This coming October is a very special day for all Kecharians, as on the 24th of this month, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, the founder of Kechara was born.

On this day, Kechara will be organizing various events throughout the day, to celebrate the moment when sentient beings are again given another chance at finding true inner peace and happiness:

EVENT Animal Liberation
TIME 8.30am to 10am
VENUE TTDI Park

***

EVENT Lama Chopa Long Life Prayer, dedicated to Rinpoche
TIME 2pm to 4pm
VENUE Kechara House Gompa

***

EVENT Free Vegetarian Dinner, all are welcome!
TIME 4.30pm to 6.30pm
VENUE Kechara Care Lounge

***

EVENT Pastorship Ordination Ceremony and Refuge Ceremony
TIME 7pm to 10 pm
VENUE Kechara House Gompa

In the evening of his birthday, Rinpoche will (most auspiciously!) confer vows to Kechara’s second group of pastors. The Pastors, founded by our Spiritual Guide are laypeople that take sacred vows, to propitiate the Gaden lineage and serve Kechara. Dressed in lay clothes yet offering Dharma advice, these pastors will bring Dharma to those seeking guidance, but who are too intimidated or reluctant to approach the ordained for advice.

His Eminence has always said that the only reason for him to attend his birthday celebration is if he can benefit others on the occasion. Creating pastors for the sake of making the Dharma more approachable to those in need of Buddha’s wisdom is one such action.

Although the concept of pastorship is relatively new to Buddhism, the vows that Rinpoche bestow on the chosen for this honor is based on an authentic lineage which stems all the way back to Buddha Shakyamuni himself. So do come and celebrate Rinpoche’s birthday with us, and bear witness to this historic occasion!

The posts discussing the nature of lay ordination/pastorship in the Gelug Tradition have been moved to here.

Meditation and conduct become delusion,
One will not attain the real result
One will be like a blind man who has no eyes."
