At Kechara Saraswati Arts (KSA), we always rejoice when people come in to help. There are many wonderful ways to get involved in our work, to learn about spiritual practice, the arts and crafts itself, and in turn benefit both our mission and sentient beings.
Many people from all walks of life come to volunteer with Kechara Saraswati Arts because it is their way of contributing to the Dharma via their artistic talents.
The majority of our volunteers come on a regular basis, and contribute through the giving of their time and talent. The benefits of volunteering and donating to spirituality through arts are enormous, for example:
Painting of Buddha Images
With the correct motivation, this act purifies one’s negative karma associated with the body, removes obstacles in one’s path and generates long life and good health. Buddha statues are the physical representation of enlightened Beings whose qualities include love, wisdom and compassion. With every prayer, prostration and offering made to these images, oceans of merit are accumulated by those involved in the creation or painting of these holy images
Rolling Mantras and Consecrating Statues
This act creates the causes for wisdom to increase, purifies the negative karma of speech, helps the practitioner to gain respect and a gracious appearance, and creates the causes for wealth and prosperity to increase.
Decorating Buddha Statues
Through the act of decorating a holy statue with precious stones, we create the causes to gain the six paramitas, namely Generosity, Morality, Patience, Joyous Effort, Meditation and Wisdom.
Cultivate your own passion and interest in the Himalayan arts! Many join KSA to acquire and develop skills as a personal hobby, by attending special workshops or classes.
Kechara Saraswati Arts is a non-profit entity and we welcome your contribution. All donations and proceeds will be directed towards improving our facilities and services to bring you spirituality through art.
So, whatever reason you may have for walking through the doors of KSA, you will undoubtedly discover a deeper meaning in your experience when you join us over time.
This is spirituality awakening through arts and craft. This is enlightenment at the stroke of a brush.
