History in the making at KFR!

Aug 16, 2012 | Views: 384

The KWPC team came up with a great idea to bring people to KFR. This idea is to have fun as well as Dharma and also to have people visit KFR after it was back on track. So, it became a prayer session at KFR, with dinner and a movie thrown in!

It happened last Saturday where throngs of members and friends visited KFR. It was organized by Kechara Members’ Committee headed by Sofi Lim. And it took them only about a week to get it going. A total of 107 people went to KFR on that day.

The bus left Kechara House at 4pm and reached KFR at around 5:30pm. All were very excited to be at KFR. They went on to buy candle and flowers to be offered to Buddha Shakyamuni and the queue to pay homage was so long! But all of them were very patient. There was also a photo opportunity at the iconic tree for those who made offerings.

At 6:45pm, Pastor Susan Lim led the group in a prayer of Migtsema, Setrap’s mantra and finished off with Shantideva’s dedication. After prayers, we all took a group photo.

Then, it was dinnertime catered by Kechara Oasis. Again the queue was long but people were chatting away and having a good time. By that time, the floor space was set up and people were sitting down and having dinner.

At around 8pm, Martin took the floor and thanked Datuk May for convincing Rinpoche to reopen KFR. He also thanked the organizing committee for making this event happen. It really showed the One Kechara spirit. After his speech, everyone was ready to watch the movie titled “The Village”. Lights were turned off and the movie started.

The weather was pleasant and there were no mosquitoes. From the looks of everyone’s faces, everyone enjoyed this evening out. We look forward to the next event at KFR!
