2 June 2013 - 10:04pm Comments Off

On the 1st of June, Kechara Oasis in Viva Home Mall hosted a fundraising dinner for the Kechara Forest Retreat. Well attended by 200 guests, 95% of those who came were completely new to Kechara and wanted to learn more about Kechara, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche and his various works.

The emcee for the evening was James Long, who took the time to introduce a short biography of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, how Kechara began and its various departments to the attentive audience amid a fantastic 8 course banquet style vegetarian dinner prepared by staff at Kechara Oasis. Guests were also given the opportunity to purchase the new box set of His Eminence’s new DVD series “The Journey”, which is a compilation of over 20 years of teachings, recorded on video.

Organised by a dedicated team of volunteers, the dinner highlights what can be achieved to realise a worthy goal such as the completion of Kechara Forest Retreat. Conceptualised by His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, Kechara Forest Retreat, located in the mountains of Bentong, will be a place away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The centre will focus on the total wellness of body and mind through retreats, learning and conscious living within a natural forest enclave.

We thank all the organisers, guests and Kechara Oasis for making this event a success and showing your support for Kechara Forest Retreat in contributing to the ongoing construction, which will be able to benefit many in the future.
