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.

  6. Sean Wang on May 16, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    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.

  8. Anila on Aug 14, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    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.

  11. Andrew James Boon on Jul 16, 2010 at 5:10 am

    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.

    This is great info. I have this problem a few years back and sometimes the pain can be intense and I have to take painkiller. I am lucky that I have found the right treatment and advise from a physiotherapy. While acupuncture treatments help but it only relief the pain for a short term. I think it is always important for us to know the cause and be aware of the position when engaging in any activities even as simple as standing and sitting. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this info.

    Thank Rinpoche Rinpoche for sharing the teaching on the fasting Buddha. It is a great reminder that nothing will come easy and despite the challenges, we should not give up and be persistent. The challenges and difficulties build our mental strength and helps us to appreciate everything much more. And with this we will not take things for granted easily. Buddha show us that everyone can achieve enlightenment if we put effort as all of us has Buddha nature in us.

    Dalai Lama says ‘too many’ refugees in Europe

    I find it so strange that the Dalai Lama should say this, don’t you? After all, the Dalai Lama and his fellow Tibetans in exile had been refugees for like 60 years? And still in refugee camps in India. So why would he make such a statement regarding refugees in Europe when India is still living with 80,000 Tibetan refugees? Find out more of what the Dalai Lama had said and do share with us your opinion in the comment section below the article.

    The International Mountain Museum is a museum located in Pokhara, Nepal. This expansive museum is devoted to the mountains of Nepal, the mountaineers who climbed them and the people who call them home. It is a showcase of various aspects of the Himalayas mountaineering and has a library with lots of interesting different objects on display for locals as well as tourist. Such as rock samples, information on the reclusive yeti, pictures and stuffed replicas of flora and fauna of the area. There is also a gallery featuring equipment, clothing, professional climbing ropes, and photographs of famous mountaineers. Interesting read and those rare old pictures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Wow…..Namche Bazaar is the staging point for expeditions to Everest and other Himalayan peaks in the area. It is also is a prosperous market town selling everything from Tibetan artefacts to trekking and climbing equipment for tourist. Its also famous for its homemade yak cheese and butter. As it is situated on the slope of an arch-shaped mountain, one could see the beauty of glorious mountain peaks throughout the valley, day and night.
    This relatively small town is a gateway to the Himalayas of Mount Everest for many …….as a bustling tourist zone as well. Namche Bazaar is renowned for being the first acclimatization spot on the way to Everest region trekking. Would like to visit this beautiful place someday.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team to share with us various large Buddha statues in Malaysia. It is nice to know that Malaysians also appreciate large Buddha statues which are highly beneficial to the entire area where it is located.

    One of the main reason for large Buddha statues to be built is to calm the land. Leishan Giant Buddha is one of the examples of an outdoor Buddha statue that is purposely created to calm the environment down. The Buddha statue is carved from a cliff and it depicts Maitreya Buddha who is very popular in China. The statue overlooks a river which has turbulent waters that caused alot of problem for shipping vessels that travels down the river. After the Buddha statue is being made, the water of the river did calm down. This is just one of the examples.

    Large outdoor Buddha statues are also built to bless the sentient beings that reside in that area. Humans or animals that can see the statue will be planted with Dharmic imprints that will benefit them in their future lives when they are triggered. Unseen beings around the area will also be blessed and pacified by the Buddha statue. That is why having a large outdoor Buddha statue is very beneficial.

    Have you ever wondered why we should make offering to the Sangha members? The Dharma is still available to us after Buddha Shakyamuni’s passing 2500 years ago because the Sangha members have been keeping it alive. The Sangha members study and learn Buddha’s teachings and then teach the Dharma to other Sangha and lay people like us. To support the Sangha is actually to support the continuance of the Dharma. If there is no more Sangha because of lack of support, the Dharma will also disappear. Since we have so much secular commitment and we are not able to dedicate our lives to spreading Dharma, we should support those who give up their secular lives to uphold the Buddha’s teachings.

    Why do we make water offerings to the Buddhas? Water offering is an easy and great way to help us to generate merits. We need to have merits in order to support our spiritual practice. By making water offering, we are cutting down our miserliness and is a direct method to create wealth and purify poverty.

    Vertigo is very common. Although most of the time, the underlying causes may not be life-threatening, but the symptoms alone are enough to affect our daily life. This article introduces a quick method (Epley Maneuver) to treat one of the most common type of vertigo which is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. Step by step instructions with pictures and video are included in the article.

    Piriformis syndrome is an uncommon neuromuscular disorder that is caused when the piriformis muscle compresses the sciatic nerve. The piriformis muscle is a flat, band-like muscle located in the buttocks near the top of the hip joint. Piriformis syndrome can be painful, but most people respond well to treatment. It is characterized by hip and buttock pain and many of the causes is still unknown. Piriformis syndrome is effectively treated with physiotherapy and medication in most cases.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this clear insight of Piriformis syndrome.

    Buddhism is a path of practice and spiritual development leading to Insight into the true nature of reality. Buddhism, religion and philosophy that developed from the teachings of the Buddha. Hence there are many places of worship for Buddhists, where Buddhist temples come in many shapes. As listed in the articles , those temples were built in the early centuries were indeed ancients and beautiful. The best known are the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa, Boudhanath in Nepal, Mahabodhi Temple in Bodhgaya, India, Borobudur Temple in Indonesia and Wat Arun Bangkok, Thailand.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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

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. Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu all came to make offerings to a Universal Monarch (Buddha) during this most auspicious time. This is one of the depictions of that. Tsem Rinpoche

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

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

    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

DID YOU KNOW? One group of the beneficiary groups our #surplusfood programme really want to target are actually children. Based on our stats, 90% of the #children from the poor we are serving do not have enough or literally no money to spend for food in school. Hence the bread we are giving them are very #useful. So when #children don't have enough food to eat, they tend to have problems concentrating in class & that's the main reason why they tend not to do well in school. Without education they are highly unlikely to break their #poverty cycle. #Facts #BreakTheChains #foodbank #studies - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
