Details

The greatest achievement is selflessness. The greatest quality is seeking to serve others. ~Atisha


Supporting those who spend their lives benefiting others is a worthwhile action. Kechara's Buddhist Pastors are selfless and committed individuals who have taken an extraordinary step in dedicating their lives towards sharing the Buddhist tradition and serving the Buddhist community.

Combining the responsibilities of the ordained and the appearance of a layperson, pastors are the connection between the sangha and the everyday practitioner. In effect, pastors are ordinary people who have made a commitment towards their spirituality, and the spirituality of others. Their duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Performing Buddhist prayers and rituals at Kechara's Puja House and off-site
  • Performing last rites and bereavement ritual services
  • Performing blessing ceremonies
  • Performing marriage registrations
  • Conducting Buddhist educational programmes
  • Conducting public talks and other outreach programmes
  • Providing counselling in person and online
  • Providing Dharma support and guidance to Buddhist study groups in Malaysia and Singapore

  • The “Support the Pastors” programme seeks to raise funds for the Pastors' daily expenses so that they may continue to carry out their sacred duties. By supporting the Pastors:

  • You allow the Pastors to bring spiritual solace and guidance to those who are in pain
  • You allow the Pastors to guide others along their spiritual journeys
  • You give Pastors the means to spend even more of their time and effort to serve others
  • You provide the Pastors the means to make a real difference in people’s lives
  • You ensure that the Buddhist teachings can be shared with others

  • Your contributions will go a long way towards providing necessities such as food, lodging, transportation, ritual items, spiritual gifts for those in need, and other items necessary for pastoral work.

    Please help our Pastors help others. You too can make a difference.
