Our 1st Tea House in Shanghai!!!!

Sep 8, 2011 | Views: 3,059

On 27 August 2011, Kechara Tea House (KTH) officially opened in Shanghai!!

The official opening was spread over two days: a cocktail party on 27thAugust and a brunch on 28thAugust. Many guests, including Kecharians from KL and Bangkok flew in to attend and support the event.

The interior design of the tea house has a contemporary and spiritual touch… and the food follows the same style! They have a wide selection of interesting vegetarian and vegan dishes and creative tea beverages. During the opening, guests were able to sample the tasting menu such as the open face mushroom sandwich, roasted eggplant lasagna, tea mojito and Ruby Tara Mar-tea-ni (non-alcoholic, of course!). I heard that many people particularly enjoyed the vegetable lasagna and the various tea concoctions. How wonderful that the tea house has such a great chef to entice people through vegetarian options!!

Kechara Tea House is our very first Kechara branch in Shanghai, China. Two Kecharians who are based in Shanghai, Phng Li Kheng and Christine Wang, took it upon themselves to make this Tea House happen! Together with Datuk May Phng, President of Kechara House, all three women have worked very hard to oversee and source for everything… from the place to the architect, to the decorative items, furniture, renovation and food items. I sincerely thank them from the bottom of my heart for their compassion and sincere dedication!

Phng Li Kim, CEO of Kechara Media & Publications, flew in to support and was the MC for both occasions (cocktail party and brunch). During the opening night, Phng Li Kheng and Christine Wang gave their official speeches. After the speeches were given, a small token of appreciation was presented to the investors of Kechara Tea House by Datuk May Phng and Henry Ooi (Vice-President of Kechara House). According to those who went, the opening ceremony was well-organized and went very smoothly. Guests were entertained, the company was warm and the vibe throughout the event was celebratory!

I am so proud of Li Kheng and Christine. They took on the challenge, to inspire others to choose a kind and healthy lifestyle. They chose a meaningful path in their life to benefit others and to promote vegetarianism through a fun and modern way. Fantastic! Fantastic! Fantastic! Creating healthy, happy and spiritual lifestyles…I met Christine maybe 6 times. I met Li Kheng maybe 10 times…my point? I have hardly spent time with them, nurtured them, yet they can do so much and commit with so little time from me. They demand nothing from me…. Incredible. There are sometimes people you spend so much time and effort and they feel it’s not enough. These two can produce so much in a short space of time with little coaching…they have asked nothing of me and no demands…they just get the work done….wow…thank you two for your great examples…It shows you are with me for purely Dharma reasons. Inspiring to me….Yes, that’s how you inspire a Dharma teacher to continue turning the wheel of Dharma. They do what they say, demand nothing and do it for the good of others…

Li Kheng who is the youngest daughter of Datuk May Phng, is a young, intelligent woman, with a lot of integrity. When she commits and makes a promise to do something, she will make sure she does it well and all the way. She has been instrumental in holding everything together for Kechara Tea House. She has to juggle between her work and everything for the Tea House, but still remains so dedicated in all her duties and responsibilities.

Christine decided to leave her full time job to run the Tea House full time! Although she is so new to this, and to Kechara, she has taken a leap of faith to do something more meaningful in her life. During her speech she said that it was when she came for the Gompa Opening in November 2010, it made her think and search for something more to do in her life. I am glad that she has found it. Christine is a good friend of Li Kheng, and is a successful, bright and dynamic lady who has also been working very hard to get the Tea House ready.

I thank these two ladies very very much, and hope that the Tea House will do well in Shanghai. Thank you, Li Kheng and Christine, for being an inspiration to many people, and for wanting to make a difference in the lifestyle of others and believing in a compassionate, spiritual, kind and healthy life that is possible in modern growing China. It is another historical event for Kechara, and the Tea House will continuously improve and grow tremendously to benefit others.

Do take a look at the photos of the opening below! I have also added a video of the opening…

The tea house is located in Red Town, G113, Building 28, 570 Huaihai (W) Road, Shanghai. It is opened from 8am to 9.30pm and contact is: +86 21 5237 1716. Do visit when you’re in Shanghai!

Again, I am very proud of our first branch in China. Wonderful!!

A message from Li Kheng:

“Thank you for your generous and enthusiastic congratulatory messages!

It is pretty awesome to take a step back and look at Kechara Tea House and what it represents: A lifestyle for the 21st century based on compassion.

Kechara Tea House is an effort to epitomize the teachings of Lord Buddha as taught by H.E Tsem Rinpoche, whom I thank profusely from my heart. It is with the teachings and care of Rinpoche that the idea of using my abilities to benefit others could be conceived. It is with Rinpoche’s wisdom that a “commercial” person like me could use my secular experience to garner the chance to live a more purposeful and rewarding life.

Kechara Tea House is created with the guidance and blessing of Rinpoche to provide a tasty and healthy dining solution that is simultaneously kind to environment and animals. The tea house is fashioned around our modern lifestyle where we continue to enjoy a delectable meal in a stylish setting. The only thing that changes is our motivation to benefit another life every time we choose to go vegetarian for the meal: Nothing changes, everything changes!

Kechara Tea House’s first outlet would not have opened smoothly without the skillful coaching of Datuk May who has been a pillar of strength to ensure that every aspect of the tea house is set up by the highest standard befitting the name of Kechara and our Guru – H.E Tsem Rinpoche.

Also, sincere thanks to fellow Kecharians. Not only did many of you come all the way to Shanghai to grace this event with your presence, you have been an inspiration through your dedication to Kechara House in Malaysia, Thailand and the Internet. I pray that Kecharians will continue to inspire and make a difference to any more people.

Lastly, I would like to scream a huge THANK YOU to my dear friend Christine! Thank you for your fierce passion in the Dharma and faith in this vision. You have certainly displayed true courage in your leap of faith as you leave your comfort zone and begin a journey that will make a difference to so many beings. To a rare jewel of a person: Christine!

It is such an honor to be blessed with the opportunity to create something that can bring benefit to others.

Next time you are in Shanghai, come join us for a meal that is Kind & Kinda Delicious!  We await your visit at Kechara Tea House.”

    when I lived in Shanghai, there was a branch of Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Coffee_Bean_%26_Tea_Leaf
    behind Jingan Temple
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jingan_Temple
    that had a Dorje Shugden statue, in a cabinet, but it was only visible in the morning, after which the cabinet door was closed and it wasn’t apparent what was in the storage space . . . . .
    loads and loads of Tibetan Lamas coming to Shanghai, of many different lineages, including Bon and Jonangpa, I met a Dorje Shugden Lama at a Kopi Luwak https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kopi_Luwak coffeeshop on Fahuazhen Lu – quite a fashionable little street with quite upmarket bars and restaurants – ain’t life surprising

    可喜可贺,真心祝贺上海 Tea House 大展宏图,也非常期待不久的将来中国所有大城市都有我们克切拉茶坊的存在。也同时希望在欧美国家也会有同样的茶坊出现,让克切拉精神转播出去。

    Kechara finally have a tea house in Shanghai. The tea house is really beautiful.A lot of kecharians gathered in the kechara’s first tea house. I can see that there is a lot of excitement going around the tea house. Have a good time drinking your tea.

  5. Bruneian on Mar 29, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Can we have this in Brunei? =D

  6. Thierry Janssens on Sep 29, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    I visited the tea house earlier this month, it’s real nice, and in a very hip and creative area of Shanghai. The food was delish too! I’d love to be able to lunch and coffee there regularly. Congratulations on a beautiful and professional job, I hope this is the start of many more.

  7. JImmy on Sep 24, 2011 at 6:11 am

    Wow is was great to see that so proud of it .wish soon can see in Malaysia

  8. Landar on Sep 21, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    Congratulations on this.

  9. Christine Wang on Sep 15, 2011 at 3:00 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I am terribly sorry for such a late reply due to the VPN issue…Even though Likheng has already “ warned” me that many people commented on Rinpoche’s blog about the opening of Kechara Tea House. But when I read the blog today, I was so surprised that my mouth kept open for a while! I never expect the opening of Kechara Tea House would have caught so much attention and it was totally overwhelming to read so many kind words from dear Rinpoche! Thank you Rinpoche!

    Rinpoche, you said “ Thank you “ to us many times but it should be us to say “ Thank you” to Rinpoche for inspiring us and guiding us and changing our lives! It should be us to say that Rinpoche never asked anything from us but bless us and nurture us for our benefit. We can never pay back enough to equal what Rinpoche has benefited us. I would be still sitting in the office thinking about what to do off work if I didn’t have the chance to meet Rinpoche in this life.

    We are so lucky! SO LUCKY!

    And I want to thank Datuk May specially for making the pursuit of my Dharma journey possible! It’s such an honor to have the opportunity to learn from Datuk May about business and life!

    It was very sweet to see all the nice Kecharians in Shanghai for the opening party. Felt like families coming to our graduation ceremony. ☺ Really appreciate their support and effort and all these kind words left at the blog…

    And to Likheng, my darling friend and Dharma sister, and now my business partner, what can I say? I admire her energy and loyalty to Dharma work and thank her for watching over me with love and patience. She has worked so hard day and night and took the lead to make all this happen. I would like to scream back to her an even bigger “THANK YOU” for being such a wonderful friend!

    Rinpoche’s teaching has inspired many of my friends to see their lives in a different way. I really hope that Kechara Tea House will attract more and more people so they will have the opportunities to experience Rinpoche’s teaching that simply start from eating deliciously food without killing another being.

    Again, thank you so much Rinpoche for promoting Kechara Tea House Shanghai at the blog. I hope our Tea House will become one of the hot sightseeing spots for Kacharians and other friends when they visit in Shanghai!

    With love,
    Christine

  10. James Long on Sep 14, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    Congratulation!! I miss all of you in Shanghai. I wish so much to see the “after” hehehe.

    I’m so happy when I know Christine is joining full time to take care of Kechara Tea House. I pray that KTH will continue to expand in Shanghai, to pass out the message that being dynamic with a compassionate heart.

    I like the group in Shanghai who are very intellectual and willing to learn more. Hope to see you all soon.

  11. ibika on Sep 14, 2011 at 4:40 pm

    wow… flash place.. Now lets hope that the spirit of the place remains one of encouraging the owners, staff and visitors to practice the dharma and be mindfull.
    if only the 5 precepts…for if we practcie them we will change the world very quickly.

  12. Ethan Chu on Sep 13, 2011 at 12:45 am

    Congratulations!

    It is very beautiful, contemporary and stylish. What a great concept! Li Kheng and Christine are true inspirations, I love them both so much. They are so determined, wise and very compassionate, true rare gems!!! Combine they will benefit so many and inspire so many young people.

    I can’t imagine the amount of hard work behind the tea house. This marks a historical mark in Kechara history but this is only the beginning. Kechara has grown so much over the years and it will continue to do so…

    Congrats girls! Wonderful wonderful work!

  13. june kang on Sep 12, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    Congratulation!

    Thank you for Christine & Li Kheng and the team’s hard work. This opening is inspire me to move my team (Chinese translation team) fast and speed up the translation works for our Chinese group.

    May Rinpoche’s Dharma works grow and spread through Kechara Tea House.

  14. lanse on Sep 12, 2011 at 2:38 pm

    I was so lucky to have the opportunity to attend the Kechara Tea House opening, it is really nice, thank you for Li Kheng and Christine’s hard work. Hope that in future we can have a place like this in Malaysia where we can go chill out and enjoy healthy vegetarian food.

  15. hapi buni on Sep 12, 2011 at 10:46 am

    I’m happy for you, Li Kheng & Christine, on your new venture which is certainly is a mark of distinction. I feel certain it’s your persistence and determination leading you girls on this exciting new path which will certainly attract clients and build the relationships into long-term ones.

    I wish you every success as you build the business. Congratulations!

  16. bengkooi on Sep 11, 2011 at 6:32 pm

    Congratulations Li Kheng and Christine! I was lucky enough to attend the Tea House opening and it was such a wonderful uplifting experience. What you two have accomplished in a short time is really very inspiring, and I was impressed with the decor, ambiance, food, drink etc… well done!

  18. Chris Tan on Sep 11, 2011 at 1:52 am

    Congratulation to Li Kheng and Christine for taking the initiative to open the first Kechara Tea House in Shanghai. This is historical moment as Kechara enters China. And it is so great that u guys are promoting interesting vegetarian and vegan dishes and creative tea beverages to the crowd. As i know it is not easy to run a business in Shanghai yet u guys are taking the challenge/courage and make all these happen.

    Thank you for all your hard work, may more of Kechara Tea House manifest in China to spread Rinpoche’s dharma work.

  19. A N Ham on Sep 11, 2011 at 12:13 am

    Christine, my dear Li Kheng and her Datuk mama,
    Opening a tea house to spread the Dharmma?
    Who would have dared to do what they do?
    Three gutsy ladies inspired by our caring Guru.
    You are now such a great inspiration to all of us,
    Knowing that you worked on this from morn to dusk.
    No doubts it will be such a great success,
    So many sentient beings will be blessed.
    Congratulations to you all is the general order of the day,
    May the next Kechara tea house not be far off from today!

  20. Paul Yap on Sep 10, 2011 at 10:16 pm

    Congratulation to Kechara Tea House and the superb team who put them all together!!!
    I will definitely going back for more tea and delicious vegetarian food. I wish Kechara Tea House expand all over the region and introduce the benefits of vegetarianism and spiritual way of life!

    Thanks for all your hard work KTH team! muak!!!

  21. Hui Keng on Sep 10, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    Congratulations to Li Kheng, Christine, Datuk May for creating the first Kechara deparment in Shanghai! I was fortunate to be able to personally witness the opening and saw how they worked so hard to get the tea house open in time. I know it is not easy but they DID it. They are brave and focus on the objective to make this possible.

    Thank you ladies for bring Kechara officially on the map of China. Hurray!

  22. Li Kim on Sep 10, 2011 at 8:43 pm

    Li Kheng and Christine have been wonderful in making the first Kechara Tea House in Shanghai manifest. It takes a lot of courage to take this on. It is no doubt that with the inspiration and guidance from Rinpoche, and the guidance from our mother Datuk May, they cannot go wrong BUT it is still pure courage and commitment from both these young ladies that I am inspired by. Why? They could have easily started a business in the “norm” of things like a fashion shop, or even a wine bar, which would be easily accepted BUT they chose to create something new and different.

    Kechara Tea House is done beautifully – simple yet elegant. More importantly the ambience is cosy and bright. Very very nice. And the food – Delicious! The drinks – Creative and thirst quenching. The tea mocktails make not drinking alcohol cool!

    As Li Kheng’s sister, I am so so very very proud of her. And she did it all without a sweat and full of grace. And Christine, for someone so new to Dharma, to leave her well-paying job to commit to this simply because she believes in compassion and Rinpoche is truly inspiring and admirable.

    All the best Li Kheng and Christine! May many many more Kechara Tea Houses blossom in China!

  23. SP on Sep 10, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    Kechara Tea House in Shanghai:

    “A small step for Kechara, a giant leap for Dharma.”

  24. David Lai on Sep 10, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    This is amazing! This is a historical moment as Kechara enters China. I do hope more of such cafes mushroom all over Shanghai, Beijing and other major Chinese cities. China is expanding economically and growing at such a phenomenal rate that materialism is rampant resulting in millions of unhappy and dissatisfied rich people. Therefore, Kechara has a huge role to play by introducing Dharma in a modern and conducive way that the Chinese would be able to embrace and benefitted.

    Congratulations to these wonderful girls. They are a beacon of inspiration for young spiritual and progressive city girls for others who are like them.

  25. abby on Sep 10, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    It’s a lovely news!! Glad to hear that 🙂
    This is a good start and im really excited!
    I wish to be there in the future to help or whatsoever.
    Kechara goes to CHINA!! yay ^^V Congratulation!
    All the best and good luck to all!

  26. Margaretlee on Sep 10, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    Chinese are tea drinkers by culture…….And Shanghai is a cosmopolitan city with much western influence. The conceptualization of a tea house with all the western savouries (vegetarian of course) and alike is just a genius idea to be the power house to bring dharma in contemporary setting to all….

    Love the idea and and rejoice in all the people who involved in executing this plan.

    “Thank you” is never enough …. to Rinpoche, Datuk May, Li Kheng Christine, generous sponsors and many hard working staff behind this project.

    I rejoice with all of you and wish I could have a “Honey Date” or a “Ruby Tara Mar-Tea-Ni” very soon in the first and ever “KECHARA TEA HOUSE” in Shanghai!

    May Dharma grows and spread through Kechara Tea House……

  27. Nicholas on Sep 10, 2011 at 4:46 pm

    Wow…..Kechara Tea House is really beautiful….

    Congratulation to Li Kheng & Christine. The result from their hard work really inspire me. As mentioned by Rinpoche, they spend less time with Rinpoche by there are able to do so much. This is truly guru devotion.

    Having Kechara Tea House in Shanghai shows our expansion to China and at the same time in Thailand. Kechara is really growing and for the spreading of Lama Tsongkhapa doctrine and Rinpoche’s teaching.

    Thanks again to Datuk May, Li Kheng & Christine and their team for making this tea house happen. It’s really nice and I know this is just the starting point. With their effort it will grow and benefit more and more people in China.

  28. Chia Song Peng on Sep 10, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    This great milestone of Kechara Tea House proves that Kechara is always growing and it will only get bigger and bigger.
    With the right teaching and guidance from H.E Tsem Tulku Rinpoche we will continue to grow and manifest more such milestones all around the world.
    Congratulations on the opening of this wonderful Kechara Tea House. Will definitely drop by when i am there 🙂

  38. Li Kheng on Sep 10, 2011 at 1:52 am

    Way to go dragon ladies of Kechara, pioneering the first branch of Kechara into China. And to think these two key ladies have only met Rinpoche not so many times in the past two years and yet they produce such a big result.

    I do hope I can be in Shanghai to enjoy the drinks and food there.
    Hmmm will the tea house also manifest in Malaysia?

  46. Joy on Sep 9, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    The decor, the display showcase for KH message fo vegetarianism of Peace and the contemporary unique Altar set-up for Tsongkhapa, Medicine Buddha and Tara, certainly show a very lovely setting and relaxing place for people to have tea and mingle around. It is indeed wonderful, inspiring and a joy to see Kechara spreading her wings so far and wide into the lands of China, Shanghai! Congratulations to Kechara, and may it continue to flourish and prosper with its spreading of Dharma far and wide to benefit sentient beings forever more!

  61. Jayce on Sep 9, 2011 at 1:04 pm

    Congratulations to Rinpoche,Datuk May, Li Kheng and Christine for the opening of the Kechara Tea House!

    The Tea House looked amazing… modern and relax.

    It will attract many people in ShangHai. We all can see the hardwork and good job done for the opening of the tea house for dharma spreading.

    All I wish for them is their success in spreading dharma and trigger the compassionate in human.

    They are truly inspiring and i pay my respect to them whenever and wherever i am.

    Thanks Rinpoche from deep in heart.

  64. Karen Chong on Sep 9, 2011 at 12:24 pm

    Congratulations to Kechara Tea House Shanghai! I like the juxtaposition of raw material and modern structure of the interior and also its facade. It somehow can connect to the idea of it is possible to lead a healthy meat-free diet in our busy and stressful life, especially in metropolitan Shanghai.

    Kechara is so blessed to have some powerful potent female who make the huge leap forward within Kechara and for Kechara. Thank you Datuk May, Li Kheng, Christine and those who worked hard to realise the vision of Kechara stepping into China. They showed us nothing can defeat us if you really have the sincerity to spread dharma to others. They are truly inspiring and i respect them a lot.

  65. MayOng on Sep 9, 2011 at 12:02 pm

    Congratulations to Datuk May, Li Kheng and Christine on the opening of KTH in Shanghai as well as the investors. You all worked hard to spread Kechara in China and look forward to visiting the cafe soon!

  66. Sock Wan on Sep 9, 2011 at 11:48 am

    This is so nice to see Kechara reaching China. I am really impressed with Li Kheng and Christine’s determination to bring Rinpoche’s teachings and Dharma to the people in China.

    These 2 young ladies are real Dharma practitioners, even though they hardly see Rinpoche but it does not stop them from wanting to stay with Kechara and spread Dharma to people. We should learn from them, always ask ourselves why are we in Kechara? Is it because of Rinpoche or Dharma? Personally, it was Rinpoche who brought me to the world of Dharma by the way Rinpoche gives teachings. To repay the kindness of Rinpoche is to continue with the of spreading Dharma, benefiting others even when Rinpoche is not with me physically.

  67. KYC on Sep 9, 2011 at 11:02 am

    The Kechara Tea House is beautiful and modern. It will certainly attract many people. I can see that a lot of hard work has gone into the opening of the tea house. It is all about spreading kindness and compassion. These are the key words in the speeches of Li Kheng and Christine. I wish them success in their endeavours and much happiness in their lives.

  68. Fang on Sep 9, 2011 at 10:51 am

    TEAM SHANGHAI~ YOU TRULY RAWK!!
    Congratulations on the new premise – it’s looking fantabuloso! Another place on the list to visit in Shanghai!

      I am glad to know that the daughter of the President is spearheading this and I read from the comments that the son is helping too. What an amazing family to commit to the growth of an organisation, shows how they really are contributing and giving back to the society. Kechara should be proud to have such sincere people.

  79. Eric Khor on Sep 9, 2011 at 5:21 am

    I can’t wait to go there and try the Ruby Tara Mar-tea-ni ! The only one place in the world that has this perhaps?

    • Rachel Goh on Sep 9, 2011 at 5:25 am

      It’s not easy to run a café in Shanghai as there is much competition. It takes courage and commitment to make this work. Congrats for your opening.

  80. Alan Kwok on Sep 9, 2011 at 5:20 am

    I love it that the Kecharians show support for the team by flying in from Malaysia and other places. This shows that they really rejoice and support each other. Congratulations.

  81. Christy Chung on Sep 9, 2011 at 5:19 am

    Nice! Are you planning to open up more tea houses around the world?

  82. Sean Soo on Sep 9, 2011 at 5:19 am

    I like the interior design of the tea house. This is really a classy vegetarian place, I love it.

  83. Gim Lee on Sep 9, 2011 at 4:36 am

    Congratulations to Li Kheng, Christine & all the team involved in KTH. It is so beautiful & classy… everything looks so amazing… the food looks so delicious! Yummy yummy…

    Rightly said by Jamie(Paris), it brings a very powerful message of comppasion in a huge country where the majority will eat almost every living things they can get their hands on…

    I really hope I got the chance to visit KTH 🙂

    • Dawson Tan on Sep 9, 2011 at 5:23 am

      It is very inspiring to read the story of 2 ladies in Shanghai who opened this place. Wow! Definitely will pay a visit when I visit Shanghai.

  84. koh hee peng on Sep 9, 2011 at 2:01 am

    Wow.. Kechara is expanding fast. The decoration of the building is nice and the food looks very delicious. Would definitely visi kechara tea house if I visit Shanghai.

  85. Paris on Sep 9, 2011 at 2:01 am

    This is tremendous, a big step forward in Kechara’s history and journey. I am sorry I couldn’t be there but a massive congratulations and THANK YOU for all you are doing to bring the Tsongkhapa and Dharma to China, and to bring such a powerful message of kindness and compassion to a country that is famously known for eating “anything with its back to the sun”. Thank you for creating the beginnings of what will become great education, sharing, practice and transformation.

    Big love and smush hugs to Li Kheng and Christine too. It is just what Rinpoche has said, that you have given so much without having asked for anything back. In between all this, LiKheng and Christine have also been instrumental in helping Kechara Media & Publications in various matters which have contributed so so so much. Thank you for all your care – it really shows what amazing, sincere, kind hearts you have. You’ve shown us that nothing is impossible if we just put our minds to it – it’s not whether we can do something, it’s how much we want to.

    When will you be coming to KL again so we can give you giant smushy hugs! Or we come up to Shanghai and go for massive double celebrations (KTH and KMP)!

    Big big love and thank yous again… most of all for just being you!

  86. Justin R on Sep 9, 2011 at 1:39 am

    Wow! Thank you Rinpoche for posting this. And thank you Datuk May Li Kheng, Christine and everyone who planned and worked for the opening of Kechara Tea House. May Kechara Tea House benefit many people in China.

  99. Philip Yong on Sep 8, 2011 at 11:46 pm

    How amazing Kechara has expanded to China! I’ve always love the topic of entrepreneurship and I’ve always believe there should be more social entrepreneurs out there who use their skill and innovates not only for profit but also in the way we do charity or in this Dharma. That to me is a true success of an entrepreneur.

    As far as I am concerned, Tsem Rinpoche is the only one ‘entrepreneur’ who has skillfully spread the Dharma through various creative ways.

    Congratulations on the opening of the tea house! May there be more branches soon all over China, Malaysia and the world as a whole!

  100. Lim KSJC on Sep 8, 2011 at 11:41 pm

    Gong Xi Gong Xi to Kechara and our Guru to make Kechara now spread to Shanghai with healthy living style mix together with Dhamar…

She was a gracious and hospitable hostess to us. Thank you, again, Li Kheng. And of course, thank you to the brains behind this, Datuk May and not forgetting Wee Liang (Datuk May’s younger son), who was our tour guide and translator.

    Yes, Christine and Li Kheng are really an inspiration to all. They realised the vision of Kechara stepping into China. The place is beautifully set up and the decor is very contemporary. I went there again 2 days after the opening and to my surprise Christine told me that they have sold off all their food and cakes for the day! And that was only 3pm!!! It is really a good start and may dharma grow in China with KTH.

    Congratulations to Kechara Tea House!!!

    Christine and Li Kheng are indeed very dedicated to bring Dharma to more people, with their talents and skills, I believe that this will be a successful first step in China.

    Wish them all the best!!

    Christine, I want to give you a big hug when i come, you hv done a good job!! Respect you so much!!

    I had the privilege to attend Kechara Tea House’s opening. It is such wonderful to see Kechara spreading her wings to Shanghai. By using modern way of lifestyle, Kechara Tea House will attract a lot of young crowd to start vegetarianism and cultivate the compassionate habit.

    Li Kheng is very special. She doesn’t complain and just get the job done. I truly rejoice for what Datuk May, Li Kim and Li Kheng had done for Dharma!!

    In general jealousy seems to be bad for any relationships. It’s a feeling of resentment against someone, feeling of insecurity and conflict. It’s human nature. It’s natural to feel jealous from time to time. Well it becomes problematic when we act out in jealousy. Everything happen for a reason, some people have been doing well , wealthy and some do not , all these are our past karma. We should not feel jealous but rejoice for them. We should try self-confidence letting go the situation. Jealousy can be harmful as it will hijack our mind, ruin our relationships, destroy our family, and some extreme cases such stealing or killing as well . At times jealousy becomes lethal, as do domestic fights, and ends up killing others or themselves.
    To avoid jealousy we should accept and begin to appreciate who and what we are. Always rejoice to others and take them as an inspiration example. We should think less about ourselves, and more about others. Learning Dharma , practicing Dharma and putting into action , our jealousy will disappear. It’s the best choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    What a wonderful way going on a holy pilgrimage, and serving a Great Lama. Khensur Rinpoche who is a good friend of our Lama for 27 years. Rinpoche had known Khensur Rinpoche since Rinpoche time in India. Khensur Rinpoche had spent his whole life living in the monastic community teaching. Kensur Rinpoche had established Shar Gaden Monastery where the practice of Dorje Shugden and lineage is protected and preserved.
    Looking at all the pictures tells us a thousand words, how the team lead by Su Ming and team serving a Great Lama Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal. Such as taking them to see the doctor for medical check-up having all the necessary tests done, to see the dentist as well as checking their eyes and so forth . Well done Su Ming and team.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing which will inspire us to go all the up serving monks.
    In a way to show , gratitude to them how we appreciate their present .

    Great and clear explanation for us to understand as well as to increase our knowledge of why bigger and more Buddha statues makes a difference in our lives. Big statues have been always been regarded as big blessings for the area around it and also the sentient beings that live around that area.

    In Kechara Forest Retreat have many holy outdoor statue to create cause for people come to pilgrimage, embucirculate around the statue will help those have heavy body karma.Thank you very much for this article.

    Many countries around the world have looking and working with China. They realised being friendly with China is a wise choice for the benefits for the growth of their country. China has become world largest economy country. For Tibet befriending China in long term will benefits both countries. Time had changed with Tibet having workshops with the Chinese is a good sign improving their relationship after all these years . People have their right and freedom to choose what they practice. Practicing Dorje Shugden is nothing to do with China. Every one of us have the right and freedom to choose what we want to practice. HH Dalai Lama is looking forward to return to Tibet one day. It only can be happen if the Tibetan leadership, letting go of the past and have more dialogues and meetings with the Chinese government in future. And solving all the political problems and lifting Dorje Shugden’s ban once for all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this great news.

    It is heart breaking, reading this article again, what Pastor Jean Ai had gone through and experience. Yet with strong determination all those abuses and attack by people whom she do not know, she did continue with her practice. Could not imagine how ungrateful the Tibetan Leadership treated the sponsor. Without the funds, sponsorship, monasteries and Dharma institutions would not able to survive for sure. Kechara organisation, and many others kind sponsors had sponsored millions to the Tibetan Buddhist monasteries of India. Not only that sponsoring of monk robes, books , statues , painting and jewelleries to name a few. Even changing the flooring of the monastery as well. Can imagine those sponsors go all the way to send them all those stuffs. And have raised so much sponsorship for them and had donated yearly in fact or when they asked for. And now none of them are allowed to go to the monasteries any more . All because they had practised Dorje Shugden’s practice. Countless other lamas and Shugden practitioners had raised funds for the monasteries too and they too were not allowed to have connection with. Sad ….there is no religious freedom at all. By now after decades , I do hope the Tibetan Leadership will lift the ban on Dorje Shugden for a better peaceful communities. May more read this post for a better understanding of what happening in the Tibetan Leadership and those in exile living in India.
    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for speaking up for the Tibetan people and for those Dorje Shugden practitioners .

    Different people have different reasons for wanting to become ordained. Sometimes I do wonder if unless the reasons are right, one should not get ordained but on the other hand I think maybe one should take the leap of faith even if the reasons are not entire “correct”.

    Modern people becoming ordained is tougher than in Buddha’s time, there are much inner and outer battle they need to overcome. May those who have the thought arise to be ordained, have more determination to make it happen. Thank you very much,for sharing this mind-changing article with all of us.

    With their expertise a radiant energy scientist, a sound healer, an energy healer and a music composer, coming together to explore knowledge of cold energy . Li Kim and team going to haunted houses to experiment the energy. The haunted house they went looks scary. Joining them is also a Taoist master, finally concluded the presence of supernatural beings, as their findings found that the energy are dark and cold. As the unseen beings do no harm, they decided to do Taoist prayers and combined healing of sound, energy before leaving the area. I do believe those unseen beings do exist. Glad to learn that sound can heal the environment and souls. . Sound wonderful .
    Thank you, Li Kim and team for this sharing.this knowledge.

    In Dharma, we learned that everything is impermanent, good thing will never last forever, that’s why we should not be attached to it as when it was gone, we will suffer tremendously, and a good news is, bad things never lasts.
    Life is a journey filled with opportunities, hardships, heartaches and its test for our courage. There is always a reason of our existence in this life.Thank you very much for this good article.

    Life is too short to wake up with regrets. I believe that everything happens for a reason ,and there is a reason behind everything. That’s why Rinpoche asked to think carefully and consider certain things. Due to Rinpoche’s clairvoyance, Rinpoche knew the consequent. Rinpoche wanted us to learn to be responsible for our decisions that is beneficial to all and not jumping into anything blindly. And that is how I pray to what I want to come to be published.
    Glad to know some knowledge of Mount Shasta which I have not heard before being one of the world’s preeminent sacred mountains.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this wonderful sharing with important explanations, some knowledge to learn and guidelines for us.

    It won’t be supress Rinpoche felt more Indian as Rinpoche have been staying in India long enough. His early life spent in the monastery in India, serving his teachers and the monastic community, has taught Rinpoche cooking more Indian foods than western foods. Even all these years in Malaysia, Rinpoche preferred Indian cuisine which is rich in spices and masala such as dhal, paneer tikka, aloo mattar and paneer butter masala. Rinpoche will go all the way his students to serve Indian food to visiting Sangha so they would get a taste of home. Glad to know more of Rinpoche through this article. With Rinpoche explanation of how he felt and inherent in the Indian tradition culture, traditional spiritual practice and devotion to a spiritual teacher. All these points that Rinpoche was more Indian as what Rinpoche felt and having a strong connection with it.
    Thank you Pastor David for this sharing.

    It is ridiculous to think that a rabbinical court would sentence a dog just because they believe he was the reincarnation of a lawyer who offended the judge before. How would the judge know and can confirm that the dog is the reincarnation of the lawyer? Isn’t it abusing of power to make baseless allegation? This is us human trying to be more superior than animals and make decision based on own interest. Horrible act.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful post explaining each and every steps the importance of starting our Dharma practice on Tsongkhapa and Vajrayogini being one. Besides our daily sadhana we should engage in Vajrayogini’s practice without delay. Life is short, not to waste our time . Start now learning from stretch, as Rinpoche has create the beautiful pure land for us to practice Dharma. For me,I still have plenty to learn and improve myself . I am one of those lucky one to have meet Rinpoche in this life and to become part of Kechara. Reading this post gave us a better understanding of how to prepare ourselves before receiving the practice of Vajrayogini . We are indeed fortunate to have Rinpoche sharing this post , once again thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

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.
    2 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
