63 Tara statues offered by Datuk May

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Datuk May, the president of Kechara House invited 63 Taras. One Tara was dedicated for one year in her life. Each Tara will be slowly given away to people to bless their homes and be a jewel in their shrines.

Doing such practices purifies body karma that can hamper you from doing dharma work. Collects great amount of merit to attain the Enlightened qualities of Mother Tara. Also it creates a great affinity to Tara to assist you to accomplish your dharma practice and your goals.

One of the preliminary practices before Tantric practice is to engage in the retreats of creating 100,000 Tsatsa images of your yidam. This is similar to that practice.

We should do our best to create images of Buddhas for our shrines and to gift them to people as much as possible throughout our lives. There’s no limit to this practice until we become a Buddha.

When the King of Sri Lanka invited the Buddha Shakyamuni to visit and give dharma to his kingdom, the Buddha did not make it. Instead, Buddha Shakyamuni sent a line drawing of his own form as a gift to the King.

To see the blessed form of the Buddha is tremendous blessings. Buddha said after he passes, worshiping a image of the Buddha collects the same merits as worshiping the Buddha in the flesh. Hence the tradition of Buddha images arose from Lord Buddha Shakyamuni Himself.

We do not worship the statue or painting as that is just metal or canvas, but the symbol it represents. Buddhists do not worship statues. The statues symbolize the essence of the Buddha and our own potential within us. The images hold a powerful symbolism to the qualities of a Buddha we wish to achieve. It us a blessed reminder to the sacred form of the Tathagata Buddha.

  4. Chris Chong on Mar 4, 2016 at 12:38 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this news to inspire us. Rinpoche always remind us to practice generosity. It is one of the six paramitas that we need to develop. Through giving we can generate compassion and reduce our attachment to our material wealth. Datuk May’s generous act is truly inspiring for us.

    Humbly,
    Chris

    Wow! Never see so many Tara before. They look so grand and stunning. Datuk May is one of the most generous people in Kechara. Although she is 64 this year but her energy and passion to spread Rinpoche’s teaching still going strong and over flow. Datuk May has two daughters, Li Kim who in charge of Kechara Media & Publications and Li Kheng who in charge of Ladrang (Rinpoche’s head office & residence) now. Hence Datuk May must leave long and healthy to help Rinpoche to spread Lama Tsongkapa teachings to the world. What a meritorious spiritual journey! I rejoice!

  6. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jul 15, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    It is really amazing to me that Datuk May has this great merit to have so many statues of Lord Tara in her own house. Cannot really imagine the amount of great merits that Datuk May will continue to accumulate through owing and giving these statues of Lord Tara away.

    Datuk May has certainly contributed a lot towards the growth of Kechara and the spreading of Dharma.

    Whoever will become the lucky recipients of these Lord Tara, I wish very much that they can open their hearts to learn and practice dharma throughout their lives.

  7. anonymous on Oct 14, 2010 at 2:21 am

    I really love this teaching of the King and Buddha’s line drawing, this also remind me of King Udrayana and the Wheel of Life.

    I really love the kind heart of Ms. Datuk May in all her actions to bring happiness to many people. May you have a stable and healthy life.

    I pray one day, I can make many offering of Buddha statues to Rinpoche, to benefit many others.

    May anyone who read this post, start to practise giving of Buddha statue, tsatsa, pandent, pictures to many other people who need them.

    I love this post. I really love this post. thank you.

    This is the good virtual action Datuk May able to donated 63 statues mother tara statues purchase from the outlets to give away to others for her preliminary practices to purify body karma.
    No doubt Datuk May did her best to practice dharma in her age, dedicate her time and devote to Tsem Rinpoche the rest of her life. Datuk May also brought in her beloved 2 daughter li kim and li kheng to promote our lama and protector practice to the China.
    Under mother tara blessing, Datuk May will have the good health and swift power to assist rinpoche build KWPC and Menara Kechara at the future.

  9. Justin Ripley on Jul 10, 2010 at 2:59 am

    Datuk May is very fiercely motivated, grounded, passionate, focused, but she is also; kind, caring, compassionate, loving. She has been living Dharma but just didn’t know it. I love that she has found Rinpoche and feels the connection. She is true devotion, and she just wants to do more and more to make kwpc a realilty.
    I love being around Datuk, she just rubs off on you, she is totally real. She voluntarily aligns herself towards the vision of Rinpoche to be of benefit to Malaysians and the world. When you work with her you can feel her energy, even if she’s tired she still has that slow burn which can be ignited into an inferno.
    May these Tara statues give her the support to continue her Dharma work now and into the future, may Tara rain her blessing down on her.

  10. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 9, 2010 at 11:54 pm

    Tara is probably the second most famous deity in Tibet behind Chenrezig. Tara practice can help us remove a lot of obstacles related to dharma work. She emanates in 21 forms, I know of a couple in Kechara who own all the 21 forms of Tara. May Datuk May purify many of her body karma and be healthy and fit for the work that she must undertake to build KWPC. Tara is also known as wish fulfilling and grants a wish especially the Green Tara form. Tibetan pray to her for removal of obstacles, to get spouse and even a child. Tara has vowed that she will emanate in female form to liberate sentient beings, as not many Buddhas emanate in a female form to liberate beings.
    When we work at Kechara Saraswati Arts(KSA), we get to clean, paint and adorn the Buddha statues, it is work that can also help us purify the negativity of our bodies. If one is concerned about body karma collected in this life or previous existences then it is good for us to volunteer at KSA.

    Tara is THE mother of all Buddha. How auspicious is it for Datuk May and her family for offering such GREAT BUDDHA to Rinpoche. I sincerely wish from the very BOTTOM OF MY HEART . I wish long life and good health to DATUK MAY. She is a very experienced and successful business woman yet she is so humble and caring that i felt so humble and happy to get to know Datuk May. ‘
    I had the opportunity to carry the 63 Tara together with a few volunteers when it arrive in Ladrang to be offer to Rinpoche , ALL the Tara is really beautiful , really peaceful and serene looking. I am sure MOTHER TARA has blessed on DATUK MAY. I am confident.
    May i use this blog to express my fullest gratitude to DATUK and LI KIM for their what they had given to me and my family. I will remember and be thankful to them for a very very very long time.
    With alot of love to DATUK MAY AND FAMILY.

    I accompanied Datuk May on her ‘shopping’ trip to invite these beautiful Tara statues from our Kechara Paradise outlets. She was so easy, no fuss, what her beagle eyes saw she wanted. No asking of price or discount! And all in a day!
    Tip: when we invite statues be it for our own or to give away as a puja, never ask for discount. This applies to dharma books, stupas or any representation of the Buddha’s body, speech and mind. Or it is like we want to collect merit but at a ‘discount.’
    May Datuk May live long and continue to serve and practice the dharma in this life and all future lives.

  13. Joey on Jul 8, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    That is a very good idea indeed, to sponsor statues for others during a birthday so that the merits from that would be continuous as whenever someone prays to the statue, the sponsor gets merits. And like what Rinpoche has mentioned in the Vajrayogini talk, “why not do something meaningful about your birth by offering statues!” Datuk May Png actualized the teaching! I really admire May Png’s Guru Devotion. She actually does it immediately without hesitating.
    Perhaps i should start sponsoring statues starting with this birthday. After all, my life does need meaning and this is a way to give it some.

  14. Likheng on Jul 7, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    The generous and holy offering of Datuk May has 3 fold benefits: i) benefit to Datuk with the purification of her body karma, ii) benefit to the fortunate individuals/families who will receive the Tara images and iii) benefit to the Kechara Team in their progress as a platform for Dharma to spread in all ten directions.
    This offering is another example of how, in giving to others, one can receive so much in return. Tsem Rinpoche reinforces this through his teaching on Dalai Lama’s birthday (6 July 2010, which will be uploaded in this blog) that one will become truly happy when one develops the habit of being selfless.
    I cannot stop being awed by the skillful means in which Rinpoche helps his student overcome various obstacles while, simultaneously, turn the wheel of Dharma and plant the seeds of Dharma through gifts.

  15. Peter on Jul 6, 2010 at 8:25 pm

    Terima Kasih Rinpoche!
    Sadhu!Sadhu!Sadhu!
    Datuk May is indeed the fearless and passionate crusader for Rinpoche and Kechara and I see in her the role model for the next generation of successive leaders to be groomed and continue the collective vision and mission for the years to come.
    An epitome of ‘When the going gets tough, the tough gets going’, she has my respect for the ‘no nonsense’ leadership yet with a heart of Dharma.
    Another wonderful example of how real the Dharma can be…
    May Tara in all of Her Wisdom and Compassion continue to manifest through Datuk May!

  16. Yokefui on Jul 6, 2010 at 2:14 pm

    Datuk May is the President of KH (http://www.kechara.com/kechara-house/about-us/our-team/). She joined us to do dharma work after she returned from the Nepal pilgrimage in 2008.
    To new people , Datuk May may appear loud and uncompromising. However, when you get to know her longer, you’ll discover a soft heart underneath all the reinforced concrete.
    Being an experienced and successful business woman , Datuk had done her “checking” before she took refuge from Rinpoche. After which, she practiced guru devotion sincerely.
    May you have good health and long life to blast us with your dragon roar, may your spiritual journey be smooth and swift.
    Love, yf

    Mother Tara is a Bodhisattva of compassion who manifests in female form. In Tibetan, Tara is known as “Dölma” (Sgrol-ma), or “She Who Saves.” In particular she represents compassion in action, since she’s in the process of stepping from her lotus throne in order to help sentient beings.. Her mantra is ‘Om Tare Tuttare Ture Svaha’
    From my experience, in Kechara Paradise outlets Green tara is one of the most popular buddha statues that people have invited home in different size. Many of lady just like her even in their first time of seeing her. How wonderful that these 63 tara statue will b abided in different houses in Malaysia.

    The green, swift and compassionate female Buddha Tara is the manifestation of enlightend activities of all Buddhas of the past, present and future of the ten directions. Her virtues are beyond compare when we are in need to accomplish important wishes in life. So much more when we’re in the Dharma. The Goddess tara will expedite all our Dharma aspirations to see its fruition.
    In Tibet, China, Mongolia and other Buddhist countries, the Goddess Tara have benefitted many of the womensfolk by giving status of equality to the male dominant society. This is the spirit of equality of Buddhism as we see everyone as equal.
    I rejoice in Datuk May’s generous offering of these 63 Tara statues to the Dharma. May She gain a long, healthy and stable life in order to fulfil her Dharmic needs to benefit many people in the future.

  19. Wendy on Jul 4, 2010 at 4:53 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful news with us. I rejoice in Datuk May’s offering of 63 Tara Statues. By this offering, may she have good health and long life and may her Dharma work grow to benefit many people. It’s great to know that there is always a method to purify different types of karma, in this case making or offering enlightened images to purify one’s body karma. We know that we have created negative body karma when we experience sickness and poor health which are obstacles to our Dharma practice. Knowing that there is a method to overcome this obstacles gives us hope and increase our conviction in the law of cause and effect that positive actions bring positive results.

  20. ngeowchin on Jul 4, 2010 at 3:18 pm

    I rejoice in Datuk’s virtuous offering of the 63 Taras which will go to the homes and shrines of many who will receive protection and blessings from Tara. This is one wonderful way to help bring people into Dharma through one’s generosity.It is said that giving protection to people is the cause for one to live long and have a healthy, violent free life in future rebirths.
    Tara is a swift protector by virtue of her close connection to worldly beings when she manifested from a lotus which springs forth when a tear drop fell to earth from Avalokiteswara’s eye.
    In this degenerate times, we all need to rely on Mother Tara’s great compassion to remove obstacles to our spiritual development.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching of how to nurture the dharma in our children . Its good everything to start early and young whatever as such like Dharma teaching to our children. Stimulate them with dharma comic books and so forth. As parents show them an example of what we learn, practice in the center. Opening the dharma imprint in them will be good. Beautiful sharing , wish Jake well and on the right spiritual path.

    Dogs are better than human beings because they know , can feel but do not speak only. Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen. Watching the video tell all, that dog so royal all I can tell. He is at risk though yet he try to his best to protect the other. A selflessness act he care about others more than themselves. Dogs are most faithful and royal than human. A person can leave us when time is bad but a dog will show us their royalty in our bad time.

    Nowadays, people prefers to live in forest, and near the greens as they do not want to have the hustle city life which they grew up in because it is very stressful and very unhealthy for their body and mind. I’m amazed with the idea of forest house, incrediably built in the deep forest, with amazing architecture and innovatively studied landscape. I can feel the peace of mind by just looking at the picture. With the huge amount of trees, bushes and plants, it makes the environment looks calm, cooling and less polluted.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article, this house is extremely unique indeed a beautiful place to stay. It is best to be recommended for people who likes to spend short holiday and for those to love to have a peaeceful meditation.

    Ribur Rinpoche great yogi, scholar and teacher, an accomplished practitioner, as well as a writer and who had giving teachings in numerous countries around the world. We are fortunate able to read all the amazing memoir of Ribur Rinpoche’s profound meeting with Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. A rare and precious memoir. Woa amazing , during the Chinese invasion Ribur Rinpoche managed to retrieve some of Rinpoche’s relics and is at Sera Mae Monastery .
    Loved what Ribur Rinpoche said …….as a scholar, and as a lama I am somebody, but these things are not important. The only thing that matters to me is that I was a disciple of Pabongka Rinpoche.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche was one of the most outstanding Tibetan masters of our time. Also known as Milerpa. We are fortunate we are to learn about Manjushri’s sacred prayer. May all be blessed with this powerful praise of Manjushri.

He is one of the best known and most respected Zen masters in the world today. He has been travelling internationally to give retreats and teachings.

    Most Chinese people believe in Buddhism. So there are countless religious sites in this vast land. China has such an incredibly long history that it makes sense that there would be a lot of places of interest where holy relics were kept. It would be wonderful to go spiritually enriching, going on pilgrimage to all these Holy scared places as mentioned. Interesting to read with lots of information making the trip much easier . Its amazing there are so many temples where holy Buddha relics been kept. Looking at it merely tells us all and is a blessing connected with the spiritual qualities of the Buddha. Interesting read and beautiful pictures shared.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Stella for this wonderful sharing.

    Kechara Oasis serves good and healthy foods for most its vegetarian. Kechara Oasis founded by our Lama Tsem Rinpoche caters to fine, high quality, delicious food leaves a deep impression on our nature. Looking at those pictures tells us more. Well decorated those foods shown. We can live and be healthy without killing animals for food. Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life. As our Lama had always encouraged us to on vegetarian to save animals .
    Choosing to go on vegetarian is the best choice. One of these day I will go KO to try those delicious dishes.

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.
    3 yearss 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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
