Actor Steven Seagal Keen to Rebuild Europe’s First Buddhist Temple in Belgrade

Jan 15, 2016 | Views: 755

Dear friends around the world,

I was very happy to come across these articles about Mr Steven Seagal planning to rebuild the Buddhist temple in Belgrade. I am reproducing these articles here for educational purposes as well as creating awareness towards this noble goal.

The Kalmyks originally came to Yugoslavia (now Serbia) during WWI to escape communism in their Russian Republic of Kalmykia. They were escaping the Bolsheviks. My grandparents, relatives and many of their communities migrated to Belgrade at that time. The Kalmyks wanted religious freedom in their practice of Buddhism. The Yugoslavians at that time gave full freedom and welcomed the Kalmyks to their communities. The Kalmyks worked hard, saved their money, farmed, and built their temple for worship. The Kalmyks and the Yugoslavians got along very well and the Kalmyks kept up their cultural heritage.

My mother Dana Bugayeff and her siblings (Uncle Naran, Uncle Giga, Aunt Elena and Aunt Meda) were all born in Yugoslavia. My mother loved Yugoslavia and often spoke of the old country. They had their house, land, and planted many vegetables. My mother, her siblings and many Kalmyks spoke fluent Yugoslavian as well as Kalmyk language. Their life was idyllic and happy till WWII where there was much upheaval and once again they had to migrate to the USA which became their final stop. Other ethnic Yugoslavians also migrated and settled in Howell, New Jersey along with my mother. They were our neighbors. Our Yugoslavian neighbors were warm, friendly, giving and were very simple and kind people. Some of my best childhood friends were Yugoslavians. My mother spent hundreds of hours visiting our Yugoslavian neighbors, enjoying Yugoslavian coffee, food and conversation about the old country. I really loved our Yugoslavian neighbors and their warmth.

While in Belgrade, prior to WWI, the Kalmyk community built their beautiful Buddhist temple which later was destroyed. They had their Kalmyk monks and geshes, and held traditional religious services. I have never visited this place but would like to one day. I am so happy to hear Mr Seagal will be rebuilding this historical Buddhist temple which meant so much to the Kalmyk community. I certainly would like to visit when completed. It would be surreal to visit a place where my mother was born and I heard so much about. I wonder if there are still Kalmyks living in Belgrade today. My mother prior to passing never had the chance to visit Belgrade and I always wondered why.

I offer my prayers to the supreme Buddha that this noble project by Mr Steven Seagal will reach fruition without much obstacles and I thank him from my heart. A Buddhist temple will indeed be such a blessing for the community in Belgrade and a testament to the Kalmyk people who brought Buddhism to Europe and America.
 
Sincerely,
Tsem Rinpoche

 

 


 

Actor Steven Seagal Keen to Rebuild Europe’s First Buddhist Temple in Belgrade

Recently granted Serbian citizenship, Hollywood action star, musician, and Buddhist Steven Seagal has expressed a strong interest in reconstructing Europe’s oldest Buddhist temple in the Serbian capital of Belgrade.

Seagal was granted Serbian citizenship in a special decree signed by the country’s prime minister, Aleksandar Vucic, on 8 January. The decree followed several visits to Serbia in recent months, during which the 63-year-old martial artist met the prime minister and President Tomislav Nikolic, and suggested that he could open an aikido school in Belgrade. The government also invited Seagal to train Serbian police in aikido. The actor, a friend of Russian president Vladimir Putin, said in a recent interview that he has big plans in Serbia: “I can do a lot here . . . I really want to bring Hollywood to Serbia. I want to bring the whole film community here. I want to build great, sort of a Hollywood-film infrastructure here.” (Sputnik International)

Europe’s oldest Buddhist temple, which was consecrated in December 1929, was constructed in Belgrade by political refugees from Buddhist Kalmykia in southwestern European Russia. Two years later, the street on which the temple was built was renamed Buddhist Street, and in 1934, the temple was presented with a golden statue of the Buddha from Japan. The temple was heavily damaged during World War II, and later demolished. The modern-day Republic of Kalmykia, a Russian federal subject of less than 300,000 people, is the only European region in which Buddhism is practiced by the majority of the population. As Tibetan Buddhists, the Kalmyks regard His Holiness the Dalai Lama as their spiritual leader.

Seagal, a 7th-dan black belt in aikido, rose to fame as the star of a series of martial arts movies, including Above the Law, Under Siege, and On Deadly Ground. While his acting career has been on the wane in recent years, with many of his recent films being released direct to video, Seagal has branched out with a variety of other projects, including in the fields of music and law enforcement, and several business ventures.

In February 1997, Kyabje Drubwang Pema Norbu Rinpoche (Penor Rinpoche), a lama from Palyul Monastery in eastern Tibet (one of the six mother monasteries of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism) and head of the Nyingma school from 1991 to 2001, announced that Seagal was a tulku, specifically an incarnation of Chungdrag Dorje, a 17th-century tertön (treasure revealer) of the Nyingma tradition.

While Seagal’s recognition was a source of some controversy in the international Buddhist community, Penor Rinpoche responded by saying that the actor had merely been recognized, but not enthroned as a tulku. “In the case of Steven Seagal, he has been formally recognized as a tulku, but has not been officially enthroned. He has also not undergone the lengthy process of study and practice necessary to fully realize what I view as his potential for helping others,” Penor Rinpoche said in a statement.

Seagal to Bring Hollywood Celebrities, Build Buddhist Temple in Serbia

After receiving Serbian citizenship, US actor Steven Seagal plans to keep busy: he plans to develop Serbian cinematography, promote martial arts and even build an ancient Buddhist temple in Belgrade, Seagal told Sputnik in an exclusive interview.

Over the past weekend, Seagal was granted Serbian citizenship after the country’s Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic signed a special decree on January 8. The decision came after Seagal made several visits to the country over the past few months.

Seagal has big plans for Serbia. He said he asked for Serbian citizenship because he plans to develop the country.

“I can do a lot here… I really want to bring Hollywood to Serbia. I want to bring the whole film community here. I want to build great, sort of a Hollywood-film infrastructure here,” Seagal told Sputnik.

In Seagal’s opinion, Serbia has a great variety of different landscapes that would allow filmmakers to shoot any scenes in the country.

At the same time, Seagal wants to take charge of Aikido in Serbia. Seagal has practiced the Japanese martial art since he was seven years old, and has used his abilities many times in movies. Previously, it was reported that Seagal, who is an Aikido 7th Dan Black Belt, was invited to train Serbian police forces in Aikido.

Lastly, Seagal said he was extremely interested in the restoration of Europe’s oldest Buddhist temple, allegedly built by the Kalmyk people. Currently, Seagal is doing research and studying the fate of the Kalmyk people in Serbia. If the Kalmyks had in fact built the temple in Belgrade, then the newly naturalized Serbian citizen plans to ask the country’s Prime Minister to rebuild the ancient Buddhist holy place.

The first Buddhist temple in Europe was built in Belgrade
by LJILJANA BEGOVIC, 2013/04/03

The Kalmyk Temple in Belgrade was the first Buddhist temple in Europe. (Photo: Wikipedia)

Although China is thousands of kilometers away from Serbia, there is a historical connection between the two countries. The first Buddhist temple in Europe was located in the Serbian capital of Belgrade.

Last week, the Confucius Institute of Belgrade and the Qigong Association of Serbia organized a lecture about the Kalmyks and Buddhists who lived and worked in Serbia at the gallery “O3one“ in Belgrade.

Kalmyk people or Kalmyks as they are called, began to migrate from their homeland of Dzhungaria in the seventeenth century. They traveled west until they reached the Don plain, where they raised cattle and lived a nomad life. The Kalmyks fought as elite horsemen in the Russian army, side-by-side with the Cossacks, defending the vulnerable southern borders of the empire. Since then, the area northwest of the Caspian Sea has been called “Kalmykia“ (today it is a republic in the Russian Federation), and there the Kalmyks struggled to gain autonomy.

In several waves, through the coastal towns located on the Adriatic Sea, many of them (around 400) came to Belgrade, where they formed the largest Kalmykia colony in Europe. At the beginning, they received assistance from the State Commission of the Russian emigrants in Yugoslavia, but as they were very poor, they also often worked in the toughest manual labor jobs to earn extra income. Most of the Kalmyks that came to Belgrade found employment at the brick factory and moved into cheap temporary settlements that were built around these brickyards in the periphery of town.

Kalmyks are Buddhists – lamaists – by religion and their supreme religious leader is the Tibetan Dalai Lama. With the help of the state and city, in just a few months in 1929 in Belgrade, a Buddhist temple was built to serve their religious needs. It was the first Buddhist temple in Europe. The ceremony of consecration in the presence of all of the Belgrade Kalmyks and many of their Serbian friends was held on 12th December in 1929. Two years later, in 1931, the street where the first Buddhist temple had been built was named Buddhist Street.

Buddhist temples all over the world are famous for their statues of Buddha. In 1934, the Belgrade temple also received its own golden statue of Buddha from Tokyo.

Buddhist past remembered

The Buddhists who lived in Belgrade were known as hard-working, humble and honest people who especially loved horses. They were the best coachmen and jockeys in Belgrade. At that time, many of the Buddhists kept their horses in the fields of suburban Belgrade. That is why that part of the city came to be called “Konjarnik,“ which means “a place for horses.”

The Kalmyks were considered good-natured people of the Buddhist religion, but they were also known to dislike communists and Bolsheviks. It was because of them that the Kalmyks had to leave their homeland. For this reason, the Kalmyks supported those who were against communism, and their closest allies were in Germany.

Basically, Hitler and the Nazis believed that the Aryan people originated from Tibet. This is why the whole story about the mystique of Tibet, Asia, secret societies and religion were closely associated with the Buddhists, especially the Tibetan branch of Buddhism. And when you see that connection, it is easy to explain why the Kalmyks saw great danger in the Bolsheviks.

The Bolshevik Revolution forced the Kalmyks out of Russia, and the same thing happened to them in Serbia. The Kalmyks, the great enemies of the Bolsheviks, did not want to wait for the Red Army to invade Belgrade, and so in late September 1944, they took all the holy shrines from the temple with them and fled Serbia to either Western Europe or the US.

During the combats of 1944, the Belgrade Buddhist temple was partially destroyed, and the new regime felt that since there weren’t any Buddhists left in Belgrade anymore, there was no need for a Buddhist temple. First, the dome of the temple was demolished and the ground floor was turned into a culture center, but afterwards the entire temple was taken down. There was nothing left of the first Buddhist temple in Europe, except for historical records, pictures and memories.

The Confucius Institute of Belgrade and the Serbia Qigong Association plan to preserve those memories in a museum to be built on the old site of the temple. There, visitors would be able to learn all about the first Buddhist temple in Europe.

    Wonderful for actor Steven Seagal who is Buddhist, having granted Serbian citizenship, decided to has expressed a strong interest in reconstructing Europe’s oldest Buddhist temple in the Serbian capital of Belgrade. He is also a Hollywood action star, musician, and intend to bring celebrities into Serbia as well. Using his fame as an actor he wanted to do more in helping the Serbian . In fact he is recognized as a tulku, but has not been officially enthroned. Having a Buddhist temple will benefit those Buddhist , preserving their culture and religious heritage of the Kalmyks. The Kalmyks had a beautiful history connected to the Buddhist living in China. So having this temple will help to spread Buddhism further into eastern Europe.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

  2. Wai Meng Wan on Jun 11, 2016 at 5:49 am

    I am really happy to hear that Steven Seagal is taking steps to bring the Dharma to a place like Yugoslavia. When a dharma center is built then the dharma can grow and many people can get access to the dharma teachings.
    I rejoice that Steven Seagal is taking an active role to grow the dharma, and using his fame and connections to bring the dharma to a region that has no dharma.

  3. Joy on Jan 25, 2016 at 11:16 pm

    Great to know that Mr. Seagal is keen to rebuild Europe’s first Buddhist temple. This can revive Buddhism in Belgrade and even Europe. It’s nice to see celebrities give back to society in a positive way but what Seagal will be doing is even better because by rebuilding a Dharma temple. It can bring benefit to so many people in this and future lives. It can plant seeds of Enlightenment to so many. How meritorious for Him to be such a virtuous deed.

    I really hope this project of his will pull through, that there will no obstacles towards this project and everything is smooth so that Dharma can be revived and spread in Europe again. Yes it would be awesome to visit this temple once it is rebuilt.

  4. Shelly tai on Jan 21, 2016 at 3:45 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this great news, rebuilding a holy place is important because then it will help the holy Buddha teaching to spread to more people is a very kind act that Mr Steven Seagal has proposed this plan to the PM of Serbia.

  5. Jutika Lam on Jan 20, 2016 at 9:54 pm

    Steven Seagal’s plans for Serbia is really something wonderful.

    It is great to see that Steven is optimistic to expanding the movie businesses beyond Hollywood to Serbia.

    Not many people might know much about Serbia right now but with Steven Seagal’s plans of turning it in to a global movie hub like Hollywood, the world would get to know about Serbia seeing that when much awaited movies start being filmed and produced from Serbia, more people would be curious to know about the country.

    Apart from doing this for the movie industry, it is even better to know that Steven Seagal will also be doing something for Buddhism, which is the reconstructing of Europe’s oldest temple.

    Restoring old buildings is not an easy task because the materials used to build the particular building last time may no longer be available anymore and alternatives have to be sourced.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this news!

  6. Sarah on Jan 20, 2016 at 4:47 pm

    It is very kind of Steven Segal to offer to rebuild the first Buddhist temple in Belgrade. It is important to preserve this cultural and religious heritage of the Kalmyk people. If there are still Kalmyks living in Serbia, then this could serve as a place of worship for the community.

  7. Lucas Roth on Jan 19, 2016 at 7:24 pm

    It is so kind of him to do that and he is aware of the significance of that temple, which I find impressive. The Buddhist religion is all over the world and it is a good one as it improves your understanding of life and how you live yourself. I am happy that he is a good promoter of a good thing that can benefit others, he is helping to spread the Dharma.

    Also, I would like to add, that he is a good famous person. (If that is a fair thing to say) I say that because he uses his fame and fortune to build something good and promote something good. Something that people can benefit from hearing, seeing or knowing about. That is a smart and good thing to do. So good job to Steven Seagal for that.

  8. Julia Tan on Jan 17, 2016 at 10:49 pm

    Thank you Mr Seagal for the great wish to rebuilt the Kalmyk Temple in Belgrade which is the first Buddhist temple in Europe. This is like restoring the history of Tibetan Buddhism in Europe and reconnect back the Kalmyks to Belgrade once again. I rejoice and looking forward to visit the temple in the near future.

  9. Lin Mun on Jan 17, 2016 at 2:28 pm

    Dear Rinpoche ,

    Thank you for sharing this interesting article and heartwarming action by Steven Seagal. By rebuilding this first Buddhist temple in Europe it will definitely encourage more people to know and learn more about Buddhism.

    I wish him great success in his dharma work and bringing more people to know the cultural of Tibetan Buddhism.

  10. Stella Cheang on Jan 16, 2016 at 9:28 pm

    The history and culture of Kalmyks are really new to me; hence I find this blogpost intriguing to say the least. While I rejoice in Steven Seagal’s virtuous deed in rebuilding the Kalmyks’ temple, it also dawn upon the fact that it was human who destroyed the heritage of another human race all because of self-serving interest and politics. As a species, we should really reflect on ourselves and think hard on how to educate people around us and next generation to stop any form of persecution against another human being.

    In Steven Seagal’s capacity as an international superstar, rebuilding Europe’s first Buddhist temple (in Belgrade) is a good way to let the general public remember Kalmyk people who brought Buddhism to Belgrade decades ago. It is also news to be that Steven Seagal is a recognized Tulku. I wish him all the best in his endeavor and may his deed create causes for more people in the Belgrade region to be blessed by the 3 Jewels and have the opportunity to learn dharma.

    Thank you very much, Rinpoche for this insightful sharing. I have learnt something new.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

    For centuries, Buddhists travel around the world to share the Buddha’s beautiful teachings with some decided to settle down to blend the teachings into the local culture. It is due to the kindness of these people that the Buddha’s teachings is available until today.

    In order to preserve the precious teachings, the building of the Buddhist temples or institutions is necessary as the temple is the point for people who share similar interests to gather to learn, study and practise the Buddha’s teachings.

    Seagal’s initiation and interest in restoring Europe’s oldest Buddhist temple Belgrade allowing Buddhism to pick up again from where it was left, re-introducing this ancient wisdom to the modern world, thus giving the locals an opportunity to trace their culture as well as discovering the richness of the Buddha’s teachings. Thank you!

    It’s interesting to know about the Kalmyk people and their history because it showed how prevalent Tibetan Buddhist was back then. Steven Seagal planning to rebuild Europe’s oldest Buddhist temple in Belgrade is a very virtuous project as it would revive and preserve the Kalmyk Buddhist heritage. On a spiritual level, it will plant seeds of Enlightenment to the new generation of the Kalmucks who visit the new temple.

    Bringing the film community of Hollywood to Belgrade is a great idea because it will create a lot of media coverage for the project. Tibetan Buddhism in the US is very popular and is one of the fastest growing religions in the country. Raising the awareness of Tibetan Buddhism via the film community is one of the most effective methods in my opinion. The film industry has tremendous influence on the masses. And if the film community is inspired by the project, they would produce movies and documentaries about it.

    I rejoice in Steven Seagal’s noble project.

    The Great Buddha of Kamakura ,is a bronze statue of Amida Buddha, which stands on the grounds of Kotokuin Temple in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, a temple belonging to the Jodo Sect of Buddhism. Wow…. it has long been the second tallest bronze Buddha statue in Japan,with a height of 11.4 meters. It is one of Japan’s most fascinating historical landmarks where thousands of tourist from all over the world visited yearly. The statue is an iconic sight and most visited by tourist in the area. Merely looking at this huge statue tells all and a blessing indeed.

    The Dharma Bums were a U.S. garage band, formed in 1987 in Portland, Oregon, United States. The band had performed everywhere, and sing varies of subjects travelling around the world. The best is even Dharma songs as well revolving around Tibetan culture and religion. One of the band members is a long-time student of Tibetan Buddhism. Listening to the powerful Crystal Diamond Vajra Dakini, is a blessing.

    In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, monastic vows are for life. But somehow Ci’en temple in Zhejiang province offers three-month course and part-time vows recently. Situated in the luxurious forest, Ci’en temple a small temple remains its charm with impressive landscape and Buddhist culture. The Buddhist temple decided to offer admission to civilians who wanted to experience a monk’s life, only to be overwhelmed with applicants. It’s a small temple , hence only those were interested in Buddhism were given a chance. Participants of the program will live as monks in the temple free of charge. They will learn about Buddhist culture, read its scriptures and will also perform all Buddhist activities as arranged. It’s a good training ground to live as a monk or nun to cultivate minds.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Shin for this sharing.

    Ditsa Monastery is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery of Gelug sect in the Huzhu County of Qinghai province. Interesting history of this Ditsa Monastery, been shared . How the reincarnated Lama’s body has shrunk into an incorruptible adamantine body. Nobody at the monastery has realised that the reincarnated Lama was a Great Bodhisattva who came to the world for all sentient beings, but as ordinary people. Its only after the Lama had passed away. Since then the monks in Ditsa Monastery became more serious in their practice and maintained pure moral discipline. Reading this post has gave me a better understanding of that Bodhisattvas come into the world with a variety of manifestations as explained by Rinpoche. Set as a reminder to devote ourselves to our teacher with sincerity and respect and everyone we encounter.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Meditation on death awareness is one of the oldest practices in all Buddhist traditions. Buddhist meditation practice of remembering that death can strike at anytime and anywhere. We should practice diligently and with urgency in every moment, even in the time it takes to draw one breath. Over the centuries Buddhism has evolved many different techniques such as mindfulness, loving-kindness and visualisation. Death awareness can serve as a real aid to practice, the importance of using every moment wisely, while we still have the time.

    n Buddhism, there are a variety of attitudes towards different forms of fasting . According to Buddhist tradition, Buddha’s holy form as the ‘Fasting Buddha’ serves as a reminder for us and inspiration of Buddha’s difficult journey to achieve enlightenment. Fasting Buddha Shakyamuni fasted for forty-nine days under the bodhi tree while subjecting his body to extreme conditions to achieve enlightenment. Although it is believed that the Buddha endured great agony because of prolonged fasting, he never gave up and had used the challenges to justify abandoning his spiritual pursuit. Interesting read. Looking at all those images of Fasting Buddha tells all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing ….a reminder all of us nor matter what happen , never give up in our spiritual journey.

    Reading this again, its worth as great teachings by great Masters and looking at those rare pictures is a blessings. More over listening the powerful Holy voices of HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is indeed rare and precious. Merely by hearing HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s voices and teachings is a blessings too. For everyone at the hall understands all about the Dharma Protector after hearing HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s explanations. The truth is the truth and it cannot be wrong. Interesting read with precious pictures tell us a thousands words. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s advice on Dorje Shugden’s Practice with Chinese, Japanese, Nepali and Spanish subtitles is incredible so many more people will come to know the thruth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing.

    They always say time changes things, yes true enough time has changed the view of many regarding the Dorje Shugden controversy. Finally we are allowed to practise Dorje Shugden. HH Dalai Lama was at Bodhgaya said that if people wish to practise Dorje Shugden would be fine for them. Great news indeed. H H Dalai Lama had said openly about Dorje Shugden .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Wow…. Very special indeed seeing this Vajrayogini statue given to our Lama H E Tsem Rinpoche by a young Malaysian in Bodhgaya, India. More ever given at the most sacred place, under the sacred Bodhi tree. That’s wonderful and it was later consecrated by Kensur Rinpoche of Gaden Monastery. Hence this Vajrayogini statue is very blessed and special . Merely looking at this special Vajrayogini statue is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Pictures of His Holiness 16th Karmapa with His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche tells a thousand words. Karmapa is Chenresik , while Trijang Rinpoche is Vajra Yogini. This is a true display of spirituality of two greatest masters of Tibetan Buddhism. They are really close together and have a good relationship just for benefit of beings regardless of the traditions they belong as such as Gelupa or Karmapa. Together they even cross incarnation each other, working together for the growth of Dharma. We are fortunate to see this rare photo of this Great Dharma Master.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Venerable Geshe Thupten a Tibetan great scholars and master from the Gelug tradition and was one of the pioneers who founded Tibetan schools in exile. He has upheld the lineage of Lord Buddha’s liberating teachings as well as continued his practice of Dorje Shugden. The Supreme Path to the Trikaya, text of quintessential Dharma was written by Geshe Thupten Lama. In the texts a very detailed explanations on the practice of the Six Paramitas or the Six Perfections, and other beneficial Dharma treasures was written. Geshe Thupten Lama has worked tirelessly for the Tibetan government in exile yet labelled as a spy. All because he has written a letter to HH Dalai Lama and expressing his view openly regarding the practice of Dorje Shugden. Reading this again more understandings and truth revealed. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great 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.
    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. Have a blessed year ahead from our hearts to your hearts. #2022 #newyear #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment
