Liaison of Kechara Media & Publications
I was fortunate enough to have met His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche as a friend while I was still going to church in 2003. At that time, I found him to be a remarkable spiritual teacher because he never tried to convert me or ever ask me to be his disciple. I remember one of his first teachings to me was to take what the Buddha taught and apply it into my life and not just believe in it blindly. That statement blew my mind and so it was Rinpoche’s logic and reasoning that converted me.
However, my real faith in Rinpoche didn’t appear overnight as it took years. Rinpoche’s first advice to me was to write because he felt that I had great potential to develop myself in that field. It took me many years while I worked in Kechara Paradise outlets and even in the Ladrang before I found myself in Kechara Media & Publications. Eventually, I decided to just trust Rinpoche and start my Dharma career by writing my very first book. It has been quite a journey for me!
On the other hand, I found that I have a passion for sharing the Dharma with others while I worked in the Kechara Paradise stores. I loved Rinpoche’s teachings and so I would share them with people who came into the stores. I don’t think I affected everybody but I do occasionally receive feedback that what I had shared with them was beneficial. Hence, I try to absorb as much Dharma teachings as I can through Rinpoche’s teachings, Manjushri class and other activities so I can share it with those whom I meet.
I am honoured to be able to serve Rinpoche with my appointment as Liaison. It gives me a golden opportunity to return the kindness of my parents and Rinpoche through my work as a liaison. At the same time, I feel that I am finally able to make something of myself and be a part of a thriving and beneficial organisation that I affectionately call “KH”. Therefore, I dedicate my liaisonship and all that I will do with it to my loving parents.
