The power of Ruchok

In preparation for the Kechara Forest Retreat, we are planning to build many big stupas, which will bless the area and form pivotal points for circumambulation around the land. People can also make offerings at the stupas, to generate a lot of merit or to pray for their loved ones.

We can put many precious items inside stupas or statues as an offering and to generate continuous merit and good karma. So people can send in photos of their loved ones, personal precious items like jewellery or heirlooms, or anything you like. You can also sponsor blessed items like Dharma texts, wealth vases, chakras etc. to be placed inside the stupa. This is considered an offering and will create a lot of merit, continuously.

Before we place items into the stupa, Tsem Rinpoche will be doing a ruchok ritual and everyone is invited to submit their personal items (hair and nails) for blessing in this ritual.  (please see details for submission of these items below).

Ruchok is a special ritual that directly blesses personal hairs, nails, bones or ashes of a being (“ru” meaning bones/ashes). The items are then considered consecrated and put into a stupa or Buddha statue. For as long as that stupa or statue is around and benefiting beings, blessings and merit will continue to be generated for every single person or animal whose items are contained within. It is a way for us to create a very strong connection with the Buddhas, for ourselves and loved ones, which is a connection that will continue even far into our future lives.

 

How does a Ruchok blessing work?

This ruchok ritual is based upon the Vajrayogini tantra – this means that the person(s) who the ritual is being done for will be blessed by Vajrayogini. More importantly, the blessing creates a connection for the person(s) to receive the sacred practice of Vajrayogini and achieve her same enlightened state in the future.

Through the course of the ritual, the personal hair and nails of the person are blessed. They become not just the hair and nails of an ordinary being but are generated as Vajrayogini herself. Therefore, when we put the items into the Vajrayogini stupa, they are not just hair and nails, but should be regarded as actual Vajrayoginis. This is very powerful – when people make prayers, offerings, prostrations or circumambulations towards this stupa, they are doing this towards thousands of Vajrayoginis. It is a collection of merit for the person who had the ritual done for them, and for future people who will make offerings and prayers towards the stupa.

It is possible to do the ruchok for a living person or for one who has passed away. We can also do ruchok for ourselves, but we must have initiation into either Yamantaka or Vajrayogini tantras and have permission from a qualified Lama to do the practice.

If we are doing ruchok for someone who has passed away, we use their ashes or a part of their body e.g. teeth / hair / bones, to bless their remains before making tsa tsas to put into a stupa. Or, we can put these items directly into the stupa as they are.

If we are doing ruchok for someone who is alive, we use their nails or hair. The purpose of the ruchok, in this case, is to purify their karma.

There are many vast benefits of this ritual, some of which are outlined below. Mainly, it helps us to purify a lot of negative karmas, to generate merit to support our spiritual journey and worldly endeavours, and to create a very profound connection to the Buddhas into the future. 

The benefits of ruchok, for beings who are living:

1)      Powerful purification

2)      Generation of continuous merit

3)      Releasing powerful negative karma before they die e.g. karma accumulated through actions like killing

 

The benefits of ruchok, for deceased beings:

1)      Powerful purification

2)      Lessening of karma for next life (for example, if they are in bardo)

3)      A good rebirth

4)      Generation of continuous good karma

5)      Generation of continuous merits, with the body

 

Tsem Rinpoche invites everyone to submit their hair/nails for the ruchok ritual. You can also submit for your family, friends and loved ones, and even for your pets. This will be very powerful healing and blessings for our pets and their future lives. The hair and nails can be from people who are alive or deceased.


How to send items for the Ruchok ritual and Vajrayogini stupa

Please send only hair from the head and fingernails (not toenails). For animals, the hair can be from their head or body.

Please note that the hair/nails of each person/pet should be packed individually into separate bags (something like a Ziplock bag is good), and labelled clearly with the name of the person. i.e. don’t put 10 people’s items into the same bag, but pack them into 10 separate bags. Please also state if the “owner” is human or a dog/cat etc.

Apart from sending nails or hair of yourself and family/friends/pets, you can also send other personal items pix, clothes, precious items, jewellery, photos, heirlooms etc. for insertion into the Vajrayogini stupa.

However, only hair / nails / ashes will be used for the ruchok ritual. If the person is already deceased and it is not possible to get nails/hair, then a picture or a piece of their clothing is also fine. This, and all other precious items will be placed into the Vajrayogini stupa as an offering, which will generate great merit and blessings for the person.

    Ruchok is a ceremony during which tremendous amounts of karma will be purified and, through the power of the Buddha. Its a meritorious ceremony to bless the person, for deceased beings and even animal as well. Wow it is blessed with a positive rebirth in their future lives too. But its more importantly, the blessing creates a connection for one to receive the sacred practice of Vajrayogini. We are indeed very fortunate having the Vajrayogini stupa at Kechara Forest Retreat, we could circumambulate, gaining vast of merits and get connected to the Buddhas into the future. Its simply amazing getting blessings from this powerful ritual.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

  2. Samfoonheei on Oct 28, 2016 at 4:43 pm

    Very clear and good explanation of these powerful Rucok ritual.
    Wow….we can even send items ..nails and hair for the Ruchok ritual and Vajrayogini stupa which will benefits living beings as well as deceased.This will be very powerful healing and blessing.We are so fortunate to have a Vajrayogini stupa in Kechara Forest Retreat as we can circumambulate to gain merits and get connected closer to the Buddhas into the future. It helps us to purify a lot of negative karmas, to generate merit to support our spiritual journey.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful teachings.

  3. Jason on Oct 28, 2016 at 2:26 am

    Ruchok ritual is really benefits to those beings are living or deceased(who offered their precious items to be put in vajrayogini stupa). We are so lucky and blessed to have a Vajrayogini stupa in Kechara Forest Retreat. I still remembered Rinpoche said that we should visit holy sites like Vajrayogini stupa to trigger our previous life imprint in order for us to practice dharma consistently.
    I do advice people to circumambulation Vajrayogini stupa to gain merits and connection to Vajrayogini trantra practices which will bring us to enlighten in singer lifetime.
    Thanks Rinpoche fir sharing such a wonderful and informative write up.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It is very fortunate for us to have this opportunity to get blessings from this powerful ritual. Rinpoche always tried many different ways for us to make connection with this supreme mother , Vajrayogini. As Rinpoche always said, her practice is the best anyone can get at this age. It is the most suitable and powerful and certainly sacred practice. I pray to be able to get her practice from Rinpoche.

    Humbly,
    Chris Chong

  5. Edwin Tan on Apr 19, 2014 at 9:23 am

    Thank you Rinpoche, for allowing us to place our hair and nails into such holy stupa and have the ruchok done for us. Thank you for lessening our negative karma through such ritual and allowing us to generate continuous merits.

  6. Wan Wai Meng on Mar 2, 2014 at 7:46 pm

    Ruchok can purify people’s karma and help us to collect tons of merits.

May all sentient beings will be blessed by the most powerful Lady Buddha in the universe!

  11. Graceleong on Jan 6, 2014 at 7:08 pm

    This will be the first Vajrayogini stupa in this region. We are indeed very blessed to have this opportunity to create strong affinity with Vajrayogini.Her practice is one of the best to help us out of samsara, to help us instead to be reborn in the Kechara Paradise ! Thank you dear Rinpoche !

    hi paris,

    may i know when will be the next ruchok ritual held??? thks.

  27. Joy on Jul 4, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us this knowledge on Ruchok. Now after anyone has passed… there is still another chance and a way to help them through this powerful VY blessing! How meritorious it is for the deceased that they can be in a stupa with holy precious Buddha and High Lama’s relics where daily there will be so many circumambulating.. even though they have passed on, daily they still generate such powerful purification and merits. Amazing… I wanna be in this stupa too… but for now I wanna help built this stupa 🙂

  28. Yoke Fui on Jul 1, 2012 at 7:20 am

    Every action of Rinpoche’s body , speech and mind is focused on how to benefit people. Even with those who have passed on and did not have the opportunity to receive direct teachings or walk on the path, Rinpoche thinks of the stupa project to bless and leave positive imprints on them.

    On Wesak Day 2012, Rinpoche gave another awakening call to all of us. He taught on how to be a true Buddhist , Christian or practitioner of other faiths. After which, he announced the stupa project of KFR. H.E.’s students are working hard to carry out this vision. Do contact us at retreat@kechara.com, if you wish to be a part of this exciting project.

  29. Ratna Ta on Jun 26, 2012 at 2:03 pm

    Dear Jamie

    I am interested in Buddhistm and been learning a lot from Tsem Blog and YouTube. I have a question, if I want to sent my personal item (hair and nail) Do I must have initiation into either Yamantaka or Vajrayogini tantras

    How about if I send my family member hair and nail, they are not Buddhist?

  30. Daniel on Jun 10, 2012 at 11:24 am

    Is it too late to send in items for this?

  31. ECheah on May 19, 2012 at 1:12 am

    How lucky we are and such great fortune to be connected to Vajrayogini through our Guru. How else will we ever get the chance? Thank you for your kindness Rinpoche and benefitting us and so many beings through every action. Rinpoche’s help and care for us totally outweighs everything we have ever done for the Three Jewels. How can we ever finish repaying?

  32. KYC on May 19, 2012 at 12:40 am

    I’ve always wanted to do something for family members who are not in the Dharma. Through this Ruchok ritual, I hope to help them collect some merits and purify their negative karma.

  34. Yee Mun on May 15, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us about Ruchok and its benefits. Rinpoche is very kind and compassionate. Always think of ways to help the living being and deceased. Will spread the news and hopefully many people will benefits from this.

  35. grace (KSJC) on May 14, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the Kindness to do the powerful Ruchok Ritual to purify our negative karma and helping us in generating merits for our sprituality path.It do really give us a chance to share with family member and friends, especially who have passed away so that they can have connection with Varja Yogini.how fortunate we are to have this rare opportunity ….don’t miss it..

  36. tenzin llhamo on May 12, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    We are really fortunate that we have Rinpoche to do Ruchok here and now. We don’t need to invite someone from far away just to do this. How can anyone miss this GREAT opportunity? I am going to send my family’s fingernails for the powerful ritual!

  37. Uncle Eddie on May 11, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    This a millionth of a chance to help us to purify a lot of our negative karma to generate merit to support our spiritual journey and wordly endeavours and to create a very profound connection to the Buddhas into the future. Like Paris said, Rinpoche is so extremely kind to offer us the chance to just submit our items of which he will do for all participants’ behalf the rituals. To our Rinpoche, his compassion is Universial, and, irrespective be it an animal or human, like a Buddha, he is the most noblest and compassionate of all! Thanks a million Rinpoche.

  38. Lim Han Nee on May 11, 2012 at 12:36 am

    Thank you, Jamie, for this clear and detailed explanation of the Ruchok ritual and blessing. Here is yet another example of Rinpoche’s great love and care for us and our loved ones, both alive and departed.

    The Ruchok brings such an abundance of benefits to the blessed items placed in the stupa- collection of merits, purification of negative karma, good rebirth and connection with the Buddhas into future lifetimes as long as the stupa endures! These benefits continue to flow as people prostrate, circumambulate, pray and make offerings before the stupa.

  39. Li Kheng on May 10, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    Wow, how lucky we are to get this close to the divine Goddess – Vajrayogini.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for giving us this precious gift. Thanks to Paris for making all the arrangements of handling various “body parts” from all over the world. May many people realize the pricelessness of this opportunity.

    I remember Rinpoche told the story about the first time Rinpoche laid eyes on Vajrayogini: how precious such a moment was because, traditionally, the very chance just to lay eyes of Her is most sacred and rare. Today, due to the kindness and generosity of Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, we get to see the beautiful form of Vajrayogini as well as have the opportuntiy to put parts of us into Her stupa.

  40. Andrew Chiam on May 10, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    The Power of Ruchok
    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing on Ruchok. Another new learning today on the meaning and benefits of Ruchok.
    It was really a very simple yet powerful way of generating continuous merits and purification for all sentients beings.
    This opportunity is hard to come by, and must not be miss. Thanks.

  41. Ksjc Leu Chong Hin on May 9, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Thanks for Rinpoche article posted, very interesting topic. After read it, I feel fortunate to able doing something or helping people we love. Thanks.

    Thank you Rinpoche for always tirelessly taking care of all sentient beings,
    May many more people gain benefits from Kechara and Rinpoche’s teachings.

  43. JP Lim on May 9, 2012 at 8:36 pm

    Really touched by Rinpoche generousity and at the same time feel guilty with own selfishness. This is one area that I need to work on day and night.

  45. yenpin on May 9, 2012 at 12:41 am

  46. Erickksiow on May 8, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Thanks to Rinpoche for giving us a chance to gain Merits for our beloved in a lifetimes and lifetimes.

    Thanks again to Rinpoche for your kindness..!!

    Best Regards : Erickksiow

  47. MayOng on May 8, 2012 at 11:02 am

    We are very blessed to be connected to Tsem Rinpoche in so many ways, whether directly or indirectly. The talk Rinpoche gave on Wesak Day about Taking Refuge was a reminder for us to do better and push beyond our limits. Many people who listened to the talk was moved.

    Rinpoche was so kind to offer us the Ruchok blessing of our nails and hair to benefit us on our spiritual journey and be connected to Vajrayogini. Let us pay him back in kind by working hard on the building of these stupas to make it happen.

  48. tfreon on May 8, 2012 at 3:15 am

    Rinpoche always very compassion and full of wisdom.
    By building Stupas and through Ruchok prayer, Rinpoche is trying to save as much people as possible. To helps us in increasing our merits, plant Dharma seeds or to create imprint for people.

    Thank you Rinpoche

  49. su an on May 8, 2012 at 1:37 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us so many chances and ways to be connected to Dharma. How many of us (Malaysians) would have the opportunity to be involved in or actually build a stupa from planning to completion? This is a very rare and meritorious chance indeed. Now Rinpoche out of great compassion is inviting not just Kecharians, but everyone from the public who may not have even heard of Kechara before to submit their personal items to put into the stupa, so they can get blessings, even for those who are no longer with us. He knows we need all the blessings we can get now because (like what David recalled from the 5 May 2012 Wesak Day teaching) many of us would not practice Dharma sincerely in this life.

    Thank you Jamie for further highlighting the kindness of Rinpoche. This can’t be highlighted in bright pink neon lights enough!

  50. Yvonne on May 8, 2012 at 12:28 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the article to us, What is Ruchok and how is Ruchok can benefit us, especial Vajrayogini‘s Stupa.

    Ruchok can purification, continuous merit, lessening of karma for next life, have a good rebirth and continuous good karma, and many more , now the Ruchok will put in Vajrayogini stupa!! that mean power + power=mean very powerful !!!!

    I very much look forward to KFR, for retreat, butter lamp, Vajrayogini stupa, Gompa and many many more.

    Thank you Rinpoche

  51. Paul Yap on May 7, 2012 at 8:33 pm

    Finally we have the opportunity to build a stupa here in Malaysia at Kechara Forest Retreat. Many people, animals and beings surrounding this area will be benefited greatly.

    Stupa will blessed the surrounding area, bring a sense of peace and calm down all disturbances. We should get all our family and friends’s hair or finger nails and put inside this stupa.

  52. gary foo on May 7, 2012 at 1:19 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for your compassion in blessing us with the opportunity to participate in the Ruchok. For so many of us, attachments are strong and the break this bonds require much effort and discipline or else we fall back into the trap again. Rinpoche is helping us by giving us a little boost of purification and merit generation by participating in Ruchok. I am glad to meet Rinpoche in this lifetime and hope to do so in future lifetimes. The wesak day talk was also a great reminder on the meaning of refuge taking being the only first step, there is a lot more to go and yours truly here am guilty of inconsistent practice, nevertheless i shall practice as instructed by rinpoche on guru yoga, migstema, om arapa cha dhih, dhih only and serkym daily. With folded hands, thank you Rinpoche

  53. skyong on May 6, 2012 at 11:56 pm

    How kind of Rinpoche for allowing us to be blessed thru the power Ruchok ritual. The merits gained would allow our Dharma practicing grows. Also thanks Jamie for the easy to understand writeup. 🙂

  54. lewkwanleng on May 6, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    It is such a rare chance! Don’t miss this!!

    Thank you Rinpoche and the team who work wo hard to make this available to everyone!!

  55. Siong Woan on May 6, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Those who are aware of this golden opportunity of being blessed this way must have done something extremely meritorious in their previous lives. I thanked my previous reincarnations to create the karma for me to ‘harvest’ the benefit in this life…

    Also dont forget to repay the kindness of our Guru for being with us here and now!

  56. kenny wong on May 6, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    Isn’t it so wonderful that rinpoche has made this available for everyone to participate. Thank you rinpoche for allowing us and those who are not around anymore to collect merits for themselves to do so.

  57. Helena Chin on May 6, 2012 at 5:38 pm

    Thank you very much for the clear explanation of Ruchok Rinpoche.
    How compassionate is our Lama to do this for us just because of our laziness on our spiritual paths. sometimes i feel a shame that our Lama always think of way to help us to gain more merits yet we do so little. Is time for all of us to be serious on our spiritual practice. Thank you very much Rinpoche with ll my heart.

    With folded hand,
    Helena

  58. Victor Phang on May 6, 2012 at 3:52 pm

    Thank you very much Rinpoche for doing so many things for us and our family members to purify our negative karma, collect merits and generate positive imprint with the Buddha.
    Sincerely confess all of my wrongdoings and I will hold my refuge’s vows strongly to stop creating more bad karma from now onward then I can fully utilize my energy and time to focus on doing things that can benefit others which eventually transform me to be a better person.
    Take good care and thanks Jamie for coordinating the items collection 🙂
    With love,
    VP

  59. Angelshooi on May 6, 2012 at 2:31 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing with us the power of RUCHOK and creating a course for us to collect merits and dedicate to our love ones. Through Rinpoche’s kindness and compassion, we have a chance to repay back the kindness of our deceased parents through the powerful Ruchok.

    I can’t wait for the time to come and be involved in this project, to purify my karma and dedicate towards people who visit KFR in the near future.

  60. Sharon Saw on May 6, 2012 at 10:07 am

    i was thinking how compassionate Rinpoche is to do this ruchok ritual for those who cannot or will not change themselves for the better but then it is exactly Rinpoche’s compassion that drives Rinpoche everyday in Rinpoche’s every single endeavour – to find one way or another to help everyone. That is the Bodhisattva that Rinpoche is. And that is what Kechara is about. What the Kechara Forest Retreat (http://retreat.kechara.com) is about and ultimately what Kechara World Peace Centre is about. May i swiftly transform and become of greater help to Rinpoche in Rinpoche’s compassionate work.

    With folded hands,

    Today is Wesak Day here in Malaysia and Rinpoche gave a wonderful talk on Choices we make and about Stupas. The teaching on Choices was a powerful teaching for use to self-examine what really makes us happy and where should we place our priorities in life. Then Rinpoche went on to talk about Stupas and he plans to perform Ruchok consecration on the hairs and nails donated by the public so they can be placed within the Stupa.

    What striked me most during his explanations of why he wants to do Ruchok. He said he was doing this because majority of people would not practice Dharma sincerely. Hence, he is performing the ritual so that he can help people purify their negative karma and help them to collect a little bit of merit for their future lives.

    Thank you Jamie for the detailed explanation on Rucok and its benefits.

    May many who have the karma to be connected with Rinpoche & KFR to have their negative causes purified and may they collect continuous merits through the Stupas to be constructed at KFR.

      It’s really extremely rare for us to even be able to meet with and heart of such a ritual. This isn’t just another puja that can be done by the public. Being permitted to do this ritual requires initiation, extensive practice, daily commitments and completion of retreats – which of course, not just everyone can achieve. Rinpoche offering us this opportunity to partake in this ritual is a very precious opportunity because of what it creates for the receiver as well as for just how rare it is.

      Rinpoche is being extremely kind to us, to offer us the chance to just submit our items for the ritual, which he will do on our behalf – expecting absolutely nothing back and getting nothing back from us.

      Please don’t think that this is just another blessing. It is something extremely powerful. The items we give are regenerated as Vajrayogini herself – so we can imagine the merit that is generated by that! Be a part of it, not just by giving your items, but also by contributing, donating towards and being a part of building the actual stupa – that doubles the benefit and merit so much more. (more details about the stupa here: http://blog.tsemtulku.com/?p=30852)

      I wish to add also that students of Rinpoche have also been further trained to prepare for and assist in this ritual by highly qualified monks from Gaden Monastery, so that we are able to perform the ritual in exactly the same way as the Sangha have for hundreds of years. (This doesn’t mean the students do the ritual, but because there are several components and aspects to the ceremony, which require extensive preparations beforehand and assistance during the ritual).

      Before the ritual is done, the Lama also has to do extensive preparation himself, including Vajrayogini practices. So, there is a lot that Rinpoche himself will personally have to prepare and do for this ritual, which he is doing purely for the benefit of people everywhere, now and for their future lives.

    Thank you for your kind sharing and reminder for the essentials of drinking water. We commonly hear the advice to drink eight glasses of water a day, to ensure that we are getting enough water to maintain an healthy lifestyle and not for thirst.

    Most healthy people can stay hydrated by drinking water and other fluids whenever they feel thirsty. For some people eight glasses a day might be enough, while others might need more.

    China has a long history in an ancient civilisation dated back to 4,000 BCE. A country filled with many beautiful mountains, highlands, ranges, hills, plains and so forth. Mount Wutai, known Wutaishan is one of them and is a sacred Buddhist site in Shanxi Province. It is one of the four great sacred Buddhist mountains of China as well as a World Heritage Site. A place worth visiting as it is rich in Buddhist culture and has a lot of spectacular natural scenery. With an altitude of 3061.1 m, amazingly gorgeous scenery Mount Wutai as the only one Bodhimanda of both Chinese and Tibetan Buddhism in the world. It has many historic valuable religious sites to admire which is associated with Manjushri a very special place in the more than 1,000 years of Buddhist and Chinese history. Manjushri embodies the perfect wisdom of the universe. China is considered to be the Land of Manjushri where the people are blessed with intelligence. It is also a wonderful place to see the sunrise in the morning from this location. Reading this article remind me of my pilgrimage trip with Kechara.
    Interesting read. It would be easy for anyone going on pilgrimage to see the beauty and sacred place of the Land of Manjushri
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Adeline for this detailed article.

    Beautiful Shanti Stupa in Pokhara being the first World Peace Pagoda in Nepal . It is a massive Buddhist Stupa with relics of the Buddha, having an immense role to beautify the Pokhara valley. It is situated at Lumbini, the birth place of Lord Buddha. It is a perfect pilgrimage place for some and holiday place to tourist where it provides a clear view of the Himalayan range. The hilltop location also provides a splendid view of sunrise and sunset. Pokhara Peace Stupa is popular with locals, pilgrims and tourists from all over the world. Looking at the beautiful pictures paints a thousand words. Merely looking at the beautiful Shanti Stupa is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    The Buddha Statue of Hyderabad is a monolith located in India. It is the world’s tallest monolith of Gautama Buddha, erected on Gibraltar Rock in the middle of Hussain Sagar Hussain Sagar Lake, located in the heart of Hyderabad. Absolutely amazing, architecture carved by 200 sculptors which took them about two years to complete. The statue was chiseled out from a white granite rock. The man behind the iconic monolithic statue is other than the famous sculptor and Indian architect Sattanatha Muthaiya Ganapathi Sthapathi. A magnificent view for one to see at night.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing with beautiful pictures

    Thank you for the advice and the sharing. Practicing the Dharma is the best, and not practicing is the worst. Prayer is rooted in the belief that there is a power greater than oneself that can influence one’s life.

    It is very true we must be prepared for our death prior for me to know the Buddha teaching. Dharma is not about just trying to improve oneself. The Dharma is really working for other beings.

    Big statues are such a blessing merely by looking at it. Buddha sculptures serve as visual imagery intended to narrate the various aspects of the Buddha’s life and lessons. Having a Buddha statues in Gompa helps students to accumulate inconceivable merit, to create the cause of enlightenment for oneself and for other sentient beings. Looking at those pictures , all those involved in this no a easy project tells us more. Rejoice. With the guidance of Rinpoche , all goes well to where it is as today. We are indeed very fortunate to have Rinpoche bringing Tibetan Buddhism in Malaysia. For-most having these incredible statues at Gompa and at Kechara Forest Retreat.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer. In Buddhism, practicing generosity is to help train the mind in a way conducive to attaining enlightenment. Giving serves as a way to eliminate one’s greed and ill-will and expecting nothing in return. By giving away what is valuable, we reduce attachment by letting them go So wonderful of CK Liew giving a gift and card to Rinpoche , with love.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing that beautiful gift and card of CK Liew.

    Life is all about growing and developing. We learn through training given by our teachers. Nor matter how hard the training takes is for our own good. Training instils loyalty and commitment , challenges where we learn new skill , knowledge, information for the betterment of this life alone. Those incredible training given by our teacher will shape us , transform us in away to improve self- esteem, motivation, and confidence. Training in the Dharma is teaching us how to leave our samsaric trap and transforming us to be a better person.. At the end of the day it will last us for our whole life and in spiritual terms for lifetimes. Any failures we don’t blame our teacher, its ourselves to blame. Through hardship, patience , we learn. Have a strong will powerful, accept and through determination ,self-belief and hard work, we will get through to where our goal is.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this precious teachings.

    Inspiring reading this beautiful post were there is a lot to learn. Let’s face it. No matter who we are, at some point, we will feel insulted by the remarks of others. Silence is the best solution. The only way to accept an insult is to ignore it. If we do feel like there’s any truth in the insult, make the decision to only take the information that’s helpful to our growth. Then, ignore the rest. Keep calm and control the anger in ourselves. Its our choice whether or not to take it, laugh it off and keep it moving. Quickly forgive and move on.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Buddha, born with the name Siddhartha Gautama, was a teacher, philosopher and spiritual leader who is considered the founder of Buddhism. Born as a prince , gave up everything to become a monk . Saw the outside palace for the first time. Met an old man, a sick person, a corpse being carried to cremation, and a monk in meditation beneath a tree. He had a traumatic encounter with suffering and pain life made him decided to leave behind a Palace life to comprehend the nature of sufferings. Wonderful video to watch.

    Thank you Joy for this sharing of Rinpoche with us . Through reading this post we have a better understanding of Rinpoche. Inspecting the cleanliness of altar and the surrounding of homes is more or unless teachings or training us . With the right motivation and attitude, when we invoke daily doing our sadhana, it becomes easy to collect merits an offering to the Buddhas. Rinpoche extended all the way out, teaching the Dharma as well as seeing students living conditions and welfare. We are so fortunate to have Rinpoche as our teacher who cares more than Rinpoche himself.
    Thank you Rinpoche , may Rinpoche have a swift return , continue turning the wheel of Dharma.

Earthlings is a American documentary film about humanity’s use of other animals as pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and for scientific research. There is a strong and insightful message in this documentary film which took SIX years to make. Not an easy task after all but managed to obtain through hidden camera. More people will be aware of those sufferings of those kill for the human greed exploitation of animals. It also shed light the truth the very truth of the sufferings of those innocent been exploited. Interesting read and great video to watch.

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.

    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

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.

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

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - 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! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
