Sunway Pyramid Wesak Fair 2012

Dear Students and Friends,

I have just received an mms update from Beng Kooi regarding Kechara’s Sunway Pyramid Wesak Fair… and I thought it would be great to share this event with all my blog readers!

This year, Kechara has a prime spot at the Sunway Pyramid Shopping Centre (huge and one of the major shopping complexes in Kuala Lumpur…has everything you need) to host our Wesak Road Show. The theme will be “The Joy of Sharing“, and it will be taking place  Friday till Sunday (20/04/2012 – 22/04/2012). We are located right at the main entrance of Sunway Pyramid, with huge Kechara buntings placed on all 6 surrounding pillars of the concourse.

It’s Thursday night and many Kecharians are now busy setting up for tomorrow’s event. I love my Kechara people… they are always so dedicated, professional and efficient… working very hard to make every Kechara event a success. I like it not only because it shows their dedication to Dharma, but it has a deeper meaning to it, which is to bring Dharma to others.

There will be lots of activities lined up for the event, including performances on the main stage and games with prizes to be won! Some of the prizes include my blog merchandise hehe… Do bring your kids along as there will be many fun activities just for them!

KSA, KD, KP, KMP, KEP, beCause, MKC and KSK will also be there. Kechara Soup Kitchen have re-created a make-shift homeless shelter for those who would like to experience what it’s like to live on the streets!

Just like all of Kechara events, may this year’s Wesak fair successfully bring interesting events into the lives of many others. I thank Sunway Pyramid Shopping centre for their generous help, their cooperation and their genuine celebration of all the holidays in Malaysia in this case Wesak Day. Sunway Pyramid management are wonderful and helpful people to work with. I really really really appreciate them very much.  They really promote ONE MALAYSIA.

She runs an old folk’s home and also takes care of single mothers. She’s very happy to receive the food items from the Food Bank, and said that if more people were like KSK, her work would be much easier. I’m glad that we could help her in some way.

 

44

These two men are from the same home, Rumah Caring. According to Wendy, they were considered “failures in society”, but they both now help Wendy run the home. How wonderful that they now use their lives to help others.

    CONGRATULATIONS to all the organizing committee members, volunteers, friends and sponsors who helped made this event a success.What a fun, exciting and creative Wesak Fair!

    Thank you, Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this wonderful updates.

  6. David Lai on Apr 27, 2012 at 4:34 pm

    Yeah! It was an amazing roadshow with its diverse events and great awareness for the Kechara organisation. I love the long tall banners and the amazing Food Bank. I dunno where Dato Ruby got that idea but it was certainly effective. Every evening, the bins were piling in with food. Thank you Sunway for doing all this.

    The flash mob kids filmed their own performance and have uploaded it onto YouTube. Here is the link:-

    Kechara not only stole the show, but also showed many that doing Dharma can be fun, joyful and modern. Everything is soooo full of joy and love – Joy of giving and sharing. Whether you are a Kecharian or not is not an issue…… as long as you participate, you are considered as part of the family for giving, sharing and giving to benifit others, just like in all Kecharian events! Many thanks and appreciation to Sunway Pyramid Centre for providing the facility to make all these “Joys of sharing” possible. They are indeed caring and sharing like what our Guru, Rinpoche said in his master Blog,”Love is not getting what you want but giving what others need without agenda.”

    這是三天的克切拉团体展銷會,與去年不一樣,因為我們走向服務社區活動為主。我們有當天第一次展示的糧食銀行、克切拉地球計畫、兒童遊戲學習空間和各式各樣的舞台娱樂活動。這個展銷會,是一個靈修的延伸空間,每個到來的新朋友們,不分種族,不分宗教,不管是大人或小孩;都盡情地享受著現場所提供的活動和每個特殊的學習天地。

    克切拉的名字,在購物中心之間流傳著,它的特別之處在于不再局限於宗教的藩籬,沖破了这層隔膜讓大家體會的是人性本善的使然,是自在和無分別的。這是我在此次展銷會最大的感受。宗教不是一個距離,種族不是一種分別,所有的良善和本性隨喜的性格,每個人都一樣的,只是需要一個自由的空間讓它得以延伸罷了。

      “宗教不是一個距離,種族不是一種分別,所有的良善和本性隨喜的性格,每個人都一樣的,只是需要一個自由的空間讓它得以延伸罷了”——赞!

      今年的双威卫塞节,我感觉跟去年的不同。我超喜欢Star War星球大战的几个家伙,在克切拉的档口一点都不会格格不入,而且超酷!完全能跟Food Bank食物银行、绿色主题、灵修,哦,还有十几个年轻小伙子活力十足的嘻哈舞蹈融合!

      Gambateh !

    Thank you for the lovely info of the Kechara Wesak Fair at Sunway Pyramid. It was in a spectacular position, thanks to Kevin Tan’s assistance – on the lower ground right below the main entrance so that all visitors to the busy Mall would come in and look at the activities happening there over the weekend. The variety of performances and activities really gave people a different perspective of Wesak – which celebrated the Joy of Giving. People often associate Buddhism with austerity and silence.. this is a different presentation which shows that Buddhism can be joyful and fun – yet with the core values of giving and sharing. Thank you to all those who worked so hard over the weeks and months to plan for this and the volunteers on the three hectic days. It was a great time had by all! Thank you most of all to Rinpoche who shows us that with Dharma, we can be ourselves – but better!

  10. mayy on Apr 24, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    First and foremost we would like to thank and congratulate Mr Kevin Tan and Sunway Pyramid Marketing team especially Ms Wee whom has helped and assisted very much in bringing together this event by sponsoring venue and many other things. All Kecharians who were at there helped and worked harmoniously to bring joy, love and kindness to all walks of life there.

    We would like to thank all the committees and volunteers whom has came and helped to bring this event a joyous one for all.

    Most importantly, we would like to thank Rinpoche’s blessing and the blog team for posting up all these beautiful pictures to share.

  11. pastor ngeow on Apr 24, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    Nothing , not even the Dark Forces from Star Wars could dampen the spirit of Kecharians during the 3 day Sunway Pyramid Wesak event. I believe the Joy from sharing is all conquering.
    I congratulate all the organising committee members, volunteers, friends and sponsors who had helped made this event a success. In particular Kevin Tan , the COO of Sunway Pyramid who went out of his way to accomodate us.
    Last but the most important , we thank our Lama and Guru for blessing and inspiring us always.

  12. Han on Apr 24, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    非常有意义的活动,尤其是克切拉香积厨的食物银行,吸引了不少善心人士的随喜捐赠。
    从精彩图片中感到克切拉人的热诚和努力!

  13. jp on Apr 24, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    Wow! Thanks Beng Kooi for all the exciting pics! A BIG THANK YOU to Sunway for having Kechara!!!

    This is such a different Wesak fair. I like it very much because it embodies the qualities for Buddha’s teachings. There was so much love, kindness, harmony and care in the event. The energy was wonderful!

  14. Siong Woan on Apr 24, 2012 at 2:51 pm

    Thank you to Sunway Pyramid management team for their support in making this event a success.

    Despite being the 3rd weekend of the month (usually slow on retail sales as most people had finished last month’s pay while waiting for the next pay cheque) Sunway Pyramid was packed with shoppers. The entire 3-day was busy for those who were on duty, but it was a good avenue to share our joy with so many people.

    To those shoppers who so kindly donated to Food Bank, we thank you for your generosity and look forward to seeing you in Kechara!

  15. Paris on Apr 24, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    This is fantastic – so lively, so unusual. I don’t think I’ve seen Wesak celebrated in such an eclectic way before – especially not with Star Wars characters from the “Dark Side”? Kechara certainly does it differently!

    I wanted to also take this time to thank Sunway for their HUGE support not just in this event but continuously. Kevin Tan has been instrumental not just in supporting this Wesak event but is also a member of the education committee in Kechara. His lovely wife Michelle is also in edu comm, involved very much with the Manjushri Kids’ Class. So they are bringing Dharma to people on different levels – through education programmes, and also through shopping! Thanks Kevin and Michelle.

    Well done to everyone involved. Those quotes are fantastic too – a great way for bringing the blog to people and sharing wisdom in a truly modern way – futuristic even, with Star Wars!

  16. tfreon on Apr 24, 2012 at 11:28 am

    This is a fun and creative Wesak fair ! Kechara promote Care, compassion in fun ways. wisdom can be fun too.. 🙂

  17. Terri on Apr 24, 2012 at 11:18 am

    Wow that must have been wonderful!

  18. abby F on Apr 23, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche! The photos and captions are funny! I’m a big fans of Star Wars also!! hehehe… ‘Star Wars taking people hostage!’ is my favourite photo 🙂

  19. Kevin Tan on Apr 23, 2012 at 1:20 am

    In H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s blog, Rinpoche was kind to extend his appreciation to the management team of Sunway Pyramid. Actually, I am guilty of not doing enough to benefit others consistently. Instead, I am very gratefully to Kechara for giving any opportunity to benefit others. I, instead, is apreciative.

  20. Irene Lim on Apr 22, 2012 at 3:45 pm

    Wow, Darth Vader and his Dark Side troops coming to visit Kechara Wesak Fair at Sunway Pyramid!!

    • Charlie on Apr 25, 2012 at 12:32 pm

      Basically, the black one is not darth vader, It is actually Tie Pilot… hope someone can change it before some of our members see this, especially our vader boss… thanks

  21. Tracy Tan on Apr 22, 2012 at 11:17 am

    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

    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.

    Truly a selfless heroine indeed Neerja Bhanot an Indian senior flight attendant who died while saving 340 passengers on Pan Am Flight 73. The plane was hijacked by terrorists dressed as security guards during a stopover in Karachi, Pakistan. She died heroically helping cockpit crews escape in order to ground the plane so it could not be flown. Amazingly her quick action she hid passports of passengers so the hijackers could not determine passenger nationalities. She also managed to open the emergency door assisting a number of passengers to escape from the plane. But sadly as the hijackers opened fire on passengers and crew, Neerja Bhanot lost her life shielding the three children from bullets. Her bravery, courage and noble qualities , she was awarded awards for her selfless act and a film entitled “Neerja” was released, portraying her herioc life. A trust fund was set up in memory of this amazing woman. Even till today the Neerja Bhanot Pan Am Trust fund continues to do great work.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring story of a selfless heroine.

    Truly inspiring article, glad to know about the free community clinic of Acupuncture at Ananda Nagar. Firstly I would like to thank Mr. Charles Martley, for his effort to create a help center for the needy at the rural area. His great concern of the environment people and able to build a good relationship to reach them.

    I believe, ass long these free acupuncture treatments is effective, it will be accepted and will welcome many more to seek treatment. I ‘am also puzzled with the great humanitarians of the acupuncturist who work tirelessly, for these patients, as there are only so few of them but willing to render their service at any time without fail.

    Thank you for the sharing, hope to visit and contribute something for the project and do wish the program will continue to support and help the needy.

    There is a saying rich men have dreams. Poor men die to make them come true. When one is rich they take things for granted, nothing is valued to them and don’t appreciate things but definitely not the poor. The rich will derive motivation from their financial success, and refuse the belief that money begets corruption. To say it simple the rich will do things where else the poor can’t. People born with a golden spoon will not know much the sufferings the poor had gone through. When the rich understand the pain and sufferings of the poor they will be more responsible and generous to do more for charity. The rich working up from nothing to riches will know more and be successful in life. To me rich at heart is more important , good health and good sense are two of life’s greatest blessings to have. Well survey work of the rich and the poor for us to understand better between the difference.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

    All Buddhist practitioners or of others faith deserve to have religious freedom of their choice to what they want to pray. The ban on Dorje Shugden practice is unnecessary and illogical till to this day. The ban created by the Tibetan Leadership has cause much suffering to many people around the world. It is time for more people to speak up against this Dorje Shugden ban that has caused disharmony, discrimination, families and monasteries divided and so forth. The Tibetan Leadership not only make life harder for others but to themselves as well. They should accept their own failures not blaming others after all , they have been using the donations, for their benefits. Since coming to exile in India, they were given land , funds and so forth from many countries to help them yet they misused it.
    At this present time, what is most important is to lift the ban so as all practitioner be at peace and harmony , be true to themselves regardless of their choice of practice. Live life on own terms, not someone else’s, that’s makes life happy.
    All this while HH Dalai Lama have been promoting inter religious peace, harmony and understanding across the world yet when coming to Dorje Shugden practitioners it is not true in reality.
    I do hope the ban of Dorje Shugden’s practice will soon come to an end.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

The Unknown

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

  • 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
