Creating Conscious Communities
Consciousness is respect for all paths so we live in harmony together.
Consciousness is valuing all life because we are dependent on each other.
Consciousness is embracing diversity so that we can enrich each other.
Consciousness is helping others because they are more important than ourselves.
Consciousness is upholding universal values for the betterment of society.
Consciousness is awakening our great spiritual potential, to live with passion, joy and purpose.
Consciousness is Kechara, where we live by this philosophy.
Kechara is a progressive spiritual organisation that seeks to create a conscious community that comes together in service of others.
Established in 2000, Kechara began in a small shop lot, with a small handful of spiritual practitioners who were motivated solely by the wish to make a difference and bring a new message of peace to their community.
From its humble beginnings as a single retail outlet, Kechara has evolved to meet the varying needs, interests and aptitudes of the modern spiritual seeker, and now includes a dharma center, puja house, soup kitchen, publishing house, comprehensive education programmes, art studio, film production house, online dharma store, and vegetarian restaurants, among many other initiatives.
Kechara’s spiritual community comprises of people from diverse backgrounds, different age groups and different parts of the world.
At Kechara, we know how busy you are and we emphasise practical ways in which you can integrate Buddhist principles into your life to find your own inner strength and peace. Through our programmes, you can truly transform your life, fulfill your potential, and discover for yourself and others a limitless capacity for love, peace and happiness.
Love yourself through others. ~ Tsem Rinpoche
