Our 1st Tea House in Shanghai!!!!

Sep 8, 2011 | Views: 3,043

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!!

    Gangwon is a very nice place blessed with natural and beautiful scenery.The beaches are popular spots for watching sunrise on morning as well.
    It will be a good place to plan for holiday with family and friends.The best time to visit is autumn; as Korea’s coldest province, the cool autumn breeze is a pleasant prelude to the chilly winter and creates exquisite vistas of multi-coloured changing foliage.

    Thank you so much for this article. This article is mainly about the personal year number, 2, which means balance. Based on the career, they may feel influenced to set up collaborative work relationships as Number 2 is the energy of sharing.

    Based on the health, they become more aware of their diet, body type and level of exercise. They may also apply more care to their own health. At the same time, they will find them in a better position to express their feelings and this outlet will enable them to keep calm.

    Thank you so much for this article. This article is mainly about teh achievement number which is related to the prime challenges of our life on both material and spiritual fronts where it tells of our negative behavioral tendencies and provides solutions to those negative traits.

    Whoever having the achievement number, 1, their biggest challenge is to overcome their low self-esteem, which can manifest as either arrogance or timidity. Letting go of their ego, which causes them to be over-controlling of situations and people will help them tremendously.

    Commentary on the Fascinating Concept of Emanation

    A Buddhist emanation is an animate or inanimate form manifested by Buddhas or high Bodhisattvas to benefit others. The exact manner or criteria have never been explained and it may be safe to conclude that such an explanation would be beyond the mental faculties of ordinary beings.

    His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is considered by some Buddhists to be an emanation (in human form) of Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion. The Dalai Lama has even said publicly that his successor, the 15th Dalai Lama might appear as an emanation even when he, the current Dalai Lama is still alive.

    உள்ளம்பனா திருவிழா (ULLAMBANA)

    உள்ளம்பனா என்பது சமஸ்கிருத சொல். இதன் பொருள் “வேதனையிலிருந்து விடுவித்தல்”

    நம் முன்னேற்றத்திற்கு உதவியவர்கள், நம்மால் பாதிக்கப்பட்டு வேதனையுற்றவர்கள் ஆகியோருக்கு இந்த உள்ளம்பனா திருவிழாவில் கலந்துகொள்வதன் மூலம் அவர்களின் ஆத்மா சாந்தியடைய வேண்டிக்கொள்ளலாம். இது புத்த மதத்தின் சிறப்புகளில் ஒன்று.

    நமது மூதாதையர்களையும், நம்மை விட்டுப் பிரிந்த நமது அன்புக்குறியவர்களையும், பாதுகாக்கவும், தகுதிகளை உயர்த்தவும், கர்ம வினைகளால் துன்பத்தை அனுபவிப்பவர்களுக்கு இரக்கம் காட்டவும் இந்த உள்ளம்பனா திருவிழா சிறந்த ஒன்றாக அமையும்.

    புத்த மதத்தில் எழுதப்பட்ட உள்ளம்பனா சூத்திரத்தில் புத்தர் ஷக்யமுனியின் சீடரான மௌட்கல்யாயனா தனது ஞான திருஷ்டியால் தனது அம்மாவின் ஆத்மா பேயாக உலாவுவதைக் கண்டார். அவள் மெல்லிய நீண்ட கழுத்தும், பானை போன்ற வயிறும், எப்பொழுதும் பசியுடனும் இருப்பதைக் கண்டார். அவளுக்கு உணவு கொடுத்தால் அது அவள் உதட்டைத் தொட்டவுடன் கரியாக மாறுவதைக் கண்டு கவலைப் பட்டார்.

    மௌட்கல்யாயனா தன் தாயை இந்த வேதனையான சூழலிலிருந்து விடுவிப்பதற்காக புத்தரின் ஆலோசனையைக் கேட்டார்.

    புத்தர் மௌட்கல்யாயனாவிடம், 7 வது மாதம் 15 ஆம் திகதி புத்தப் பிக்குகளுக்குப் பெரிய அளவில் பிரசாதம் படைக்க வேண்டும் என்றார். பிரசாதத்தைப் படைக்கும் போது மந்திரத்தைச் சொல்லிக்கொண்டே படைக்க வேண்டும் என்றார்.

    “உனது அம்மவின்பாவங்கள் ஆழமாக வேறூன்றி இருப்பதால் உன்னிடம் இருக்கும் ஆற்றல் மட்டும் போதாது. நீ பத்து பக்கங்களிலிருந்தும் புத்த பிக்குகளை வரவழைத்து அவர்களின் ஆன்மீக பலத்தை ஒன்று திரட்டி உன் அம்மாவின் பாவங்களைப் போக்கி விடுவிக்கவேண்டும்.” என்றார் புத்தார்.

    இதுதான் உள்ளம்பனா திருவிழா ஆரம்பமானது பற்றிய விளக்கம்.

    எதிர்வரும் 10/082019 அன்று ‘Kechara Forest Retreat’ -ல் இந்த திருவிழா நடைபெற இருக்கிறது. நீங்களும் இந்த திருவிழாவில் கலந்துகொண்டு உங்கள் மூதாதையர்கள், உங்களை விட்டுப் பிரிந்த உங்களின் அன்புக்குறியவர்கள் ஆகியோரின் ஆத்ம சாந்திக்காக வேண்டிக்கொள்ளலாம். உங்களுக்காகவும் உங்களின் முன்னேற்றத்திற்காகவும் நடைபெறும் பூஜையிலும் கலந்துகொள்ளலாம்.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful video sharing your thoughts with us . I have watch and listened over a few times to understand the deeper meaning behind it. In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves.
    Along our path from childhood to adult , each our us have a story , but what ever we went through is a experience of a life time and is the past. What matter now we learn, make a determined effort to learn dharma , use it, practice it and move on with it. What we learn is a matter of gathering knowledge, wisdom is applying that knowledge and that is our choice. Choice is the greatest gift we get from life. The choices we make every minute of every day can contribute to making someone’s life better and happier. Be kind , caring, compassion, loving ,generous and to benefits others to those around us is my choice. And the choices we make are ultimately our own and the process never ends until we die. Start now and it never too late to learn.
    Thank again Rinpoche with folded hands.

    Buddhists believe death is a natural part of the life cycle. They believe that death simply leads to rebirth. For Buddhists death is not the end of life, so it is not something to be feared. Where and how a person is reborn depends on their good and bad actions in past lives. I do believe in the existence of reincarnation yet in this modern society still many do not believe . Reincarnation is a universal phenomenon and everyone of us live their lives on reincarnation. That’s very true. What ever things we do before and after will becomes karma , eventually will come back to us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful teachings.

    Powerful video questions and answers tell us all we have to know. Rinpoche explains well enough for us to understand.
    The benefits of social media are obvious yet social media has a greater impact on our spiritual health and wellbeing. We can stay updated with our friends and reconnect with old ones. In long term it do more harm than benefit us. As a whole learning and practicing dharma transforming our mind is the correct choice. Social media will leads us to no where , where else dharma will. Instead of respecting nature, they destroyed and exploit nature . Very clear explanation by Rinpoche using rain, milk as an example for us all to understand the elementals factors of it.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Bigfoot is such a mystical creature. So far, only one very clear image of bigfoot was captured in a video. The interesting thing is, a creature similar to Bigfoot is also reported in the Himalayan region and China apart from those reported in North America.

    Bigfoot is also said to be a messenger of the high lamas in Tibet. They help to deliver messages from one lama to another. Bigfoots do not want to show up in front of human beings maybe it is because they know human beings always have a bad intention. If they are captured by human beings, they will most likely be kept in a laboratory for scientists to do research on them.

    Rinpoche’s sadhanas take a long time each day because he is responsible for several important lineages. He has to be able to uphold the sadhana commitments of all these practices so he is qualified to confer the initiation of that practice when the need arises. Rinpoche has explained that this is part and parcel of what a lama has to do in order to benefit others and proliferate the teachings and practices.

    That particular night, Rinpoche decided he was going to explain the short sadhana of Dorje Shugden and felt this student would benefit from the knowledge. Not only would it help her to write, but it would also add to the richness of her spiritual learning. Rinpoche also wanted to show his appreciation to her for delaying her trip back to the USA, in order to contribute to the blog. And so Rinpoche invited her to join the session, and to see for herself other behind-the-scenes aspects of the work we do. This photograph captures that joyous meeting between student and teacher.

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

    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
