Me?

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

 

Dear Rinpoche,

I heard someone saying that if we look close enough the “Me” that exists in the morning is not the same “Me” that goes to sleep at night. Since we are a collection of moments due to cause and effect. This had me thinking; if the “Me” that is alive right now, is not going to be the same “Me” in a future life; then why bother striving for Buddha hood in the first place? It won’t be “Me” who finally fulfills the vow of becoming a fully enlightened being for the benefit of all. Can you please share your thoughts on this? -from Rafael


Dear Rafael,

That is a good question…I like it.

The me in the morning and night are ‘different’. The me now and in future lives are ‘different’. But that is because this me is still subject to impermanence due to it’s unenlightened nature.

Once enlightened..it remains the same me…LOL.

Thanks, TR

    About all we can do in life is be who we are that’s call ME. Things in life are always changing. Nothing stays the same as everything is subject to change. Everything is changeable , everything appears and disappears in a moment. Everything in life is just for a while, it comes and goes nothing belongs to us. We need to change to have our mind transformed by learning, practicing Dharma and accept the law of impermanence. There is no blissful peace until one passes beyond the agony of life and death.

    Every of us have a different personality…..a different “Me” in the morning and at night.As long as the “Me’do no harm to others but benefits others the ‘Me’ will be the same “Me”.We need to change to be a better “Me’ to make a BIG difference in life.By learning , practicing Dharma will lead us to happiness .
    Thank Rinpoche for sharing.

  3. Lin Mun on Apr 1, 2017 at 12:35 pm

    I think the ‘Me’ will keep changing because we are still not enlightened yet. Our mind and thought keep changing every seconds. As long as we are still not enlightened nothing is stable or permanent. However, we can strive to achieve a better ‘Me’ by changing our attitude, mind, practise and doing more dharma work to transform ‘Me’.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.

    Amazing stuff from Rinpoche.

    Permanence can only exist once we are enlightened.

  6. Pastor Han Nee on Apr 25, 2014 at 11:11 pm

    The ‘me’ keeps changing because it is essentially impermanent. The important thing is that the changing ‘me’ becomes progressively transformed into a better ‘me’, less self -cherishing and more focused outward toward others, towards serving, helping and benefiting them .

    As the goal is Buddhahood, a state of full awakening,there should be no more change in the ‘me’ ultimately. In fact, there should be no more ‘me’ nor ‘you’. No more duality.

    This is really tough question for the deluded worldly being like me to understand.Let’s try to answer it from what we had learn.
    From the Lamrim, what that precipitated us to took rebirth into samsara are Karma and Delusion. The “Karma” part are responsible for resultanting us taken a physical form as human or an animal and etc in this life together with train load of others karmic imprint for example. The “Delusion” part arises from “ignorance,ma Rig Pa” mean not knowing, lack of wisdom hence with the five contaminated aggregates.

    In the Name and Form (nama-rupa)link from chart wheel of life chart (twelve dependent link), “Form” link is formed the moment the white of father and the red of mother met( the composition of the 4 great element ie. earth water fire and wind). The “name” link are the four contaminated aggregates ie feeling, recognition(perception), compositional factor(volition), consciousness.

    PabongKha Rinpoche said If we have the Karma but without delusion, karmic imprint by itself could not precipitated another rebirth. If we have not the Karma but with Delusion, the delusion will be the cause for us to had the Karma.

    Knowing that both Karma and Delusion we had are non-static in nature. Karmaic imprint could be cleared with true refuge and applying the 4 opponent power with renunciation or Boddhicitta motivation. Delusion or ignorance (unaware of reality)can be defeated through acquire of Wisdom(knowledge) through study, debate, meditation.

    The above theory could all be summed up to what Tsem Rinpoche advised us. De-learn( abandon of non virtue), Relearn (cultivation of virtues)so that it become your very second nature.Love,compassion, boddhicitta, clarity of mind…you fill up the rest!

    The Mahayana tenet assert that it is possible for a rebirth with uncontaminated aggregates just as a Buddhisattva could take rebirth in samsara without being sully by it.where else the Hinayana school state otherwise.

    Back to the original question, the “me” in the morning is not the same as the “me” in the evening.
    There are two parts constitute to the “me” here, the “Physical me” and the “mental me “. The “physical me” is nonstatic could be easily understood by examined for example:that the “me”are not the same as when we are a toddles and the adult us now.
    The “mental me”: We could be happiness in the morning and greatly agitated in the afternoon and so on.There are nothing but a series of mental stream that arise and fade away.
    The view(delusion)we hold that things are as permanent or wanting them to be as we wanted causes great agitation in our mindstream.
    These understanding lead us to a “mini” scale realisation of the 3 seals of Dharma
    that is impermanence,Dukkha (unable to satisfy), non-self.

    Why bother to attain Buddhahood? The very same suffering,unhappiness that we experienced in our course of life that are the reasons for us the search for a permanence happiness! ie. to become someone that fully understood the very nature of phenomena happen around us and take positive reaction to it with wisdom (two levels of self liberation or liberation for others benefit).By constant training ourselves in this life with virtuous action of body, speech and mind will leave an Karmic habituation imprint into our mindstream, the same imprint is what we bring forward to our next life though we could have another totally different physical body.
    From the original post it suggested that Rafael had the notion of the same physical body are that being brought forward when he mentioned “It won’t be “Me” who finally fulfills the vow of becoming a fully enlightened being for the benefit of all”.
    Pls. correct me if my understanding of the subject is obscure and could lead to further misunderstand of the Dharma.
    Hand Folded.

    Dear Rinpoche, I still don’t understand what was Rafael talking about. Especially the morning me and the night me hhare different. Maybe he is saying thathe has a split personality or something even more conplicated. What is the difference between the morning me and the night me. I think there aren’t any answers. Well, that is for me. Not sure about others.

  9. Cliff on Apr 4, 2014 at 9:04 am

    Wow, this had me in a waddle for a bit I had my sister explain it to me. From what I understand, the question is stating that because the me in the morning is different to the me that goes to sleep, why strive for Buddhahood? The me is subject to impermance because we are in samsara so the me is subject to karma therefore the me would always change. When enlightened the me will then stay the same me because that me is no longer subject to karma. Because the me would remain the same when enlightened is because an enlightened being can no longer denegrate once achieving the wisdom and compassion of Buddhahood.

    • Sila on Apr 5, 2014 at 10:12 am

      Hi, there is no me to start with. And no me to end with …. even in Buddhahood , in enlightenment nothing stays the same. That’s the understanding of the truth.

  10. Sean Wang on Apr 3, 2014 at 10:26 pm

    Everything is subject to impermanence or change. Even your own mind. Nothing is set in stone. Nothing is solidified

  11. patriciasnodgrass on Apr 3, 2014 at 9:32 pm

    I understand there are two components to mind: the gross and the subtle. The gross mind is the mind that we are aware of. This is the mind that changes. Where I become confused is in regards to the subtle mind. I understand that the subtle mind carries the seeds for enlightenment. What I’m unsure about is whether or not the subtle mind is permanent in that this is the mind that undergoes rebirth after death, and that it is also impermanent that it is capable of casting off the delusions of the gross mind and be able to transform under the proper conditions? Please help me understand. O.o

  12. Irene Lim on Apr 3, 2014 at 6:44 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche, I absolutely love this explanation of yours. It cannot be clearer and more precise than this.

  13. Lawrence on Apr 3, 2014 at 4:20 am

    One of the best explanation of “Dependent Origination” is here http://www.dhammatalks.net/Books6/Bhikkhu_Buddhadasa_Paticcasamuppada.htm
    Yet, this is not all the True!
    There is a point from which words are not of any help.

  14. Paris on Feb 14, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    LOL I love this, such a wonderful conundrum! I guess even the me of ‘now’ is different from the me in the next second. Biologically, it is said that our cells are changing all the time, so even on a physical level we are always ‘different’ and renewed. On an inward level, I guess the nature of our thoughts, speech and action also determine how much we are changing. Karma can change in an instant if only our thoughts and perspectives change; in which case the ‘me’ also changes from instant to instant, momentarily.

    This is quite empowering actually – the thought that we are determining our futures and initiating change (whether good or bad!) at every given second.

  15. Julia Tan on Jul 7, 2012 at 3:28 am

    Our mind unstable like a monkey mind. Even when we doing our Sadhana, our mind still think about food, the next thing in our mind will be what are we having for dinner. That means we are totally not in control of our mind until we actually achieve enlightenment. Hence we need to do meditation to come to calm our mind.

  16. su an on Jun 20, 2012 at 12:18 am

    For “normal” people, lay people and such… the “me” is never constant. From child to adult, our personalities kept changing, some traits improve, we gain more wisdom in certain areas, some bad habits remain and ingrain, we may not want to learn anymore. We can’t decide how we want to be, and we know how we SHOULD be, but yet we can’t convince ourselves to be that. If you watched a video of yourself 10 years ago and compare with how you are now… you’d probably cringe or laugh at how you were at that time!

    If you watch Tsem Rinpoche’s youtube video teachings say 10 years ago, and you watch his teachings now… his personality and level of wisdom and compassion has been consistently at such highest state. I guess once one has realised true compassion and wisdom, one’s expression of it does not change or “improve further” with the years… because one is already “there” – the point of no more learning (?)

    Hmmm..makes lotsa sense..giving it a shot!! Thanks TR! Love & Light, Alda

  18. Margaretlee on Jun 5, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    A lot of us are interested to know what happens in the state of enlightenment, as when we pray and take refuge, we always begin with “I and all sentient beings, until we reach enlightenment, go for refuge to Buddha, Dharma and Sangha”

    Rinpoche has once said in his teachings, as long as there is “ME” or “I”, there can be no enlightenment. In other words, as I interpret it, the “Ego” does not exist any more when in enlightenment. No ego, no self…… How does it feel? I really have no clue, perhaps it is a state of nothingless….the complete cessation of karma and thus sufferings. a continuum state of happiness….

    Thanks Rafael for such a thought provoking question and all those who have shared here.

  19. Lim Han Nee on Jun 5, 2011 at 1:31 am

    As Rinpoche says, the state of Enlightenment is a permanent state as the Me doesn’t change anymore.When we are fully enlightened, then we are totally free from suffering, as there is no more cause for suffering left.

    However,Nirvana means “cessation of suffering” – a state attained by an arhat. It is not a permanent state: when an arhat, in Nirvana,realizes that he hasn’t attained ultimate freedom from suffering or full enlightenment, he will want to be reborn in samsara and begin to tread the Path all over again.(This is what I understand from Rinpoche’s teaching and from the Lamrim).

  20. Sandy on Jun 4, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    Two amazing questions in one day – AND it’s sunny outside. It’s times like these I’m saddened by impermanence…

    I think the “me” most of us refer to isn’t the “me” who will work towards and eventually attain Enlightenment. I have to say first of all that this is an excellent question from Rafael. I used to ask the same question all the time (only, with God): If everything is how it should be, if every experience is a result of karma, if God has designed me in this way, then why bother to change anything, especially spiritual practice? If karma has deemed me selfish in this life, who am I to argue?

    But let’s say (for extreme effect, and to quickly illustrate the point) that you are attacked and left badly wounded in the street. You wouldn’t just lie there because, naturally, the bleeding wounds will heal in their own time or – if you run out of time and bleed to death, well, that’s just how it’s meant to be. No, you’d scream for help, call a doctor, get to hospital – whatever it takes. If you had any means of bettering your condition, you’d do everything in your power to do so.

    It’s similar with the mind. I’m not the 5-year old child I was 23 years ago (cringe!). If I see a balloon now, or an ice-cream truck, they are not the most important things in the universe any more (pretty close, though).
    However, everything I have been and everything I have experienced is the sum of who I am now. If, at the age of eight, the young boy didn’t ask the school minister about people who are reborn again, and if he was satisfied with being told it was nonsense, I might be a Christian now. But thanks to the eight-year old boy feeling something didn’t quite add up, it lit a spark and eventually helped me to where I am now in spiritual practice.

    So I wouldn’t say the “me” from this morning ever vanishes entirely. Elements of who we have been all our lives are still with us in some form or other. As with all things, spirituality to me seems a progressive thing. Without the “me” of this moment, there’s no possibility of the “me” of the future attaining Enlightenment.

    Therefore, as I see it, one must “bother” because one has every possibility of bettering the state of the mind. You are the you of your future lives – your mind now contributes to the mind you will have 20 lifetimes from now.

    The “wrong” perception of “me” is when you look at “Rafael” who (I make the following up, since I don’t know your likes) enjoys coffee or plays guitar or loves to read poetry. We define ourselves (usually) by external labels. “I’m a Buddhist” “I’m a musician” “I’m a writer”. In my next life, perhaps I won’t be able to play a single note or write a single word, so I have to conclude that these things aren’t “me”, even though my gross mind thinks these things are exactly who I am.

    When you reach Enlightenment (so I’ve read), you don’t stop making mistakes, and you don’t suddenly become divine (there’s a story that suggests directly after his Enlightenment, the Buddha encountered a merchant who asked him what he had discovered. The Buddha gave such a fanciful explanation of what he had attained and the merchant thought him a mad man. Later – post Enlightenment – the Buddha realised he made a mistake and that he would have to explain what he had discovered more skilfully in future).

    Enlightenment seems to be the way to true happiness, to cease suffering through desires, attachments and aversions. You don’t stop facing problems, but whatever you face, you truly recognise the nature of it and – as a result – are able to let go and enjoy lasting happiness and contentment because of that ability.

    Seems worthwhile enough to me to continue to bother…

    Amazing question, Rafael – thanks!

    Kind regards,
    Sandy

  21. KimT on Jun 4, 2011 at 4:58 pm

    Dear Lama, I not sure if this is a silly question. If Life and everything in Samsara is impermanent, is there “permanence” In Nirvana? I guess life is ever changing because cause and effects are always at work, as past karma also is. If Enlightenment is free of cause and effects, what is the state of Enlightenment? What happens in that state? thank you Lama.

    • David Lai on Feb 14, 2013 at 8:20 pm

      Well, I know this is a long time coming. Here’s my answer to your queries if you don’t mind. When a being achieve full enlightenment, he/she cannot degenerate or reverse from that state because wisdom and compassion of a Buddha is the natural state of our mind. Therefore, when we become enlightened, we have just realized the true nature of our mind. Here’s how the Buddha described his enlightenment in 3 stages:-

      1. During the first watch of the night, the Buddha discovered all of his past lives in the cycle of rebirth, realizing that he had been born and reborn countless times before.
      2. During the second watch, the Buddha discovered the Law of Karma, and the importance of living by the Eightfold Path.
      3. During the third watch, the Buddha discovered the Four Noble Truths, finally reaching Nirvana.

      imho : morning , night .. , 9 pm , 12 am ..what we call ” the time ” is just a label and we use it to define somethings and caught us in a routine habitual , we scheduled our own activities with that labelling .. well , every moments the mind keep changing and create some cause and effects so does our own speech and activities ,, we could not sitting and hiding some place means not to do any activities of these … , and of course a continuum of mind , speech , activities that still “yourself “.. but the moments of each continuum is not a previous you already .. correct my opinion if i am in wrong views , i need to study and know more as well , thhks

    Money is an important factor in everyone’s life. Holding cash on you hand isn’t enough. It’s how you value it, use it, grow it, and spend it, that matters most. Money is only a tool or medium to achieve happiness, it may not guarantee happiness.

    In this Covid -19 pandemic situations we know many lost their jobs , The middle class shrunk as thousands of people were pushed in poor class . On the other hand rich people were not affected much financially.

    If one seek happiness, friendliness, charitable disposition, concern for others, and similar attributes, no amount of money can buy these, you get them only by cultivating positive attitudes at the very young age.

    Contrary to what most people think, it is not money or the love of money which is the root of evil—it is greed, a love of power and authority, poverty, and a fear of want which are often the roots of evil in this world.

    One of the greatest blessings for Buddhist practitioners of our time manifested all because of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen a great scholar-saint. In the book “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors“, the Third Trijang Rinpoche, Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso had confirmed Depa Norbu as the murderer of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen. The Third Trijang Rinpoche, Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso was a Gelugpa Lama and a direct disciple of Pabongkhapa Déchen Nyingpo. He was a junior tutor of the H H the 14th Dalai Lama and also a teacher who had taught many Gelug Lamas in the West. Due to jealousy and envy court officers of the 5th Dalai Lama murdered Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen without the 5th Dalai Lama knowledge. It was at Depa Norbu’s hand and under his orders that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was murdered. Interesting read of this post.

    In a nutshell, Hong Kong is famous for attractions such as Causeway Bay, The Peak, and Hong Kong Disneyland. A city where skyscrapers meet centuries-old temples, Hong Kong is also known for its night markets filled with delights like dim sum and egg waffles. There’s so much more to this vibrant city. From a stunning skyline to surprising and gorgeous natural sceneries . There are many places of interest for locals and tourist such as Hong Kong Disneyland, Tian Tan Buddha , temple street night market to name a few. Renowned as the culinary capital of Asia, Hong Kong is a world of exquisite, mouth-watering international dining options and most peaceful place to visit. The imposing structure Tsing Ma Bridge is one of the most prominent landmarks of Hong Kong and that links it to Lantau Island.
    I have not been to this beautiful Hong Kong yet but heard so much about the beauty which one day love to visit. Interesting read.

    Beautiful unique island that’s belongs to Japan with a beautiful history. Okinawa is Japan’s southernmost prefecture, consisting of a few dozen, small beautiful islands including many inhabited islands over a vast ocean area. This particular island is a so-called Blue Zone, an area where the people live longer than most others elsewhere in the world. Okinawans are known for their longevity. Okinawa has amazing star-gazing, diving, a unique cuisine and yes, cherry blossoms too. Its also known as the “Hawaii of Japan”. The seas surrounding Okinawa’s islands are considered among the world’s most beautiful with coral reefs and abundant marine wildlife. That’s wonderful with many attractions for tourist to explore especially the Gyokusendo Cave. Its a natural museum beautifully carved over 300,000 years where this limestone cave is grown on a coral reef. Looking at those amazing pictures of the caves tell all. Interesting read and a place worth visiting to get away from the hot weather and the noise of cities. A place with plenty of interests, nice foods , cultural celebration and so forth.

    Thank you for this very interesting article on the amazing Xuanzang and his journey to the West. He is particularly famous for his valuable and historical spiritual journey to India. The life and adventures of a Chinese monk who made a 17-year journey to bring Buddhist teachings from India to China.

    Buddhism became more prevalent and more widely understood in China and subsequently elsewhere in the world. The record of his pilgrimage helps us to study and understand Buddhism and the cultures along the Silk Roads. It seems the Dharma has a life of its own as it worked its way to the West and the rest of the modern and developed world.

    I admire all these translators who made the teachings available to the rest of humanity of having translated it to the dominant language of today, and from that to other languages as well.

    Oprah Winfrey was once a television host, a producer, actress and philanthropist. Been the world’s only black billionaire, that has remained the greatest black philanthropist in American history. The Oprah Winfrey Show ended with thousands of episodes over 25 years. The show’s host addressed serious topics from racism, AIDS and sexual abuse and provided light-hearted moments for viewers. From celebrity interviews to the comedy interviews , which I did enjoyed watching those shows. I always loved and appreciated how she a stand out person willing to represent her people, and her opinions were very valid at times.
    Even in the face of adversity and hardship, she had gone through she made it to where she is now. Inspiring story behind , from rag to riches. Interesting read.

    Meditations are excellent for cognitive enhanced performance in our lives as well as relaxation. The silence and stillness we experience in meditation and
    the increased happiness and diminished stress. Calming our mind and gaining insight . Researchers had also observed that there is an immediate dramatic increase in performance on cognitive tasks following only Vajrayana styles meditation. Even just a single session of Vajrayana meditation have amazing benefits that can lead to radical enhancements in brain performance. That’s wonderful. Different meditation techniques have different results yet all meditation have excellent effects
    on the mind and body of each individual who practiced it.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

By switching off our lights for one hour, we can make a substantial difference in energy consumption and can help reduce the effect of global warming on this planet. Earth Hour motivates people to look beyond the hour and has become a major catalyst for positive environmental impact. Its very important to preserving our environment for our future generations. Glad that Malaysia had joined the World to mark The Earth Hour in 2013.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    In folklore, a ghost is the soul or spirit of a dead person appear to the living. Descriptions of ghosts vary widely that exist everywhere depending on the person who see it. Ghosts generally appearing for reasons. These could range from unsolved murders, forced suicides, preventable tragedies and so forth.
    Reading this post has a better understanding of how to solve or rather handle such situation. I do believe ghost do exist after all. To me ,we respect and having compassion for all those unseen beings we so call it ghost. Learning Buddhism and putting into practice, we have the knowledge to deal them. Doing prayers and dedicate to them to relief their sufferings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    So touching reading article again. Lama Yeshe a rare attained being indeed giving inspiration to many , leaving a legacy . He was one of the most beloved Tibetan Buddhist masters of the late twentieth century. He was co-founded Kopan Monastery (1969) and the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (1975). He followed the Gelug tradition, and was considered unconventional in his teaching style. He is legendary pushes people’s buttons in his teaching similar to Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings . All the pushing is for the students to be better in life. We are indeed fortunate to have Rinpoche at Kechara Forest Retreat , Malaysia . Many of us have benefited from Rinpoche’s teachings .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Interesting stories behind of this Tsem Ladrang – The House of Devotion at Gaden Monastery . Established and sponsored by Rinpoche’s birth father, Lobsang Gyatso. Tsem Rinpoche offered Tsem Ladrang to Kensur Rinpoche his teacher after leaving for Malaysia as advice by Kensur Rinpoche who was affectionately known as ‘the bodhisattva abbot’.
    Thank you Pastor David for this sharing.

    Interesting read of Dr R Nyamaa ‘s biography. Dr R Nyamaa been the very first Mongolian woman doctor of bone tuberculosis. She is a multifaceted woman who works to empower herself and empower others. To be a doctor at those days is definitely brave and courageous. A great teacher having brought many changes to the medical world, introducing many new initiatives and practices in the field of training and treatment. She did published more than 60 articles in research reports, edited 4 manuals and 4 textbooks for students and doctors. She held several post and had received many rewards for her work in medical fields. She continued to serve at the First State Medical Centre till her retirement. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Before reading this post I used to think witches are women wearing black and pointed hats having evil or wicked magical powers. They practice and believes to have supernatural skills and abilities such as the casting of spells. Interesting read of this post very informative indeed. I understand better now the role of witches and they have nothing to do with worshipping something negative. Many people have a lot of misconception regarding witches in fact. Through history and long ago they have been prejudiced but not now many came to realise they deserve understanding and respect. Clear and detail explanation watching those videos.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

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.
    4 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

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep. One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya". Our heartfelt thank-you goes to Lotuss Stores for being a dependable source of food aid and for #helpingthepoor with us. #kecharafoodbank #makingadifference #kitajagakita #charity #foodbank #bantuan #ngomalaysia #givingback #strongertogether - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

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
