Sponsor a tree which will be planted on your behalf at Kechara Forest Retreat. By contributing to the greening of this peaceful forest haven, you are helping to create an environment that will benefit all visitors through sight, sound, smell, taste and touch as they come here in search of solace, peace and spiritual attainments. You are also making an offering directly to the Three Jewels as the whole environment is created for growth of the Buddha Dharma.

Sponsoring the Temple

Over 2,500 years ago, the Buddha taught the Dharma to bring living beings out of suffering. His precious teachings are kept alive in Dharma centres, temples and monasteries — physical places where spiritual seekers can find solace, advice and help.

In Buddhism, contributing towards the preservation and spread of the teachings is one of the highest forms of generosity. That’s why sponsoring the temple and contributing to its upkeep and facilities is a core practice in all Buddhist traditions. One way to do this is by making donations and offerings at places of worship where Buddha’s teachings are alive and well. Kechara Forest Retreat is one such place.

Buddha taught that sponsors who help to build and maintain holy temples, or contribute towards its daily operations will gain great merits, enjoy incredible wealth and power in future lives, and eventually attain enlightenment. As the great Indian yogi, Nagden Pawo said:

“Anyone who contributes to the building of a temple, no matter how small that contribution is, even if it is just requesting others for donations, continuously collects tremendous merits even as they go about their daily lives.”

Your generosity in supporting our temple will allow Buddha’s sacred teachings and Lama Tsongkhapa’s precious lineage to be preserved in this peaceful, holy environment, bringing benefit to others for many generations to come. In return, you’ll receive a stream of daily merits for prosperity, good health, removal of obstacles, protection, abundance and fulfilment of wishes.

About Kechara Forest Retreat

“Since I was a young child, I wanted to create a place where people come together to live as one with nature, one with the earth; a place for healing, detoxification, contemplation, relaxation and retreat.

An international centre for meditation courses not based on religion but tapping into ourselves and our potential. A place for eco-living modelled on sustainability and growth.

This project is Kechara Forest Retreat and it will be a space to inspire the world to do the same in their own communities.”

– Tsem Rinpoche

Since our inception in 2012, Kechara Forest Retreat has grown to become a renowned Tibetan Buddhist Retreat and Wellness centre, known for result-focused spiritual and meditational programmes.

Our 35-acre centre in the exurban forest enclave of Bentong, Pahang is also a sacred ground, home to a pantheon of Tibetan deities and holy sites. It is here, amidst the lush verdant highlands that we impart a contemporary presentation of Buddhist teachings and practices, to bring you closer to Buddha’s wisdom in the Tibetan spiritual tradition.
