Kechara Presents: The Cranberries

Apr 12, 2012 | Views: 1,841

On 4th April 2012, the Irish rock band The Cranberries performed for the very first time in our country.  Personally, I do not know much about them or their songs, but I have heard a few of their well known debuts and I know for a fact that they were quite a popular group in the nineties.

One of my close students and liaisons, JP Thong, had been exploring the possibility of organizing concerts to raise funds for our charitable organization, Kechara. After much research and studies, JP decided to organize and invest into bringing The Cranberries concert to Malaysia.

JP teamed up with his friends whom he has known for many years, who worked for Wonderland Artistry and Sevent Media. Between them, they formed a team to manage the concert. 

JP has no experience whatsoever in running a concert, however he quickly learned the ropes during meetings with the team, from concept making, marketing, finances to promotion and event management.

Wow! I am impressed and very touched by JP’s initiative and effort to raise funds for Kechara for dharma to spread! JP has always been very kind and generous, and always wants to make sure I am okay. Thank you JP.

The concert was officially announced on 7th February 2012 in the Star newspaper and tickets were on sale starting 13th Feb 2012. The main sponsor was Celcom along with other sponsors such as Moocow, Hilton KL, radio stations MIX fm, Lite fm, 988 fm, TV stations NTV7, Channel E and DIVA.

Kechara’s very own video production house did the post-production for the TV commercials on NTV7, Channel E and DIVA as well as the thank you video loop that played in the stadium before the concert started, and Captiv8, also helmed by Kecharians, designed the flyers, posters and other collaterals, such as the poster above.

This marked the very first time in history that Kechara is organizing a concert of such scale. And I am most proud of our very own Kecharians who produced such remarkable work at an international standard for an international act. 

 

The concert begins to a full house!

 

The concert turned out to be a success!  JP’s hard work and effort paid off, the stadium was full with screaming fans and I sent a group of hard working Kecharians and volunteers down to The Pit with special passes, where they rocked and partied along with hard core Cranberries fans as the band belted out their famous tunes like Dreams, Ode to my family, Linger and Zombies!

The Liaisons, Heads of Department and other Kechara staff also took a well-deserved break from work and headed down to support the concert. All of them had so much fun, even KB and my other Nepali boys and the chef Levi were seen dancing away! Hehe…

 

Kecharians in The Pit! 

 

The lead singer Dolores O’Riordan has a very unique voice, and it is no surprise that the Irish band has collected many fans over the years!  I was also very happy to find out that she is a vegetarian. She says: “I do not eat meat, so garlic is a pleasure for vegetarians”. Its nice when celebrities use their fame to support a greater cause.  

 

I was very pleased to learn that Dolores O’Riordan, the lead singer of The Cranberries is a full-time vegetarian!

 

The party did not end there. My close student Ethan Chu teamed up with Chalk and Lah Lah Land to throw a tribute after-concert party to The Cranberries at Bakita, Changkat Bukit Bintang. Quite few people including many Kecharians got together, DJed, danced… and Kecharians sure know how to party! Hehe…

It was nice to see the Kecharians get together to support our very own event and having so much fun at the same time, all with the motivation of supporting the organization and making dharma grow. It really breaks the conventional way of thinking that being Buddhist is all just about chanting and meditation and dry scriptural study.  Kecharians had proven that being spiritual can still be lots of fun as it is for a greater purpose. 

I am so so proud of my people and of what they can do when they put their minds to it. I congratulate JP for his effort and hard work in making the concert a success, the departments who were involved in the work behind the scenes, and the students and friends who supported the event. I sincerely thank you all for supporting Kechara.

KUALA LUMPUR – The famous rock alternative band from Ireland, The Cranberries was not disappointing when they successfully entertained about 8,000 fans at their first concert in this country at Stadium Negara here yesterday.

According to the singer of The Cranberries, Dolores O’Riodan, she was honoured to be able to hold their first concert in Malaysia and was touched with the fans’ response here after the band was formed since about 20 years ago.

“The response from fans here was really great although the weather is not as hot in Ireland. Thank you for your support because after a long time The Cranberries was formed then only now we had a chance to hold a concert here,” she said at the concert.

The highlight of the concert was when The Cranberries sang their 18th song entitled Zombi which is their most popular song when all the fans waved their hands while singing along.

Besides that song, they also sang their popular songs like Just My Imagination, Salvation, Promises, Ode To My Family, Animal Instinct, Raining In My Heart, Ridiculous Thoughts, Can’t Be With You, Free To Decide and When You’re Gone.

    Dear Rinpoche, I know that The Cranberries did perform in Malaysia and the one didn’t know before I read this article is that Kechara organize this concert. It’s so amazing! The only song and the song I love from The Cranberries is ZOMBIE! I love that song. I love Rinpoche

  2. Jean Mei on Jan 31, 2013 at 12:16 am

    The Cranberries threw a really good concert that night! I went there with the Ladrang staff and we all really enjoyed ourselves.

    To be honest, the first thought upon walking into the stadium was, “My goodness, Kechara really can do anything”. JP is a risk taker, but nonetheless it always seems to pay off. He always sees things on a bigger scale, and for this concert his hardwork really paid off.

    Imagine, a rock band The Cranberries and Kechara in collaboration. Something new for a Buddhist organization? Just another day in a Tsem Rinpoche Buddhist Organization 😛

  3. HelenaC on Aug 2, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    The Cranberries, they are superb and awesome. after so many years they are still sooooooooooo good!!!

  4. Alan Chan ( KSJC ) on Jul 2, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    Congratulation to JP to make it the event a success. you really inspire me a lot to make it happen for Kechara. It is really mission impossible for raise fund to Kechara. Thank you JP

  5. Cynthia Ng on Jun 18, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    Yeah! I enjoyed the concert so much. Thank you JP to make this event a success. Good experience together with Kecharians!

  6. lucy yap on Jun 17, 2012 at 8:33 pm

  7. Wan Wai Meng on Jun 17, 2012 at 12:34 am

    It was in my teenage years that I first encountered the Cranberries, their soulful ballads is a reminder of how good the times were. The after party was attended by many young kecharians who really let their hair down. Thank you to Dolores for being a famous vegetarian and flying the flag of not harming animals!

  8. Irene Lim on Apr 16, 2012 at 8:23 am

    Good effort JP and team! Rock, rock and rock more to Kechara! Jp is not just rocking money to Kechara but also creating awareness to a totally new audience. Hurray JP!

  9. Henry ooi on Apr 16, 2012 at 12:02 am

    As I was making my way into the stadium, the first song ‘Dream’ was being played and the crowd was electrifying. I did not know all songs played at the concert except for Dream, Zombie and Salvation but most fans in the crowd obviously did and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Probably some went home with their throats sore but I guess it’s worth it.

  10. Helena Chin on Apr 15, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    They are just soooooooooo awesome….!!! The Cranberries ROCK!! Hehehe…
    The Cranberries After Party was super great!!! Ill Kidd ROCK too hehehe…we had somuch fun 😉
    Thank you JP!!

  11. kah soon on Apr 14, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    Hey guys, thanks loads for the tickets! Never in my wildest dreams, i’d see this happening, hats off to you all. Btw, i noticed they didn’t play “Roses” from their setlist, instead they played #19 Conduct and #20 Losing My Mind – from their new album which was played live for the first time especially for us. 🙂 Was wondering if anyone of you recorded the whole concert on video or mp3? thanks again 🙂

  12. Karma Tsetchi on Apr 13, 2012 at 6:13 pm

    Wow! Actually it had already happened!!! Great Great!!! Did you love it guys?? Jamie, I just love the photo you’re on! We can see the fever !!!! Glad for you everyone! 🙂

  13. Yoke Fui on Apr 13, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    Dear JP,
    I know you had sleepless nights, xxx bricks and worked very hard for this concert to be staged successfully. You done it !

    For Kechara, it’s worth the few additional fine lines on your flawless complexion . You will do it even better the next time !

  14. Steve Tobias on Apr 13, 2012 at 4:41 am

    Congrats JP and everyone, it’s so impressive that you got the Cranberries all the way to Malaysia for a huge event.

  15. ECheah on Apr 12, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    Kudos to JP for getting this off the ground and having made it a huge success. I’m not a fan but nonetheless happy that people of all walks of life enjoyed a night out and made some indirect contribution to a good cause. You know what will undoubtly be a massive success, I am very sure? K-Pop!! That’s the current craze today for young Malaysians and we should capitalise on it. The Gen Y & Z people will snap up all tickets, money will not be an issue, just you watch. I saw that recently when I took my daughter to see a K Pop group recently that she’s crazy about. We almost got crushed. Gratification first. Go book Girls Generation first quick quick quick before anybody else does, JP! Their following is massive. They’ll sell out.

  16. wahying on Apr 12, 2012 at 1:40 pm

    Congratulations to Kechara and thank you JP, is a super success concert with more 90% full! JP, can we have Madonna for next round?

  17. Jace Chong on Apr 12, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    OMG, it’s such an enjoyable night!!!

    When they were playing the song Zombie, everyone went crazy and sang together, it’s like everybody’s concert. The power of music is great and bring everybody together regardless race and religion.

    Thank you JP!!! Can you bring us more??!! Hehe…

  18. Margaretlee on Apr 12, 2012 at 11:39 am

    It was a great concert even though I am not a crazy fan for the Cranberries. The stadium was packed that night and I understand that JP took up this project quite last minute.

    JP is always resourceful and I must congratulate him,his good friend Selina and all the Kecharians who were behind the scene for all the effort and hard work that have made this a very successful concert.

    You all have made being “Kecharians” proud indeed !!!

    Who can now dare say Kecharian can not ROCK??? LOL!

  19. lewkwanleng on Apr 12, 2012 at 10:59 am

    Thank you JP for working so hard to make this event a success. I am sure there are a lot of experience we picked up along the way which will help us organize our international event in the near future 🙂

    And yes, I enjoyed taking photographs very much 🙂

    The Yant tattoos have developed over the centuries under the influence of several different religious.They have their reasons to do it as it represents vows and commitments, blessings, kindness and love. It is a spiritual method to help someone become a better person.
    From this article we can see most people are seeking for mundane help which is quite common but what most important is how one would be able to transform their mind for better and ultimately achieve liberation from suffering.Thank you very much for this interesting article and video for exploring another type of unique spiritual tradition.

    Beautiful thangka of Mahasiddha Naropa and Niguma, the Lady of Illusion paints a thousand words. In this painting the great Tantric mahasiddha Naropa sits gazing up,together with Niguma a dakini and was one of the influential yoginis and Vajrayana teachers. Niguma is one of the two female founders of the Shangpa Kagyu school of Vajrayana Buddhism. A beautiful thangka depicted with the powerful dharma protector Dorje Shugden will be wonderful to have.

    Janguli is a Buddhist goddess who protects from snakes and poisons, worshiped in the ancient past. By nature Janguli is actually Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion who will protects us against snakes but actually dissolving our anger. Our anger is the root cause for destruction of merits and causes us to stay in samsara longer. A beautiful thangka depicted with Dorje Shugden the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri will definitely wonderful to have in our home protecting us and helping us to clear obstacles in our spiritual path.

    The practice of Vajrayogini is especially popular in the Highest Yoga Tantra of the Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug schools. Her Tantra promises rebirth in her pure land known as Kechara Paradise. When Vajrayogini is portrayed in this appearance with the left hand raised and the two feet firmly planted she is commonly referred to as the Naro Khachodma. Red in colour with one face, three eyes and two hands the left holds aloft a white skullcup. As depicted with Dorje Shugden forms a beautiful and powerful thangka.

    We are so blessed hearing a sacred, holy recording of the two holy tutors of the Dalai Lama performing a Dorje Shugden kangsol (puja). Great masters HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche and HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche chanting the powerful puja to Dorje Shugden. Both of them were the tutors of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. This is definitely has proven that HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche had a close connection with Dorje Shugden. HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche has even composed a combined prayer offering to propitiate the blessings of this enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden, which no one can denied. Both Kyabje Ling Rinpoche , Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and many Highly attained lamas of Tibet did propitiate Dorje Shugden lamas of Tibet. That’s the truth which cannot be hidden. But HH Dalai Lama insists that Ling Rinpoche, his own tutor, never relied on Dorje Shugden at all. Interesting read, may more people know the truth and understand better of the Dorje Shugden controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Khong Jean Ai for this wonderful sharing .

    Tsunami Memorial in Sri Lanka is a monument remembering the 35,000 people who lost their lives just in Sri Lanka during the 2004 tsunami. In loving memory of the 40,000 people who died in the tsunami and the thousands largest single rail disaster in world history. The powerful Sri Lanka tsunami-rail disaster occurred when a crowded passenger train was destroyed on a coastal railway in Sri Lanka by a tsunami. Built by Japanese Buddhist community to commemorate this tragedy, Sri Lanka has erected a Buddha Statue dedicated to everyone who lost their lives, as well as the people who survived. A beautiful place of sad memory . Having this Buddha statue built there will definitely plant the seeds of enlightenment for who visited this place and seeing is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this beautiful sharing.

    Thank you for the sharing the Buddhist Tsunami Memorial in Sri Lanka. Very touching article, heart breaking to read and to see pictures of the Tsunami tragedy. It was Sri Lanka’s worst and biggest natural disaster in recorded history. Many people were killed and thousands lost their home and family.

    As we know horrify incident always remarks many unpleasant feelings and memories.
    Despite the widespread wreckage and the unfathomable lives claimed, there remains a sense of optimism in the country.

    Appreciation the people involved to build a Buddha statue to purify the mind, builds up the serenity within ones and motivates to overcome the negative emotions of fear, hence uplifting the mind and focusing the attention on the reality of the materialistic world. May Buddha bless and calm all those that passed away from the tsunami.

    Dorje Shugden is a protector that is karmically very close to us which enables him to help us with such effectiveness and speed. There are many similar testimonies which prove to us that this protector is very beneficial for us.
    Due to the power of Dorje Shugden , miracles happened and she is well after many offerings such as incense, light and pujas following Rinpoche’s advice.Thank you for this amazing miracle story of Dorje Shugden.

    Venerable Geshe Sopa-lah a learned-monk spoke from his heart feelings and thoughts about what happening around the Dorje Shugden controversy and Dalai Lama as well. Those years back in India Geshe-lah did helped in the many buildings in Gaden Shartse Monastery where our Lama helped in the funds. He paints the truth of his experience sharing what he knew and gave a few points of advice. A friend of our lama for over 20 years, Venerable Geshe Lobsang Sopa-lah visited Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia in 2016. Geshe Sopa-lah has been actively involved in the campaign against the Dorje Shugden ban since 1996. He is in fact blacklisted, ostracised and persecuted, family tides cut as he bravely spoke about ban and even attended the protests. Sadly all of his family have since cut communications with him. Geshe Lobsang Sopa-lah now lives in Vermont, USA ,serving HH Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Ooh dear could not imagine a well known man …James Jameson heir to the whiskey empire did such a cruel act. Well he might have his reason to do but I am sure the horrific incident will haunt him foe life. He was the grandson of the man whose signature appears on the whiskey bottles. Heartfelt reading what he did, bought an 11-year-old girl for the price of six handkerchiefs and gave her to a local chief where cannibalism existed at that time in Africa. He witnessed the most horribly sickening sight of the girl being dismembered piece by pieces , cooked and eaten without a particle remained, while he sketched the whole process. This is the most horrific, shocking story I came across.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sad sharing.

    Everyone of us have the freedom of thought, conscience and religion. In this modern time I would not imagine such incident of religious liberty exist. In a school of Louisiana, USA, a teacher spoke against a Asian student CC of his religious beliefs in a number of ways. CC was berated, harassed by teachers, administrators and even to that extend of receiving calls to his house. CC ‘s parents could not tolerate anymore and decided to file a lawsuit and won the case. Religious freedom, should be allow to all. Freedom of religion requires not only freeing religion from undue government regulation and interference from any one.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Surprise to know our colon contain of poison due to unbalance diet of food intake. It really true, our body is often conceded toxins as a result of an unhealthy food consumed. However i think it is best to keep a food journal correctly to maintain and track our food intake.

    It is really important to eliminate waste from your body every day to maintain a good lifestyle and stay healthy. Hoping to keep the simple ingredients in mind and help many to keep their colon healthy.

    Thank you very much for the article sharing a great fact that we need to take it
    seriously to save life.

    A very good choice to place a Buddha statue there to bless the beings that are around that area. Many people had lost their lives during the tsunami in 2004 and I believe that area will be full of the spirits of the people that lost their lives during disaster.
    It good that Sri Lanka has since built and dedicated a Buddha statue for the deceased and to plant the seeds of enlightenment for all who visit and see it. Thank you for sharing nice article with us.

    Winston Churchill was a British politician, military officer and writer who did twice served as the prime minister of Great Britain. Churchill did helped to lead a successful Allied strategy with the U.S. and Soviet Union during World War II. I did not know of his dark side till this post. Winston Churchill was in fact a clear racist and a stubborn imperialist. To many historians Churchill was seen as at the most brutal and brutish end of the British imperialist spectrum. Churchill’s imperialism was motivated only by an altruistic desire to elevate the putatively lower races. Winston thinks only of the colour of their skin. He hate Indians recording to him they are a beastly people with a beastly religion. These are another side to Churchill’s politics and career that should not be forgotten amid the endless parade of eulogies.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing of this great statesman with a darker side behind.

    Thank you H.E. Gyara Rinpoche for spreading the Dorje Shugden practices to many thousands Tibetans in Tibet . H.E. Gyara Rinpoche an erudite scholar recently gave Dorje Shugden’s life entrustment initiation to thousands of monks and lay people in Yangting Dechen Ling Monastery. The Tibetan Leadership (CTA) has claimed that Dorje Shugden practice is a minor practice on many occasions. This is not true at all, looking at the pictures tells all. Thousands of Tibetans gathers at Yangting Dechen Ling Monastery, listening to Gyara Rinpoche’s teachings as well as the Guhyasamaja initiation clearly has proven it. He also gave commentary on Dorje Shugden’s qualities, history to strengthen the people’s faith in Dorje Shugden and explaining about the controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great news and may more people have knowledge and understanding of Dorje Shugden . May the ban on it be lifted soon.

The Unknown

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

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

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