them inspirational – for their openness to the Dharma and their genuine care for their Dharma family. Datuk May in particular, only met Dharma when she was 60 years old, which shows that you are never too old to learn and to constantly change for the better.

    My favourite shot is the cover shot, which shows three elegant, powerful ladies who now have devoted their lives to benefiting others – which is reflective of the teachings and compassion of their Guru, Tsem Rinpoche.

  6. Andrew Boon on Dec 31, 2012 at 12:39 am

    Datuk May has been an inspiring President of Kechara for two terms running and there is no sign of her slowing down. In fact, she has inspired both her daughter into Dharma! And both Li Kim and Li Kheng are now both in the Ladrang serving our beloved Rinpoche!

    Two generation of strong beautiful women… women who are to be reckoned with. Women who are Dharmically inclined. But most of all women that we love!

  7. Daisy on Dec 31, 2012 at 9:47 am

    To me, this is a very true and inspiring story! Datuk May is my icon. She is well educated and with her right asset/timing and super positive mind to bring out the best despite thinking she is just a female/mother of four. I like the photo that shows the strength of individual, where Datuk May was sitting at the back (firmed/stable/confident), Li Kim the most front (bold/freedom/cheerful) and Li Kheng (soft/feminine) posing next to her mom. It shows the women quality should compose of these 3 perfect combinations, Inner (heart/mind stable), speech (soft /persuasive), and appearance (smile/positive). 温婉内敛,外柔内刚. Rejoice Datuk May & Family.

  8. Judy on Dec 31, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    Here is a family who have whatever most of us could only dream of, and yet, Datuk May, Li Kim & Li Kheng have let go of a good life and luxuries to serve their Guru and be close to Dharma. I admire and respect these three power women.

  9. Shin on Jan 2, 2013 at 2:35 am

    I am very happy that a magazine like Prestige are inspired by these great women and decide to feature them.

    Datuk May, Li Kim and Li Kheng are not just successful businesswomen, they are also great motivators, and mentors/ guides who will bring out the best in you, leading by example. I am lucky to have met and work with these great women.

    Different from other businesswomen I know, they put spirituality and benefiting others their priority, instead of just totally focusing on profit and how to ‘utilise’ (exploit?!) human resources.

    It’s also good to read about how each of them as individual, rise to the challenge they face in different aspects of their lives, and like what Li Kheng said, embrace the blessings we’ve been given and make the best of the situation we find ourselves in.

    I am also glad that these women showed other women out there that despite being successful businesswomen, you can also embrace spirituality and volunteer your time for a higher cause – spiritual and personal development of others.

  10. Doreen Teoh on Jan 2, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    Datuk May has always been an inspiration to me. Her strong will, determination, hard working, and her work that she has dedicated to her family, career, and Dharma especially to Kechara and Rinpoche is such a great admiration.

    Datuk May is a representation of our Iron Lady in Malaysia. I love the pictures of Datuk May with her two beautiful, confidence daughters. It shows a very good bonding of mother and daughters.

    Thank you, Datuk May for what you have done for my family in Kechara.

  11. Paris on Jan 3, 2013 at 1:13 am

    Beautiful! And what an honour it has been to work with these powerful ladies. The world is a better place for having the three of them in it and I am proud to be able to call Li Kim and Li Kheng my friends and my sisters and Datuk May, a spiritual fairy godmother like no other. Just as the article highlights, it’s wonderful to see a mother working and practising alongside her two daughters, and to see how they each support and inspire each other in the Dharma. This is one of the best things we can do together with our families and the people we love. Dinner parties, holidays, going out and all that is fun and good, but ultimately, it doesn’t really help us in the long term or at the most crucial moment of death… I’ve come to really understand that the best thing we can do for the people we love so much, like our sisters / brothers and parents is to help them connect as much as possible to spirituality, positive karmic imprints and lots of merit.

    I have had the good fortune to work directly with Li Kim when we were both in KMP together, and later, with Li Kheng in the Ladrang. And what wonderful times we’ve had – my spiritual journey in Kechara and in Dharma would definitely not have been the same without these two dearest friends. It is such an honour to know two beuatiful, talented girls like these, who can have and do any and everything they want in the world, but who have chosen instead to devote a life to helping others through the Dharma – and really, it is when they’re right in the midst of doing a Dharma project, coordinating something in Kechara, working knee deep in soil at KFR that you see them at their most brilliant. Thank you both for being such wonderful friends, the true sisters that I have never had and an incredible inspiration for the millions of other girls out there in the world who will look to you and see just how amazing spiritual practice can be.

  12. Lucas Roth on Jan 3, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    nice job mom! nice job to all of them. i am happy that they are who they are now, if not they would be totally different. they are all very hardworking, inspiring and kind people. please let them live long so that they can benefit others. :D

  13. Milly on Jan 4, 2013 at 10:37 am

    Datuk May is such an inspiration to everyone. A hands-on President of Kechara who offers her time and financial assistance untirelessly. Datuk May is blessed with children who are very committed to the Dharma. I wish Datuk May,Li Khim and Li Kheng every success.

  14. Sharon on Jan 5, 2013 at 11:14 pm

    Amazing women indeed. I would love to know how Datuk May steered her daughters towards Dharma to become the gorgeous and accomplished women they are today.

  15. Wan Wai Meng on Jan 7, 2013 at 6:23 pm

    This is an amazing story about this three women and their lives. Mao has always said that women held half the world up and this is rightly so within Kechara as well. In Kechara many key positions are held by ladies and these women are absolutely spiritual to the max. It is a pleasure to be working side by side with these ladies.

  16. uncle eddie on Jan 12, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    What Dato May had said to all women, including her two daughters is, “To stand up for themselves”, is indeed very inspiring and true to the core. We must be brave enough to pursue a life of purpose and passion, have faith that dreams or visions can come through, believe in possibilities and be aware that self-imposed limits can prevent us from moving beyond situations that may be undesirable! Whether we believe it or not, some women do truly make better Leaders than men, if not for the long prejudiced fact many are overlooked based solely on gender. Over the last decades, we have seen a female Prime Minister in England, India, and Pakistan, just to mention a few. Many more will come forth on the scene in the near future. So dont lose hope ladies!

  17. Jean Ai on Jan 15, 2013 at 1:36 am

    You know what the best thing about this article is? I have had the privilege of working with all three women and NOTHING in this article is a lie or embellishment. They really are as strong, intelligent, tenacious and highly accomplished as the Prestige has painted them to be.

    Kechara really is built on female energy, and appropriately so since we’re named after the paradise of the female Buddha Vajrayogini. Datuk May and her daughters built up Kechara House, Dato Ruby built up Kechara Soup Kitchen, Irene built Kechara Oasis, Datin Ng was Rinpoche’s first major sponsor who cleared our debts accrued as a result of opening KH1 (our first Dharma centre!)…at every crucial stage and milestone in Kechara’s history, there’s always been a strong woman holdiing up the roof ;)

  18. philyong on Jan 30, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    I have personally worked with all 3 ladies and I gotta say they are really passionate about the Dharma.

    Datuk May had many successful ventures in her life and when she first met Kechara, she was at a stage where she could comfortably retire but yet she chose to walk the Dharma path. Not only that, she also got Li Kim and Li Kheng involved because she knows there is no other way better than Dharma.

    It is nice to see the mother and daughters team working together for a good cause, at the very least although in Kechara it is much more than just a good cause. I hope this family will inspire more people to come in to the Dharma. They truly are a good example of a Dharma family.

Blog Chat Etiquette

These are some simple guidelines to make the blog chat room a positive, enjoyable and enlightening experience for everyone. Please note that as this is a chat room, we chat! Do not flood the chat room, or post without interacting with others.

EXPAND
Be friendly

Remember that these are real people you are chatting with. They may have different opinions to you and come from different cultures. Treat them as you would face to face, and respect their opinions, and they will treat you the same.

Be Patient

Give the room a chance to answer you. Patience is a virtue. And if after awhile, people don't respond, perhaps they don't know the answer or they did not see your question. Do ask again or address someone directly. Do not be offended if people do not or are unable to respond to you.

Be Relevant

This is the blog of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche. Please respect this space. We request that all participants here are respectful of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and his organisation, Kechara.

Be polite

Avoid the use of language or attitudes which may be offensive to others. If someone is disrespectful to you, ignore them instead of arguing with them.

Please be advised that anyone who contravenes these guidelines may be banned from the chatroom. Banning is at the complete discretion of the administrator of this blog. Should anyone wish to make an appeal or complaint about the behaviour of someone in the chatroom, please copy paste the relevant chat in an email to us at [email protected] and state the date and time of the respective conversation.

Please let this be a conducive space for discussions, both light and profound.

    I have noticed that accurate information about Dorje Shugden’s practice and lineage is difficult to come by online. This is not surprising as due to unfortunate circumstances, the practice of this very beneficial deity has been muted in the last 20 years, which explains the lack of teachings available for the public online. So I thought we, in Kechara, should create videos to share and teach Dorje Shugden’s practice to others so that people from all around the world can learn about this beneficial practice. Dorje Shugden is not the only practice we do in Kechara, but it is a practice that has been passed on by my teachers to me, and I have in turn passed them on to my students.

    Kache Marpo is a very ancient Buddhist deity originating from the time of Guru Rinpoche, a thousand years ago. Kache Marpo was installed as one of the Dharma Protectors in Samye Monastery by Guru Rinpoche in the past, as one of the protective divinities to help increase the growth of Dharma in the country of Tibet and the surrounding areas. Kache Marpo is considered an emanation of Hayagriva, which makes him a fully accomplished enlightened being and also a Buddha who appears in a worldly form.

    We don’t want the hurting of others to be a normal process and we can stop that by beginning with ourselves. We ourselves should hurt no one and take up causes to stop the pain of others. To not sit by and watch. Please take two minutes and ten seconds to see this video and what another being goes through in one day. Don’t feel pain for yourself in watching this but for the the subject in the video.

    If you truly love your dog, you will know everything about your dog, their smell, body language and facial expressions. You know their favorite foods and toys, and you know the sound of their bark.

    In Georgia, USA, Mr Wilson lost his dog for almost a week and was on the verge of giving up on finding her. In the end, it was the dog’s bark that helped bring her home to her owner, who had missed her dearly.

    Dramatic evidence has revealed the presence of Siddhartha Gautama, the man who became Buddha, as far west as Persia. Family seals and records found at Persepolis, the ancient capital of the fourth Persian Emperor, Darius the Great, have been identified and associated with the names of Siddhartha Gautama and his father, Suddhodana Gautama.

    Answer for you some simple questions about the ban on Dorje Shugden, using logic and evidence. We offer this information to you with the hope that it brings clarity to your understanding about the ban. Our intention is not to convert you to the practice of Dorje Shugden, but simply for you to understand the reasons behind the ban, why it is so illogical and therefore why it must be lifted.

    Pabongkha Rinpoche Dechen Nyingpo Jampa Tenzin Trinlay Gyatso was one of the greatest masters of the 20th century and one the most influential teachers in Tibet. He was unique in his ability to bring the complex ancient teachings to the monks as well as to the laypeople’s level of comprehension. Hence, it is through him that a great number of lay people were able to learn and benefit from the Dharma. For this reason, he was known as the teacher for the common man and monks. Similar to Buddha Shakyamuni who taught an enormous variety of people about 2,500 years ago, Pabongkha Rinpoche did not teach from some predetermined syllabus. Instead, he taught according to the spiritual needs of the listeners.

    When we invite a Buddha statue home, it is customary to have the statue filled with mantras, blessed items from lamas, and other holy objects. However, has it ever occurred to you that a mummified monk could also have been inserted into a Buddha statue? Doctors did a CT scan on this statue and found that although it looks just like any Buddha statue from the outside, on the inside was a monk mummified 1,000 years ago.

    Nestled in a tranquil hillside, Hong Kong’s newest Buddhist monastery features bulletproof VIP rooms and the world’s second tallest statue of the Goddess of Mercy — a Buddhist deity.

    The monastery is funded entirely by Asia’s richest man, Li Ka-shing, who contributed $193 million from his personal foundation to the building project.

    Researchers from Stanford University, along with scientists from Belgium and Taiwan, found that exposing people of different spiritual backgrounds to Buddhist concepts was effective in not only undercutting prejudice but also in promoting prosociality, which includes having a sense of responsibility for others, feelings of compassion and empathy.

    Sam Simon, was diagnosed with terminal colon cancer last year. At age 58, he was told by his doctors that he only had 3 to 6 months left to live… Instead of having a “why me?” attitude, Sam went full speed with his existing philanthropic work.

    Samuel “Sam” Simon is an American director, producer, writer, boxing manager and philanthropist. Sam is most well-known as the co-creator of The Simpsons.

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

Look at this thoughtful gift presented to me today by a very kind person who I respect a lot. Lew is hardworking and thoughtful in his own quiet way. When people present a gift, it's not always something they pick up at the store, but something they thought out just for you is always touching. They thought it out, planned it and had you in mind when they made it. Thank you Lew. I really like everything about bigfoot and I will add to my collection.

    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.
