(Jan 18, 2014)

Dear students and friends from all around the world,

About a month ago, I gave an assignment to a few of my students to come up with 1-minute videos about Kechara’s services and very wonderful products.

3 teams were selected to create promotional videos for our Kechara restaurant (Kechara Oasis), our Dharma stores (Kechara Paradise), and our publishing house for Kechara books (Kechara Media & Publications).

It was the first time any of them produced professional promotional videos… and I am very proud of them for doing their very best in directing, filming, script writing and editing these wonderful videos. The number of videos each team produced was up to them… and altogether there were 33 videos!

I thought that it would be great to create a competition for the best video, so I would like to ask all of you blog readers to VOTE!

Please do watch all the videos that our talented teams have put a lot of hard-work in creating. Give them your support and encouragement by voting! There are instructions below on how you can vote. You can vote within the next 2 weeks, after which we will tabulate the score and there will be one overall winning team. The video with the most number of votes will be awarded a grand prize for their effort… the effort of promoting Dharma creatively!

I thank all those in advance who will be voting for their favourite video, and also to the teams that put so much effort in making these videos. Well done everyone!

Tsem Rinpoche

    • jeanai on Feb 20, 2014 at 4:41 am

      Hi William,

      It was off the list because it was submitted after the submission deadline 🙂

    Dear students and friends,

    After a month of voting, the results of the winning video is finally out! I would like to congratulate the teams that have given their full effort in making and promoting these videos; and also thank all those that participated in voting and commenting on their favourite video.

    Do have a look at which video received the most votes!

    Tsem Rinpoche

    _________________________________________________

    ANNOUNCEMENT for the WINNER of KECHARA VIDEO COMPETITION:

    Firstly, CONGRATULATIONS to all the teams that put so much effort in creating promotional videos that promote our lovely Dharma items. Each one was unique and served its purpose. Every team deserves a pat on their backs for the job well done. However, there can only be one winning team that will be rewarded “A PILGRIMAGE to LANTAU ISLAND” through YOUR VOTES. So without further ado, we’re happy to announce…

    KECHARA VIDEO COMPETITION WINNER goes to… KO01 – The Superb Kechara Vegetarian Dining Experience! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    The team that created this video consisted of Pastor Yek Yee, Pastor Adeline and Pastor Jae Jay. Well done team! Your video has convinced many that vegetarian dining is the way to go. You have made a strong statement that the New Age life-style to adopt is a wholesome lifestyle that appreciates and promotes health, longevity, and non-killing of animals as well! This is very important; the more people start adopting vegetarianism, the more lives are saved. That is the beauty of it all.

    The 2nd Winning Team that came very close to winning was the team that created 11 videos for Kechara Media and Publications. They are David Lai (Script writer), Wendy Loh (Script writer), Pastor Martin Chow (Script writer), Khong Jean Mei (Producer) and Joy Kam (Director). Although your team did not win the votes here, yet we can see that those who voted for your videos gave their positive sincere feedback in the comments section. With that, you should be proud of yourselves in your achievement of creating 11 videos with 11 different scripts, which was very challenging in such a short given production timeline. Bravo to you all!

    3rd Winning Team is a ONE MAN TEAM! James Long took on this project and enrolled a few Kechara members to join his team. They were Miss Han (Producer), Lai (Cameraman and Editor), Niral Patel (Script writing), and Chris (Cameraman) and they took on the challenge and created 20 Kechara Paradise Dharma outlets’ promo videos (10 in English and 10 in Chinese). Bravo to him and his team too, for creating such professionally shot videos to promote our outlets’ wonderful spiritual items.

    We would also like to thank all those who participated and contributed in the making of these wonderful videos. From the hired cameraman, video editors, voice over talents, actors and actresses (mostly Kecharians), production crew, make-up artists and all those who helped behind the scenes, you know who you are, without you, none of this could have happened.

    Last but not least, THANK YOU TO ALL VOTERS who put in the time an effort to watch all the videos! Thank you for showing your care, support and encouragement to the teams by voting and commenting. These videos that have been produced do not end here as they will go on to showcase and market our beautiful SPIRITUAL items which also connect people to a better way of living or enhance their spiritual journey. So do please continue to share these wonderful creative promo videos with everyone everywhere!

      Dear Kecharians, students and friends from around the world,

      I congratulate the winners and everyone who participated in the creation of the videos and the voters. It was very exciting and still is. The videos are so WELL DONE!

      I am so pleased with the videos. They were all so good, it was hard for people to choose. The videos clearly show the wonderful facilities we have in Kechara created by the hardworking and dedicated members. I am proud of the loyal and hardworking Kecharians.

      I thank everyone for their hardwork and you have my deepest appreciations.

      Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    • Carmen K on Feb 22, 2014 at 4:35 pm

      Congratulations to everyone who was involved in making the videos. With everything you have, you guys managed to produce such amazing, high quality and creative videos.. its extremely professional, and to know that most of you have had no experience in script, concept, making and producing videos. Its highly commendable.

      You guys are all winners because you guys epitomize what Kechara is about – inner and outer development. Taking on things from unfamiliar territories and doing the best you can with them. So kudos to all of you for a job well done.

  7. Mel on Feb 18, 2014 at 8:18 pm

    My vote goes to KO01 as the video illustrated good food shall be share under harmonic & good ambient. Clip precisely w introduction and walkthrought clearly tempted me for a visit. Welldone.

  8. Pastor Han Nee on Feb 18, 2014 at 11:27 am

    Now that the Kechara Promotional Video Voting Competition has drawn to a close, and as the results will be announced soon, I take this opportunity to thank everyone for making this whole competition a success.

    First and foremost, thank you Rinpoche, for without your blessings and your instilling of a strong motivation in us all to support this powerful cause to spread and promote Dharma, for the benefit of all, this whole endeavour would have been impossible.

    My greatest applause and ‘thank you’ go to every one and every team involved in producing and creating such captivating videos. By the sheer effort of your hard work and professional display of talent and team work, you carry a powerful message : that with Kecharians and friends, nothing is impossible when it comes to promoting Rinpoche and the Dharma creatively and with powerful impact.

    There was a huge unseen network of supporters, who worked strenuously first to help get the videos out and afterwards to promote them via intensive and indefatigable canvassing for votes.Thank you to all you lovely people.There are also Voters who, like Steve Tobias, made their act of voting an act of showing deep appreciation to all those who had created the videos.

    Thank you.

    I like vote KO02 because it can encourage more people love to be vegetarian.

  43. Albert on Feb 15, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    All these videos are very well done, it shows how much effort has put in for producing these videos. All these videos are produced within a month and the crew behind the scene has their own busy schedule on top of making these videos. What’s not possible has always been possible in Kechara. I was surprised with the high quality video, great script that explains our Kechara’s product and professional video shooting. Normally a companies have to pay tens of thousands or even up to hundreds of thousands of money for the professionals to produce such promotional videos. But here, we did it themselves and I would say, most of the working crew are doing this first time. Isn’t it amazing?

    Personally I would vote for Kechara Oasis Video. Although this video is longer than other videos, but the content of this video is very organized and script very well written. It makes me wanted to know what else the video is showing. I like also how this video is showing, with different setting for the different occasions, with the people good acting skill, it shows how much enjoyment we’ll be having in Kechara Oasis. This video brings out a message to me :

    Vegetarian, a healthier choice and a happier life 🙂

    My Vote – KO01

    Thank you

  44. Kelvin on Feb 15, 2014 at 9:09 pm

  54. 山龙隐秀 on Feb 15, 2014 at 6:05 pm

    虽知夺冠无望,山某决议选择”KMP06 – If Not Now, When? Love Edition”为最出色之短片。

    不为别的,因其剧本、摄影、配乐,三味齐融催化之下已能动吾心脾,感触良多。
    其意境让吾心醒,而不再白鬓白旬之后芳恨为时已少,空悲切一场。更应活在当下,适时而行。

    无畏无惧只因珍惜。如不予投,更待何时?

    I vote for KO-02, nice and wonderful job!

  59. Anni Soo on Feb 15, 2014 at 4:20 pm

    I WOULD LIKE TO VOTE FOR KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo.

    Reason : David is funny and i like inside the video he just be the real him.

    Actually it is very difficult to make decision, all video above been done very well. Good job everyone !!

    KP video – Beautiful colour contrast , make the products even more attractive.

    KMP video – i like most video of ‘ Peace ‘ , message been delivered clearly match with title in so creative way.

    KO video – professional commercial video but i personally think video a bit long.

    P.S. Excellent well done the team who did ‘ The promise Poem ‘ , can see put in a lot of effort to produce this video.

    Thank you all , i enjoy very much watching all above !!

  60. Cynthia Lee on Feb 15, 2014 at 3:55 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    All the videos are very well made according to its purpose which makes it a tough choice. Products need to be communicated differently as different products need more explanation where else some products need less explanation.

    A. Best script
    KMP08 David Lai Book Combo – It’s light, tells a story and well written in a non hard sell manner.

    B. Best cinematography
    I like all Kechara Paradise product videos because it’s is how it was shot makes the products look beautiful and sleek while being informative. How the video was laid out graphically including the animation of blog logo looks very professional. Kechara Oasis video is also well shot and edited.

    C. Best in MAKING YOU WANT TO GET THE PRODUCT IN THE VIDEO
    KO01 This video makes me want to go Kechara Oasis now and eat!

    D. BEST OVERALL VIDEO
    I vote for KMP08 David Lai Book Combo because this video creatively brings out the personality of the writer – simple, honest and humorous. In my opinion, what makes a book sell is the author. The music and simple cinematography blends well bringing out the message clearly. It’s definitely not an easy task to conceptualise an ad to sell books. Hence, I choose this video as the winner.

  61. Lyn Phng on Feb 15, 2014 at 3:53 pm

    I would like to vote for KMP05 Eat Healthy, Daily. It is nice and different to see someone other than a Kechara member promoting Kechara itself. No doubt all the videos showcased many in-house talents and actors who all did a great job, and I really had to deliberate a long time before I chose KMP05, with Mediacorp actor Steve Yap.

  62. Bronson Loh on Feb 15, 2014 at 3:46 pm

    i vote k001 is because i like vegetarian and the restaurant is also very beautiful.

  63. Eric Choong on Feb 15, 2014 at 3:22 pm

    我觉得这33部影片都各有所长,使我难分难舍。看了几个影片之后,我还是对KMP-04 Peace有很深的印象,是因为它只是以黑白的颜色就带出整个Peace的故事,我欣赏它的灯光,很有艺术气息在里头,也很有时尚感。

    简简单单的一分钟就有了一个启示给我们。对Peace这本书更加了解,其实人生就是黑白,看自己如何把自己的人生增添色彩。

  64. Mark on Feb 15, 2014 at 3:08 pm

    My vote goes to KO01 kechara oasis.

    1)Because it encourages non killing.
    2)Beautiful dinning place with nice ambience.

  85. Michelle Tan on Feb 15, 2014 at 10:28 am

    I vote for KMP07.
    I like it because the video is very catchy, colourful, modern, makes Rinpoche looks like a handsome celebrity and yet mysterious spiritual leader. Double thumbs up!
    Michelle

  86. Paul Yap on Feb 15, 2014 at 9:30 am

    I vote for KMP08 – David’s Combo video because he had written a lot of books and gives a very down-to-earth and funny explanation of how he came to start writing. He is very devoted to rinpoche and is very smart in the Dharma. I hope he will write more and share more of the Dharma.

  87. Brando Lee on Feb 15, 2014 at 1:12 am

    I vote for KMP07 The Promise. Although it may seem effortless in creating this video without any live filming, but at first watch in one go of all videos it really stands out. From the choices of pictures to the music, the quick flashes of graphics to the voice over be it script or the energy of projection, they all seem to come together and became so impactful and lively. And even after watching it a few more times, it still gives the same feeling to me with the urge of getting the book…..and it looks professional. Well done!
    And kudos to all other videos. You guys are excellent!

  88. Irene Lim on Feb 15, 2014 at 12:38 am

    I vote KO01 for it is made with professionalism. It can be used on any TV/movie commercials. Good effort from the Team!

  97. Prixie @MBF on Feb 14, 2014 at 4:05 pm

    Hello everyone,

    I have actually cast my vote. But everyday I visit here and watched the videos, I can’t help but feel a little wasted if I don’t cast my votes for other videos I like. So here I am again casting my vote.

    1.) KO01 (English)because I feel that the video is very detailed and people who watch it will certainly want to try the appetizing vegetarian food that’s being served. I wish there is Kechara Oasis in Singapore too.

    2.) KMP07 – The Promise
    3.) KMP04 – Peace

    Good Luck everyone!!!

  98. Allen Tan on Feb 14, 2014 at 3:47 pm

    Thanks!

  99. K T GOH on Feb 14, 2014 at 3:16 pm

    我选择KO01,因为它令我想起女儿的婚宴和妈妈的壽宴可以在那里进行 🙂 它有华人和印度人的文化色彩和风味。非常漂亮。

  105. C J Jong on Feb 13, 2014 at 12:25 pm

    MY vote goes to KMP08 because i can relate that everybody should push themselves out of their comfort zone and try harder at new things and he was funny too.

  117. Wong Pui San on Feb 11, 2014 at 11:08 pm

    I vote for KMP10 Enlightenment Series because I find the choreography of explaining who Buddha is and the association with our Guru is nicely done, especially with the introduction of the three books our Guru wrote at the end of the video. I feel this will create curiosity for viewers to find out more about the books.

  118. Calvin Aw on Feb 11, 2014 at 10:46 pm

    Jessica

  120. Wan Wai Meng on Feb 11, 2014 at 6:01 pm

    I vote for If Not Now When? Love Edition (Kechara Media & Publications) – It is a cleverly done video, just three sets of people all the brink of making a decision and important one at that, which require them to take that next step. I love videos who can convey message without so many words.

  121. Angela Lee on Feb 11, 2014 at 5:28 pm

    I vote for KMP04 – Peace because it very creative and attractive. Nice and simple video.

    Thank you!

    Regards,
    Vivian

  127. Sheryl KH(JB) on Feb 11, 2014 at 2:28 pm

    I vote for KMP07 – The Promise because for all that we have in Kechara, they all comes from Rinpoche.

    This video provides a good summary of Rinpoche’s journey (since kid till now). It tells the story in a rather modern way too.

    By introducing Tsem Rinpoche to people, we can attract more people into Dharma and Kechara and the rest will follow.

  128. katherine yap on Feb 11, 2014 at 1:45 pm

    I vote for KP04 because of the intro and layout. Closeup is good.

  129. Patsy Lee on Feb 11, 2014 at 1:00 pm

    Also.. I forgot..
    K001 The MOST neutral and Professional looking could reach the widest # of people if we are looking to get the most people in the door. this is the one (I take back my other vote) This is too hard!

  135. Anjalee Wijesighe on Feb 11, 2014 at 12:37 pm

    I vote for KO01

  136. Jessica on Feb 11, 2014 at 12:11 pm

    Ok I LOVE David Lai’s video I think it is excellently done and a great upbeat story. I also love the Setrap video and feel it is very powerful BUT, if we can only pick one video, I think something a more general and neutral is in order attract people to the many sides of Kechara would be more effective as a lead in to a campaign.
    I tried to watch this as someone who knows nothing about Kechara or anyone tied to it and little to nothing about Buddhism or Dharma. I asked myself after each video “Do I want to know more about this place, books, teacher etc etc etc now?”

    My vote:
    KMP06 If Not Now When? Love Edition

    I felt it was the simplest and most to the point and that could touch many people.

    followed by:
    KMP12 the promise. Its so intriguing and I want to know more about this Handsom person that gave up all the glitz and glamor for robes. Powerful. Beautiful

    KMP04 Peace. Well shot. Well spoken. Very direct. I want that book! (I have it It’s great)

    and as I said before the David Lai can really get people in the door. That video makes me want to check out his writing.
    The setrap is great BUT I know if my mom saw it.. she might be scared Not everyone understands protectors.

    • David Lai on Feb 12, 2014 at 4:23 am

      Hello Jessica,
      Thank you for voting here on Rinpoche’s blog contest. Glad you like my little video as it was all about me. Not something I really wanted to share initially but i guess people like that kind of honesty. It makes me believable and real I guess. But what I wanted to share was authentic and detailed everything in my little books along with my journey with Rinpoche and all the little life’s lessons in Dharma/spirituality. Thank you!

  137. lim tin nee on Feb 11, 2014 at 12:04 pm

    I vote 4 Koo1.I’m awed by the cinematography -the presentation,script n sound effect so professionally done to promote our Kechara vegetarian restaurant.The ambience,decor,cleanliness nfood that caters 4 all occasions ranging from weddings,birthdays,cooperate functions n family gatherings so professionally presented will draw guests to our Koo1.Kechara is also blessed with an innovative cook who is ever ready to delight customers’ palate with his creative cuisines.
    More importantly,besides promoting healthy vegetarian food,our restaurant will fulfill our Guru’s greatest wish to stop cruelty to animals.
    Bravo to all the departments of Kechara 4 their great presentation within such a short period. Everybody is stunned by Kechara’s rich repertoire of talents ranging from presentation,script n acting .Everyone,including Niral,Jennifer n Loo,has done a great job to contribute to promote Kechara.

  138. Edward Sim on Feb 11, 2014 at 11:46 am

    I vote for KO01. After watching the video, my stomach started to growl. The food looks yummy, cosy environment with beautiful decor and lighting. Another reason why I vote for this video is I like the person who produced this video,Pastor Adeline. Dear Pastor, you looks yummy too!!!

  141. Soh Boon Swee Andy on Feb 11, 2014 at 11:30 am

    I would like to vote for video K001 as the overall best video. The foods look very tasty. The video looks and sound very professional. I’m a vegetarian, how I wish you can open a few Kechara vegetarian restaurants in Singapore. Andy Soh

  142. Jeffery Chew on Feb 11, 2014 at 11:25 am

    I vote for KMP08- David Lai’s Book Combo. it gives us the right motivation and inspiration to pursue what we aspire to do, no matter what!

  145. Jayce Goh on Feb 11, 2014 at 9:38 am

    I love few video which really get me touched and all of them presenting it very well and professional, Bravo !! I love ” the promise ” and found it very impressed within kechara.

    I vote for KMP04 – Peace

    As we are targeting all the people which some of them might not in dharma. This video is simple and just nice for 1 minute presentation to touch people’s heart as all of us in samsara are facing the similar miserable of life.

  146. Steve Tobias on Feb 11, 2014 at 5:03 am

    I vote for KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo

    There is something about this video that is just fluid, natural, and awesome. It’s like a skit, and reminds me personally of Charlie Brown (probably the music selection), or something similar which is endearing. I don’t know David personally but it seems to give me a strong sense of what he is about. It tells a story about David and Rinpoche, gives a to-the-point message about not giving up, and it’s all done playfully — even though we get a sense that the underlying topic is more serious. It makes me want to watch more. The videography itself is excellent but you don’t notice it, which is how it is supposed to be, since the video draws you in. You can see David pretending to type with 1 hand in a few shots, it does detract a little, but it also makes it more endearing. There are a list of endearing things: his well-done narration, reaction shots, shots where he grabs his books from the top of the frame (someone handing it to him), etc. Whoever shot this video with David, they seem to make a good team. IMO if they replaced the fake typing shots towards the end it would be flawless.

    All the videos are impressive and if it’s okay I’d like to give shout-outs to these videos as well.

    KO01 (English)
    This is clearly the most professionally shot, with a voice actor, and higher budget. It’s technically the best one, and it’s a great ad for Kechara Oasis.

    KMP06 – If Not Now, When? Love Edition
    I like this video because it’s about a book, but within 1 minute it also tells (or hints) at the story of these particular characters in the video. It’s something we can relate to and it’s touching in a way. The time lapse works well and when “If Not Now, When?” pops up it emphasizes the point of the scene or thesis of the book and seems to give a good understanding of what the book is about. At the same time the video, and what it is offering, is attractive on its own, stands on its own. It’s just cool, and shows that Rinpoche’s book is practical to our everyday lives.

    KMP07 – The Promise
    I think this video has technically and creatively the best editing. It’s engaging, and a bit different from other Kechara videos I’ve seen. At the same time it tells a story of Rinpoche in a way that is interesting and pulls in the viewer, especially for those who aren’t too familiar with Rinpoche. It uses video effectively to summarize The Promise, which is the purpose, while the video stands on its own as well. This is done just using images with no actual footage. It’s a great narrative, like a movie trailer. I really admire this video, it’s just that in the contest it can’t stand against some of these other videos working with unique footage and more production elements.

    KMP04 – Peace
    This video is artistic and interpretive of the actual book. So it’s not directly promoting or summarizing the book itself, but using video more artistically to demonstrate or interpret the main point. The photography and idea are both great. It’s very effective because it’s slightly different, and shows that Kechara is about different things (art) with different members, and that they can do a great job at being creative, among other things. I think it can reach some people from different backgrounds who otherwise may not be interested in some of the books.

    All the KP videos:
    Very nicely shot and you obviously have a great system down for doing so. The beauty is the dharma items and each video brings that out. It’s straight forward and displays the items well, instead of detracting from them.

    • Pastor Han Nee on Feb 11, 2014 at 9:31 am

      Steve, I love your careful and detailed analysis of why you voted for David Lai’s Book Combo. I also like how you delineated the wonderful qualities of the other videos that you liked.

      Thank you Steve, for putting so much thought into your voting.It shows you appreciate the efforts and talents of the individuals and teams who produced the videos as a creative way of spreading the Dharma.

    • tsemtulku on Feb 11, 2014 at 7:12 pm

      Dear Steve Tobias,

      Out of the hundreds of votes and comments written here, I really like yours. Your thoughts really stand out very well. Not everyone needs to be an expert in video works to share, just the care and appreciation.

      Our Kechara products are beautiful backed up by the creativity, hard work and follow up of many students, friends and supporters. Also these videos do them some justice. I would like the world to know all wonderful spiritual works in Kechara by many embodied in these videos. People can see more here: http://www.vajrasecrets.com or go to http://www.Kechara.com also.

      You really took the time to observe, think and give good opinions. I have never met you nor spoken to you, but you really take this ‘assignment’ seriously. I appreciate this. You do not take anything for granted and really followed up on my request to watch each video, think, find what you like/don’t like and take the time to type it out to share with us. The people involved in the videos had worked hard and long hours and definitely DESERVE our/your attention and comments and I thank you for it. It’s a nice way of showing respect to the works of others. I like that. You have taken more time to give needed feedback than some of my ‘long time’ students. LOL.

      I appreciate all the comments given by people around the world, but your comment really stand out and is superb.

      Thank you for your feedback, thoughts and excellent comments which I will share with all in Kechara.

      Tsem Rinpoche

      • Steve Tobias on Feb 12, 2014 at 7:59 am

        Thank you very much, Rinpoche. I didn’t expect you (or any of the authors of these videos for that matter) to notice my comment at all, so I was suprised and I’m very appreciative for the care. I think these videos will end up doing a great job at selling dharma books, dharma items, getting Kechara Oasis visitors, and so forth. This positive impact rarely ever happens in the film/video world. Thanks again.

        • Mark on Feb 20, 2014 at 9:44 pm

          So very good Steve. You take so much time to do this – like His Eminence say – more than his long time students! His Eminence must be so embarrassed of some of his long time students. It is good you can make His Eminence feel better!

    • Joy on Feb 11, 2014 at 10:41 pm

      Dear Steve,

      Wow! I thank you for honesty and really appreciate the time you took to actually give your sincere comments of the videos presented here. You analysed them each very well especially the video on David and yes the team worked harmoniously well to bring out the best we could in showing the real David that we love 🙂
      Your comments are genuine and you’re not voting because of favouritism but because you really took the time to watch and care… Thank you so much!x

    • David Lai on Feb 12, 2014 at 4:07 am

      Thank you Steve. I appreciate what you like about my video and I really like your analysis of the video and the subject-matter and somehow I didn’t realize how much of me went into it. I am glad it did because I felt I had to have a part of me in the video. I do admit the last few comical shots of me typing away was awfully fake. Hehe! But somehow I thought people would find that funny. And I definitely don’t type like that anyways….

  147. Nicholas Sze on Feb 11, 2014 at 12:06 am

    I vote for KP02-Tara because it, like most of the KP videos, has:
    1) well-written script – to briefy introduce and explain on the iconography of Green Tara and White Tara;
    2) beautiful cinematography – that reflects the serenity of Bodhisattva Tara; and
    3) compelling call-to-action attribute – that attracts new ‘customers’ (or future believers).
    Most importantly it complies to the 1-minute-duration (as part of the T&Cs).

    Hello Everyone,

    It took me forever to finally decide which video to vote.
    The first thoughts on the day I saw the promotional post of this contest was, I want to vote all videos. LOL.. Then to my disappointment I am only allowed to vote one video. But of course I understand that Rinpoche picks ONLY ONE winner.

    So I am voting for KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo. Because maybe he will give me another book if he win in this competition. 😛 Just kidding. I met David Last November at Modern Buddhist Fellowship Singapore and was pleasant meeting him in person. And he remembers me that I am one of his follower on twitter. Then He became Mr. Santa last December and he gave me a copy of “There’s No Way But Up”. Though I have not finish reading it, I feel David’s sincerity and his strong devotion to Dharma, I like his humor too. I voted David’s Video because I want him to write more books and inspire more people.

    Good Luck everyone!

  159. sharon lee on Feb 9, 2014 at 9:52 pm

    I vote for KMP06 – If Not Now, When? Love Edition because i think it is really meaningful and touching. The script is also very good because it portrays the meaning really well.

    I will vote for KP08 because I like how the video was made and it kept me interested.

  164. Chea Ngan Loi on Feb 8, 2014 at 10:53 pm

    I chose Kechara Oasis because it shows a Vegetarian shop which can cater for various functions/festivals/celebrations and is not just your everyday vege shop. And it makes the person feel like wanting to try out some delicacies over at Kechara Oasis

  165. gary foo on Feb 8, 2014 at 10:48 pm

    Thank you for the videos and the hardwork behind it all dear Kecharians. I have narrowed down few which i liked e.g. the The Promise, Kechara Oasis, Davids Lais combo and the Chinese Setrap (though I cant understand a word but the video was interesting enough 🙂 )

    I finally choose The Promise as my favorite as it makes me wonder why did such a man who could choose fame and fortune in Hollywood choose Dharma instead and sacrficed so much. it would would have been easier to go for riches and fame since the earlier beginnings were great hardship.

  166. Wan Hong on Feb 8, 2014 at 1:24 pm

    My vote to KO01

    I think that the video showcases Kechara Oasis well!

  178. Jutika lam on Feb 6, 2014 at 11:05 pm

    Hellllo Everyone!!!!

    I vote for KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo!!!

    Why? It’s because out of all the videos in this competition David’s video on his book was the most creative, funny, and at the same time a great ad to promote the books that he wrote!

    After all who doesn’t like it when a famous writer/actor of a book/movie advertising their own works from their heart?

    Good luck to you David Lai!!!

    May you win this competition!!!

    Best of Luck!

    • David Lai on Feb 12, 2014 at 4:18 am

      Thank you Jutika lil munster. It would be good if I do become famous one day so my books will sell and people will read about Rinpoche and the Dharma through what I write.

  179. Caroline Ann on Feb 6, 2014 at 7:39 pm

    I would like to vote for ‘KMP07 – The Promise’ because it is nice and it shows how rinpoche made a wise decision to become a monk instead of a Hollywood Star.

  181. Jerrysito on Feb 5, 2014 at 11:28 pm

  182. Frederick Law on Feb 5, 2014 at 6:03 pm

    i must say all the video are done very nicely and has different appeal to different peoples wants and needs and also appeal. My vote goes to KO01,for the reason the video editing, objective and visual are wonderfully presented in a very professional manner. and the the visual are stunning.

  184. CS on Feb 5, 2014 at 1:27 pm

    KMP02

    Simple, direct and easy to understand.

  185. Marcus Liew on Feb 5, 2014 at 12:01 am

    I vote for KP01 – Wealth Vase
    The clear and precise explanation

  186. Maggie Chiam on Feb 4, 2014 at 10:02 pm

    I vote for KMP04 “Peace. Peace is something all of us need. When we are at peace mentally and spiritually with our own self, we are able to make sound judgement.This is exactly what the video is trying to spread the message of “peace”.

  187. wansan on Feb 4, 2014 at 4:00 pm

    I’d vote for KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo

    Simply because the way the video presents itself is creatively simple yet catchy and awkwardly funny with the way David promotes his books.

  188. Joan Leong on Feb 4, 2014 at 3:25 pm

    I vote for KMP06 – If Not Now, When? Love Edition
    The message is simple and clear. It touches my heart when I view it.
    Just do it without fear. Else things will left unsaid and the thought unexpressed.

  189. Choo Wei Ken on Feb 4, 2014 at 11:41 am

    I vote for KO-01 because I feel hungry when I watch the video

  190. Choo Wei Yan on Feb 4, 2014 at 11:38 am

    I vote for KO-01 because it’s interesting & hope more people will take up vegetarianism

  191. Andy on Feb 4, 2014 at 11:31 am

    I vote for KO01 (English).

    Informative.

  192. Esther Foong on Feb 3, 2014 at 11:07 pm

    When I watched this video, i felt that it was really easy for any layman to understand its intention. It’s the same message that i feel many of us are lacking and that we should start to convey our gratitude or apologies asap.

    • Esther Foong on Feb 3, 2014 at 11:11 pm

      Oh! forgot to mentioned that I vote for KMP06

  193. wong mee kim on Feb 3, 2014 at 10:19 pm

    I vote for kmp 10(the enlightnment series) . The music in the background is soothing to the mind n Buddha is very special to me. If not for the Enlightened One we will not have the opportunity to gather here to share.

  194. Choo Weng Loong on Feb 3, 2014 at 6:24 pm

    I vote for KO-01 because through vegetarianism we spread the message of compassion for animals and at the same time help reduce the world’s energy & food crisis

  195. RyanLai on Feb 2, 2014 at 11:32 pm

    Vote KO01 (English) or vote KO02 (Chinese) is totally the same video and message only just for who can read ENG or CHI only, i’m read both languagesi simply go for KO01 (English)

    because KO VIDEOS not only for Buddhism only! the message from KO videos is for every human being to take vegetarian for health and care for earth!

  196. JJ Ding on Feb 2, 2014 at 6:30 pm

    KO02 – 我选择KO02,素食值得广泛推广,更何况是如意轩的健康,美味,创意,吃的安心的素食。。。加油 !!

    • Lai on Feb 2, 2014 at 11:31 pm

      Honestly, i strongly feel that the vote for KO01 and KO02 should compile together since it is the same video, it dub in Chinese is just convenient for people who don’t understand English.
      By the way, no matter who is the winner, i just wish Rinpoche’s video can spread as much as possible and to benefit as much as possible.

      • RyanLai on Feb 2, 2014 at 11:49 pm

        Not only the KO videos only, the KMP and KP videos which had both ENG and CHI version should count as one!

        • Pastor Han Nee on Feb 3, 2014 at 3:01 pm

          Dear RyanLai,

          Thank you for voting.The videos are in 2 versions for the convenience and accessibility of voters.

  197. Leonard Chia on Feb 2, 2014 at 10:50 am

    I would like to vote for KO001 Kechara Oasis – Vegetarian Food. Good to promote vegetarian food.

  198. Doreen Teoh on Feb 2, 2014 at 10:32 am

    I vote for KMP04 as it delivers the reality of life and the book “peace” is where the answers is. Love the part when the side of the black face was wiped out and the word CHANG comes to place. Very well thought on delivering the shirt of the book.

  201. Wah Ying on Feb 2, 2014 at 12:42 am

    To produce such a quality videos in such a short time is not an easy task. Kudos to all the team! Videos I like are KMP03, KP11, KMP12, and KMP08.

    KP01 – Wealth Vase, clean, simple and direct.
    KO02 – Kechara Oasis, a complete video on KO, lots of effort has put in, with sincerity.
    KMP12 – Beautiful and creative. I like the clouds motif.
    KMP08 – David’s video, funny.
    KMP03 – 108 Ways to Grab the Apples, very creative. I like the apple so much, Nicholas is natural.

    I vote for KMP03. It’s creative and simple.

    Thank you all the teams for their effort, creativity put in.

  202. Chon Kong on Feb 2, 2014 at 12:11 am

    Hi, I hope I could vote for more than one videos…I vote for KO02 (Chinese) – Kechara Oasis. Reasons I vote for this video are I see the effort put in producing the video, the actors are natural like professional actors. It’s a complete introduction to Kechara Oasis. Thank you.

    HI, I would like to vote for KO01.
    The video was well organised to promote the Oasis outlets.It covers all aspect of what Oasis could offer in sense of ambiance and quality. Giving a new dimension in vegetarian fine dinning never experience before.Well directed and choreograph short video.

  209. Su Ming on Feb 1, 2014 at 3:45 pm

    I would like to vote for KMP12 – The Promise.

    It is simple and tell u everything about the biography of Tsem Rinpoche. Well Done

    • Joy on Feb 2, 2014 at 1:29 am

      Dear Su Ming… KMP12 The Promise Poem cannot be voted. It’s for your viewing pleasure as it is an extra video offered as a gift to Rinpoche 🙂 Please kindly select another video 🙂

  210. Riyaj on Feb 1, 2014 at 2:10 pm

    Namaste , I like to vote for video entitled KP02 – Tara .I would like to ask is Prince Siddhartha ( Lord Buddha ) was Indian Prince as you have mentioned in this video KMP10 – Enlightenment Series ? I am asking this question not as Nepali but as earnest seeker of truth .Thanku

  211. Susan Wong on Feb 1, 2014 at 1:41 pm

    I would like to vote for KO01 because I like the comfort of the restaurant’s environment and the uniqueness of it’s interior design.

  212. Lim Tat Ming on Feb 1, 2014 at 1:05 pm

    I vote for KMP07 The Promise.

    The video image “Save the Planet Save the Animals” and its title “The Promise” easily and immediately attract one’s attention upon sight.

    This short video captures in a flash the life of a monk and his noble works that had touched many lives. It encapsulates his unwavering devotion to his guru. His transformation from an abused child to being a model, then a monk, finally into a high lama is very interesting and inspiring. All these beckon people’s curiosity to want to know more about Tsem Rinpoche’s promise and his biography. This video has effectively served its intended purpose within a very short time frame of 1:11 minutes!

  213. Chan Yau Mun on Feb 1, 2014 at 11:20 am

    I vote for KMP04 because it is the most unique among all the videos. It shows the true picture of reality.

  214. Jennifer on Jan 31, 2014 at 9:34 pm

    I would like to vote for KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo. Perfect advert for the author to introduce his books and David was very natural and funny.

  215. Mavis Yeh on Jan 31, 2014 at 9:32 pm

    All of the videos are done beautifully and I congratulate everyone who put their heart and effort into it. It is a very difficult decision to pick just one, and my vote goes to KMP06 – If Not Now, When? Love Edition.

  216. Pastor Yek Yee on Jan 30, 2014 at 11:53 pm

    Of Course I will vote KO02 (Chinese),

    the reason the video is very easy to understand and very beautiful. Commercial yet focus on promote Kechara Oasis and vegetarian.

  217. Hee Thye Sang on Jan 30, 2014 at 11:51 pm

    我选择KO02,是因此片把素食主意帶到無宗教色彩,且将茹素是人类因有之情操的訊息清晰帶出。

  218. Datuk May on Jan 29, 2014 at 3:02 pm

    I have seen the videos so many times and still like them all. But life is such I only have one choice. So I vote for KMP04 as the script is direct and clear to the point. Peace is so important now for our current turbulent world.

    I like the presentation and the subtle message how disturbed our minds really are if we take a good look at the mirror, which is what is portrayed well by LiKim.

    The video is disturbing and makes us realise we can do something about anything when we put our minds to it and remove our own clatter.

    Makes me wonder that is so powerful in the contents of the book and wish to read it.

  219. Gwee Saw Tin on Jan 29, 2014 at 12:31 am

    I, Gwee Saw Tin,vote for KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo. I feel he is a born actor, his actions being so natural and spontaneous.Hence one cannot help but enjoy the lightheartedness depicted. Congrats, David, for an enjoyable video – albeit for just a few minutes!!

  220. Boon on Jan 28, 2014 at 11:20 pm

    It is amazing ! All of them are able to produced good video clips. I would like to vote for KO04. Because this video clips can promote vegetarianism to the public,which indirectly generate compassion among themselves to reduce the meat consumption. Thus, people are able to have healthy lifestyle and many animals will be save.

    • Boon on Jan 28, 2014 at 11:31 pm

      Sorry for typing error. I would like to vote for KO01. Thanks.

  221. Adrian Chow on Jan 28, 2014 at 7:39 pm

    Hi my vote is for KMP04. Visually is stunning and unexpected. Clever to use colour to express the emotion of individual. Very memorable script which in SYNC with the visual as well.

  222. KH Ng on Jan 28, 2014 at 6:08 pm

    Well, I made the mistake of reading the votes and comments before I vote and as I agree with many of the comments and reasons, it makes my voting much more difficult. LOL.
    I like KMP08 David Lai’s Combo for the reality feel by David and it features a real person at work and I like KO01 “Superb Vegetarian Dining…” for its overall feel, cinematography and easy to understand message. Of course, KMP06 “If Not Now When? Love Edition” for its message of taking action and faith..plus some canvassing from the “actor” hehe.

    However, my vote goes to KMP07 “The Promise” for the fact that all the other videos won’t exist if “The Promise” was not made and being fulfilled. So voting for “The Promise” is like voting for all the videos. Well I am a diplomat.LOL.

  223. Danny Koh on Jan 28, 2014 at 11:50 am

    All of the videos are just fantastic. They are all well produced and informative to me. Great work for the team behind these videos.

    I wish I can vote for the top 5 or top 3 videos but too bad we can only choose one.

    My vote goes to KMP06 – If not now, when? Love eition. This is because of its cinematography and the message delivered (overcome our own fear and move forward) capture my attention the most.

  224. Erickksiow on Jan 28, 2014 at 9:12 am

    I vote KP14. Clear shooting and clear explanation.

    Thank You.

    Eric kksiow

  225. michelle on Jan 27, 2014 at 7:26 pm

    I would like to vote for KMP08- David Lai’s Book Combo because it is funny and inspiring. Not to mention creative too (:

  226. vivacela on Jan 27, 2014 at 6:38 pm

    Hello everyone! All the members of Kechara did a good job in explaining the products and videos are perfect! However it is so heartbreaking that i can only vote for 1.
    Tho i really love food video (KO01) but my vote goes to David Lai’s vid : KMP08. It is “So David”. He makes me want to read his books! ^_^

  227. Ong Chuwin Yee on Jan 27, 2014 at 5:26 pm

    I vote for KO02 , We are able to enjoy the wonderful food in a wonderful environment. We also able to celebrate wedding, birthday party in this wonderful palace.

    • Pastor Adeline on Feb 11, 2014 at 11:25 pm

      Dear Chuwin Yee, rarely can you find vegetarian restaurant that can accommodate so many & provide facilities for all occasions. It is really amazing that Kechara Oasis can cater to that! Thank you for your vote. Pastor Adeline

  228. Kien Wong on Jan 27, 2014 at 2:26 pm

    I will vote for KMP04 – The peace.
    It is simply very simply and yet very touch to most of the peoples’ issue. All the shot firms are presented with effort which create awareness to peoples around us. Thanks you, Kien

  229. Chee ks on Jan 27, 2014 at 11:34 am

    我投选KO02 ( chinese ) 因为我有參与制作这部短片,所以我必须支持我们的制作小组,他们真的很用心,很專业的把克切拉如意軒呈现给普罗大衆,而且还是一部非常棒的廣告宣传 !

  230. pat on Jan 27, 2014 at 9:25 am

    Wow!!All the videos are Great.Congratulations to all involved in the making of all this nice and informative videos.
    Really not easy to select as all the videos are equally good.
    I will vote for “The Promise” KMP 07 .Every Pictures and every Quotes in the video are very meaningful and will touch every heart.

  231. Siong Woan Chua on Jan 27, 2014 at 7:52 am

    I vote for KMP08. Because David was very natura, he was funny and most of all it makes many to get all his books
    5634

  232. Ooi Cheng Sooi on Jan 27, 2014 at 2:00 am

    My vote is for KMP07- The Promise. Within the brief time frame the clip managed to encapsulate the essence of the Guru’s childhood and his altruistic vocation to serve with compassion and to save all sentient beings from landing in the lower realms in the next rebirth. Every one should read The Promise to appreciate the tenacity to hold on to a vow made. Congrats to the team who made this presentation.

  233. Wai Kee on Jan 27, 2014 at 12:32 am

    Hi, i would like to vote for KMP07 – the promise. I would be curious myself to buy the biography if i know nothing about Kechara. It serve as good introduction to our Guru and what Kechara do. Thank you!

  234. Wylfred on Jan 27, 2014 at 12:04 am

    I vote for KO 02, because the script is interesting and very professional, and the camera angle is good

  235. Rena Wong on Jan 26, 2014 at 11:35 pm

    All the videos entries promotes the different departments activities and products of Kechara House. Very captivating, creative and interesting. Am torn between the 2 which is KO01 and KP09. Why? Simply because I love food and I also love Setrap….lol

    I will go for KO01, Kechara Oasis. The venue was well captured giving audience a feel of the unique modern state of the art restaurant to dine in this fine dining restaurant. Am attracted to the ambience, settings and lightings. It features the many interesting dishes and its’ ability to customise to multi-cultural events and occasions requirements. It also promotes vegetarianism which will benefit one’s well being and the environment as a whole.

    Thank you

  236. tenzin llhamo on Jan 26, 2014 at 11:24 pm

    Well done everyone! The videos are really professional and inviting. I enjoyed watching the videos as they all have clear explanations of the products.
    But I can only vote 1, therefore, I vote for KO01 because it carries a message to promote vegetarianism which applies to all religions. There may be people out there who are vegetarians but not into spiritualism and that is why many can relate to this video. Its a very ‘healthy’ video! Hehe…
    Btw, I LOVE the decorations for all the different celebrations. Its really modern yet traditional in its way. And the best thing is that Kechara Oasis can cater to the different needs.

    Thank you.
    Pammie Yap

  237. PB on Jan 26, 2014 at 10:00 pm

    I will vote for video KMP07 – “The Promise” because the dynamic & powerful music attracted me to the video.

  238. kumar on Jan 26, 2014 at 9:46 pm

    kumar KSK i like this

    • kumar on Jan 26, 2014 at 9:54 pm

      kumar KSK i like this i vote KP02

  239. thierry on Jan 26, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    I love the little Mumu barking at the beginning of every KMP video, for that I vote KMP already.
    Within KMP, I like the video on the 108WTGMY, once the apple is biten the whole picture gets colors…
    My vote:
    KMP03 -108 ways to grab my apple

  240. Nani KSA on Jan 26, 2014 at 9:19 pm

    i vote KMP08

  241. Angelshooi on Jan 26, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    I would like to vote for KMP07- The Promise.

    The pictures in the video are stunning and they promote Rinpoche very well! In the video, from Rinpoche’s modelling pictures to Rinpoche giving teachings, they show how Rinpoche benefits all sentient beings because instead of becoming a Hollywood star/model, Rinpoche chose to become a monk and remain here in Malaysia to benefit us all.

  242. Lum Kok Luen on Jan 26, 2014 at 5:58 pm

    I vote for KMP04 – Peace video as best for the following reasons:
    1) It really reminds us the truth that if we seek peace, we must start ourselves. Nobody can achieve peace without starting with oneself
    2) Once we start, it will spread and peace can be achieved if we spread kindness and compassion together.

    Lum KL

  243. Pastor Shin on Jan 26, 2014 at 5:32 pm

    I vote for KO01 (Kechara Oasis).

    Simple & straightforward script that is universal, presenting the various “options” and features of the product. The message of vegetarianism is encouraging and weaved in at the introduction, supported by good professional cinematography, and I feel most importantly, it will make people want to go get the product.

    However, all the entries are from hard work and creativity of the competing teams, this itself is a winner and I must congratulate all for these wonderful 33 videos! I especially like the original & down to earth video of David Lai’s Book Combo video.

  244. Kechara Oasis Jaya One on Jan 26, 2014 at 3:22 pm

    Kechara Oasis Jaya One staffs vote:-

    1) Chef Nick- I choose KO 01, because the video shoot is beautiful

    Thank you

  245. Matthew Campbell on Jan 26, 2014 at 2:36 pm

    I vote for KO01 (English)
    Kechara Oasis.
    The script is clear.. video quality is excellent and the representations are versatile.

  246. Victor Choi on Jan 26, 2014 at 1:34 pm

    Hi! I would like to vote for the video KO01.

    Reason – A real commercial video that shows an uplifting vegetarian restaurant that can cater in all sorts of event. Despite Buddhist is a vegetarian, also to support in stop animal from suffering in our source of food which been developed in our midstream for decades.

  247. Gordon Lim on Jan 26, 2014 at 12:17 am

    I would go for KO02 (Chinese), judging on marketing standpoint. Rational behinds:
    1) Attractive and compelling visual experience.
    2) Good selling point on promoting restaurant for major occasions that people normally will not come across. Provide good alternative to choose for vegetarian food.
    3) Food’s visual look is appealing.

  248. Linny Neoh on Jan 25, 2014 at 10:51 pm

    i would like to for david KMP08

  249. Darren Kechara on Jan 25, 2014 at 10:48 pm

    I voted the KMP12 video, The Promise poem. Rinpoche’s guru devotion was an inspiration for every practioner. 🙂

    • Darren Kechara on Jan 25, 2014 at 10:53 pm

      Sorry, just realised that KMP12 video is not for voting. I’ll pick KO01 instead. I like the dining & joyful concept of the video. 🙂

      Thanks

  250. KYC on Jan 25, 2014 at 10:26 pm

    I vote for KO 01 (Kechara Oasis) because it is very professionally done. It is a good promotional video for the delicious vegetarian food, highlighting the ambiance, service, and quality management of the whole set-up. People will be attracted to the beautiful decor, cleanliness and friendliness of the place. Customers include corporate people, families, office workers and it shows KO catering for all types of celebrations. KO represents Kechara’s stand against animal cruelty.

  251. Jun Zhen on Jan 25, 2014 at 9:59 pm

    Must congrats all the teams for an excellent job on all the videos.I personally believe everyone is a winner already by producing the videos. Coming from a production background, I would have to say Kechara Oasis video is on the top on my list, well executed in terms of camerawork, script, visual presentation, narration and all.

    My heart do say otherwise as I am drawn to a more simple, direct video that would “call for” me to “buy”. They are exquisitely designed, and keep you close enough to remind you of your vows and commitments to the teachings of the Buddha, and the practice of it. My vote goes to…

    KP04 – Buddha Pendants. (would love to have one, one day)

    Having said that, how I wish I had more than ONE vote!
    Kudos to all the teams!

    JZ

  252. Patrick Lim on Jan 25, 2014 at 9:51 pm

    It took me nearly a week to let everything to digest first before I vote. Let me first of all say that all of the videos are done very well. A few fell below my radar as it was not particularly engaging. In terms of a well-produced video, it would be Kechara Oasis but the video still has a corporate feel and it could have been broken into 2 parts to make each of them tight.
    If I would vote, I would have voted for The Promise Poem but the video is just for viewing only. Why? It tells a story very well through the poem with interesting images to support.
    My vote then is for KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo. Personally, I have not met David yet but I feel the video brings out the person and his journey. Technically it might not be the best but there is a sincerity in the video. So, KMP08 it is.

  253. Davin KP on Jan 25, 2014 at 9:23 pm

    I’d like to vote for KP14 (Chinese). I like to wear Buddha pendant and the video the Buddha pendant look so stunning and beautiful.

  254. Wong Suet Moi on Jan 25, 2014 at 8:19 pm

    I like to vote for KO 02 Chinese.

    Kechara Oasis always can produce new menu and the food is super delicious. The video explain very clear.

  255. Soon Huat on Jan 25, 2014 at 7:34 pm

    I would like to vote for KO02 because of the way it was filmed. From the clip, I do not feel that it is difficult to be vegetarian and it is my dream too. There are plenty of choice of veggie and why we need to satisfy others’ life to support our lives.

  256. Soon Huat on Jan 25, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    I would like to vote for KO02 because of the way it was filmed. From the clip, I do not feel that it is not difficult to be vegetarian and it is my dream too. There are plenty of choice of veggie and why we need to satisfy others’ life to support our lives.

  257. Angel Seow on Jan 25, 2014 at 3:15 pm

    I vote for KMP04 (Peace).

    I like this video for its concept. It’s short, sweet, subtle and at the same time direct. The message is presented nicely.

  258. Felix Kong on Jan 25, 2014 at 12:47 pm

    I vote for KP04~ Buddha Pendants. Besides can get blessings from Buddha pendant when we wear it, and also can plant a seed to other peoples when see Buddha image. May they have opportunity to learn Dharma and practice Dharma.

  259. Nancy ng on Jan 25, 2014 at 12:06 pm

    I vote kmp01 Tsongkhapa series cos people in depression may be attracted to the solution the practice promises

  260. Elaine phang on Jan 25, 2014 at 11:07 am

    我喜欢kp14他给我的感觉是美术感和潮流感,还可带出它的功效看了之后有种要把它带回家的感觉

  261. Alan Chan ( KHJB) on Jan 25, 2014 at 10:51 am

    Kecharian did a good job and created quality kechara videos , it difficult for me to choice between KMP04 (the peace ) KMP08 ( David combo books ) KMP09 ( Setrap-Chinese) , I am finally voted to KMP04 after review few times, it very creative and well presentation to deliver the message to others. I have make my choice and you ?

  262. Tenzin Losang on Jan 25, 2014 at 10:29 am

    I’ll vote for KO01 (Kechara Oasis).

    The cinematography, music, photography and narrator all combine to make it a video that stirs up excitement and interest in the viewer. It makes me feel like dining at KO just to feel what it’s all about. The cinematography and narration have a high level of professionalism that makes the other videos look amateurish.

  263. Carmen K on Jan 25, 2014 at 7:59 am

    All the videos are great. Excellent effort and hard work put towards it to reflect the high quality and wonderful products and services Kechara offers.

    I wish the voting system was based on different categories – i.e. Best Script, Best Cinematography, Best Creativity and Best Overall video. It’s so hard to choose ONE amongst the many great videos that has been created.

    Anyways, my pick would be KMP – 04 (Peace) for the following reasons:

    1. The video captured me from the word go. When the video was introduced with the script “I have a degree, a great job, a loving family and a fantastic future”…it captures the audience because the general public would relate to that. When I played the video without watching it, I heard the script, and immediately thought, I have a degree too, so what..which interested me to want to watch the video.

    2. The concept of the video is really creative. I like the contrast between what people’s perception of “happiness” and “sadness” is and then the resulting idea of being able to make a choice to make a difference, like picking up the book and reading it to show that despite the situation, our resulting choices are more important (but I guess a few other videos also highlighted that eg. The video for If Not Now, When)

    3. As a viewer, it made me want to buy the product

    4. I like the script where it tells us what we want, eg. Peace/happiness (which is what most people want), and how to get it (by reading the book which would guide you to it)

    Also, guys, I hope that everyone reads the article, captions and watches all the videos BEFORE voting. KMP12, The Promise Poem is NOT UP FOR VOTING so please stop voting for it.

    Thank you
    Carmen

  264. jimmy tan on Jan 24, 2014 at 10:30 pm

    i vote for KO01 . hope more ppl will watch this video and promote vegetarian to the public.

  265. Sammi Chan on Jan 24, 2014 at 9:34 pm

    我投选K002, 因为这短片不是在宣扬宗教,而是在提倡素食,一般任何宗教都可以接受。一般喜庆宴会都讲究排场,如婚宴、寿宴和满月宴等都大排宴席…..而Kechara的如意轩的装备正好可以满足要大排宴席的客人。试想,一场婚宴、寿宴、满月宴假如是以荤食来招待的话,不懂又要残杀几只鸡、鸭、豬、鱼虾等,不错这可是让賓客和主人家吃得津津有味,但这已埋下了多少怨气?宣扬素食,就是在宣扬不杀生,从我们日常生活"吃"开始….. 杀生减少,怨恨也自然少……怨恨少了自然就多一份爱心!这就是佛说的”BODHICITTA” ~ 将智慧溶入生活化。

  266. Jace Chong on Jan 24, 2014 at 7:08 pm

    My vote goes to KMP04 – Peace

    For me it fulfills all the video qualities that mentioned. The idea is good and visually well presented.

    Video production is not an easy task yet it’s a very strong medium to convey message. Thank you everybody putting efforts to promote Kechara products.

  267. Lilyn Tan on Jan 24, 2014 at 2:37 pm

    I’d enjoyed watching KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo video, it’s fun and creative! David is very talented writer as well as great dharma teacher.

  268. Ron Wong on Jan 24, 2014 at 2:17 pm

    I vote the video KMP04-Peace.
    I like the idea of the black & white faces which represent the positive & negative experiences that we will get when we search for happiness from outside. We cannot change or control things that are happening around us but we sure can stop it from affecting our state of mind. Wiping of the paint from the face review the inner peace within, the true happiness we long for.

  269. Calvin Kam on Jan 24, 2014 at 10:56 am

    I would like to vote for KO02.
    because it was delicious food and comfort environment message pass out to the public. It may make more people accept vegetarian foods as their occasional function dinner indirectly cease the bad karma generate to the public.

  270. Ashlee Tam on Jan 24, 2014 at 10:45 am

    Hi, Since KMP012 is not avail for voting, I will vote for KO01. The video is so professionally done, it really shows how a beautiful experience of vegetarian dining at Kechara Oasis. Well done to the team who did a marvelous job in creating this video!!

  271. AdelineTan on Jan 24, 2014 at 2:45 am

    My vote goes to KMP07 “The Promise”… form Rinpoche to return as a living Buddha life after life to benefit the world and to liberate all sentient beings in samsara.

  272. Wei Theng on Jan 24, 2014 at 1:15 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for getting three team to do these videos.
    It is really hard to make a decision to choose the best video. All the videos are very nicely done.
    The KP series explains each Dharma items well. The KMP series are very creative to able to interest a lot of people wanting to get the books to have a better life or be a better person. The KO videos also very nicely done and makes me feel hungry… heheh.. So, I vote for KO02 (Chinese)! 🙂

    • Pastor Adeline on Feb 10, 2014 at 9:30 pm

      Haha! Making you hungry has served the purpose of the video for sure. Thank you Wei Theng! Pastor Adeline

    Setrap will give us protection and helping us to clear obstacles that we are facing in our daily life.
    Cheers for Setrap.

  275. freon on Jan 23, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    Ko01
    I choose this video because it is a real commercial video.
    Clear message to people about Kechara Oasis- Good Food, Good Place.
    It clearly recommended on the vegetarian restaurant.

  276. Mai on Jan 23, 2014 at 11:08 pm

    KMP02
    I choose this video. It has unique thought. Because I learned & I gained some moral lessons within and its very inspiring. All of us has a reason why we are leaving in this world. As they say ” life is too short” so Why I Make myself Unhappy . If there is a way

    I vote for KMP04 – Peace

    It may sound weird, but I got goosebumps on watching this video. I guess it could be due to the background music and the haunting voice of Li Kim.

    Peace is what we need in today’s world and it definitely start from the inside. This video is simple yet it conveys the message in a very bold and creative way. Sometimes less is more…

    Best of luck!

    I like it because this is the inspiration to make me believe in Buddhism. The video simple, short and easy to understand. I wish more people can have faith in Buddhism after watching the video.

  285. Lum Kok Luen on Jan 23, 2014 at 10:03 pm

    My favourite video is Peace because:
    1) It makes us realise that everything starts with ourselves
    2) We must initiate things from within if we are to be happy and have meaning to life.
    3) There is a solution to peace and that is to take refuge in Dharma.

  286. Choi Sheem on Jan 23, 2014 at 9:52 pm

    After watching all of the videos, I would like to vote for KMP08- David Lai’s Book Combo. It is simple but able to capture my attention to the books that David is promoting.

  287. Andrew James Boon on Jan 23, 2014 at 9:39 pm

    Well done to all involved in creating these commercials in such a short period of time! I can see a lot of effort has gone into the thought process and the production however there can only be one winner.

    For me it was a close battle between KMP06 – If not now when and KMP07 – The Promise.

    But my vote goes to KMP07 – The Promise

    Why: Because the script was concise and to the point, though lacking cinematography, the editing was done well with catchy visuals interspersed with bold and also catchy typography, which is perfect for a minute long commercial. One has to keep the audience enraptured and interested till the end message where one has the “call to action” which in this case is to go out and buy a copy. Hence, for me, this particular commercial fulfilled the main criteria of making the product interesting, giving the highlight of the product and finally go out and get one.

    Though the rest of the commercials did have the 3 elements but in varying degrees. Quite a few of them though beautifully shot, one looses the product in the end as it “drags on” a little.

    All in all a job very well done considering the timing. In most advertising companies, such commercials would take 3-4 months to produce with many rounds of editing and re-editing. Kudos again to the teams involved!

    • Joy on Jan 24, 2014 at 4:12 pm

      Thank you so much for your vote and feedback Andrew 🙂 Really appreciate it coming from someone who used to be in the ad industry. But I am surprised you choose The Promise hehe… cos I was afraid that it may look too much like a slide show. But I guess the fast cuts and music keeps your attention there in viewing. I’m glad you enjoyed it 😉

    I would like to vote for video KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo because the concept of the video is very different, creative. The concept of the video, background music and the way how David speak goes really well together. I think the younger generations will like something like this, including me. And I would also like to say that all the other 32 videos are good videos too. Its a job well done for all the hardworking kecharians. hehe. Thankyou

  291. June Kang on Jan 23, 2014 at 4:42 pm

    I vote KMP08-David Lai’s Book Combo.

    David is sincere, he don’t hide, he just show his real funny side in video. He personally shown in the video and proudly show his book and what he said made the book look more alive during the end of the video. It attracted me to buy the book again to support him.

    All the other videos is great also, well done.

  292. Pastor Han Nee on Jan 23, 2014 at 4:01 pm

    I must begin by congratulating everyone who contributed to the production of every one of these videos. The end result is that each one is a well crafted and professionally presented video from beginning to end.

    It is, as a number of people have said, very difficult to choose the best video. I am particularly torn between KMP 07 “THE PROMISE” and KMP 08 – David Lai’s Book Combo. The Promise is exceptional because its script and execution of script are equally perfect.I like the Introduction which dramatically introduces us to the Guru of this age, skillful and donning many coats. It’s good in the beginning, good in the middle and exceptionally good in the end, where it brings us back to the Promise to benefit the world, which Tsem Rinpoche had made to his Guru Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.

    Tsem Rinpoche’s Guru Devotion is unexcelled. Nonetheless, what finally made me choose to vote for KMP 08 – David Lai’s Book Combo is the fact that I and many people can identify with his self-doubt and be inspired by his Guru Devotion, which caused him to cast aside his own self-doubt and trust his Guru’s decision and instruction that he can and should write. Many too will be inspired by him to do something they are diffident of doing, knowing that it will benefit many people( as his Guru had seen). He also raises hopes of people of realizing their dreams because, after having completed his first book,he gained his confidence and turned around to become a writer of several books!

    This book lifts up the ordinary person’s hopes and make them dare to dream. David is a natural and so spontaneous. That is his charm and magic which he will weave around people who will be compelled to buy and read this book.
    I vote for KMP 08 – David Lai’s Book Combo

    Wow, fantastic videos! All of them are nice and it is unbelievable that all videos are done in a very short period of time. In Kechara, nothing is impossible.. ;p

    Before I vote, I would like to say “Bravo!” to everyone who was involved in the making of the videos, you guys are amazing, please keep up with the good work!!!

    I would like to vote for KMP04-Peace.

    This video is very simple but clearly describe the struggles everyone go through in life. We are often overwhelmed by the joy or sadness we encountered daily and forget to look into our inner self where true happiness arises. Discovering our true self is how we find peace and real happiness.

    I vote for KMP06 – If not Now, When? Love Edition.
    The reason I vote for this is because I think most of us will think of what are we really have to do before it’s too late for us in this life time. Because of that, I think this video will draw us much attention and the video is the great to brings out the messages to everyone.

    Thank you!

  302. Sofi on Jan 22, 2014 at 8:48 pm

    Bravo to all the participants. Really good, short and informative videos.
    My first choice would have been KMP12 (poem so aptly tells of Rinpoche’s choice and promise).
    I liked KMP09 (Chinese Setrap) as the video is quite captivating wt awesome Setrap’s statue, Rinpoche’s picture, Pastor Yek Yee explaining the benefit of his practice, tantalizing glimpse of the Tibetan practice of offerings n prayers.
    KO01 & KO02 are good as they appeal to wider selection of consumers…no longer Buddhist vegetarianism but more health conscious vegetarianism. The videos shows how KO caters to individuals, families, corporate, happy occasions (ie. weddings, birthdays, etc) and from young children to elderly. The food looks delicious and Jimmy looks so professional, expertly tossing food in the wok.
    But my vote goes to KMP07 – where Rinpoche was a strikingly good looking model and a Buddhist monk. My first ever contact was reading about him as a model in The Star newspapers years ago and was intrigue by how he can be in such a glamorous life, yet maintain his vows within. At that time, I had wonder how interesting it would be to listen to his teachings. A passing thought. Guess what! It came true, albeit many years passing by.

    KP03 – Tibetan Furniture

    I guess the reason why i voted for this video is because i think it brings across to the viewer the fact that even though simply furniture, the designs all have meanings behind them. This was not something I had even thought about before scripting the video….. whoops, i mean watching the video!

  305. Yvonne Yap on Jan 22, 2014 at 6:29 pm

    Too bad that The Promise Poem is not in the list of voting or else it touches my heart and caught my attention.

    I would vote for KMP 04 – Peace, this video stood out to me as it’s edgy and bold with the change of music while the message to transform kicked in and the concept of the plot is nice and creative.

    David’s video is cute as well but didn’t quite resonate with me, oops sorry. Don’t worry David, you are still a sweet heart 😛

    • David Lai on Feb 12, 2014 at 3:39 am

      No problem. The others are really good too.

  307. HelenaC on Jan 22, 2014 at 5:29 pm

    KMP06 – If Not Now, When? Love Edition

    I love this video the best reason being it touches my heart. In life there are so many we have been missing due to we have too much concern on this and that. I love this video that brought out the message that if we don’t do it now, then when?We will never know what will happen in the very next second/minute. We don’t want to left any regrets behind because time will never turn back. When you really want to do it perhaps its too late or will never have the chance.
    Very often that I asked myself if not now, when? Then you will waste no time, and also I join Kechara full time inspired by this words and the book.

  308. jp on Jan 22, 2014 at 4:04 pm

    I vote for David Lai’s Book Combo because the video captures the attention of the audience throughout and promotes the author. Viewers get to see a glimpse of who David Lai is and can immediately relate to his insecurities and vulnerabilities. Yet he overcomes them with results to show. Very powerful tool to promote himself as an author and his books.

    • David Lai on Feb 12, 2014 at 3:37 am

      Thanks JP. Yup, you are right and I wrote the advert hoping to convey to the viewer a little bit about who I am. You were perceptive enough to have noticed that and thank you very much for the very kind vote.

  309. Fong on Jan 22, 2014 at 2:37 pm

    My vote goes to kmp07, The Promise. It was intriguing use of Rinpoche’s modeling photos. Unexpected turn within the video from model/actor to monk. It piqued my interest. And of course, the mumu emblem is a winner

  310. Antoinette on Jan 22, 2014 at 9:38 am

    This is a difficult choice!

    I like esp. the personal message.

    • David Lai on Feb 12, 2014 at 3:35 am

      Thank you Antoinette for your very kind vote… I didn’t really planned my advert to have a message but it became like that.

  311. Pastor Martin on Jan 22, 2014 at 6:31 am

    KMP07 (The Promise) has my vote because it is about Tsem Rinpoche and the life in Dharma Rinpoche has given to everyone he meets and the promise Rinpoche made and kept which is really the reason why there is even a need for all the other videos. I thought KMP07 very aptly captures how versatile Rinpoche is in delivering the Dharma and that itself is a lesson-not to be fixated in a certain perception. It made me want to find out more about this Guru who does not fit the mold.

    A very close second (I know only one vote counts) is David Lai’s video, KMP08 and it is very charming, cute and “very David” as so many people have said. But to me the video does not do justice to the David whom I have seen with my eyes, slay the goliath of obscuration and obstacles. It does not do justice to the encyclopaedic mind in Dharma that is David Lai. To me David is a Dharma heavy weight in the making and Dharma needs a young hero. Wish the video represented David’s mind better.

    • David Lai on Feb 12, 2014 at 2:00 am

      Wow Pastor Martin, Thank you very much for the compliment. I know I am full of interesting Dharma sharings and perhaps more so than the average joe because of my time spent with Rinpoche and a little certain interest of mine. However, if you put me in a different scenario and I wouldn’t be as knowledgeable and smart.

  312. Patriciasnodgrass1958 on Jan 22, 2014 at 4:40 am

    Ok, I vote for: “KMP06 – If Not Now, When? Love Edition”. But it was a real tie, the other two being David Lai’s entry and The Promise. Incredibly well done videos for “amateurs”!*o*

    I liked KMP06 because of how well everything played together, music, direction, visually. Fear is a monster we all constantly nurture, therefore the message is highly relevant! Yeah, and I loved the choice of song.;)

    Congratulations to the hard work that was put into this competition, I couldn’t find a single video I “disliked”, that in itself is truly remarkable lol! Once again, congratulations to all the teams, superb results.;o

  314. Ong Moh Mei on Jan 22, 2014 at 12:18 am

    Amazing efforts by all the teams who did the videos above. I know KMP12 – The Promise Poem is not up for voting but that’s a winner for me. I guess creativity begets creativity. The effects of these videos actually brought forth even more creative ideas in some people.

    For voting it’s between KMP07 and KMP08. In the end, my vote goes to KMP08 for having the personal touch, fun element and script that can engage the audience to the video and the products it promotes.

    • joy on Jan 22, 2014 at 1:37 am

      Thank you PMM for your kind feedback! Glad that you liked the Promise Poem but sorry it is not for voting here. Yes The Promise book was the most challenging script to shoot. Although we did a more conventional one which is up for voting, we wanted to present to Rinpoche another angle, that would do the book justice! It wasn’t like we could shoot Rinpoche himself, and it wasn’t easy to fill it in with any other characters cos it is a biography of someone larger than life… our Guru hehe. So the Poem which Wendy wrote was really so apt and it captured the book, the bio and Rinpoche’s life journey in a beautifully written poetry and to ensure the script was well carried out in visual, the visual effects had to be creative as well.

David Lai is definitely one of Kechara’s most inspiring author. Well done to everyone who has participated in the making of all the wonderful videos.

  329. Choongs on Jan 21, 2014 at 4:04 pm

    A couple of observations first:

    David (KMP08) a.k.a. @frozbyte is getting the lion’s share of women’s votes. Ahem! Bill Clinton/Barack Obama/JFK/maybe even Frank Sinatra in the making…

    The videos in the Chinese language are getting few votes here probably because this blog is in Engleesh! Ta Zhia Hou!

    I am biased towards voting for video “KMP07, The Promise”, because the more pictures you have of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, the better! Never too much of a good thing.

    But I will cast my vote for video “KMP09, (Chinese) Setrap”, because I favor the underdog(s) and, well, because I’m in the video! LOL

    My vote is KO01 Kechara Oasis-Vegetarian Food. All the videos are good but I can only choose one. KO01 video looks beautiful and attractive . Hope this video promotes and make people realize taking vegetarian food will enhance their health , spiritual life and mind for the better.

    sincerely
    Eunice Pun

    • Pastor Adeline on Jan 22, 2014 at 7:05 pm

      Thank you Eunice for taking your time to vote! You’ve indeed see the main message of the video – to invite people to take up vegetarianism for the betterment of their health and spiritual growth! Good choice, Pastor Adeline

      • Eunice Rose on Jan 23, 2014 at 10:30 pm

        You are welcome . Able to contribute in whatever way possible and helping others is what everyone have to start doing . I am very happy to participate anyway. Rejoice 🙂

  333. P Lanse on Jan 21, 2014 at 11:22 am

    I am so surprise within such a short period of time, these 3 teams managed to come out with such good quality of videos. It’s not easy for me to make a choice as many of them are indeed very interesting. However, since I have to vote for only one video, I will vote for KMP08, which is David Lai’s Book Combo, not only because it is very catchy, funny and creative, most importantly it’s so “David”. It really shows how David’s progressive positive transformation under the guidance of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche. Thank you all for your effort.

  334. Aw on Jan 21, 2014 at 7:37 am

    I vote for KMP08 – David Lai’s book combo
    David is so natural and the whole video stand out the most .

  335. Jacinta Goh on Jan 21, 2014 at 6:56 am

    I think most of the comments sums it all! Bravo to those who have contributed to it… You guys are ..unbelievably talented! However, I have to cast my vote too.

    I would like to vote for KMP 09 Chinese Setrap.

  336. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Jan 21, 2014 at 3:07 am

    I vote for KMP09 (Chinese) – Setrap 金甲衣护法

    Because i love Dharma Protector… hehehe…

  337. Yeo (Kuantan) on Jan 21, 2014 at 12:54 am

    我選KP14,佛坠!
    因为拍摄漂亮,讲解得很好,没接触过或看过佛坠的人,看了肯定更想了解,卖点强!

  338. Lucy Yap on Jan 21, 2014 at 12:32 am

    My vote will be KMP07 ‘THE PROMISE’ The most important part of a video is the script!Although this is a short video,the script is fabulous with key messages that are not overlooked.
    Thank you for creating an extremely beautiful video.

  339. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Jan 21, 2014 at 12:28 am

    All the videos are fantastic and high quality of productions. It precisely introduce each products feature and unique quality. Thanks for everyone hardwork.
    I would like to vote for KO01 (English) because it bring out high quality vegetarian foods image, it will attract more people would like to visit Kechara Oasis.

    • Pastor Adeline on Jan 22, 2014 at 7:01 pm

      You are right Grace! All the videos are fantastic and they are not done likely for Kechara’s fantastic products and services! On behalf of the team, thank you sincerely for voting KO01! Let’s make vegetarianism the main stream! Pastor Adeline

      • Grace Leu(KHJB) on Jan 25, 2014 at 4:11 pm

        You are welcome, it is my pleasure to join the voting events. May vegetarianism spread throughout the world !

  340. sweekeong on Jan 21, 2014 at 12:15 am

    I vote for KMP06 – If Not Now, When? Love Edition because I like the scene where each person is a depicted in a situation in a given moment. This relates very much to us because we live from one moment to another moment. Also I like the fact that what is inside the book was shown, a very nice teaser.

  341. Li Kim on Jan 21, 2014 at 12:11 am

    I vote for KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo

    It was a really hard decision to only vote ONE… But eventually I chose this one. This video tells us about David and his relationship with Rinpoche. The nurturing relationship is what appeals to me. Of course I adore David too… there is some bias. But in all honesty I feel that this video, for me, fulfils the criteria for best video. Well done the KMP video team.

    Last note, the second video on The Promise poem is really good and creative.

    • joy on Jan 21, 2014 at 1:19 am

      Thanks Li Kim… but sorry cannot vote for the Promise Poem 🙁

    • David Lai on Jan 26, 2014 at 11:46 am

      Thank you boss for voting for me. It is very sweet of you. All the best with the filming of your upcoming Paranormal Zone. Can’t wait to watch it when it goes on video…

  342. So Kin Hoe (KH Ipoh) on Jan 20, 2014 at 11:11 pm

    All the videos are master piece and very well planned in order to bring out the purpose, essence and meaning of each product within a very short period of time. I would like to vote for KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo because he has set a very good example for many lay people to start up a spiritual path and he is very natural of being himself in front of a camera.

  343. Pastor Adeline on Jan 20, 2014 at 9:22 pm

    I vote for KO01 because I was one of them who produces the video, hehe!

    • joy on Jan 21, 2014 at 1:17 am

      Hahaha sooo cute Pastor Adeline. Next time do another funny video of an aunties having conversation on where to eat and dine for their daughter’s wedding. Oh interesting… I just had an idea.

      • Pastor Adeline on Jan 21, 2014 at 11:20 am

        Kep those ideas coming Joy! I’m sure lots of aunties like to be in the video, hehe!

  344. Jim Yeh on Jan 20, 2014 at 8:28 pm

    I vote for KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo because David is an excellent writer who overcame hurdles to become a writer for the sole purpose of spreading the Dharma and Rinpoche’s teachings.

    Great video!

    “✮✮✮✮✮ – 5 stars all the way.” – Jim Yeh

  345. Beatrix Ooi on Jan 20, 2014 at 7:45 pm

    These videos are very nicely and creatively done, but I would go for KMP08- David Lai’s Book Combo. David’s video is very different from the others, it brings out the message in a very funny and sincere way, it’s more towards our every day lives.

    Awesome videos, great job everyone!! 🙂

  346. Cindy on Jan 20, 2014 at 7:28 pm

    I like to vote for :-

    Best overall videos :-

    a) KMPO1 – Lama Tsongkhapa Series
    b). KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo
    c) KMP07 – The Promise

    Thank you

    • Pastor Adeline on Jan 20, 2014 at 9:19 pm

      Dear Cindy,

      You can only vote ONCE for ONE video. Which one will that be please?

      Thank you,
      Pastor Adeline

    • Cindy on Jan 21, 2014 at 4:13 pm

      I like to vote :

      Best videos : KMP01 – Lama Tsongkhapa Series

      Thank you

  347. Han on Jan 20, 2014 at 6:47 pm

    I like KMP04 The Peace Book very much, it’s simple and visually very attractive.
    I vote for KMP04 – The Peace Book
    I also like many of the KP videos, all KP product videos maintain the consistency, look and feel for both Chinese and English versions, all 20 videos are simple with clean background.

    Congrats to all the team,well done !

  348. LT Loo on Jan 20, 2014 at 6:35 pm

    I’m quite torn apart between choosing KMP04 “peace”, KMP06 “if not now when” and KMP08 “David Lai’s book combo”.
    The artistic black and white presentation in KMP04 make you think in a deeper level. The weighty message in KMP06 makes one hard to ignore because it reflects the reality of today’s societies’ perceptions.
    While the young, vibrant, funky mood of David will captivate the young’s heart.
    My vote goes to KMP06 on the point of the message that it carried.

  349. lewkwanleng on Jan 20, 2014 at 5:07 pm

    I vote for KP01, the wealth vase. I like all the product videos from the Dharma outlets because:

    1) All the videos are very “clean”, simple and give essential information about the products.
    2) All the videos have same format, for example the endings are the same, and with all the necessary information for people to contact the outlets as well as the online store.

    I like the wealth vase the best because many people don’t know much about the wealth vase, and this video is a good teaser to make people want to find out more 🙂

  350. Alex C.J. Tan on Jan 20, 2014 at 4:49 pm

    My vote goes to KMP06.

    It truly reflects the essence of the book that it’s promoting, that’s getting us to ACT! Delivering the messages creatively and yet subtly.

  351. Karen Gan on Jan 20, 2014 at 4:28 pm

    I vote for KMP08 – David Lai’s book combo. David is cute and funny. The message encourage people to go for their dream.

  352. sarahyap on Jan 20, 2014 at 2:19 pm

    Frankly speaking, I really like many of the videos, not all, but many. But since I can only vote for one… My vote will have to go to David Lai (KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo).

    I really like the personal touch behind the video, it feels as if the author is talking to me and you feel a direct connection with the writer himself, and that makes me feel like reading David’s book right now! Also, it’s a breath of fresh air compared to many other adverts we would see out there. Adverts are no longer infomercials, it’s very important to connect with the audience and customers these days.

    I also really like some of KP’s videos. Their script is good, complete and easy to understand. However, I feel that the videos is something that would convince someone to visit KP if they are undecided about getting the product or not, not when someone do not know anything about the product.

    The KO infomercial is also very good actually. But I must say compared to the others… it’s nothing special.

    • sarahyap on Jan 20, 2014 at 2:22 pm

      The KP video about the Singing Bowl is not good at all.

      The sound of the singing bowl at the middle of the video is a bad idea. Instead of listening to the VO and explanation of the singing bowl, people get distracted listening to the sound.

  353. Wendy Loh on Jan 20, 2014 at 1:35 pm

    Hello! I vote for KMP04 – Peace.

    I like the execution of the script, it’s simplicity and the message that is brought forth.

    Thank you.

  354. Deborah on Jan 20, 2014 at 1:28 pm

    They are all amazing videos but the one that stands out for me is If Not Now when? Love ed- KMP06.
    thanks

  355. Patsy on Jan 20, 2014 at 1:27 pm

    I love all the videos. They are nicely and creatively produced as well as informative. Kudos to all those talented and creative team behind all these videos.

    I will vote for KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo. The video is funny and cute. Very creative! David is a natural and the video truly reflects his personalities.

  356. May Ong on Jan 20, 2014 at 1:23 pm

    I vote for:-

    a. Best Overall Video: KMP01 Lama Tsongkhapa Series

    Reason: Lama Tsongkhapa’s series is applicable to anyone who is non-religious, who wish to seek happiness, be out of depression and learn how to be happy for us and others.

    b. Best Cinematopraphy: KMP04 Peace
    Reason: It is fresh, new, creative and makes me ask the question, What is Peace? I also like the personality of Li Kim.

    c. Best Script: KMP07 The Promise
    Reason: I would want to find out more about this Promise that the monk made, what motivated him and why he had to fulfill all his promises he made in his life, when he can be a model or an actor.

    d. Best in “Making Me Want the Product” Video: KMP10 Enlightenment Series, KMP08 David Lai’s Book and KMP09 Chinese Setrap. (I love all 3 of them).

    Reason: To satisfy my curiosity about what dharma can offer as a subject, to find out more about Enlightenment, the Buddha and his works and David Lai’s “funny side” video and his personality.

    • Pastor Adeline on Jan 20, 2014 at 9:17 pm

      Dear May,

      You can only vote for ONE video and which one will that be please?

      Thank you,
      PAW

      • May Ong on Jan 24, 2014 at 11:26 am

        I am really between my love for either KMP07 The Promise or KMP08 David Lai’s to vote for the BEST Video of all and its sooooooooooooo hard to choose.
        The Promise is about how Tsem Rinpoche has lived his life of over 25 years to benefit others.
        David Lai’s books reveals a close relationship between a student and his teacher and how it benefited him.

        I will vote for KMP07 The Promise instead, although I adore David Lai’s video also.

  357. henry ooi on Jan 20, 2014 at 1:22 pm

    I vote for video KMP 07 ‘The Promise’ because it covers

    Tsem Rinpoche’s aspirations to be a monk, his childhood days, practising guru devotion in keeping His Promise to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, Tsem Rinpoche’s dharma work, activities and teachings. Good choice of quotes in the video including kindness and compassion to animals. I like the script, cinematography and subtle sales pitch (not forcing down one’s throat with “buy, buy, buy.” Background music is catchy, attractive, powerful.

    Thumbs up to the video team. And congrats to all the other video teams who did their best even though they have no prior video making experiences. I must say, every video is well done. Kudos! And thank you!

  358. Terry on Jan 20, 2014 at 11:17 am

    I vote for KMP04 – Peace
    Because simple and nice

  359. Julia Tan on Jan 20, 2014 at 8:19 am

    I vote for KMP04. This is the video that caught my attention a lot with simple yet powerful message. The make up, the script and Li Kim blended so perfectly in this video. It is something different from others. It touches my heart hence I think it will touch many people’s heart out there who is thirst for peace.
    I like other videos too, especially David’s. He’s cute and it shows his effort to make himself a writer and he made it. Thank you everyone for producing so many wonderful videos! I am sure these videos will bring benefits to the people out there and bring them forward to Kechara.

  360. Gim Lee on Jan 20, 2014 at 5:33 am

    I vote for KMP06 – If Not Now, When? Love Edition

    The message is simple but clear. It touches on different stages of one’s life. Very creative and meaningful.

    I quite like KO01, KMP04 Peace and KMP08 David Lai’s combo but sorry can only vote ONE…

    Thank you.

  361. Steve D on Jan 20, 2014 at 4:27 am

    well..it was hard to choose you are all so good! but I guess one must win :0

    So I choose KNP08 David Lai!

    well done and keep writing!

  362. Chandra on Jan 20, 2014 at 4:25 am

    Hello.

    I would like to vote for KMP 08 of David Lai’s book series. I liked the whole concept of the video. It was a fun, personalised and cleverly done snippet. David brought it alive with his participation too. And I liked the message about going for our dreams in the end 🙂 Good luck David and well done to all other participants.

  363. Ruby Khong on Jan 20, 2014 at 3:02 am

    Kechara is filled with talented , creative, genuine and hard working people. This is clearly shown through all these videos. Almost 90% of these video production is in-house including talent, script, editing, video, concept, etc etc. I am in awe at such good work our own people can produce. To all the teams, well done. I watched the videos several times and enjoyed it each time as though it is the first time I am watching it. I know alot of work and thought has been put in to all of them and I am sure all voters are wishing that they can vote more than one video.

    I will have to vote David’s video in KMP08. The talent is natural, the editing was very good and the same goes for concept and script. It is catchy and holds viewer’s attention. For younger viewers, it will draw them to get the book to read as it looks interesting and funny at the same time, while the older viewers would want to explore the book because they would think what is this all about with this young funny man who has other secular options yet chose this spiritual path. Hopefully the message would hit home with many who thinks that spirituality is for the aged and retired.

    I congratulate everyone who has participated in the production of these videos. It is not so much about who the eventual winner is. Everyone of you is a winner as your video has and will be seen by thousands to give them a better insight of what Kechara has to offer.

    • David Lai on Jan 22, 2014 at 1:37 am

      Dear Dato Ruby,
      We do have wonderful talented people in our organisation, don’t we? Kechara is a unique organization like no other as it attracts people of all ages. Something unique for a spiritual organisation and also much to do with Rinpoche’s appeal that goes across the board. Anyway, thank you for your vote of confidence. I love what you wrote about Kechara’s incredible talent.

  364. Pastor Jean Ai on Jan 20, 2014 at 2:58 am

    I like so many of the videos, like the Setrap one. Even though I don’t understand a single word, I can really see its appeal for the relevant market.

    Ultimately, my choice is David’s video. Why? Because it was totally David. It was endearing, creative, different, funny and awkward, all of the things that David is. It explained perfectly his insecurity with writing, his faith in Rinpoche and the reason why he did the book. It’s the same characteristics that can be found in his book so just by viewing the video, readers (viewers?) already get a sense of what David is like.

    Well done guys! All of the videos were great but sorry, I liked the whole “grab book from all directions” scene just too much!

    • David Lai on Jan 22, 2014 at 1:30 am

      Thank you Pastor Jean Ai. That was very perceptive of you. I started writing the script with that in mind. Actually, it was your sister, Jean Mei who suggested that the advert should be about me, which I protested initially as I really didn’t want to go on screen. My initial idea was to have another person on screen to read my book and be inspired. Jean Mei didn’t like that idea too much as it was kinda passe. So I switched to this and came across a funny Youtube video about being a writer. Some of the visuals cues were inspired by this video. Anyway, it was a fun experience and glad it came out not too bad although I really cringed when I first saw it. I hated it on second view and then I had to watch myself a few times because I finally decided that I was funny. I know… Narcism kicking in a bit.

  365. Karen Chong on Jan 20, 2014 at 2:18 am

    Hola! Can i emanate myself into 4 Karens and vote? hehehe..ok i know i’m retarded. Well, before i vote, I must congratulate for the great work you guys have produced in such short timeline. From knowing nothing about script writing, directing, editing and on top of that you fund raised for this project, you guys did it. I guess the spirit of team work has brought you fulfilling results. Keep up the good work!

    I would go for KMP08 – David Lai’s book combo. There are many books sold on the inspirational shelves at bookstores, however, David, the author himself is genuinely inspiring simply because of his guru devotion. The trust in his Guru that has made him succeed. What he wrote in his books are convincing.

  366. William on Jan 20, 2014 at 1:27 am

    I vote for video KMP06 – If Not Now, When? Love Edition. Simply because the video is creative and gets to the heart of the viewer of getting out of their fear and do something bigger than self. And it does make me want to go and get the book as it makes me curious of what the quotes are.

  367. joy on Jan 20, 2014 at 12:42 am

    Geeezzz I really WISH I HAD MORE THAN ONE VOTE!!! Cos I am really proud of all the videos produced here. But I must admit I am terribly proud of my team who had no clue of production but we bend together to produce 11 crazy videos in a month. I remembered Miss Han who is an expert in this field laughing at me saying “Hello people produce 1 video in one month and you wanna do 11?” Hahaha well Miss Han I guess we did it!

    I love so many of the videos we produced… Peace, 108 Apples, If Not Now When and David’s are my favourites… but if I had to choose one… I would CHOOSE DAVID’s – KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo.

    Why because the script was genuine, sincere, we were not trying hard to blow David out of proportion but used his REAL FUNNY SIDE and TRUE STORY of a boy who didn’t think much of himself but he did it, he became an author because HIS GURU said so and even if he doubted himself, he trusted his GURU and literally just plunge in to writing! Now we all know David and how he has a fountain of Dharma knowledge, that’s cos he is literally like a sponge absorbing all the Dharma tales and lessons he could from Rinpoche and he amazingly is one of the few people I know, who has a great memory in remembering all these stories or teachings Rinpoche shared with him during many countless wee nights and mornings! He is a fabulous Dharma brother and I am glad we captured the essence of David the author you’d least expect writing so many Dharma books! His journey can inspire so many and give others just like him “HOPE”.

    So yeah this is why I like DAVID’s video. Oh it was also the hardest and most tedious video we did amongst all 11. Yes many TAKES and luckily no pouting!!!! Bravo David!

    • Karen Chong on Jan 20, 2014 at 1:08 am

      Yes i agreed with you Joy. You guys worked so hard for these 11 videos and gosh in just 1 month all videos are complete, how you guys did that? Incredible. All the videos are of high quality and most importantly, creatively done. Congrats!

      • joy on Jan 21, 2014 at 12:42 am

        Haha yes Karen… thanks for being our talent :)We sure did have fun along with the hard work. At the end of every shoot we were so beat, Jean Mei was like telling she never expected shooting a video can be this tiring hehe. That’s right and that’s true and to shoot and create 11 different videos was quite ambitious. It’s not like just cut and paste or same concept, each had it’s own script so each was a different set. Yeah call us crazy haha but I am very proud we did it cos no agency would have done it either. So bravo to Kecharians… it shows nothing is impossible if we put our mind to it and all thanks to our Lama for believing in us and pushing us beyond our own expectations.

        That is the key… our Lama. I guess if Rinpoche says we can, we can 😉

        • David Lai on Jan 22, 2014 at 1:19 am

          Thank you Joy. That was very flattering and I must say that you worked very hard to pull everything together with Jean Mei and rein in on the writers’ creative juices. Thank you both. I love what you did for the recent Promise Poem video. If it was in this competition, it would have won hands down.

  368. Li Kheng on Jan 19, 2014 at 10:42 pm

    I vote for KMP04 – The Peace book. It is catchy visually and the book title addresses the social search for inner peace. The visual illustration communicates the message of the video clearly with the use of colors and facial expression.

    Very creative and unexpected for a book promotion.

  369. Stella C on Jan 19, 2014 at 10:29 pm

    I am impressed with the high level of creativity, vivid presentation of details & info. The ones that most captured my attention are : KP06 – it implied a final remedy towards battling the unseen, KMP02 – its relevant & cross to heart for many city drillers, KMP07 – there is a genuine mask of mystery surrounding the biography of Rinpoche, & last but not least KMP09 – pastor’s conviction in the belief in Setrap.

    • Sharon Saw on Jan 19, 2014 at 10:41 pm

      Hi Stella,

      Great feedback but can you please select ONE video which you would vote as the best? 🙂

    • joy on Jan 21, 2014 at 12:35 am

      Hi Stell, Thank you for your comments, I can understand it must be really tough to pick, but if you had only ONE choice which will it be? Cos we’re only allowed one vote for one video overall 😉

      • Stella on Jan 27, 2014 at 11:30 am

        Sorry Sharon / Joy, I was away and just came back hence the delay in responding. Indeed it is so tough to choose the best ones, I have so many person favorites. However, if we can aiming to create awareness for Rinpoche’s teaching, I would prefer KMP07 as it has a powerful message & spoke person that triggers emotions in commoners as well as a call to action – servicing the people.

  370. kb thapa on Jan 19, 2014 at 9:56 pm

    David david he was very funny and interseting. i vote for KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo video… i hope david will win he he he

  371. Alice Tay on Jan 19, 2014 at 9:11 pm

    其实我心目中有两个选择,就是KMP02-Peace 和KO02-Chinese。。。

    KMP02, 简单但创意,可以深入民心。。。

    不过,终究只能选一个。。我唯有选择KO02-Chinese 是比较完整与资料充足,不过如果可以控制时间的话,那就更棒了。。。

    • Alice Tay on Jan 19, 2014 at 9:35 pm

      Sorry for typo error, should be KMP04-Peace instead of KMP02.

  372. Linda Hoo on Jan 19, 2014 at 8:29 pm

  373. Sharon Saw on Jan 19, 2014 at 8:29 pm

    My vote is for KMP04 because it is very creative in its concept, script and execution. Li Kim delivers the message well and i think that it would make someone curious about the Peace book!

    Honorable mention to David for his cute video too 😀

    • David Lai on Jan 22, 2014 at 1:52 am

      Thanks Sharon for the mention and nice voice over for some of the videos. I loved the Promise poem video. Wendy is really a talented poet and you have a really pleasant voice. I think mine had the worse voice over because well, they had no choice because it was about me. When Joy recorded my voice, they had to do so many takes because I was quite bad.

  374. David Lai on Jan 19, 2014 at 7:56 pm

    I will be a bit shameless and vote for my own video ~ KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo 😉

    • Girlie OOI on Jan 22, 2014 at 3:47 pm

      Hi David
      I just watched your video … yes, you are funny.
      No, it’s not shameless to vote for your own video – shall I disregard your vote from the count?
      By the way, this video is topping the list, as at last count.

    I’d like to vote for KMP08 – David Lai’s Book Combo video because it’s quite funny and interesting and I wish to get his book to read after watching.

    Thank you
    Wendy from Philippines

    Pets have come to mean so much in our lives. They gave and teach us unconditional love. Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most their time waiting for us to come home each day. Sad to look at the pictures of this pet named as ( 109) before and after. A vast difference which clearly show how badly abused she was treated while in the mill for 6.5 years. Could not imagined that poor mother pet ( 109) had not been bathed, nails and hair not cut a long, long time. The puppy mill than sell all her pups online and at pet stores for a few thousand dollars. One lucky day 109 and few others were rescued and taken care by a kind owner.
    Do hope more people will be aware of any puppy mills abusing pets and get it reported. Hopefully more pets will be rescues then .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Truly touching and heart warming of a homeless man having a big dream. Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho was homeless living in makeshift shelter in São Paulo, Brazil. Day after day, he never loose hope continue writing poetry from the same spot where he stays for nearly 35 years. Many locals just passed him and ignoring him until a kind soul Shalla Monteiro befriended him and learned of his big dreams over decades. Raimundo always wanted to publish a book of his poems and his impossible dream came through after meeting Shalla Monteiro. From then on everything changed , He is then reunited with his family after decades apart.
    In life never loose hope, never give up in whatever we pursue . All our dreams will come true if we have the courage, determination to pursue them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    To Sum It Up

    So much evidence in this post of the Tibetan Leaders’ atrocities against Dorje Shugden practitioners. Pride and ego that made Dorje Shugden into a scapegoat for their failures. Find out more : https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/to-sum-it-up.html

    Yes, I do agree. Such a beautiful sprawling monastery that many enlightened activities had taken place and a good place for pilgrims to visit. Read more and plan your next holiday to be a spiritual one rather than one that deepens your self-gratification

    Why Hide and Attack A Monk?

    With the internet being the norm of society now, I still don’t understand why do people feel they have a right to attack another when they don’t really fully understand the situation or how the other is like. I mean, hiding behind the computer and thinking they are invincible or unreachable so it gives them the rights to be nasty or crude or abusive? The computer has given them the power to be mired deeper in their negativities? See how they even attack a pure monk who stands for the rights of people are without voice due to their fear reprisals.

    When Tsem Rinpoche was young, he liked to go to Turkey Swamp lake with his childhood friend Marc. He would sit by the lake and meditate on Chenrezig while chanting his mantra. At a young age of 11-12, Tsem Rinpoche already knew how to do the visualisation.

    While you are enjoying the meat on your plate, have you ever wondered how did it end up on your plate? The reality is, the animals are kept in a very bad condition and they suffer tremendously since birth. There is so much fear in them right before they are sent for slaughter. The meat you are eating is a result of suffering. Why put so much toxic in our body when are already living in a very polluted environment?

    If you ever visit Lhasa in Tibet, do you know where to go? Apart from visiting the famous Sera, Drepung and Gaden Monastery, you must visit Trode Khangsar. Trode Khangsar is a chapel built by the 5th Dalai Lama dedicated to Dorje Shugden. Many people especially high lamas come here to pay homage to Dorje Shugden.

    This is the first time reading and hearing about Buddha Vajraraksha. Thank you Rinpoche for introducing this practise and I find it fascinating that the practise help us to curb laziness. All Buddha and Bodhisattvas are so kind to manifest in so many forms to help us with our various delusions.

    It is so touching reading this article. Pak Mie and wife are so compassionate and kind. They sacrifice their comfort, time and money to live and take care of all the rescued stray dogs and cats. At their age, many would have retired and living in a comfort house but they chose to stay in the car and live together with the 500 dogs and cats. I hope more people and government agency will come forward to offer them help. I hope the authority will not ask them to leave the land but support their good deeds instead. They are not harming anyone but taking great care of animals that nobody want.

    Incredible and inspiring lady …..Jill Redwood a Australian environmental activist and writer born in Melbourne. It was injustice and cruelty to animals that motivated her to have a interest in the environment. She has been living ‘off the grid’ in a home she built herself made entirely out of reused and recycled materials. she eats only the food she’s grown and she took cares of over animals that keep her company. Wow …amazing Jill generates all of her own solar power and collects water from the local creek, she lives completely self-sufficient.
    Jill lived there with her dogs for three years, where she built up her skills in self-sufficiency. This self-reliant approach to life has been Jill became an active environmentalist. For over 30 years , she has devoted her life to saving the local forests and environment more generally.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Freda Bedi was a British woman who broke all the rules of gender, race, and religious background to become the first Western woman to take ordination in Tibetan Buddhism. A fascinating short biography of Freda Bedi who had a big heart and a big life. She was a head prefect and Oxford graduate, a devoted Indian wife and doting mother of three. She was well known as a investigative journalist, a university teacher and Tibetan translator, an extraordinary pioneer in the dialogue between Tibetan Buddhism and the western world. She had a very close relationship to His Holiness 16th Karmapa which enable her to have a lasting impact on the Tibetan refugees. She has dedicated her whole life to the well-being of others, in social work and in spreading Buddhism to the westerners and as well as helping those refuges living in India .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this beautiful sharing.

    If we want to be a real Buddhist practitioner, we must find all excuse and method to improve our minds, habits and thinking. We must have some changes if we really are practicing. Don’t complain if we fail to change, we should find another method to make ourselves successful. We complain because we refuse to change and we want to look for sympathies to justify our failure to change. We have to remember, the result of Dharma practice is a happy mind. The process of changing might be difficult but once we overcome it, we will feel lighter and happier.

    Who am I? Is the ‘me’ in the morning the same ‘me’ in the evening? The ‘me’ will not be the same in the morning and evening because we grow older, our thinking has changed due to we have experienced. However, the ‘me’ will remain the same when we have achieved enlightenment.

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.

The Chair-I have one chair I usually sit on to do my sadhana, watch a program, read, write, research and so one. But many times I return from my bathroom, Oser girl has taken over my chair. She gives me this look like, it\'s her chair! She\'s a spunky little schnauzer. The room has so much space, other sofas and places of interest, but my Oser has to hijack my chair always. I have to gently move her over and squeeze in next to her like I did last night into the same chair. We sat together for hours and she fell asleep in my chair huddled against me. Love is sharing a chair even though it\'s meant for one occupant at a time. :)  Tsem Rinpoche

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them. They would grow up knowing that chasing materialism is not going to bring any happiness. I hope very much more schools like this would materialise. I hope in my future life I can attend a school like this. Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    1 years 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

The generous support from Tesco Malaysia and AEON Retail Malaysia have made it possible for us to continue with this contribution to those less fortunate.
