(By Tsem Rinpoche)

This Buddha image is located inside the Mahabodhi Temple in Bodhgaya. This temple is in the shape of a stupa, and it marks the site where Lord Buddha attained enlightenment. This image was created by a disciple of Buddha 60 years after his parinirvana. Hence it is said to look like him as the disciple had seen Buddha with her own eyes.

    The Mahabodhi Temple is a religious site in India which marks the spot where the Buddha first attained enlightenment. It’s one of the most sacred sites in all of Buddhism built around 260 BCE . Bodhgaya in Bihar is the heart and birthplace of Buddhism . The Mahabodhi Temple was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The peace of the Bodhgaya Temple welcomes all races and it has attracted hundred thousands of pilgrims yearly as well as architecture enthusiast. The main Mahabodhi Temple complex is home to the legendary Bodhi Tree and as well as the temple itself. Walking around following Buddha ‘s footsteps to discover several places of spiritual significance around the temple. Worth going and a must place for pilgrims.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    It is very blessed indeed to be able to view this holy image of Buddha Shakyamuni that is extremely special because it was created by the disciple of Buddha who had seen Buddha with her own eyes. The statue was created 60 years after Buddha’s parinirvana. May everyone creates the merit to be able to visit Bodhgaya and be blessed by this holy image in person. Thank you for this sharing.

    I was so fortunate to be able to join a pilgrimage with fellow Kecharians to this holy place to meet with Buddha Sakyamuni. I loved looking at his beautiful and serene face. Although the pilgrims are plenty especially when making offerings to the Buddha, the supreme peace can still be felt. It was a journey of discovering the self when making circumambulations around the holy stupa where Buddha’s statue resides. I loved sitting in front of Buddha Manjushri, reciting his mantras. This holy place is definitely a place must visit but then where my Guru resides is an even holier place to be at or for pilgrimage.

    Thank you very much Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this Buddha image of Mahabodhi Temple in Bodhgaya. It’s really beautiful and blessed to see a Buddha image.?

  6. Lin Mun on Jul 26, 2017 at 9:50 pm

    This is indeed a very nice Buddha statue. Feel so calm, looking at him. It is our privilege to be able to see this holy Buddha statue of Mahabodhi Temple which resembles the real look of Buddha. Hope I would be able to join a pilgrimage trip to Bodhgaya where Buddha got enlightened. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this picture.

  7. Sadi on Feb 21, 2015 at 6:11 pm

    Serene and powerful. Homage to Buddha Shakyamuni.

  8. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 28, 2012 at 2:06 am

    This was the perfect form that buddha chose to become enlightened with, it has a lot of significance that is for sure.

  9. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jul 13, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    This buddha looks both grand and serene. I am at lost as to what other words I can use to describe him.

    May I have the merits to go Bodhgaya and make offerings to this lord Buddha.

  10. tfreon on Jul 1, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Wish i have chances to view this statue

    I have never been to Bodhgaya before but would definitely love to go there for a pilgrimage. The Mahabodhi Temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has great importance in history as it is one of the earliest surviving Buddhist temples built entirely in brick.

    The following is an excerpt from UNESCO’s website regarding the Mahabodhi Temple.

    [Criterion (i): The grand 50m high Mahabodhi Temple of the 5th-6th centuries is of immense importance, being one of the earliest temple constructions existing in the Indian sub-continent. It is one of the few representations of the architectural genius of the Indian people in constructing fully developed brick temples in that era.

    Criterion (ii): The Mahabodhi Temple, one of the few surviving examples of early brick structures in India, has had significant influence in the development of architecture over the centuries.

    Criterion (iii): The site of the Mahabodhi Temple provides exceptional records for the events associated with the life of Buddha and subsequent worship, particularly since Emperor Asoka built the first temple, the balustrades, and the memorial column.

    Criterion (iv): The present Temple is one of the earliest and most imposing structures built entirely in brick from the late Gupta period. The sculpted stone balustrades are an outstanding early example of sculptural reliefs in stone.

    Criterion (vi): The Mahabodhi Temple Complex in Bodh Gaya has direct association with the life of the Lord Buddha, being the place where He attained the supreme and perfect insight.]

    Reading this article again brings back alot of fond memories of my first trip to Bodhgaya in Dec 2004. It was also the first time I met Rinpoche. I also took my refuge vows inside this stupa from Rinpoche. I did not understand the full significance of it then as I went as a tourist, but came back an official Buddhist and student of a Tibetan Lama! Now, 18 years on, and looking back, I can not comprehend how can a resistant, spoilt ex-socialite like me can be that fortunate. It must be strong aspirational prayers I made in many past live times for it to manifest.

    Since that trip, I have gone for pilgrimage to Bodhgaya several more times. Each time was together with Rinpoche except for last October when I was able to assist Sharon when she brought her parents along. Do read http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/students-friends/entering-sharons-blog-space.html for more accounts of our trip.

    In our life time we must go to visit Mahabodhi temple in Bodhgaya, the place that Buddha attended enlightenment. This is the holy place that can purify our negative karma and trigger a Dharma seed in us so that we can start in our spiritual path.

    There are lot of monks, nuns and lay people from over the world visit Bodhgaya, some come to do meditation, some for do prostration, some reading a book, some have a dharma session and some do prayer etc.

    There are also many temple near by Dodhgaya which you can visit when you go there.

  14. Anila on Oct 7, 2010 at 5:20 pm

    I did not know that Bodhgaya is one of the places that a confirmed Buddhist must visit at least once in their lifetime. I nearly missed my chance. I visited Tsem Rinpoche in Ganden many times where Rinpoche was staying after he went back to India in 1992. Everytime I was there I will stay for at least one month the shortest period. One day Rinpoche ask me to go with Ms Lim, his assistant to visit Bodhgaya when I was in Ganden with him. I freaked out and refuse to go. I just don’t like travelling. But Rinpoche say I must go and hauled me up to Kensur Rinpoche Jampa Yeshe to request me to go. Anyway I went. But never regret going as I will not be able to go now as I have a mobility problem with my legs.

  15. Uncle Eddie on Sep 23, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    As far as i can still remember, a lucky group of 54 people, many have come from as far as Phillipines, Singapore, tne Netherlands, Switzerland, and New Zealand set off on a journey in 2004 that had been eagerly anticipated by many in the preceeding months. All were going to Bodhgaya, led by our Guru, Tsem Rinpoche to make a connection with the place where Lord Buddha gained Enlightenment. For some, it was the beginning of a new journey to the most holy place on earth. For those new to Dharma, they were to formally take refuge in the 3 jewels, and for the “older” ones, to renew their refuge comitments.
    From the describtions given, the Mahabodhi Temple at Bodhgaya was built in the shape of a Stupa, where all offerings of incenses, robes,fruits,and flowers can be made to the statue of Lord Buddha whose face was said to be the closest resemblence of the real lord Buddha’s face – 60 years after his death, a woman who had seen lord Buddha in person during Buddha’s lifetime, asked and commissioned her 4 sons to build an exact image of him in accordance to her detailed describtions!
    Well-lit up by fabulous spotlights, the stupa itself also offered a magnificient Architectural Marvel to behold – a glowing “Beacon of hope” to inspire those who are going on to the path to enlightenment. A trip out there it seems is worth an lifetime of travel, at least to the assualt of your senses on “smells, sounds, sights and taste”!

  16. henry ooi on Jul 9, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    Oh yes Justin R, I remember your obstacles in getting from NZ to KL and onward to Bodhgaya in the cold winter of 2005 there.
    The surroundings of Mahabodhi Temple were really surreal. As Angel wrote, we made many offerings during our stay. I recall Elena getting up early in the morning to do prostrations and trying to collect fallen leaves from the Bodhi tree. I managed to collect some and they are being placed on my Buddha Shakyamuni altar at home.
    The village where Mahabodhi Temple stands was dirty and the majority of the villagers were poor. Many beggars hanged around the temple chasing after visitors to the temple. We were advised by some Gaden monks, led by Venerable Kating Rinpoche, not to give alms to the beggars or else we would be swarmed.
    We also visited other beautiful temples, sometimes we walked, at times by rickshaws. That was how Rinpoche met a rickshaw man he used to know on his visit there many years ago. We visited his house where he and his family lived poorly. We made offerings of lentils, flour, salt, sugar, detergent etc to them.
    Rinpoche said that Bodhgaya is a must for Buddhists to visit in this lifetime. If you have not been, save up now and await the next trip there.

  17. Huck on Jul 9, 2010 at 5:54 pm

    No doubt Bodhgaya is a very, very special place with great spiritual significance for all Buddhists. And I have heard so much about it being empowered with so much energy and spirituality. So before I went there in March 2010, I was like looking forward to being automatically “zapped” with some of its energy and spirituality to return home with great stories and glimpses of enlightenment! But how wrong was I, because I realised after my trip that more than just a place, Bodhgaya required the correct frame of mind to really benefit from the experience. Mine was unfortunately not, as I was there part like a tourist, part like an adventurer, part like a form of escapism and only incidentally, a Buddhist. My loss really, though am glad was able to do some prayers and offer some incense there. Guess nothing beats going with an inspiring spiritual guide like some of you have had the merit of doing so.

  18. Sean on Jul 9, 2010 at 5:19 pm

    The image of the Buddha in MahaBodhi Temple, Bodhgaya, looks so beautiful. The details make the Buddha image look more like a person. I guess it should be like that any ways as the person who made this beautiful image had the great fortune of seeing the great holy saint, Buddha Shakyamuni with her own eyes! One day, I would like to visit the temple to witness its beauty up close. May I have a link to a website to provide me with more information on the Buddha image and the Stupa-like structure of the temple. I think it would be quite cool if Kechara World Peace Centre will have a Stupa-like structure as a building or chapel for aesthetic reasons. The Buddha attained nirvana in Bodhgaya. That is why that place is a sacred area. I wish Rinpoche a long life so he can benefit everyone by teaching every single soul in this vast, wide world till everyone can achieve enlightenment just like Buddha Shakyamuni!

  19. Wendy on Jul 9, 2010 at 4:52 am

    I have heard so much about Bodhgaya, the place where Buddha Sakyamuni attained enlightenment and will be very place future Buddhas who come to this world attain enlightenment. Many Buddhist go to Bodhgaya for pilgrimage as it is one of the 4 places that Buddha Sakyamuni recommends that one must visit within one’s lifetime. It is believe that Bodhgya is a power place where any virtuous actions performed at this place will purify tremendous amount of negative karma and accumulate tremendous amount merits. It is also said that if you make an aspiration or a wish in Bodhgaya, it will definitely come true. One of my friends who went there on a pilgrimage attested to that. He told me that the wish he made at Bodhgaya came true almost immediately. I believe him totally as I can see the evidence of his “wish come true” even up to today. I hope one day I will have the chance to go to Bodhgaya to feel the energy of such a power place.

    Henry and I were very blessed to see, so so beautiful of Buddha Image inside the Mahabodhi Temple in Bodhgaya. It has been one of the UNFORGETTABLE TRIP for us.
    Year 2005, under the blessing and guidance of our KIND LAMA, H. E. TSEM TULKU RINPOCHE, a group of us were led by HIM for A PILGRIMAGE TOUR TO THE HOLY PLACE WHERE BUDDHA SHAKYAMUNI ENLIGHTENED. It was a VERY MEANINGFUL TRIP!!
    THE IMAGE OF BUDDHA IS VERY BIG AND HE LOOKED SURREAL. I remembered before we arrived the temple, Rinpoche has kindly arranged offering for each one of us individually, to make offerings to BUDDHA. WE HAVE OUR REFUGE CEREMONY UNDER THE HOLY TREE WHERE BUDDHA ACHIEVED HIS ENLIGHTENMENT. All of us have offered up a list a set of monk’s rope. We were there for three nites. Everyday, Rinpoche led us there, give us DHARMA TALKED AND CIRCUMABULATE. During that time, the weather there was really cool but nice. I PRAY, MAY I HAVE ANOTHER CHANCE AGAIN, LEAD BY RINPOCHE TO BE THERE WITH MY HUSBAND AND KIDS.
    THANK YOU RINPOCHE FOR THE WONDERFUL AND MEANINGFUL TRIP…!!
    Love, angel

    Lord Buddha Sakyamuni…. The Buddha of our time , the Buddha that teaches every living sentient being in this lifetime. Sakyamuni teachings will be essential to protect all living being to not fall in to the pit degeneration ! It is said HE gave 84,000 teachings during His time in this world. I hold Lord Sakyamuni very dearly close to my heart.
    I grow up in Klang and stay there for 21 years. During those time Wesak Day was once a year event. My family and i specifically will take time to visit this Buddhist Temple. The Sakyamuni statue that i like the most and feel most close to http://img139.imageshack.us/img139/8976/wesak6.jpg. ( the picture not to clear ) But this Sakyamuni are made from full white marble. Very beautiful. Enjoy !

    Bodhgaya is the most important Buddhist pilgrimage place in the world. It’s the place where Buddha meditation and attended enlightenment. There are Buddhists and tourists from all over the world visit Bodhgaya, some come for study Buddhism and some for meditation, or simply absorb the positive energy that surrounds the place. It is a quiet and peaceful place.
    This impressive statue is indeed great but not only in physical form but in spiritual aspects too. It embodies the greatness of Lord Buddha through his serenity and meditative pose.
    A group of 30 plus of us are very fortunate to be there and made an offering of a set of robe to Buddha statue with Rinpoche in end of year 2005. Rinpoche also very kind to give us the refuge vows to Lord Buddha under his guidance at one of the bodhi tree in this holy place. It was a great experience and stuck in my mind

  24. Thierry on Jul 4, 2010 at 4:31 pm

    The statue is very beautiful, and very precious. Not only for it representing the enlightened body of the Buddha, but also because it was created only a few years after his passing into paranirvana and is considered to be ressembling the Buddha closely.
    I find that watching at the experession of peace on his face is very soothing, it makes me want to reach that level of peace too, may I reach that level of peace myself too!
    I was not “lucky” enough to be part of the group of Rinpoche’s students that went to Bodghaya with him, but I rejoyce to the fact that many were actually there with him, and that many of those who were there are still studying with him and inspiring newbies by their care, attention and nurturing to open wide their arms and their hearts to Dharma.

  25. Justin Ripley on Jul 4, 2010 at 6:41 am

    I agree with you Paul, this was my first ever pilgrimage, and also with a Rinpoche some more. I still remember the obstacles I had to go through to even make it. I had to drive 24hrs thanks to the very organized Indian embassy who hadn’t processed my visa in time, then straight from car I jumped into a plane to fly for 11hrs to Malaysia, then stop over for 4hrs before getting into another plane to fly to sri lanka before could get a nights rest.
    Well I’m glad I decided to say no to meeting up with everyone after the pilgrimage. I can imagine it would be like going to Gaden http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/2010/04/i-visited-gaden-with-an-oxygen-tank.html the same feelings. There are so many different schools of Buddhism making pilgrimage to the place of Buddha’s enlightenment. That seeing so many in one place chanting and praying, doing their own rituals you can gain faith that the Buddha’s teachings have real results, you just have to look around you.

  26. SK Yap on Jul 4, 2010 at 1:36 am

    All the Buddha images in Bodhgaya is just simple breath taking. I still remember the Pilgrimage tour led by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche in 2005 to Bodhgaya with a group of 30 plus student and the experience was such an eye-opener.
    My favorite is of course Mahabodhi Temple that houses the Buddha image created directly by Buddha Shakyamuni’s disciple. This image is said to resemble Buddha Shakyamuni the most.
    Under Rinpoche’s guidance, each of us had the fortune to offer butter lamps and a set of new robes to the Buddha during that trip.
    I still remember we did circumambulations and chanted mantras around the stupa for hours during our trip. However, it was winter so it was so cold but nothing could stop us from our devotions. They are also many monks doing prostration retreats around the stupa. They were prostrating non-stop except to sleep and eat.
    I hope I have the merits to visit the Great Mahabodhi Temple at Bodhgaya again!
    Paul

  27. Elena on Jul 3, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    Hehehe that original article was A LOT longer (true to Jean Ai form lah)…it got cut down by the editors for its original appearance in our quarterly newsletter, no more caves. I remember one of the happiest times in my life being in Bodhgaya. The amount of peace I felt waking up at 5am everyday to do prostrations at the stupa is incomparable. It was cool, quiet, calm and peaceful…I know that many people spend months there doing retreats and completing their preliminary practices. I think it would be lovely if one day Kechara Discovery could plan for the same…and I can’t wait until KWPC comes up when we’ll have our own retreat huts to do the same!

  28. Beng Kooi on Jul 3, 2010 at 7:10 am

    Neat photo taken during a pilgrimage to Bodhgaya with Tsem Tulku Rinpoche in 2005. Rinpoche also granted refuge to the pilgrims – check out the 12-part video on http://youtube.com/tsemtulku
    Or you can also read about the pilgrimage to Bodhgaya with Tsem Tulku Rinpoche here
    http://www.kechara.com/travel/travel-with-us/past-pilgrimages/bodhgaya-2005/
    Bodhgaya is one of the four great Buddhist pilgrimage sites. Shakyamuni Buddha himself recommended that all Buddhists should visit these places in their life time, mainly comprising the locations of Buddha’s birth (Lumbini), Enlightenment (Bodhgaya), Turning the Wheel of Dharma (Sarnath) and Parinirvana (Kushinagar). Rinpoche has expounded on the benefits of pilgrimage so many times, to the extent of setting up a department called Kechara Discovery to lead people on REAL pilgrimages to all the holy sites around the world. I can’t wait for the next pilgrimage!!

    I believe that in life, we come across so many different experiences and opportunities to learn and grow, and in turn, every choice we make and everything that we go through shapes us into who we are. Challenging situations take us beyond our comfort zone and trigger fears and anxieties but also have the power to become moments of truth.

    It takes a lot of time to reached a level of acceptance and by doing dharma work we are trying to inculcate compassion into our lives . This powerful teaching helps to purify our karma and transform our thoughts.

    Thank you for the sharing, It serves as a reminder for all of us, of the reason why we are doing Dharma work and what kind of attitude one should have.

    Niguma is considered one of the most important and influential yoginis and Vajrayana teachers. A mysterious eleventh-century Kashmiri woman who became the source of a major Tibetan Buddhist practice lineage. Niguma was considered an emanation of the great dakini Mandarava. The legacy of Niguma’s teachings and spiritual practices is still available today within the Shangpa Kagyu tradition. Her teachings are also embodied within the Gelug school as well as the other sects of Tibetan Buddhism. Interesting related to Niguma and Khyungpo Naljor about the 500 gold coins and so forth. A very rare insight into the unusual role of women in the development of Buddhist history.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David so this sharing.

    I was once a hypocrites before but coming to Dharma I came out from a nut shell and still learning. Positive thinking, rather, is used so that we can learn, grow, and evolve from what we experience in life. When failure is possible, view it as a challenge, as it makes us stronger. Accept whatever comes along , mistakes and try to correct it and move on. Its better to learn our mistakes then not knowing it. I don’t mind to accept mistakes as I learn from it , with a positive mind. Profound teachings indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great teachings. Will read again and again to remind myself.

    Great teachings …..doing purification practice through Vajrasattva’s practice and prostrations. I have plenty to go , glad to come across this old article which I will try to absolve whatever much I could. Reading it , I realised its indeed a very beneficial and effective practice in purifying our negative karma. Since the MCO I have been doing prostrations I could feel a peace and calmness within my mind.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great teaching which I truly treasured.

    The Potala Palace is a fortress in the city of Lhasa, in Tibet. It was once a winter imperial palace of the Dalai Lamas but has been a museum since then . This palace is the highest ancient palace in the world, it also once served as a seat of government, and monastery, it’s now a must visit place for Tibet . As the most iconic architecture and top UNESCO world heritage Site in Tibet, at 3750 m . From the Palace one could see the whole area of the Holy Lhasa city. constructed in the 18th century, is a masterpiece of Tibetan art. The beauty of this Palace and the ancient architecture of the buildings integration in a striking landscape, added to their historic and religious interest. Hundred thousands of pilgrims visited this Holy city yearly. I am fortunate to have gone to this Holy sites with my friends. Worth going on a pilgrimage .

    Dungkar Lozang Trinlé a Tibetan historian and Buddhist scholar was one of the most important Tibetan historians of the 20th century. He was recognised as the eighth incarnation of Dungdkar Rinpoche. an expert on traditional poetics and a campaigner for modern Tibetan education and cultural development, a rare polymath among Tibetan scholars of the 20th century. After years of forced labour during the Cultural Revolution, he became a leading advocate of education in the Tibetan language. His legacy lives on till this day in his prodigious array of Tibetan-language historical texts and important commentaries on religious subjects. He was well known, recognized by many and also internationally.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you for the interesting sharing, I love using natural remedies as it helps me in many ways and furthermore it is organic. Besides, easily available in our garden and flower pots.

    Herbal and natural remedies are very popular methods used today since it has many medical benefits. Herbal remedies have proven effective in healing serious illnesses without leaving any side effects.

    Many plant based herbs remedies are safe to consume and help us to relief symptoms faster. Natural remedies can be prepared easily and less time consuming. Most of them are widely used for immediate relief from symptoms, boost energy or lose weight, but we need to be very careful choosing the right herbs.

    Panchen Sonam Drakpa the Fifteenth Ganden Tripa, throneholder of Ganden Monastery was a great master, writer, abbot of all monastic universities. His texts form the core curriculum for most Gelugpa monasteries. He was unique, having served as abbot of the three main Gelug monasteries – Ganden, Sera and Drepung. His collected works spans fourteen volumes, constituting the main textbooks which are used till today in the educational curriculum. His works are highly regarded and been relied on by monks to this day in Drepung Loseling and Ganden Shartse Monasteries. He worked for the welfare of others and the Dharma until he entered clear light.
    Interesting read of a GREAT Lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    History is full of unexplained mysteries, and for some reason, we as humans tend to concentrate on the mysterious things more than the undeniable facts. I do enjoyed reading all these mysteries , unexplained and unsolved events. Every one of us might has had weird experiences, things that happen in life. Unexplained phenomena always caught the public eyes imagination. Due to some sort of supernatural connection, it could be strange sightings. Amazing of how Astronaut carving was found on a cathedral that was built 1100 years ago. A picture of a giant mystery river snake wending its way down a tropical river, in Southeast Asia . This I have read about it sometimes ago in papers. A great grandmother’s face seen in the photo of an American girl taken in her cell phone . Well these pictures were unexplained and very mysteries indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this .

    Interesting read ….Sonam Yeshe Wangpo was unmistaken incarnation of Panchen Sonam Drakpa. At such a young tulku (reincarnated lama), he was already giving teachings and inspired those present in the hall. He completed his monastic ordination under many great masters , abbots and so forth. He did travelled tremendously and giving various teachings. Throughout the journey he even composed notable verses of praise of the Dalai Lama along with many ritual liturgies. However, he entered clear light when he was only 37 years old.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    What a cool concept to create Buddhist gardeners who do actual farming and also farm/cultivate their minds. Traditional Tibetan prayer flags, prayer bells, and prayer wheels can be seen and heard in every part of the Odiyan mandala complex .

    The Odiyan Retreat Center as a sanctuary,both spiritual and ecological , and one that has created a wholesome community living within it, is a must to visit.Thank you very much for the wonderful article.

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

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

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together!
