Rinpoche’s current student and disciples come from all walks of life and across the globe. Besides Singapore, he was also invited to teach in United States and Malaysia.
A disciple of Singha Rinpoche since 2005
Keith's expertise as an entertainer was put to good use when he was invited by Thekchen Choling Youth Group in 2012 to coach them in singing, dancing & acting.
This experience ignited his passion for teaching. He then started to teach our yearly Basic Buddhism course from 2014.
Having a keen interest in meditation, Keith actually started attending retreats in Thailand even before he became a Buddhist.
He has also led and facilitated meditation practices and retreats with Thekchen Choling Singapore and Melaka since 2016.

Vimalakirti is a lay Buddhist meditator who attained a very high degree of enlightenment. He demonstrates his deep enlightenment and understanding of Buddhism through debates with a host of Buddha’s disciples.
