As a counsellor, I attended many courses and noticed that many things they talked about were in Dharma itself and that, in fact, Dharma was more authoritative on the subject.

How were you introduced to Kechara and what attracted you to Kechara?

I was having lunch in the SunwayMas area with Tan Gim Lee when she noticed the Kechara House (KH) sign. We went to check it out and my first impression was that KH has a very clean, clear environment. We also met Mama Jenny that day and she was so friendly. However, it was H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings which persuaded me to stay at Kechara.


When did you come to know about Buddhism and Dharma? When did you start Dharma?

I came to know about Buddhism during my first year of university and from then on, I began to promote Dharma by helping to do translations so people weak in Chinese or English could still access the teachings.


Why do you do so much for Dharma and what do you like about it?

As a counsellor, I attended many courses and noticed that many things they talked about were on Dharma itself and that, in fact, Dharma was more authoritative on the subject. I would use Dharma knowledge for my clients without letting them know it was Buddhism, and it helped them greatly. I like Dharma because it is very practical.


Did you have any doubts when you first started Dharma, or when you first joined Kechara?

I had doubts about deity practices – I was a bit unsure as to why it was beneficial, etc. Of course, now I love it so much! I didn’t actually have doubts in Dharma itself, I only doubted my ability to do it.


Before coming to Kechara, what were your spiritual inclinations? Did you have any?

I was active in Dharma before Kechara. Sometimes I attended a Mahayana temple, and sometimes a Theravadan one. However, after I graduated, I lost myself and focused on earning money. In the last seven years, I’ve restarted my journey of spiritual self-discovery and I trained to become a counsellor. However, after coming to Kechara, I have realised that there is no course as good as Dharma.
