A weekend in the North

It was an exciting past weekend when Kechara Media & Publications (KMP) Liaisons Sharon Saw and Jamie Khoo headed up north to Penang to present two book clubs at Kechara Paradise Penang.

With Sharon presenting the new Tsongkhapa box set on Friday evening and Jamie giving a sharing on His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche’s new book, Snakes, Roosters and Pigs, it was an action-packed weekend with great get-togethers between Kechara representatives from KL and our Penangite friends.

The book clubs were run a little differently this time in Penang. Instead of just doing a book reading and sharing, Sharon also led the whole group through a short but beautiful Guru Yoga puja, proving to everyone how simple this powerful practice can be. Then, on Saturday, after giving everyone a brief overview of the Snakes book, Jamie also played excerpts from the DVD that is attached with the book. This introduced new friends to Rinpoche’s animated, dynamic teaching style and gave them a clearer idea of the teachings within the book.

Kechara Discovery (KD) also came up to Penang and joined the action at our Saturday book club with their large and beautiful array of pendants.

Both KD and KMP had the chance to meet many new friends and faces in KP Penang, and also saw how much the small group up north have grown in the last year. Some of the Penang group have also been coming down to KL regularly to join in our activities, marking greater exchange between the diverse groups around the country.
