New Distribution Partner: Kechara Media & Publications

Select Books is pleased to announce that we have been appointed the exclusive distributor in Singapore for Kechara Media & Publications.

Kechara Media & Publications (KMP) is a Malaysian publishing house. Established in 2005 under the spiritual guidance of His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, KMP’s vision is to bring the ancient wisdom of Buddhist teachings into the context of modern contemporary living thereby appealing to a very wide spectrum of readers. KMP’s imprints in both English and Chinese cover broad genres ranging from serious Dharma to lifestyle to biography, with the common thread of personal development which inspires, transforms and benefits others.

Here is a selection of three recent titles from Kechara:

Vajrayogini and other Sacred Power Places in Nepal was inspired by H. E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche when he took 61 people on a whirlwind pilgrimage to Nepal. This book is an account of the amazing spiritual journey with each temple and holy site beautifully captured on camera along with Tsem Rinpoche's powerful explanations and stories. The principle pilgrimage sites which the pilgrims were privileged to visit consisted of ancient caves and temples related to the Tantric deity called Vajrayogini, the Mahasiddha Naropa and his Guru, Tilopa. There are many photographs particularly of the ancient and sacred Vajrayogini statues that have never been seen in print - in fact, most of these sites are not even mentioned in the usual guidebooks. It is hoped that this book will serve to inspire intrepid spiritual seekers who wish to make their own spiritual journey to discover the ancient world of Vajrayogini.

The first book of its kind, Gurus for Hire, Enlightenment for Sale provides an insider’s guide to the precarious Guru-disciple relationship. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche explains with great clarity the meaning of spiritual practice in the context of our contemporary world and how we can apply it in our everyday lives. He also addresses the myths surrounding spiritual practice, Gurus, Dharma centres and the political games that are played behind closed temple doors. Gurus for Hire, Enlightenment for Sale has received international acclaim from renowned personalities.

Tsongkhapa: A Simple Guide to A Powerful Practice contains the concise history, benefits and commentary on the Guru Yoga practice of Lama Tsongkhapa. With his characteristically down-to-earth style, Tsem Tulku Rinpoche explains this extremely powerful practice in a step-by-step guide, which is clear, easy to understand and practice for even the most novice practitioners. This practice is especially suited for lay people with contemporary lifestyles, who are always busy and who have many responsibilities, often juggling between work and family. It helps to clear illness, lighten depression, reduce loneliness and bring harmony, stability and peace to our homes. With the correct motivation, this practice is a wish-fulfilling jewel and will make our aspirations come true.
