Dear Rinpoche,
 We are having our 2nd rehearsal of ‘wanna be girls’ at KC Gallery tonight. 

We got shoes and dresses for everyone. Will make them rehearse with the shoes so they will get used to the high heels.Thank you, 
Margaret

The Wonder Girls practicing with high heel now. Try to get the feel of it....it's painful! *Ouch!*

Kechara is well known for it’s wonderful shows and productions in past years. Some of our productions have won prizes and awards in Malaysia. We are not just another dharma centre with goody-goody themes and boring people. We are daring, modern, fun, today and even racy. But we have our limits too….fun and entertainment for everyone is the name of the game!

Kechara World Peace Centre is having their first dinner and there is going to be a spectacular show…and these guys are going to shock us with their moves, costumes and gender-bender costumes!!

Be prepared for another stunning fun evening with Kechara!!! Be prepared to laugh till you drop!!!

    Dear Rinpoche, I think I would laugh to death if I watched them perform again. I’m not trying to against gay thingy or something but somehow I would always laugh until I can’t anymore whenever I see gay people doing funny and weird things. It’s my really weird behavior. Out of this topic, I have this really really weird behavior that I had when I still a kid was sniffing cleans socks. I loved the smells of my baby socks and I don’t know why. Lol

  2. Edward Ooi on Oct 1, 2013 at 12:35 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I was there that night throughout the whole event. I love the performances but I couldn’t hear them making jokes. I think it’s really painful for them to wear high heels but they looked good in it and they have also trained really hard to do the performance.

  3. wei theng on Feb 13, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    OMG, this is so funny & shocking to see the pictures! I am sure it will also frighten or chase away some people when they see it. hehehe
    However, they are so great in handling their ego and their pride to be dressed in sexy lady and in heels. I am sure it is not an easy task for them to do to face people, looking and laughing at them too. I salute them in that and rejoice they are one step ahead in their spiritual journey!

  4. edward ooi on Feb 12, 2013 at 11:55 pm

    I have seen this group of people pretended to be Wonder girls and dance while wearing girls clothing and high heels hahaha very funny. I bet their feet hurts a lot because heels are designed for women not for man and they worked very hard.

  5. Anila on Oct 30, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    OMG! Bryan, Ethan, Joe Ang, Eric Choong, Peter Ho asnd Chia were so excited to become or dance and act as girls for a fund raising show. The rehearsals were done in the uncompleted premises of Kechara Care. The guys with the best bodies and shape when dressed up and walking with their 4″ high heel shoes were Joe Ang, Bryan and Eric Choong. Although some of the guys have natural flare of character of girls but their bodies and legs give them away. Some of them have chubby bodies and some have muscular legs. The WANNA BE GIRLS dance to the tune of modern music. This was performed at the 1st event of an auctioned dinner to raise funds for KECHARA WORLD PEACE CENTRE.

  6. Jess Lai on Jul 9, 2010 at 4:10 pm

    Never come across my mind that it is so fun in a buddhist organisation fund raising dinner,the students will do whatever they can to raise fund and at the same time they are cutting away their ego !
    Under Rinpoche guide and nurture,we have so much courages to be who we are, to do whatever we never think we can do for dharma.
    Peter told me that sometimes they practice 5 hours a day till his legs feel so pain with the 4 inches high heel..and Bryan even broke a pair and need to get a new pair.
    We appreciate you guys for putting efforts,energies and times for this fund raising dinner. No excuses for not coming to attend and support this dinner.
    so guys…BE YOURSELF AND BE BETTER !!

  7. Carmen Koo on Jul 9, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    Who enjoys being laughed at, being the ‘entertainment’ for everyone to joke and laugh about? Upon hearing a proposal like this, most people would laugh it off, play it down and give an upright “no”. BUT these boys, or should i say “wanna be girls”, has put their ego aside, stopped focusing on themselves to spread the Dharma, to benefit KWPC and to raise funds for what is going to be a night filled with joy, laughter, and fun. Sharon has commented so aptly above.
    I’ve seen part of their rehearsals. Having the very talented Margaret choreograph their slick moves, it’s going to be epic. Respect to you boys. Let your hair down, and dance the night away!! I am looking forward to seeing you all perform, and I’m sure many people will too, so what are you waiting for? Come support the dinner, the performance, Kechara and KWPC!

  8. Allan Lee 李栢荣 on Jul 9, 2010 at 1:20 am

    To all the wannabe girls, respect you guys from the swannabe here. Those high heels are making you guys so sexy. Bryan, try not to break your high heel anymore….that’s not very wannabe 😛
    You guys really practised hard and I give my salute to you guys. As for Joe, you really earn the respect from us. You put so much effort in your steps and it does not end there, you helped Chia in his moves. That is so much dedication being put in to make this dance successful.
    We swannies will learn from you guys as well and will put our best feet out to practise hard for this great great event!
    For those who do not know about this, check this great and fun event at http://kechara.com/cn/dinnerauction/ We promise you a night fill with laughter! Winks!

  9. weeliang on Jul 9, 2010 at 12:43 am

    Dear man chicks,
    I am very excited to see you guys rock the stage on the Kechara Auction dinner on the 18th of july 2010. I hope this highlight of the evening will sell all the tables at the dinner. I am sure you guys will give everyone a good show. Your ability to put your ego aside is most incredible. Practice hard, make sure you guys do not get lipstick on your teeth, mascara in your eyes and be most careful of not hurting yourselves on those heels. They look dangerous. Most importantly, have tones of fun doing it. Your act is a teaching about ego and humility.
    With much respect,
    Wee Liang

    For those of us who are up-tight, this attitude just invades everything we do, we are up-tight when in a restaurant, we are up-tight at the post office, at work, with friends, with our family, even in our leisure time, even when we cook, or even bathe. Well, I certainly know what I am talking about, I am one of these freaks. Up-tight I look, up-tight I think and I am.
    How to cure this? If you are a man, put on some heels and a wig and make a complete fool of yourself, the feeling of being, at first, ridiculous and laughed at turns into freedom, there is that shift at one point when one let’s go of what the others think and just “go with it”.
    Check out comment from David above, he is talking about this experience first hand.
    I have seen this many times, I have crossed dressed myself, but I have also seen many people doing it for the first time, overcoming a fear and eventually having a good time.
    The feeling of having overcome a fear is similar to a feeling of freedom.
    Now, having said this, that “cross-dressing” method only applies for some, because, believe me I have come across a few “up-tight” cross dressers too… LOL

    Kechara is truly a melting pot of all sorts of people thats what makes it so unique. They have so many different activities that people dont usually would not even associate a Buddhist Organisation with but at here they will do anything that bring benefits to people that participate or dont participate , directly or indirectly. These voulunteers that i got to know quite well recently are just a bunch of very fantastic and big hearted people. They spent time & energy simpl to benefits other people. They are never selfish and are always ready to help.
    I hope in the future more and more people will join and get benefits from all the activities around Kechara. The more people get involves in Dharma work the more the world might become a better place to our future generation to come.
    They are the best !

  12. Peter on Jul 8, 2010 at 7:06 pm

    Terima Kasih Rinpoche!
    It’s so comforting to know that openness for diversity is one of Kechara’s hallmark qualities. Maybe it’s time perhaps next year or next dinner, it’s the ladies’ turn to come in as men? LOL
    Then we can have ‘Swan Legs’ then …rofl
    This dinner will be an interesting one for the manifestation of KWPC via KSK and KH and worth the effort to either be a volunteer or a participant, either way making the event a worthwhile one whilst having a great time creating great causes for oneself and others.
    It’s been so edifying to be with Rinpoche, Kechara and now this ‘Dragtastic’ event! Syabas! and Sadhu! to the team!

  13. ngeowchin on Jul 8, 2010 at 4:44 pm

    Thank you May Ong for realizing I am not one of them girls and coming out in the clear !
    I am honoured to be asked to take part in the role of the black swan although right now i have no idea what I am supposed to do.As long as its for a good cause like fundraising for Dharma, KWPC, it will be meaningful and joyful affair. The fun is a by- product.
    I am going to enjoy as much as everyone because we are sharing the same motivation. Besides how many grandpas have the merit to be invited to perform on a stage for a sacred cause before hundreds and making everybody laugh. Sorry if I make you jealous he he.

  14. May Ong on Jul 8, 2010 at 4:03 pm

    To men who wants to be girls or vice versa
    Labels and discrimination – is it right or wrong? Do we have the right to label the as men or girls or otherwise?
    Home is where you make of. You must love Kechara or else you wouldn’t have let your ego down and come out in the clear to show who you are, except for Mr Ngeow of course. I missed 2009 Swank Lake dance but I won’t miss it this year. Bravo to you all for putting in the effort and time to bring laughter and joy to benefit Kechara House and Kechara Soup Kitchen.
    For shaving the legs services – do let us know if you need help.

  15. fang on Jul 8, 2010 at 2:32 pm

    I absolutely love the variety and diversity in Kechara. It is great to be in a place so nurturing, kind and free from discrimination. In my little knowledge and exposure to religions… Buddhism is one of the very few who has not and does not condemn homosexuality. Although not encouraging the act, it provides a basis to practice tolerance and understanding. The Dalai Lama is well known for his activism for human rights, and this specifically includes equal rights for gays. According to an Office of Tibet spokeman, “His Holiness opposes violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation. He urges respect, tolerance, compassion, and the full recognition of human rights for all.” It is always nice to have a place where one can just be themselves and not be afraid or be judged. Learning to be comfortable in our own skin.
    ps – please note that not everyone in swan lake+wannabe girls are of the ‘happy’ nature! I just felt I needed to justify that! :p BREAK A LEG GUYS (and ‘GIRLS’)

  16. Sean on Jul 8, 2010 at 2:20 pm

    Oh my god, my eyes feel like they want to pop out! More drag queens this year ! Byran, Ethan, Joe Ang, Eric choong, Peter Ho and Chia look so cute it their rehearsals. Chia looks very ecstatic wearing high heels, I think it is quite cute. People in Kechara are always fun. I want to be a person like them one day. I wouldn’t mind wearing a dress. These sorts of performances show your bravery and let you flaunt your abilties that you are trying to hide. All of this is for Kechara World PEACE Center, so don’t worry guys, there will be no flinging of tomato’s at you… haha. I will be prepared for another funny and laugh till your drop evening with Kechara House.

  17. pamela on Jul 8, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    Our ego and pride, destroyer of many things around us but in Kechara, we are taught how to minimize and let go of such negative feelings. To be a better person, no matter when or what situations we are under. Having Rinpoche as Kechara Organisation’s Spiritual Guide has really helped a lot of people into knowing how to break the the negative imprints. We are so lucky to have Rinpoche around as he speaks perfect English having brought up in USA when he a was young (http://www.kechara.com/rinpoche/biography/5-moving-to-america/) and NO, we dont need a translator.
    The first time I watched a gig by Kechara Organisation was last year when we were doing fundraising ( we are non-profit, believe or not….http://www.kechara.com/about/what-is-kechara/) in Kechara Oasis (http://www.kechara.com/dining/). It was fun and funny, all of us had a FUNTASTIC time so come and join us this July 18th 2010, 7.30 pm at Sunway Resort Hotel for another episode of FUN!

  18. Elaine Cheah on Jul 8, 2010 at 1:35 am

    It’s great to see that Kecharians can be game for anything! Even those with a stiff upper lip will surely not be able to stifle a snigger. Going from what we had last year, we might see really gross looking “women” with make up all tarty and a mess, with bras that don’t seem to sit at the right positions, really hairy and rough looking specimens in mini-skirts who don’t sit like women in mini-skirts should and what’s incredible is that they dare make a fool of themselves! However, I think this year’s crop of performers looks a little more refined compared to the last, some are downright pretty and I guess the make-over will be stunning!
    Just to think that our Lama gives his thumbs up, even encourages it and laughs along with it, makes it all the more incredible. How refreshing! The key is, no harm and for a good cause. It’s ok to laugh at ourselves and have others laugh at us sometimes. It’s time to break down all the stereotypes; after all they are man-made and just outer labels that we impose on ourselves. We want to Break Free!

    OMG, this was posted in Rinpoche blog, *faint* now. Well, I’m Peter Hoh, this is my 2nd performance for Kechara Fund Raising Event, Hope everyone can support this Fund Raising Dinner, and please do help by clicking on this link: http://www.kechara.com/peace-centre/news/double-fund-raising-extravaganza/
    If you all still remember last year Karaoke events (Starry Starry Night) hosted in Kechara Oasis, I was the one with the super thick make up, shining dress, heels and scary wicks – Mariah Carey and Dreamgirls (Beyonce Balls)..Hahaha…if you like to see me in the performing again this year, please do come and support in this Fun and Entertaining Night with us.
    I promise you, I will do my best in this performance as well as my fellow girls, we will delivered the best of the best to you all and don’t miss it.

    PS: That night you will see the super “HIAO” and “GATAL” of me. .kekeke

  21. Tyler Mihalson on Jul 7, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    Ok, I cant lie, THIS IS HILARIOUS. Can you say Dharma Drag? I never thought I would be able to, but I guess I see that it works! I think this is an amazing way to get peoples’ attention and draw them in and get them interested. I am a proud gay man, and would be honored to serve my lama in this way. This event is such a wonderful example of skillful means.
    It shows that there are many ways to raise awareness for the Dharma other than being a monastic practitioner.
    Thanks for sharing this with us,
    Tyler

  22. joey on Jul 7, 2010 at 2:52 am

    haha this is so hilarious but at the same time a very deep teaching because its not easy to be in drag. pride as a man prevents me from even touching makeup, let alone ladies’ clothing! It feels really awkward to be in such clothing and also to not be laughed at or ridiculed. And to perform and make fun of themselves in stage wearing drag! That has got to be very nerve racking indeed!
    But the most amazing part is they’re not doing it for money (or their fetish..maybe they are but nevermind) but they’re doing it for the Dharma. To offer their pride as man for the Dharma is a very great offering. I am not sure if i can stand to the challenge of appearing in drag…especially on stage!!

  23. Peter on Jul 6, 2010 at 5:31 pm

    Terima Kasih Rinpoche!
    One moment in time to remember…
    Some of my friends whom I knew back then…and those I have yet to meet…
    The ‘real drags’, my ‘sisters’ in real life…
    An aspiration for them…from my heart…
    May they be well and happy
    May they find love & acceptance within themselves
    May they find solace & peace in times of trouble and ridicule
    May whatever they do to eke out for a living be successful
    May they encounter the Buddha Dharma
    May they practice and obtain Liberation
    May they once obtain Liberation, return back riding on their vows!

  24. KOK YEK YEE on Jul 6, 2010 at 9:34 am

    Men want to become woman!!!See Kechara boleh!!!!Everything is can. Our friend Peter, chia, jo eng and eric want to become woman; this time their dream will become true. Sooooo funny!!!!
    Few of them started their rehearsal to prepare for first KWPC dinner on July 18, 2010. Every week, they start rehearsal from evening until midnight. Some of them, this is they first time stand at stage. Because of KWPC they give up their ego, selfishness, pride and face, make up themselves be a ugly “lady”. But they are very fun and cute. You can see wanna become woman video in you tube.
    If you want to watch this four girl dancing in the real stage, please come to July 18, 2010. Please book table before finish, if not you will regret. A bid for peace, go into (http://kechara.com/cn/dinnerauction/) find more information. See you in there!!!

  25. Woan on Jul 5, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    From Puja, retreats, prostration, mantra chanting, Tsongkhapa stage play, swank lake and now THIS!!! One does wander where is the boundary !?!? Or is there a boundary? How far off can we go to, what and how else should we take on to drop our big fat ego and take one step to enlightement?? Even if its just a small step??
    To all the Wannabe err GIRLS, I rejoice for your courage and the willingness to take the extra mile for dharma and for the advancement in your individual spiritual journey. You go GIRLs!
    I will be at the Fund Raising Dinner to cheer and to… LAUGH !!!!!

  26. Albert on Jul 5, 2010 at 7:39 am

    Haha!!!
    Compare to the first day when they had their first rehearsal, it was so funny where everyone’s movement is just like a Robot, wonder they are doing marching or dancing, but few times after, now I would say they are much professional and look more like a ‘girl’ for their dance move.
    Dressing up with a female costume is a way to break our ego; as our ego is one of the main obstacle for us to go forward, in our life, many of us has missed out a lot of good opportunity due to our ‘BIG EGO’, therefore breaking our ego is a great advancement in our spiritual practice.
    Everyone want to look good in front of others, who are willing to wear like a clown to make laughter for other people? But these ‘girls’ are doing it not for earning any income but it is for the spread of dharma, this is one of the event we have for Kechara’s Fund-raising dinner.
    Please visit http://www.kechara.com/peace-centre/news/double-fund-raising-extravaganza/ for further info.
    COME AND JOIN US FOR THE DINNER AND ENJOY THE SHOWS

  27. Justin Cheah on Jul 4, 2010 at 7:25 pm

    Yes I agree with Sharon, performing a drag show and having fun can be Dharma at the same time. It is about letting go of our ego. I performed once last year and I thought it was very fun and meaningful because the funds that I raised will be for Dharma.
    Letting go of your ego and perform something which embarrasses oneself. What a meritorious way to do for your mother temple. I salute you guys for your bravery to come out onto the stage and perform with your high heels. Must be very painful ouchhh!!! I can’t wait for the show! Hehe…
    Please go and support the KWPC fund raising dinner on July 18th at Sunway Resort Hotel. Please contact Cheri Woo at 7880 0189 for table reservations.

  28. Irene Lim on Jul 4, 2010 at 4:54 pm

    It is great fun you wanna be girls! You are doing your bit to raise fun for the Dharma while losing your inhibition. Last year you girls performed the Swan Legs not Swan Lake yeah. What is the team this year Girls? You wanna keep us in suspend? This performance is getting more and more popular. You Girls may one day land up in performance around the world, you never know. You Girls can perform to promote Kechara World Peace Centre. We would be famous .
    Which Buddhist organization is as unconventional as Kechara? How fun and modern to be in Kechara. We go to enlightenment while enjoying our fun!

  29. Girlie on Jul 4, 2010 at 3:58 pm

    GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN!!!! And boy, do these girls really love fun.These girls really love what they are doing – they dance, strut, shake whatever assets they have! And in heels, too. It’s no joke to be walking around in heels, what more when they have to dance in stilettos. WoW!!! Margaret, you are torturing them, but maybe they enjoy it? A sneak preview at their 1st rehearsal had me in stitches (a personal invitation came from Su Ming for me to go watch my “children” giving their all to support Rinpoche).
    Rinpoche has taught us to be what we are and he always brings out the best (and the monster) in us. The girls are putting up this performance not only because they enjoy it but because it is for a good cause and they want to help Rinpoche build KWPC to benefit the people of this region.
    (check out http://kechara.com/cn/dinnerauction/)

  30. yoke fui on Jul 4, 2010 at 3:41 pm

    Yupp, Kechara is fun, unconventional, spiritual….
    Rinpoche always encourages us to be honest, be what you are, do what you would like to do but dare not do for whatever reason. So here are the Kechara pretty “girls”, who don’t mind being laughed at for a good cause.
    Imagine the problem we create for ourselves clinging to a certain norm, an image of how a man/woman should appear or behave. In Kechara, students are encouraged to develop the inner qualities of care, kindness, awareness, honesty, integrity etc .
    I was surprised when I first came to Kechara by Rinpoche’s boldness and directness. Now, nothing ( I hope ) surprises me and I become a more open and less opinionated person.

  31. PGdiamond on Jul 4, 2010 at 10:28 am

    Hehehe I can’t believe that Mr. Ngeow, Tat Ming and Wai Meng doing this also. They really love and have faith in Rinpoche so much to go all the way for the benefit of KWPC.I wonder how they are going to walk on stilettos!!! Hope they wont tripped. But who cares if they tripped. Its not about how good they perform but how willingly they can let go of their ego!!!

  32. Josh A. on Jul 4, 2010 at 5:15 am

    To benefit KWPC I would be in drag so fast your head would spin. Wax me down, doll me up, ANYTHING I can do to make that idea one step closer to reality, while pleasing a Rinpoche, and cutting down my ego at the same time! Every man in Kechara should be fighting over who gets to do this! When I visit Malaysia, you can mark my words if I ever get a chance to dress drag for Dharma, I’m in!

  33. Han on Jul 4, 2010 at 4:42 am

    What a “Wanna Be Girls” performance!
    One of the modern way of spreading dharma thro arts & performace, i like the concept of doing this to raise fund for KWPC.Within KH , we have so many talented ppl and THE GIRLS really go ALL OUT to perform for dharma.
    Like Wan mentioned :actions reflect people mind. Dharma can be in any shapes and forms, most importance is mind transformation. I belief, THE GIRLS will go ALL OUT to give the best shot with no agenda. Rinpoche even assigned few more to be involved, those SERIOUS, never thought they wil be the suitable one but were selected by Rinpoche. Rinpoche wants us TO THINK, TO OPERATE OUT OF THE BOX WITH NO FEAR, then our spiritual journey will go further…How skillful Rinpoche is!
    Cant wait to see their shows.

  34. chia on Jul 4, 2010 at 3:20 am

    Wanna Be Girls
    This is my third performance continue for pass three years. The challenge of the performance this year become more and more difficult compare by pass two year. Start just wearing the wig, make up until now have to wear mini skirt and high heel to dance. Is suffering and painful wearing the high heel to dance? But all this is work it to put down my ego to performance for Kechara World Peace Centre charity fund raising.
    For this year charity performance, I performance as wanna to be girl group. We all practice hard for the show to give our best for the performance. Other exciting group performance like swanklake. This year, we have enroll more swank lake members to join as the group performance. I can’t wait to see Mr Ngeow our Lam Rim teacher and Albert outlet manager to performance swanlake.
    Don’t forget to support our in house performance for the KWPC charity fund raising at 18 of July 2010.
    Chia

  35. wan on Jul 4, 2010 at 3:17 am

    Wow! This wonder girls and swan girls are really brave, beside to entertain and make people happy with their performance 🙂 All these girls are really sincere and humble to put their ego aside and do whatever it take to make Dharma grow, and it was amazed as most of them are newbies who just joined as Kechara member in this few months, actions reflect people mind. Dharma can be in any shapes and forms, most importance is mind transformation.
    They are seriously practice to make sure it perfect when they are perform, I can’t wait to see when they are performing with make up, costumes and high heels.
    Bring your friends and family to support us. All of the proceeds of this dinner will be channeled towards the renovations of Kechara House’s new gompa (prayer hall), and the new premises of Kechara Soup Kitchen. check out for more information about this dinner from

  36. Wendy on Jul 4, 2010 at 3:16 am

    It’s true that whenever Rinpoche asks us to do something no matter how bizarre it may seem is never without a higher purpose. It may look like a crazy out of the world samsaric activity. However, when we look deeper, it is to shake us out of our fixation of how things should or should not be so that we can become more open, receptive and pliable. Many of us through a life time of habituation have certain fixed set of belief that prevents us from exploring new learning and progress. Maybe a drag show in a Buddhist event is one way of breaking social conventions and our belief of how we think things should be.

    Hahaha! I still can’t believe that Jo Ang is doing this! I think perhaps the costume team should invest in a few waxing strips!

    Wow all the above picture looks so funny and interesting. I’m sure KWPC dinner Fund raising will be a great and we will have lots of fun. Last year we have the Dream Girls these year we will have Wonder Girls made in Malaysia.
    A lot of time when customer shop at our outlet they will find it weird to find the Dream Girls Card and I remember the question that was put forth by 1 western visitor, was how does these drags cards relate to a Buddhist teachings.
    I explain to him along the line of comfort zone and ego and he except and he end up buying 2 cards. Can’t remember which one but he laughs at every piece that he went trough. If i’m not wrong one of them is David card.
    I was there for the previous events and I laugh my head’s off.

  40. Li Kheng on Jul 4, 2010 at 12:45 am

    This is certainly Dharma for the 21st century: dynamic, out-of-the-box and fun WITHOUT compromising on Dharma learning for the participants as shared by Sharon above.
    Additionally, all this fun contributes to a bigger cause: fund raising for Kechara World Peace Centre (KWPC; http://www.kechara.com/peace-centre/).
    In compliment to this fun and racy version of Buddhadharma, Kechara House is uncompromising in providing accurate and traditional ceremonies/pujas learning for students.
    In other words, we get the best of both worlds! This all encompassing “form” of Dharma teaching is also a reflection on the extent of compassion our kind Buddhas and Gurus have for us: innovating pure Dharma to effectively impact and benefit our minds.

  41. Joy Kam on Jul 4, 2010 at 12:43 am

    Now this is what I called Spirituality! Dharma the 21st century… where you can be who you want to be and be happier, kinder, and gain attainments too 🙂
    Some of the girls I know a long time ago, like Chia, did not come out in the open that easily. It took Rinpoche years of teasing and confronting and finally in one of our infamous late night meetings, Chia came out and admitted. What is the lesson we all learnt is – to love and accept who you are and to me that is real Dharma. I applaud your courage Chia! Well I guess you’ve found home, Kechara where we welcome anyone, shape, gender or form! Everybody deserves Enlightenment, that’s what Buddha says heeee!
    This show has a great cause – Kechara World Peace Centre – our future and everyone can be a part of this legacy http://www.kechara.com/peace-centre/

  42. mayy on Jul 4, 2010 at 12:39 am

    How interesting!!!! This reminds me of my trip to Haadyai Thailand and my experience watching the drag show. Honestly some of the ladies do put a lot of ladies to shame with their abundant assets and graceful dancing. Now I do not need to go so far for such a show and Kechara’s production is equally good, if not better. I am sure looking forward to the dinner show but I do hope the “stars” will have their legs shaved before appearing on stage or else I would find swallowing my food difficult. Ha ha ha….. Congratulations to the Wannabe Girls for great dharma service. Way to Go Girls!!!! Come all and support the noble cause of KWPC and don’t miss the great shows lined up for the evening!

  43. PGdiamond on Jul 3, 2010 at 11:43 pm

    They are four more new comers Voon Chin, Wai Meng, Tat Ming and Kok Thai aka Fat Monk joining Peter, Chia, Eric, Jo Ang, Ethan and Bryan. It’s gonna be a night of fun and laughter and it’s all for a good cause. From the photos, those “gals” looked like they are enjoying themselves very much.
    As Rinpoche explained, dressing up as drag is a dharma practice by itself. It is cutting away our ego. So you guys and “gals” please remember to shave the hair on your legs. We don’t want to see hair sticking out from your panty hose. Bravo to all of you!!!!!

  44. susan on Jul 3, 2010 at 10:57 pm

    Margaret,
    You put on a real creative show last year. It was a blast!! Oh my! The decor was superb and the people who participated were had such diverse characters. Some guys REALLY WANTED to to get in that role (you know how you are dearies) and some just cringe yet were such good sports to put themselves out there! I do find that people in kechara are willing to put aside personal preferences for a higher cause..and that is most respectable. I am sure you are already having a jolly good time behind the scenes making preparations with these “girlzzzz” for the upcoming KSK charity dinner on 18th July!
    cheers xx

  45. Bonita on Jul 3, 2010 at 10:10 pm

    In Kechara, there’s never a dull moment! It’s full of fun and funny people!!
    The shows kechara put up so far, be it spiritual ‘Legend of The Conch Shell’ or funny witty drag shows, Swan Lake and Supreme in last year’s Starry Starry Night, they always bring tears to our eyes! Either it touches somewhere deep in our hearts or we laughed our hearts out!!!
    These had always been in Kechara, work hard, pray hard and play hard!! Most of all is be ourselves! Dharma is not meant to be boring, it can be fun too!
    I can’t wait to see all of you in full costumes and dancing on the stage once again!
    Wanna Be Girls rock!

  46. Margaret on Jul 3, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    Kechara is a superb spiritual hub. We have everything and anything to bring Dharma into real action.
    When it comes to shedding one’s ego, nothing is as powerful as dressing and dancing as the opposite gender. Or just reveal who you really truely are.
    Tsem Rinpoche always tells us be who you are, but transfrom inside. That’s real Dharma practice. A very powerful statement!!!
    Instead of saying I can’t, I don’t like, I don’t want……… all the time, look at these “Wanna be girls”, they just do it for the sake of Dharma, help raising funds of our Kechara world Peace Center(KWPC).
    They walk the talk!

    OMG! I really think Peter, Chia, Eric Choong, Jo Ang, Ethan and Bryan are really fantastic and I do look up to their courage! With that wig, high heels and lip stick, oh boy! You can kill!!! (Either way la!)
    I just cannot wait till you guys put on the full costumes and perform in the upcoming 18TH JULY 2010, Kechara House DINNER & AUCTION at Sunway Resort Hotel, PJ. This event is organized to raise funds for the renovation of Kechara House new Gompa as well as Kechara Soup Kitchen, which is currently renovating its new premises.

  48. Shirley Tan on Jul 3, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    Rinpoche never pushes us to do things, however bizzare they may be, for no reason. There is always a bigger picture at hand and a higher purpose to fulfill. This is something I learnt very quickly when I joined Kechara. If we do not choose to trust and go along with our Guru, then we lose out. Similar to what Paris wrote earlier – we still remain who we are before the Dharma, still the same angersome, impatient, egoistical maniac who is desperately hanging onto every shred of our delusions and thinking that it is our absolute truth. A real man would not fear to dress down, up or even in drag – because it would not de-stablize him from his manhood. Those who can’t – well, then – it just goes to show how fragile your masculinity and confidence are. In Kechara, men can become girls and girls become men – everything changes and yet nothing changes. Our Guru truly works very hard to liberate us all from the prison of our samsaric mind sets.

  49. David Lai on Jul 3, 2010 at 8:18 pm

    I really like what Paris said earlier about this, because for me, going in drag was a huge ego buster. Just like these ‘girls’, I was one of them performing for last year’s fundraiser – Starry, starry Night. At that time, I was part of the Dream Girls and I was slapped with so much makeup, I think my mum couldn’t even recognised me.
    On top of that, I wore a huge scary wig, a silver dress that is completed with stockings and heels. Everybody laughed when they saw me and I should have loved the attention right? Nope! I looked fat, scary and when I walked out to parade around for donations, I saw Ruby of KSK pointed at me from the corner of my eyes and laughed so loud, I wanted to go back in and hide. I whispered to myself, “This is for KWPC” and let go. I lunged forward and made the most ridiculous moves a drag queen could make. Everybody was amused and some were even shocked.
    What was even funnier was that Rinpoche made a series of cards of us, Dream girls. I cringed when Rinpoche proposed and secretly hoped that he was only kidding. Alas, the cards did come out and it was rather popular for a while but fortunately, the attention eventually died down. I am looking forward to the new girls this year. I heard they are going to have cards of them too!

    From the award-winning ‘Legend of the Conch Shell’ to ‘Wanna Be Girls’ – Kechara House really is amazing when it comes to adapting the spread of dharma in these degenerate times. This first relays to the audience the words of the dharma and the latter displays to the audience the practice of dharma, i.e. cutting down the ego, like how Sharon has cleverly mentioned above.
    FYI, Legend of the Conch Shell won 5 awards!(http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/2010/04/kechara-house-won-5-awards.html)

  53. Jean Mei on Jul 3, 2010 at 10:17 am

    Shave legs, shave face, shave…..armpits. WAX THE WHOLE BODY, I say!! 😛

  54. Paris on Jul 3, 2010 at 6:38 am

    loves it. This is what Dharma is really about:
    1) if you’re an ugly hairy man wanting to channel Stuart Weitzman, you finally get to let your hair down, be yourself and live our your dreams
    2) if you’re an ugly hair man NOT wanting to pretend that you’re a woman in any way, this is the perfect practice to let go of your big fat ego and just be freeeeee
    Either way, you take one step closer to enlightenment.

  55. PGdiamond on Jul 2, 2010 at 1:10 am

    Stunning! And who ever said dharma is boring is wrong. How sporting the “guys” are. This is a dharma practice by itself. Cutting down ego. Come support the “girls” on 18th July at Sunway Resort Hotel. Cant’t wait to see them with full make up on!

  56. Sharon Saw on Jul 1, 2010 at 2:46 am

    I can’t wait for the show!! Earlier this evening, Rinpoche was telling us about how dressing up in drag can be Dharma – basically when we do something out of our comfort zone, it is cutting down our ego. if we can do something and let other people laugh at us, it is cutting down our ego. If we do something which benefits others, it is Dharma. So participating in this fund raising dinner which benefits others is Dharma! Fantastic!
    Please do come support our dinner on 18 July – Contact Cheri at 7880 0189 for table reservations. Look forward to seeing you there!

  57. keng tan on Jun 30, 2010 at 3:55 pm

  58. margaretlee on Jun 30, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    Kechara is really the 21st century Dharma centre who is filled with spiritual talented seekers, we can have so much fun while doing Dharma work together. This is what it is all about, we play hard, we work hard and we pray hard too:-)
    Why not? As long as out motivation is sincere, genuine and good. I love choreographing with them on the dance steps, the “Wanna be Girls” rehearsed 4 hours non stop on their high heels during the 2nd rehearsal!!!! Just to perfect their steps and get used to dance with high heels.
    Please go and support the KWPC fund raising dinner on July 18th at Sunway Resort Hotel.Contact Cheri at 7880 0189 for table reservations. Have a blast at the event and support our hard working “Wanna be Girls”!!!

    Animals are sentient beings who like us have feelings, if we hurt them they feel pain and if we treat them with love and care, they would feel loved. The more we human know about the animals the more we feel how amazing they are.

    In Buddhism, offerings are made to the Triple Gem, giving rise to contemplative gratitude and inspiration. One such offerings such as foods. flowers, and so forth. Reading this post gives us a more understanding of some do’s and don’ts regarding food offerings. Offering food is a meritorious act that also reminds us not to be greedy or selfish.
    GREAT guidance , precious teachings and listening from those videos tell us more. All about making offerings, the importance of our motivation and the results of making offerings to the Three Jewels
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers for this sharing.

    nteresting story of Namkar Barzin who is a worldly Dharma Protector in their own right after being subdued by Domo Geshe Rinpoche. And is part of Dorje Shugden’s entourage whose history goes back to about 90 years ago. Namkar Barzin is the second minister to Dorje Shugden after Kache Marpo. Well known for having the power to protect buildings, institutions, monasteries, and so forth . And also promotes peace, harmony, prosperity and growth as such as powerful in protecting Dharma.
    Interesting read story of how Namkar Barzin became a Minister in the entourage of Lord Dorje Shugden. Rinpoche did composed a prayers to Namkar Barzin feeling strongly connected to him and this will benefit people spiritually.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Astrology is a big influence on our life as it determine certain traits of character that influence our actions. Astrology does have some things in common with religions, such as seeking to understand the greater nature of the universe.

    Well! Tibetan Buddhism astrology goes much further, seeing deep into our soul and the karma you are working through in this life time, and far into the future even to the end of your life’s path.

    Thank you for the interesting sharing and happy to discover the Magical Square system of Tibetan astrology .

    The Chinese concept of yin and yang describes nature in daulities with two opposite, complementary, and interdependent forces. In simple words, two halves balancing together that make a whole. Yin and yang always flows and changes with time. Examining and understanding these patterns in ourselves and around us brings more balance in life. Examining and understanding these patterns in ourselves and around us brings more balance in life. All things carry the yin while embrace the yang. Neutralising energy brings them into harmony. Accepting true constants in life, change and death facts can release us from as much suffering and bring freedom in life. We must remember to let go of the past, and allow life to take its course. To me simplicity, patience, compassion are our greatest treasures. Great quotes.

    Benza Guru Drubtop’ accomplished practitioner from Bhutan who has achieved spiritual realizations due to the recitation of the Padmasambhava Mantra. Previously he was a blind beggar living in the outlying suburbs of Bhutan. To regain his vision, the farmer following the advice of spiritual teachers and decided to recite the Vajra Guru Mantra with which he could improve his eye sight. His faith in Padmasambhava began to emerge and increase. As day and night didn’t make much difference to him and he began to recite the mantra diligently day and night, praying to Guru Rinpoche with great devotion. He eventually achieved an incredible level of realization. After having the vision of Padmasambhava ,he passed away thus fulfilling the prophecy. Inspiring read.

    We build up understanding through our experience in the world. The process of reflection helps us to develop our understanding more deeply . We then could share our intuitive knowledge with others. It provides the opportunity to step back and take a look at what our work means to us. Self-reflection focus our mind and energy makes us a better decision maker.

    King Trisong Detsen (740-798) was the second of the Three Dharma Kings of Tibet He played a pivotal role in the introduction of Buddhism to Tibet and the establishment of the Nyingma. He believed to be an emanation of the bodhisattva Manjushri, that built Samye Monastery the first monastery . King Trisong Detsen aimed to revitalize Tibetan Buddhism so much so arranged a debate known as the Council of Lhasa. The Council of Lhasa, at Samye, was a famous debate, between the Chinese Buddhist monk Moheyan and the Indian Buddhist master Kamalashila. It is also known as the Great Debate, this debate lasted for 2 years. An interesting story behind this long and rancorous debate. The Council of Lhasa is an important event in Tibetan history and shaped the practice of Buddhism in Tibet up until today.

    Coming across this post of suspended coffees truly had me wonder if in Malaysia will come up with this compassionate concept. A suspended coffee is a great way to pay forward for a coffee meant for someone else who cannot afford a warm beverage. Kindness can come in many forms including the purchase of a suspended coffee,
    a very good concept indeed. This is a tradition that comes from Naples, Italy, dated in the 20th century. Buying a cup of coffee for a stranger , who needed it especially during cold nights. A simple act of kindness can change someone’s life. To date, many countries in US and Europe have started these compassion concept and had in fact inspired more. Hopefully one day this will happen in Malaysia .

    n the remote mountain highlands of eastern Tibet, there exists a unique lineage of female spiritual practitioners at Gebchak Gonpa. A nunnery of more than 350 from all the Tibetan schools of Buddhism came to study and practice Dharma, upholding rigorous meditation and yoga practices. Gebchak’s yogini nuns are famed for their accomplishments in profound yogas and meditation. These women have devoted their entire lives to practicing the Dharma. Interesting read of those Gebchak’s yogini nuns lives, as stated in the post.
    Sadly, during the cultural revolution the Gebchak Gonpa was destroyed and the remaining nuns were dispersed. Yet many of them continue preserving their unique female yogic tradition who had survived the Cultural Revolution. Today, new generations of nuns and lamas are preserving Gebchak’s practice lineage rebuilt and re-established Gebchak Gonpa, despite extreme physical hardships.

    Thank you, Mr. Martin, well write-up this article of great-lamas-masters great-masters speak truly all about Tsem Rinpoche. We as students have seen and heard of all Rinpoche wonderful and extraordinary qualities. Rinpoche not only cares and loves all his students and even to strangers as well. Nor matter who you are regardless of race and faith Rinpoche will be too willingly to help. That’s Rinpoche’s nature a Bodhisatva . Rinpoche had made a way from Us to India and then Malaysia just to spread Dharma teachings and nothing else. Rinpoche as advice by his teacher to be in Malaysia and that’s where he established many departments to benefits all sentient beings. Reading through this post tells us all Great Masters, Lamas, Geshes and many highly attained Lamas and Masters specking what is true the same qualities of Rinpoche. Rinpoche was very kind, generous, giving, compassionate, always doing charity, giving to the poor, raising funds, sponsoring. Described Rinpoche as someone highly intelligent and extraordinary person. Interesting read , may more people reading this article to have a clearer view of Rinpoche.
    All I could say is that Rinpoche had showed us the light of life. With folded hands , may we able to meet Rinpoche again in this life and so forth.

    Interesting biography of a great Lama Zanabazar was a renowned painter, sculptor, architect and costume designer. He was known as“Michelangelo of Asia”, for his artistic skills which were matched by his literary prowess as a Buddhist scholar, linguist and poet. Zanabazar as a historical figure played an important role in propagating Buddhism in Mongolia. He had established Mongolian unique cultural identity. Zanabazar was the first Bogd Gegeen or high-saint-of-mongolia or supreme spiritual authority, the Gelugpa lineage of Tibetan Buddhism in Outer Mongolia. He is believed to be a Geluk protagonist whose alliance with the Dalai and Panchen Lamas was crucial to the dissemination of Buddhism in Khalkha Mongolia. Interesting read with all the rare pictures shared.

One of the underrated landmarks in Macau. It is believed that when this statue is built, Macau has become more prosperous, peaceful and economically better. Many locals and tourist visited this beautiful Statue and it’s a popular spot where they will walk along the sea watching sunset. Merely by looking at this Statue is a blessing. Those beautiful pictures tells us all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this 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

    4 yearss 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

    Sandra asked: Respected pastors, When one experiences the outcome of negative karmas, how does one have compassion for oneself and overcome tough times? Relying on buddhas is definitely top of the list but I find my fear and self doubt and bad temper sabotages all the outer dharma practice I do. I am weak in the practical side of applying dharma!
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your question. What you have expressed is something that a lot of people go through, because of the accumulation of negative karma from previous lifetimes. What you must remember is that our negative habitual patterns from previous lives are very strong, hence effort is needed in the spiritual path. That is why Joyous Effort is one of the Six Perfections. Karma, our habitual patterns, fear and self-doubt will try to knock us of the path of self-transformation at every turn until we are strong enough to withstand them. One way to overcome this is to develop strong faith in the Three Jewels, and the way to do this is to engage in the practice of Taking Refuge. I'm not just talking about Talking Refuge at the beginning of formal Dharma practice such as your sadhana or pujas. But actually Taking Refuge remembering the qualities of the Three Jewels. When I first came to Kechara, I had a lot of physical obstacles manifest, a lot of fear and doubt. H.E. Tsem Rinpoche suggested that I read the section of the Lamrim that talks about Taking Refuge, and explains how to do it properly, remembering the qualities of the Three Jewels and the benefits they grant on the spiritual path. When you practice Taking Refuge, you remember these and you contemplate them. Then your faith in the application of the Dharma increases, and your fear, self-doubt, etc, disappear. When that happens, even if your negative karma and habits try to knock you off the path, you find yourself back on the path. Another thing you must remember is that when we are practicing the Dharma, due to our habits, we will not be perfect at something directly after learning about it. It takes time to train ourselves. That is why the central teaching in the Gelug tradition we practice is called the Lamrim, or the Graded Stages on the Path to Enlightenment. It is step-by-step. It is a process. It is not instant. So you shouldn't let fear, self-doubt, etc get in the way. Instead calmly apply the antidote to these, which is strong refuge. When you develop strong refuge, you will have faith and confidence in the teachings. When you have these, you will practice the teachings, no matter what happens. The compassion for yourself and overcoming tough times comes through faith in the Three Jewels and the teachings of self-transformation. I met someone the other day who said self-transformation was not possible for him, but then why did Buddha Shakyamuni and the enlightened beings teach the Dharma? Of course, it is possible, and in order to progress on the spiritual path, you must have faith and conviction. This comes from the simple, yet foundational practice of Taking Refuge. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Sandra asked: Hello respected pastors, I heard once from here that too much mantra recitations produce wind in the body? Did I hear right? What are the repercussions of that? I do find I cough during mantra recitations these days...I only do about 6 malas though!
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your question. Mantras are the form of the enlightened beings in sound. Hence, when you recite mantras they are very powerful. All mantras move the psychic winds in the body. They don't actually produce physical wind in the body. The psychic winds move naturally due to the power of the mantras, and only have a beneficial effect on the body. If you are not initiated into the Higher Yoga Tantra practices, any of the common mantras are fine to recite. These include Lama Tsongkhapa's Migtsema, your Guru's mantra, Chenrezig, Tara, Manjushri, etc. These will move the winds in your body naturally, so there will be no untoward side effect. However, mantras of Higher Yoga Tantra deities, such as Yamantaka, Vajra Yogini, Heruka, etc, should only be known and recited by those who have received initiation into the practice and received the commentary to the practice from a qualified guru. These mantras move the psychic winds in the body more forcefully hence can have negative side effects if not done properly. If you are having any negative effects when reciting mantras, such as coughing, that could be due to a number of other more ordinary reasons, such as reciting too loudly or being out of breath when reciting. When you are reciting mantras during your sadhana, you should only recite loud enough for yourself to hear, and not disturb others if they are around. If you are in a puja, you follow the puja lead to either recite out aloud or quietly. If you are getting out of breath, slow down your mantra recitation, or reduce the amount of mantras you are doing until you are used to it. Then you can slowly increase to however many you want to recite. The main issue is consistency, you should recite mantras as part of your sadhana every day. You can also recite extra mantras throughout the day, but the key is to make sure that you finish your daily sadhana. And you should not rush through your mantra recitation, but recite the mantra clearly. I hope this helps.

    ray asked: Dear Pastors, Thank you for clearing my doubts previously about purification practices. Today i have a question about reciting praises to buddhas, why do we recite praises and how does reciting praises to buddhas like Tara, Dorje shugden etc. help and benefit us? Because ive seen certain prayer texts to mother tara which i think is referring to the 21 tara praises stating that : ~If this prayer is recited two, three, or seven times, It will pacify all the sufferings of torments Caused by spirits, fevers, and poisons, And by other beings as well. If you wish for a child, you will get a child; If you wish for wealth, you will receive wealth. All your wishes will be fulfilled And all obstacles pacified.~ Will reciting praises to buddhas also be able to fulfill our wishes as stated? Thank you very much.
    pastor answered: Dear Ray, Thank you for your question. As I am sure you are aware, there are many different types of prayers. Praises are one type of prayer, or commonly included in longer prayers. When we praise the enlightened beings, we generate merit. This is due to the power of the enlightened beings. Generally speaking these prayers are praises of the qualities of either the enlightened being's body, speech, mind or benefits derived from their practices. Or the praise can be a combination of these. The merit generated from praising an enlightened being is immense. Some prayers even have the power to grant certain specific benefits due to the merits generated from the praise. Hence, some prayers even have the benefits listed in them. So yes, if you recite the praise with strong faith and refuge in the particular enlightened being, you will generate merit which will help to achieve the benefits stated. On a normal level, you will receive the benefits. On a higher level, you create the merit to achieve the same body, speech, mind and qualities of the enlightened being, meaning you create the causes to be enlightened yourself. I hope this helps.

    Eden asked: Dear Pastors, How are all of you doing? I have a few questions here. I will be very grateful if you can answer them. Thank you. 1) If we are here because of our previous life karma, previous previous karma and so on. May i know when does all of this started? How does this chain of karma started? Im sure we all had our 1st life and everything had a beginning to it. 2) I am currently facing some problem over my career pathway, are there any practices and mantras that I can do to request for guidance?
    pastor answered: Dear Eden, Thank you for your questions. 1. Buddhism does not believe in a 1st life, and the reason being is the Buddhist view of time. Most people think of time and existence as linear. It has a definitive starting point and a certain end point. But Buddhism views time as a cyclic. Hence, our universe as we understand it, will at one point cease to exist, and then a new universe will come into existence. However, even though our current universe will end, due to the force of karma and reincarnation, we will take rebirth into the new universe and have many rebirths there. So in Buddhism we say that we have had "countless" rebirths, as you would never be able to count how many lifetimes you have had. This cycle is vicious and leads us to take rebirth endlessly. The only way to stop this cycle is to transcend it altogether, which is the state of Buddhahood, in which you are completely liberated from the cycle, known as "samsara". Also the way in which we think about karma is not linear either. It is not one for one. By this I mean, if you do one negative action, it is not that you will experience only one negative result. You will actually experience many negative results, with differing levels of severity until the karma is exhausted. How you respond to the negative results can lead to either more negative karma, or positive karma. Hence, the law of karma according to the Buddhist view point is much more nuanced then the general understanding of karma that people have these days. The Buddha explained this process in a teaching known as the 12 Links of Dependent Origination, which is quite complex. If you want to learn more about this teaching, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche gave a very profound teaching on it here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/teaching-on-the-twelve-links-of-dependent-origination.html Hence, according to Buddhism, the understand of time is a never-ending cycle in which universes are created, destroyed and created again due to the power of karma. Since it is a cycle, there is no "beginning" or "1st life" for sentient beings. 2. In regards to your career pathway, I would suggest you engage in the combined practice of Lama Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden. We have heard of many people who are either stuck in their career or who need to find good jobs, succeed in the their goals after engaging in this practice with a sincere motivation. There is a book available regarding the practice here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/the-dorje-shugden-handbook. We also have an entire section of this website dedicated to various aspects of the practice, including history, other prayers, etc. (https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/category/dorje-shugden). I hope this helps. Let us know if we can help in any other way.

    Lara asked: Hello pastors, I have a family member suffering from depression right now. May I know how I can help him to overcome this? Thank you.
    pastor answered: Dear Lara, I'm sorry to hear that your family member is going through this. When someone is going through such a difficult time, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has advised that the person themselves seek qualified medical help as well as engage in the practice of Lama Tsongkhapa, which is well-known to help overcome things like depression. From your side you should be as supportive as possible. Take the time to understand what your family member is going through, and in which ways you can support them to overcome their depression and heal. You can watch a fantastic teaching about the practice of Lama Tsongkha here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/sayonara-to-depression.html. The prayer text for the practice can be found here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/sadhana-prayers.html#19 However, sometimes family members may not be open to the engaging in the practice themselves. In that case, you can engage in the practice yourself and dedicate the merits for the family member to heal, but this will not be as effective as the family member doing the practice themselves. Another thing that you can do, it to make abundant offerings or engage in virtuous activities like as helping the less fortunate, and dedicating the merits from those activities to your family member. You can also have pujas sponsored for your family member. The following two pujas would be excellent: Medicine Buddha Puja - which is good for healing, both physical and mental (https://www.vajrasecrets.com/medicine-buddha-puja-fund) Dorje Shugden Puja - to remove obstacles for a swift recovery (https://www.vajrasecrets.com/dorje-shugden-wishfulfilling-puja-fund) These are the various methods in which you can help. You can do just one or a combination of the methods mentioned to generate as much positive energy and merit as possible for your family member. I hope this helps.

    ray asked: hi pastor i have a question regarding purification practices because ive been having some doubts now, is it true that some people say engaging in purification practices bad things would then happen to the practitioner after that? be it being sick or facing obstacles coming after that.
    pastor answered: Dear Ray, Thank you for your question. When we engage in purification practices, what we are purifying is our negative karma. If you know about karma, you know that eventually you will need to experience your karma, be this negative or positive. When you experience your negative karma, then you experience negative situations. This could be something major, like having an accident, to something very minor such as feeling bad if say a loved one says something in a way that you perceive as being negative. Any experience you have that you perceive as negative, is a manifestation of your negative karma. During purification practices, through your own effort of invoking upon the enlightened beings and practice of the Four Opponent Powers, you are able to purify this negative karma. However, for a negative karma to be fully exhausted, you need to experience it. Say you have a karma to get into an accident, if you don't purify and exhaust it, then you will need to suffer from it 100%. This could mean getting into a car accident which is very severe and you are hurt badly. If you engage in purification practices then you can purify, let's say 99% of the karma. But for it to be exhausted fully, you still need to experience it. In this case, maybe you do get into an accident. Since you have purified most of the karma, your car only bumps into another car very softly. You don't even feel it, the person in the other car doesn't feel it and you car is not damaged at all. This is the reason why some people say if you engage in purification practices, bad things will happen. And because of that people are put off doing purification practices. This is wrong thinking because if you do experience negative situations when engaged in purification practices, this could be because: a) What you experienced is actually the purified karma, rather than the full force of the karma. In this case you should rejoice that through your effort of engaging in the practice, you didn't experience something much worse. b) It could just simply be the manifestation of a karma that wasn't purified. This means, you would have had to go through this experience anyway. c) Because you are engaged in purification practices, you are thinking of karma a lot. Therefore, when such experiences occur then you attribute it to karma, and then think it is linked to your purification practice. Then you believe that doing purification practices is bad because you have to suffer from such experiences. This is wrong thinking. Perhaps even if you were not doing purification practices, then you would still experience the situation, but you wouldn't actually think anything of it. You would just go about the rest of your day as usual. That being said, when you are doing purification practices, there comes a point were certain negative karma is so weak that you need to experience it for it to be exhausted completely. This can and does manifest as negative situations, such as minor illnesses, or even accidents, etc. However, the point to remember is the karma causing these situations have been purified so they are very mild compared to their full form. These negative situations can also be purified/exhausted in dreams, etc. Another way they can be purified is having mental disturbances or emotional ups and downs when actually doing the purification practices. In essence, you will need to feel the effects of your negative karma in some form or another, so better that you experience it in a very mild form right? This is what purification practices helps you to do. Purification practices are not something to be scared of. In fact, you should rejoice when engaged in purification practices. On a more deeper level, without some form of purification practice it is hard to understand higher aspects of the Dharma. Your negative karma will block you from being able to understand the Dharma and then internalise it. That is why purification practices are emphasised within each and every tradition and are a prerequisite for higher teaching such as tantra. The benefits of purification practices (such as enabling you to exhaust your negative karma in a very mild form, and preparing your mind for higher teachings) outweighs having to experience a very small negative situation. Therefore think about the benefits of purification practice and contemplate on it. This will help you to develop faith in them and get rid of any doubts or fears that you may have. I hope this helps.

    vikas baluni asked: abut growth of my business
    pastor answered: Dear Vikas Baluni, I am unclear as to the actually meaning of your question but I believe you are asking how to increase and grow your business. According to Buddhism, everything that we go through in life is due to karma, this includes both the good things and the bad things. Therefore, for your business to grow and do well depends on your good karma. Only one type of energy can overcome karma and is always good for your, and that is what we call merit or punya (in sanskrit). So in order to have merit for your business to do well, you have to take actions that generate merit. The main of these is to transform your mind to become a more compassionate and wiser person, to help others less fortunate, to engage in pujas and other such virtuous activities. There are certain deity practices that are well-known in Buddhism to help increase the energies of wealth and success in our lives. These can help your business to grow. Once such practice is that of Bhagawan Gyenze, you can click here to find out more: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/dorje-shugden-gyenze-to-increase-life-merits-and-wealth.html Bhagawan Gyenze will definitely help you to grow your business, if you have a good motivation. If you motivation is only about yourself, then your business will not grow that much. But if you have the motivation help others, then Bhagawan Gyenze will help you even more. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Jason asked: I have been practicing white dzambala and the bathing / water tormas for quite some time now. Recently I have been getting regular dreams where white dzambala appears and just smiles at me, or I dream that I am doing white dzambala chutor practice. I understand that when lama tsongkhapa got dreams of deities he thought that this was Mara acting up and paid no attention to it until his lama said something. My lama is currently on retreat and it is difficult to contact him. Please give me some advice on what is happening. I'm just some normal beginners smuck and I'm getting worried that this is a bad sign. When I wake up I feel at peace... But according to commentaries this could be Mara.
    pastor answered: Dear Jason, Thank you for your question. I am really happy to hear that you are engaging in Dzambhala's practice. It's extremely beneficial. You are right that Lama Tsongkhapa ignored his dreams of deities, and viewed them as bad signs. But before jumping to conclusions, we must analyse the reasons why Lama Tsongkhapa ignored not only his dreams, also the visions of the deities he received. The reason that Lama Tsongkhapa did not consider it a positive sign is because as practitioners on the spiritual path, it is all too easy to get carried away with 'signs' or advice, visions, dreams from supposed deities. Sometimes if we 'analyse' them it can lead us in the wrong direction because of our mistaken understanding. Sometimes, other entities can also enter our dreams and tell us things that we believe, hence we start practising things that are not Dharmic in nature. Lama Tsongkhapa warned against such things, rather Lama Tsongkhapa said that we should rely on the Dharma teachings that are genuine and transmitted to us through an unbroken line through our lineage. Generally speaking however, these dreams you are having are literally just dreams, so there is nothing to worry about. One category of dreams we have are known as samsaric dreams. These arise from karma and karmic traces in the mind. This can also include emotions, memories, etc. The meaning we find in these dreams are imputed by the dreamer, and not inherent in the dream. This also applies to waking life. We impute meaning onto situations and circumstances, rather than the meaning being inherent to the circumstance. It is like reading a book. Words in the book are just marks on paper, however, because we use our sense of meaning, we make a meaning out of it. However, this is always open to interpretation. For example, if you tell your dream to two people, they can interpret the meaning very differently, even though you told them the exact same details. When we have dreams such as of our teacher, our practice, the Buddhas, etc., it is still more than likely to be just a samsaric dream. Because we have been engaging in sustained practice, or have imprints from previous lives, these can surface in our dreams hence we have dreams of Buddhas, our teachers, etc. There is nothing to worry about or to consider overly auspicious or a 'sign'. Just realise that you have had the dream, do not allow your thoughts to dwell on it, accept it and move on. However, do take note that you had these dreams and once your Guru is out of retreat, please consult your Guru and inform him/her of these occurances and seek your Guru's advice if any. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Jason asked: I white dzambhala is a wealth deity but can he also act as a dharma protector?
    pastor answered: Dear Jason, Thank you for your question. The practice of Dzambhala is actually a Yidam practice, this means that Dzambhala is a meditational deity. When you engage in his practice, as well as bestowing wealth, through his practice you also develop qualities that help you progress towards enlightenment. In the case of Dzambhala, the primary quality he helps you develop is actually generosity, which is one of the Six Perfections. Therefore, although he is known as a wealth deity, he is much, much more than that. When you engage in his practice, you are actually developing virtuous qualities in your mindstream. The function of Dharma Protectors however is to remove obstacles and to create conducive conditions so that you can transform your mind. Hence, the function of a meditational deity and a Dharma Protector is different. That being said, when you engage in Dzambhala's practice properly, you do gain wealth. Generally, we only consider this wealth to be external wealth, but Dzambhala's practice is more than that, because through his practice you gain internal wealth which are virtuous qualities. Due to the fact his practice also brings material wealth, he is known as a wealth deity. When you practice any meditational deity, you will gain some physical benefit as well, which can seem to mirror the effect of Dharma Protectors, but their function is very different. Dzambhala for example grants material wealth, but his actually function is to increase inner wealth. Another example would be Medicine Buddha, outward he heals our physical body, but inwardly he also helps to heal our minds and develop qualities such as compassion. Dharma Protectors can also help to heal our body, but for real internal change, we need to rely on a meditational deity. I hope this answer helps.

    ray asked: Dear pastors, i have a question regarding vajra and bells. can one use them if they do not have any sort of initiation or whatsoever?
    pastor answered: Dear Ray, Thank you for your question. You are right that traditionally vajras and bells are only used after receiving initiation. However, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche recommended learning how to use the vajra and bell, as a means of creating the causes to receive initiation in the future. That said, there are many dos and don'ts related to using the vajra and bell. You can learn not only how to use them, but also vajra and bell etiquette from one of Kechara's Pastors. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Sandra asked: Respected pastors, Do you recommend doing Tsem Rinpoche’s guru yoga as part of daily Sadhana? I am sure I read on the article for the name retreat that it could be done as daily prayers but now I can’t see that sentence? Thank you.
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Yes of course, you may include Tsem Rinpoche's Guru Yoga as part of your daily sadhana if you wish. This creates a very strong bond with Tsem Rinpoche. If you are following the Diamond Path sadhana (https://www.vajrasecrets.com/diamond-path), you insert the Guru Yoga after you have completed the Gaden Lhagyama (Guru Yoga of Lama Tsongkhapa). Alternative, if you are using a different prayer text, you insert the Guru Yoga after Gaden Lhagyama, or before any deity prayers that you do such as Manjushri, Tara, etc. After you complete the deity practice section of your sadhana, you continue on to your Dharma protector practice, and finish with your completion dedication. I hope this helps. Do let us know if this is not clear. Thanks.

    Sandra asked: Respected pastors, Can a lay person work towards the preliminary practices by accumulating daily ? Many thanks.
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Yes, of course. Anyone can engage in the preliminary practices, you don't have to be ordained in order to do so. However for one's practice to be considered a full preliminary practice, you need to do 100,000 repetitions of whichever practice you are engaged in without break. That means you must engage in at least one session a day, until the count is completed. 10% of the count is also added on top, to make up for any unintentional mistakes. So the figure would actually be 110,000. If you skip a day, that means you have broken your preliminary retreat. If this occurs you can still dedicate the practice you have done so far, and you will still benefit from the merit generated and the purification of negative karma from the practice, but it is not counted as a full preliminary practice. Also you must adhere to the retreat procedures for the duration of the time it takes you to complete the particular preliminary practice. For example, an altar with daily offerings, retreat seat with swastika, refraining from eating black foods, etc. This may not be convenient for most people in our day and age. So what you can do is to spend a certain amount of time accumulating a specific figure, for example 10,000 repetitions of a particular practice. Seal the practice at the end with a strong dedication, like the King of Prayers. Later on, you can repeat the procedure more times until you complete 100,000. This method was given by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche for modern-day practitioners who do not have the time to complete 100,000 in one go. While it technically does not constitute a full preliminary retreat, you still gain immense merits and purification from engaging in the practice, even if spaced out. As Rinpoche said, it's better for you to do mini preliminary retreats than not doing any of the preliminary practices whatsoever. That being said, if you do have the ability to do a full preliminary retreat and it will not negatively impact you, such as create financial difficulties or strain familial relationships, then of course go ahead! To have the sincere wish to engage in any Dharma practice is wonderful. You can read more about the individual preliminary practices here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/preliminary-practice.html You can watch a short teaching on the preliminary practices by H.E.

The global pandemic hasn't been easy for all of us. Some find it diffucult to find a job to support the family. Despite that, we are still delivering basic food pack to our recipients nationwide. Thank you to our volunteers, donors, and sponsors. Without your support, we would be unable to reach out to many families. 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

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - 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

Amongst all pujas, the fire puja is considered the king of all Pujas. It is the most powerful of all pujas within Tibetan Buddhism and its purpose is basically to remove all obstacles and its stains to enlightenment.
