Question asked by Sunny

You did a article on Yumar Gyalchen who is an emanation of Kache Marpo. In that article it stated that H.E. the 1st Panglung Tulku chose Yumar Gyalchen to be the protector of the Panglung Oracle lineage and his residence which is today located at Kechara Forest Retreat.

It is with great sadness that I must report that the current 4th Panglung Tulku past away on August 19, 2022 in Germany. Please pray for his swift return.

My question is, since Yumar Gyalchen is an emanation of Kache Marpo who is considered to be both a Yidam and Dharmapala can we look at Yumar Gyalchen as both a Yidam and a Dharmapala?

  1. Reply by pastor

    Dear Sunny,

    Yes, we are aware that His Eminence Panglung Tulku entered clear light last year. We have done prayers for his swift return.

    In regards to Yumar Gyalchen/Kache Marpo, they are not Yidams but Dharma Protectors. They are emanations of the Yidam Hayagriva in the form of Protectors. Hence they are practiced as Dharma Protectors, although their natures are enlightened. Hayagriva himself is practiced as a Yidam. I hope that helps. Thank you.

Hi Pastors, Do you know what this prayer to Avalokitesvara is?

    Dear Anonymous,

    It is a very beautiful prayer! Unfortunately, I do not know the prayer. It seems like a prayer from either the Kagyu or Nyingma traditions, so am not familiar with it. However, it is a general and beautiful prayer to Chenrezig, so it is perfectly fine to listen to. In fact, it will plant the seeds of Chenrezig in your mind every time you do listen to it. Sorry I couldn’t help you more. Thank you.

Question asked by Anonymous

Hello, I have a few questions. Are Buddhas all-powerful in the context of Abrahamic religions or are Buddhas "all-powerful" in a unique way? How can I make protector rice without someone taking trance of a protector? Who are Chandraprabha and Suryaprabha and what are their mantras?

  1. Reply by pastor

    Dear Anonymous,

    Buddhas are not “all-powerful” as in the context of Abrahamic religions. In the Buddhist context such “all-powerful” beings do not exist.

    Protector Rice cannot be made by any other means apart from a Protector taking trance to bless the rice. However, you can bless normal rice by reciting mantra and blowing the energy of the mantra on the rice. However, this is not the same as protector rice, and the use of such rice is different than protector rice. Blessing rice by blowing mantras is usually done in a retreat setting. The rice is then sprinkled on land, to help bless the land.

    Chandraprabha and Suryaprabha are two of the attendants of Medicine Buddha. They are said to be brothers and are both Bodhisattvas. As far as practice within the Tibetan Tradition is concerned, they do not have their own mantras. When you pray to Medicine Buddha, as his attendants, they come to help you as you have already called upon Medicine Buddha for his help.

    Thank you.

Question asked by Anaaya🌻🎃

Hello dear Pastor!
I recently read a book the “Dao” and the book mentions that even the stage of nirvana is not a permanent stage. Souls that get pure and ultimately reach nirvana also have to come back to the world and the souls that live in the world will ultimately reach nirvana and this cycle goes on forever . According to that book, this is how Dao sustains itself.
My question is, isn’t this belief in contradiction to the buddisht understanding of nirvana which is supposed to be a permanent liberation from the cycle of death and rebirth?

  1. Reply by pastor

    Dear Anaaya,

    Thanks for your question. Daoism is not the same as Buddhism, they are two distinct religious systems. Just like, for example, Chritianity and Buddhism are two distinct religions. Some terminology in English may be the same due to ease of translation, however they are two very different religious systems with different beliefs, practices, etc. So yes, that belief does contradict Buddhist belief, as in Buddhist belief nirvana is the highest state that is permanent. I hope this helps. Thank you.

Question asked by Gale

Dear, Pastors. Thank you for your kindness for answering this question. I have come across a website here that says this.

"Since Lam-rim Chen-mo and Bodhicaryavatara explain that a non-bodhisattva getting angry with a bodhisattva for one second destroys one thousand eons of merits, you would think that giving rise to heresy or anger toward the guru would destroy much more merit than that. Many hundreds of thousands of eons of merit should be destroyed, and realizations should be delayed and sufferings experienced in the hell realm for many hundreds of thousands of eons. That point is one to be analyzed.

However, it is very heavy negative karma for a non-bodhisattva to get angry with a bodhisattva for even one second."

In the far past, due to my ignorance, I have gotten angry with the wonderful Bodhisattva Guan Yin. I want to repent for it. Is it too late for me?

  1. Reply by pastor

    Hello Gale,

    Yes, what you have quoted is indeed correct. As you have said, you have gotten angry at the Bodhisattva Guan Yin, known as Chenrezig in Tibetan Buddhism. According to the teachings, yes, you would have destroyed merits due to this. However, Buddhism is not a fatalistic religion. You can build up those merits again through your practice, whether formal practices such as pujas and prayers, or by engaging in the actually teachings, transforming your mind and becoming a better person. Is Chenrezig going to be angry with you? Of course not. Chenrezig has not anger whatsoever and is only full of love and compassion towards you. So even in the past if you have been angry at Chenrezig, for whatever reason, Chenrezig will forgive you and still bless you and help to increase your merits. As long as you feel remorse for your actions and also fix what you have done, by transforming your mind for the better. A formal way of doing this is using the Four Opponent Powers in relation to a purification practice. But even just going in front of your Chenrezig statue, feeling remorse and apologising is still very good because it is from your heart.

    I hope this helps. Thank you.

Question asked by Clea

hi I hear this is where I can ask question. I want to connect with Green Tara because I saw a tik tok that said I can call on her whenever to relieve my sufferings. but I am scared to call upon spirits and what if she's angry with me? I'm just really unsure.. Hope you can answer my question, thanks.

  1. Reply by pastor

    Dear Clea,

    Green Tara is not a spirit, she is a fully enlightened being. As such, there is no way that she can be angry with you because she has absolutely no anger. All she has is compassion and love for you and all other sentient beings. When you call Green Tara she will only bless you and those around you.

    There is a big difference between a fully enlightened being and a spirit. You can read more about Tara here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/homage-to-the-supreme-mother-tara.html

Question asked by Ony

Dear Pastors

Is it good to do shize’s sadhana on behalf of someone who is very angry and resentful towards parents/family members. Disheartened to see disharmony in the family. According to Hindu astrology this person has Ketu in 2nd house and ketu is meant to be cause separation where it resides. The said person exhibits such signs, i.e, disconnect and lack of regard for parents. Also harsh and cutting speech because apparently 2nd house also resembles speech..

  1. Reply by pastor

    Dear Ony,

    Yes Shize practice would be good to dedicate to him. However, it would of course be better for the person himself to do the practice. But I understand that this may not be possible at this point. Green Tara is also another very effective practice for solving disharmony within the family, and disharmony with others in general. His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche often advised Green Tara practice and pujas for familial disharmony.

    However, doing the practices/pujas by themselves will not provide a miracle solution to the problem. Both the son and family members must remember that they are a family and love each other. That way, they energies of the practices/pujas will work quicker to resolve the issues. If you are close to this person, then it would be very good if you can help him to figure out why he is acting like this and help him move past it, so there is harmony again. Pujas/practices create the conditions for things to happen, but we also need to put in effort to solve the issues ourselves. The practices/pujas help us to achieve our goals quicker. So after doing such practices, if even only a little amount of effort is put in to restoring harmony, our efforts will be very effectice. I hope this explanation helps.

Question asked by Anonymous

Hello, I was wondering the difference between arhat, Bodhisattva, and Buddha. The definitions alone get confusing but a whole other layer of complexity is added once you hear the differing opinions/definitions from Theravada ans Mahayana

  1. Reply by pastor

    Dear Anonymous,

    This explanation accords to the Tibet Buddhist understanding of the terms:

    A Buddha is a completely Enlightened being, meaning they are no longer bound by samsara. They have completely overcome what are known as the two obsuractions – emotional obscurations and cognitive obscurations.

    An Arhat is a liberated being, meaning they are no longer bound by samsara. However they have not compeltely overcome all of their obscurations yet. There are said to be two levels of Arhats – Pratyekaya Buddha and Shravaka.

    A Bodhisattva is a practitioner on the Mahayana path who has ignited Bodhicitta in their minds. There are 10 main levels of a Bodhisattva, at the end of which they attain Buddhahood. Bodhisattvas ‘bypass’ the level of the Arhat on their journey to complete enlightenment.

    Both Arhats and Bodhisattvas still need to practice in some way, as they are not full enlightened yet.

    So Buddhahood is the ultimate. Arhats and Bodhisattvas are practitioners on the way there but are far, far, far more advanced then normal people. In fact, the state of an Arhat is outside of the bounds of samsara itself.

    The difference between the path of the Arhats and the path of the Bodhisattvas can generally be said to be different in terms of time and practice. The Bodhisattva path is said to be quicker towards enlightenment. Also in terms of practice, the path of the Arhats stressed abandoning or causing afflictive emotions to cease, whereas the Bodhisattva path is about the purification of afflictive emotions.

    There are many other differences and ways of explaining it as well, but too much to do here in this short space. You can read the Lamrim teachings, which talk about this in detail. I hope this helps. Thank you.

Question asked by Wanru Yan

Hello and I hope you're having a nice day so far. I have a few questions: ● I was reading volume one of Lamrim Chenmo and I was extremely stuck on chapter 6. I was conpletely lost. Everything from the terminology and the eording were all just confusing to me. I hope you can explain the chapter. ● What is stablization meditation and analytical meditation? ● Is our karma stronger than the Buddhas? Because I heard that Buddhas cannot save us ● I hear from some Theravadins that Mahayana is a perverted/mistakened path of Buddhism. They old this opinion stringly especially towards Vajrayana because how come the Buddha taught about "divine pride," "divine lust," and so on. Being that they are the oldest school of Buddhism, are they right or wrong?

  1. Reply by pastor

    Dear Wanru Yan,

    Let me see how I can help:

    1. In regards to Chapter 6 of the Lamrim Chenmo. This chapter is to clarifies misconceptions about what meditation is and it’s purpose and uses. It’s too much to go into here as it is very philosophical and goes into a lot of detail. Lama Tsongkhapa’s Lamrim Chenmo presupposes that the person who is reading it has a foundational level of knowledge in monastic education, which would already have covered some of what he is talking about. Hence, the text, and the English translation of the text can get very confusing for more people these days who do not have that foundation. That why, for modern lay people, is advisable to study a shorter Lamrim text first, so you can familiarise yourself with the concepts first, before moving on to Lama Tsongkhapa’s Lamrim Chenmo. Here at Kechara we use Pabongka Rinpoche’s Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand to study the Lamrim (https://www.vajrasecrets.com/lamrim-liberation-in-the-palm-of-your-hand). We do not public study the Lamrim Chenmo in Kechara, as it is simply to long and philisophical with very detailed points for most people.

    2. Stabilisation meditation is Single-Pointed Concentration meditation, where you build up your focus/concentration sole on one thing without distraction. Analytical meditation is when you contemplate on a topic from many different angles. They are two distinct forms of meditation but must be used together. This is explained in the Lamrim teachings. Again, using a short/simpler text will be better to understand this.

    3. Karma is not “stronger” than the Buddhas. The Buddhas cannot take us to enlightenment directly, we need to apply our own effort, but they can and do help us on the way there. Please scroll down on this page to see my reply to the question asked by Jerry.

    4. There are differences in opinion that some practitioners of all schools have of other schools. From our Gelug tradition, as long as the teachings you are practising can be traced all the way to the Buddha, without a single break, then that teaching is authentic. For example, this is one of the reasons that Lama Tsongkhapa quotes so much from the legitimate Sutras in his Lamrim Chenmo. He is showing that what he is writing about comes from the Buddha. All Lamrim teachings start with the teachings that we share in common with the Theravada tradition. Then they move on to how the Buddha also taught the Mahayana and Vajrayana. Even within the Mahayana and Vajrayana, if they cannot be traced back to the Buddha, they are not considered legitimate. Within Tibetan Buddhism, all the teachings from the Theravada, Mahayana and Vajrayana align with each other. For example, all Vajrayana teachings are based on the Mahayana, and Mahayana is actually based on the Theravada. However, due to how the path of practise is presented in Vajrayana, and the prevalence of mistaken information out there about the path of practise and the terminology used, some people do not think it is Buddhist practice. However, that is simply because they do not understand what it really is and that it is 100% Buddhist in nature. Just for your information, there is such a thing as Divine Pride in Vajrayana, but there is no such thing as divine lust. In fact, this is the first time I have ever heard of something like that.

    I hope all of this does help. Please do read Pabongka Rinpoche’s Lamrim text, it will provide you with a greater foundation to read and understand Lama Tsongkhapa’s Lamrim Chenmo if that is something you would still like to do. Thank you.

Question asked by Ama

hi pastor. I like to listen to buddha chants when I am doing household chores. but they are making me feel very anxiety and fear. I feel like I shouldn't be listening to holy chants while doing ordinary house work like hanging clothes. I feel like buddhas would punish me. how to get rid of this anxiety? pls help 😭😭

  1. Reply by pastor

    Dear Ama,

    Listening to Buddhist chants will never lead to any form of harm or punishment. The Buddhas by definition are all-compassionate and loving, they will never harm you for listening to the mantras (as long as there are no restrictions to the mantras). As long as you are listening to mantras that are common available, then there is no problem at all. Some mantras do however need initiation to recite/listen to. But in your case this shouldn’t be a problem.

    In fact, every time you listen to the mantras, it is planting seeds of enlightenment in your mind. So if you are planting the seeds of enlightenment in your mind, how can the Buddhas ever punish you. First, they will neven punish you and second, it’s actually a good thing to listen to mantras when we can. It makes our ordinary actions, daily chores, into something beneficial for our spirituality.

    I hope this helps.

Question asked by Wangmo

I dreamt of leaches bitting me, and me taking off. What does it indicate

  1. Reply by pastor

    Dear Wangmo,

    Generally, dreams are simply the subconscious working things out when you are sleeping. Psychologically, there are many aspects to dreams about leaches, depending on what they look like, where they are on the body, etc. Accordingly there are two points that stand out among the others: 1. It’s indicative that others around you are taking too much from you emotionally, if it continues, you may not be able to handle your own emotions. So it’s good to take time for yourself. Engage in prayers and meditation to strengthen your own mind. 2. It could also relate to your own individual emotions, suggesting that there are certain emotions that you have, which are too strong and consuming too much of your energy. For example, if you are overthinking about a particular situation that has a lot of emotion attached to it, if you have too much of one particular emotion. The way to reduce this is to apply the teachings to counter that particular emotion so it doesn’t become too strong.

    I hope this helps. Thank you.

Question asked by Jerry

Hello, I have a question that has bothered me for a very long time. I really need an answer to this dilemma!! Are the Buddhas beyond karma? Yes they are. Can Buddhas intervene in our karma and help us? The usual answer I get is: "No, because our karma prevents it." Then if that's the case, then that would mean that OUR karma is too strong for the Buddhas/cannot be intervened by Buddhas. Karma as a whole gets more confusing when you look deeper into the iceberg, so answering this single concern can help me a lot. Thank you

  1. Reply by pastor

    Dear Jerry,

    Yes, you are correct, the Buddhas are beyond karma.

    But can the Buddha “intervene”? That depends on how you define intervene.

    Due our karma, the Buddhas are not able to take us to the state of enlightenment from their side alone. It requires us to work on it as well.

    But they are definitely able to help us on the way there. For example, when the results of our karma has ripened and we are facing situations in life, we can do pujas which invoke upon the Buddhas to help purify that karma that is causing the situation and at the same time generate merit, which can over power the the negative effects of that negative karma so that we do not suffer. Generally, Dharma protectors can help to hold back the negative effects of karma until we have time to purify said karma through our own practices. Some Dharma protectors practices such as Dorje Shugden has the Kawang practice, which itself also helps to purifies karma causing us suffering. If these were not able to help with these things, in terms of assisting with karma, then pujas and prayers would be ineffective. But the opposite is true, they can definitely help. However, they cannot help to take us out of samsara.

    In fact, the more we purify our negative karma, the more that they can help us. That is why there is such an emphasis on purification of negative karma within practice.

    I hope that helps a little.

Question asked by Bhavisha

Hello pastor,
What we should do when Karma follows?
I am getting the type of behavior from someone which is about of like I am not good enough and valued, it's really hateful, resistance full to my being and easy going.
Which I believe I have done in the past with someone. It's really regretful. Is there anyway ?
Thank you

  1. Reply by pastor

    Dear Bhavisha,

    Karma will always follow us, it’s just if we are experiencing the results now or not. Situations in life, whether positive or negative are always caused by karma because we are in samsara. When we are going through negative experiences, we can engage in certain pujas or practices to help solve the issues created by that karma.

    One very powerful way to overcome negative situations is by doing Dharma Protector pujas or practices. If I remember correctly, you are already doing Dharma protector practice. So make more offerings on your altar and recite more mantra. Ask the particular Dharma protector to help you solve the issue. Don’t have expectations on how this issue will be solved, simply ask the protector to help with the issue. Alternatively, you can sponsor pujas to get rid of obstacles created because of our negative karma: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/four-faced-mahakala-puja

    You can also engage in purification practices, these are specific practices to purify negative karma. You can read about two practices in the links below:

    35 Confessional Budhas:
    https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-35-confessional-buddhas.html

    (If you want to practice this one, you visualise Vajrasattva without his consort. Only those with initiation should visualise him with his consort)

    Thank you and I hope this helps!

Question asked by Asi

Dear Pastors, I was listening to "Chant of Metta" by imee ooi and reciting after the metta verses in the song. I visualized hell realm deep below me and heaven realm far up above me, along with the entire universe (space-like background). And then I visualized myself radiating metta to all beings and creatures in all planes of existence, whether highest or lowest. I want to ask because it is making me a little worry. I am practicing Mahayana but I heard in Tibetan Buddhism, visualization is very very powerful. So is visualizing the hell realm somewhat dangerous and I shouldn't do that? I visualized the heaven realm and hell realm and galaxy-like environment dissolving into nothingness afterwards.

  1. Reply by pastor

    Dear Asi,

    Visualisation of the heaven or hell realms, or any of the realms for that matter is not dangerous. In fact, you need to do it in order to develop Loving-kindness and Compassion properly. However, there is more to it than just reciting mantras and visualisation. First you should know the reasons why you need to do it, then study the traditional visualisations which were taught by the Buddha and then explained by the great masters since his time. When we follow the traditional visualisations, since they carry the blessings of the Buddha, then we will actually develop the two qualities.

    All of this and more is taught in the Lamrim teachings, which form the basis of our tradition. The text we use in Kechara is called Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand. You can find it here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/lamrim-liberation-in-the-palm-of-your-hand

    Dear Jenny,

    Guan Yin, known as Chenrezig in Tibetan is a very powerful practice, as the embodiment of compassion, Chenrezig will never put you in a situation in which you will suffer more. Praying to Chenrezig will only help you. First the practice will help to create harmony between you and your parents, and secondly, internally, the practice will help to heal any emotionally issues that you may have due to the relationship with your parents.

    It is a very powerful practice to bring compassion and harmony into our lives, not pain. You can trust in the practice 100% as have many pracitioners in the past. If you don’t already have traditional Chinese prayers that you recite to Guan Yin, here is a short and powerful praise from the Tibetan tradition: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/one-minute-story/powerful-and-short-praise-to-avalokitesvara-chenrezig

Question asked by Jake

Hi pastors
I live remotely outside of Malaysia and have considered tsem Rinpoche as my guru since watching and learning from his talks for many years.

I practice the dharma and love the Mahayana path particularly , however I am concerned that since I don't live in Malaysia I will never get any Tantric Empowerment and tsem Rinpoche promoted Vajroyaghini practice alot. I heard from a different Lama that without the highest yoga tantras I will never get enlightenment or I will but it will take more and more rebirths. Is it not possible to get full Enlightenment by Tsongkpha and dorje Shugden practice? What am I supposed to do as a student of tsem Rinpoche living outside Malaysia. Thankyou

  1. Reply by pastor

    Dear Jake,

    Thanks for your message. Here are some things that you can do:

    1. If you are ready to take Tsem Rinpoche as your guru, then you can take refuge. You can contact Front Desk and they can guide you more: https://www.kechara.com/contact/ You can take refuge remotely online, but you should know a little about taking refuge which they will guide you on.

    2. Yes, it takes a longer time to reach enlightenment without Highest Yoga Tantra initiation such as Vajra Yogini. However, it is still possible, by following teachings such as the Lamrim. In fact, even before you take initiation, you have to have a firm understanding of the Lamrim and the Three Principal Aspects of the path teachings as they are the foundation of tantric practice.

    3. If you consider Tsem Rinpoche to be your guru, you can engage in the practice of his Guru Yoga, available here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/great-lamas-masters/instructions-for-tsem-rinpoches-name-mantra-retreat.html. This post is about his mantra retreat, but you can read the relevant sections regarding the Guru Yoga to know more. The Guru Yoga has a specific benefit of creating a connection with Heruka and Vajra Yogini, as explained in the article.

    4. Having strong Guru Devotion will actually create the causes to meet with other qualified lamas of the same tradition to help guide you when the guru is not physically around any long as in the case of Tsem Rinpoche. When this happens, its not to say that you switch gurus, but they will be able to guide further in your practice.

    5. Tsem Rinpoche has an article which is all about creating a connection with Vajra Yogini so that you create the strong causes to receive her practice in the future and also gives you the points to develop a strong foundational practice before recieving tantra. It’s available here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/starting-on-vajra-yogini-now.html

    I hope all of this helps. You can also contact Kechara House directly (information on the first website link) to ask more questions when you need help.

Meet the Pastors

Serving the community. Tirelessly

Combining the responsibilities of the ordained and the appearance of a layperson, pastors are the connection between the sangha and the everyday practitioner. They are ordinary people who have taken an extraordinary step in dedicating their lives towards sharing the Buddhist tradition. As laypeople holding vows, pastors will make the Dharma accessible to more people, giving them guidance and sharing knowledge. The pastors are usually present at Kechara House and available for consultation anytime. For more information, contact house@kechara.com.

Pastor Chia (sangha to be)

As a pastor, Chia will dedicate his life to befitting others through spreading the works of Tsem Rinpoche and Dharma to many people, through the use of pujas, rituals, counseling and sharing of his knowledge.

Ordained as a Pastor in 2011, Chia Song Peng has had a rich and varied Dharma career. He has held a core position with the Kechara Paradise retail outlets, served as a personal attendant to Tsem Rinpoche, embarked on various pilgrimages and received initiations into higher yoga tantric practices. He is accomplished in many pujas and has a deep understanding of the Dharma.

As a pastor, Chia has dedicated his life to befitting others through spreading the works of Tsem Rinpoche and Dharma to many people, through the use of pujas, rituals, counseling and sharing of his knowledge.

When Chia first met Tsem Rinpoche, he was asked if he wanted to become a monk, however even though this was his aspiration he informed Tsem Rinpoche that he would do so at a later date. For Chia, as he has is already in the Dharma full-time, it would be best if he became ordained. Tsem Rinpoche has reminded Chia from time to time to work towards becoming a monk and he promised that he would do so in the future.

Kechara began from nothing to become a growing Dharma organisation with major projects such as Kechara Forest Retreat, so Chia thinks that this is the perfect time to become ordained as a monk. Recently Tsem Rinpoche asked Chia again if he would like to be ordained, this time Chia said yes.

Pastor Khong Jean Ai (sangha to be)

Jean Ai wishes to become a vessel that holds the teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa to benefit future generations, inspiring others to live by the Buddha’s teachings.

Jean Ai met His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche as a young child and through her parents' involvement with Kechara over the years, she has never known a life without His Eminence. Jean Ai was a regular volunteer of Tsem Ladrang during her childhood and teenage years. After graduating with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology from the University of Warwick in the UK and working at the London Probation Service, she returned to Kuala Lumpur to join Tsem Ladrang's e-division. There she managed kechara.com, responsible for the weekly Kechara e-newsletter, including content generation and editing. Since then she has joined His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche’s writing team, responsible for executing Rinpoche’s personal instructions and managing his correspondence.

Having visited a nunnery in India in 2004, Jean Ai remembers noticing how happy and purposeful everyone was. She had a feeling of familiarity and the sight of the robes comforted her. Immediately, Jean Ai messaged her mother who told her to ask Rinpoche’s advice. Rinpoche told her to complete her secular education so that when she taught the Dharma her words would carry the credibility and weight of a university degree, something she completed with the motivation that some day she wanted to become a nun.

Through her ordination as a nun, Jean Ai wishes to become a vessel that holds the teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa to benefit future generations, inspiring others to live by the Buddha’s teachings. Through this she hopes to repay the kindness of her parents and her Guru. Above all she wants to abide in a state free of suffering, and she wants this for others as well.

Pastor Shin Tan (sangha to be)

For Shin, this is a great step forward to being fully committed to the cause of others and repaying others’ kindness through sharing the Dharma with others.

Before joining Kechara, Shin worked as a lecturer and provider of content and e-learning content solutions for various start-ups. Whilst providing training to educators teaching students in English for Specific Purposes (ESP) at various colleges, she was invited to attend a Dharma talk given by His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche at Kechara House. This event rekindled her interest in Tibetan Buddhism, as she recalled the joy of accompanying her parents to teachings as a teenager.

Joining Kechara Media & Publications in 2006 as a volunteer, Shin assumed a full time position there as a Marketing Executive, with the aim of making His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings available to more people around the world. Shin is now a member of the Tsem Ladrang Team, who takes care of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche’s secular matters, enabling Rinpoche to focus on teaching the holy Dharma.

Shin states that when she decided to join Kechara full time, she had already decided to be of some benefit to others and spend the rest of her life doing only that. Working closely with His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, seeing his tireless effort in helping others and spreading the Buddhadharma through the Gaden tradition despite tremendous challenges has made her realise that the next logical step is to become ordained as she has the opportune conditions to study with her Guru. For Shin this is also a great step forward to being fully committed to the cause of others and repaying others’ kindness through sharing the Dharma with others.

Pastor Adeline Woon (sangha to be)

Since finding her spiritual home here in Kechara, Adeline has made dharma work her life’s mission and wishes to dedicate herself fully towards the benefit of others.

Adeline stumbled across His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche's blog towards the end of 2010 and has been following his blog and Facebook page ever since. Since graduating from Dharma Drum Buddhist College Taiwan with a Masters of Arts in Religious Studies in July 2012, she returned to Malaysia and joined Kechara as a Senior Education Executive. Adeline was attracted by His Eminence’s straightforwardness and impressed at Kechara's growth under his guidance. To Adeline, His Eminence is someone who walks the talk, keeps his promises and sincerely cares for others displaying an excellent example of guru devotion, qualities that she seeks to develop herself.

Since finding her spiritual home here in Kechara, Adeline has made dharma work her life’s mission. It was in May 2013 that she officially requested His Eminence for ordination as a nun to dedicate her life fully for the dharma. According to Adeline, become ordained means that she is being true to her calling to live according to the dharma and be of benefit to others.

This however can only be achieved by meeting and studying under her root Guru. Adeline has been fortunate enough to have met with hers - His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche.

Pastor Niral Patel (sangha to be)

It is Niral’s motivation for full ordination to better himself, learn the teachings of our lineage in order to preserve them for future generations. He wishes to benefit others, just as he has benefited and is still benefiting from Tsem Rinpoche’s explanation of the Dharma.

Niral was born and raised in the UK, having graduated with a BA in Anthropology, he was working as a Financial Administrator for a Serviced Apartment & Hotel company as well as a Management Services company before stumbling across His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche’s Youtube channel, entirelyby accident. It was through His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings that he began to understand the importance of practicing the Dharma, in order to benefit himself and others around him.

Having been in contact with one of Tsem Rinpoche’s long time students in the UK, he was encouraged to visit Kechara in late 2012 for a 10 day visit. At the end of the visit Tsem Rinpoche requested Niral to come to work at Kechara, to which he agreed.

Niral moved to Malaysia in February 2013 to work as an education coordinator at Kechara House, assisting the Education Division in the creation and implementation of the new education syllabus, teaching teenagers during the Kechara Sunday Dharma School. Ever since meeting Tsem Rinpoche, he has always been encouraged by Tsem Rinpoche to do more Dharma work and strive to better himself. It is with that in mind, that Niral has requested monastic ordination.

It is Niral’s motivation for full ordination to better himself, learn the teachings of our lineage in order to preserve them for future generations. He wishes to benefit others, just as he has benefited and is still benefiting from Tsem Rinpoche’s explanation of the Dharma.

Pastor Tan Gim Lee (sangha to be)

Gim Lee’s main focus is to guide and help anyone who steps through Kechara’s doors through Dharma sharing, counselling, performing pujas and other Buddhist services. She wishes to repay Rinpoche’s kindness by spreading Lama Tsongkhapa’s holy teachings and inspiring others on the spiritual path.

She discovered Kechara by chance in 2006 and started to participate Kechara's activities almost immediately especially the retreat to collect 10 million Migtsema recitations. In April 2006, when Gim Lee met H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and first listened to his teachings, she wept uncontrollably. Though she could not understand it at the time, she had finally found her perfect teacher. She is especially touched by Tsem Rinpoche's compassionate method of teaching by setting his own examples.

Having joined as a staff of Kechara House responsible for housekeeping in 2009, Gim Lee is now one of Kechara House's Front Desk Managers predominantly based in the retreat centre in Bentong, Pahang. She also teaches the Sunday Dharma Class and moderates Dharma discussions on Tsem Rinpoche's blog chat.

The many teachings she has received from Tsem Rinpoche have changed her priorities in life. She found answers to her questions about the purpose of life, and she has realised that the way to overcome the sufferings of pain and anger is by following the path of compassion and wisdom as taught by Lord Buddha. These realisations have led to her request to be ordained as a Sangha member.

As pastor now, and later as a Buddhist nun, Gim Lee's main focus is to guide and help anyone who steps through Kechara's doors through Dharma sharing, counselling, performing pujas and other Buddhist services. She wishes to repay Rinpoche's kindness by spreading Lama Tsongkhapa's holy teachings and inspiring others on the spiritual path.

Pastor Loh Seng Piow (sangha to be)

Loh Seng Piow developed a strong wish to help Rinpoche in spreading the Dharma to the world. With that determination, Loh Seng Piow chose not to pursue his PhD degree in Cambridge University (for which he had been offered a place), resigned from his research job, and joined Tsem Rinpoche as full-time Dharma worker, and has never looked back since.

Back in 2001, Loh Seng Piow had no inkling of just how involved in Dharma he would become. As a Masters degree-holder in Engineering, Loh Seng Piow was working as a research engineer in Singapore when he met His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche. Rinpoche’s talk left a strong impression on him and after a few encounters with Rinpoche, Loh Seng Piow started developing websites for Rinpoche and Kechara.

Loh Seng Piow was trained in science, but soon realised that there were many questions that science could not answer. At the same time, he also felt that science and technology are not the solution to human problems, as humans are much better off compared to thousands years ago, yet the problems in this world are still the same, if not more, and we do not seem to be happier than our ancestors.

Loh Seng Piow soon realised that the Dharma is the ultimate solution to human problems, and that the methods used by His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche are very suitable for this modern era. Loh Seng Piow developed a strong wish to help Rinpoche in spreading the Dharma to the world. With that determination, Loh Seng Piow chose not to pursue his PhD degree in Cambridge University (for which he had been offered a place), resigned from his research job, and joined Tsem Rinpoche as full-time Dharma worker, and has never looked back since.

Meeting Rinpoche was a very refreshing experience for Loh Seng Piow, as he never knew Dharma could be so unconventional yet maintain its essence. As Rinpoche’s personal attendant, Loh Seng Piow has had many incredible moments with Rinpoche and considers himself extremely fortunate because he sees real Dharma in action, both on and off the throne. It challenges him to practice Dharma 24/7. In this way, Rinpoche has blown away his old and persistent way of thinking, which was very much focused on the outer rituals of Dharma.

Having seen that Tsem Rinpoche truly embodies what he teaches, Loh Seng Piow is convinced beyond doubt that it is possible to develop our minds to a higher state, and ultimately achieving enlightenment. All these factors have propelled Loh Seng Piow to take a step further in his Dharma career to become ordained as a pastor in order to be even more effective in sharing and disseminating the Dharma to benefit others.

Pastor Yek Yee

Naturally an introvert, Yek Yee has transformed what was once her weakness into her strength; making what was once impossible now eminently possible.

Independence was forced upon Kok Yek Yee from the tender age of nine, when she had to juggle between work and school to make ends meet. Always the introvert, Yek Yee had few friends and had difficulty expressing herself. So it was unexpected when she chose a career in journalism.

Yek Yee excelled as an award-winning reporter with Guang Ming Daily and Nanyang Siang Pau. Her articles garnered her a fanbase, and in writing, she found an outlet for the thoughts and feelings that she could not verbalise. However, despite her success, Yek Yee was not satisfied. Temporary happiness was not what she was looking for – success, money, relationships, or fame was not the key.

In her search for happiness, Yek Yee met H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, who told her “don’t retaliate with your speech, but use your power of writing to express yourself”. This led her to join Kechara Media & Publications as a writer; subsequently she was appointed Senior Editor as well as a Liaison to His Eminence.

Yek Yee now holds a core role in Kechara Care, giving advice, tours, counseling and teachings to whoever walks through their doors. Through courage and determination, she has transformed what was once her weakness into her strength; making what was once impossible now eminently possible.

As a Pastor, her patience and open-mindedness developed through her journey with Kechara will bring comfort and solace, and her new-found ability to nurture and teach others will bring hope to many.

Pastor Lanse Chiah

Having been a Pastor for a year, Lanse wishes to continue with her integral duties by renewing her vows again.

Lanse graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) from Jinan University in Guangzhou, China in 1999 and became a part-time lecturer for several years, teaching western medicine in a Traditional Chinese medical college in Kuala Lumpur.

For a long time, Lanse remained an atheist, subconsciously searching for a spiritual guru as she sought answers to questions she harboured in her mind, questions that had led her into a state of depression during her time at university. As such, she would often read philosophical books in her search for answers.

Lanse first came to know of Kechara in 2007, through her friend of over 10 years, Pastor Yek Yee. She was surprised to see a complete transformation in Pastor Yek Yee, whom she had always known as a non-spiritual person. The first book by Kechara that Lanse chanced upon was the Chinese version of Be Greedy. Naturally, Lanse was skeptical at first, thus she read the book in an attempt to find mistakes with the philosophy. However, she couldn’t find any and was left impressed by how logical the explanations in the book were.

In March 2009, Lanse joined Kechara Media & Publications (KMP) part-time to carry out Chinese translation and help with transcription. The following year, she contemplated upon whether to pursue a full-time medical or a Dharma career, finally deciding on the latter. Lanse came to realise that, although both careers share the same motivation of easing people’s sufferings, she felt that her work in Dharma could lead to a greater contribution for the sake of all sentient beings in a deeper, spiritual sense.

Having been a Pastor for a year, Lanse wishes to continue with her integral duties by renewing her vows again.

Pastor Han Nee

It was not until she witnessed how Rinpoche brought peace and comfort to her dying mother, that she realised she also wanted to touch others with the Dharma.

Lim Han Nee, a mother of two, is a retired secondary school principal. She retired in December 2000 after a 30-year career in education. She obtained her Master’s Degree in Education at Leicester University in the UK, at the end of 2001.

After gaining her master’s degree, Han Nee considered further options of embarking on a doctorate in education or spending her years in retirement, travelling and visiting family. At the same time, she was also in search of her spiritual path. She had begun exploring Theravadan and Chinese Mahayana Buddhism for answers to questions she had.

In December 2004, Han Nee attended a teaching retreat on the topic of the Lamrim and White Tara held by His Eminence Gelek Rinpoche. As the retreat proceeded, she found her questions were being answered. Then in June 2005, Han Nee was introduced to Kechara by her sister, where she met her spiritual guide, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, who has recently told her that she must go all the way in the Dharma for the benefit of others.

Han Nee had been a school guidance counsellor for nearly twenty years. However, it was not until she witnessed how Rinpoche brought peace and comfort to her dying mother, that she realised she also wanted to touch others with the Dharma.

A member of Kechara’s Puja Team, who conduct sponsored pujas in Shabten Khang, Han Nee is also a member of the Education Division with the portfolio of Content Development. Apart from this, Han Nee is also a member of the weekly Kechara Chat Time team.

Pastor David Lai

In 2014, with a sincere wish to benefit others, David decided to be ordained as a Buddhist pastor to continue serving the spiritual needs of the organisation.

David Lai has been a student of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche for over a decade now and was one of the founding members of Kechara. He joined Kechara as a full time staff in 2005 and has been working in various departments beginning with the Kechara Paradise outlets.

Right from the beginning, David had been advised by His Eminence to go into writing. Overcoming various hurdles, David finally began his literary career with the publication of his first book and autobiography, There’s No Way But Up in 2009. The book charts his spiritual journey from his childhood and culminates in the meeting with His Eminence.

The positive feedback from this book led him to write various other publications like Vajrayogini and Other Power Places in Nepal – a pilgrim’s guide of Nepal, Tales My Lama Told Me – a book on short stories and Conversations in Love – a book on relationships. These books continue to inspire and bring people onto the Dharma.

Besides writing, David has found his passion in sharing the Dharma since his earlier days working in the Kechara Paradise outlets. Over the years, David has received innumerable teachings from His Eminence, ranging from public teachings to personal instructions and advice. He is known to passionately share these teachings whenever he can and to whomever he meets. In 2014, with a sincere wish to benefit others, David decided to be ordained as a Buddhist pastor to continue serving the spiritual needs of the organisation.

Pastor Henry Ooi

After following Rinpoche as a Dharma student for all these years, learning and practicing the Dharma, Henry knows the importance of the pastors’ role in Kechara founded by Rinpoche. He wants to become a pastor to serve Rinpoche, to serve Kechara, and to serve the public.

Born in 1952 in Penang, Henry moved to Kuala Lumpur in search of work after he finished his Form Five studies in 1969. He worked at different types of jobs and it was when he was jobless in 1997/8 that he met His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche at the house of his cousin, Ruby (now Dato’ Ruby Khong), when Rinpoche was giving a dharma teaching. At that teaching Henry was awed by how Rinpoche taught Dharma with simple yet profound explanations.

With the kind guidance, teachings and Dharma practices by Rinpoche including instruction to engage in their first spiritual retreat, Henry and his wife Angel started a small business that soon became profitable. A few years later after Kechara House Buddhist Association was founded, Rinpoche started to enrol students as liaisons and that was when Henry and Dato’ Ruby offered themselves. Later more students were elected as liaisons that saw the birth of Liaisons Council. The Liaisons Council is now known as the Board of Directors of which Henry is one of its members.

Currently Henry is the Project Director, overseeing the construction and completion of projects in the Kechara Forest Retreat. Prior to this appointment he was the Head of Department in Kechara Paradise retail outlets of which he served for about ten years. He still remains as its company director as well as director for most of the companies within Kechara. He served one term as vice president of Kechara House Buddhist Association from 2012 to 2103.

After following Rinpoche as a Dharma student for all these years, learning and practicing the Dharma, Henry knows the importance of the pastors’ role in Kechara founded by Rinpoche. He wants to become a pastor to serve Rinpoche, to serve Kechara, and to serve the public. As he aspires to be a monk as he grows older, being a pastor of Kechara will pave the way for his aspiration. Henry believes that as one gets older in life, one should have already prepared for the imminent, death. And what a beautiful death it will be, to die in Kechara Forest Retreat in a monk’s robes. This is the kind of death that Henry wants. But before the imminent death happens, Henry wants to continue working in Kechara Forest Retreat, serving the community and whoever comes into it in whatever way he can. And when he is not physically anymore to serve others, he will request instructions from Rinpoche to enter into retreats in Kechara Forest Retreat.

Pastor Patsy Gooi

All that Patsy wants now is to spend the rest of her life doing dharma work, dharma practices and being of benefit to others.

Formerly a full time housewife with plenty of free time, Patsy had the great fortune to visit Gaden Monastery and meet H.E. Tsem Rinpoche almost twenty years ago. That one week stay in the monastery changed her view of life. Prior to that, she had no spiritual inclinations but meeting Rinpoche stirred something inside her, and she realised that there was more to life than just eating, sleeping, shopping and having fun. Rinpoche’s approach to dharma was logical and practical but most importantly, he stressed that we should always focus out and work towards benefitting others. Rinpoche made dharma easy to understand and his advice was and still is, to “change inwardly, not outwardly.”

In 2009, after years of practicing and applying what she had learned from Rinpoche’s teachings, Patsy decided to set up a Kechara retail outlet in Penang to share the dharma with others. She knew that Rinpoche’s teachings were very applicable to the people of our time and that his activities would benefit others just as they had benefited her. She also wanted to repay the kindness of her Guru who had constantly helped and guided her. Today, Kechara Paradise Penang is not just a dharma shop but also organises puja sessions, animal liberation and dharma talks.

In 2010, again with Rinpoche’s blessings, Patsy set up the Kechara Soup Kitchen Activity Center in Penang. Saddened to see the plight of the homeless and urban poor on the streets, Patsy decided to practice “compassion through action” as taught by Rinpoche in the most active way she knows. Today, together with her team of volunteers, Patsy feeds the homeless and urban poor four times a week and provides basic food provisions to many hardcore poor families on a monthly basis.

All that Patsy wants now is to spend the rest of her life doing dharma work and dharma practices, and that she may be of benefit to others.

Pastor Albert Ratchaga

In 2008, Albert Ratchaga began working as a part timer in Kechara Paradise, but as he learned more about the works of Rinpoche and Kechara, Rinpoche’s kindness and compassion touched him deeply. He realised that his work gave his life more meaning and decided to join Kechara full time.

Through his work as a sales executive, Albert was able learn more Dharma from Rinpoche's teachings and use this wisdom to assist those who entered his store to overcome their problems, thus improving their lives.

Albert soon developed a deep wish to follow in Rinpoche’s footsteps and in 2016 was ordained as a Pastor to continue benefitting and serving others.

    Lama Tsongkhapa was an influential Tibetan Buddhist monk, philosopher and tantric yogi, whose activities led to the formation of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism . Lama Tsongkhapa was hailed as the second Buddha by contemporary Buddhist masters of his time. Famous for reviving Buddhism in Tibet and revered for elevating the Dharma to all its present glory. Hence having a 12 ft Lama Tsongkhapa Statue at new Kechara Gompa (Prayer Hall) is indeed a blessing. Its truly beautiful. Merely by looking at it is a blessing .
    Thank you Rinpoche and team effort making it possible.

    The Pemayangtse Monastery is a Buddhist monastery, near Pelling in the northeastern Sikkim. The monastery is about 375 year old and is one of the oldest and premier monasteries of Sikkim. Its also the most famous monastery in Sikkim and one of the most important monastery belonging to the Nyingma order of Tibetan Buddhism. Pemayangtse monastery was founded around 1647-48 recording to history. Well the Monastery is part of Buddhist religious pilgrimage circuit built with scenic backdrop of snow-capped mountains on two sides. Where many locals and tourists will travel to Sikkim yearly . Over the centuries, the monastery has withstood earthquakes and has gone through series of refurbishments and preservation efforts. Interesting story behind this monastery, would love to travel to Sikkim again .
    Lieutenant Colonel Laurence Austine Waddell was a British explorer, collector in Tibet, and author, travelling throughout India,Sikkim and areas on the borders of Nepal and Tibet. He wrote about the Tibetan Buddhist religious practices from what he observed while there. In Sikkim he made a stunning discovery, that Dorje Shugden existence in the Nyingma monastery as written in his book. Hence it has proven that Dorje Shugden been worshipped not only in Gelug lineage but as well in the Nyingma centuries ago too. Its not a minority practice afterall .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Seow Choong Liang for this interesting sharing.

    Revisit this interesting post of a great Master
    Buton Rinchen Drup, was a 14th-century Sakya master and Tibetan Buddhist leader. He is widely considered to be one of Tibet’s greatest scholars, historians, translators, and writers. He has been the role model for many of Tibet’s greatest masters over the centuries, including the present Dalai Lama. His legacy also included the compilation of 500 years’ worth of translated teachings into the encyclopedic Kangyur and Tangyur collections. This monumental effort helped to preserve and propagate the teachings throughout Tibet. These collections have become well known by all of the schools of Buddhism in Tibet, and continue to this day. He truly was one of the brightest lights of Tibetan Buddhism.
    Throughout his life, Buton Rinchen Drup has continued to serve humanity and the Dharma. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    The Fourth Takpu, Pema Vajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub was a highly attained lama. He was also commonly known as Takpu Dorje Chang who had many authentic visions of the Buddhas. He had even received directly teachings from Buddhas. He had received direct visions of Tara herself. Tagpu Pemavajra had travelled to Tushita, the heavenly abode of Lama Tsongkhapa as requested by Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche where he received the complete cycle of teachings on Dorje Shugden. Tagpu Pemavajra was one such lama who was attained enough to receive these teachings for the benefit of others. He was instrumental in the development of the Dorje Shugden practice within the Gelug tradition. Wow he was able to astral travel to various pure lands and receive special teachings. Interesting biography of a great lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Amazing discovery a 2,000 year old Indian Buddhist document as it tell us how Buddhism took root in India. It’s the oldest Buddhist manuscripts yet discovered, dating from about the 1st century BCE to 3rd century CE. Found in the north-western outskirts of the Indian subcontinent an ancient Buddhist kindgom. The document, written on a birch bark scroll offers rare insight into the early history of Buddhism. Surviving manuscripts are rare only a few hundred are known to still exist. Understanding the history of the region helps us realize the significance of this scroll.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Visited this stunning standing Manjushri which is located at the Manjushree Park at Chobhar, in Kathmandu, Nepal recently. Feeling so blessed able to see it , with my friends. Manjushree Park, one of most natural, historic attactive park within Kathmandu valley. Fantastic well managed picnic spot one should visit and not to be missed when one is at Kathmandu Nepal. Visible 33 ft. high black stone carved Manjushree statue .Manjushri is one of the most important iconic figures in Mahayana Buddhism. The powerful image representing ever-present wisdom plus the sword of awareness to cut off all delusion. An interesting story behind this Kathmandu Valley where mythology and geology intertwine.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing .

    According to Buddhist teaching, prostration manifests the spiritual growth, faith of a person. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, prostration is an important element of practice. Traditionally, prostrations are more than a show of respect for Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. Making prostration is a basic part of our lives in Buddhism. They are a method to purify our mind, or the antidote for ego-clinging. One of the general benefits of prostration is that in the future we will achieve a good rebirth . Prostration is a very powerful activity that can clear away obscuration of our body, speech, and mind as well as clearing our past and present negative karma. A huge merits for anyone doing prostration with proper visualization as well as the proper motivation.
    Having seen practitioners doing prostration along the road at Lhasa and reading teachings on prostration on blogs had motivated me to do retreat on it. Its was during the MCO back in 2020, I did a prostration retreat then. Even though it took me a longer time somehow I have completed 100,150k prostrations . Now I am still continue to do but not as many prostration as before.
    Well even though this is an old post I would to congratulate those involved in the prostration retreat at that time. It’s a good that Kechara is have a teachings on prostration and retreat .
    Thank you 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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    6 years ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

One the day of Losar (new lunar year), it is always beneficial for Buddhist practitioners to get together in making abundant offerings to Buddhas on the altar to usher in goodness, prosperity and well-being of our loved ones.

Umze for the day was Siew Hong. She's just been with us for slightly more than a year now but she's proven her capability in leading the puja. Our Penang group members are so proud of her and her commitment in attending the weekly puja. Despite being eloquence and smart, she has beautiful chant as well. When she leads, make sure you are there to hear her chant for yourself! Kechara Penang Study Group by Jacinta.

Dharma sharing by Hue before we proceeded with DS puja & Rinpoche Swift Return puja. Hue is one of the long time Kechara Penang members and he comes to puja regularly. He shared that he truly believes that Dorje Shugden and Rinpoche always there guiding him. He shared how sometimes DS will give him hints to avert troubles ahead or to alert him when he 'misbehaved'. Hope many will come to know more about this powerful Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden aka DS. Having Dorje Shugden is like having a powerful ally that will protect us day and night. Just trust Him and have faith. Kechara Penang Study Group, 25/11/2023 by Jacinta.
