    Good job KSK! The KSK team are always so hardworking in helping the ‘clients’ curb the hunger.. As if being homeless isn’t bad enough, these clients also need to worry about their next meal. Rinpoche is so kind to start KSK to feed the needy. Rinpoche knows how it feels like to be homeless and hungry and Rinpoche doesn’t wish anyone to go through what He went through.
    Thank you The Star for the story! May KSK grow to be internationally known so that the whole world can help with this wonderful project and hopefully we can create an awareness and get many more people to help not only the Malaysian clients, clients from all over the world as well..
    May all needy clients sleep warmly and comfortably with a filled stomach..

    Thank you, Rinpoche!

    The Star Newspaper has become the most popular English newspaper in Malaysia. They have a strong force of very good staff that also helps Companies or Societies who do charitable work and helps them to promote awareness to the public. And then also influence the people to do the same. The Star (Metro) has help Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) to advertise what KSK is doing in helping the
    homeless and making people who read the newspaper to be aware. And at the same when people come to KSK to pack and distribute food to the homeless will also get the opportunity to know about Rinpoche.

    i really think that kechara soup kitchen department is a great manifestation, thank you guruji and all of the participants. It is here not only to serve those who need help on the streets but also to get those who come and help closer to dharma practice/teachings, coz sometimes it is really difficult to get people to listen to dharma teachings alone, but KSK serves as a bridge to unlock the compassion within as well as bring them one step closer to more serious dharma practice. Dharma teaching leads to dharma practice, dharma practice relates to dharma teachings, wow, genius!

    contribution to the society, since I am working k l and my hometown is at penang. I will travel back almost every fortnight to meet my family. So for the weekend that I didn’t go home, Saturday night and Sunday evening would be a lonely day for me. But will ksk activities, it fill up my time with
    I come to know kechara soup kitchen from the ‘red tomato’ weekly free Chinese magazine.
    I start to join the activities on april 2010, I found that this is a good chance for me to practise my meaningful contribution towards the society.
    I am not really a religion person, but I find that what the ksk treat the homeless people is a great and tremendous activity. For those who commit to the ksk, what I can say is” Thank You”, from the inner heart of mine,because of you , I am sure the ‘Love’ of mankind would be continue forever .
    I sincerely feel that ‘Love’ is one of the inspiration that keep us to continue our miserable life journey.
    With love, homeless people will feel that they still has not forgotten by the society, they are still part of the beautiful world.
    I would like to thank to Tsem Tulku Rinpoche that set up this ksk.
    Lastly I do hope that myself can continue to serve the society thru ksk.
    Cheers,
    Pang Sing Hooi

    KECHARA SOUP KITCHEN
    This is my family’s most favourite dept in Kechara ! We have been volunteering for a few months now with KSK and we truly look forward to this family activity every saturday night . It was pretty “frightening” initially but eventually it set on us and got us really addicted . The scenes of the homeless and the poor that we witness every week is REAL ! They are the actual streets in our very on Kuala Lumpur ! We speak to these unfortunate people , we try to relieve their hunger and most importantly, we try to earn some trusts to get them off the streets !
    Just doing this activity has made many changes to all of us in the family , in similar and different ways. For my husband CK , there is so much more calmness in him . Matthew who is 12 is more street wise and loves to share his experiences with his class mates and friends(who would actually listen attentively ! ) For Melissa who is 16 , her inner compassion and wisdom traits blossomed . For myself , I am so thankful to all these homeless , as , they have become my “heroes” ! They have taught me so much ! If only they know how grateful I feel towards them for “enlightening” so many real values in our lives . God bless them always !
    I really want to encourage all the parents out there to bring their children to join us in these activities . KSK is an extemely dedicated soup kitchen . The President , Ruby and her team (Julia , Justin , Kor etc etc ) are such dedicated beings. They always ensure that the homeless are “taken care” to the best of our abilities . Plus, the volunteers too , are “taken care” of – “educated” on the rules and regulations on approaching the homeless . They are constantly thinking of ways to “benefit” both parties (homeless and volunteers !!) God bless them too !!

    Thanks to star paper for being caring paper not just a money making organization. BUT also a big hug , thank you and congrats to Madam Ruby Khong , Justin and KSK team and KSK volunteers. KSK is such an important and timely organization. Through KSK not just the homeless people gets to benefits , everyone else will learn of their plight and in return will be able to join in and lend a helping hand.
    KSK truly has made a difference by helping this needy people. Most of us will never know how it felt to be in their shoes but thats not an excuse to not care and help the homeless. Atleast we can do is offer them some food and shelther and later more and more help just like what KSK is doing. I really like KSK and their work. To Ruby and Justin they are both really loving individual with a big big heart. I have spoken to Ruby recently with her achievement in life yet she is so humble and very friendly. And to Justin ever so ready to help and get down and “dirty”.
    Well done Guys !

    KSK is certainly dharma in action, It’s the epitome of compassion. The way to develop compassion is thru doing it. KSK provides the safe avenue for us to practise compassion in a structured manner. We just have to be there in person with the motivation to help. To me it’s like compassion made easy -with NGO setup, food contribution taken care of, what to do, where to go all taken care of by KSK team. We go in a team arrange by project director Justin so it’s very safe. It does save a lot of trouble if we were to do it all by ourselves. Kudos to KSK pioneers, committee members for the hardwork for the initial setups & formulating this entire project. Rinpoche definitely has his skillful means in helping us generate compassion 🙂
    The Star write up adds a lot of credibility and awareness to the public of KSK’s mission. What a big milestone from a humble beginning of a selfless act.

  8. Huck on Jul 9, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    Congratulations KSK for making the headlines so frequently. Many people have come to know about the name “Kechara” through KSK and through its works which the man in the street can readily identify and emphatise with. In addition to feeding the poor, which is of course admirable, what I find most inspiring is how KSK has helped many of these homeless people start anew with a second chance – after having slipped a step in life. Also congrats Ruby Khong, as I have also seen you featured in the papers as being amongst the most generous philantrophists in Malaysia – which says a lot to the contrary of what many may believe Buddshism as being “passive”.

  9. Anila on Jul 9, 2010 at 9:44 am

    Out of Rinpoche 12 Depts, Kechara Soup Kitchen or KSK is the most active in raising funds for Kechara House Organization. I must commend Ruby Khong the President and Justin cheah for working so hard and also media to promote Kechara House and Tsem Rinpoche. KSK started with a few people bringing a few packets of food to the homeless and today KSK is distributing 700 packets of food out. Very soon KSK will have own building in Imbi Road where food will be cooked. From what I heard. The homeless will have hot food instead of the dried stuff and bread which is sponsored by people and there is not enough to go round.

  10. Uncle Eddie on Jul 9, 2010 at 4:13 am

    Come Saturday and Sunday every week, one will see 40 to 50 of KECHARA SOUP KICTHEN ( KSK ) volunteers including myself, going round to distribute packs of vegetarian wet and dry food in areas like JALAN PUDU LAMA, CHOW KIT, PETALING STREET, MASJID JAMEK, JALAN KLANG LAMA, BRICKFIELDS, right up to section 14 of PETALING JAYA to homeless and URBAN POOR PEOPLE ( THE FORGOTTEN FACES OF KL ).
    From registration count, about 1200 people have registered with KSK and this estimate could have been much more higher if not for many who do not want to be registered because they do not want their relatives, family members and friends to know of their plight. Most of them who are down and totally out are jobless, old and cannot afford to pay bills, rentals or even the purchase of food necessities. Many have no home to go back to and places to sleep, but have to make do at benches at bus stand, under bridges and 5 footways , or at any available places where there is a shelter.
    KSK is the “ brainchild “ of Spiritual Guru, HE Tsem Tulku Rinpoche.
    Every weekend, KSK will give out about 850 packets of wet and dry foodstuffs containing biscuits, sweets, cake, fruit, bread, mineral water, together with a box of vegetarian rice ( sometime fried ) or noodles.
    KSK was established sometime in 2006 with the primary aim of feeding and providing basic medical care for the homeless and URBAN POOR of KUALA LUMPUR. Of course the ultimate objective would be to get the homeless and urban poor of the street by getting them jobs, or putting old ones into homes to help them get back their “ dignity “
    KSK now acquired a building in the city centre of KL, which will form a permanent base for KSK OPERATIONAL and FOOD DISTRIBUTION needs. KSK, it seems, hope to start up training REHABITULATION program to help the homeless re-enter society, thus reducing the numbers off the street.

  11. mayy on Jul 9, 2010 at 3:48 am

    It is heartening to know that Star is giving so much publicity for a noble cause. I am involved in the KSK rounds and know what it is like during those rounds and the feeling of distributing food to the poor and homeless. Having lived quite a sheltered life I was truly shocked during my first round to see so many homeless sleeping on the streets of Kuala Lumpur. They made up of different races and age ranges from early teens to the seventies. Some of them looked healthy enough and some looked prosperous enough to be taking handouts from a charitable organization. But then again who are we to judge whom to give and whom not to give. Soon a system was set up to register the deserving ones and system seems to be working quite well. It was indeed an eye opener to actually experience giving food to elderly people in their seventies and make us think how does one get to be in that situation. Without been judgmental, we try to explore the situation leading to that and were often told of family problems. Being involved in KSK activities has opened our eyes and mind to the realities of life and how we must express gratitude for what we have and to have compassion and love for the less fortunate.

  12. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 9, 2010 at 12:35 am

    I am waiting in anticipation for the next phase of KSK when they have their new building . Rinpoche strategizes of having many more KSK centers dotted all over the KL landscape to serve the homeless in those particular areas. Its hard enough to be homeless and you have to travel from one side of the town to another side of the town, it all seems not very practical. The excitement about the building is due to the additional services that KSK can provide on top of the current services, like counseling, shelter for the night etc. I hope KSK can really make a dent in the statistics of homeless people in KL, to reduce it significantly and to help them find dignity and a way back towards social integration.

  13. weeliang on Jul 9, 2010 at 12:27 am

    I feel very happy that KSK is receiving so much good publicity. KSK committee members and volunteers have brought much relief to the homeless all over KL. At the same time, KSK has also given many a chance to look at life on the streets. I have been going to the KSK rounds regularly recently and I find giving food to the homeless and having a short chat with them brings fulfillment to me. They are often very negative and depressed and I try to have very light hearted conversations with them and it puts a smile on our faces. That is a great feeling. It is also a great feeling when KSK gets some of the homeless of the streets by getting them jobs. Hats off to you Ruby!! 🙂

    Brilliant comments stated above by everyone, very deep, especially that from Jean Mei & Shirley – couldn’t agree more. Most people judge from the outside, only a few take the time to seek what’s within this outer covering. Many of us are disgusted by what we see – pleasant or unpleasant, it is subjective, but we live through labeling others.
    Upon seeing a homeless, what is the first thought that strikes your mind? For most of you, I know it would be the same or at the very least relatively similar to my thoughts – drugs, alcohol, theft, dangerous, self-inflicted etc etc, the list of negative words goes on. But that was before I joined KSK. Having since been humbled by the opportunity to be a volunteer at KSK, I have gotten to understand their background, their hopelessness, their loss in dignity, their loss in opportunities, their problems, needs and most of all, their hunger. Like ourselves, they crave what we all need – love, attention, kindness, respect, a home.. but because of circumstances, they have no other option but to live on the streets. Contrary to what many of us would think, they show appreciation and gratitude upon knowing that there is an organisation out there like KSK to help them, to nurture them and give them the opportunities they’ve missed and lost. The smiles on their faces upon seeing our cars drive up to them, you can’t get there anywhere else. It is a smile filled with gratitude and appreciation, a smile that hides their sufferings. It is heart-wrenching to learn some of their stories, the tears of anguish that stream down their cheeks when relating stories to us, and their happiness in being able to talk to someone who cares. The experience you get is just of a different level. KSK’s rounds and talking to clients who we are so accustomed to spending some time with is something I look forward to on a weekly basis. Week in week out, they eagerly wait for us to come, rain or shine, and we make sure we go to them.
    Well done to the KSK team, in building such a strong foundation, to promote, raise awareness, and care for the needy. Amazing amazing amazing job done to perfection.

    KSK is getting popular now a day as we can see almost every single month or 2 KSK will be on the national paper. The Star has been very supportive and with their help we will be able to create the awareness across the country much faster. I have been volunteering in KSK for about 1 year plus and was one of the pioneer joining the Saturday midnight round. This is also my first volunteering work in Kechara. Volunteering in KSK really make me practice selflessness. How I relate it? From the 1st step of the activity packing the dry food you should have to be very careful in stuffing the food in the plastic bag and when we tie the knot should make it easy to untied. Then when we transfer the food to the car we will carry it carefully too as we must always remember that those food are to be delivered in a good and presentable condition. After that everyone will hop in to the care and start our journey. Everyone at this time will start look around for the homeless and when we pass the food to them we will observe their condition such as whether there are injured, sick, clothing, and so on. This point actually we trying to see whether they need any other additional help beside foods. In short, volunteering or doing KSK, you really let go yourself for that period of time and your focus is just on the stranger that you might not feel pleasant with. But whether he/she pleasant or not is still goes back to your own projection. Caring and consistency is so much to do in this dept. for growth. I thank to Justin for nurturing me all these while and the committee who work so hard to make KSK up this level. I know KSK will keep move fwd and this is definitely a platform for people out there to contribute to the society and practice compassion.

  16. Judy on Jul 8, 2010 at 4:54 pm

    Thanks to Star Publications for highlighting KSK’s activities constantly. It will be great if the Star Publications will continue to support KSK as their way of giving back to society.
    It has been said “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime”. We are glad KSK’s work is not limited to just feeding the hungry and the homeless, rather they have been able to act as a bridge between the homeless and potential employers by helping them to get back on their feet and gain employment. If that’s not enough, Justin even help the homeless in applying for replacement Identity Cards and reuniting them with their families! KSK under Ruby’s leadership and the good work of Justin and its volunteers are really remarkable. We are really proud of their achievement and good work!

  17. Pasquale2k on Jul 8, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    I still remember few years back in one of the Rinpoche teachings, where Rinpoche talks about his young time, he sleeps in the street, beg for food, from there onwards, Rinpoche vision to have a department manifest out to distributed food to homeless people in the street, there’s how KSK born.
    Back to my memories, I still remember KSK was started up with few people, that time KSK gathering point was at the KP Outlet at Piccolo Galleria, few of us pack the food and start running around the street at Jalan Ah Loh area. Now, KSK has grown so big and well known by people around Malaysia even to the World.
    I must say thank you Rinpoche for giving us a chance to see how outside world is, I admit that I always complaining about my living, after joining KSK, follow them to distribute food to homeless people, listen to their story, I stop complaining about my living, as I understand that, outside still got a lot of people where they don’t have home, family and always struggle for hunger and sometime even get bitten up by people, I should cherish and appreciate what I have now and help more people who need help and living in bad condition.

  18. fang on Jul 8, 2010 at 1:52 pm

    In a world so filled with discrimination, limitations and boundaries; it is refreshing to find that there is an organization out there proving to people that there is NO barrier of sorts when it comes to helping those in need. KSK is doing a fantastic job at promoting selflessness, compassion and care – bringing back hope to those who once upon a time, had them. If anyone had taken the time to head out on a Saturday night/Sunday evening with KSK on their route, you would know how much KSK’s presence have made a difference in the life of the homeless. It doesn’t take much to help provide a little comfort and put a smile on the faces of those very grateful aunties and uncles. My heart goes out to them. Thank you KSK and Rinpoche – you are indeed Buddha-sent.

  19. martin on Jul 8, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    My experience with KSK is only weeks old. This is what i felt during my first visit. I was drawn to the sincerity of the people in KSK, i was surprised to feel a real and clear atmosphere of joy that pervaded the room as preparation took place, i was amazed at the “robotic” ability of Justin at remembering names,i was touched by the words of the motivational prayer that opened my eyes to the simple fact that i already posses the empowerment to do good if i chose to, I was blown away at the sight of the President of KSK sweeping the floor (in Vogue style of cos)…and that was even before the crew left the premises. The “dirty mad looking people” that we usually cross the road to avoid suddenly “became” real human beings. I thought it could so easily have been me there – i was convinced that most of the homelss have made much less mistakes than i have done over the years.
    KSK may seem like a mere activity, but it embodies the very philosophy of goodness and compassion that Rinpoche so often speaks of…it changes one’s perspetive totally (it should and must)…and in performing the activity with the right thought (made so easy because i have met so many tutors and friends at KSK) the beautiful and powerful seed of Dharma is planted. Spirituality begins.
    Who has benefitted the most? I have. I started to heal and i continue to learn and gain the knowledge i need to heal.
    I thank Tsem Tulku Rincpoche, Ruby, Justin, Su Ming and everyone i have ever met at KSK for this healing.
    Sincerely, Thank You

  20. Albert on Jul 8, 2010 at 3:24 am

    YES!!! KECHARA SOUP KITCHEN IS ON PAPER AGAIN!!!
    As for the aid to help the poor, we need to be in media all the time to get more awareness and help in either financial or physical.
    HUNGER KNOWS NO BARRIERs!!!!
    What does the above word mean?
    Kechara is a Buddhist organization, normally people who step into Kechara is either they seek for spiritual guidance or wish to learn about the prayer. But when come to Hunger, regardless of what race we are or what religion we are, when we are hungry, we need food. Therefore we establish Kechara Soup Kitchen to feed the poor, not only that, we actually try to help them and bring them back to this society world.
    I still remember 2 years back, KSK only distribute around 300 – 400 pack of food per week, but now it has increased to 800 pack of food per week, I’m happy to see that is because KSK is helping more and more people in Malaysia, but when come to think of it, I feel sad, real sad, reason is because there are so many homeless in just Klang Valley alone, and there are much more that we haven’t discovered yet.
    KSK is a great department, I wish one day Malaysia will be homeless-less.

  21. Deborah on Jul 7, 2010 at 3:23 pm

    I have great respect for the KSK team, especially Justin Cheah.
    Not many can do what they do. I for one have not but it does inspire me to start and hopefully soon.
    There are a lot of us out there who want to help but just can’t give ourselves the extra push to do so for various reasons, be it pride, fear, laziness, apathy or just putting off for another day . But the more we see of KSK’s selfless acts, I believe it will only be a matter of time when we start to walk the talk as well.

  24. May Ong on Jul 6, 2010 at 5:00 pm

    Homeless people exist anywhere globally. I have been on KSK rounds in the heart of Kuala Lumpur on Saturdays and Sundays. Following Justin around, we searched for these homeless in the most unexpected places we would not think of looking normally when our car passes by. Most of these homeless people have been left on their own to fend for themselves on the streets without protection from weather or robbers sleeping on cold hard cement pavements without hot meals most of the time.
    Some may be sick and could not pay for hospital bills. Some may be ageing and old and cannot work. Some may have been abandoned by their family members or suffers from Alzheimer disease and forgotten their way home.
    Who would pity them, feed and clothe them? Thanks to The Star to highlight the needs of homeless people offline and online to increase public awareness of the good work KSK does!

  25. Jace Chong on Jul 6, 2010 at 12:59 pm

    Kechara Soup Kitchen is gaining more and more popularity, thanks to all the media especially The Star, which is putting “double horse power” to promote this wonderful social works.
    Being a regular volunteer for the midnight rounds, what really keep me doing is we can really get them off the street!! It’s not only we pack the food, we give them the food and full stop. Like what Jean Mei said, from the food we gain the bond.
    I feel great when I see some of the homeless refused to talk to us when we first met, but after that, they came to us and start telling us about he / she not feeling very good, can we help, and talk more about themselves when we visit them every week. This shows that they trust us, we light up their hopes.
    Justin has been doing very excellent job that literally get them off the street and start a new life. I suggest Justin to train more people to do the same thing as more people can contribute in these meaningful works.
    For me, most of the homeless is homeless because their mind does not want to change. If we live our own live, doing things for our own, struggle everything for self-cherishing, is there any different between us and the homeless?? No, it’s the same just that we are a bit lucky in a better condition but innerly we are living same as the homeless.
    Open up yourself, think of other people more, don’t always think that YOU are important, this world is not just about YOU. Your view will change immediately and all the “hassle” in your life is actually nothing.
    I am not saying that we see homeless and compare the life, so we feel luckier. No, when we think of others, we don’t only focus on our own, so we won’t magnify our problems and it leads to a happier state of mind.

  26. Sandy Clarke on Jul 6, 2010 at 5:19 am

    The great Thich Naht Hanh uses a phrase, I think it’s “engaging Buddhism”, and KSK certainly falls into this category.
    It’s fantastic to see such pleasant and encouraging media coverage on such a worthwhile cause. So often it seems like the world is full of negative news with no hope of any light at the end of the tunnel, but here is a fabulous example that there exists caring people within caring organisations who work trememdously hard in order to help those who have fallen on unfortuntae circumstances.
    The work and effort that comes from KSK is driven purely by compassion and the desire to offer assistance to those who need it most. Not only does it provide for the Homeless of KL, but the work of KSK also provides a harrowing education of what life is like on the other side for so many people, and it gives us the realisation that we should always be grateful for what we have, instead of always looking for more, and we should appreciate the efforts of our parents, our teachers and the countless others who have helped to keep us from falling into such unfortunate circumstances.
    Fantastic work guys. And kudos to The Star for disproving the myth – it would seem good news does sell!
    Kind regards,
    Sandy

  27. Beng Kooi on Jul 6, 2010 at 3:03 am

    The local media has indeed been very supportive of KSK, and brings into the forefront their on-going efforts and successes to help the homeless of Kuala Lumpur off the streets, for the past 3 years.
    Those who disparage and criticise KSK’s efforts should get off their high horses and consider the following:
    Have you seen for yourself the conditions under which the homeless live? Have you ever been on a KSK food distribution round?
    I have. I got acquainted with a young man who had AIDS – he disappeared before we could find some sponsorship for his treatment. I saw gratitude in the eyes of an old lady, who had been abandoned by her family and children. I went to the Pudu market by night, and saw an old man digging through the garbage dump collecting chicken heads in a plastic bag for his nightly meal.
    PLEASE PUT YOURSELF IN THEIR SHOES.
    What would you do if you lost your IC and didnt have enough to pay for a replacement? How would you get a job?
    What would you do if your family had abandoned you and you had no place to go?
    What would you do if you had a prison record but you were truly repentant? Without anyone to back up you, how would you make a living?
    What would you do if your wore your only set of clothing every day, how would you wash, and be clean enough to impress a potential employer?
    Solving problems such as these and much more, is what KSK does day-in, day-out. They give food, hope, shelter and care. What have YOU done?

  28. Pavara and Jutika on Jul 5, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    I like giving food to homeless people because I feel like they need it. Me and KSK’s family’s job is to get the homeless off the streets. Every week we can meet and talk to them about their problems. How I started was one day I saw people giving packets of food to the homeless then my mum went and asked what they were doing that is when I helped to pack food every sunday after manjushri kid’s class. and then me and my family go and distribute the packets of food to the homeless. I think that many people should do it too because the homeless people need food more than we do. I will try to ask more people to join. My brother Pavara likes to give to the homeless people because they also need the food more than us.

    Yes, Star has been very helpful to KSK for all these years. Also because of that KSK found many sponsors and volunteers. People called and said they wanted to help after reading the articles. Many things may not had happened without Star.
    Weeks ago I talked to this guy who is one of the KSK regular clients who was in his 50s. He always look angry. He always find fault and complained about something on the food we gave him, on the time we came etc. But that day he was quiet. I said to him, “I hope u like the food today!” and he looked at me and said, “I want to leave like a normal man, I want to get married and I want to have a family.” His eyes were filled with tears. Being single with no other family members and getting old are the usual syndromes for becoming a homeless. No one chose to be on the street, begging for food, being dirty and smelly. KSK volunteers chose to be their friends. Being a volunteers for years in KSK, KSK helped me found myself by putting down my pride, my problems, my anger and just serve.
    Friends, stop thinking about things that you don’t have. Start thinking about things that you can give. Join KSK now!!

    KSK is the first step of spiritual journey for many people who have been searching for meaning of life or a good avenue to serve others. They are sincere, down-to-earth people who’s sole purpose of joining our food distribution rounds is to benefit others. They are dependable and helpful without hidden agenda. We enjoy working with them, it warms my heart that they are actually so many people who care for fellow human beings. Many volunteers came from the same family, children bring their parents, parents bring their young children, brothers and sisters, you name it! To them this is the best way of spending Saturday nights and Sunday evenings with their loved ones. Want dose of charitable bonding time ? check this out http://www.kechara.com/ksk
    and we hope to see you real soon.

    Yes David, KSK IS a Buddhist organisation BUT feeds ANYONE who is hungry regardless of race, religion and creed hence our motto “Hunger Knows No Barriers”. When Rinpoche first told us to feed the homeless, his words were “make sure the food is halal. feed anyone who is hungry. do not discriminate. if you xray the stomach of a hungry person, it doesn’t show if this person is chinese, hindu, christian, male or female. it just shows a hungry stomach”. How apt and beautiful which i proudly report that till today, we still hold by this advice strongly. And have also now become a full vegetarian soup kitchen!

    Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) is what active compassion is all about. KSK walks their talk in helping the homeless and urban poor. They actually go out to the streets rain, shine or thunderstorm at the appointed time to bring food to the homeless week after week, year after year consistently. The trust gained in KSK enabled the homeless to feel comfortable sharing their problems with KSK and thereby opening up avenues for KSK to help them . Distributing food is therefore a skilful means to get connected to the homeless. Granted there are people who take advantage of KSK’s help but there are also many who have benefited from KSK’s activities. The effect of KSK is not only limited to directly benefiting the homeless in Malaysia. Publicity on its noble activities through its website has inspired other groups of people around the world to emulate its activities and thereby bringing relieve to many more homeless people around the world. The ripple effect of KSK’s noble activities is indeed far reaching. Congratulations to Ruby and team for bringing KSK to its current level!

    When Rinpoche was a teenager in the USA, he experienced hunger and homelessness. Motivated to help those less fortunate, he started KSK in 2006.
    Ruby, a long time devoted student of Rinpoche, took this project and under Rinpoche’s guidance ,brought it to where it is today – 800 packs of food given out each week and a building right in the heart of the city to be used as its head quater.
    Our pure motivation touched the heart of a Star executive and since then KSK has been given its fair share of media coverage by Star. Thank you, Star.
    For those who just criticize in the comfort of your home, please take part in one of the KSK’s (http://www.kechara.com/?cat=634) weekly food distributions before you judge.

  34. Girlie on Jul 4, 2010 at 11:37 am

    Kudos, KSK! Your entire team has done so much for the homeless people in Klang Valley and now this good deed is starting to “rub off” – there is a small team of friends in Penang who follows in your footsteps with weekly distribution of food to the homeless. A vision from one person has grown to touch the lives of so many.
    I am reminded of when I was young; how I was brought up by a kind family, who gave me everything that I needed …. they sent me to school and looked after my needs until I started working. I will always remember them.

  35. Han on Jul 4, 2010 at 3:40 am

    KSK grows tremendously!what i like about KSK is
    “KSK’s goal is TO GET HOMELESS OFF THE STREETS which is why the upcoming new building in Jalan Barat is for.”
    Lead by a powerful and sincere president Ruby Khong, KSK has its own bulding in Jalan Berat.
    Rinpoche’s vision to help others has been carried out continuously by Ruby Khong and her dedicated team,eg Justin Cheah,Project Director of KSK, Justin has been working very hard in helping to place some homeless in jobs and he is doing a wonderful job!

    Unconditional Giving is practiced by Ruby and her team, an act which is most admirable.
    I have been on these food giving missions a couple of times with Justin and not only are packets of food given, Justin spends time talking to the homeless and gives care and compassion to their plight.
    Feeding the Hunger of homeless is not the only thing that KSK does but also feeding of humane emotional needs.
    Thank you KSK for what you are doing the unending efforts to raise funds to continue this great and admirable task.

  37. JP on Jul 4, 2010 at 2:19 am

    The Star has been very supportive of Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK). Without the media, it is very difficult for a non-profit organisation like KSK to create awareness and garner so much support from the public. What’s most important is for the poor to be helped and given another opportunity to be back on their feet.
    Many people are always very judgmental and critical of non-profit organizations. I’ve been serving in charitable causes for the past 9 years in Malaysia and no matter what the cause is, we’re always criticized by the general public. Because of their own judgments, they stop themselves from supporting the beneficiaries. At the end of the day, the beneficiaries receive less support and more time and energy are needed from existing staff and volunteers.
    Thank you The Star!

  38. Li Kim on Jul 4, 2010 at 1:50 am

    Recently Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) has become the latest “media darling”. There have been many write ups about what their doing and the invaluable cause of feeding the homeless. In this most recent article we read about the deeper purpose of getting the homeless off the streets with job opportunities and placements into shelters.
    The wonders and success of KSK comes from the tenacity of one amazing woman – Ruby Khong. Let me tell all of you about this precious gem… When I first met Ruby in 2009, my first impression was, “Wah, this woman quite straightforward to a point of offensive…” I kept my distance on the wrong view that she was arrogant… I was so wrong!
    Ruby never fails to be well groomed and full of energy, even when she’s sick! Her hair is NEVER undone. One would think that a woman so well put together is untouchable. NO WAY! Ruby is truly a wonderful and very dynamic woman. She’s capable and shows results. And boy, does she work hard. I often wonder where she finds the time to keep her pair perfect, nails manicured, beautifully dressed AND get so much done for KSK and other departments of Kechara.
    Being with Ruby makes me joyful and full of admiration. She’s truly Dharma in Action and a Hero to many homeless. Ruby Khong is beautiful inside and outside.

    Kechara Soup Kitchen is fantastic . It is Rinpoche’s passion to feed the poor. He cannot stand the sight of the hungry and poor. Wherever Rinpoche goes and when he sees any poor in the street he will surely buy food to feed them. Rinpoche cannot stand the sight of others suffering; he is ingained spontaneously with universal responsibility to liberate others from suffering, hence on the temporal level, he tries to eradicate suffering in hunger thus Kechara Soup Kitchen was born from his compassion to alleviate suffering in the community. We are only Rinpoche’s arm and leg to carry out his work in Kechara Soup Kitchen.

  40. Joy Kam on Jul 3, 2010 at 11:41 pm

    Dreams really do come true. From nothing to something so beneficial. Yes Rinpoche had this vision that he would like to have a soup kitchen for the homeless. It is a way to give back to society, to help remember how lucky we all are and to allow us the previllage to practice true generosity and compassion because No matter who you are, at the end of the day you still need to eat!
    Hence I love their Motto: Hunger knows NO Barriers!
    This one department in Kechara that has nothing to do with religion but rather the practice of a kind, compassionate heart to all living beings. Yes like what Jean Mei and Justin said I would strongly advice anyone to at least go for 1 route with the KSK crew and experience it for yourselves! It can be quite addictive too. Once you start giving, you just can’t stop. Just call Justin Cheah from KSK!

  41. PGdiamond on Jul 3, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    Very well said, Jean Mei. There are a lot of critics who doesn’t do anything yet make remarks that what KSK does is wrong, especially providing food to the drug addicts and drunkards. Some commented that if the homeless have money to buy drugs or some cheap alcohol, we shouldn’t provide them with food.
    They maybe a drug addict or a drunkard, but they still need food. It’s always very touching to see the homeless quickly opening up the packet of food to eat once they received it. When we go back after the food distribution, to the comfort of our own home, washed, showered and cleaned and we lie down on our comfortable beds those homeless will still be out in the streets……

  42. Margaret on Jul 3, 2010 at 10:17 pm

    One of Rinpoche’s core project in kechara, started distributing 20 packets of food a weekend in 2006 to now over 800 packets of food per weekend. Amazing! So many homeless receive the benefits!!!
    Thanks to Rinpoche’s long time student, Ruby Khong, who brought so much awareness of KSK to the public. And also thanks to the hard working core team, especially Justin Cheah, who works tirelessly to help the poor and homeless to get back on their feet.
    Our Guru’s vision coupled with the hard working committee is yet another successful example that shows how a small thought can become a big impact to the society and bring forth so much benefits to the needy. This is real Dharma! Real Guru devotion!

    Last year, I volunteered to distribute food for KSK and on one of the rounds I met a young Chinese man with whom I struck up a conversation. His name was Jonas. He was HIV positive and had been homeless for some time, sleeping by the doorway of an apartment building in Kuala Lumpur. He was suffering from a type of cancer and even showed me the signs of his illness. He told me he was receiving treatment from a Government hospital and showed me his appointment letters. I met him only two or three times. The last time we met, he told me he wanted to commit suicide. I felt very sad and also very helpless. In my mind I thought about taking him to an Aids organisation so that he could get counselling. Then he asked me whether I had anything for him to read because he couldn’t sleep. All I had was a copy of the KSK guidelines and a photo of Lama Tsongkhapa. I gave them to him. In the weeks that followed I looked for him. But I never saw him again.
    There are many people like Jonas out there and people like Uncle Cheong and Sumathi. Please help KSK to help them.

  44. Lim Tat Ming on Jul 3, 2010 at 9:52 pm

    A big thank you to the Star Metro for a well written article.
    Had we not get involved with KSK, we would not have realized the amount of time and resources required to manage the entire operation of KSK are huge.
    The operation includes getting the food and drinks ready, coordinating the packing and distribution, allocating the team leaders and volunteers, assigning the routes to be taken, managing the stock of food items, liaising with the kind sponsors, balancing the accounts, maintaining the database of volunteers and clients, maintaining the stock of food items, liaising with the authorities, providing medical assistance to the clients, assisting the clients to get jobs, providing counseling to the clients, training the volunteers, cleaning the packing area, fund-raising, awareness campaigns, to name a few.
    These are just some of the things KSK team does very well every day until the end of homelessness.
    THANK YOU KSK!
    THANK YOU sponsors and volunteers!
    Everyone can help make a difference to the lives of the homeless.
    Just GET INVOLVED (http://www.kechara.com/soup-kitchen/get-involved/) with KSK in the following areas:

    Yes, it may not be right for one to just give food to the homeless and leave it like that! Then, it will encourage them to remain on the street. But one should also look deeper into the motivation behind the giver who is doing it.
    I totally agree with Jean Mei & Sharon, given a choice, no one wished to be downtrodden. It is due to the lack of care in our society that is not giving these homeless a chance to turn over a new leaf of life.
    I remember clearly one night in 2006 when H.E. Tsem Rinpoche shared with us during an impromptu dharma talk how Rinpoche endured the difficulties in Rinpoche’s quest to learn and practice dharma. Rinpoche’s adoptive parents were not supportive of Ripoche’s dream and had always been against it.
    Rinpoche ran away from home at a young age in pursue of Rinpoche’s wish to learn dharma and had endured difficulties in Rinpoche’s journey to LA where Rinpoche met Geshe Tsultrim Gyaltsen.
    Rinpoche had always given food and help the homeless wherever Rinpoche went. In fact this started while Rinpoche was staying in the monastery.
    Now, Rinpoche’s vision to help others has been carried out continuously by Rinpoche’s dedicated students, when KSK place someone in a job, there’s 1 less person on the street.
    Justin Cheah, Project Director of KSK, has been working very hard in helping to place KSK’s clients in jobs and he is doing a great job!
    Kudos to KSK and its volunteers for all their effort in helping the homeless. Everyone deserves a chance for a better life.

    The President of KSK, Ruby Khong http://www.kechara.com/about/our-team/whos-who/ruby-khong/ and her dedicated team http://www.kechara.com/soup-kitchen/about-us/our-team/ works extremely hard and what I wish to point out is each and everyone of them are so sincere, working without any other motive. KSK started out with no name,..just a few people with a few bags of food going out each weekend looking for people who are hungry.
    I had the privilege to be one of the volunteers back then. It’s about helping alleviate someone’s hunger and thirst…but it’s never been just that as mentioned by dear Jean Mei, Justin and the others. Rinpoche’s focus has always been to teach us how to care, reach out to sincerely care for others on all levels…give others what they need starting with the most basic such as food.
    Ruby and her team trusted and believed and brought KSK to where it is right now. Hundreds and hundreds of people are being fed, have a new friend in KSK, are getting jobs, have hope…
    All the hard work behind the scenes are being done joyfully by the KSK team. If you are reading this blog, I urge you to consider joining in this amazing journey with KSK. You will not regret…only will experience so much happiness and satisfaction in helping others.
    Do watch this video of Rinpoche having a chat with the KSK volunteers before they go out on a round late one night.

  47. Andrew James Boon on Jul 3, 2010 at 7:15 pm

    WOW… Can I be even more proud of my Dharma brother and sisters/family now? Yes, from merely reading through the heartfelt comments with so much conviction. Though I have never been sceptical about what KSK has done and is doing, I will confess right here and now, I have never been to one of the rounds!
    Why you might ask? Well, to be honest I have been afraid to confront my fears on this matter and the hurt I may feel when I come face to face with such despair (which I actually also assume based on my own selfish and priviledged life).
    I want to be able to help KSK more. Giving money, sponsoring tables during dinners and empty words of encouragement is easy (not to put down those who do but merely stating what I myself have done!) I need to walk the talk, and in front of all of you today from the comfort of Thierry’s parents home in Belgium, I shall promise that I WILL go for a KSK round the weekend of my return to KL and SEE for myself compassion at work.
    Come on sceptics, I DARE YOU to come along too!!!!

  48. Su Ming on Jul 3, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    What I like about KSK is not just the function but the people behind the scene. The committee members and volunteers are extremely dedicated to their mission. They have put aside their personal time to volunteer in all aspect of KSK. Please watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YnxNXPN2to&feature=player_embedded.

  49. Shirley Tan on Jul 3, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    And this all stems from the kindness of the Guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. It is because Rinpoche himself went through living in the streets in the USA that Rinpoche created KSK in the first place. You can hear and watch all about it in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGG8lPt6Qk8 Rinpoche shared his own story here. Thank you.

  50. Shirley Tan on Jul 3, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    It is so heart warming to read all the comments, beginning from Jean Mei’s words. Those of us who have been with KSK and know how much work team KSK puts into working for the homeless and with the homeless have plenty of stories to share. And yes, they are real life stories, not some fiction or movie. Justin Cheah, Project Director of KSK works very hard over the weekday to nurture, help and support the homeless in so many different ways. Be it getting them ready for job interviews, driving them to job interviews, finding them the jobs in the first place, taking them to the hospitals, clinics, taking them to the welfare office and even taking them to the National Identification Registry Office. Ruby Khong, the President of KSK, works relentlessly to raise funds and awareness for KSK, about KSK. There are days on end that she literally does not sleep. I am not joking. I have witnessed all these myself. She motivates herself to go beyond because she knows she can change someone’s life and someone’s life is really depending on what she and her team do in KSK. The volunteers often say that going with KSK to feed the homeless is an eye-opening experience for them. Most of them are surprised that the homeless are so friendly, warm and hospitable towards them. Do you know why? Because team KSK has invested so much time and effort in building a trust worthy relationship with the homeless at the ground level since November 2006. The homeless have come to believe in KSK and the hope that KSK feeds them. It is really beyond giving out the packets of food, drinks and fruits. KSK has done all the hard work for us all, and as volunteers, we get the ‘feel good’ factor and experience. As of to date, KSK has helped more than 40 people from the streets to register and replace their Identity Cards so that they can finally be “legally recognised” in the country, and then begin to look for jobs.KSK has provided over 20 people living on the streets with Medical Aid. And some had to be sent to the local clinics and hospitals.
    KSK has helped over 25 people from the streets to be groomed for their interviews and got them jobs successfully. They are now all working happily in their new vocation. KSK has sent 3 people into their proper rehabilitation centers, and reunited 2 people with their families. And these statistics are increasing each week, as we speak.
    The state of being poor is not limited to just the physical aspects in life.
    It is not just about having no money, no food to eat, no shelter to call home and being denied of the very opportunity that allows us to live decently.
    It goes beyond the physical and tangible context.
    Many a times, it is not the poverty or even the hunger which destroys our will to survive.
    It is the loss of hope, that horrid sinking feeling that we have been forgotten, rejected, unwanted and left behind by the community that we belong to.
    When we lose hope, we will no longer fight to live on. Hence, we will allow ourselves to descend into sub-human living conditions. In the process, we become sub-humans as well.
    Life in the streets can de-humanise even the best of humanity, because the conditions in the streets are scarily challenging and very harsh. One may easily forget one’s sense and sensibilities in this perilous environment. When our so-called homes are back alleys, cardboard boxes and pavements of buildings, then we may begin to act and think like scavengers or sewer rats.
    No sane individuals would ever willingly choose to be living on the streets if they had access to better opportunities, or were given “second chances”. Unfortunately, for some, living off the streets may have become their way of life. These are the ones who have lost all hope and have resigned from life altogether.
    Therefore, poverty ravages beyond just the physical aspects.
    It kills the human spirit.
    This is what Kechara Soup Kitchen has come to learn and understand since they have started walking the streets to feed the poor and homeless in late 2006.
    HUNGER KNOWS NO BARRIERS BECAUSE KSK MADE SURE THAT THERE IS NO BARRIER AT ALL TO FEEDING AN EMPTY, HUNGRY STOMACH IN THE STREETS.

  51. Li Kheng on Jul 3, 2010 at 4:39 pm

    Powerful comment! Your statement is not simply based on judgement but on knowledge of what actually happens behind the scene as well as the long term results which, are the direct consequence of KSK’s kind act.
    KSK gives volunteers that opportunity to be in contribution, an empowering experience to move us away from selfishness that will create a better Malaysia in the long run. At the same time, KSK’s efforts are sustainable because the homeless rediscover belief and hope in themselves through the kindness and care from the volunteers. This belief gives them the strength to get back on their feet and accept job offers secured for them by KSK.
    Kindness to the homeless and constructive effort to re-build a life for them through jobs etc. will also contribute to reduce social problems for Malaysia.
    Jean Mei, you are also kind to invite the skeptics to participate in ONE round of distribution. I admire that you are practicing what the Dharma teaches you in your life. I hope they will accept your invitation and have the opportunity to be inspired.

  52. Girlie on Jul 3, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    If KSK does not provide the packets of food (rice, noodles, biscuits, bread, water) twice a week, these homeless folks would not have enough to fill their stomachs. I heard that KSK have also distributed t-shirts, towels and even umbrellas.
    -Girlie-

  53. Justin Cheah on Jul 3, 2010 at 1:48 pm

    That was brilliant, Jean Mei!
    Glad that you post this up! A lot of people doesn’t understand KSK’s true motive in giving food to the homeless and urban. Some of them feel that KSK is helping and encouraging them to stay on the streets which is not true. KSK’s goal is TO GET HOMELESS OFF THE STREETS which is why the upcoming new building in Jalan Barat is for.
    The packet of food that KSK have been consistently delivering them is a tool for us to get connected with them, so that we can talk to them and care for them. When we talk to them we form a friendship bond, and over time we gain valuable information such as their problems, what they went through, what difficulty they have and why are they still on the streets etc… because we have developed trust from them.
    From these information KSK is able to find a solution on how to help them with their problems long term such as recommending jobs for them, help them to get groomed first before going for the interview, fixing appointments with potential employers and as well as fetching them to the interview place.
    And when some who are not ready to be employed, we encourage them by talking to them more on making them think of their future. Encouragements such as “Don’t you want to make some money to go for nice meal?” or “don’t you want to make some money to get a room and sleep comfortably and not on the streets anymore?” has been given to the younger ones so that they can get back on to their lives.
    The volunteers who comes for Saturday and Sunday food distribution rounds are actually very important people because they are the ones who is going to be the first point of contact with the homeless.
    Come and join KSK food distribution rounds and be a part of this meaningful community work! It brings you happiness for you have changed someone’s life changed to good!

    Jean Mei – well said… everyone deserves compassion. I’m sure no one chooses to be downtrodden. When we were kids, no one ever says, when i grow up, I want to be homeless. Far from freeloaders (though of course there are some – but i’d rather make sure more are fed than letting people starve because of suspicion of freeloaders), there are even homeless people i have met who have told me they do not need food but they need a job. if people take time to talk the people on the streets, you will find they are just like you and me, just that they are in a bit of trouble.
    Visit http://www.kechara.com/ksk for success stories of people KSK has given gainful employment to and changed their lives – because someone cared enough.

  55. seonghuat on Jul 3, 2010 at 11:55 am

    Well said Jean Mei!
    KSK need volunteers to pack and distribute food, logistics, donations in kinds and money,etc.
    Now that KSK building is going to be ready soon, more volunteers are needed to wash, clean and cook food, etc.
    Please give some of your time back to society. Tell you friends!

  56. Jean Mei on Jul 3, 2010 at 10:01 am

    Hey, I’d just like to give my two-cents on another perspective that some readers hold:
    There are a lot of skeptics out there who think that what KSK does is wrong. That giving food weekly encourages the poor to remain on the streets. Some goes so far as think that KSK SHOULDN’T give food to drug and alcohol abusers.
    Besides those already inspired, the skeptics should take the initiative to go at least ONCE (1 in 365 days) to volunteer to experience how the homeless survive on the streets of KL, how they sleep on the streets and especially HOW THEY GOT TO WHERE THEY ARE.
    If one was to take a glance at the vast database that KSK has (which I had done since I volunteered to do data-entry), a lot of them are homeless because of they fall into the category of ‘old and unemployed’. How would you feel if your grandmother or grandfather were sleeping on the streets? To have to make up a bed of newspaper and wrap their feet with plastic bags to stop mosquitoes from biting their skin?
    If we are fortunate enough to be reading this post, it means that we were fortunate enough to have a computer or at least fortunate enough to gain access to the internet. Simply based on that reason we do not have the right to put the less fortunate down as not being entitled to ONE BAG OF FOOD (dry + wet) a week. Are we selfish enough to think that those who we feel don’t deserve our help is not even entitled to ONE bag of food a week?
    The bag of food passed out every week serves a HIGHER purpose. It is the “ticket” to winning the homeless and urban poor’s trust in order to help them in greater depth when able to. Just take a look at the ‘success stories’ of job placement, shelter placement and medical aid provided by KSK so far.
    The efforts shown by KSK so far can be summed up in two words: Good job.

  57. Sharon Saw on Jul 3, 2010 at 6:51 am

    KSK (http://www.kechara.com/ksk) is really doing a good job with committed volunteers. Inspired by Rinpoche, this community action group goes the extra mile by helping people to regain dignity in their lives. Please do join the rounds to experience direct interaction with the homeless and urban poor… the best thing is that anyone can participate and help others less fortunate than ourselves.

  58. David Lai on Jul 3, 2010 at 6:33 am

    Wow! Kechara Soup Kitchen is doing such wonderful work to promote Rinpoche’s works. It is growing by leaps and bounds. I love the fact that KSK is actually a Buddhist organisation as it demystify the myth that Buddhist only do meditation and chanting. Now all of us can get in touch with reality with a round of feeding the poor with KSK and practice compassion.

    KYY: You got it.
    C’mon guys – it’s not just about commenting about how nice it is to get media coverage and what a good job they’re doing. Let’s do it ourselves – get out on the streets, support KSK’s fundraising drives, volunteer at their events. We should make it grow by our own example and volunteering 🙂

  60. mima on Jul 2, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    Kechara cares and works very hard to help others in needs. I am so grateful for their constant efforts and amazing team work!

  61. mima on Jul 2, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    Kechara cares for so many and works so hard to help others in need. I am so grateful for Kechara’s effort and work and as Andrew said, I am too very pround of all of kechara crew and their fantastic attitude and team work!

  62. kyy on Jul 2, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    KSK become bigger and bigger. Now, every week they have distributing over 800 package of foods. Because of their hard work, the most populor local newspaper Star has reported KSK’s work time by time with consistency.
    This will create awareness for the society community to help those homeless who sleep in the street, dark corner, bus stop, old building etc. Those people need help and they also have hope in their life.
    So, please don’t for other, you yourself make a first step. Let’s do something for them!!!

  63. Andrew James Boon on Jul 2, 2010 at 4:48 pm

    How wonderful to keep getting such precious coverage and much needed awareness for KSK. Ruby and her team ROCKS!!!! Who else has always such beautiful hair and jewellery AND often in Chanel and heels that can pull this off…
    Truly an exemplifying icon of pure motivation! And who says one cant have your cake and eat it. Rinpoche has always thought us that to do Dharma doesnt mean we need to “give up”… its about mind transformation and acting from motivation!!!
    Am sooooo proud of my Dharma sisters and brothers of KSK!!!!
    Much love from Belgium… Andrew

  64. Ethan Chu on Jul 2, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    The Stars as a national paper has been very supportive of Kechara’s work. I am deeply touched that they truly care and also highlighted issues that the society should zoom into. This definitely will create more awareness and get more support from the people out there. Thankyou The Stars! Thankyou so much.

  65. raowenzen on Jul 2, 2010 at 10:27 am

    A popular song says something about Wishing upon a Star.My wish is that our Star newspaper will continue to highlight the humanitarian efforts of our Kechara organisation and mission of H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and make everyone realize there is no separation between spirituality and the worldly.

    What Mr. Yao does is very inspiring to the world. He is a famous and successful athlete which has alot of influential power. He ends up using them for good and to benefit society. It is very inspiring because he could have enjoyed his life quietly without the need for him to do so much work and raise so much awareness.

    He did it because he thinks it is the right thing to do and doing good deeds like these grants him, inner peace. In this materialistic world, everybody is focusing in and many people are emotionally depressed. That is the key reason for depression. Depression arises when we keep focusing in and everything is about us.

    I rejoice in Mr. Yao’s philanthropist work and he is really making a difference. Shark fin’s soup is one of the most popular items in Chinese cuisine. It is very hard to change the mindset of the Chinese to avoid this dish because of the cruelty that it creates from making the dish available. It is very inspiring to see someone that focuses out and manage to make a difference in the world.

    An impressive family who contributed most of the time for dharma. Nice to know about Dato Ruby Khong and her supportive teenagers children. Besides raising up her family her contribution towards dharma was more adorable. Her strength and her willingness
    to bring the Tibetan Buddhism to the nation was very lively.

    Her strong believe in dharma has motivated and inspired her children and today they have been honored to be a part of Kechara family. Thank you for sharing the beauty of dharma and their thoughtful gift

    First time coming across this accomplished yogi Mahasiddha Lawapa . Glad to know and learn a bit of knowledge of this Great Mahasiddha Lawapa who was a figure in Tibetan Buddhism who flourished in the 10th century. He was also known as Kambala and Kambalapada. Lawapa was the originator of the Dream Yoga sādhanā and it was from Lawapa that the mahasiddha Tilopa received the Dream Yoga practice lineage. Will try to understand more.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    Beautiful art piece of the 30th Sakya Trizin Sonam Rinchen paints a thousand words. Along side with Vajrayogini, Buddha Shakyamuni , Hevajra, Gonpo Tramsuk , Mahakala of the Doors and Sakya Dorje Shugden Tanag. Other than Sonam Rinchen, there were many other great Sakya throneholders who practised and proliferated Dorje Shugden Tanag as well.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing which allows us to have it printed .

    Before learning about Buddhism, I am worried if I will see a ghost because I don’t know what I should do and whether the ghost will harm me. In Buddhism belief, ghosts are also one of the sentient beings, they are like human, they have feelings and emotions too. However, they can be quite pitiful, they take rebirth as a ghost because of their attachment and they are stuck. Most of them are very lonely.

    If we ever see a ghost, we should remain calm and with compassion chant mantra for them, tell them to let go. Don’t ever try to communicate with the ghost because we don’t have the power to help them. We can always go and seek advice from a master if needed.

    Mount Wu Tai Shan in China is one of the abodes of Buddha Manjushri. It is believed that Buddha Manjushri lives here. There are many stories of him showing signs to people who have an affinity with him. To many great Buddhist masters and lay Buddhist practitioners, Mount Wu Tai Shan is a pilgrimage site one must visit.

Other amazing was the description of Lord Shiva, The Crystal Dome with Sun Trecking System at the roof top. A great structure of the Giant Shamukha.

    Do you believe in reincarnation? Buddhists believe that when we die, it is not the end of it, it is another beginning for us. When we die our consciousness will leave our body and will take rebirth in another form. We can take rebirth in 3 upper realms which include god, semi-god, human or we can take rebirth in 3 lower realms which include animal, ghost or hell. It is easier to end up in the 3 lower realms than to take rebirth in a human form again. While we are in the human form, we have to collect as much merit as possible and purify our karma.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and blog team for sharing with us this amazing Amitabha Buddha statue on the top of Vietnam. It is being placed in a very picturesque spot which made it look magic amidst the clouds. Vietnam is very fortunate to have this spiritual complex to be so close to the clouds.

    Buddha Amitabha is a very popular deity due to his simple practice with great results. His practice can be practiced by all kind of people from different social class and background. Even those who are illiterate can also practice and gain results as long as they do it well.

    This practice also gives them hope because it was said that if they are devoted to Buddha Amitabha and the practice, they will have a chance to ascend to his pure land which is Sukhavati. This gives those who are enduring a hard and difficult life to look forward to doing this practice and escape from their misery. That is why his practice is extremely popular.

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.

It says when the Buddha was born, all the gods, demigods and asura came to pay homage. Buddha proclaimed it will be his last rebirth in samsara.

  • 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.

I hope in my future life I can attend a school like this. Tsem Rinpoche

  • 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
