Kwaidan Movies-Must Watch!! I love them!

Dec 24, 2013 | Views: 4,519

I saw these movies around ten years back. I didn’t think much when I first saw them as everything was without many words but upon watching them closer, I found the movies very meaningful. When I watched it carefully, I was amazed at the movies actually!! I wanted to share them with everyone so much.

I’ve uploaded them both with English and Chinese subtitles as they speak in Japanese. I really wanted to share these treasures with my blog friends.. I thought when you want to take a break, or on a rainy afternoon, or a quiet Sunday, you can enjoy these visual feasts..some of you might be in remote places, well you will love these…Take your time to watch them. I have tried to keep the quality as best as possible and this will take more time to download, please keep this in mind.

The blog team particularly Justin worked really hard searching high and low for these movies and it took forever to render, etc. Hats off to Justin for helping me get these available for all of you. Joy ran around town looking also…I thank her for her help. She searched high and low also.

Remember that Japanese film-making has its own cultural identity that is unique and may not be totally understood by non-Japanese viewers but the meaning behind it is universal. The colors, cinematography, and feelings these films convey are really unique. Remember, Kurosawa is a legend in the East and West. His talents transcend all. Steven Spielberg mentioned in an interview once how Kurosawa has impacted his art so much, saying Kurosawa is one of his many influences.

I really love these movies…Please enjoy…enjoy and enjoy and share with others. This is hard, BUT LET ME KNOW WHICH ONE IS YOUR FAVORITE AND WHY PLEASE…I’M VERY INTERESTED TO KNOW.

The word “Kwaidan” is a Japanese term for “ghost story” or “folklore”

Peach Orchard

Directed by Akira Kurosawa

The Doll Festival, traditionally takes place in spring when the peach blossoms are in full bloom. The dolls that go on display at this time, they say, are representative of the peach trees and their pink blossoms. One boy’s family, however, has chopped down their peach orchard, so the boy feels a sense of loss during this year’s festival. After being scolded by his older sister the boy spots a small girl running out the front door. He follows her to the now-treeless orchard, where the dolls from his sister’s collection have come to life and are standing before him on the slopes of the orchard. The living dolls, revealing themselves to be the spirits of the peach trees, berate the boy about chopping down the precious trees. But after realizing how much he loved the blossoms, they agree to give him one last glance at the peach trees by way of a slow and beautiful dance to Etenraku. After they disappear the boy finds the small girl walking among the treeless orchard before seeing a single peach tree sprouting in her place. Hope…new growth… new beginning again… very powerful.

The Blizzard

Directed by Akira Kurosawa

A group of four mountaineers struggle up a mountain path during a horrendous blizzard. It has been snowing for three days and the men are dispirited and ready to give up. One by one they stop walking, giving into the snow and sure death. The leader endeavors to push on, but he too, stops in the snow. A strange woman (possibly the Yuki-onna of Japanese myth) appears out of nowhere and attempts to lure the last conscious man to his death – give into the snow and the storm, she urges him on, into reverie, into sleep, into certain death. But finding some heart, deep within, he shakes off his stupor and her entreaties, to discover that the storm has abated, and that their camp is only a few feet away. It’s amazing how the storm is represented by this Yuki-onna. How artistic to represent an element in the form of a mythical being. How falling asleep, numbness, the false sensation of warmth is represented by her coaxing….very ingenious way to portray the struggles of mountain climbers trying to achieve something yet the elements are in their way…..My second favorite out of this lot..But be patient, wait till almost toward the end…watch carefully…not much words, but great movement and effects…

The Tunnel

Directed by Akira Kurosawa

A Japanese army officer is traveling down a deserted road at dusk, on his way back home from fighting in the Second World War. He comes to a large concrete pedestrian tunnel that seems to go on forever into the darkness. Suddenly, an angry, almost demonic-looking anti-tank dog (strapped with explosives) runs out of the tunnel and snarls deeply at him. He proceeds with his walk, afraid, into the tunnel. He comes out the other side, but then witnesses something horrific — the yūrei (ghost) of one of the soldiers (Private Noguchi) whom he had charge over in the war comes out of the tunnel behind him, his face a light blue, signifying that he is dead.

The soldier seems not to believe he’s dead, but the officer convinces him and the soldier returns into the darkness of the tunnel. Just when he thinks he’s seen the worst, the officer sees his entire third platoon marching out of the tunnel. They too are dead… He tries to convince them that they’re dead, and he expresses his deep-seated guilt about letting them all die in the war. They stand mute, in reply to his words. He then orders them to about face, and then march back into the tunnel. Lastly, we see a second appearance of the hellish dog, from the beginning of this dream. This is a very strong theme in Japanese culture-loyalty. Loyalty is a very important quality the Japanese treasures. So in this very riveting moving film, you can see, even if your dead, you are loyal…..something to learn for life I guess.

The Woman In the Snow

Directed by Masaki Kobayashi

An old and a young woodman are surprised by a snow storm, and the younger is saved by the spirit of a snow woman who falls for him. He promises never to tell what happened to him after witnessing this supernatural lady taking the life of the old woodsman… Years later, he breaks his promise, telling the secret to his wife with shocking results. He loved his wife and the happiness she brought to him, so he wanted to share everything with her..but but but….watch…

Hoichi The Earless

Directed by Masaki Kobayashi

The beginning of this film is so beautiful illustrating the battle between two royal ancient clans vying for power and control. When one loses, they have to safe honour and dignity. The costumes, scenes, and story is so reminiscence of Kabuki which I love….The blind Hoichi lives in a temple and magnificently plays his biwa and tells the sea battle of Dan-No-Ura between the clans of Genji and Heike. One night he is invited to perform his skills to a rich family and their guests in their house. He is invited nightly and slowly the life in him is taken away. The kindly abbot who is skilled in the arts of protection realizes what has happened to poor Hoichi and protects him. He has the sacred Heart Sutra painted all over the body of Hoichi to hide him from the spirits.

My step mom had the ‘third eye’. She used to see many types of spirits and have powerfully accurate dreams that were prophetic. Some of the spirits she saw were malevolent and wanted to harm her… So her family’s Tibetan Buddhist monk painted mantras on her body as a young girl with consecrated water with the parents present. After this, the malevolent beings could not harm her she told me…She would see them, but they would back away when they saw her..She felt a sensation of light emanating from her body when these spirits appeared to her she recalled…Hoichi has this done also and what I like is, it is based on a real practice to paint sutras on bodies when there’s a need, but there’s a fatal mistake by the Abbot’s assistant in this movie which brings both disaster and benefit…

The Amitabha temple in this movie is so beautiful as it was built to pacify the hundreds of sad souls that had died and are restless in that area. I like all the films, but this is my favorite. This film is stunning and I really like it very much…please watch carefully and enjoy. It’s mysterious and very entertaining also…

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you for this article. Back when I was in college, I loved art film maker like Akira Kurosawa, Ingmar Bergman and Federico Fellini. I used to envied them because they can make a living doing something that they really like. I often indulged in their movies for days during school break.

    Their movies keep people guessing and you would never know what would happen to the characters.

    Thank you again for posting the videos here. They make them recall sweet carefree memory during my college years.

    hello. I’m having a problem to watch the video with English subtitle. where do I click the link? please help me.

  3. Wan Wai Meng on Feb 20, 2014 at 1:21 am

    I am a big fan of Akira Kurosawa since watching the 7 Samurai, of which an Old western was based on. Hoichi the Earless is also my favourite. Another of Akira Kurosawa’s favourite of mine is Ran based on the Shakespeare’s King Lear, beautifully done, the use of colors is amazing and so are the costumes.

  4. henry ooi on Jan 29, 2014 at 11:14 pm

    With a running time of about 70 minutes, I like Hoichi The Earless. It is a full length movie complete with beautiful costumes of the 1680s, it’s war scenes, the simple lives of Japanese priests in the monastery, and the rich Japanese culture. However I find Woman in the Snow the most ghostly.

  5. henry ooi on Jan 12, 2014 at 10:07 pm

    I like Hoichi The Earless, good ending. My son got freaked out with The Woman in the Snow because of the deathly white colour of the woman’s face, hehehe.

  6. Jutika lam on Jan 4, 2014 at 11:05 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing such wondeful movies with all of us.

    Also big thanks to the great team that helped Rinpoche to look high and low for the full versions of each movie and also going to such extent to find versions with English and Chinese subtitles.

    When I have more time I will really love to watch at least one of the movies above to see how mind blowing it would be!

    Once again a BIG thank you to Rinpoche as well as the team that helped make this posssible.

    Love
    Jutika

  7. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Jan 4, 2014 at 2:24 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing Kwaidan Movies to us.

    After i watched all the movie, i feel that anything happen to us must be a Karmic connection hence we only can meet such consequences.

    So after know more in Dharma, we should always create the Good causes for our better future life time.

  8. Sean Wang on Dec 25, 2013 at 10:22 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these old Japanese Films and taking the effort to upload them. I have not really watched Japanese filmography as the only thing I watched prior to this article are the kaiju films. These films are very interesting as there is a second part to the story, a moral to be learned.

  9. Adrian Cho on Mar 6, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    It was so nice when I finish watching all of this few video and it is so interesting story. Especially I likes the video of “The Tunnel” and “The Woman In the Snow”, that showing us about loyalty and don’t break promises.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this few meaningful video.

  10. Sean Wang on Feb 28, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    Thank you for sharing these videos. Personally, I am more of a fan of the Japanese Kaiju movies like Gamera, Godzilla and Mothra. My favourite was Godzilla until Rinpoche introduced me to Gamera and since then Gamera had been my favourite.

    I think that Japanese cinema always love to share some form of message with the audience, allowing the audience to learn something instead of just mindlessly watching.

  11. Joy on Feb 14, 2013 at 12:53 am

    OMGawwwdd… I remembered watching this horror Japanese arty movie with Rinpoche a long time ago. I was more amazed with their costume and cinematography.

    But the one liked best is “Hoichi The Earless” where the sutra was written on the man’s body to broken him from evil spirits. I remembered watching this movie and it was the first time seeing this! Kurosawa movies sure tells very interesting tale and how he has filmed it, directed it is really artistically done… and it is one of those movies you don’t mind collecting and watching it over again. A timeless classic!

    • David Lai on Feb 28, 2013 at 1:55 pm

      Hahaha yes Joy,
      I remembered when Rinpoche was looking for the DVDs. You were frantically called me to ask where I last saw the DVD. I have watched all of them and the movies are really art pieces because of the fantastic cinematography and are basically a visual feast for the eyes. I particularly like Hoichi along with the Peach Orchard movie.

      The director of the first 3 is the legendary Akira Kurosawa, one of the most important figures in Japanese cinematography. There’s also another Japanese movie that I had watched which was really interesting but unfortunately, I cannot remember the title. It was about warlords in medieval Japan. There were a lot of magical displays of power as the warlords vied for power at the Japanese imperial court. Wish I remember the name of this movie. It was good and the effects was top-notch.

  12. terri on Jul 17, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    The peach orchard one, it’s so deep. That one little tree there all alone. It makes me wonder, what is precious? What is important? I used to think I knew, even last week. But now I don’t really know.

  13. terri on Jul 17, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    I love Kirosawa movies.

  14. Raluca on Jul 13, 2011 at 1:22 am

    I watched them all and they all appelled to me…I had no sad feelings watching the Peach Orchard, cause somehow I knew it would be ok in the end…I liked very much the Blizzard, especially the fact that their camp was actually VERY CLOSE…sometimes we give up when it is very close…..;As for the tunnel, as loyalty is so important to me, it was the one that moved me the most, although it was not the most artistic of them. What I loved about the Woman in the snow is the fact that some things are not implacable. Even the heart of that spirit “melted” and she didn’t kill him. Of course, there is always a price… Hoichi was the most artistic one, beautiful images and message but I found horrible the sound of that biwa instrument…..so I liked it also but more intellectualy…There is something sad and cold about the Japanese art, no matter how beautiful it is, as if life is really missing..It is a different culture, I was there,so I can understand that…..Thanks for the effort made to have these movies scenes on this blog!

  15. Valentina Suhendra on Jul 12, 2011 at 5:09 pm

    My dear Lama

    Thank you for sharing these movies. They are my favorite also. During my college years back in the US, I enjoyed watching films directed by Akira Kurosawa, Ingmar Bergman, Satyajit Ray, and Federico Fellini. I read the biographies of these directors. Their films and how they described the happenings of human lives whether it is sad, happy or in between are unique, artistic, and very beautiful. And so I learned about the concept of ateurs and how many of the films stories such as those by Fellini and Bergman are based on their own life stories.

    I learned so much about people diverse people’s point of views are and the way I view somethings may not be the same as others just from watching the works of these directors. For that I learned about tolerance for diversity.

    Much love and care

    Valentina

  16. tenzin llhamo on Jul 12, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    Dearest Rinpoche, thank you for the wonderful videos.
    I liked Peach orchard and Hoichi the earless.
    Had tears in my eyes when I watched Peach orchard because of the love and sincerity of the little boy for the orchard. In return, he got hope. Love the music, the slow moving ‘moves’, the colors and the costumes.
    For Hoichi, I liked the music and the biwa. Beautiful writing on Hoichi’s body. Even after what happened to Hoichi’s ears, he continued to play for the restless souls out of love and compassion.

    • tsemtulku on Jul 12, 2011 at 3:26 pm

      Dear Tenzin, I agree. I dropped tears for the little boy also as he was given hope for his trust and belief. Very moving.

      Hoichi although almost died and endured terrible tragedy, was not bitter. He continued his art and benefitted the Temple and the ghosts who harmed him. Beautiful Buddhist inspired story. TR

  17. Roy Martinez on Jul 12, 2011 at 1:52 am

    I love Hoichi the Earless and when I first saw it, I knew something bad was gonna happen because they forgot to paint the sutras on his ears! I felt really bad for him but I loved how it ended, Hoichi playing for the souls of the departed.

    I remember these movies so well that I can recall all of them to memory. This is a great selection and Lafcadio Hearn surely had an interest in Japanese culture to write these tales down.

    Excellent choice Rinpoche!

  18. Elaine Cheah on Jul 11, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    Just saw The Woman In the Snow and must say I liked it a lot. It’s so arty and the scenes are so picturesque they could make many poster opportunities. It’s like a butoh performance, every nuance heavy with meaning. In the first scene, while lost in the blizzard, I could not help but think, could it be like a cold hell, could he be drifting in and out of consciousness in a bardo like state. And is the bardo experience like that, when we don’t even know if we’re dead or alive. Food for thought.
    It got me hooked and must find time to watch the rest. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing them.
    Another arty film I like is Ashes of Time by Leslie Cheung.

  19. Uncle Eddie on Jul 11, 2011 at 4:30 pm

    Amongst the 5 japanese movies, Peach Orchard, seems the most appealing to my taste. With such a superb chance to peruse old japanese movies, it certainly brings back many old memories of the past,both pleasant and unpleasant. Japanese people are very cultural, fond of and expert at celebrating festivals. As seen in this old movie, Peach Orchard, where the Doll festival, traditionally takes place in spring where “cherry peach blossoms” are in full bloom. It is so wonderfully colourfull. Japanese too, are very artistic, decorative and filled with an immensed sense of beautiful colours, as can be seen in their beautiful, lovely varieties of colourful Kimonos, soooo pleasing to the eye! What an ingenious way to display their wonderful work of Japanese art, giving one such a deep sense of feeling of peace. Akira Kurosawa has always been and still is my favourite japanese movie director. Deeply appreciate and TQ to our Rinpoche for this wonderful entertaining teachings.

  20. .. .. .. on Jul 11, 2011 at 8:27 am

    what a wonderful film. .

    seems somehow elemental in places – especially at the beginning

    I don’t know –

    thankyou so much for sharing Rinpoche

  21. Ani Kunzang on Jul 10, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    Rinpoche ~ I had not read what you wrote about each film before I watched, but I chose to watch Hoichi because I liked the image. It is late, and I was not planning to watch the whole movie, I thought I would just watch 10 minutes. But I could not turn it off. What a brilliant and visually mesmerising work of art this film is. I was entranced the entire time by the music, the story, the stylistic and stark visuals. This is a very powerful film that I will think on some more, so many details, like an intricate jigsaw puzzle, piece by piece creating another world of many dimensions. The use of the 2 clowns was very skilful to break the tension and thus enhance it. Thank you so much for this unexpected gift tonite.

    • tsemtulku on Jul 11, 2011 at 4:02 am

      Dear Ani Kunzang,

      Being out there on a huge piece of land, in a tent, working for your teacher by loving/caring for animals is great, but you need a break sometimes. You deserve a break… When I was putting these movies online, I thought about you hoping you will watch them. My motive, to give you some artistic entertainment because you work so hard. Glad you enjoyed Hoichi. Please watch the other ones. Enjoy. Tsem Rinpoche

  22. Suzan on Jul 10, 2011 at 5:09 pm

    I love these short movies, too! I found the collection on Netflix here in the US under a slightly different name, and of course now I can’t remember it. This director has done amazing work, and these shorts are particularly wonderful. I highly recommend checking out more of his movies after watching this collections of gems.

    Here is a link on more about Kurosawa and his work: http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/filmblog/2010/mar/23/akira-kurosawa-100-google-doodle-anniversary

  23. Michael Kuang on Jul 10, 2011 at 9:25 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for posting these 2 great movies…
    I watched Kwaidan more than 10yrs ago when I was still in school. I only briefly remember the blind monk/musician who was disturbed by spirits and not knowing it and the part when the monk writes the Heart Sutra on his body was really cool as its to protect him from spirits..I will watch it again..

    Kurosawa’s is also one of my fav director. The Kurosawa’s film that I like: Yojimbo,Sanjuro, 7 Samurai, Hidden Fortress (Inspired Lucas to do Star Wars), Madadayo (a story about Guru Devotion), RAN (Japanese version of King Lear)

    It will be really good if Rinpoche can teach us on all the Dharma significance thru movies…it will be good, to have Youtube teaching on this.. 🙂

    Thanks again for all the teachings..it really change my way of looking at things

  24. Steve Tobias on Jul 10, 2011 at 6:21 am

    Thank you Rinpoche. I am a big “fan” of old Japanese cinema and still think of these short films, especially from Dreams. The old Zatoichi TV series was my other “favorite,” he acted almost exactly like a Buddha that takes wrathful form.

    • tsemtulku on Jul 10, 2011 at 6:25 am

      I also liked the old Japanese monster movies like Gamera, Godzilla, Mothra, etc. My favorite monster was Gamera. I use to draw alot of pictures of him as a kid. When I was in Tokyo/Kamakura a few years back, I saw shops that sold vintage and new figures of these monsters in many sizes. They are still popular there I would guess. Can find the films on youtube now also…love these films. Japanese are really good with movies..TR

      • Steve Tobias on Jul 11, 2011 at 5:09 am

        Rinpoche, I remember seeing bits and pieces of those late at night. The Youtube videos are very interesting

        If your assistants ever need help finding clips or editing anything please I hope they contact me. I work as a video editor, in fact I would like to do it for Kechara some day, and also it must be easier to get certain clips in the US with all the resources.

        • tsemtulku on Jul 11, 2011 at 3:32 pm

          Dear Tobias,

          We have alot of need for video editing. We have so much work. Seng Piow does the personal ones for me. He needs help for sure.

          And Yes many movies cannot find here where we are. Even when we order, some places in US do not send to Malaysia. So we usually order and send to a private person in US and they re-pack and then send it to us. It’s complicated to order movies and get them sent at times….There are many movies I am looking for from time to time…TR

    The meridian system is a concept in traditional Chinese medicine . It was at the Seoul National University, scientists has confirmed that the prime –vascular system is a crucial part of our cardiovascular system.

    Personally prefer traditional medical treatment as well, especially acupuncture and massage. These treatments focus on the root cause of the diseases rather than treating the symptoms.

    I found Beng Kooi 2nd row number 6 from the right as one look at the picture. Hope I am right. Well it is Beng kooi when I read those comments below. From the picture she still look the same. Yes Beng Kooi is one fully committed person, helpful, hardworking and friendly once one get to know her. I have the chance to meet her while volunteering at Kechara Forest Retreat. We have a friendly chat at that time.
    Oops so Su Ming is beside Beng Kooi, they are classmates. Fun as it bring back great memories by looking at old pictures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

    Dawn Giordano Garofalo is a classmate of Tsem Rinpoche while in Howell, New Jersey. Tsem Rinpoche had not met her 35 years but not forgotten as both of them has great memories . Its great that she allowed the bio research team to interview in the last minutes. She had shared her memories with Rinpoche of their childhood.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Watching the video tells a us a powerful message, go on meatless, vegetarian or vegan is the best choice to live a healthy lifestyle. Choosing a vegetarian diet is inherently healthful because vegetarians consume less animal fat and cholesterol . Nowadays more people are health conscious as they have seen animals been killed in a cruel way. Social media have sent out a powerful message eating meat is bad for health and many related diseases are the main cause of it. Go green to be healthy, nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on earth by eating meat. Eating a healthy diet high in fruit, vegetables and whole grains, will be good for our health. By reducing demand of meat we can safe animals from the slaughter house.
    Thank you Rinpoche, for sharing this video with us.

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge on topic of equanimity and emptiness. Equanimity is the basis to develop Bodhicitta, equanimity to me helps us to maintain a balanced outlook towards people and situations.

    With a balanced concern for all sentient beings, we can further develop our minds to have the happiness of others as a priority.Once again thank you for sharing this good article with us.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these precious rare pictures of great masters whose other than H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H.H. Kyabje Ling Rinpoche. We are truly fortunate able to view these rare pictures. Looking at the pictures tells us a thousand words and it’s a blessing merely by seeing it. The two great masters were tutors of His Holiness Dalai Lama and been travelling with Dalai Lama everywhere.

    The Tibetan Leadership (CTA) said that Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit yet at the same time they recognise the reincarnations of the Dorje Shugden lamas. That’s not logic at all. Reading this article tells one more than that, many great lamas have been reincarnated back again and again such as H E Serkong Dorje Chang, H E Gyara Rinpoche, H E Kyabje Lati Rinpoche , H E Khari Kentrul Rinpoche and many more. Many high lamas and monks have engaged in Dorje Shugden’s practice over the years. When they passed away, their undisputed incarnation has returned , it has proven that those who practised Dorje Shugden’s practice do not go to the lower realm as claimed by CTA. Some of the past great lamas even composed the Dorje Shugden puja and prayers had it proven too that this practice is not a minor practice. It has been around more than 400 years old. Dorje Shugden was a pervasive practice within the Gelugpas before the ban.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this well explained article for more people to understand .

    Well done the writers team from Kechara who had interviewed Geshe Lobsang Wangchuk , spoke what his thoughts of all about Kyabje Tsem Rinpoche our Lama. He is a personal friend of Tsem Rinpoche spoke the truth and only truth. Gen Wangchuk recounted Tsem Rinpoche’s Guru devotion, kindness and had help many monks from his home and headquarters Gaden Shartse Monastery, and even monks from different monasteries. Tsem Rinpoche understand the hardships of monks gave what he could even he had little for himself. Many monks have benefited from his kindness, Tsem Rinpoche was one of the few international lamas living overseas that had contributed significantly to monasteries. Rinpoche gave all that he had to benefit others, and even to beggars on the streets Rinpoche met. Rinpoche’s help had made a difference in the monk’s lives, supporting, encouragement, sponsoring dharma books and so forth.
    Thank you writers team for this wonderful sharing.

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.
    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

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. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
