Mooncake festival at KFR!

Sep 23, 2012 | Views: 1,068

Today, the Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) team held an event at KFR to celebrate the mooncake festival. I received many wonderful updates from a few of my students who attended the event. It started at 5:30pm and was supposed to end at 8:30pm but everyone had so much fun that it ended an hour later!

There were many new faces… when the guests arrived, everyone socialized for a while to get to know one another. Everyone then made candle offerings to the Buddha under the famous tree at KFR. This was followed by a short prayer led by Pastor Susan. How beautiful. Pastor Susan really has your spiritual benefit in mind.

A short video was then shown to the guests on the construction done so far at KFR. Then it was dinner time! There was a variety of Western and Eastern foods… and Sofi Lim prepared her popular cakes for everyone to enjoy too!

The group then split into two: adults and kids. The kids had a sing-a-long and games session… while the older kids grouped together and kept an eye out on the younger ones, making sure that they are safe at all times. I like it when people look out for each other… it shows how much they care about others. Wonderful that these children start cultivating this trait from a young age.

While the children were playing, the adults were given a short teaching on meditation by Pastor Susan. She kindly guided them through a brief meditation session to make sure they understand the teaching fully. The adults were very attentive during the Dharma talk and thankful towards Pastor Susan for teaching them a method to find inner peace which they can apply even in their homes.

After the teaching, there was a barbeque and enjoyed mooncakes. The kids played around with their lanterns and had fun walking around the beautiful green KFR grounds. At around 9.30pm , the bus arrived to take everyone back to Kechara House.

It is so wonderful to see so much happening around at KFR. KFR is a very blessed land, and I hope that many people will be able to visit here in the near future to enjoy nature, heal their body and practice spirituality with their Dharma brothers and sisters. Do look at the pictures. What did you do for this year’s mooncake festival?

 Ms. Any and Bean helped out with the PA system again! They came earlier to have everything set up before the guests arrive.

 

 

 The children having a good time! Exploring their creativity in the forest certainly is good for children to learn and grow close together as Dharma brothers and sisters.

 

 

 Good friends, these two boys are regulars in the Manjushri Kids Class. Now they are good Dharma brothers that support each other in every way.

 

 

 Guests starting to arrive at KFR for the festival, they took a short walk into the tent area.

 Grace Leong brought a good friend of hers to the event today. Wonderful that Kecharians are starting to share spirituality with close friends. We should start with our close friends first before we can reach out to more people…

Lanterns lit after the sun set… this reminds me very much of my childhood in Taiwan…

 

 

More lanterns decorated the parameters of the tent…

 

 

After dinner, the children were gathered and lead to another tent to play games and sing-along songs.

 

 

 Two guitarists came to KFR to entertain the children with a sing-a-long. Songs of praise to the Buddhas were taught and sang by the kiddies today.

 

The children had a great time playing with each other.

 

 

Barbecue time!!

 

 

Everyone loves a good barbecue… here, Wan Hong and Kien are roasting potatoes for the guests. 

 

 

 Sing a long…

    A poem inspired by seeing a picture of my teacher, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche…

    In the sport of correct views,
    all that is correct is just a view,
    without permanence or substance.
    As long as we hold onto views,
    our sufferings are gathered 
    to be experienced without end.

    Without the strong methods of emptiness
    and compassion, bereft of merit,
    we sink deeper without respite.
    To arise from this samsara is but
    a dreamscape on the deluded mind.
    Therefore seek the guru, who confers the yidam,
    hold your vows and fixate on liberation 
    free of new creations. Free of new experiences as 
    there are none.

    A poem by Tsem Rinpoche

  3. Valentina Suhendra on Jul 26, 2018 at 10:43 am

    I was walking past a second hand shop on Western Ave selling old things. They had a Japanese-style clay Buddha which was beige in colour on the floor, holding the door open. I thought the shopkeeper would collect a lot of negative karma without knowing if he kept such a holy item on the floor as a doorstop. So I went in to talk to him, but he didn’t look like he wanted to talk or that he even cared. So I asked him the price and he said US$5. I purchased it so he did not collect more negative karma. I was 17 years old and that was in 1982.

    I escorted my new Buddha home and washed it lightly and wiped it. I placed it on my altar and was happy with the Buddha. I would do my meditations, prayers, sadhanas, mantras and prostrations in front of this shrine daily. When I left for India in 1987, I could not bring this Buddha along and gave it to a friend. It was a nice size and I made offerings to this Buddha for many years in Los Angeles. In front of the Buddha I placed His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s photo. I remember I was so relieved that the price was affordable. But US$5 that time was still expensive for me but worth it I thought. But I was happy to have brought the Buddha home. Tsem Rinpoche

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my
    own blog and was curious what all is needed
    to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it

    A nice place with a greens surrounding… KFR gonna be a great place for people to learn dharma and does meditation.

  7. James Long on Dec 18, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    Hope to have more of these activities in near future. It’s great retreat place for everyone to heal their mind.

  8. DR on Sep 30, 2012 at 12:48 am

    Only in Kechara can you find so many activities to cater to such diverse group of people. Trips, picnics, movies, pujas, retreats, community work, painting, art, shopping, dining, writting, movie making, animal liberation, pilgrimages, and the list goes on…

    None of this would have been possible without the conceptualisation and loving guidance of our Lama H.E Tsem Rinpoche.

    We learn, we laugh, we cry, we rejoice, and together we grow, in age and in our spiritual practice. What a beautiful organisation to be in!

  9. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 28, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    So cool I really like to meditate at KFR that would be so awesome. And to have a BBQ before that is simply simply blissful, imagine all the tatoes and corn on the fire pit!

  10. Joe Ang on Sep 26, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    It is a very fun evening. I think the kid really enjoyed themselves very much. I could hear their cheers and laughter so clearly from the tent area although they were up on where the hut area is.

    Truly an amazing experience to have fellow kecharian and friends all get together in KFR. An evening of fun, learning and laughter.

    🙂

  11. Sheryl KH (JB) on Sep 25, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the happenings and pictures here. It is nice to see that fun, joys, understanding about KFR and other dharma friends, lanterns, prayers and meditations were all rolled into one night within a few hours.

    Through activity like this, more people will come to know about KFR, better cohesion can be built among each other and the road to building up KFR can be smoother.

    I wish that KFR can manifest swiftly so that Rinpoche’s wishes can come true very soon…

  12. tenzin llhamo on Sep 25, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    It looks fun! So nice to see so many people visiting KFR and having a wonderful and meaningful time. Being able to circumambulate, offer candles and prayers all at the same time. What can be more meaningful than spending a Saturday night there! Its a must visit.

  13. Grace Leong on Sep 25, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    Wonderful trip ! Thank you to the organizers who put in a lot of hard work !!

  14. sweekeong on Sep 25, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    Very beautiful lantern and mooncake celebration at KFR! People can enjoy themselves with their family and friends on weekend at this blessed place. Adults can relax themselves after hectic work on weekdays while the kids can have fun playing and socialize with each other. 🙂

    Rejoice for all Dharma brothers and sisters that enjoy their moments in KFR. The moon there should be the prettiest compare with others site view. Thanks Rinpoche blessing that KFR may manifest smoothly…

  16. judy lam on Sep 25, 2012 at 12:04 am

    The smile and the laughter on everyone’s faces says it all – there is a lot of fun in a big gathering like this. Beneath all these fun are a group of people who worked very hard to make an event like this successful. Kudos to people like Pastor Susan, Kecharians & most of all for Rinpoche’s blessings always.

  17. June Tang(KHJB) on Sep 24, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    Wow so nice… this is a very good event to unwind from hectic working lives: a quality times for families and also a great get-together time among friends. Beside the joy and fun of food and games, there are the spiritual side of prayer and dharma sharings lead by Pastor Susan. KFR is a truly 2-in-1 brilliant get-away for all Kecharians 🙂

  19. Sean Pang on Sep 24, 2012 at 1:25 am

    Thank you, Pastor Henry, for sharing this important message. There are a lot of suffering and killings happens behind walls that people are too ignorant to find out. Killings are very common and in fact, it is a necessary part of the whole industry to produce meat that most people loves. Little did they know where and how did the meat come from.

    For us to have the meat, an animal will have to be butchered. There are plenty of suffering right from the moment where the animal is born. Usually, they will be separated from their mothers and start living in small and cramp places. Then, they will be fed an unnatural diet with plenty of growth hormones.

    When they are in good size, the animals will be butchered mercilessly without sympathy. This is the life of a farm animal. So much of suffering and pain created just for the sake of us filling our hungry stomach.

    The Peace book teaches us the truth that we need very badly. In our daily life, so many things draw us away from the truth, by entertainment, shopping, and so on.Harmony, love, care and forgiveness is what we need to practice day after day so that it becomes natural with time.
    One thing good is that nothing is permanent, not even our deluded mind and we all have a choice we can make each and every day when we wake up. We can choose to be positive and negative and the path we take for that day creates positive or negative circumstances in the future.

    Beautiful underwater restaurant in the Maldives called ‘Ithaa’, and it is built 5 meters (16 feet) below sea level making it completely submerged in the sea. The acrylic view allows the restaurant diners to have a 180-degree panoramic view of the sea.

    This is the world’s first underwater restaurant. It is highly popular but is only able to host 14 people at one time, so diners are advised to make a booking 14 days in advance.

    The concept is really unique. The structure was conceptualized in New Zealand, and built in Singapore. After construction, it was shipped over to Maldives where the restaurant currently is. It really is amazing how engineers and architects can create such magnificent structures. There really are no limitations to creating something from our imagination… Do have a look at the beautiful pictures of the underwater restaurant at http://bit.ly/2CD9L0P

    Beautiful Buddha standing at ‘Husain Sagar’ lake, in India.

    It is a lake in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India, built by Hazrat Hussain Shah Wali in 1562, during the rule of Ibrahim Quli Qutb Shah. It was 5.7 square kilometres built on a tributary of the River Musi to meet the water and irrigation needs of the city. There is a large monolithic statue of the Gautam Buddha in the middle of the lake which was erected in 1992.

    In another source: Buddha Statue of Hyderabad. Hyderabad is the capital of the state of Andhra Pradesh. Between 1983 and 1989, N. T. Rama Rao served as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. During his tenure, he spent large sums to erect several statues of people from the region’s political and religious history. During his visit to New York, he saw the Statue of Liberty and was inspired by the efforts to restore it. He said “I wanted something like that… That would have been my contribution to society.” Rama Rao chose to depict Gautama Buddha because “he was a humanitarian who told the whole truth to the people. It is our pride.”

    Oprah Winfrey and some of her staff recently took on a challenge… to go vegan for one week!

    For seven days, Oprah and her members of staff decided to go without meat, fish, milk, eggs, cheese etc… basically any product or by-product that comes from an animal. The charge was led by New York Times best-selling author Kathy Freston, who has sworn by a vegan lifestyle for seven years now.

    She said that “Everyone [at Harpo] was so excited and interested in it. I think knowing that it can be such a game-changer — that it can really affect you in your body and your spirit — I think so many people were just excited to give it a whirl.”

    In order for meat to arrive at our dinner plates, IT HAS TO COME FROM SOMEWHERE. In this case, animals have to be slaughtered and killed. It’s worse when the animal is mistreated right up to the point of death…

    We can’t always turn a blind eye to where our meat comes from… it comes from the blood and life of another being that is NOT WILLING to give it up just so that we can pleasure our tastebuds.

    Narrated by and starring Sir Paul McCartney, PETA’s shocking new video takes its inspiration from the most well-known quote in the animal rights movement and offers a brief glimpse behind the walls of slaughterhouses, factory farms, live-animal transport and the fishing industry.

    By teaming up with PETA to produce the powerful video – titled, “Glass Walls” – Sir Paul is helping to uncover the horrific abuse that the meat and dairy industries inflict on animals to provide consumers with cheap burgers, nuggets and other products. He also explains the massive cost to the environment for which the meat industry is directly responsible.

    Billions of individual animals are violently killed for their flesh every year – whilst others spend almost their entire lives confined in filthy, cramped conditions, where they are forced to produce seemingly endless supplies of eggs or gallons of milk.

    The concept of a meatless diet may be a hard sell for many athletes and their fans. The demands of strenuous activity necessary for games/matches or regular practices may require as many as 6,000 calories and 200 grams of protein daily depending upon the player and his or her sport. How can famous vegetarian athletes possibly meet that need without eating meat?

    While plant-based diets have been proven to help reduce the risk of diabetes, cancer and heart disease, as well as speed along the repair of torn muscles and tendons and improve blood and oxygen flow, some still emphasize the difficulty vegetarian/vegan athletes face when attempting to reach their athletic goals. NFL Nutritionist Mitzi Dulan explains that reaching the massive caloric and protein intake levels necessary is easier for some players to reach by eating protein-dense, higher calorie animal foods. However, the body itself more easily processes grains, veggies, legumes and fruit into energy. The only problem, according to Dulan, is that it takes a LOT of the latter foods to fuel NFL player body demands—as well as strict vigilance about the nutrients they’re consuming. Quinoa, beans, hemp, nuts, seeds and vegetarian/vegan protein shakes can help these famous vegetarian athletes meet their needs.

    Let’s meet some famous athletes who’ve gone meatless despite the naysayers and find out how it’s working for these vegetarian athletes at http://bit.ly/2CFdBqi

    Most of us has taken it for granted that we have a connection with Dharma, let a lone met a qualified teacher. When we have met a qualified teacher, we must not let go of the teacher because we are not sure when we will meet a qualified teacher to have him guide us in our spiritual journey. In order to be connected to our teacher and the three Jewels not only in this life but all of our future life times, we must take the opportunity to make offerings and do the practice. Sometimes, our negative karma is so strong that we cannot see the truth, but have faith in our teacher and follow his instruction without having a doubt. When we have purified our negative karma and collected enough merits, we will have the realisation.

    There are no second chances in life, except to feel remorse. Chances are given only once I do believe. If there is, it will be a miracle or considered you are truly lucky. Once you lose it , there is no turning back. One always have a choice and chance, grab it when opportunity come or else it will be too late. Having it , appreciate it once for all before our time is out. Learning , practicing Dharma is the best choice
    I have chosen even though I started late. Its never too late after all ,I found Tsem Rinpoche’s blog and since then it have changed my life.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful inspirational quote. Everything is from within ourselves. We gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which we come across. Courage is knowing what not to fear. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Compassion is the desire that moves the individual self to widen the scope of its self-concern to embrace the whole of the universal self.
    We practice compassion, kindness , caring and respect each other in whatever situation, turning negatives to positive.

    Timely advice for us. We have little control over the circumstances around us. Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing it. Live our life with the understanding of how precious every single day would be. Our time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life . Engage in those essential activities such as learning and practicing Dharma that will give us true purpose, clarity, and meaningful in life. All of us are worthy if we transform ourselves, turning negatives to positives, laziness to working hard towards our goal in life.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The Miraculous White Tara of the Majapahit Empire

    Supriyono lived in a village in Indonesia’s East Java Province. In early October 2011, he dreamt of a bluish-red dragon surrounding his village before it finally dived into an old well. Supriyono took the dream as a sign and located the old well in the Brahu Temple complex in the Trowulan sub-district of East Java Province.

    Tales with My Lama: A Snapshot of Rinpoche’s Room

    Tsem Rinpoche had always been a private person and his bedroom was basically his personal domain. However, as a lama or a spiritual guide, Rinpoche would allow a number of his students and friends to intrude upon his personal space for gatherings, meetings and sometimes just to talk or watch a movie on his computer. Many people are probably curious about what Rinpoche’s room looks like and would perhaps like a snapshot that reveals a little bit more of Rinpoche’s world.

    Postcard from Raymond: “Monk’s Posture”

    To some, it may just look like a photograph of people sleeping on a fast-moving train in China, but it has deep significance. Sprawled around in the picture are men, women and children sleeping, but what is remarkable is the beautiful Chinese Mahayana monk, sitting crossed-legged in meditation posture with his head slightly bent.

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.
    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
