The Chinese Zodiac

Jan 10, 2014 | Views: 1,074,017

Discover more about yourself according to ancient Chinese tradition

Every individual’s personality has a centered “self” and many layers around it. Each layer has a different size, texture and aura, and when combined, it makes up who the person truly is. The Chinese Zodiac or Chinese Horoscope uses details of your birth to determine your basic personality traits, strengths, weaknesses, your compatibility with other people and even to forecast your future.

Chinese Horoscopes may not have any religious basis. However, if it’s based on 5,000 years worth of human observation, similar trends can be found. It is the culmination of 5,000 years of observation by the ancient Chinese scholars to culminate into the analysis of each sign. Some are very accurate. Observation is the best way to gather information.

It is always interesting and entertaining to read about yourself, your good points and your horoscoped weaknesses. I guess knowing more about yourself will help you to work on what you need to work on. It is nice to know who you can work, partner, and be friends with… also who you would find some conflict with perhaps. Of course getting along and not getting along ultimately relies on you. But it is interesting to see who you have ‘natural’ conflicts with if no efforts were made towards the relationship. It is also interesting to share with friends personality traits of people you would like to understand more about. It is always nice to have a some lead in order to find a beginning in our relations with others.

Elements
The 5 elements – Metal, Water, Wood, Fire, Earth – are an integral part of the Chinese Zodiac which define a universal balance. Every one of us are made up of these elements and are deeply connected to them. A person’s characteristics are determined both by the ruling element of their sign as well as the element of the year of their birth.

Rising Sign
One of factors that affects a person’s characteristics is the time of birth. E.g. A Rooster born in the hour of the Ox will have a different personality compared to a Rooster born in the hour of the Snake. The sign related to the hour of birth is called the Rising Sign, and the individual will experience the effect of the Rising Sign in various degrees.

Chinese Horoscopes may not have any religious basis. However, if it’s based on 5,000 years worth of human observation, similar trends can be found. It is the culmination of 5,000 years of observation by the ancient Chinese scholars to culminate into the analysis of each sign. Some are very accurate. Observation is the best way to gather information.

The Chinese Lunar horoscope is different from the Western zodiac. The year you are born in isn’t the only thing taken into consideration, but also the month you were born, the time of your birth and your Western zodiac sign.

It is always interesting and entertaining to read about yourself, your good points and your horoscoped weaknesses. I guess knowing more about yourself will help you to work on what you need to work on. It is nice to know who you can work, partner, and be friends with… also who you would find some conflict with perhaps. Of course getting along and not getting along ultimately relies on you. But it is interesting to see who you have ‘natural’ conflicts with if no efforts were made towards the relationship. It is also interesting to share with friends personality traits of people you would like to understand more about. It is always nice to have a some lead in order to find a beginning in our relations with others.

I thought this section on horoscopes would keep you coming back for further contemplations and it’s always interesting to find out more about others. Horoscopes should not be used as a weapon or be fixed. Whatever personalities are described of each sign has many mitigating factors and everything can be changed or overridden with patience, kindness, understanding and good old fashioned sincerity for others. Do not think whatever a horoscope says is fixed or permanent. It is a general guide to start from somewhere but don’t be stuck where it is… nothing is stagnant. For example Snakes do not get along with Boars according to the horoscopes… But they can get along if they work at it. Horoscopes help you find ahead of time what we need to be aware of with other I guess.

Do take a look below to see which animal sign you are… It will lead to interesting discussions, ideas, and introspection’s. Have fun and enjoy. I put it here for my blog friends to enjoy… so please enjoy and share with others!!!

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

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

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

    The Chinese zodiac is an important factor to the Chinese culture where each year is represented by one of twelve animals. In the following order where Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and comes the Pig. The signs have been used for a very long time as a way of dating years in a 12-year cycle of the Chinese calendar. The importance of the zodiac to the Chinese culture is that the animal signs have been used in stories and folklore. This calendar can be traced back to the 14th century B.C. A zodiac system has existed in Chinese culture for more than 2,000 years ago. Recording to myths the first Chinese emperor, in 2637 B.C. invented the Chinese lunar calendar. In Chinese culture, the zodiac can be used to determine our fortune for the year. Over time the zodiacs became more and more integrated into everyday life, with different meanings and characteristics assigned to each animal. Interesting article where we could learn and understand of ourselves , just by clicking those button as mentioned in the blog. There’s many information from understanding of each zodiac such as a personality, fortune, compatibility, even to forecast your future and so forth. That’s wonderful at least we could somehow know where we stand and improve our weakness point.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writer team for this interesting article.

  7. Mohan magar on Jan 17, 2019 at 8:32 am

    It is really helpful to understand something deep about ourself which we can feel ,but can’t get word to explain it…..

  8. Sofi on Dec 7, 2018 at 2:58 am

    Ancient Chinese had always relied on astrology for the success of their activities. Even now, many Chinese still seek answers in astrology that sometimes it becomes overboard. No matter what the results may be, we still need to put in the effort to make it successful as nothing will come out of nothing. Thank you for this interesting post that can serve as guidance.

  9. Wah Ying on May 23, 2018 at 12:30 am

    It’s always worth spending more time and effort to know yourself better: your strength and weakness, so to live up a better version of you. As many saying the worst enemy is always you yourself, you can’t get anywhere in life, because you keep getting in your own way. All of the troubles you are encountering arise from your own actions. Before conquer the external world, you have to master the inner world of your mind… Thank you Rinpoche and writer team for this article.

  10. Alice Tay on May 19, 2018 at 2:41 am

    It is very interesting by just entering our birth information and it will calculate our Chinese sign, elements, protectors and etc. This Chinese Horoscopes may not have any religious basis. Anyone can try for it and look for the best solution to improve / change ourselves for better future.

  11. Stella Cheang on Feb 4, 2018 at 7:20 pm

    We were very familiar with the Chinese Zodiac horoscope from young because the adults would always mention the zodiac sign of the year especially as Chinese New Year approached. It seemed, to me, the zodiac sign of the year, when collaborated with the zodiac sign of individuals, would produced different effect through out the year. It was very fascinating because it foretold surprises, as well as good and bad fortunes.

    As I grew older, I realised that the Zodiac Horoscope is a combination of science, maths and human observation. By learning more about personality of each sign based on the birth year, month, day and hour, we get a glimpse of the unique characteristic of a person, perhaps someone whom we can get to know better and work closely with.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and team for this fancy calculator for us to plot our Chinese Zodiac Horoscope sign with matching western horoscope as a side reference. It is interesting information.

  14. Fong on Dec 21, 2017 at 11:14 am

    Nothing is set in stone. Even though I was very fascinated with the zodiac and let it dictate my life and felt that it was unavoidable, I now know that nothing is permanent. As the saying goes, this too shall pass. We can purify any negative karma if we work at it and do our purification practices. So, we can read the zodiac but know that the future is in our hands. We just have to know what to do. That’s where the Guru or teacher comes in. We have to have faith and confidence in the real guru after we have checked out the Guru and work at the practices that were clearly given to us.

  20. Li Kheng on Dec 30, 2015 at 2:27 am

    Horoscopes have a big influence on our life as it determine certain traits of character that influence our actions – and hence our results as well. I think everyone kind of knows this. However, what I learn from Rinpoche is that although our traits have taken some form, we can still change our fate and destiny by conscious choices and consistent effort.

    So, it is good to know our stars but knowledge should not stop there but expand to learning how to work our stars to create the most beneficial results

    Chinese astrology is a great topic to research if on an extended visit to China. You will have great fun and perhaps get sufficient insight to get you thinking about your life and goals.

  24. Pastor Han Nee on May 30, 2015 at 3:02 pm

    If it’s got 5000 years of wisdom behind it, it’s something to think abut. From the Zodiac table , you can at least make calculated guesses on how to get round a business partner or how to work to a certain extent to effect a smoother more successful relationship with the partner of your choice.

    If you have dharma as well, then it helps you to see when these calculated guesses and moves do not turn out according to your expectations.To see and to accept.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

  30. Wan Wai Meng on Mar 19, 2014 at 6:42 pm

    I think that a Buddha probably transcends all kinds of zodiac signs and is not limited by the limitations of each animal. Still 5000 years of observations there is some truths to , may not be absolute but there are many parallels that makes sense to the ordinary person.

    This part of the blog is only available because of the hard work of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and the E-Division Team. It is extremely fun to see how the Zodiac influences my personality. Although some of the points are inaccurate (Probably because I, myself, am quite an irregular person), most of the points are quite true to me.

    There is so much hard work at play here and I must congratulate those involved as those involved in the creation of this section has created the causes to satisfy people’s thirst for information and superstition. I rejoice! A lot of merit is gained by this action.

    This is a very interesting site. I used to read the short horoscope daily from newspaper. Now, this is another way for me to read my horoscope online! Yes!

    Rinpoche has indicated that though chinese horoscopes may not have any religious basis, but it is based on 5,000 years worth of human observation by ancient chinese scholars. The culmination into the analysis of eachsign for some can be very accurate, but Rinpoche did caution that the result of such prediction should not be taken as ‘fixed’ or permanent, as nothing is permanent. Each personality sign has mitigating factors and everything can be overriden with patience, kindness, understanding and good old fashion sincerity for others. Nevertheless, just take it with a pinch of salt for fun and easy reading and enjoy it as entertainment.

    This particular page on Chinese Zodiac definitely has improved signficantly as compared to my last visit. Now this page is very user friendly and whatever information that we need pertain to the Chinese Zodiac is just within a click of a button on the main page itself, be it the relationship 2 different chinese zodiac, or the relationship between the Chinese and Western Zodiac on the month that we were born.

    Many thanks to the efforts from E-Division that make Chinese Zodiac fun to learn :D.

    This is a very comprehensive writeup. Thank you to all involved in this effort. You must have done alot of research to be able to come up with all these information. Even navigation is easy.

    Very often i refer back to this blog post after meeting someone new. It is akin to looking at the shape of the spout of a teapot and you will know how best to pour the tea without spilling it. When you know of a person’s strength and weaknesses, you will know how best to harness their strength while helping them improve their weaknesses.

    Having said that, these facts are basic characteristics of people in general. Their personality and perspective changes after they receive dharma knowledge. So I would use these information wisely and not blindly.

  62. Li Kheng on Jul 11, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    What I like most about this horoscope is: it gives us a general idea about our natural tendencies but it also proposes efforts we can consciously make to overcome the “weakness” we may possess. This is very typical of Tsem Rinpoche where I learn that we have the power to make a change.

    I remember that Karma Chart that Tsem Rinpoche created where Rinpoche showed us that the choices we make and the action we take can cause a change to our so called destiny. For example, we can engage in purification acts like consistent daily sadhana, puja etc. to purify our negative karma (black karma). This approach to viewing karma is very empowering because we do not just say: oh, it is my karma to be lazy…it is my karma to be a failure etc. If we view karma the way Tsem Rinpoche has taught us, we can say: yes, I must have very strong imprints of laziness due to habituation from past lives. However, if I practice moral discipline and develop the new habit of being hardworking, I can collect the merits to purify my negative karma and cause the creation of positive karma.

    Thank you Rinpoche for always giving us the opportunity to learn and be better.

  63. henry ooi on Jul 11, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    Rinpoche’s blog has so many interesting reads. So many information are available just on this post. In the past I have read the characteristics of animal signs and find them fascinating. This post provides me with more information and knowledge.

    Interesting Chinese zodiac sign to discover & learn! Every year before or during CNY, especially among Chinese would love to get their fate predicted reading their Chinese zodiac sign. Thank you E-division team for all the handwork on research and write up. I enjoy it a lot.

  67. Wan on Jun 26, 2012 at 4:57 am

    i share this site with my friend and we are fascinated with what it say and could not stop to try on the birthday of people whom we know..

    Thank you for sharing the chinese Zodiac which we can learn and use it to improve our weak points.

  68. Joy on Jun 21, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    This is such an awesome section in the blog because like it or not, we love to read about our characters and other people’s. This is not superstitions…it is ancient science which has been around for ages and practised in many cultures. It is a guideline for us to gauge and learn about ourselves and others so we can get along better or better yet induced with Dharma… to help the other person better. Perhaps if we know that particular person’s qualms and quirks… we can better serve/benefit them 😉

    The blog team worked really really hard in researching and writing and creating this whole section up!!! Thank you selfless ppl. And thank you Rinpoche!

  69. nicholas on Jun 18, 2012 at 11:50 am

    Knowing the characteristic our Zodiac sign and others not just about knowing it for personal advice but it’s also to understand others and how we can get and work together to achieve harmony.

    Thanks Rinpoche for this great sharing.

  70. Shin Tan on Jun 17, 2012 at 11:58 am

    Thank you for this simple and easy “just click” app. Now I can be a fake feng shui/ astrologer and dispense zodiac advice. Hehehe (kidding!)

    The Chinese Zodiac (生肖), is a system that relates each year to an animal and its reputed attributes, according to a 12-year mathematical cycle and is popular in several East Asian countries such as China, Korea and Japan.

    Its fantastic how horoscopes can teach people to be better, kinder, less angry, more patient etc…. what a great tool to impart good human values on others!

    The writers really worked super hard on this – researching, comparing notes, writing etc… without the content, would be nothing to talk about! They did it uncomplainingly, lead by Jean Mei, who worked overtime to pull the content together. The only thing we could not write original content for is the Daily Horoscopes… I do hope someday that there will be an astrologer among us who is able to do this pro bono!

  78. Ethan Chu on Sep 21, 2011 at 8:22 pm

    The e-division has been working tirelessly for this new function to come out. and they did it!!! Great work guys!

    The horoscope reading is amazingly accurate. Fun! Been reading on my friends’ horoscope. Great guidelines to learn how to communicate effectively with my friends.

    Effective communication is important because many problems are created from miscommunication. It’s part of practising dharma to put in the effort to understand another person.

  86. Steve Tobias on Sep 20, 2011 at 12:43 am

    Thanks you for the incredible tales of Ji Gong, I truly enjoyed knowing the actual monk in picture. Ji Gong symbolised hope and kindness of dharma to the poor and underprivileged, the spirit of Ji Gong will continue to survive through time because nothing could destroy that.

    I had fascinated watching a number of movies that had related Ji Gong kindness, compassion and his skillful actions that had such a large influence in the world and that until today.

    Dorje Shugden was one of their main protector practices and considered an emanation of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion. There has been an unbroken tradition of the practice of Dorje Shugden as an enlightened protector since early 1700 till now. We are fortunate we learn, practice of purifying, pacifying and removing obstacles and illnesses. All thanks to our Lama Tsem Rinpoche, bringing the practice to Malaysia. Dorje Shugden had been propitiated by Sakya lineage 18th centuries ago. Dorje Shugden has been viewed as an Enlightened Protector. Evidence from the Sakya throne holders themselves, who are the holders of the Sakya tradition’s most precious Tantric transmission.
    comes from none other than the Sakya throne holders themselves, who are the holders of the Sakya tradition’s most precious Tantric transmission. The Sakya lineage holders are considered to be emanations of Avalokiteshvara and Manjushri, and their family lineage is regarded as divine. They had propitiated Dorje Shugden as a fully enlightened being and composed a praise to him. This prayer has since achieved prominence and is still widely used today.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing as it is marvelous to read that the supreme Dharmapala, Dorje Shugden is none sectarian. As confirmed by the 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen (1871 – 1935) who wrote,
    The Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden Tsel definitively is Avalokiteshvara.

    Beautiful White Tara paintings by a very talented artist indeed . Love those paintings , merely looking at it is a blessing. Each of those paintings has it unique way which tells us a thousand words. White Tara is associated with maternal compassion and healing. In many representations, she has eyes in the palms of her hands and on the soles of her feet, as well as in the center of her forehead, representing her power to see those who are suffering and offer her aid.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing and explaining all about it for us to understand better.

    It is quite sad to know the condition of our Earth. Pollution essentially affects the quality of human life than one can imagine. The resources earth provides us are limited. They are blessings which we do not count.

    All these are mainly caused by human activities which harm the environment. It works in mysterious ways, sometimes which cannot be seen by the naked eye. Human has become selfish and is utilizing the earth’s resources at a instant rapid rate to enjoy privileges however forgotten on the effect of it in long run.

    Earth is a privilege given to us by nature and it’s our responsibility to protect it . Our well
    being solely depends on this. We should create awareness and start taking action to help our mother nature instead of looking for another earth. However, this is soon going to be our reality if we do not save the earth now.

    Revisit this incredible sharing of the history of Bhutan and the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Bhutan a beautiful landlocked country have been long connected with Dorje Shugden ever since the days of 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche Jetsun Jigme Norbu long and established tradition in Bhutan. Bhutan recognizes Buddhism as the state’s “spiritual heritage,” provides for freedom of religion, and bans discrimination based on religious belief. Buddhism was first introduced to Bhutan in the 7th century by Guru Padmasambhava. The Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal is considered to be the founder of modern day Bhutan. Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal was notable Drukpa Kagyu masters of this nation advocated the practice of the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. These goes back to the time of the 3rd Drubwang Tenzin Zangpo from the incarnation lineage where he had authored part of an early propitiation text to Dorje Shugden. Followed by the 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu, from the reincarnation lineage of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, also included extensive prayers to Dorje Shugden in his collected works. Interesting findings the Gyalwang Drukpas are considered to be emanations of Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion. All liturgies to Dorje Shugden can be found in the collected works of prominent high lamas whose incarnation lineages are deeply linked with the very fabric of Bhutan’s history. The 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche Jetsun Jigme Norbu is highly attained and cannot be wrong about Dorje Shugden. The 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu’s autobiography tells all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing. May more and more people know the truth the very truth and realised that Dorje Shugden is not evil but a very powerful dharma protector. The practice of Dorje Shugden is indeed very beneficial which had been practiced centuries ago.

    Great reading this post by Martin Desai of Huffington Post that brought out the truth of the illegal ban to the world. Huffpost an American news aggregator and blog, with localized and international editions, publishing a fair and logical article on the religious discrimination issue. It’s the Dorje Shugden controversy that’s have been going on along long time ago. For over more than 20 years Dorje Shugden people had been suffering from discrimination and segregation for their practice. Thank you Martin Desai for high lighting this injustice issue and sharing it is to the world. Thank you Huffington Post for publishing. Those who practice Dorje Shugden are being denied of service from hospitals and clinics. Some even are not allowed to work in government sectors. There’s more proof to support that it has happened like checking into hotel as in this post . Reading this article will tell all.

    GREAT NEWS…..Jewish priests are promoting vegetarianism to their followers . Most modern-day Jews are not vegetarian. Following a vegetarian diet are varied but include health benefits, such as reducing life threading diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and some cancers disease. Vegetarians appear to have lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and lower rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes . That’s very true. By not eating meat one helps to discourage the cruel treatment of animals such as cows, pigs, chickens, and other animals on factory farms for consumption. One also helps to improve the environment, insofar as factory farms are major sources of water and air pollution, including gasses that contribute to global warming. By not eating meat one helps oneself, since a vegetarian diet is far healthier for humans than a diet based on meat. Jewish Vegetarian Society and others did the right approach to values of compassion for animals, protection of the environment, and concern for health reasons and spiritual well-being.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing on behalf of those animals who cannot speak for themselves.

    John Shelby Spong an American bishop of the Episcopal Church. A liberal Christian theologian, religion commentator, and author, spoke bravely of what he thought of the Christian belief away from theism and traditional doctrines. To some Christians, Bishop John Shelby Spong was a heretic. Entrusted with defending the faith, he dismissed notions of the resurrection of Jesus that have been foundations of Christianity for centuries. Bishop Spong came to believe that insistence on an inerrant, literal view of the Bible obscures truth and destroys faith. He was an outspoken leader who believed that faith and worship should be open to marginalised groups. He sermonize a powerful message of love and justice that would resonate in an increasingly secular age. He gain international fame while writing more than two dozen books, appearing on TV shows as well. He was the recipient of three honorary awards to date before his passing. Interesting read .

    Thank you for sharing the wonderful experience of making the wealth vase and the wealth box. A Wealth Box represents the divine abode of the wealth deities.

    It is quite a task to complete this as it requires a lot of effort and energy to input into the various collection of materials to complete the wealth vase and the wealth box.

    I had a lot information about this beneficial ritual which generates the energy to acquire resources for the proliferation of Dharma.

    Very exciting news! H E kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s incarnation is back. This young incarnation pay a visit to Trode Khangsar Chapel and makes offerings of gold to Djorje Shugden. This 350-year-old Trode Khangsar chapel was built and dedicated to Dorje Shugden the Powerful Dharma Protector. Offering gold to sacred images is a very traditional Tibetan method of paying homage to holy images. Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s previous lives were great masters, scholars and practitioners of Dorje Shugden. He held on strongly to his faith, devotion and respect for the Dorje Shugden. It is indeed inspiring to read and know that great masters are coming back. It brings so much hope and deepens faith that these Tulkus are back, life after life. As claimed by the Tibetan leadership that anyone practicing Dorje Shugden one will take rebirth into the lower realms. That’s wrongly says . Interesting post.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

Not for me as I do have Ds pendant with me and chanting Mantras helps me. Most hotels do have special unwanted guests . I did experienced this before while staying in old hotels .

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.
    5 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

All attendees are paying homage to Rinpoche and Buddhas before the start of our weekly Dorje Shugden puja. Outwardly, it seems that Dorje Shugden helps practitioners overcoming their obstacles and problems but ultimately Dorje Shugden’s supreme purpose is to help practitioners on their path to Enlightenment. Do join in our weekly DS puja, every Saturday @3 pm at Jalan Seang Tek, Penang. ~by Jacinta

We are in the third week of Ramadan this year, and kind volunteers have never failed to feed people in need since Tengku Zatashah started this meaningful #zerofoodwastage initiative in 2016. The aim is to benefit the underprivileged with nice surplus food collected from Ramadan buffets. Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families. THANK YOU, Tengku, dedicated volunteers and hotel partners, for making this Ramadan special for the underprivileged. #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment - KSK @ Vivian

In 2021, we've encountered far too many challenges—Pandemic, months-long lockdown, landslide, and flood. We are proud to witness Malaysians helping one another as these agonies come sequentially. Looking back to 2021, Kechara Soup Kitchen has made significant progress, with more to come in 2022. Every year, we move a little closer to our vision. We are immensely thankful to have such dedicated teams of volunteers willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Not to mention our sponsors and donors; none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for helping the underprivileged to a better future. Have a blessed year ahead from our hearts to your hearts. #2022 #newyear #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment

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