尊贵的詹杜固仁波切克切拉香积厨志工分派口罩给无家可归者的行动,于6月26日出现在《新海峡时报》报章。

免费派送口罩的目的是让在住在街头的无家可归者和长时间在街上活动的人,能在某程度下防范烟霾的危害。每年的干旱季节,印尼的林火在季候风的吹袭下,吹到新加坡和马来西亚半岛,让本区域内笼罩在烟霾底下。

Elena Khong, liaison to H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, was inspired after realising that not everybody could afford the luxury of clean, air-conditioned air. Hearing of Elena’s idea, Vinnie Tan and a dedicated team raised enough funds in one afternoon to purchase 4,000 face masks and 2,400 individually packaged eye drops! With Tsem Rinpoche at the forefront, the team braved the haze to distribute the items to those around Kuala Lumpur, especially amongst the grateful homeless, those with vulnerable children or just those that were unaware of the health risks of breathing in the haze.

This compassionate act of caring for those who would ordinarily not have help during the haze is selflessness in action, something that Tsem Rinpoche teaches as a core practice of Buddhism and shows himself through his own daily actions.

It was through this compassion, and his experiences as someone who had previously been homeless himself, that has led Rinpoche to care for the homeless so much. This attribute is well reflected in his students and Elena in particular, who thought how others would be effected by the haze and how to best benefit them.
