Local English newspaper, The Star recently published a story on wealth vases and our roadshow in Mid Valley Megamall from January 24 to February 17. The report also mentioned our latest project – the Kechara Forest Retreat.


KECHARA Paradise, an organisation that brings in Tibetan Buddhism arts, culture and teachings, will be having a roadshow on wealth vases. The roadshow will be held from Jan 24 to Feb 17 at Mid Valley Megamall.

“Kechara’s wealth vases, said to attract wealth energy, are hand-made by monks and made according to specific scriptural instructions and not produced for commercial purposes,” said Kechara outlets’ director Henry Ooi.

“They contain precious items such as relics from high Lamas, holy items, precious gems and the five natural elements such as earth, gold and silver.

“Upon completion, a large prayer session is conducted to invoke and seal the energies of the wealth Buddhas within the vases,” he added.

There are four Kechara Paradise outlets in the Klang Valley and one in Penang.

Kechara Paradise aims to bring a different aspect of Asia to the great melting pot of cultures already found here in Malaysia.

Store managers personally source for the best quality items from all over Asia, and select pieces that best suit contemporary Malaysian lifestyle. Products range from Tibetan cabinets to brass statues to carpets and Tibetan thangkas.

Since its inception in 2000, Kechara has grown into a variety of departments offering a multitude of services and activities for the spiritual. This ranges from dharma classes, pujas and education to publications and multimedia teachings, arts, travel and community service.

Currently, the centres are raising funds for the Kechara Forest Retreat centre in Bentong, Pahang. The centre is a unique holistic retreat focused on the total wellness of body, mind and spirit. It is a place where families and individuals will find peace, nourishment and inspiration in a natural forest environment.

“Through this landmark project, Kechara is committed to giving back to society by instilling the next generation with universal positive values such as kindness and compassion,” said Ooi.

During the Chinese New Year promotion period, free gifts worth up to RM1,290 with every purchase are up for grabs while stocks last.

  1. Many people have invited home a Wealth vase and received many good signs. I personally have one on my altar, good for Feng shiok.
