The pictures below were taken by one of Kechara Soup Kitchen’s volunteers on their routine food distribution rounds.

At Chow Kit Road

At Dayabumi

This is an extract of a message that I recently received from Ruby Khong, the President of Kechara Soup Kitchen.

“No words can express my frustration after every distribution outing. It’s really very disturbing seeing so many people out in the cold. I feel so so helpless. The only comfort I have is knowing that 500 people will go to sleep tonight not hungry.

I am now back in the comfort of my home, about to take a nice warm shower while they are still out there in the cold with a flattened piece of cardboard as their mattress and a black garbage bag or newspaper as their blanket. The pavement is what they call home.

Good night, Rinpoche. May I never stray from the right path…and always have the resources needed to serve them.”

This is the reality of homelessness in downtown KL. Sad but true. Kechara Soup Kitchen or KSK (http://www.kechara.com/ksk) is doing a great job helping these people by giving food, making a connection with them, talking to them, understanding their problems and eventually helping them to reintegrate into society.

    We are so fortunate to have a place called HOME but not to those who are out there having no place to shelter them from sun and rain. To them staying under the bridge or pavement or corridor of shop during the night is call HOME to them. Its sad to see them in that condition, what we could do is only giving them warm foods for that night.
    Rinpoche’s own experience years back has him starting Kechara Soup Kitchen or KSK distributing foods to those homeless at least they would not be hungry at night. KSK also provides medical assistance ,help those homeless to get jobs and so forth. Thanks to Rinpoche’s efforts in starting KSK which is now distributing more food packages out in thousands. And more and more volunteers joining to help compare to those years since and many people benefited from it.
    Well done….“Hunger Knows No Barriers”

    The world that mankind has created is ironic. Everyone is literally born homeless so to speak. If you are fortunate enough to have parents or family to house you while growing up, then you have a “home”. Then you spend the rest of your adult life working so you can earn enough money to buy a place called “home” so you can have a shelter to grow old and die in. Then after you die the property is yours no more.

    There are some people who are born into wealth, lived in a luxury house on hundreds of acres land but feels just as homeless as the guy living on the street. In samsara, in this world we all suffer irrespective of our financial or social status.

    We cannot change the world we are born it but we can help where we can. What Kechara Soup Kitchen does is more than just feeding the hungry. It’s an offering of hope that life is not all suffering. That maybe for a fraction of a second even out on the street one actually feels “at home” and not homeless.

  3. Vinnie Tan on Jul 29, 2013 at 12:49 am

    It is really sad to see the homeless like that. Staying in places that no one will want to if they have the money. I have been on distributions before and it really is saddening to see them like this. With KSK helping them, they are very grateful for the things that they are giving. Can you just imagine how exposed they are? In terms of the germs, bacteria, illnesses that they may get because of this type of living environment. I really feel sad for them. Hopefully one day, all these people and the rest that are like that in the world would all be helped by people, and will help others that are like that in the future.

  4. abby f on Jan 30, 2013 at 11:41 pm

    We always see homeless people on the street but we always think that there are only just few of them. Until we go and see how the homeless live on the street, where they sleep, what they eat and where they usually go. Then we know homeless is not a small issue. It is not just about an individual having problems in his/her life, in fact there are many people who facing the same problem. They really need help, not just food. They need support and they need dignity too!

    Thank you Kechara Soup Kitchen for helping them to get back to normal life and have a life, a job eventually a home. There are people who really struggle hard to survive, we have to understand this. Beside feeling how lucky we are, we should offer our help to those who needs help too.

  5. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jul 16, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    I have participated in KSK rounds and seen the situation with my own eyes. Places which we wont go usually.

    Seeing them makes me feel grateful for what I have at the moment. For me, at least there is a roof above my head and I don’t have to worry whether the sun is going to be too strong today or the rain is going to be too heavy tonight. I am free of mosquito bites. In fact, for most of us, we would hope for rainy nights because usually in this kind of environment we will sleep better. For these people, however, they will have to sleep in the cold.

    We see sharp contrast between them and those who are living luxurious lifestyles. This makes me think about karma.

    In those rounds pictures are taken of them. I wonder if they mind us taking pictures? Or maybe we should at least ask for their permission before we take pictures of them, even if these pictures are taken some distance away from them. I think about privacy and respect for these people. My two cents of thoughts.

    Congratulations to the hardworking volunteers of KSK which was inspired by Rinpoche’s own experience with homelessness as a teenager and his subsequent desire to make sure no one is hungry.
    KSK is really gives us an oppurtunity to help those less privileged but also to help ourselves become more generous and selfless. If we cannot or do not want to go on the rounds, then donate and support the people who can.

    “Hunger Knows No Barriers” is a very important motto. If you x-ray a human of any race or religion, their stomachs are the same, empty. We should never ever discriminate. Feed everyone 😀

  7. 甲乙丙丁 on Feb 26, 2011 at 3:11 am

    What makes them end up on the street? Are they lazy people? Are they mentally challenged? Why can’t they work? Are they sick? where is their family? Why? Is this their destiny in this lfe?

    I think what Kechara Soup Kitchen do is really beautiful.

    It was on the evening of 13th May 1968. After the National Election of the country. The opposition or the Government takes over to rule tne country. Usually the Government will win. But in this particular year it was the opposition that has won only by a slight margin. There was unrest among the people. A big disruption ensued with burning of houses in areas surrounding the Kampong where I live. I just got married and have a two year old daughter then. Fortunately I had sent her to my parents house for a holiday in another part of the city. There were fighting and burning in front of my house. I and uncle eddie left the house immediately without taking anything except the pajamas I was wearing and my handbag. We were evacuated with a lot of other people to a Chinese Association. This is a racial disharmony among the people. The place was crowded with children and old people. For two weeks we had to share what little food we had that was salvaged from tne sundries shop. There was a curfew in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya. We are not allowed to go out. We don’t know wnether ur houses are burnt up or not. My point is I am in directly experiencing the Chinese Association as my home similar to those 1iving on the streets.

  9. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 23, 2010 at 1:13 am

    Rinpoche always manifests his principles through his actions. Hence he started KSK. Without this initiative there will be a lot more hungry people in KL.
    KSK has been exposing a lot of Malaysians to the this community service and giving people a chance to express their love and care for their fellow Malaysians. It is also an opportunity for people to develop a higher state of consciousness by caring for others.

  10. keng tan on Jul 16, 2010 at 7:25 am

    Homeless is not fun anywhere and most people are homeless not out of choice. For some, homelessness is an invisible phenomena – they choose not to see it (out of sight out of mind thing). Perhaps there is fear that maybe one day they may in that situation. Actually, if we lack spiritual practice or lacking good civic mindedness, the chances are that one day, we could end up in that state through karmic repercussions. We could be just one breadth away from it. So it is good practice to give aid always whether it be physical or monetary. Like many charitable organisations, KSK relies on the generosity of donors and volunteers. The KL homeless people are a little ‘fortunate’ to have KSK. Thanks to Rinpoche’s efforts in starting KSK which is now distributing more food packages out. I would also like to applaud the many very young volunteers doing the KSK rounds. They are setting good examples for more to follow and the media coverage also helps greatly to create awareness in the population.

    This is indeed a stark reminder to the vast contrast of a so called modern society. From the lap of luxury some of us live in, to the people mentioned and shown above, who just live on a day to day existence. Whilst most of us grumble that we merely get by on day to day basis, we should stop and think how incredibly fortunate to, at the very least, have a roof over our heads and food on our plates.
    How we live such deluded lives where we think we are always the victims! My mother always told me, “no matter where you are in life, there will always be someone much better off than you and someone less fortunate. Hence do not let pride rear it’s ugly head and always be thankful. Do not forget where you come from and always give where you can. If it is from the heart, no act is too large or too small” It has taken most of my adult life to realise this incredible perception she had.
    My most heartfelt wishes and dedications to my mother and all mothers out there, especially the lonely ones on the cold hard concrete floors at night. May they find solice and friendship in the kind efforts and compassion of Kechara’s Angels of the Night!
    Much love to Rinpoche, Ruby and her dedicated team!

  12. Beng Kooi on Jul 16, 2010 at 3:39 am

    Ruby’s sincerity is incredibly moving, and shows you just how passionate she is about KSK. No wonder KSK has come this far, from 20 packets of food per week back in 2006 to more than 850 packets per week in 2010. And the number grows each week as more volunteers and sponsors step forward to give back to their community and society.
    Homelessness is sad, it is desperate, it is an ugly truth and we may never be able to wipe it out completely. But thanks to the kindness of philanthropists like Ruby Khong, we can reduce the problem and relieve their suffering as much as we can. No wonder Ruby was named one of the heroes of philanthropy by Forbes http://www.kechara.com/soup-kitchen/press/press-coverage/forbes-features-philanthropy/
    Take Ruby’s example to heart – don’t ignore what is right in front of your eyes. Homelessness is real. Please help.

  13. Jess on Jul 15, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    When you join the KSK team hand out the food to the homeless,you will feel how fortunate you are to have roof on top and food on table, cherish whatever we have and don’t waste food.
    KSK actually not only provide the homeless hot food but also help them out from the street by helping them to get a job ,
    so please help the homeless by supporting KSK .

  14. patsygooi on Jul 15, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    It is very disheartening to see all these homeless sleeping out in the open, hungry, thirsty, lonely and lost. Looking at them suffering, our pains and sufferings just disappear. KSK has come a long way and with a dedicated and hardworking team, they are doing a great job in helping and feeding the homeless and needy come rain or shine. Not only that, KSK also provides medical assistance and tries to help those who are not old, sick or weak to get jobs.
    By giving our time, effort and money towards helping the homeless and needy, we are actually helping ourselves by practicing the act of generosity and cutting away our miserliness. We are so blessed and fortunate that we are not one of them out there, so please help by supporti ng KSK either in time or money.

  15. Sharon Saw on Jul 15, 2010 at 8:34 am

    Congratulations to the hardworking volunteers of KSK – another vital department of Kechara, which was inspired by Rinpoche’s own experience with homelessness as a teenager and his subsequent desire to make sure no one is hungry.
    KSK is really an opportunity – not just for us to help those less privileged but also to help ourselves get out of ourselves. How many people do you know who are depressed because of small, minor issues? How many teenagers grumble at their parents for not having the latest gadget? If only they could see the people who don’t have anything and are on the streets, they would get a different perspective on their lives.
    The beauty of KSK is that it helps both donor and recipient. If we cannot or do not want to go on the rounds, then donate and support the people who can. The important thing is to DO something, before it’s too late – for them and ourselves.

  16. Cynthia Lee on Jul 15, 2010 at 5:32 am

    What Ruby says is very true. There is a feeling of helplessness towards what we can do for those whose karma has manifested. There is only so much we can do for them to decrease their sufferings. Usually, to make in someone’s life or situation for the better is very much dependable on their own mind, effort, realization and sometimes even blessings.
    However, in cases such as the homeless people, it is very difficult for them to even help themselves now. Be it too sick, too old, mental illness not treated, etc to do so. It’s not as easy as just getting a job to get them off the streets. Some of them need psychology treatment and how are they supposed to work?
    Hence, let’s not wait till the last minute to help others. It’s either we stand and watch or do something before it’s too late to do so.

  17. martin on Jul 14, 2010 at 11:48 pm

    KSK is being led by a incredible team and its growth is powered by true compassion of its Committee. Ruby and her team lead by example and they actually lead from the front. Ruby, Julia and Justin are living examples of Dharma in action, and are true inspirations. May i also continue to be encouraged by their example and not tire of serving the cause.

  18. Shirley Tan on Jul 14, 2010 at 5:22 pm

    It’s very sad, in fact it is too sad for words. I was with Justin and Ruby in the route to Chow Kit (pictured above). If you see that picture, you’ll notice a lady lying on the pavement. Yes, that is her home.
    I last saw her in 2006 when I volunteered on that route with Su Ming and Justin. Her name is Rose or Rosie. She was much healthier in 2006 and she even made herself presentable despite the fact that she was sleeping on the sidewalk. There was still some sort of dignity in her.
    Now she looks completely wasted away, as if she is half the person I saw in 2006. She is definitely fading away fast. It is very painful to watch. It is exactly as Ruby described in her text above.
    May KSK truly save more lives.

    Inspiring read of a courage Lama His Eminence Gyara Rinpoche spoke about Dorje Shugden openly and giving Dorje Shugden initiation to thousands at Yading, Daocheng County of Sichuan Province, China. Yading, Daocheng Ling Monastery, also known as Shugden Monastery. The monumental hall at the monastery was built specifically in order to spread and preserve the Pure Je Tsongkhapa Tradition and pure Buddha Dharma in General. An erudite scholar,Gyara Rinpoche received many teachings, instructions, initiations, commentaries and empowerments of both Sutra and Tantra from his main teacher, H E Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche. He also studied under many other highly accomplished masters. Carrying on the tradition of spreading Dorje Shugden’s practice, he travelled extensively giving teachings and explaining about the ban on Dorje Shugden’s practice. Thousands of practitioners were at Yading, Daocheng Ling Monastery listening to his teachings, initiation and so forth. He has been spreading the Dorje Shugden practices to many Tibetans in Tibet during difficult times when there is still a ban of Dorje Shugden. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The film Faces of Death shows nothing is more precious than being in the present moment, fully alive , fully aware . We won’t know what happening next. Death is a significant and inevitable part of life. Death teaches us that life is impermanent. There is no escape from death. We are all going to die some day. It doesn’t matter whether we are rich or poor, successful or ordinary, evil or good, we are going to die one day. Death refers to the end of life, we all go through this sad occurrence, and it is unavoidable. We have to accept death, but for as long as we are alive, we should live our life to the fullest meaningfully and make sure to enjoy it. Life is a lot more fragile than we think. So we should treat others in a way that leaves no regrets. Nothing is permanent in this world. Life’s impermanence.
    Buddhism emphasizes the importance of accepting the impermanence of life. Some scenes in the video appear quite gruesome, not to me as I have seen real ones as I been working and assisting surgeon in open surgeries before. Have seen thousands of births and many deaths occur while working . Life’s impermanence, I realised is what makes every single time and hour so precious. Its what shapes us our time and what makes it so important than not a single moment be wasted. We should not cling on to our body and our self-cherishing mind. It takes facing death to appreciate life and each other fully people die remains in the memory of those who live on. Everything must have its beginning and must have ending. We never know how much we really believe anything until its truth becomes a matter of life and death to us. The source of human suffering and discontent is that we crave and cling to the things of this world. Human life is brief, nothing does. Our hair , teeth fall our bodies decline and decay. Watching this documentary film is indeed powerful, truthful and tells us more, Life is certain , death is uncertain , I am glad to have across Rinpoche ‘s blog learning and practicing dharma . I have immersed myself in learning more and accepting that life is finite. All that exists is impermanent, nothing lasts. Therefore nothing can be grasped onto. Awareness of impermanence and appreciation of our human potential will give us a sense of urgency that we must use every precious moment. Profound teachings reading those comments.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this precious sharing.

    Wow …interesting read . You would not believe this . A boy named, Jacob Barnett was 2 years old when he was diagnosed with moderate to severe autism by doctors. It seem this boy would likely never talk or read and would probably be forever unable to independently manage basic daily activities. At the age 3 he is able to able to solve 5,000-piece jigsaw puzzles. They were wrong this child turned to be a math whiz heralded as a boy genius whose passion and mastery of physics impressed experts later . At age nine, while playing with shapes, he built a series of mathematical models. That’s fantastic and shock his parents. He even demonstrated how he imagined numbers as shapes. Jacob enrolled in university at age 12, and he even published his first physics paper. He is considered as one of the world’s most promising physicists and the youngest researcher to ever be accepted in the Institute for Theoretical Physics.
    Jacob Barnett is indeed another proof of reincarnation, I do believe.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting post.

    Back in 2015, Kechara had the privilege and great merits to witness an auspicious trance in Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat. Those who were there witnessed a rare event where Dharma protector Dorje Shugden taken full trance of his official Panglung Oracle. Kechara has been very honoured and blessed that Dorje Shugden took trance of the Protector Dorje Shugden via the 7th Panglung Oracle or Chojela, an authentic and genuine oracle of Dorje Shugden . Wow all of the prayers, offerings, invocations, ritual instruments and recitations were all performed by Kecharians. They really did a good job. Rejoice. I not in Kechara yet back then , would hope one day Chojela will be taking trance again in the near furture.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing with beautiful pictures that tell us all.

    This is an amazing and extremely inspiring story of a young brave woman who was willing to help and save many innocent children, in spite of her own personal danger. She did not give up easily and would find a solution to problems. She took great courage to take a stand against oppression, and facing a great wrong of those holding power.

    Though she lost her father at an early age, his dedication to others and his last words made a deep impression on her. Her kindness and compassion won many heart.
    She was recognized as a heroine during the holocaust and made history of winning many internationally awards and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Thank you for the wonderful sharing, May God blessed her wonderful soul.

    Wow ..that’s scary and shocking. Can’t deny the fact that human are indeed the most terrifying species in the world. Unlike every other species on this list the vast majority of human killings are intentional, showing that appreciation of life needs to drastically improve.

    Most of these animals are now facing extinction or nearing extinction due to man’s greediness. The rush towards wealth has out weight and causes this issue which we don’t realize now that it may belongs to one of our losses.

    We should appreciate all living creature and hope that more people will be more compassionate and aware on our ecology.

    Powerful and wonderful teachings on Lord Setrap practice. Rinpoche had brought this powerful teachings all the way from India to Malaysia. Many Kecharians have benefited relying on Lord Setrap practice, that’s what I heard from those miracles stories. Beautiful thangka shared in this post and rare precious pictures of High Lamas.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. Looking at just the pictures is a blessing.

    The importance of the zodiac to the Chinese culture is that the animal signs have been used in stories and folklore. These developed the different personality traits that were represented by each animal.

    Learning more about astrology and the zodiac signs helps us to understand people and their action. It’s always interesting to find ahead of time what we need to be aware of with our surroundings.

    Thanks for the interesting sharing, the zodiac provides guidance on how people live their lives.

    Recitation of mantra meditation have benefits us in long run helps to increase self-awareness, reduced stress and a greater sense of calmness. Mantras are positive words or phrases. When we chant mantras our mind releases the positive energy that decreases the negative thoughts or stress. It’s a wonderful practice. Help us to improved mood and well-being, reduced anxiety , verbal memory and so forth. Mantras have influence over our mind and body. Mantras are repetitive sounds, many neuroscientists have proved that sound and language of mantras influence the aspects of our life. Watching the video tells us more. I am glad to have met Rinpoche, learning and practicing from scratch have me change to more calmer than before. Recitation have me chance.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing . Its rare and precious as we are not often given a chance to view Tibetan and very tradition funeral is conducted of a great Saint the renowned H.E. Kyabje Lati Rinpoche. Lati Rinpoche’s passing was a great loss to the Buddha Dharma world especially to Gelug Lineage ,Gaden Shartse Monastery, Gaden, Sera Drepung, and Tibetans on the whole. Lati Rinpoche had contributed towards teachings and spreading the Dharma was worldwide and was well respected by many devotees all over the world. Lati Rinpoche has travelled extensively, benefiting dharma students in various parts of the world. Lati Rinpoche did published several books published in Engilsh, and bringing teachings to countless thousands. Watching the video again had me thinking of our very own Lama Tsem Rinpoche ‘s funeral with much thoughts and tears. May we have merits so as to meet Tsem Rinpoche again.
    With folded hands thank you Rinpoche for been in Malaysia following the advice of a great teacher. Looking at those rare pictures of the cremation of H E Kyabje Lati Rinpoche, paints a thousands words.

    Its always good to know our family ‘s root history. Wow….. very rich heritage of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s family background. Not easy with extensive research only could traced back to both sides of history. Rinpoche’s heritage is truly rich in cultures and spiritually. Interesting read and beautiful pictures shared giving us a glance of the rich heritage of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche in China. Some pictures are rare and precious.
    Thank you Rinpoche, Pastor David and Pastor Niral, for this informative article

    Thank you for sharing this inspiring article with us. Although 80 years old, Mipham Gonpo’s never let his disability stop him from achieving his dharma practice. He was very ambitious and his mind was very determined to use the rest of his life to gain higher states of realizations before his death.

    Most of us are regularly unprepared for the actual task of discovering that which the dharma offers. Some have knowledge of dharma, they have understood some teachings, but they lack inspiration to practice.

    We should work on developing our minds and living a healthy lifestyle. Keeping the mind busy and fulfilled can help to overpower negative thoughts. Maybe it’s time to make a start as today there are great masters and people who want to engage with the dharma through meditation.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

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

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin.
