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.
