The Kechara Buddhist Organisation’s Puja (prayers and rituals) House was established to perform a wide range of authentic prayers and rituals for the sick, dying, deceased and those who are going through tremendous obstacles; or even simply wishing to invoke the powers of the Buddhas for their wellbeing or success. Amongst the many pujas that are available at our Puja House, the Dorje Shugden and Medicine Buddha pujas are the most popular due to their effectiveness in removing obstacles, healing the sick, assisting the dying or the deceased and also in accumulating spiritual merit. In addition to prayer services, Kechara’s Puja House also accepts requests to make a range of offerings to the Buddhas on behalf of members and practitioners.

In recent years, offerings of candles and incense to Dorje Shugden have become extremely popular. Due to the karmic affinity between Dorje Shugden and the people of our time, this enlightened Dharma Protector has proven to be exceptionally swift in responding to prayers and bestowing blessings and protection. As such, making offerings to Dorje Shugden is now recognised as one of the most efficacious ways to accumulate merits in order to fulfil both our spiritual and mundane aims.

To accommodate the growing requests to make offerings to Dorje Shugden, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche saw there was a need for a much larger outdoor space where people would be able to make offerings in a safe, sanctified environment. Thus, the project to develop an outdoor Dorje Shugden chapel was launched.

Work began a few months ago to create this outdoor chapel, located behind the sacred Vajra Yogini Stupa and next to Wisdom Hall where Rinpoche has enthroned the world’s largest Dorje Shugden statue. Supervised by dedicated Kecharians, a grand altar for Dorje Shugden was constructed along with a candle-offering grotto. In addition, two stone incense burners were built to accommodate both traditional Tibetan incense (sang) offerings as well as joss sticks, familiar amongst Chinese and South East Asian worshippers.

There is also space for devotees and visitors to make offerings of Dorje Shugden mantra stones, similar to the way mani stones are offered at sacred power places in Tibet, Nepal and throughout the Himalayas. Mantras represent the energy of the enlightened beings in the form of sound and when we recite mantras, they stimulate the various parts of our body to heal itself, to clear itself, to purify itself and to gain higher states of consciousness. Mantras therefore, are very powerful and they can be written, visualised or recited out aloud, to bless ordinary beings, animals, ethereal or formless beings and everyone in the environment.

With Dorje Shugden mantra stones offered through this outdoor chapel, it means that when we circumambulate the chapel, we are not only circumambulating the Dorje Shugden statue but also his sacred mantra OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA. In doing so, we plant the seeds of enlightenment in our mindstreams so that in the future, we are able to accomplish bodhicitta (ultimate compassion), the realisation of emptiness and attain higher states of consciousness.

On January 18, 2019, the Dorje Shugden statue arrived, greeted by Kecharians and visitors eager to witness the historic occasion. The next two days saw volunteers and members from all over Malaysia coming together to prepare the statue to be invited to its final location on the pedestal. With their help, thousands of holy relics and precious items, as well as trillions of Buddha images, mantras, prayers and texts were inserted into the statue, which was then sealed in the traditional manner. Many of these items were personally selected by Rinpoche, whose wish it is that this outdoor chapel be of as much benefit to others as possible. In preparation for the chapel’s opening, Rinpoche had even given teachings about the benefits of the chapel so the devotees will be educated on exactly how this Dorje Shugden chapel will assist them.

On the afternoon of January 20, under sunny and clear blue skies, a crane lifted Kechara’s magnificent 9-foot bronze Dorje Shugden statue as Kecharians and visitors escorted him over to the pedestal while reciting OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA. Dorje Shugden was thusly ‘enthroned’ on a dedicated 4-foot stone pedestal and in the following week, monks from Phelgyeling Monastery in Nepal performed the soongdroop, rabney and trusol pujas to consecrate the outdoor chapel and statue.

Nestled amongst maturing Bucida trees, this new outdoor Dorje Shugden shrine is much needed due to the tremendous growth of Dorje Shugden practice throughout Malaysia and Southeast Asia as many come to realise the potency of his practice and the reliability of this enlightened Dharma Protector.

The location of this new outdoor Dorje Shugden chapel is strategic and the alignment of the main altar in Wisdom Hall, the new Dorje Shugden outdoor shrine and the Vajra Yogini Stupa transforms the area between Wisdom Hall and the Vajra Yogini Stupa into a power-packed sanctuary on what is already highly sacred land. Very quickly this Dorje Shugden sanctum has become one of Kechara Forest Retreat’s most popular sites for visitors and residents alike, to sit on a number of stone benches to pray, meditate, or simply relax in a place of power. The chapel is open to all so do come and connect with power and blessings of the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.

Dorje Shugden’s name in Tibetan literally means ‘One Endowed with Indestructible Power’. He is the emanation of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom and is therefore a fully enlightened being that one can have full confidence in.

Dorje Shugden’s lineage can be traced to one of the oldest and highest incarnation lines from India and Tibet. His incarnation lineage consists of a succession of highly attained lamas, pandit-scholars, yogis and Dharma kings, going all the way back to Buddha Shakyamuni’s lifetime when Dorje Shugden incarnated as Magadha Sangmo, the daughter of Buddha’s patron. Dorje Shugden’s other past incarnations include:

  • Mahasiddha Virupa who was a master of miracles;
  • Thonmi Sambhota who was the father of the Tibetan script;
  • Tibetan Buddhist King Trisong Detsen, whose patronage of the lamas and monasteries was instrumental in the spread of Buddhism in Tibet;
  • Mahasiddha Naropa who beheld the face of Buddha Vajra Yogini;
  • The supreme translator Ra Lotsawa who introduced the Yamantaka Tantras to Tibet;
  • Dulzin Drakpa Gyaltsen who was the direct disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa;
  • Panchen Sonam Drakpa who was a prolific scholar;
  • And just before arising as a Dharma Protector, he was the illustrious Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, the great scholar and yogi who sacrificed his life in order to arise as Dorje Shugden.

Dorje Shugden is propitiated as a Dharma Protector, whose blessings and assistance helps to remove obstacles, problems and difficulties that can potentially hinder or derail our spiritual practice and the course of our lives. As a Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden is also supplicated to provide supportive circumstances that lead to improvement in our lives. In addition, he is entreated to provide resources favourable to the growth of our spiritual practice. Ultimately, it is our Dharma practice that Dorje Shugden protects and nourishes and that is why he is called a Dharma Protector.

 

Benefits of Dorje Shugden’s Practice

According to his praise, Dorje Shugden is said to possess the strength of a thousand Dharma Protectors. This is attributed to the fact that he is an emanation of an enlightened being and that he manifested in a worldly form (of a god or deva) that has a closer karmic affinity with us. Hence, he has great strength in holding back our obstacles or our negative karma from manifesting so that we are able to purify it more easily. Consequently, Dorje Shugden has a reputation for quick assistance for those who are in dire circumstances.

Dorje Shugden is, in nature, the Buddha of Wisdom Manjushri. Click on image to enlarge.

In addition, as an emanation of Manjushri, Dorje Shugden has the ability to open our minds to universal wisdom, so that we can develop a greater clarity of mind and penetrative insight especially when it comes to applying spiritual teachings into our daily lives. Such realisations change our perspective and allow us to make swifter decisions that positively impact others and ourselves.

According to his fulfilment ritual text, Dorje Shugden holds a jewel-spitting mongoose and a vajra hook in the crook of his arm signifying that he bestows spiritual and material wealth and resources. In general, Dorje Shugden helps us to acquire the resources we need so we are free to reach our full spiritual potential. The resources that Dorje Shugden bestows includes material wealth, prosperity, a good career, harmony amongst family, friends and colleagues, as well as health and various opportunities that improve our lives.

Most important of all, Dorje Shugden has tremendous power to help us and our loved ones when we take our final journey. He is a powerful ally that we can rely on when we are dying as this is the most crucial moment when everything we have done in this life catches up and creates the circumstances for our future lives. Once the deceased has taken rebirth, nothing can be done to reverse the circumstance of taking a negative rebirth. If we have been practising Dorje Shugden sincerely, he will be able to intercede and come to our aid. That is why many sincere practitioners offer candles, recite lots of Dorje Shugden mantras and perform Dorje Shugden pujas during this crucial moment in order to solicit Dorje Shugden’s powerful assistance.

Once we have developed a spiritual relationship with this Protector, he will benefit us far into the future, a result of his omniscience as an enlightened Buddha combined with our sincere reliance on him.

Height: 9 feet (2.7 metres)
Material: Bronze

The 9-foot Dorje Shugden statue installed at the outdoor chapel in Kechara Forest Retreat is not just a statue, but is one filled with countless holy items and has been highly charged through traditional consecration prayers.

Making offerings and prayers to this statue, or circumambulating it therefore generates a lot of spiritual merit and purifies tremendous amounts of negative karma because these virtuous acts are being performed in relations to not just one 9-foot statue, but towards the countless representations of the Buddha’s body, speech and mind contained inside it.

Before the statue was installed, extensive pujas were performed in preparation for the arrival of our Dorje Shugden statue. These were performed to invite and charge the location with the sacred energies of the Buddhas, as well as to clear obstacles in the production, transportation and installation of the statue.

The pujas were necessary because when immensely beneficial projects are underway, the negative karma of those who will benefit from the project will come to fruition. This negative karma fruitions to try and stop the project from completion, to prevent the intended recipients from experiencing the benefits. Hence, pujas are performed to ensure the project is free from obstacles. In the case of our Dorje Shugden statue, pujas performed include a Kalarupa puja performed by our very own Kecharians, as well as extensive candle and Tibetan incense (sang) offerings.

The pedestal set up for a Dorje Shugden puja to create the merits to invite the 9-foot statue to Kechara Forest Retreat.

    The 9feet Dorje Shugden has now become a major focal point of the Kechara Forest Retreat. After the Dorje Shugden was installed Rinpoche also placed hundreds of mantra stones, resulting in this Buddha as being a super charged and blessed place. With 500 mantra stones placed around Dorje Shugden grotto, once circumambulation around Dorje Shugden is equivalent to 500 circumambulations around Dorje Shugden without the mantra stones.

    With deep devotion to the guru, higher meditational insights will arise. Because of not having higher meditational insights, one will not realize the need to have devotion to the guru in order to gain higher insights. They are interdependent.~Tsem Rinpoche

    Dorje Shugden arose 400 years ago as a Dharma protector to help modern people and practitioners to remove obstacles and create a conducive environment for us to practice. His main objective is to help in our spiritual practice and liberate us from our suffering.

    There are 2 types of Dharma protectors, enlightened and non-enlightened. Dorje Shugden even though manifests in a wordly form but he is a fully enlightened Dharma protector. He is an emanation of Buddha Manjushri which is confirmed by many high lamas such as Trijang Rinpoche, Dagom Rinpoche.

    A Buddha emanates in a wordly form because due to our negative karma, we are not able to have a connection directly with an enlightened being. It is easier for the Buddha to give us assistance when they are in a wordly form. For example, our teacher, he is a Buddha but he takes rebirth in a human form so he can teach us Dharma and give us guidance directly.

    Wow stunning 9 foot Dorje Shugden statue at Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia. It arrived at the right time , where many visitors from all over Malaysia will be able to do offerings for the coming Chinese New Year. Located strategically , it transformed the surrounding area into a powerful sanctuary where we can circumambulate the Dorje Shugden statue and also his sacred mantra stones OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA. We are so fortunate to witness the traditional rituals performed by the monks of Phelgyeling Monastery. I am glad to make there for the powerful Rabney and Trusol blessing and consecration ritual on this stunning Dorje Shugden Statue.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    I am so fortunate to be able to pay homage to the new Dorje Shugden statue in Kechara Forest Retreat and also take part in cleaning the statue and attending pujas. It is indeed a memorable experience for me. Thank you Rinpoche for creating so many ways for us to plant seed and connect with the great Dorje Shugden. May all obstacles be cleared and Dorje Shugden ban be quickly lifted, and Lama Tsongkhapa teachings can be spread to all direction to benefit more people.

We are all very fortunate and blessed to have such a wonderful and spiritual place like KFR founded by our dearest Guru, H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. KFR is the best spiritual place in Malaysia for everyone to circumambulate beautiful and blessed outdoor Buddha statues to purify our negative karma and do retreats for inner peace. I truly hope to be able to go KFF more often and circumambulate all the Buddha statues and Stupas. Thank you very much Rinpoche, blog team and everyone for making this happen to benefit everyone ??????⭐️?☀️??

    Most impressive, inviting and blessed sacred ground with all signs of auspicion. May this holy place enrich the lives of the many who will visit, make offerings and benefit from the presence of the enlightened dharma protector Dorje Shugden. May the powerful prayers and mantras travel the winds in ten directions to aid all sentient beings in need.
    Great thanks to the many hands who have been integral in making Kechara what it is today. You are extensions of the Gurus compassion in your actions and the seeds you sow will continue to grow well into the future. Appreciation for the wise vision of Rinpoche, making dreams reality, showing us there is a way and for providing the opportunity to benefit from Buddha Dorje Shugden.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you so much for creating this wonderful place and statue for us to make continuous connection to Dorje Sjugden, the Protector of our time. Thank you also for sharing the many wonderful photos of many wonderful Pastors and Kecharians who have worked tirelessly to prepare the place, prepare items for insertion, to prepare the pedestal, the grotto and eventually the installation of the statue.

    From the photos, I have come to understand and deeply appreciate the meanings, and the hard work behind to ensure that the statue is set up.
    For many ordinary people, it is difficult to understand and appreciate the hard work and more so the meaning behind everything that is done for consecrating a stautue.

    I pray and dedicate merits that with this 9-foot statue, many, many, many more people who come to KFR will be blessed by Dorje Shugden and may everyone grow and deepen their Dharma journey for this life and future lives.

    Humbly yours,
    Lum Kok Luen

    Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Buddha Manjushri, there is no doubt. Trijang Rinpoche had said very clearly in his text called “Music Delighting the Oceans of Protectors” that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being. Trijang Rinpoche was not the only lama who said that, many high lamas had written praise and prayer to Dorje Shugden. They acknowledged the enlightened qualities of Dorje Shugden and assured us that we can rely on Dorje Shugden.

    If it is not because of Tsem Rinpoche, we Malaysians will not have the opportunity to learn about Dorje Shugden, let alone to do his practice. Tsem Rinpoche is very kind to build Kechara Forest Retreat and connect us with Dorje Shugden by installing so many Dorje Shugden statues in Kechara Forest Retreat. Due to our karma, Buddha Manjushri has to emanate in a worldly form to be closer to us so he can provide very swift assistance to us.

    Dorje Shugden has performed many miracles and save many lives. I have heard of stories of cancer patients being saved by Dorje Shugden; people who met in a serious accident but suffered from only scratches; people who had financial difficulty but their problem was solved after praying to Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden is a Buddha, he will not ask for anything in return. Therefore, it is very safe to propitiate him.

    nteresting read of a great Lama Tsarchen Losal Gyatso who is the founder of the Sakya tradition. One of the three branches of the Sakya School, which is part of Tibetan Buddhism. Interesting story of how his illness was occurred and meeting the mysterious lady at monastery courtyard well. The lady who gave him a small Tibetan pecha manuscript wrapped in cloth before vanishing. Apparently Vajrayogini had appeared to him leading him to the great master Doringpa at Tashi Lhunpo. Since then he studied with 63 masters of all traditions. He had travelled tremendously to various place to perform great deeds, giving teachings and benefiting all whom he encountered along his journey.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this wonderful sharing.

    interesting read of Kentrul Thubten Lamsang Rinpoche, one of our Guru previous life. He was one of the most important disciples of Kyabje Trijang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso. Kentrul Rinpoche had spent many years in remote areas like Phari on the Tibet-India border. Where he worked tirelessly to improve the condition of local monasteries and built large Buddha statues. He even built a three-storey statue of Maitreya Buddha. Highly respected by many locals and remembered by monks of the monastery for his work. Kentrul Rinpoche was also known for performing extensive pujas for people of the area. Kentrul Rinpoche will always be remembered as the lama who remained devoted to his teacher until his final moments. He went out of his way to help the sufferings, in desperate situations. His is a legacy that is timeless and beyond compare. Both Kentrul Rinpoche and our Guru Tsem Rinpoche’s activities did exhibit an unquenchable thirst and curiosity for Dharma, Guru devotion . Both have the similarities after-all. Interesting read, shared by Pastor Jean Ai on Tsem Rinpoche ‘s previous reincarnation.
    Thank you Rinpoche.

    Very interesting article of great Lamas whom I never find it bored reading over and over again. Anything related to history had me feeling excited.
    Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was a great master, meditator, teacher, logician, yogi, siddha and erudite scholar. He was an important Gelugpa lama and a contemporary of the 5th Dalai Lama’s time. Even more than three hundred years ago he was eliminated yet he continued reincarnating until present day as been confirmed by many great beings. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen in fulfilling the promise he made to Nechung protector arose as World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden, merely to serve the teachings of Je Tsongkapa and sentient beings. After realising the mistakes done by his officers 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel and even composed a prayers texts to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. He named the Chapel as Trode Khangsar which still exist to this day at Lhasa, Tibet .May more people reading this article to understand more who is Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was. An interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    The Kangxi Emperor was the third emperor of the Qing dynasty. He is considered by historians to be one of the greatest emperors in the history of China. Having ruled China over 61 years, he was the longest-reigning Chinese emperors in dynastic history. He was thought of as one of the greatest emperors because, under his rule, the Qing empire started to prosper, dynastic succession was stabilized, and he was comparatively benevolent. He was also highly educated and was known as a hardworking emperor who ruled diligently. His rule was a period of expansion, stability, and prosperity for the Chinese Empire. Kangxi gave religious freedom to all religions and had sponsored many literary works, monasteries, monks and teachers all over China, Tibet and Mongolia. He was considered an extremely modern Emperor at that time whom was loved by many. He was said to be the reincarnation of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and an emanation of Manjushri as recorded in the ancient scriptures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    The unmistaken incarnation of Panchen Sonam Drakpa was proclaimed to be Sonam Yeshe Wangpo. From birth, he spoke with clairvoyance and seemed to remember people and events of his past life. Even as a young man , he travelled tremendously as part of his retinue, with the 3rd Dalai Lama and gave various teachings as well. Throughout the journey, he had even composed verses to praise and commentaries on the teachings.

    Spirits and unseen beings are everywhere not only actually restricted to specific areas. Places such as cemeteries, abandoned houses or places where death occurred. There are many different types of spirits around us, unseen to the naked eye, but for some they could see it or sense their presence. Many people of different faith reported having experienced sense the presence of spirits. Interesting rather scary reading Steven Wong ghostly experienced in the motel . I have encounter such before staying in hotel . More scary I can say. That’s past history, since coming to Buddhism I am not scare at all , I will recite DS Mantra . Later do prayers and dedicate to them .

    Reading this article written by Tsering Shakya, again as it tells us more and understand better of the situation suffered by Tibetan people. Due to the Dorje Shugden controversy many Tibetans suffered . Many of them migrated to other countries to the west for better opportunities. Tibetan culture and identity is inseparably linked to Tibetan Buddhism. Somehow once in a foreign land they tend to lose their traditions and cultures slowly over times. Living in foreign land , it difficult to maintain their true identity. For them Tibetans maintaining links to the homeland presents a very unique challenges tasks. If only the Tibetan leadership more opened, forgo the past and accepts as what HH Dalai Lama said that Dorje Shugden is no evil and do no harm. Tibetan Buddhist could continue practicing the Dorje Shugden’s practice. Tibetan should stand united to protect the Tibetan heritage and culture instead discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners so much so had divided the Tibetans. Many of them left and migrated else where to look for better livelihood.
    Tsem Rinpoche had gone through a rough time , rejected twice from the moment of birth from Taiwan to US and travelling to India where Rinpoche found a place called home then. Later to Malaysia as advice by his Guru.
    To this end, the discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners must end for the sake of the all Tibetans living in India and Nepal .
    A very good article by Tsering Shakya, more people should read it to understand better.

    Feeling disappointed when someone a Sangha supposed to promote peace, harmony and helps to give teachings to those who are new instead promoting hatred, cursing another person. Its wrong to tell people to break their samaya with their teachers. They must be given the wrong information about Dorje Shugden and Shugden Buddhist practitioners . The Tibetan Leadership has spread their lies and causing misunderstanding among the Tibetans. The rights of Dorje Shugden practitioners were denied just because for practicing their religion as they have done for the past 400 years. Dorje Shugden practitioners are side-lined from their own community, denied medical care, education and even employment in government offices. The Tibetan Leadership has instituted this ban against Dorje Shugden causing sufferings among many. Sad indeed hopefully these controversy will dissolve soon as more people understand and know that Dorje Shugden is not an evil as claimed by the Tibetan leadership.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this sharing.

    Buddhism is one of the most popular religions all over the world. Buddha statues have different shapes, sizes, different gestures or mudras and styles of presentation. Well said by Tsem Rinpoche the bigger and more Buddha statues makes a difference in our life. It gives out more powerful positive and relaxing energy to help us. concentrate better. One of the methods for us to purify our karma to suit our current karma-bound situation. By circumambulating 500 mantra stones one time we could accumulate much more merits in just one round of circumambulation. All thanks to Rinpoche having this idea with many mantra stones as possible for us to circumambulate. The larger the Buddha image, the more merits are collected the greatest amount of benefit for one who sincerely circumambulating.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this amazing post and explaining all the details for us to understand more.

    Ra Lotsawa said to be an emanation of Manjushri was a great tantric master who had used wrathful means to subjugate his opponents. He was declared to be a saint and a fully enlightened Buddha. Many viewed as a murderous villain with magical powers and by some as a liberator of human suffering. Ra Lotsawa used his power and magical abilities to defeat his enemies rather rivals to accumulate wealth. He received many Empowerments and practices, which came into conflict with other lamas. His life offers a rare view into the often overlooked roles of magic and sorcery in the Buddhist tradition. In the book The All-Pervading Melodious Drumbeat tells the story of Ra Lotsawa Dorjé Drak . It was written by Ra Yeshe Sengye, and translated for the first time into English. Despite this obsessed legacy, his fame also rests on an illustrious career as a translator of Buddhist scriptures. Ra Lotsawa was so revered in Tibetan Buddhism even though he was so evil where nobody can denied. Interesting read an classic account of one of the most colourful and memorable figures in Tibetan Buddhist history.

    Tibetan incense is natural incense used in Tibetan Buddhism rituals for 1,300 years. In Tibet, for many centuries, incense has been a part of their daily lives. Widely used for relaxation, meditation and the cleansing of the home environment. Incense is also widely used in Buddhist temples and monasteries, as an offerings. In Buddhism, symbolic offerings are made to the Triple Gem, giving rise to contemplative gratitude and inspiration. Offering incense is a symbol of purification. It is a very powerful way to revitalize environment ,removing obstacles and purifying one’s karma. Incense offering to our Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden is indeed very helpful and beneficial. It helps in many ways as such to clear any obstacles ,and so on.All thanks to our Guru Tsem Rinpoche for sharing this practice .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Beatrice Ooi for this sharing and explaining the details of incense. We are so fortunate to learn, understand and practice it.

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.
    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

In 2021, we've encountered far too many challenges—Pandemic, months-long lockdown, landslide, and flood. We are proud to witness Malaysians helping one another as these agonies come sequentially. Looking back to 2021, Kechara Soup Kitchen has made significant progress, with more to come in 2022. Every year, we move a little closer to our vision. We are immensely thankful to have such dedicated teams of volunteers willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Not to mention our sponsors and donors; none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for helping the underprivileged to a better future. Have a blessed year ahead from our hearts to your hearts. #2022 #newyear #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment
