Kechara House 1st Pastor Ordination

Now I myself am not a Buddhist but I'm always fascinated and willing to find out about other religions. End of last month, I got the opportunity to attend this rather spiritual gathering over at Kechara House at Sunwaymas PJ courtesy of Nuffnang. It was a celebration of H. E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche’s 46th Birthday as well as to witness Kechara Pastor Ordination. More explanation on all these can be found further down this post.

The crowd that arrived that evening to see the ordination of 4 buddhist pastors
So there we were at 7pm arriving at Kechara House in PJ all ready to experience the four Kechara pastor ordinations. The crowd that arrived that evening was huge, people of all ages throng in the doors of Kechara House to witness this event, a first if its type for Kechara House. There was a simple vegetarian bee hoon meal served for us, which I appreciate because it was dinner time after all.

Coming back to event, that day itself was Tsem Tulku Rinpoche's 46th birthday, and it was also partially a celebration for him on top of the pastors ordination. Extracted from his blog at , check out below on a short biography of the man himself. 

"My father is a ex-monk from Tibet. My mother is Princess Dewa from Xinjiang who is a direct line from Genghis Khan. I was born in Taiwan, grew up in the States and returned to Gaden in India in 1987. Had the great honour to be ordained by HH Dalai Lama and to meet my root guru HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Now I reside in Malaysia as spiritual advisor to Kechara House and its thirteen departments"

Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, deep in thought
The night was all about Tsem Tulku Rinpoche sharing his teachings to the crowd that were present, which was really interesting and enlightening in my opinion. He gave a brief sharing about the Dharma teachings as well as his life stories. At the end of the night we saw four new pastors being ordinated into the Kechara House, and I left feeling contented with slightly more knowledge on what Dharma teaching is all about.
