Pastor Henry Ooi


Director of Kechara Forest Retreat

I have been a Director to H.E. since 18 December 2005 and a student of H.E. for over ten years, learning and practising Dharma. The pre-requisites of a Director to H.E. require one to possess the correct attitude to serve others, honesty, integrity, be hard-working and never give up, and most of all to be faithful to H.E., the unbroken lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa and to our Kechara organisation.

I have received many Dharma teachings, gifts, moral, emotional and financial support from H.E. over the years and am still receiving the same now. All these led me to commit as a Director to further my Dharma practice, and to assist H.E. in Dharma work to benefit more people.
