6th Update: 22 April 2012

Today, a few volunteers and the Ladrang team went to properly clean and fix up the temporary abode. The volunteers also planted more trees and plants. In addition, because the abode is on a higher platform, some steps were built leading up to it. This was all through the creativity of Mr. CK Leong (a regular volunteer in Kechara).

We also had a few VIPs visiting us today, Tuan Foo and Tuan Liang from the Special Branch of our Police Force and Mr. Tan You Seng, the Personal Assistant to the Member of Parliament in Bentong.

For about 2 weeks now, Rinpoche has had the idea of nurturing birds in the cages, until they are strong enough to be released. So today, the Ladrang team worked on assembling a few bird cages. As liberating birds (animals) extends the lives of other beings, it creates the causes to extend your life and improve your health.

When all was done, the volunteers were seen tying up prayer flags around the living quarters. They were all so excited to tie them up because not only do the prayer flags make the place look more aesthetically beautiful, they also bless the place.

When we were about to leave during sunset, a miraculous sign appeared. A beautiful and clear rainbow appeared in the sky… and ended at the iconic tree! We were in awe, and a little taken aback, because it had not been raining and the weather was dry. According to Rinpoche, this means that many people will benefit from Kechara Forest Retreat!

Check out the photos!

Mr. Lam digging to make a step leading up the abode. Kecharians can do anything! Mr. Lam and his whole family are in Kechara, including his 2 young boys, Jutika and Pavara. His wife, Choi Sheem, works full time in Kechara Saraswati Arts and he fully supports her work.

What are you peeking at, Bryan? What is there to see out there?

The steps are coming up nicely, with Martin, CK Leong and Mr. Lam.

Can you spot the rainbow? This is the miraculous sign that appeared when we were about to leave. A good omen!

A Slice of Heaven "Sponsor a lot of land in the Kechara Forest Retreat, which will go towards the cost of the land and the facilities being built therein. Your support will help make this meritorious project a reality. Contributing to the building of a monastery or a place of worship is a very meritorious act, as taught by the Buddha and many ancient masters that came before. As the Buddha described the benefits of building monasteries to King Sangyal, he taught that people who build monasteries will always have incredible wealth and power in future lives, and will eventually attain enlightenment. The great Indian yogi, Nagden Pawo also said that anyone who contributes to the building of a Buddhist institution, no matter how small that contribution is, even if it is just requesting others for donations, continuously collects tremendous merits even as they go about their daily lives". https://www.vajrasecrets.com/slice-of-heaven-fund - shared by Pastor Antoinette
