  • A lot of new people who first visit Kechara or
    just heard about Kechara get quite confused about
    how many departments there areor where they can
    contribute and volunteer! hehe There are 13
    departments in Kechara Organizationall of them
    are extensions of my interests and I have seen
    them open and grow over the past few years. A few
    of my students have written a very good summary
    of what each departments do, why they exist and
    have added a few relevant photos.. Have fun
    reading them!!

Kechara Discovery Department
  • H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has loved the Buddha since he
    was a child living in New Jersey, USA. He would
    draw little paper Buddha pendants and photocopy
    rare Buddha pictures that he found in books to
    give away to people. Though no one had ever
    taught it to him, he had always believed that an
    image of a Buddha would bless and protect people.
    This passion lives on in Rinpoche until today and
    was the main reason that Kechara Discovery was
    conceptualised in 2008 to make Buddha images
    accessible and plentiful for people everywhere,
    especially for their spiritual practice.

4
  • One of the main functions of Kechara Discovery
    within the organisation is to source for new
    Buddha statues and create a range of Buddha
    pendants based on Rinpoches designs. Liaison
    Paul Yap was selected to head this department and
    his hard work is well paying off now the things
    he has achieved are just spectacular! Since its
    inception, Kechara Discovery has managed to
    source for many of the statues and create various
    exquisite ranges of pendants that Kechara
    Paradise carries now.

  • KDs largest and most recent project has been in
    creating the central Buddha statues for Kechara
    Houses new gompa. This is no small feat, we can
    assure you! Paul has to travel abroad every other
    week to personally oversee the construction of
    these statues and advise the manufacturers on
    correct iconography and details. But with plenty
    of creative energy and a great eye for detail,
    there couldnt be any more perfect a person for
    the job!

  • The central images in Tsem Ladrang the
    heartbeat of the Kechara organization were also
    created by Kechara Discovery. For example, the
    statue of Rinpoches previous life which sits in
    the grand hall and Rinpoches personal
    Vajrayogini statue in his room were all the
    result of KDs incredible hard work. What
    fantastic and huge merit they must be creating!

  • While Rinpoche was growing up in America, and
    later when he was living in the monastery in
    India, such delightful statues and pendants would
    have only been a dream. Although he would very
    much have liked to give away pendants and
    statues, funds were very limited. Now, with the
    creation of so many beautiful statues in varying
    sizes, portable tsa tsas and pendants, Rinpoche
    is much closer to fulfilling a wish to make
    Buddha images available to everyone, no matter
    what their budget or style preferences may be.
    Ultimately, these images are to inspire people in
    their practice and form a central focus for their
    daily prayers and contemplations.

9
  • As well as introducing people to many Buddha
    images, Rinpoche has also taken many students and
    friends on pilgrimages to numerous spiritual
    power places in Bodhgaya, Gaden Monastery in
    South India, Nepal and even within our sacred
    Kechara organisation in Kuala Lumpur. Rinpoche
    takes his students to these places so that they
    can be blessed by the energy of enlightened
    Beings to further their spiritual practice,
    attainments and work, and to plant innumerable
    spiritual seeds within their minds. Click here
    for more information on the benefits of going on
    pilgrimage. Rinpoche has also blogged about these
    various sites, such as the Mahabodhi Temple in
    Bodhgaya, Naropas cave in Kathmanu, Nepal and
    Jokhang Temple in Lhasa, Tibet.

  • Rinpoches dream to help many people to connect
    to these sacred places is also being realised by
    KD. Now, a second part of their portfolio is to
    make arrangements for such pilgrimages. All the
    logistics and tour details, as well as
    explanations, specific prayers and meditations to
    be performed at these specific locations are all
    handled by KD so you can be assured of a most
    spectacular trip. Many of the locations of these
    sacred power places are rare and off the beaten
    track, but KD make sure we can get to them,
    offering us a much more exclusive and insightful
    spiritual experience.

  • Moving forward, this young and dynamic team of
    five now have bigger plans to bring their
    pendants and Buddha statues to the world. The
    small but vibrant department is also working on a
    showroom that will showcase many of their unique
    masterpieces. This showroom will introduce the
    art of Buddha statues to the masses, so that they
    can also be appreciated and welcomed into the
    homes of non-Buddhists.

13
  • Paul the head of department says, I plan to
    expand Kechara Discovery into a showroom to
    highlight various concepts of home décor and to
    make the concept having a Buddha statue a very
    attractive and viable proposition. On top of
    that, Kechara Discovery will have a lot of work
    in the future sourcing and producing the large
    statues for Kechara World Peace Center. We have a
    lot of work ahead and its all going to be very
    exciting!
