The Next Step for Kechara…

21 Oct

The Kechara organisation is on the verge of a major expansion again with the renovation of the NEW KH Gompa (prayer hall) nearing completion. I am extremely excited about it and have been taking and posting almost daily photos of the progress on Facebook. So I shall present here some of the highlights of what I have taken so far.


This photo is taken at ground level of the New KH Gompa's facade. Unfortunately, the trees were blocking but you can still see the scaffolding on the walls as the workers are still working on it. 


I went to the third floor of the carpark building nearby and took this beautiful shot of the KH Gompa. You can even see the windows on the roof that lets sunlight into the main hall.


This is a 10 feet statue of Je Tse Zin Ma or the 'Lord of Life Force' that will be installed in the main hall. This is also the long life emanation of Lama Tsongkhapa. He will be the largest statue of Lama Tsongkhapa in South East Asia! We are very fortunate because he was especially commissioned by Kechara Discovery's Liaison Paul Yap. On top of that, there will be a 7 feet statues of Vajrayogini and Setrap arriving soon to flank Lama Tsongkhapa. 


This photo shows the main prayer hall is filled with scaffolding as the workers put the finishing touch to the ceiling. The hall is a massive one and would be able to fit 700 people for teachings and pujas. 


Anyway, for those of you who can't wait, here is how the facade of the New KH Gompa will look like when it's lit at night. It looks like a sleek and modern cinema hall to me! But it is going to me so much more than that.
