Yong Swee Keong is a Malaysian Multimedia University (MMU) graduate with a highflying career one could only dream of. As an application consultant for a company who are software vendors for banks, his life was fairly comfortable.
His career opened his eyes, bestowing Swee Keong many opportunities to travel around the world. However, he felt that there was more to life than just that, which led him to cross paths with Kechara and His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche.
Beginning with Kechara Soup Kitchen, his volunteering initiatives snowballed as Swee Keong progressed to being a regular puja attendee and volunteer. What made him take the leap to join full-time was when Rinpoche showed signs of serious illness in October 2011. It made him think twice about what was precious in life, and what he should be spending his time doing. He didn’t want to be the one who missed out on working in the Dharma while Rinpoche was alive. Now Swee Keong has joined Kechara as a software engineer.
