E-Division brings the teachings of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche to the world through various online channels. We are currently looking to expand and renovate our offices, to increase our productivity and spread Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition even further, and we need your donations in order to make this possible!

At e-Division, we are responsible for promoting Rinpoche and Kechara’s online presence. This includes the development and maintenance of the Kechara and Tsem Rinpoche websites, Facebook, Twitter, Rinpoche’s YouTube channel, and much, much more. We produce all of our work in both English and Chinese (translating our material into other languages like French also!). We deal with a wide range of technical work across the whole of Kechara, as well as constantly looking to develop new ways in which to positively engage people in the Dharma.

Our work has led to our description as a one thousand-armed Chenrezig. From our base, we reach out to help thousands of people by spreading the teachings of the Buddha through Rinpoche, which has brought so much personal benefit into the lives of others and their loved ones.

There is a monumental effort and a lot hard work that goes into the promotion of Kechara. As you can see, it is solely for the endeavour of bringing inner peace and well-being to people who benefit greatly from developing their spiritual practice in the Dharma.

We want to carry on this work, and we want to reach as many people as possible by helping them in any way we can. Everyone deserves to be happy, and everyone deserves to be free from suffering. This is what Rinpoche strives to bring to people each and every day, and it is through the e-Division that he is able to reach millions of people from all over the world.

Our office renovations will leave us better equipped to spread further Rinpoche’s teachings to more people, and we can only achieve this through your kind and generous donations. It is through your donations that we will be able to make the changes necessary to best develop the work that we’ve been doing. It is because of what you give to us that we will be able to increase our productivity by producing more and more material for people to access. It will be thanks to you that Rinpoche’s teachings will be able to spread further to many people across the world.

By giving to help others, you bless yourself as a result. By giving to help others, you create the causes for people to find happiness and a deep sense of well-being. Within yourself, you will immediately feel the advantages of giving to benefit others. In helping others, you automatically help yourself by giving yourself the gift of providing happiness for others through the choices you make – there is an absolute truth in the saying, “it is in the giving that we receive.”

Contractors have been hard at work renovating the office

Below is the wish list for our new office. With these renovations, the e-Division will be starting from scratch – we have never had our own premises and therefore do not own any of our own furniture or equipment. We are grateful for any donation we receive. You can provide us with a one-off donation, or you can continue to help us carry on our work through regular monthly contributions. We do rely on the kind donations we receive from people, and we greatly appreciate the thoughtfulness of anyone who contributes to such a worthwhile cause. We ask you to donate whatever you can to e-Division, in order that we can go on spreading the Dharma all over the world through the inspirational teachings of Tsem Rinpoche, bringing great benefits to many people.

Please contact Beng Kooi (bengkooi@tsemladrang.com) to make a contribution or donate directly via PayPal.
