Liaison of Kechara Media & Publications
I was introduced to the Kechara Organisation in 2007 by Liaison Kok Yee Yee who is an old friend of mine. Her transformation of attitude after joining Kechara made me curious about this organisation.
After reading “Be Greedy”, the first Chinese book published by Kechara Media & Publications, my curiosity increased even more as I’ve never read a Dharma book that delivers Dharma knowledge in such a logical and easy to understand way.
H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings made an impact in my mind even though I used to be sarcastic about spirituality and religious beliefs.
In 2008, when Liaison Yek Yee wanted me to help in some translation work for Rinpoche’s Dharma teaching “23 hours”, I immediately agreed. I wanted to find out more about Rinpoche’s teachings, but not because I started to like Him. In fact, I actually wanted to find a mistake in Rinpoche’s teachings so that I could continue convincing myself that all religions just existed to provide those in need with some psychological counseling with some superstitious elements. My attempt failed.
To cut the story short, the more I learned about Rinpoche’s teachings, the more I realised that my old belief was wrong. Buddhism is not something superstitious but a true way of living. Dharma is life and it’s very logical. So I started to work as a part-time translator in Kechara Media & Publications in 2009 then decided to become a full time Dharma worker the next year.
I have never regretted my decision to join Dharma full time. The truth is that I’m much happier and more settled now. This is what I can never get from working in the secular world.
- Translator & Editor, Kechara Media & Publications
- Chief Editor, Chinese Translation Team
I graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) from Jinan University, China. Before joining Kechara Media & Publications as a full time translator, I was a lecturer at a local traditional Chinese medicine college where I taught subjects from western medicine to future TCM to doctors so that they can combine both western and eastern diagnostic methods in order to meet modern society’s needs.
