At KH1, Nicholas took the time to teach the group how to do prostrations, giving them the opportunity to make a connection to the Dharma by prostrating to His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche's throne

This week’s Kechara Mini Tour – led by Nicholas Yu of Kechara Care – was attended by newcomers who were introduced to Kechara via some of our 12 departments. Through Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) came Bryan Hew. On the other hand, Ann Lim and her mother, and Indy Wong, were introduced to Kechara from Kechara Paradise (KP) Bangsar.

The tour comprised of visits to Kechara House (KH), Kechara Media & Publications (KMP), Kechara Discovery (KD), Kechara Saraswati Arts (KSA) and KP SS2.

At KMP, CEO Phng Li Kim gave a comprehensive introduction to Kechara’s publications arm. The newcomers were then led to KD’s office where their marketing manager, Louise Lee, explained the function of the department in commissioning statues and pendants. Louise explained that the department also organises pilgrimage tours for Kechara. From there, the newcomers were taken to KSA, the first Tibetan arts studio in South East Asia, as well as our KP outlet in SS2 and then back to where it all began, at Kechara House.

Although it was only a brief tour of some of the many departments in Kechara, the newcomers enjoyed their experience. After the tour, everyone was in agreement that the tour provided a good orientation of the Kechara organisation, aided by the personal insights and guidance from the various staff.
