Tibet is a land of magic and mystery in the Himalayas, surrounded by high mountain peaks that rendered it inaccessible for centuries. A peaceful country, Tibet was governed by the Dalai Lamas, revered incarnate beings who returned life after life to protect and spread the Buddha’s teachings.

On the eve of China's takeover of Lhasa in 1959, the entire world was caught by surprise when His Holiness the Dalai Lama eluded the Chinese People’s Liberation Army surrounding the city and escaped undetected. As recorded in the autobiography of His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche, the Dalai Lama's Junior Tutor, and signed eyewitness affidavits, The Great Escape tells the true story of the Dalai Lama’s epic flight into exile in India and how the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden was behind every pivotal step to bring His Holiness safely out of Tibet for the future of the Tibetan people, culture and religion.

Dorje Shugden is a fully enlightened Buddha in the form of a protector deity whom millions of people around the world rely on for luck, blessings and good fortune. The extraordinary accounts of Dorje Shugden’s readiness and swiftness in bringing people help when they need it, even during the most difficult times, have gained him the reputation of being a “Wish Fulfiller”.

This is just one of many stories told about Dorje Shugden, the Wish Fulfiller.

A recommended read for both adults and children.

About Kechara Comics

“Comics are not heavy thick books that can frighten people away, which is why they are a wonderful educational medium to bring people deep Dharma and Dorje Shugden in a simple, easy to understand and enjoyable way.” ~ Tsem Rinpoche

Growing up in Howell, New Jersey, some of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche's favourite memories were happy times with his adoptive mother picking out the latest comics at the neighbourhood convenience store. After joining the monastery in India, Rinpoche discovered how India’s largest and most famous comic book publisher — Amar Chitra Katha — made complex Hindu and Buddhist biographies, fables & epics into comic book stories that everyone could understand. Seeing how popular those comics were, Rinpoche always wanted to make Amar Chitra Katha style comics of Dorje Shugden available for all. Some time in 2018, Kechara Comics was conceived as Rinpoche was bouncing some story ideas casually with a few students. These ideas went on to become the storylines of the first three comics produced by Kechara Comics.

Kechara Comics brings inspirational and heartwarming tales to life in a light-hearted and fun way. From traditional folk tales to biographies of past Buddhist masters and real-life stories of people who have found new meaning and purpose through spirituality, Kechara Comics is for people of all ages. We hope you enjoy these stories and that you too can discover how the Buddhist way of life can help you develop inner peace, love, wisdom and happiness.
