On 26 July 2012, Kechara launched The Promise, an epic biography of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, a Mongolian-Tibetan prince at birth and his aspiration to be a monk. The launching was reported by Malaysian local television network, NTV7 the same day.
The news quoted Tsem Rinpoche as:
A Mongolian-born Buddhist monk who inspired many Buddhists in the country” and Spiritual Advisor of Kechara who wishes to benefit Malaysian people.
Rinpoche was quoted as saying,
This book tells you who I am, what I am, where I came from and what my background is. If you can understand me better, perhaps we can talk about my project in future and what I would like to do to contribute back to the beautiful Malaysia…”
The Promise tells the most unusual, extraordinary life story of Tsem Rinpoche, a radiant Buddhist teacher who literally traversed continents and lifetimes to fulfil a lifelong commitment to the world. The author of The Promise is Sharon Saw and Jamie Khoo, and available in all major book stores.
