[Written by the Blog Team]

Jimmy Tan has led a very interesting, focused and goal-orientated life. It’s with his positive outlook that led him to pursue his passion in the culinary arts after completing high school at the age of 17. He immediately set off to work in the kitchen, starting from the lowest of position and working his way up to a managerial post by the age of 21. 

Having garnered much experience from an early age and convinced that being a chef was his dream, Jimmy accepted a scholarship from Genting International College. It was a 2-year certificate program where he was specifically training to become a kitchen producer. After graduating, Jimmy spent 7 years of his life working in international hotel groups such as Genting Group, Trader’s Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel and Equatorial Hotel in Penang as a chef. Jimmy was living his dream job.

However, after so many years working as a chef he began feeling uncomfortable that he was encouraging people to eat meat all these years. Due to this, he decided to quit his job as a hotel chef and join an organic spa called Eco-Borneo in Sabah, where they encouraged an organic lifestyle. 

After spending a year in Sabah as an Organic and Raw Food Chef, Jimmy returned to Malaysia and took on a job at an organic food outlet called Just Life. It was during this time when he came across Kechara. He has always been attracted to Buddhism and Buddhist art, so when he first walked passed Kechara Paradise in Sunway Pyramid, he was naturally drawn to the shop. Unfortunately, one of his friends discouraged him from entering, and Jimmy thought that since the outlet was English-medium, it would probably not be suitable for him as Mandarin Chinese is his mother tongue. 

Jimmy calls it fate, but just one week after that encounter, he happened to walk pass another Kechara Paradise outlet in One Utama. This time, Jimmy decided to walk in and it was there where he made his first real connection with Kechara. After a week, Jimmy visited Kechara’s main Gompa (temple) where he met Pastor Yek Yee. Ever since then, Jimmy has been actively volunteering at Kechara for about 2 years. When Paul Yap (Board of Director of Kechara House), offered him a position in Kechara, he eagerly accepted.

Jimmy shared with us that there were many reasons that he decided to pursue a Dharma career, but his main motivation was to repay the kindness that H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and Pastor Yek Yee has shown to him during the most difficult period of his life. Just a month after knowing Kechara, his father fell ill and sadly passed away. Jimmy shared with the Blog Team that H.E. Tsem Rinpoche sent him encouraging messages and gifts in dedication to his father through Pastor Yek Yee. He was very touched by Rinpoche’s kindness of helping him and his family even though Rinpoche did not know him personally. He was overwhelmed with the kindness and thoughtfulness that was given to him, that this experience paved the way towards his Dharma career.

Today, Jimmy is a core team member in Kechara and works tirelessly to bring the Dharma (Buddha’s teachings) to others together with Paul’s amazing team in Kechara House.

  7. Joy on Nov 30, 2013 at 12:56 am

    So HAPPY for you Jimmy!Welcome to the Kechara family!!! You’ll be an inspiration to many out there that thinks working for the Dharma is not cool, is bad, is low, means you’ve failed… talks of the ignorants will be silenced! You are not only taking care of yourself here in Kechara, but also your future lives. And all that stress you get from outside, all that is for no purpose… at least if there is any stress you experience it here, it is for a better cause and with a great Dharma family supporting you. So yaay to you making the best and right decision of your life… it will be a beautiful journey 😉

  8. So Kin Hoe (KH Ipoh) on Nov 29, 2013 at 1:34 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the good news. Rejoice for you Jimmy! May you have a good start in spiritual path, gain more in Dharma and bring more benefits to people around us. You are truly fortunate to have the opportunity to work full time in Dharma.

  9. sweekeong on Nov 29, 2013 at 8:53 am

    Welcome, Jimmy! I got to know Jimmy when I see hum coming regularly for puja and to help at Kechara House. He also turned up often during Kechara organized events. Jimmy is very humble. Although he is chef by training I can see him doing non-chef related stuff, not being choosy. He has many qualities each of us can learn from.

    Now Jimmy can put his culinary expertise into good use in Kechara Forest Retreat. Very happy for Jimmy to becoming full time in his spiritual career in Kechara.

  10. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 29, 2013 at 1:10 am

    Heard so much about Jimmy’s talents in cooking! Hope I can taste some of it real soon.

  11. Jace Chong on Nov 28, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    Welcome on board Jimmy!!!

    It’s really nice to have a Dharma brother like you, who works tirelessly for others. You are very inspiring and may you have a wonderful spiritual journey 🙂

  12. Ashlee on Nov 28, 2013 at 8:34 am

    JImmy has such great merits to realize that being a chef doesnt mean that he has to cook meat. He is now still pursuing his dharma career by cooking delicious, healthy vegetarian meals. With all his past experience, cooking delicious vegetarian food is just a cinch. During the Tsongkhapa mini retreat at Kechara Forest Retreat on 25 – 26 Oct 2013, he conceptualized & catered the vegetarian meals for the participants. Everyone enjoyed his cooking very much. I actually looked forward to every lunch & dinner sessions but do not dare to over indulge as we were in retreat after all hence we have to control our “desire” and “attachment”. Jimmy is one of the testimonial that our Guru, Tsem Rinpoche has showered his love & care which helped Jimmy to become a greater person than he already is. Thanks to Rinpoche, Jimmy is now working in Kechara full time to benefit others. It is so wonderful for Jimmy to embrace Dharma.

  13. Sean Wang on Nov 27, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    Congratulations, Jimmy. Can’t wait to see you continually benefit others through your Dharma practice. I rejoice for your start of the spiritual journey of your life.

  14. Sofi on Nov 27, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    Oh wow, this article has revealed many things that I didn’t know of Jimmy. He is a very easy going, cheerful and helpful person. Now I know he’s a great cook. Yeah! Hope he is cooking during the Lama Tsongkapa Retreat on 14 & 15th December. Rejoice for you, Jimmy!

  15. mitra mitra on Nov 26, 2013 at 6:10 pm

  23. abby f on Nov 25, 2013 at 5:58 am

    Yes Rinpoche, Jimmy is a good cook! Jimmy can be quite professional and meticulous in his works. He will take time to explain things if I don’t know something. He works quietly like you never notice he is there, but when the work is done, sure we will know it is done by Jimmy! 🙂 Keep the good work up Jimmy! Glad to have you in the Kechara family.

  24. Vinnie Tan on Nov 25, 2013 at 3:38 am

    Jimmy is a great person to be with. He is always very kind and gentle to all. He helps whenever he can, and that he puts a smile on his face whenever when he helps others.

    He is also a great cook. When he cooks for the events, the participants love it. They just cannot stop praising the great food that is served. Jimmy makes and does everything whole heartedly. I am very happy that he has joined the Kechara family to benefit more people.

  25. Ruby Khong on Nov 25, 2013 at 2:50 am

    Congratulations Jimmy and for making the smartest decision ever! I look forward to working with you. Kechara is also fortunate to have you onboard. You are a wonderful guy, talented (from the fabulous menu you came up with during the last weekend event in KFR)and very pleasant. A win-win situation for all involved.

  26. Julien Roth on Nov 25, 2013 at 12:14 am

    Its always nice to have more and more people join Kechara full time. It shows that a lot of people are interested in kechara, and this will help a lot with the growth of Kechara, which would mean the growth of the Dharma.

  27. Choongs on Nov 24, 2013 at 10:56 pm

    I cannot wait for Jimmy to run a cooking skills program and would love to participate. Vegetarian Lok Lok anyone?

  28. Rena Wong on Nov 24, 2013 at 6:15 pm

    Rejoice for Jimmy to join Kechara full time.

    Jimmy is a jewel given his vast knowledge in culinary skills as he will be able to contribute positively. During the Tsongkhappa retreat programme held in Oct 2013, Jimmy makes sure that every detail in preparing food is taken care of and ensure participants have enough food. He also went at length to list down the nutritions that participants will benefit.

    Jimmy is very humble, good-natured and down to earth person. He is very passionate in his work and determine to help others without hesitation. He is also a great team player in all aspect of his work.

    I sincerely congratulate Jimmy for joining Kechara and wish him swift progress and success in his work. May he be the light to aspire many young talents to join Kechara and spread Rinpoche’s teachings far and wide.

  32. Nancy Loo on Nov 23, 2013 at 10:20 pm

    I believe Jimmy has been pondering for some time before making the decision to join as a full time staff in Kechara. Really admired him for the decision he has made.i am sure with Jimmy’s addition will benefit more. Thank you and congratulations Jimmy and may you have a fruitful path ahead.

    随喜jimmy师兄贡献了自己,投身进入了佛法事业,佛法事业的道路不容易,然而却是如此的法喜充满,当投身进入佛法事业的那一刻,就背负上了救渡一切众生与弘扬佛法的责任,迎面而来即使是再多的困难,但是却是更贴近证悟的一大步

    感恩仁波切的无限大爱,因在您慈悲大爱与加持下,成立了克切拉佛法中心及许多的部门,造就了我们能够有更多的因缘能投身参与佛法事业,在里面实践佛法的修行,让我们有机会累积跟多的福德资粮

    佛法修行的道路不简单,参与佛法事业更面对更多的大风大浪,所有我们所面对的困难,其实都是我们自己无数世所累积下的恶因,而我们在净化中,当我们面对芸芸众生时,无论遇见多少状况,这也是一种磨练我们心识的机会,如修心八颂里的教诲,秉性邪恶众有情,恒为猛烈罪苦迫,见时如遇大宝藏,愿恒惜此难得宝。一切都是让我们学习的机会,吾昔饶益助某人,且曾深心寄厚望,彼虽非理妄加害,愿视彼为善知识。

    祈愿jimmy师兄及一切佛法工作者在佛法修行的路上一切顺缘圆满,祈愿其他的我们及一切众生都能累积更多的功德,好有因缘具足的机缘让我们一起参与佛法事业

    感恩仁波切祈愿您长驻在世常转法轮,无论佛法事业多难,我们都愿与上师您,风雨同路

    跟Jimmy在一起除了讨论食谱,还可以讨论健康和有机食品,他在这方面的确受过一定的训练,总是提供很好的咨询;当然他也会跟大家讨论佛法和他个人在这方面的体会。

    我听闻许多参与宗喀巴大师禅修的朋友对Jimmy的厨艺赞不绝口—如果有人䏻通过健康饮食认识佛法、认识克切拉、开始对修行感兴趣,这的确是很好的事。努力吧,你可以的。

  41. Ong Moh Mei on Nov 22, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    Welcome Jimmy to Kechara full-time. I rejoice in Jimmy’s commitment and gratitude towards the kindness of HE Tsem Rinpoche. For the past few months since the opening of Wisdom Hall in Kechara Forest Retreat, Jimmy has stationed in KFR often spending most days of the week in KFR. In KFR, he stayed in a bunk bed 4-person sharing cabin.

    Jimmy is down to earth, hardworking, willing to learn, very hands-on, helpful, reliable, always cheerful and an excellent person to have around overall. His culinary skills proved to be a valuable asset to Kechara Forest Retreat as we kickstart KFR programmes. I have heard only praises for the menu and dishes he has come up with for the programmes. He always has a team of volunteer helping in the kitchen and you can just see even though it’s tough and hard work everyone is very happy to come and help out cooking for the Programme under Jimmy.

    Jimmy is another testimonial of the results of Tsem Rinpoche dharma teachings. When we the students practice what our Guru teaches and show kindness, commitment, integrity and consistency in our dharma work, we will inevitably attract other people to dharma.

  42. Alex C.J. Tan on Nov 22, 2013 at 9:13 am

    Jimmy is such a gentle, kind n caring person. He is also very creative in his trade. Although i hardly know him but he is definitely a person that i would like to get to know better and learn from. He is a great addition to our Kechara family.

    Great news …. a new Tibetan Buddhist center was established in Hainan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai Province. It has proof that China has accepted Tibetan Buddhism and has open its doors to other religion as well. Chinese authority has established the monastery following the advice and proposal of H.H.The 10th Panchen Lama . Well Tibetan Buddhism is fast spreading to the other parts of China. China has invested in Tibetan Buddhist monasteries to produce next younger generation of religious leaders teaching Buddhist classics and political theories. In recent years, the growing investment and government efforts into educational resources mainly in Tibetan areas of the province have increased dramatically.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Jane Goodall a British ethologist has travelled from England to Tanzania in searched of what she loves to do. She ventured into the little-known world of wild chimpanzees . Equipped with little more than a notebook, binoculars, and her fascination with wildlife, Jane Goodall braved a realm of unknowns to give the world an inspiring story of protecting chimpanzees from extinction. She also shown us the urgent need to protect other species conservation to include the needs of local people and the environment. She was considered to be the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees and best known for her long term research on wild chimpanzees. She was dubbed by her biographer “the woman who redefined man,” has changed our perceptions of primates, people, and the connection between the two. Inspiring ,selflessness,compassionate, kindness,loving, courage lady with strong determination that’s won the hearts of many.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Thank you for your wonderful thoughts of sharing. It was quite interesting to know how effective some of our garden plants can actually helps us to improve our air quality . Thanks for your recommendation of the specify species of plants. Surprisingly they are easily available in our environment and also in our neighbouring garden. All this plants are considered to grow and maintain easily.

    I had a valuable information from this article especially from money plant, all my thoughts about money plant was a good feng shui plant but it is consider to remove toxins from the air. Very soon I going to have them in my house as well.

    Thank you once again for sharing of the natural way to improve the air through plants.

    Animal Rights and Human Wrongs
    “Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is ‘Because the animals are like us.’ Ask the experimenters why it is morally OK to experiment on animals, and the answer is: ‘Because the animals are not like us.’ Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction.”
    -Professor Charles R. Magel

    How would you like to wake up to a day where you have no pain, fear, anxieties, stress and you are left alone to enjoy the air, earth, sunshine, fresh foods, friends and natural environment?

    Well not only you but all animals would like this. Read this article on animal testing at http://bit.ly/32lnTac

    After years of losing her babies and pumping out milk for humans – when the cow is too tired and weak this is how her life will end —Animals in this condition are known in the meat and dairy industry as “downers.” According to the industry’s own statistics, each year, millions of chickens, turkeys, pigs, and cows arrive at the slaughterhouse either dead or too sick or injured to walk. The animals be…come severely crippled or ill after a lifetime of abuse in factory farms and a very difficult journey to the slaughterhouse, during which they are shipped through all weather extremes without any food or water. Factory farms don’t provide individualized medical care or humane euthanasia to sick animals: It’s cheaper to let the animals suffer and eventually die. The suffering caused by the meat, egg, and dairy industries’ cost-cutting measures is enormous.

    Back in 2009, Tsem Ladrang in Kuala Lumpur had an aviary which was 40ft by 7ft in the garden. It was built in a way to allow the birds to stretch their wings and fly around. The aviary had lots of fresh water, fresh food, Dharma music playing in the background, many natural wooden perches, mirrors, hanging toys, ropes, uncovered space for rain to enter etc. It was a great place to rescue and rehabilitate many, many birds… like a mini sanctuary in the city!

    The birds in the Ladrang aviary are not released as they are quite tame and would probably not survive outside. However, wild birds that come to us injured will be nursed back to health and released back to nature.

    At Kechara Forest Retreat, we have an aviary that is right next to the Ladrang. The aviary is over 15 feet in height and over 4000 sq ft!! It built in such a way that it didn’t destroy the original jungle land and trees, but it’s enclosed to protect the birds from other animals like boars, snakes and dogs. It also has some natural pools of water, and lots of toys and mirrors to keep them active, and the floor of the aviary is soft sand so if they choose to land on the ground, which is safe from predators, they don’t have to stand on hard concrete. The very best that we can do is to create a living environment that is most similar to their natural environment.

    Check out the video on the aviary, a few pictures of the birds and the aviary, and a short description of each bird for anyone who’s interested at http://bit.ly/2VPy2to

    Wonderful Korea – Gyeongsang

    This is the land where folklores, tales of heroes, and the ancient history of the Korean imperial kingdom are well-preserved. During the Joseon dynasty, Daegu was the provincial capital, and was the origin of the Silla Kingdom that ruled for almost a thousand years. Gyeongsang may no longer be the capital, but it continues to play an important role in modern day Korea, with half of the country’s presidents coming from this region.

    This is really something that will touch your heart and you will be amazed how much love and patient some people have.

    On a daily basis, there are many stories on the Internet of how animals are abused and neglected. A few days ago, I came across a story that I wanted to share with all of you…

    A man in the UK, Leighton Naylor, felt sorry for his goldfish when he became ill and unable to swim. Instead of discarding him, and getting a new fish… he made him a life jacket!

    When I read about this story of Einstein the goldfish, I was so touched by Naylor’s kindness! I love fishes too, and have many in my Ladrang. They are very smart and will come near me whenever I’m about to feed them… very cute.

    Naylor who treats all of his pets as a family member couldn’t bear to see poor Einstein in such a state… so he did something about it. It’s amazing how true care can bring out within us strength and creativity. I guess that’s why those who care always manage to find a way to make a positive difference in other people’s lives.

    Do read this touching story of Naylor and his friend Einster at http://bit.ly/2BiZMx5

    Sometimes you come across someone so unusual, don’t complain, don’t expect others to do things for them and just get things done themselves. These types of people amaze me! This man, Mr. Leo Grillo is an exceptional human being and he uplifts my spirits. I pray and wish him a very long life and admire his compassion. Mr. Grillo is a real hero!

    Many people like dogs or animals, but rarely will they get out of their comfort zones or commitments to do something more. Some I understand have genuine commitments they can’t escape. When we don’t want to do something, we can come up with all types of excuses that seem valid or we make them valid. When we want to do something, we just get it done without blame or name.

The Unknown

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

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