7 FEET-1000-armed Avalokiteshvara arrived!!

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

A few days ago, a few students and I went to Viva Home for a shopping trip. I was browsing around a few Oriental shops and came across a few nice items… In one of the shops, they had this beautiful 1000-arm Avaloketishvara (also known as Kuan Yin or Chenrezig) statue. I fell in love with Him on sight!

Today, I asked Andrew to arrange for Avalokiteshvara to be invited back. I love Avalokiteshvara… I used to do tens of thousands of His mantras when I was around 11-12 years old in Turkey Swamp, back in New Jersey and at home. I used to visualize Him at the center of the lake arising with head looking down and slowly looking up at me blazing with the brilliance of the sun, sitting on a lotus calmly and I would hold this visualization as clear as I can while I recited His mantra. I would chant Om Mani Padme Hung and “call” out to Him, reciting His mantra furiously and pray to be in communion with Him. I prayed to acquire His qualities as Avalokiteshvara always prays to be born in the lowest hells and the most horrible situations to be of benefit to the denizens of those realms. He is willing to endure the most difficult situations in order to benefit others. This quality in Avalokiteshvara touched me deeply and brought me to tears many times. I was enamoured to Him till now because of this and prayed for the same thing.

The mantra “Om Mani Padme Hung” was the first mantra I ever learnt. My maternal grandmother, Queen Dechen, taught me how to recite Avalokiteshvara’s holy mantra… I still do His mantra as part of my daily sadhana daily without missing it ever. She told me it is very important to recite this always and not to forget the mantra. I am grateful to my grandma for teaching me.

Do take a look at the pictures below…THIS FORM OF AVALOKITESHVARA is made so beautiful..?? He arrived and we escorted Him to my residence and set up and had a mini puja/prayers with a small group that had come for a meeting with me.

I am so happy to have this holy and beautiful image of 1,000 armed Avalokiteshvara made in the Chinese Buddhist style.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article of the 7ft 1000-armed Avalokiteshvara. Rejoice to Rinpoche for inviting Avalokiteshvara to your ladrang. May the people who have helped with setting up the Avalokiteshvara statue be blessed. This statue is indeed very beautiful and very detailed.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

    Dear Rinpoche,
    some years ago, i did find the Sutra “Great Compassion Dharani Sutra” of the 1000 armed “Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva” the Sutra mentions a lot of great benefits for those how can recite the “Great Compassionate Heart Great Dharani”: Namo ratna-trayya …befor an Mandala-altar, but as a wester man grow up in a atheist-family, i don´t know how to practies or set up altars? can you dear Rinpoche reveal or ask someone to reveal how to erect the Mandala-altar mentioned in the Dharani Sutra for the benefit of your western Students?

    thank you so much for all your work
    Best Wishs

  3. Cliff on Apr 11, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    Amazing! Its so tall! Funny how Sean almost reaches the height of Avalokiteshvara haha. I really like the photo of Rinpoche and Li Kim’s three beautiful sons sitting next to Rinpoche, its really adorable and im so happy for them to receive the blessings from a living buddha side by side. It really looks like everyone had a fun time cleaning, preparing, offering and piecing together Avalokiteshvara. Cute jason trying to reach a higher spot for Avalokiteshvara’s arm haha.

    I really enjoyed reading Rinpoche’s description of how Rinpoche would “visualize Him at the center of the lake arising with head looking down and slowly looking up at me blazing with the brilliance of the sun, sitting on a lotus calmly” it was so clear and precise I could imagine it myself. Every night i still do my prayers trying to visualise Vajrayogini as instructed by Rinpoche but my mind still isn’t strong enough to have a clear precise image or i feel i get distracted a lot, i’m still trying to maintain discipline with my visualizations.

    Om mane pedme hum was too my first mantra taught to chant as often as I could from my Grandmother and Mother. We basically grew up with it and I can still remember my grandparents playing the mantra chanting on a radio every morning as they make their incense offering to Kuan Yin. I really enjoyed those memories.

    Thank Rinpoche for sharing with us a short story of your experience in first meeting Avalokiteshvara, it brought me good memories and happiness and also i learnt a short story of Avalokiteshvara which I would forever remember. Im glad to see so many happy faces inviting Avalokiteshvara into the Haven. It looks like it brought even more peace and happiness into everyone’s lives than there already is.

    I pray that Rinpoche is feeling well and happy.

      Hello, wonderful statue, I bought one that is 5 feet tall and looks different in the face but the rest is very much the same, does anyone know where they were made and when?

  4. Elsie Toy on Feb 21, 2013 at 8:28 am

    Avaloketishvara is really beautiful and I love the sigh to Avaloketishvara the many arms reaching out for us and yet some ignore and yet some could not understand how a buddha can have so many arms. I love Chenrezig cos the mantra is easy and so effective. _/|\_.

  5. Keng tan on Jan 6, 2013 at 1:23 am

    One word-AWESOME!!! I don’t know why but the first time I saw a 1000 armed Avalokiteshvara was at the Manjushri Centre in Ullverston, in the Lake District, UK. I fell in love with Him. I said I want one in my home and I am still looking.

  6. Joy on Jan 6, 2013 at 12:31 am

    Rinpoche really has a knack in picking the most exquisite items and definitely Buddha statues! Rinpoche must have felt something really divine about this Kuan Yin and truly this is a 1000 arm Kuan Yin that is one of the most spectacular I’ve ever seen. She is just so incredibly regal yet gentle, her face just glows with love and compassion. The carvings is amazing but what is most amazing is that she looks so alive!

    How fortunate we are to be able to invite her in to the Haven Ladrang and receive her divine blessings. Indeed she is a very special one.

  8. Mei Fong on Dec 20, 2012 at 4:22 pm

    Such finishing of the 1000arm Avalokiteshvara is so rare and indeed it is a sight to be behold of. The detailing of the statue is done up so well. 7ft makes it so tall and eye catching to everyone who sees the statue. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the pictures with us.

  9. Lydia Unger on Dec 17, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    Dear Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and Team,

    how beautiful the statue of Avalokiteshvara is! Please visit our web-site and you will see that we have also s statue like this. We love Avalokiteshvar very much!!! We would like to purchase another one. May we kindly ask you to tell us where? It would be a great joy for us.

    With our very best wishes for all from the Buddha-Museum in Germany

    Much Metta

    Om Mani Padme Hum……

  11. Uncle Eddie on Oct 4, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    Kuan Yin Pusa (or Goddess of Mercy in Chinese) is the first Buddhist Bodisattva, whom I came to hear of, and got exposed to, when at a very young age. Later on, only after meeting up with Rinpoche, then only I came to learn that “Kuan Yin Pusa” is actually known as Chenrizig in Tibetan, and Avalokitesvara in India. At Penang in Keloksi Temple, the huge Kuan Yin statue stands powerful, popular and a compassionate bodhisattva to grant wishes to benefit all sentient beings! Om mani padme hung was the mantra I first learned from Rinpoche in the very early years! Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us this holy and so beautiful image of 1,000 armed Avalokiteshavara made in Chinese Byddhist style.

  12. abby F on Sep 29, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    To me this statue is really a HUGE one and 1000-arm Avalokiteshvara is very rare to see. Since I was a kid, I always heard my father tell me about 1000-arm Avalokiteshvara and he used to play the VCD of Great Compassion Mantra, and that was the time I saw 1000-arm Avalokiteshvara. And because of this, I feel that 1000-arm Avalokiteshvara is so ‘unreal’ because He only appears in TV. LOL.

    I hope that I will be able to do my prayer and make offerings in front of Him one day. Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. 🙂

  13. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 27, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    Chenrezig compassion for all sentient beings is legendary, in one story after he has liberated all the hells, the next moment hell filled up again and Chenrezig became despondent and his head split into a thousand pieces. Then Amithabha Buddha put him back together in the form of 1000 armed Chenrezig, Chenrezig hears the wails of beings going through suffering.

  14. May Ong on Sep 25, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Beautiful 1,000 arm Chenrezig to bless us all.

  15. tenzin llhamo on Sep 25, 2012 at 8:27 pm

    He is truly amazingly magnificently BEAUTIFUL! The iconography on the statue is so detailed. I remember when I was younger, I love to clean my altar and the ceramic Kuan Yin. I have always like Kuan Yin, no matter in what form He comes in. He is always so serene. How can one not feel the peace when looking at His beautiful face. May we be as compassionate as Him always. Thank you Rinpoche for the beautiful pictures and update.

  16. The Yen on Sep 24, 2012 at 2:14 pm

    Truly MAJESTIC, truly befitting the qualities and strength of Avalokiteshvara. I am in so love with this masterpiece.

  17. Lim Han Nee on Sep 24, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    Beautiful and regal, like a queen, and with such a look of compassion! The thousand arms outstretched and every ready to reach out to every single being who needs help, every sentient being from all six realms. Looking at you, Avalokiteshvara of a thousand arms, my heart expands with great love for you as I make a wish : may I quickly develop love and compassion without boundaries, like that you show to all beings.

  18. judy lam on Sep 24, 2012 at 12:01 am

    I love the picture of ‘Avalokiteshvara and I”. May Avalokiteshvara bless Rinpoche with long life and may all that set their sights on this beautiful statue be blessed too.

  19. Helena Chin on Sep 23, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    It is wonderful and it is our honour to prepare the flower offering to this beautiful 1000-arm Avaloketishvara. Thank you Rinpoche. He is magnificent, stunning and super gorgeous 🙂
    My mama taught me his mantra when i was very young, and it is one of the mantra i always recite until today. OM MANI PADME HUM 🙂
    Thank you for the post and the beautiful pictures.

  20. patsy on Sep 23, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    What a magnificent statue with fine craftsmanship! This Avalokeitishvara is so beautiful. So serene yet powerful! May all those who see Him be blessed by His compassionate energy.

    Rinpoche is one with 1000 arms Cherenzig. His determination to save all from suffer and the effort he has put in. Cherenzig/Guan Yin is one of the Buddhas closer to the heart of many especially Asian and Chinese, may Rinpoche’s teachings spread to every corner of the world and close to all’s heart.

  33. Sheryl KH (JB) on Sep 22, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these step-by-step pictures of invitation process. I enjoy reading them through.

    I like especially the picture of Rinpoche taken with Avaloketishvara. Rinpoche looks very happy from the depth of your heart, it seems to me that with this statue, Rinpoche has fulfilled your wish of having Avaloketishvara close to you…kind of like fulfilling your childhood wishes.

    This Avalokestishvara is beautiful. I wish Rinpoche happiness always.

  34. So Kin Hoe on Sep 22, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche. I am so fortunate to see a beautiful and compassionate 1000 armed Avalokiteshvara. We are blessed through the kindness from Rinpoche and Avalokiteshvara.

  35. Yee Ling Cheah on Sep 22, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this blog. We are very blessed to see this beautiful 1,000 armed Avalokiteshvara, particularly love the picture of you sitting in front of Avalokiteshvara. How blessed everyone involved with the set up. May they and all who pray to Avalokiteshvara aspire to have the same compassionate qualities. Om mani padme hum!

  36. Vivek Karmaa Subba on Sep 22, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Sikkim has so many Rinpoches, but there is only puja and no preachings, I wish you could come over and spread your words of wisdom, and even encourage Sikkimies monks to give such “preachings” here in Sikkim. The “death meditation” video I saw in the youtube, gave me a CRYSTAL clear knowledge about one of the main principles of Buddhism… there still are so many unanswered questions… I know I will find the answers, might take some time. Great work your holiness. Thank you so very much. -Vivek Karmaa Subba, Sikkim

  37. Sean Pang on Sep 22, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    Wow, this is awesome… The statue looks so peaceful yet so powerful.

    May Kechara and all Kecharians be the same: enjoying inner peace and tirelessly reaching out to all mankind with kindness!

  38. monica on Sep 22, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    lovely, nice…so wonderful!!!!may you all enjoy many,many,many 1000s of avalokiteshvaras blessings.

  39. sweekeong on Sep 22, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    Very beautiful, Rinpoche! Thank you for sharing the photos from assembly to setup. The size of a 7 feet 1000-armed Avalokiteshvara is awesome. Just seeing this his form is a blessing, it brings peace and calms my mind. 🙂

  40. Andrew Boon on Sep 22, 2012 at 4:07 pm

    It was indeed a privilege and honour to help invite Avalokiteshvara back. He is indeed truly a sight to behold! Everyone chipped in to help wherever to could from dusting, cleaning, wiping down, setting up the offerings, carrying, installing, etc….

    How fortunate for us working in the Ladrang to be able to gaze upon The Buddha of supreme compassion’s image everyday.

  41. lewkwanleng on Sep 22, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    Seeing this Kuan Yin give such peace energy… May all who see Him be blessed!

  42. Irene Lim on Sep 22, 2012 at 3:24 pm

    1000-Arm Avalokiteshvara and I have so much affinity. I was fortunate to be at the invitation party and facilitating the statue to arrive. She is so magnificient.

  43. Pastor Susan on Sep 22, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    This Avalokiteshvara is breath taking! OMB!! And he’s 7 feet. How grand 🙂 Can’t take my eyes off the picture of Avalokiteshvara and Rinpoche. I see compassion come to life through Rinpoche and this “statue” comes to life because of Rinpoche.

  44. kailash on Sep 22, 2012 at 11:58 am

    Many Many Supplications to the Most Venerable Rinpoche,
    Chag Chal Lo.
    Your Eminence,This is the most fabulous statue of 1000 armed Avalokitesvara I have ever seen.The other one I saw was at Dharamsala,India, in the temple of His Holiness. But this statue appears to be so live and real.It seems the Diety may actually come out of this statue or the statue may communicate.
    It would be really a great thing if the actual long Dharani of Chenrezig, as it existed in sanskrit and is preserved in the Tibetan tradition, is also published in this Blog. This is a long mantra of Chenrezig (different from the regular Dharani).The Chines version / Translation, is given in the Dharani Sutra(Published by the BTTS, propounded by Zen Master,Most Ven. Hsuan Hua).However I heard that long Mantra exists in the Tibetan tradition also.It is probably also known as Nilkantha Dharani.
    Regards

  45. soonhuat on Sep 22, 2012 at 11:47 am

    Wow Rinpoche, this is very beautiful statue. I saw you mentioned in the blog that you were rushing to Viva Home, I was hoping you could find some goodie but I did not expect you found such a beautiful “goodie”. I like the statue a lot, it has very antique look.

  46. DR on Sep 22, 2012 at 11:04 am

    What an incredibly elegant statue. I am so fortunate to be invited to Rinpoche’s residence last night to witness this meritorious event. I could not help visualizing this statue in a temple by the sea and everyday thousands of people who pass by on boats can have a glimpse of this holy image and be blessed by Him.

  47. Ethan Hoo on Sep 22, 2012 at 10:31 am

    Magnificent! He’s so beautiful! What a sight to behold and have audience with this beautiful Chenrezig. So much blessing from the Buddha of Compassion.

  48. Jay Jae on Sep 22, 2012 at 8:04 am

    This is the most Magnificent 1000 arm Chenresig statue I have seen! I love the intricacy of the hands and to the detail of the halo!

    I remembered when Rinpoche went shopping for statues and saw a 1000 arm Chenresig similar to this one, Rinpoche told me that if Rinpoche had just one altar to himself, He would put this form of Chenresig as his main object of veneration and nothing else”

    Rinpoche has really deep affinity with statues and beautiful rare ones. If u think about it, Rinpoche is like this 1000 arm Chenresig, through the organization and the Ladrang, he has 1000 arms reaching out to help the needy. Through the web, Rinpoche has 1000 eyes looking for sufferings, where ever it sprouts and addresses it.

    Tagpu Pemavajra was a highly attained lama who had many authentic visions of the Buddhas. Amazing he had even received direct teachings from them. He had 13 vision from different deity of their practice such as Citamani Tara and Dorje Shugden. Tagpu Pemavajra was indeed a great master that passed down the complete teachings, practice, and the initiation of Dorje Shugden, to benefits countless sentient beings,generations after generations. Hence Dorje Shugden practice has been passed on from Tagpu Pemavajra to the present time. He had played an important role in the Gelug tradition.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a great highly attained master well known for his astral travel especially for his pure visions of deities.

    Interesting read of Loppon Sonam Tsemo an important Tibetan sprititual leader and Buddhist scholar. According to his biography, when Loppon Sonam Tsemo was born, words written by dakinis appeared above the doorway to the great stupa in Bodhgaya, India. At a very young age he was able to describe memories of eleven previous lives. That’s amazing ability he had. He even composed the treatise Door to the Dharma at the holy shrine of Nalatse. Followed by receiving pure visions of the Bodhisattva Manjushri, Shri Hevajra, Green Tara and Arya Acala . A truly great Master who had dedicated the rest of his life to studies and meditation for the benefit of all beings. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this great sharing.

    Thanks you for the incredible tales of Ji Gong, I truly enjoyed knowing the actual monk in picture. Ji Gong symbolised hope and kindness of dharma to the poor and underprivileged, the spirit of Ji Gong will continue to survive through time because nothing could destroy that.

    I had fascinated watching a number of movies that had related Ji Gong kindness, compassion and his skillful actions that had such a large influence in the world and that until today.

    Dorje Shugden was one of their main protector practices and considered an emanation of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion. There has been an unbroken tradition of the practice of Dorje Shugden as an enlightened protector since early 1700 till now. We are fortunate we learn, practice of purifying, pacifying and removing obstacles and illnesses. All thanks to our Lama Tsem Rinpoche, bringing the practice to Malaysia. Dorje Shugden had been propitiated by Sakya lineage 18th centuries ago. Dorje Shugden has been viewed as an Enlightened Protector. Evidence from the Sakya throne holders themselves, who are the holders of the Sakya tradition’s most precious Tantric transmission.
    comes from none other than the Sakya throne holders themselves, who are the holders of the Sakya tradition’s most precious Tantric transmission. The Sakya lineage holders are considered to be emanations of Avalokiteshvara and Manjushri, and their family lineage is regarded as divine. They had propitiated Dorje Shugden as a fully enlightened being and composed a praise to him. This prayer has since achieved prominence and is still widely used today.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing as it is marvelous to read that the supreme Dharmapala, Dorje Shugden is none sectarian. As confirmed by the 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen (1871 – 1935) who wrote,
    The Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden Tsel definitively is Avalokiteshvara.

    Beautiful White Tara paintings by a very talented artist indeed . Love those paintings , merely looking at it is a blessing. Each of those paintings has it unique way which tells us a thousand words. White Tara is associated with maternal compassion and healing. In many representations, she has eyes in the palms of her hands and on the soles of her feet, as well as in the center of her forehead, representing her power to see those who are suffering and offer her aid.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing and explaining all about it for us to understand better.

    It is quite sad to know the condition of our Earth. Pollution essentially affects the quality of human life than one can imagine. The resources earth provides us are limited. They are blessings which we do not count.

    All these are mainly caused by human activities which harm the environment. It works in mysterious ways, sometimes which cannot be seen by the naked eye. Human has become selfish and is utilizing the earth’s resources at a instant rapid rate to enjoy privileges however forgotten on the effect of it in long run.

    Earth is a privilege given to us by nature and it’s our responsibility to protect it . Our well
    being solely depends on this. We should create awareness and start taking action to help our mother nature instead of looking for another earth. However, this is soon going to be our reality if we do not save the earth now.

    Revisit this incredible sharing of the history of Bhutan and the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Bhutan a beautiful landlocked country have been long connected with Dorje Shugden ever since the days of 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche Jetsun Jigme Norbu long and established tradition in Bhutan. Bhutan recognizes Buddhism as the state’s “spiritual heritage,” provides for freedom of religion, and bans discrimination based on religious belief. Buddhism was first introduced to Bhutan in the 7th century by Guru Padmasambhava. The Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal is considered to be the founder of modern day Bhutan. Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal was notable Drukpa Kagyu masters of this nation advocated the practice of the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. These goes back to the time of the 3rd Drubwang Tenzin Zangpo from the incarnation lineage where he had authored part of an early propitiation text to Dorje Shugden. Followed by the 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu, from the reincarnation lineage of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, also included extensive prayers to Dorje Shugden in his collected works. Interesting findings the Gyalwang Drukpas are considered to be emanations of Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion. All liturgies to Dorje Shugden can be found in the collected works of prominent high lamas whose incarnation lineages are deeply linked with the very fabric of Bhutan’s history. The 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche Jetsun Jigme Norbu is highly attained and cannot be wrong about Dorje Shugden. The 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu’s autobiography tells all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing. May more and more people know the truth the very truth and realised that Dorje Shugden is not evil but a very powerful dharma protector. The practice of Dorje Shugden is indeed very beneficial which had been practiced centuries ago.

    Great reading this post by Martin Desai of Huffington Post that brought out the truth of the illegal ban to the world. Huffpost an American news aggregator and blog, with localized and international editions, publishing a fair and logical article on the religious discrimination issue. It’s the Dorje Shugden controversy that’s have been going on along long time ago. For over more than 20 years Dorje Shugden people had been suffering from discrimination and segregation for their practice. Thank you Martin Desai for high lighting this injustice issue and sharing it is to the world. Thank you Huffington Post for publishing. Those who practice Dorje Shugden are being denied of service from hospitals and clinics. Some even are not allowed to work in government sectors. There’s more proof to support that it has happened like checking into hotel as in this post . Reading this article will tell all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    GREAT NEWS…..Jewish priests are promoting vegetarianism to their followers . Most modern-day Jews are not vegetarian. Following a vegetarian diet are varied but include health benefits, such as reducing life threading diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and some cancers disease. Vegetarians appear to have lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and lower rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes . That’s very true. By not eating meat one helps to discourage the cruel treatment of animals such as cows, pigs, chickens, and other animals on factory farms for consumption. One also helps to improve the environment, insofar as factory farms are major sources of water and air pollution, including gasses that contribute to global warming. By not eating meat one helps oneself, since a vegetarian diet is far healthier for humans than a diet based on meat. Jewish Vegetarian Society and others did the right approach to values of compassion for animals, protection of the environment, and concern for health reasons and spiritual well-being.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing on behalf of those animals who cannot speak for themselves.

    John Shelby Spong an American bishop of the Episcopal Church. A liberal Christian theologian, religion commentator, and author, spoke bravely of what he thought of the Christian belief away from theism and traditional doctrines. To some Christians, Bishop John Shelby Spong was a heretic. Entrusted with defending the faith, he dismissed notions of the resurrection of Jesus that have been foundations of Christianity for centuries. Bishop Spong came to believe that insistence on an inerrant, literal view of the Bible obscures truth and destroys faith. He was an outspoken leader who believed that faith and worship should be open to marginalised groups. He sermonize a powerful message of love and justice that would resonate in an increasingly secular age. He gain international fame while writing more than two dozen books, appearing on TV shows as well. He was the recipient of three honorary awards to date before his passing. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring 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.
    5 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

We are in the third week of Ramadan this year, and kind volunteers have never failed to feed people in need since Tengku Zatashah started this meaningful #zerofoodwastage initiative in 2016. The aim is to benefit the underprivileged with nice surplus food collected from Ramadan buffets. Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families. THANK YOU, Tengku, dedicated volunteers and hotel partners, for making this Ramadan special for the underprivileged. #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment - KSK @ Vivian

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.
