Kechara Saraswati Arts (KSA) was established to express our spirituality and bring Dharma to others through art, and is the brainchild of our Spiritual Guide, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche.

Rinpoche has always had a deep interest in Buddha images with the correct iconography, because they carry deeper meanings and aid higher learning. Regardless of whether it is to be worshipped or to become an ornamental conversation piece, Rinpoche firmly believes that everyone deserves to own a stunning spiritual item that will not only beautify their homes but will also bring immense blessings to their families and environment.

There is no doubt that Himalayan arts has carved its own space all around the world. Its distinctive beauty and artistry in portraying spirituality transcend time and place. It is no wonder that people all over the world easily fall in love with its sublime elegance. It is said that by merely viewing a Buddha image, one may find solace and peace.

Like the teachings they embody, Himalayan works of art are adaptable through the ages and using a combination of modern materials and traditional techniques, Kechara Saraswati Arts (KSA) helps you to do just that.

As the very first Himalayan arts studio in South East Asia, KSA resides in the heart of Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. From here, we can turn the possibilities from your imagination into reality.

Our studio means you do not need to visit Nepal, Tibet or India to personalise your Buddha statues according to your style or taste. Through years of training with craftsmen who make art their daily living practice, our artisans can restore your statue, teach you to paint a thangka, fill your statues with holy mantras, or introduce you to the intricate art of beadwork and jewellery adornment.

When your search for the perfect statue or thangka is over, bring it to KSA to be adorned. Let us uncover for you the deeper meanings of artistic expressions of spirituality.


Through every single piece of art that we create, may we plant the seed of Enlightenment in the minds of whoever comes across us.

H.E. Tsem Rinpoche
