YAKs at the Taman Megah Orphanage!

Apr 9, 2015 | Views: 365

Dear students and friends,

In January, I blogged about a group of Young Adults and Kids from Kechara, which we fondly call the YAKs! Every 2 months, on a Sunday, from 10am to 5pm, the YAKs will set up their stall at the Amcorp Mall flea market where they sell various interesting items to the Malaysian public.

Through their own initiative, they collect resell-able items from their family and friends, they bring all of the items to the mall, they set up their own stall, they learn how to sell and promote their own stall and even keep tabs on their own accounts!

Their consistent weekly efforts to sell at the flea market has not only helped them to develop valuable qualities such as consistency, gratitude, and hard work… but their efforts has resulted in them being able to help an orphanage! With the amount that they raised, their “Big Sister” Ms Sock Wan, arranged for them to purchase 4 trolleys worth of necessities at a local supermarket… and in the 2nd week of March, they visited the Taman Megah Center for Disabled Children to spend their time with the children there, as well as deliver food provisions.

I rejoice for them being able to help others. This group of Young Adults and Kids (YAKs) ranging from the age of 12 to 20 show us by example how if we care enough to help, we’ll always find a way.

I am very proud of these young, educated and kind children that we have in Kechara. I hope that they would continue their good community works and inspire many young adults to follow in their footsteps. Life is more that just having fun and going out with friends, there is also meaning in helping the less fortunate and I’m glad that these children have found meaning in carrying good works such as this initiative. Do take a look at the beautiful pictures below, as well as the write up done by Ms Sock Wan, and one of the YAKs, Beatrix Ooi.

Happiness can be so simple ~ Kechara YAK’s visit to Taman Megah Center for Disabled Children (Pusat Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Taman Megah)

By Beatrix Ooi and Wee Sock Wan

On the 14th March 2015, Kechara YAK visited Taman Megah Center for Disabled Children (Pusat Pejagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Taman Megah) located in Petaling Jaya. The center is founded by the very compassionate late Mr Manikumar in 1997 and it is registered under the Department of Welfare in Malaysia as a non-profit organisation. The late Mr Manikumar was not a rich man, he was a handicapped individual himself. Perhaps due his own disability, he was determined to help those who were like him or less fortunate than him, which made him inspired many people to look beyond themselves to help others.

The charity home have to raise funds themselves to provide accommodation, food, medication as well as hire caretakers amongst many other tasks for the residents at the center. There are about 110 residents living in the center, with ages ranging from 5 to 50 years old and 32 staffs. Most of the residents here are slow learners, physically handicapped and abandoned by their families. About 30 of them are normal children who are attending schools. Apart from the staffs who are managing the day to day operations, there are also 3-4 professional physiotherapists who takes care of the bed-ridden residents. Come June 2015, they will be moving to a bigger premise with better facilities that can accommodate up to 400 residents.

Prior to the visit, we had a fund raising day at  Amcorp Mall flea market for the purpose of raising funds to buy some groceries for the center. The day before the visit, with the funds we have raised, we headed to Tesco to buy some groceries for the centre. There was a lot of planning done before the actual purchase itself. Edward had to go to the supermarket to find out the prices of different items and Beatrix had to plan for the quantity to purchase so that our shopping would not exceed our budget. Then we had to arrange the logistic. When we arrived at Tesco, there were quite a lot of items we wanted to buy, so we divided ourselves into 3 groups, with each group in-charged of getting different items. Good planning really helped to reduce the amount of time needed to complete the tasks. It only took us about 30 minutes to finish our shopping! It was definitely a whole new experience for most of us as we had not done such extensive grocery shopping prior to this – as shopping were usually done by our parents! We have learnt a lot, from making sure that products do not exceed their expiry dates, to comparing prices and masses of the products. We got the hang of it and become more efficient as we progressed! We bought 4 cart loads of items for the center including milk powder, various canned food, rice, toiletries, and spices amongst others. Apart from the groceries, we also catered lunch from Kechara Oasis Vegetarian Restaurant for the residents in the center.

The next morning, we arrived at the center at 10:30 am and was welcomed by the person in charge, Mrs Menon. After unloading and arranging the items we bought, Mrs Menon gave us a very detailed tour or rather background of the center and also ] shared with us the stories of some of the residents in the center. After the tour, we started to set up the dining area as it was lunch time. We had ordered some really delicious vegetarian food from Kechara Oasis Vegetarian Restaurant. YAK were the waiters for the day where we individually served the food to each resident and made sure they were fed and full. The residents were very well trained and disciplined, they came out from the center in a very orderly manner and sat down quietly, waiting for the food to be served. What amazed us was that some slow learners who were more capable would help to feed the less capable ones before they ate their food. They would help to clean their faces, wipe their mouths, and lead them back to their respective resting areas and would then come back to eat their lunch. They would eat slowly, keeping the table and their clothes as clean as possible. It was especially heart-warming to see how they take care of each other even though they are completely not related at all.

The visit did not end here as we also prepared some fun activities to interact with the residents. Since we did not have any prior experiences of arranging activities for the slow learner, we asked a Kecharian friend of ours, Anna Tan who specialize in teaching individuals with special needs to guide and help us with the activities. She evaluated the condition of the residents and designed some activities for them. The activities were very simple but they were designed to stimulate the movements of their limbs. We prepared some nice music to dance with them, played ‘ball-throwing’ games and we also played a game called ‘passing the ice bag’. The residents enjoyed it very much, they were all joyously smiling and laughing throughout the time. Even though it was only a 1.5 hour session,  it was really meaningful as we brightened up their day.

When we were leaving the center the residents came up  to give us a hug. They were not able to use words to express their appreciation  so this was their best way  of saying “thank you”. We were really touched by their gestures. It was a day well-spent with these wonderful human beings. We will definitely not forget about  our precious day spent here. We made a promise to the residents that we will visit them again.

Through spending time with the residents, we found that what really warmed their hearts and made them happy was the time that  we had spent interacting with them. This was when we realised happiness does not necessarily come from having material items. For us, knowing that we made someone happy,  it made us happy too. Happiness can be so simple!

On 13th March, Kechara YAK went to the Tesco supermarket together to purchase the groceries for Taman Megah Center For The Disabled. This was the first time we’ve purchased so much items and managed the payment at the check out

 

Ba Qin and Edward were sorting out the items before putting them in the bags

 

These were the items we bought, there were rice, canned food, milk powder, sugar, spices, cleaning products, and many other items on the orphanage’s wish list

 

On the 14th March, we arrived at the center in the morning to deliver the groceries

 

We took everything out from the plastic bags and arranged them nicely by category so it would be easier for the center to do inventory record

 

YAK from the bottom of our heart would like to thank all the sponsors for contributing to us… due to their kindness, we were able to purchase so much items to the center

 

We have also brought some toys to give to the children in the center. There were toys for both boys and girls. Happy!

 

Mrs Menon (on the right), one of the caretakers in the center, gave a short introduction about the center to YAK members

 

The residents in the center have different kind of disabilities, some were mentally challenged while some physically disabled

 

For the welfare of their residents, the center hired a few professional therapists who would conduct physiotherapy treatments and massage the limbs of bedridden residents

 

We also catered lunch from Kechara Oasis. It was wonderful that we had the chance to serve the residents as well as the kind staff in this orphanage

 

Delicious vegetarian food from Kechara Oasis

 

The residents were glad to have lunch with us! We did not do much, but they were happy that someone actually thought about them and would organise a nice lunch for all of the residents. Look at how closely knitted this community is… everyone helps each other, those whom are physically able would help physically challenged residents to walk

 

Beatrix (second from the left), Jutika (third from the left), Edward (forth from the left) and William (fifth from the left) were making sure everyone had their share of food

 

Everyone was enjoying their food. We were so happy that they liked the food

 

The residents showed us what it means to be a close and harmonious community, as they clean up the tables after their meals. They would put the empty plates and cutleries back to where it belonged

 

Game time! William and Anna were preparing the props for the activity. One of the children was very excited to play

 

Looks like YAK members were enjoying themselves too!

 

The residents in the center loved music, they would start to dance whenever they hear the music and would ask for an encore when the music ends!

 

The dancing activity was not only fun, but a great exercise session for the residents in the orphanage

 

Everybody loves gathering in a circle to play toss the ball! We’re so glad to be able to be part of their lives, even if it was only on one occasion

 

This was the ‘passing the ice bag’ game. It was a hot day, holding a cold icy bag was refreshing. The residents enjoyed it very much

 

Anna Tan guiding this young girl on what to do with the ice bag

 

Julien and his new found friend. He was very happy to be part of YAK and to participate in activities that brightened up this boy’s day. Giving brings happiness to both giver and receiver, beautiful

 

Music cheers people up, it doesn’t matter if you’re older or if you’re sitting alone on a chair, it still makes you happy!

 

Some children are in the orphanage not because they were handicapped but due to difficult family circumstances. These two girls has no disabilities but lives in the center. We’re glad that we got the chance to brighten up their day too!

 

Lending a helping hand

 

William turned back the clock and relived his childhood with the other children

Happiness can be very simple

Some of our thoughts:

Edward Ooi

Dear Rinpoche,

Hope Rinpoche is well. Thank You Rinpoche for giving me this opportunity to visit the orphanage. This is an eye opening opportunity to make me realized how lucky I am to be able to move and think properly without any problems, have a family that loves me a lot.

It made me feel really sad when I first saw the kids and adults that are disable. It also make me very frustrated to know that some people would just abandoned their child because they are physically disabled and mentally disabled. Some people would even abandoned their child even though they are not physically nor mentally disabled. If they want to have kids, they have to take care of the child no matter what, because it is their responsibility. They are the ones that brought the child to this world. I wish that anything that has to do with hurting an animal or a person will stop now. Thank You Rinpoche once again.

Love,
Edward

 

Pavara Lam

Dear Rinpoche,

Hope Rinpoche is well.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to visit the orphanage.

I feel a bit sad that these kids can’t do anything and it makes me think how fortunate i am not to be born with disabilities. It also tells me that since i am not disabled i must make full use of my life doing good things so that i will not be born with disabilities in my next life. Humans can sometimes be bad and sometimes good, if your parents are bad they might abandon you at birth or do worse things to you. If they think they are not capable of taking care of kids they should not have kids as they can’t even balance their daily life without kids to take care of. These kind of cases are more serious when the child has some disabilities, as they have a higher chance of getting abandoned.

It is sad to see that the people there can’t live their life to the fullest due to their mental/physical condition. However it does not give them a reason to be sad or have any emotional feelings. Yet even when we are not disabled we still request so much things and if we can’t get it we become angry and so and so.

It really is a mind opener as it tells me that we are really fortunate not to be born with disabilities or get abandoned at birth. Even though given the precious human life they can’t do any good deeds whatsoever. They go through each day not able to do anything, they can’t even do good deeds to ensure they don’t end up in the three lower realms or get a bad rebirth. This tells me we must do good deeds and continue to help the orphans so that we will not end up like that in our next life.

This also says that we have to treasure what we have, we are really fortunate to have this and that but that does not mean we must ask for more.

It was good to see that they would do things with us as if they were our good friends. They did not look like they were different, they are just like us. Even without the pleasures that life has to offer, they acted like they had everything in the whole world and that they had no disabilities or hard times in life. They played just like how we played not a single bit different from us.

The last thing i have to say is that we must treasure and look at everything as though it was diamonds, think how fortunate you are to have no mental or physical problems, so be happy. Remember how lucky you are that your parents did not abandon you or were drug addicts. Others aren’t so lucky as I am. And it is good to know that that even when the orphanage can’t make ends meet they do not give up and send the childrens away. Which tells me that nothing is impossible and that even when you have disabilities you can help others( the founder of the orphanage had polio).

I hope that people will stop abandoning kids and forcing them to fend anything on their own. I hope Rinpoche has a great afternoon.

Love,
Pavara.

 

Jutika Lam

Dear Rinpoche,

Hope Rinpoche is well.

Thank you Rinpoche for giving me the chance to visit and help out a orphanage. 

It was a real eye opener for me to see children and adults alike having to suffer so much.

It is a real pity that despite gaining the precious human rebirth they still can’t do much because of their physical / mental disabilities and it is really sad to see them having to go through each day helplessly with nothing to really look forward to.

However,  it was great to see that they enjoyed what we planned today for them and it was wonderful to see them dancing and playing and generally being in high spirits despite how bad their life actually is.

It is good to know that the people who manage this orphanage are very kind to care for the orphans.

It isn’t easy to take care of so many kids especially when most of them need special care and then still having to raise money to buy  groceries and to pay utility bills.

It was great to see in the end, all the happy faces of the children.

Thank you Rinpoche.

Love
Jutika

 

Julien Roth

Dear Rinpoche,

I would like to thank Rinpoche for giving me the opportunity to visit the orphanage today. It was a wonderful experience for me and I had an amazing time meeting new people ☺️. I would definitely go again and again. They could use all the help they can get.

During my time there I learnt a few valuable lessons.

I learnt that we do not need luxuries and other attachments to be happy. The people who were living at the orphanage have so little, and yet they are so happy. They always have smiles on their faces despite the fact that they have disabilities. This is an important lesson for all of us, we must learn that it’s not the items we have that make us happy, it’s the moments that we spend with other people that brings true happiness inside and out.

I have also learnt that by helping others less fortunate, we also help ourselves. When I served food, danced and played games with the people in the orphanage, I gave them a reason to be happy, and in return I was happy. I felt good about being compassionate and helping others. Everyone should have this feeling. More people will be kind to one another, and the world will become a better place.

The last, and probably most important lesson, is that I must cherish the things I have in my life, especially my parents. Many of the kids and adults in that orphanage were abandoned by their parents or their parents were not able to raise a child. I remember from today, one orphan was taken into the orphanage because her parents were drug addicts and did not take care of their daughter. Basically what I am trying to say is that I am lucky to have such kind and loving parents who love me and have care for me. Many people are not as lucky as me. We must never forget the love from our parents, no matter where we end up in life.

Again, thank you Rinpoche so much for this life changing experience.

Love,
Julien.

Dear Rinpoche,

When I went to the orphanage, I realized and saw three main things .

I saw that these kids and, adults too, are happy and they play with each other even though they have some problems and a less fortunate life. It showed me that people with all the good things in life stress about their things and  need more and the people with less can actually enjoy more. It showed me how attachments can affect our lives. They were friendly to me especially one boy, we played games and had fun.

One other thing i saw was how they were and how they acted because they were all different. I saw how each of them were and I realized that they are just like us, they are different from me, not in a sense of who is more fortunate or not, in a sense that all people are different from each other because they enjoyed playing games like usg and enjoyed company like us, so they are just people like us but they are different but everybody is different. So I saw that they were just like us.

I felt sad for some of them that had major disabilities. It made me thank and appreciate how fortunate I was and I felt bad for them. I felt sympathy for them because they missed their lives due to a terrible disability. So I realized that I must treasure what I have and don’t just demand for more, but instead of demanding, I must help the people that don’t have what I have in whatever way I can. Going to the orphanage was a real eye opener for me.

Those were the main things I saw. Please rest well Rinpoche.

Love,
Lucas

Dear Rinpoche, 

Hope you are well.

A visit to the taman mega disabled home was an eye-opener today. There were different types of mentally disabled individuals from varies ages and also orphans. They were all very welcoming and friendly but today, I’ve learnt to put down my ego, put myself down to their level and see things at their perspective.

It also requires lots of patience and compassion as they are not like us who are able to do everything (some of them can’t walk, talk properly, etc). However, it also taught me to be grateful for what I have – my parents who have the ability to raise me by themselves and give me food, shelter and education, a healthy body which allows me to learn the dharma. There is so much to be grateful for and be content with what I have now.

Thank you Rinpoche for giving us the chance to visit such a place, it has taught me a lot and I hope to visit this place again in the near future. Once again, thank you Rinpoche for the opportunity.

Love,
Michelle

 

Beatrix Ooi

Dear Rinpoche,

Hope Rinpoche is well.

Being at the orphanage today has been a whole new experience for me, even though I have visited a few homes in the past. It is sad to see these people suffering, I don’t think I will ever understand the pain they are going through every day.

We met a little boy, around 5 – 6 years old, his name is Harris. His is the youngest member of the orphanage, he’s completely normal except for the fact that his parents abandoned him when he was still an infant. I couldn’t help but keep thinking why would someone abandon such a cute little boy like him…

One of the things I’ve learnt from this trip is that we must stop complaining and learn how to be more appreciative. These people didn’t even complain about their lives, and I thought to myself that, who are we to complain? We all have  our parents living with us and everything has been provided for us since young.

I would like to thank Sock Wan for taking her time to plan these activities for Y.A.K, she is indeed a very helpful and kind lady.

Thank You Rinpoche for such an amazing opportunity and experience.

Please rest well Rinpoche.

Love,
Beatrix

    YAK kids are very fortunate to be given exposure to the less fortunate people at their age. In the age of ipads and smartphones, most young adults will be preoccupied, will entertainment or more instant gratification. So it is essential that we learn gratitude from young, without gratitude, we will only keep asking whats next or whats the next thing I can get, without ever coming close to the fact that for what we have now, people had to work hard to provide it to us.

  2. Carmen Koo on Apr 19, 2015 at 3:31 am

    This article left me feeling happy after reading it, because it shows the beautiful souls that these young adults possess, and on top of that, highlights what Kechara means to many. It is a symbol of hope, peace, joy, love, care, kindness, generosity, and compassion.

    I wished I had some place like Kechara growing up, where I would be taught the values that society so often lacks today, and be shown what I can do, where I can go to bring benefit to others and develop my spirituality. These young adults are fortunate to have Rinpoche and learn Dharma, so that as they transition to different phases in their lives, the Dharma and values they have imparted within them doesn’t change and it would help them very very much. When they are thrown into the deep-end of life, hopefully the recollection of their Dharma knowledge will give them some light and hope as what the Dharma always does.

    Thank you Sock Wan for continuously leading and guiding the YAKs, helping them whenever they need assistance, and arranging for such meaningful activities

  3. Pastor Gim Lee on Apr 16, 2015 at 4:20 pm

    It is very heartwarming to see the hard works by the kids and their interaction with children/ residents from the orphanage.

    Our YAK members learnt better when they have to not only participate the event like a ‘guest’ but rather as the ‘organiser’. They are involved directly from the beginning. These experiences are valuable for them to form their characters to grow up as responsible adults in future. The young adults and kids are are future. Their reports showed clearly that these activities let them learn to appreciate and be grateful of their fortunate lives and to not be demanding unnecessarily.

    Way to go YAKs… keep up the good works 🙂

  4. Antoinette Kass on Apr 16, 2015 at 8:08 am

    To organise such a beautiful and meaningful activity is very a good example. All the preparations, the flea market for fundraising, buying and organizing took a long time and with Sock Wan guiding them, they kept going and managed to benefit the people in this center a lot.

    Kechara is truly benefiting people in many ways and I am sure that going out to meet challenged people changes the way these young Kecharians relate to people with special needs. The activities benefit the giver as well as the receiver.

    I rejoice very much for them and look forward to see more from the Young Adults and Kids in Kechara. Great job! Thank you for sharing the nice pictures and the article. Keep going!

  5. Julia Tan on Apr 15, 2015 at 11:20 pm

    Thank you YAKs for sharing with us such a heart warming updates and your thoughts will inspired many to do the same as you. It is wonderful to see people like you taking out your time and efforts to raise the fund, provides and serve. This is more than just a charity, it is the value of life that you learned, it is the experience of you willing to put your hands on to do it yourselves and you telling th world, you can do more than just young people and kids can do.

    We are born by having the 10 perfect fortunate conditions that we should have no excuses of not practicing Dharma. YAKs showed a very good examples of how Dharma benefited them. It is very fortunate to have Dharma from the young age. I would like to congratulate to their parents, Li Kim, Jennifer, Master Loo, Choy Sim, Mr Lam, Pastor Henry, Angel and Sharon.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your care and love always to us and our families.

  6. Li Kheng on Apr 15, 2015 at 10:30 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you for the precious opportunity for the kids to experience the joy of giving and grow from learning to raise fund. I can with certainty that most of the kids would not have had such a heart opening experience if not for YAK.

    It is very important for kids know what it is to be responsible for a project from beginning to end as such experiences develop within them good habits like determination, ownership, generosity, empathy and hard work.

    Such characteristics form strong leaders for the future and this type of “investment” is pivotal for hope for a better future.

    Thank you also Sock Wan for leading these young adults to develop personality and character that will contribute to becoming better individuals and leaders.

  7. pammie yap on Apr 15, 2015 at 5:44 pm

    Great job YAK!!
    I am so happy and proud of you guys! I am really happy that YAK raised the funds, bought the necessities, arranged for food, played games, spent time but most of all it was the initiative and care that they have for everyone else. Such a beautiful cause and time spent well! And they got to learn and feel how others are suffering through their own experience.

    Keep up with the great work you are showing others and may many be inspired to do what you guys are doing! Hugs and kisses!

  8. Pastor Chia on Apr 15, 2015 at 4:30 pm

    Young Adult Kechara was conception by H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche to encourage young generation in Kechara doing charity work to benefit others,less focus on their comfort zone. Is hard to see younger generation these day willing to sacrifice their weekend selling second hand junk and raise fund to help the orphanage.These kids has grown with dharma background. There are follow their parents example doing dharma work to serve others. I am rejoice with their consistent hard work,dedication to helping others. I wish many young generation can help and beneficial more in the society just like them.

  9. Pastor Henry Ooi on Apr 14, 2015 at 10:48 pm

    It is wonderful that our young Kecharians raised fund to buy needed things for the orphanage. But what is equally needed is as written here: interactions.

    Time well spent to benefit others is time that money cannot buy.

    I hope this article catches the eye of many readers on Rinpoche’s blog and it would inspire some people to do something similar to benefit the less fortunate. It would give a role model for other young adults to do something for and to give something to others.

  10. nicholas on Apr 14, 2015 at 10:19 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for creating such a great platform to develop the youngsters. It’s really important to educate the young one now about the compassion and not just about fun and doing all the selfish things. Able to grow up in dharma is a great blessing and opportunity. Form young they were thought to share, help the needy, think for others and put in effort consistently to achieve their goals. All these are training for them to face the world practically and dharmicly.

    Wasting time just chasing for impermanent happiness and wrongly perceive everything is permanent is dangerous and that is what make people becoming more greedy and bitter. It’s wonderful to see the YAK having such a noble activities. Their action indeed shows a great example to many young one on how to live their life meaningfully and spiritually.

    Thanks to the big sister Sock Wan whose nurturing them together with other big brothers and sisters. Really enjoy reading their report and experience. Not everything we can buy with money. Care and love is from the sincerity and true compassion. This is the right way to go and can’t wait to see more action from the YAK.

    Kudos and well done!

  11. Phng Keng Hwa on Apr 13, 2015 at 9:49 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It is really nice to see that my cousins Julien and Lucas as well as the other Yak members go to this orphanage and learn something. I rejoice in that the have learnt something valuable and was able to make other people happy! 🙂 And it is also great to see that even in the darkness of humanity, there are still candles of hope coming to help or waiting for us to find them. 🙂
    I’m really happy to see my cousins doing these and changing someones day for the better. It just shows how kind they can be as well as shows how kind other people can be too. 😀
    Thank you for giving them this opportunity, Rinpoche!_/|\_

    Your humble student,
    Keng Hwa.

    • DR on Apr 15, 2015 at 10:57 am

      Dear Keng Hwa,

      Nice to read your comments here and that you rejoice in your cousins’ good work. Do plan to join one of the flea markets and also go along when YAKs makes another visit to the home. It will be an eye opener and a new and enriching experience for you too.

      Some have the misconception that doing charity benefits only the care recipients but in actuality , it benefits the care giver too. When we give, regardless of whether it is time or finances, or whether it is big or small, it brings out our compassionate nature which sometimes remains dormant due to our priviledged environment. Slowly our self cherishing mind will become less and less. Not just that, but these young Kecharians are a great group of youngsters and fun loving too so I am sure you will enjoy their company!

      • Phng Keng Hwa on May 4, 2015 at 2:08 pm

        Dear DR,

        Sorry for the late reply. ^^; Somehow, I don’t get notified. Have to get that fixed. ^^;

        And yes, after this visit, the YAK members made another one to the same orphanage and this time me and my sister went along. You are right in saying that it was an eye opener, and I felt fortunate and grateful to what I have in this lifetime. I will keep working on improving myself. Thank you. 🙂

  12. sarahyap on Apr 10, 2015 at 1:33 am

    Such a wonderfully written report by Beatrix and Sock Wan. These youngsters are truly lucky to have met the Dharma at such an early age, I wish I was as fortunate as them! Personally, I know some of these youngsters well, and I must say it is a world of difference when one is brought up with Dharma and one without. Their whole mode of operation is just different compared to children without Dharma.

    It is not that children that grew up without Dharma are bad… it’s not that. But when one is brought up with Dharma, it is very obvious that their thinking, and priority in life is very much focused out to help others, instead of seeking self enjoyment activities all the time.

    I like it how these children have such wonderful guidance as they enter adulthood… the transition between teenage and adult is difficult, and many times kids at this age can be led astray, and once that happens, it is very difficult to turn back. I hope that more kids their age would take their example and carry out wonderful community work and activities that are beneficial. After all… life would be very meaningless and lonely if it’s spent thinking only about ourselves.

    Carlos Castaneda was an American New Age author and a scholar of anthropology — the study of human behaviour and societies. He wrote a series of popular books that described his training and magical experiences in Toltec Shamanism under the guidance of Don Juan Matus, a native Yaqui shaman who lived in Mexico.

    Castaneda’s writings brought him fame as well as controversy. His proponents and critics would debate as to whether his writings were the results of authentic experiences or an overactive imagination. Yet, despite the controversy, his expressive and evocative writing as well as the mysticism that surrounded his persona inspired widespread appreciation for Native American culture and earned him the title of “Godfather of the New Age Movement.”

    The Jewish people have been persecuted throughout recorded history, from their beginnings in the Middle East, through Europe during the Middle Ages, the Holocaust of the World Wars and into the modern era due to their race and religion. This persecution of a community has been sustained due to religious discrimination. We wanted to provide all of you with just a quick overview of what the Jewish people have been through. We hope you can learn from this, and understand the atrocities that religious persecution can lead to.

Of course learning anything in a super awesome environment is always amazing.

Well, besides exploring the forest retreat the programmes has also strongly connect for all participants to experience their power for overcoming obstacles and bringing peace and fulfillments through the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.

He is currently engaged in writing about the cultural influences between India and China during the last two millennia.

    From time to time we will hear stories about children saying they see things or they are talking or playing with someone that obviously is not visible. We will always ask them to stop talking about it and brush them off. It is said that because children are purer, they are able to see things that we cannot see. Some of them are born with the third eye so they have the ability to see the unseen. We should teach them how to recite mantras and avoid establishing a close connection with them because we do not know if these beings are harmful. Or we can bring the child to a Buddhist master to get some blessings to protect them from harmful entities.

    Have you heard of the goddess Miyolangsangma before? She is also known as the Goddess of Inexhaustible Giving. Both Sherpas and Tibetans also believe that Mount Everest is the abode of the goddess Jomo Miyolangsangma. Miyolangsangma is one of the Five Long-life Sisters. Her abode is said to be at the summit of Mount Everest, known in Tibetan as Jomolungma (Goddess Mother of Mountains), and she is the resident goddess of Mount Everest and the Khumbu area in general. She is depicted riding on a tiger. Read more about what her function is and her importance in the Sherpas belief.

    Thank you so much for this article. It is true that each Dalai Lama is a unique individual, they have been philosophers, builders and even poets, and as each is revered as a Bodhisattva who possess great mystical powers and can incarnate life after life.

    The Dalai Lama is one of the world’s revered religious leaders, but that didn’t prevent four holders of the office from mysteriously dying. An autopsy proved inconclusive, but, for Yan, the identity of the murderers was obvious where the the twelfth Dalai Lama and his three predecessors were all “victims of the power struggles between the big clerical and lay serf-owners in Tibet.” .

    Thank you so much for this article. By reading this article, i get to know that the term ‘Jewish’ is applied to an ethno-religious group of people that practise Judaism. This means that it encompasses both an ethnicity and a religion at the same time.

    The majority of the Jewish people around the world descend from two distinct groups coming from Europe. In fact due to the religious pluralism prevalent in India, the Jewish population have lived in relative peace and harmony, allowing the adherence to their faith without much opposition. Thank you.

    Statistically, video games are now the most popular and profitable form of entertainment. For me , there’s always side effect on video games. I have seen many kids that have addicted to it and neglected their studies. One of the most detrimental effects of playing violent video games is increased aggression in children. A video game addiction can be harmful if the kids is unable to participate in any interests or extracurricular activities in schools. But by close supervision by parents I personally thinks playing video games is alright. Or else there will be many problems such as health, poor performance in their studies, increased in metal aggression and might suffered in relationships.
    The effects of playing video games are both positive and negative. When playing violent video games too much, it can leads to and increased aggressive behaviour as over time. Even some scientists has claim violent video games, have an adverse effect on young people.
    Over all conclusion, I would said that violent video games is harmful to society especially the younger ones. I have read in papers that it had cause death to those addicted ones.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Wei Tan for this sharing.

    Every culture has its own world-view. In Tibet , it is renowned for its inclusion and development of psychic abilities among those very highly attained Lamas. In kids is rarely, most probably , they inherited the psychic power from their parents . It could be either good and bad, sometimes it cause harm to themselves too when there is extremely negative energy. It’s a torture and scary for anyone to experience and feel the existing of unseen beings or spirits . Interesting watch of the 3 young girls with psychic abilities.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this video sharing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team to share this good news with us. I rejoice for the retreatants who completed their Dorje Shugden retreat. Dorje Shugden retreat is a very beneficial activity for us to do to take a breather away from our city life where we are stressed out with many issues every single day.

    I have personally done retreats in Kechara Forest Retreat, and the experience is fantastic. Kechara Forest Retreat is a spiritually charged place where so many blessings were done on the land. Hence, any spiritual activities carried out there will be more effective. No to mention the environment here is stunning and so close to nature, which is very beneficial if we are looking to heal our mind and body.

    Thanks to Rinpoche, we now have an ideal place to do our retreats, which is Manjushri Guest House. Away from other activities in KFR, the much-needed silence and tranquillity in retreats can be found here. Rinpoche is always thinking of ways to improve our spiritual experience in KFR and hence KFR turned out to be as it is, a heaven on earth.

    Thank you so much for this article. It is good to know that another group of five Kecharians have completed their three-day, two-night Dorje Shugden Retreat at Kechara Forest Retreat. Dorje Shugden is an enlightened protector who is also the emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri, where he is also one of the six Dharma protectors.

    Through Dorje Shugden Retreat, we are able to achieve the benefits of his practice which are generating compassion, kindness, wisdom, insight, clarity, good memory and the removal of obstacles. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for the timely reminder,I would like to start living life the way that i should in the first place,through our guru guidance.
    Having wealth is not bad but gaining happiness through material possession is false happiness. The moment of death we suffer the most when we see our possession just right in front of our eyes but yet those material cannot do anything to save our life.
    Thanks once again for sharing with us…..

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. Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

  • 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

Earlier this month, five members from our Puja House engaged in a Dorje Shugden retreat, spending three days in Kechara Forest Retreat strongly focused on Dorje Shugden whilst reciting 185,000 of his mantra. It was a fantastic opportunity for them to create a closer connection with this enlightened Dharma Protector, as H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche shares. If you would like more information about how you too can engage in retreats at Kechara Forest Retreat, please direct your enquiries to our friendly Front Desk team (care@kechara.com or +603 7803 3908).
