MAHASIDDHA SANCTUARY FUNDRAISING GALA DINNER
For many years, Buddhist spiritual leader Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche has developed a strong following in Malaysia—especially among those who resonate with his call for peace and unity, regardless of race, religion or creed. His commitment towards the cause is evident in his vision of the Mahasiddha Sanctuary for Universal Peace in Lumbini, Nepal. To make his vision a reality, five charitable women came together to raise funds for this project through a charity dinner. Spearheaded by Dato’ Rosemarie Wee, the gala dinner was held at the grand ballroom of Shangri-la Hotel Kuala Lumpur. After dinner was served, benevolent guests participated in a bidding auction for exquisite art pieces, from which proceeds were directed into the building of the centre. The gracious Rinpoche then spent the evening blessing every single guest in attendance.
