American superstar Ms. Bette Davis. I could have worked for her but I blew my chance.

When I was growing up in New Jersey (USA), I lived with my parents in a two-storey, four-bedroom, 1.5-bath colonial house with a dining room, kitchen, living room and study. It was not a very big house, neither was it small, but it was big enough for three people because it was just my father, my mother and me living there (my sister was already married and had left to establish her own home).

We lived in a quiet and very nice neighbourhood, on probably half an acre of land. That was two lots which is pretty big, especially for a kid. In the front, we had a huge lawn with rich, luxurious green grass and hundreds of flowers. Marigolds, roses – you name it, we had all types of flowers because my mother was very much into all of that. In our backyard, we had a luscious garden with a lot of grass and flowers (like sunflowers), as well as vegetables like cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, lettuce and so on.

My childhood home in Howell, New Jersey on West 3rd Street. I was in charge of keeping everything inside and outside clean, trimmed and polished. That also meant gardening and cultivating the flowers and vegetables in my mother’s garden. So I was trained to do this since young and later on, it turned out to be quite helpful.

Of course, taking care of the yard and the garden, and doing the weeding and watering was my job. After school every day, I would spend at least two, sometimes three, hours watering the grass, the flowers and the vegetable garden. How much time I spent depended on whether or not it had rained. Once a week, I was also required to weed and once a month, I would have to cut the grass (which was a very big production) and put fertiliser on it.

The inside of the house was also left to me to do. This included doing the laundry, changing the sheets, laundering my parents’ clothing, washing, ironing, vacuuming, dusting, cleaning the glass and the windows, washing the dishes, cleaning out the refrigerator, keeping everything sanitised and smelling good – all of those were my duties and my mother trained me to do all of that.

So basically, what I did growing up, besides my schoolwork and playing with friends, was a lot of housework. Laundry, cleaning and even polishing my mother’s two sets of pure silverware and her China dishes. Polishing, cleaning, vacuuming, washing dishes, washing laundry, yard work – I did all of that and I became quite good at it because I had to do it and my mother had a very sharp, eagle eye. She could walk into a room and instantly see any dirt and dust, and anything out of place.

My adoptive mom and I. She trained me from a very young age to clean, polish, garden and cook and I would do it well because I did not want to be punished.

My adoptive mom and I. She trained me from a very young age to clean, polish, garden and cook and I would do it well because I did not want to be punished.

Not only did the house and yard have to be perfect, clean, trimmed and neat, but things also had to be placed in the right order. If I cleaned her bedroom for example, I would also have to clean her bureau where she had all her perfume, jewellery and her doilies. She had a lot of her things on the bureau, in front of her mirror when she got dressed and I would have to remove all that, dust off the bureau and spray it with Pledge for wood. Then I would have to wash the doilies that she had hand-made – there were a lot of doilies – and I would have to starch, dry, clean and put them back. All of her perfume bottles, which she had many of, and her jewellery also had to be put back on the bureau in exactly the same way she had put it.

And remember, I did not have phone cameras back then to take a picture and capture how the bureau looked before I started cleaning. I had to memorise what it looked like and put it back exactly as it was, or my mother would not be happy.

So it was like that throughout the house. Everything had to be put back perfectly and I had to memorise it. There were many, many times when I was punished for not putting things back correctly, not washing things correctly, not vacuuming correctly, missing corners, etc. So you know, living like that for years as a kid, you grew up with very sharp eyes, and you knew how to take care of the house and the yard.

On top of that, I was trained by my mom to cook. I did not advance very far in that because I left home at 15 but by then, she had started teaching me how to cook various Mongolian-Kalmyk dishes and some American dishes. I was not a very good cook but I picked things up quickly because I just did not want to be punished. One thing I was good at is memorising things. I could memorise things very quickly because I did not want to upset her. If you upset her, she would be very unhappy for days and I would be grounded and all that stuff.

Standing in front of Mark Keppel High School when I returned to Los Angeles in 2014. I was enrolled here for a short time after arriving in Los Angeles. After I got my GED, I dropped out of high school for good.

Standing in front of Mark Keppel High School when I returned to Los Angeles in 2014. I was enrolled here for a short time after arriving in Los Angeles. After I got my GED, I dropped out of high school for good.

Anyway, when I left home when I was 15, I hitchhiked to Los Angeles and after I settled there, I had to go to high school for a while until I took a GED. A GED is a general education test and if you have any problems at home and all that, if you pass the GED, you are allowed to leave high school. In America, we have eight years of free education in elementary school and four years of free high school. That is 12 years of education you get free from the state and after that, if you want to go to college or university, it is up to you. However, 12 years was standard for most kids growing up at that time.

I was in my second year of high school in New Jersey when I dropped out because I went to Los Angeles. So in Los Angeles, I sat for my GED and surprisingly, I passed. Once I passed and got my high school-equivalent certificate, I fully dropped out from high school so that I could work because I was living alone in Los Angeles. The only kind of jobs I could get were part-time jobs which were unreliable and not very high-paying. Because I was under 18 at the time (therefore underaged), I could only get jobs that were part-time because legally, under-18 kids were not allowed to work a full-time job since you were required to be in school. That was the law in California at that time, I do not know about the situation now.

Ms. Bette Davis had a long and extensive movie career, captivating American audiences for decades and working up until a year before her passing.

Anyway, so I had to work two or three part-time jobs in order to sustain myself, because I was living at a Dharma centre and studying with my teacher there. At the Dharma centre, I took care of the garden because although it was not my duty, it was my wish to do so because my teacher lived there. I also took care of the downstairs area of the house and my teacher’s room upstairs. That meant doing the cleaning, laundry, vacuuming, polishing and all that stuff. I was really good at it because I had been well-trained by my mom. So I was doing that in the centre and working two to three part-time jobs to support myself.

The corner of Sunset Boulevard and Western Avenue. If you are driving on Sunset and you go past Western (heading to the right), then you are on the Eastside which is where my friend and I were driving around.

The corner of Sunset Boulevard and Western Avenue. If you are driving on Sunset and you go past Western (heading to the right), then you are on the Eastside which is where my friend and I were driving around.

It is important to give you this background because of what happens next. One day, I was driving around in Los Angeles with a friend of mine, I cannot recall who it was. It was one of those friends who were short-term friends, people you were friends with for a few months and then they kind of disappeared or just fell out of contact. Anyway, I remember very clearly that I was driving around with a friend on Sunset Boulevard. Sunset’s divided by Western Avenue. Sunset goes East to West, Western goes North and South. At Western Avenue, when you go past Western Boulevard on Sunset, it becomes Eastside. When you go past Western Avenue towards the Pacific Ocean or Malibu, it is the Westside.

So we passed Western and we were in the Eastside driving around the area, I remember clearly, and my friend said to me that she has a friend working as the assistant of the huge movie star Bette Davis. I said to my friend, “Oh, really?” and then she said, “Yeah” and that she is quite good friends with this person. She said that this person has been working with Bette Davis for a while and is her personal assistant, and my friend had heard that Bette Davis was looking for an extra person, someone young to be like a Boy Friday, to run around and do things, and help the assistant with work in her house.

Ms. Bette Davis was not considered a classic beauty but her expressive eyes were the talk of the town, even lending its name to a song by Kim Carnes called "Bette Davis Eyes".

Ms. Bette Davis was not considered a classic beauty but her expressive eyes were the talk of the town, even lending its name to a song by Kim Carnes called “Bette Davis Eyes”.

I said to my friend, “Do you think I can do that?” and she said to me, “Why not? You kind of fit the bill. They want someone young, someone who can run around and is versatile.” And I said, “It’s to work for Bette Davis in her house, right?”

My friend told me, “It’s not just in her house. You would have to run around and just be available for anything. You have to be Boy Friday, which is to be available for anything.” So I said to my friend, “Okay, can you call your friend to say that I am interested?”

A part of me was thinking, “Bette Davis. I mean, does this person really know someone who knows her?” There was a part of me that was kind of like, “I don’t think it’s really real.” 50% of me believed it and 50% did not. Nevertheless, I told my friend, “Just get me the number.” So my friend called her friend, the one who was the assistant to Bette Davis, and she got the phone number to Bette Davis’s house. She gave me the number and I was like, “Really?”

So I got the number to Bette Davis’s house and I thought to myself, “Well, what can I lose?” I was kind of nervous because I was like 16, 17 years old. I knew I was really good at housework and that is what they required. I knew I could run around and clean; if they needed to do gardening, I could do that too. So I thought to myself, “Wow, the good training I had from my mom is really going to come in handy. This would be a full-time job and being exposed to Bette Davis, who knows what opportunities I’ll come across, and I’ll get better pay.” Plus they were going to pay directly in cash. It was not that I had to sign up for any official employment papers; I could just get cash, which meant I could work full-time, albeit illegally.

I thought, “Great, the things they require are what I can do and on top of that, it’d be a full-time job. And on top of that, it’s going to be with Bette Davis and who knows what kind of people are going to come in and out of the house.” I thought to myself, “What an opportunity!”

So I got my courage together and a few days later, when I was at home and it was in the afternoon, I made the call. I thought I had better call in the afternoon because in the morning, she might not be disposed. At night, being older, she might sleep early. So I called in the afternoon and I could not believe it. Bette Davis herself answered the phone. You know, if you watch any of her movies, you will know her voice, it is very distinctive.

She answered, “Hello?” and I went, “Oh” and thought to myself, “It’s her.

I asked, “Is this Ms. Davis?” and she replied, “Yes?” and then I said,

“Hi. I heard you needed some help and I wanted to help you.”

The minute I said that, I said to myself, “Oh god, that was the wrong thing to say.

Ms. Davis then said, “I don’t need any help” and she hung up the phone. I went, “Oh my god, what did I do?”

I just could not believe I had spoken to this American superstar. I should have said, “Ms. Davis, your assistant was looking for a young man to help with shopping, cleaning, some housework and some Boy Friday duties. I’m very interested. I’m this age and can I please come in for an interview? I’m a hard worker and I’ve been really well trained by my mother and I need a job.” I should have said that but I do not know why I said what I had over the phone.

Even when I spoke those words, I thought, “Boy, was that the wrong thing to say” because by reputation, everybody knows that Ms. Davis is a very direct person who does not put up with nonsense and she is not very patient with all kinds of calls. I mean, being the superstar she is, imagine how many crank calls she gets in a day, a week or a month.

For days and weeks after that, I kicked myself because I had totally ruined my opportunity. I asked my friend, “Should I call again?” and she told me, “By the way, you’re stupid. You should have explained more. I mean, she would have listened.”

I said to her, “But I was nervous. I was scared. I didn’t know what to say. I’ve never interviewed like that before, just over the phone. I didn’t know what to do.” I also asked my friend, “Should I call back?” and she said, “I don’t think so because the second time you call back, it’s going to sound like a crank call and people like her get weird crank calls all the time. And you know, she’s not a normal person. She’s a big somebody.”

To this day, I cannot believe that I lost my chance of working with Ms. Bette Davis. Can you imagine? All she said was, “No, thanks” and hung the phone. “I don’t need any help. No, thanks” and hung up the phone. I thought to myself, “Oh my god, what did I do?”

In any case, when I was growing up, every Sunday, around 3 to 5pm, they put all these old movies on Channel Nine. You know, Joan Crawford movies, Liz Taylor movies, Bette Davis movies. Every Sunday, my mother would watch those oldie movies with Bette Davis and all that, which was way before my time. All those movies are black and white and I thought they were boring. God, I hated those movies. They just talked, it was dramatic, there were no special effects, no phasers, no robots, no creatures from outer space. There were no creatures from the Black Lagoon and being a young boy, I was not interested in all of those black and white talkies.

Some of Ms. Bette Davis' movies would play on Sundays and my mom would watch it. As a child, I was not a fan of her movies because they were before my time. It is only recently that I have come to appreciate the cinematic mastery and acting prowess of this American screen legend.

Some of Ms. Bette Davis’ movies would play on Sundays and my mom would watch it. As a child, I was not a fan of her movies because they were before my time. It is only recently that I have come to appreciate the cinematic mastery and acting prowess of this American screen legend.

But my mother would watch all those old movies when I was growing up so I knew who Bette Davis was. I was not her fan at that time and I was not interested in her movies. I was just too young to appreciate high art because Bette Davis’s performances are really high art. She was the First Lady of the movies, the First Lady of Hollywood. You have to have very refined taste in acting and movies to appreciate her talent which, as a young kid, I did not have. I was interested in Lost in Space and Star Trek, forget about Bette Davis.

So I was not really her fan and I did not watch her movies. I was not even remotely interested back then. It is just about 10 years ago, when I was in my 40s, that I started watching a little bit of the oldies that my mother used to watch. And it was not until last year, even the year before that, that I started becoming really interested in Bette Davis movies and I realised the amount of screen presence, charisma and intensity that this woman had, and how she commanded the American screen. Americans are a very demanding audience, and this person was just so incredibly talented. It is only in the last few years that I have become a Bette Davis fan because I appreciate talent of all genres and walks of life.

I have grown to admire Bette Davis very, very much and some of my favourite movies of hers includes Strangers, with her and Ms Gena Rowlands. That was really a touching movie about how a daughter had fallen out of favour with her mother and how they reconnected. It was filmed when Ms. Bette Davis was already older but you have to remember, she worked for over 60 years. She was in the cinema for 60 years and she worked until one year before she passed away when she was like 81, 82.

Yes, she worked until the end and she was not one of these actresses where after 50, she had no more jobs. She worked all the way to the end and some of my favourite movies of hers includes Strangers and also Escape to Witch Mountain. I liked that because Christopher Lee was in it with her. I also like Voyager and Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte. What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, that is like my top favourite, it is so fabulous. There is another movie of hers called The Star that I like and also The Virgin Queen.

Dark Victory was excellent and very touching, and another one of my favourites is All About Eve. So it was Dark Victory, All About Eve, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? – those are really some of my top favourites and she was spectacular, whether she was acting when she was younger or when she was older. She worked all the way until the end, only stopping just a year before she passed away in 1989 and unfortunately, I became a fan too late.

Oh, I remember why I had talked to her in such a strange way to ask for employment. It is because I did not expect her to answer her phone. I mean, it is not every day you get a superstar’s telephone number and when you call up, they answer the phone, right? I thought her assistant or somebody else would answer, and so I would just be more relaxed. When she answered however, and I recognised her voice immediately, I was caught off guard and that is why I really stumbled. So that was the reason I stumbled and lost my chance.

Anyway, that was my little interaction with the First Lady of American Screen and one of the top actresses of the last century, and I blew it by introducing myself wrongly.

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? [The Original]

Starring Ms. Bette Davis and Ms. Joan Crawford, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? is a 1962 American psychological thriller-horror film produced and directed by Robert Aldrich. The movie is about an ageing former child actress who holds her paraplegic ex-movie star sister captive in an old Hollywood mansion.

Our talented Kecharians rehearsed this parody and performed it for me as a birthday gift, knowing that it is one of my favourite movies. I love it when people are creative and spontaneous like this, and really appreciated their efforts. Although Ms. Bette Davis’ talent remains unrivalled, nevertheless this is a must-watch video and EXTREMELY funny!

    I always enjoy reading about Rinpoche’s younger days and really respect that Rinpoche was able to manage all the housework and schoolwork as a teenager.??? I don’t know much about Bette Davis but love her wise quotes?. Thank you very much Rinpoche and blog team for this lovely sharing?????

  2. Samfoonheei on Jul 9, 2019 at 11:47 am

    Wow……account of Rinpoche’s younger days on the phone with Bette Davis an American actress of film, television and theatre at Los Angeles. She was one of Hollywood’s greatest actresses at that time and was looking around for an extra person who could help the assistant with work in her house. Just a phone call mistakes , Rinpoche lost the opportunity to work with this famous actress.
    I am not a movie fan and not heard of her before, so I really do not know much of this great actress till reading this article. What supressed Rinpoche , is that Bette Davis actually answered the call herself. Rinpoche was overjoyed hearing her voice but caught off guard.
    Watched the video of Kecharian verson on What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? Wow ….. hilarious dialogue between the two Hollywood legends and icons of American cinema, Ms. Bette Davis and Ms. Joan Crawford so called reacted scene. ….by Pastor Moh Mei and Pastor David Lai.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

      Dear SamFoonHei,

      That was … Hilarious! Thanks for bringing this up again. I also thought about it when I was reading this article.

  3. Freon on Jul 8, 2019 at 1:43 am

    I do not know about this actress much, but, when i read through her quote, she is a person who have wisdom mind.

    On the phone call that Rinpoche had with her, it is really a surprised to Rinpoche that she could pick up the phone by herself and answered. It is also a lesson for me to learn that, always be prepare in any situation and also never aspect everything should be happen on what we think.

    To think deeper, i myself have lost many good opportunities because of not being aware and being too into my own world and thought.

    The unmistaken incarnation of Panchen Sonam Drakpa was proclaimed to be Sonam Yeshe Wangpo. From birth, he spoke with clairvoyance and seemed to remember people and events of his past life. Even as a young man , he travelled tremendously as part of his retinue, with the 3rd Dalai Lama and gave various teachings as well. Throughout the journey, he had even composed verses to praise and commentaries on the teachings.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

Born in wealthy family yet he choose to he was ordained as a Buddhist monk. Already, even as a child, developed an extraordinarily where he could memorised Buddhist text. Master Hongyi dedicated the rest of his life to Buddhist practice and became one of the most prominent monks of 20 Century China. Interesting read.

    Spirits and unseen beings are everywhere not only actually restricted to specific areas. Places such as cemeteries, abandoned houses or places where death occurred. There are many different types of spirits around us, unseen to the naked eye, but for some they could see it or sense their presence. Many people of different faith reported having experienced sense the presence of spirits. Interesting rather scary reading Steven Wong ghostly experienced in the motel . I have encounter such before staying in hotel . More scary I can say. That’s past history, since coming to Buddhism I am not scare at all , I will recite DS Mantra . Later do prayers and dedicate to them .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Reading this article written by Tsering Shakya, again as it tells us more and understand better of the situation suffered by Tibetan people. Due to the Dorje Shugden controversy many Tibetans suffered . Many of them migrated to other countries to the west for better opportunities. Tibetan culture and identity is inseparably linked to Tibetan Buddhism. Somehow once in a foreign land they tend to lose their traditions and cultures slowly over times. Living in foreign land , it difficult to maintain their true identity. For them Tibetans maintaining links to the homeland presents a very unique challenges tasks. If only the Tibetan leadership more opened, forgo the past and accepts as what HH Dalai Lama said that Dorje Shugden is no evil and do no harm. Tibetan Buddhist could continue practicing the Dorje Shugden’s practice. Tibetan should stand united to protect the Tibetan heritage and culture instead discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners so much so had divided the Tibetans. Many of them left and migrated else where to look for better livelihood.
    Tsem Rinpoche had gone through a rough time , rejected twice from the moment of birth from Taiwan to US and travelling to India where Rinpoche found a place called home then. Later to Malaysia as advice by his Guru.
    To this end, the discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners must end for the sake of the all Tibetans living in India and Nepal .
    A very good article by Tsering Shakya, more people should read it to understand better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing

    Feeling disappointed when someone a Sangha supposed to promote peace, harmony and helps to give teachings to those who are new instead promoting hatred, cursing another person. Its wrong to tell people to break their samaya with their teachers. They must be given the wrong information about Dorje Shugden and Shugden Buddhist practitioners . The Tibetan Leadership has spread their lies and causing misunderstanding among the Tibetans. The rights of Dorje Shugden practitioners were denied just because for practicing their religion as they have done for the past 400 years. Dorje Shugden practitioners are side-lined from their own community, denied medical care, education and even employment in government offices. The Tibetan Leadership has instituted this ban against Dorje Shugden causing sufferings among many. Sad indeed hopefully these controversy will dissolve soon as more people understand and know that Dorje Shugden is not an evil as claimed by the Tibetan leadership.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this sharing.

    Buddhism is one of the most popular religions all over the world. Buddha statues have different shapes, sizes, different gestures or mudras and styles of presentation. Well said by Tsem Rinpoche the bigger and more Buddha statues makes a difference in our life. It gives out more powerful positive and relaxing energy to help us. concentrate better. One of the methods for us to purify our karma to suit our current karma-bound situation. By circumambulating 500 mantra stones one time we could accumulate much more merits in just one round of circumambulation. All thanks to Rinpoche having this idea with many mantra stones as possible for us to circumambulate. The larger the Buddha image, the more merits are collected the greatest amount of benefit for one who sincerely circumambulating.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this amazing post and explaining all the details for us to understand more.

    Ra Lotsawa said to be an emanation of Manjushri was a great tantric master who had used wrathful means to subjugate his opponents. He was declared to be a saint and a fully enlightened Buddha. Many viewed as a murderous villain with magical powers and by some as a liberator of human suffering. Ra Lotsawa used his power and magical abilities to defeat his enemies rather rivals to accumulate wealth. He received many Empowerments and practices, which came into conflict with other lamas. His life offers a rare view into the often overlooked roles of magic and sorcery in the Buddhist tradition. In the book The All-Pervading Melodious Drumbeat tells the story of Ra Lotsawa Dorjé Drak . It was written by Ra Yeshe Sengye, and translated for the first time into English. Despite this obsessed legacy, his fame also rests on an illustrious career as a translator of Buddhist scriptures. Ra Lotsawa was so revered in Tibetan Buddhism even though he was so evil where nobody can denied. Interesting read an classic account of one of the most colourful and memorable figures in Tibetan Buddhist history.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Tibetan incense is natural incense used in Tibetan Buddhism rituals for 1,300 years. In Tibet, for many centuries, incense has been a part of their daily lives. Widely used for relaxation, meditation and the cleansing of the home environment. Incense is also widely used in Buddhist temples and monasteries, as an offerings. In Buddhism, symbolic offerings are made to the Triple Gem, giving rise to contemplative gratitude and inspiration. Offering incense is a symbol of purification. It is a very powerful way to revitalize environment ,removing obstacles and purifying one’s karma. Incense offering to our Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden is indeed very helpful and beneficial. It helps in many ways as such to clear any obstacles ,and so on.All thanks to our Guru Tsem Rinpoche for sharing this practice .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Beatrice Ooi for this sharing and explaining the details of incense. We are so fortunate to learn, understand and practice it.

    Looking at the picture in this post tells all. That Russian boat workers risking his life just wanted to save this poor dog. Extreme freezing cold weather , yet that fisherman did what he needed to do. The dog was rescued and brought back to the shore ,running happily with other dogs. Sometimes it takes only one act of kindness and caring, truly inspiring. Let our hearts be stretched out in compassion toward others even they are animals, they are one us. Compassion conquered all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring post.

    11 December 1993 marked the date where a heart breaking tragedy strike at Highland Tower , located at Taman Hillview, Ulu Klang Selangor. It’s the very day when of the three blocks collapsed completely killing 50 residents. Bukit Antarabangsa area soon come to an almost complete halt as this area to be a high risk zone. The Highland Towers tragedy that happened is the worst high-rise building collapse in the nation’s history. The remaining residents shifted else way as the area considered not safe over the stability of the two other towers. Due to the number in deaths there it became haunted as many people have claimed and many creepy incident has happened. It is regarded to be the creepiest, most haunted places in Malaysia due to the Highland Tower incident. Its not surprising that one might have experiences or have seen weird things around the area. Krishna Rajagopal’s as one of them. Thanks for sharing.

    H E Tsem Rinpoche our Guru was the one who teaches us constantly, and has shown us the way. As we walk with the Rinpoche, we walk in the light of existence, away from the darkness of ignorance. Rinpoche was the one who teaches us what life is and also how to make the most of it. We are the only one who enlightened our path by removing the darkness of our ignorance and in the spiritual journey. Without Rinpoche many aspects of our life would have been unexplored. Not only our Guru will help us in our spiritual journey and in many other ways to transform our mind to be a better person. Enriching our life and widening our horizons. We are so fortunate to have connected with Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden in this life. Whatever advice given by Dorje Shugden should be taken seriously as Dharma.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands for imparting the immense wealth of knowledge and wisdom. I am where I am only because of Rinpoche.

    Language is important in every aspect of our lives as it allows people to communicate in a manner that enables the sharing of common ideas. More or less a communication tool used by everyone in their daily life . A very good idea of having Dharma teachings or whatever for more people to understand. Having Dharma in other languages where more people will get to learn and practice Dharma. Now its available in Nepali and Indonesian languages.…… a big hand applause to Valentina Suhendra and Mitra. Both are long time students of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche . Their fellow countrymen working in Malaysia and around the world will understand it better and may receive the benefits of practicing it. More will get to know of the Powerful Dorje Shugden .
    Thank you Rinpoche

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

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral.

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

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

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