April Pre-loved Sales in KFR

10 April 2016 - 5:06pm Comments Off

Kechara Forest Retreat had its monthly open day last weekend on 9 April (Saturday) together with the most anticipated pre-loved sales! Most came to know about this through our spiritual guide, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche’s blog www.tsemrinpoche.com.

Many are rather new to Kechara and had minimum exposure to Buddhism. However, the modern and contemporary way Rinpoche translates Buddha’s precious teachings has drawn interest in many. Fortunately, with the advanced technology in this era, spreading Dharma to everyone online is much easier and that is the sole purpose of this blog!

Last weekend was a busy day in Kechara Forest Retreat and it was nice seeing many regular Bentong folks, along with their family and friends, visiting the world’s largest Dorje Shugden statue and having the opportunity to invite back some of Rinpoche’s personal items. With these affordable and highly blessed items, many now have the chance to enhance their spiritual path.

Preloved sales will be open every Kechara Forest Retreat Open Day. Don’t miss the next one!

Please contact Karen @ karen.chong@kechara.com if you have any questions.

Wylfred’s friend, Ray, who has been consistently doing Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden prayers came with his friend, Rin Lee for the open day and happily invited some pendants and books back home.

Wylfred’s brother, Meng Hong, is also getting more interested and drawn towards Buddhism, seeing his brother and Ray doing their sadhana/daily prayers consistently at home. Meng Hong has invited a Dorje Shugden pendant and a Lama Tsongkhapa statue to be placed in his office as a form of blessing.

Another familiar face who came was Kechara’s regular electrician named Steven. He brought along his friend who then invited a Lama Tsongkhapa statue, whilst Steven himself invited a Buddha Shakyamuni statue home.

A young boy, Alvin who has loved Buddha statues from a tender age, came with his mother for the open day. Alvin invited a three feet Tsongkhapa statue home. Both of them used to volunteer in Kechara during their free time as well. Rejoice, Alvin!

Jacky Lee, who comes to the open day every month brought a group of Singaporeans. They have just learnt about Kechara about a month ago. Each of them found some items to invite home.

Another customer who came from afar was Brian, who got to know Kechara and the open day through Rinpoche’s YouTube teachings and also Kechara Soup Kitchen where he has been volunteering consistently. He has invited home some Buddha statues as well.

Mrs Chong came all the way from Petaling Jaya to the open day with her whole family. She too, invited a Lama Tsongkhapa on elephant thangka while her kids were very enthusiastic about the Dorje Shugden pendants and immediately went into the shop to have a closer look. Of course, the kind mother bought each of them a pendant of their choice.
