Dear friends,

The Lantern Festival, more widely known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, falls on the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar, with a full moon at night. During the Lantern Festival, children celebrate with processions of paper lanterns while the adults enjoy mooncakes with their friends and families.

In ancient times, the festival celebrated three fundamental concepts which are closely linked to one another:

  • Gathering, such as family and friends coming together, or harvesting crops for the festival. It is said the moon is the brightest and roundest on this day, an auspicious sign symbolising family reunion.
  • Thanksgiving, to give thanks for the harvest or for harmonious unions.
  • Praying or worshipping.

Traditions and myths surrounding the festival are formed around these three concepts. Although emphasis on the traditions has changed over time due to changes in technology, science, economy, culture and religion, the essence of focusing on well-being and togetherness has remained. Hence an important part of the festival celebration is moon worship. The ancient Chinese believed in rejuvenation and associated this with the moon and water.

There is an ancient fable that exists to explain the origins of this festival. As the story goes, the sun and the moon are a couple and the stars are their children. When the moon is pregnant, it becomes round and then becomes crescent-shaped after giving birth to a child. These beliefs made it popular among women to worship and give offerings to the moon on this evening. Offerings are also made to the well-known lunar deity, Chang’e who is the Moon Goddess of Immortality.

The lanterns used in ancient times were fairly simple, and only the emperor and nobility had large ornate ones. As times changed, modern day lanterns have become increasingly elaborate and embellished with many complex designs. In keeping with the times, these lanterns have even been upgraded with the use of battery candles instead of real candles.

Mooncakes are another hallmark and tradition of the Lantern Festival. The round shape of the mooncake represents completeness and reunion. It is common practice to share and enjoy round mooncakes with family members and friends during the week of the festival.

So as you can see, this festival is very popular for young and old alike. As a way to enshrine this tradition, some of our Kechara members recently organised a celebration to commemorate this festival. I commend the volunteer team who took time off their busy schedules to organise the Lantern Festival Charity Bazaar. I was especially happy to see the inclusion of underprivileged children in this festival. I thank my Kecharians for their kindness, for giving back to the community and for raising awareness of the importance of a harmonious and united society. I would also like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the many departments who sponsored and supported this event and made it a success.

September 3, 2016 was a memorable day as we witnessed the extent that some people would go to in order to benefit others. It was an event where teachers from Kechara’s Sunday Dharma School (KSDS), kind sponsors and members from all walks of life came together for a noble purpose – to give back to the community through the Lantern Festival Charity Bazaar. Many people put in valuable time, effort and energy into this event that brought the Kechara organisation, friends and families, the local community, orphanages, charity organisations and entertainers all under one roof. This event was open to the public and many responded positively.

This was the second event of 2016 presented by KSDS since the Art Exhibition held on Wesak Day in May. The core team for this event was Grace Tan, Asyley Chia and Jayce Goh who laboured for months to seek sponsorship, source for merchandise and oversee preparations. Like the saying “The value of sunrise is known to people who were in the darkness”, those who worked hard for the event enjoyed the fruits most and that was to see participants benefit from it.

Food @ The Bazaar

The Lantern Festival Charity Bazaar was held outside Kechara House at SunwayMas Commercial Centre in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. There were 43 stalls of goodies that were either subsidised or fully funded by local businesses and the community. In support of the charity event, they contributed a variety of goodies, ranging from sizzling local hawker food to branded children’s fashion gear. Besides having the kind sponsors, over 40 volunteers proactively offered their time to make the event a success.

Performances

The Lantern Festival Charity Bazaar was not just a charity bazaar but also an event designed to bring awareness to the less fortunate. As students of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and inspired by Rinpoche’s compassion for all sentient beings, KSDS reached out with sponsorship to the less fortunate from Yayasan Sunbeams Home, Single Mother Association, House of Joy Puchong, Tong Shin Senior Citizen Care Centre and Rumah Shalom.

The event attracted an estimated 600 people and proved to be a good platform to raise awareness amongst the public of the less fortunate and of the good work of Kechara. The team invited Yayasan Sunbeams Home to join in the fun and offered the Yayasan’s children a platform to showcase their talents with their stage performance that night. The event’s entertainment and performances were provided by Yayasan Sunbeams Home, Peekaboo Creative Academy, Hankidz and Bailamos dance team.

Fun-filled Activities

Despite the thunderstorm that hit at 5 o’clock in the evening, the event drew a huge crowd including walk-ins. Most were there to support a good cause while others were attracted by the great buys and good products on offer at the bazaar. It was truly an enjoyable night for both children and adults with live performances, delicious hot sizzling food, the lantern parade and the chance to be part of a larger meaningful activity.

The day after the event, the KSDS team and volunteer parents of KSDS students did not lax in the prevailing mood of benevolence. Together with KSK, the team delivered donated merchandise to homes in need. The team wanted to carry out Rinpoche’s mission of kindness and generosity towards the homeless and less fortunate. The donated merchandise included close to 100 5kg bags of rice, a few hundred packets of yellow dried noodles, cartons of vegetarian cup noodles, bread, cartons of mooncakes, cartons of soya bean milk, mineral water, biscuits, coffee and toys. The recipients of this distribution were:

  • Tong Shin Senior Citizen Care Centre in Kuala Lumpur that houses around 60 senior citizens including those with critical illnesses. Some of these old people have been abandoned by their families because they were unable to pay the hospital bills. They came to live in Tong Shin Senior Citizen Care Centre after the hospital contacted them to care for these abandoned old people.
  • House of Joy, a Christian centre in Puchong that is run by Lesley and the children. They have three homes in the Klang Valley area and one near Karak. In total, the four homes care for over 80 children and more than 20 senior citizens, including disabled folk.

  • Rumah Shalom in Puchong, run by Christian Pastor Arun who cares for a total of 40 orphans.

    Thank you to Pastor Adeline and all volunteers, organisations who could turn a cultural event to an event that focused on services and giving. Looking forward to more events from Kechara that are centered around being more conscious to the needs of the community.

  2. Pastor Antoinette on Nov 12, 2016 at 8:02 am

    Wow! This is a beautiful event with so many people coming together to bring happiness to those less fortunate. The many pictures tell how much fun everyone had. Many kind people have invested their time and resources for something meaningful. I rejoice very much for everyone.

    Thank you Rinpoche, Pastor Adeline, KSDS teachers and the many volunteers and sponsors for making this possible.

  3. Edwin Tan on Nov 10, 2016 at 1:30 pm

    Thank you Pastor Adeline for the wonderful write up of the happenings on Mid Autumn night.

    Tremendous great efforts by the teachers of KSDS and all the volunteers to make the event a successful one.

    It is always in these times of great meanings that we should be thinking of giving back to society. Usually when everyone is happily celebrating, there are many who are forgotten.. I am really happy to see how great people from Kechara give back to community by planning such a special event.

    All the food, fun, activities, and even give aways at the end of it for KSK runs.

    Truly momentous night for those who attended… thank you!

  4. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 9, 2016 at 3:02 pm

    In the Muhhibah style celebration of the Lantern Festival at Kechara House, tradition opens up to the lovely spirit of giving. On this occasion, the Mooncake and Lantern Festival, which had always been a cultural tradition of family reunions, was transformed into a charity bazaar, and the less fortunate were invited to share in the joy and excitement of the event. Children from the Yayasan Sunbeam Home were invited to participate in the evening’s fun performances as well as carry the lanterns around later that evening. The evening’s main attraction was the pure bliss of the food paradise of a bazaar, with hot delicious vegetarian food served by many stalls!

    On the same night , food from the bazaar was taken to be distributed to the homeless on Kechara Soup Kitchen’s food distribution round of Cahaya Suria. The next day, with the help of Kechara Soup Kitchen, the Kechara Sunday Dharma School teachers and volunteers went on a round of distribution of food supplies to various Homes for the disadvantaged.

    Kudos to Pastor Adeline and the teachers of the Kechara Sunday Dharma School (for kids) for their hard work, team spirit and initiative, planning so far ahead of time, to ensure the success of the Lantern Festival Charity bazaar.

  5. Joy Kam on Nov 9, 2016 at 4:13 am

    Beautiful to see Malaysians from all walks of life, young and old coming together in harmony to enjoy an ancient Chinese celebration. But what’s most important and wonderful is the how the team got together and made this a positive festival of giving back to the community!

    It goes to show that when we work together in harmony for a common goal, anything is possible. What more when the motivation is set right to bring happiness to others, it can only result into happiness in return. I see many exhausted looking faces but in the end satisfied, fulfilled and happy – a kind of happiness that reinforces positive energy of a caring compassionate conscientious attitude. And this positive light can be passed on to others, to a community, and then passed on to expand in a society, and then a whole nation and eventually the whole world. This is my visualisation of how kindness and compassion can expand. I am sure this is possible but it definitely has to start somewhere first, from a simple act, a simple gesture, a simple event… like this colourful lantern festival.

    So bravo and truly rejoice to the team and all those who made this a truly beautiful and meaningful Lantern or Mid-Autumn Festival!

  6. TekLee on Nov 9, 2016 at 1:29 am

    Thank you Rinpoche or sharing this article. Rejoice to the main organizers who get the whole event running smoothly. Rejoice to all the teachers of KSDS who make the whole event happened! This is indeed a very meaningful event. Despite moon cake festival is a Chinese traditional festival, the most memorable one is the smile on those children’s face. It’s so heart warming. Other than arranging the children from the orphanage to join the event, we could actually sponsor the coupons for the children to buy food in the event. The event even brought forward to the next day where Pastor Adeline, Justin and the parents deliver the food to the orphanage and some homes. This event had doubled the meaning and double the joy. Chinese festival is usually celebrate with family. But for those unfortunate one, we celebrate with them to make them feel warm and happy. To celebrate festival is indeed important, but to bring happiness to the unfortunate one, to put a smile on their face in this special festival, is indeed priceless. The feeling we got is indescribable. Thank you again Rinpoche for the article and most importantly, the festival 🙂 _/\_

    A very hearty congratulations to the Organising Committee of KSDS, volunteers, guests and helpers of all young and old for such a successful, happy and well-organised Lantern Festival of 2016 held at Kechara House. It was said to be indeed a very well enjoyable occassion for both children and aldults, which was supported by many walk-ins too, who have showed a good compassionate cause for the great buys of so many interesting products for charity. It was said to be a truly fun-filled charity of activities for one and all, who participated! This is indeed great team-work well done!

    Rejoice for all the volunteers and KSDS teacher who involved in this meaning event keep up the good work continue to host more event to the public in order to create awareness about Kechara .

    Kudos to the KSDS and volunteers for a job well done. It’s wonderful to see kids with happy faces.

    Lantern festival is very cultural. It’s not celebrated in a big way by families these days but usually observed just for the kids’ enjoyment. I remember that as kids, we looked forward every year to go to Petaling Street to choose our brand new lanterns made of colourful cellophane. We would light the candles after dinner and walk around the huge hospital compound in the dark, at the same time being very scared of our surroundings, as you know, the nurses tell you all kinds of stories about hospitals and night time. We used to live in the hospital as my mother was the Matron of the hospital. Those were the happiest times of my life and I recall them so vividly in my mind.

    I look back in time past with a kind of sadness. Nothing will bring them back, loved ones, youth, happy times, people, old house, garden, familiar faces faded into the distance. Nothing lasts.

  10. Justin Cheah on Nov 8, 2016 at 12:39 am

    This is a great event to be honest. Many were involved to do hold this event successfully. What i love the most is when they also cared for the less fortunates and homeless by extending the donated items to all who needed it. Great team work and effort! Kudos to all involved!

    As I reread this, I find that even though the suggested 10 points are seemingly different but the undertone is the same; specifically about dealing with social ills or unjust. The key is to reduce the “I” in all situation, thus, narrowing the divide and we will be able to see and feel what others are feeling. In turn, this leads to less judgement, less condescending, less self-imagery but more empathy and more acceptance. Speaking up with well research facts is certainly one of the best ways to deal with social ills and unjust situation.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and writing team for this article. I find Gandhi’s eventful life an interesting read. Never realised that his 21 years in South Africa set the foundation to Gandhi’s nationalist and activist reputation. The greatest achievement of Mahatma Ghandhi is gaining independence for India without violence. He pushed for swaraj (self-government) and peaceful transfer of power from the British colonial to the Indian congress. It was a success for mankind as Mahatma Gandhi achieved these before he was assassinated.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing with us all these beautiful statues around the world. It is not surprising that most of the large Buddha statues are Buddha statues. In Buddhism, we know the benefits of large Buddha statues and we appreciate large Buddha statues. A large Buddha statue is very beneficial to everyone and anything that is around that area.

    The larger the Buddha statue, the more beneficial it is to its surroundings. In history, large Buddha statues are erected to calm the land or to bless the environment and the beings around. Many Buddha statues are erected in places that are prone to natural disasters or accidents. An example will the Leshan Buddha which was intentionally created to calm the turbulent waters of the river in front of it.

    After the Buddha statue was completed, the waters of the river did become calmer and it is much safer for the boats that sail along the river. This is just one of the many benefits of large Buddha statues.

    Most of us are very afraid or scared if we see the ghosts because we don’t know what to expect. We are afraid that they might harm us or disturb us. However, Buddha Shakyamuni taught us not to be afraid of them because being born as a ghost or spirit, it is actually a great suffering. We should generate compassion for them.

    We take rebirth as a spirit or ghost due to our miserliness and anger. As a spirit, we will suffer from hunger, thirst, loneliness and tremendous cold and heat. We can also experience these when we are in human form, we should know how much pain it is to be in that state. Imagine if we have to live like this every day for hundreds or maybe thousands of years? Therefore, it is very important for us to cut the miserliness and also the anger.

    Shantideva was born a wealthy prince. However, he gave up material wealth to join the monastery to become a monk. He was an extraordinary scholar, monk and philosopher. He is considered as one of the 84 Mahasiddhas. When Shantideva was in the monastery, he was not liked as he was not seen studying nor participating in the curriculum. But later, his delivery of the teaching of “The Way of the Bodhisattva” had showed him to be very learned to the surprise of his detractors.

    Have you seen this unique depiction of Vajrayogini before? She is depicted with her holding her own severed head. This form of Vajrayogini is called Ucheyma. The practice of this form of Vajrayogini helps us to cut the root of our sufferings from the source, it is a lineage originated from the Panchen Lama. We are not allowed to do her practice or recite her mantra without the initiation. However, we can keep her image for us to create the cause to be able to receive her teaching in the future.

    We are very fortunate to be able to watch these precious video of Dorje Shugden taking trance when Rinpoche was in the monastery and hotel. That shows how close the relationship of Rinpoche with Dorje Shugden. Taking trance in Tibetan Buddhism is very different from what we normally see in the Taoism lineage. An oracle is a sangha member who are specially trained otherwise the holy beings are not able to enter the oracle. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this precious footage to all of us.

    Been a multi-racial country freedom of religion is enshrined in the Malaysian Constitution. Its not surprised to see so many beautiful Buddhist or Indian statues been built in Malaysia. Just in Malaysia we have six incredibly stunning Big Buddha Statues which is truly amazing. I have visited most of those Big statues except Wat Machimmaran, in Kelantan. Heard of the beauty of the “Sitting Buddha” which is the largest Buddha statue in a seated posture within South-East Asia. Wish I could visit this beautiful statue one day.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Great to know the many benefit of Shize’s practice. Shize is no other than Manjushri, emanating to specifically heal our sicknesses, clearing obstacles which enables us to gain realizations and to practice Dharma. Shize’s practice also helps us to calm disharmony situation down and to find peaceful resolutions where there is an argument . This practice has so much other benefits as well.
    Thank you Rinpoche and the writers team for this wonderful article. May it continue to benefit more and more people now and in future.

    Tengboche Monastery is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery of the Sherpa community in the Khumbu valley of eastern Nepal. Wow….It is the largest monasteries in Everest region located at an altitude of 3,867 metres (12,687 ft), As a leading Buddhist centre of spirituality and pilgrims in the Himalayan area, half way to Everest Base Camp trek, the monastery has become a house name to trekkers and climbers to Everest Base Camp. Combine that with the history , rich culture, and unspoilt traditions of the indigenous Himalayan mountain people has attracted thousands of visitors yearly there. With the colourful Mani Rimdu festival, which is a culmination of Buddhist celebrations with religious gathering, songs have attracted tourist as well to Tengboche Monastery every October. I do wish to visit this beautiful monastery with a rich history someday. Beautiful pictures shared and interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for constantly thinking about ways to let us collect more merits in a short amount of time. Rinpoche is so kind to have placed numerous 9ft outdoor Buddha statues around Kechara Forest Retreat for us to circumambulate daily and collect merits. On top of that, Rinpoche also made mantra stones which can be invited from Naropa’s Cave to offer up to their favourite Buddha and placed them around or near the Buddha statue in Kechara Forest Retreat.

    When more people offer mantra stones around a particular Buddha statue, when we circumambulate, it will be more effective. Why? Because each mantra stone represents the Buddha himself because the mantra is the manifestation of Buddha in the sound form. Hence, if the mantra stones are piling up around the statue and we go and circumambulate around the statue, it will be very powerful.

    The whole place will be very powerful and we can get tons of merits and the person who offered the mantra stone will get tons of merits too! This is just one of the many ways that Rinpoche constantly coming up for us to earn merits in a short but effective way. Thank you, Rinpoche for kindness and compassion.

    Freda Bedi was the first Western woman who took ordination in Tibetan Buddhism. She was ordained by the 16th Karmapa in Sikkim. She was quite involved in the Tibetan community when the Tibetans first arrived in India in 1959. At that time, Nehru had asked her to help the Tibetans and she was in charge of the Social Welfare Board.

    Why is it important to read the biography of a high lama? Many high lamas have faced downfalls, plots, hatred and backstabbing in their lives. How they deal with them are inspiring and it gives us hopes. We can learn from them how to still be kind and compassionate even though we may be hurt.

    Did you know there is a beautiful forest recreational park in Bukit Tinggi, Bentong called Lentang Forest Recreational Park? There are many tall old trees and scattered boulders in this forest reserve, it even has a look for the Jurassic Park in its more isolated areas. It is a very popular recreational choice for visitors on weekends.

    It is so important to support sangha members. Without them we would not have the opportunity to learn dharma and it continue to degenerate. Sangha members are the one who focus full time into dharma and making sure to spread and benefit all sentient beings. Therefore, we should appreciate their kind effort and support them.

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.

Respected lamas of any devoted students will have two stupas for their remains. One stupa inside the ladrang of the lama and one stupa outside for the public to worship and do kora. By keeping the remains of the lama\'s previous lives in stupas, and making offerings, generates the merits for the current incarnation and future incarnations of the lama to be able to do more dharma work to benefit others. 

Here is a beautiful indoor stupa to a lama in Tibet. It is up to the strength of the devotion of the students to create such stupas in respect and dedication of their lama\'s previous incarnation(s). TR

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them.

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    1 years 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

“Food is the only thing that I have been longing for” - a single mother of two who currently living in Kuala Lumpur city. She mentioned that getting surplus food is not a matter of ignorance but a matter of not being able to afford “fresh” food. This is because when it comes to distributing salary, there are things such as house rental and utility fees that have to come before food. With welfare reforms, benefits being cut and sanctions, this marginalised community find themselves looking for a way to get through another day. #Kechara #foodbank #urbanpoor - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
