A very wise birthday

Sean Wang presenting a cheque to KMP's CEO Phng Li Kim

Kechara Media & Publications’ (KMP) youngest sponsor, Sean Wang, who has been regularly contributing RM10 a month to KMP recently turned 13 on 4 December 2010.

Instead of putting out a big wish-list for his birthday, he decided to ask guests at his birthday dinner (at Kechara Oasis of course!) to contribute donations to KMP! He told them all explicitly that he did not want any presents.

When asked why he wanted to do that, he said, “I am donating to KMP so that Rinpoche’s teachings may spread further, so that Lama Tsongkhapa’s lineage will be spread and people will have a chance to become enlightened.” What an extraordinary wish for the newly-turned teenager! We hope he knows that by doing this, he receives many, many more happy returns that are far more rewarding than just asking for yet another game, toy or video.

Thank you Sean! May your generous offering go far to make many people as happy as how you make the people around you.

  1. Sean is very sweet, he is so generous that he put us adults to shame! I am really humbled to have him around. Whenever he comes to KMP, he will never fail to ask if there is anything he can do to help us or if he can offer us a drink. He also writes well, just like his ma ma, Sharon! Thank you very much, Sharon for ‘lending’ us Sean whenever we need him, and to Sean, for always being there!
