Jalan Chamang (or Chamang Road) is famous for the Chamang Waterfalls, a major tourist spot in Bentong, Malaysia. It is also a winding and shady stretch that attracts many locals who enjoy jogging and cycling here. Halfway down this road is also the entrance to our retreat centre, Kechara Forest Retreat.

Thus, I was very happy when Kechara and Tsem Rinpoche Foundation in collaboration with various government departments and private companies decided to organize a mutual aid event to clean up the whole of Chamang Road in Bentong in conjunction with Malaysia Day 2016.

As spiritual seekers, caring for our environment is very important as is giving our service to the local community. Personally, I find it a great honor to be able to give the Bentong towns folk a clean and safe environment to enjoy on Chamang Road.

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the many departments who sponsored and volunteered for this event, and especially to YDP Mohammad Shahid bin Ismail, who took some time from his busy schedule to grace our event with his presence in order to raise awareness of the importance of keeping our environment clean.

Gotong Royong for Malaysia Day 2016

‘Gotong Royong’ is the Malay word for communal work where people of a locality come together to carry out community-centric tasks such as cleaning up the environment by clearing litter and garbage and cleaning out public drains.

In celebration of Malaysia Day, Kechara and Tsem Rinpoche Foundation in collaboration with Majlis Perbandaran Bentong (Bentong Municipal Council) organized the annual Gotong Royong for the second year running. The objective was to clean up Jalan Chamang, Bentong, so that tourists and visitors could enjoy their journey to Chamang Waterfall. In addition, a cleaner environment would help prevent mosquitoes from breeding.

We were honored to have the Yang Dipertua (YDP) Majlis Perbandaran Bentong, Mohammad Shahid bin Ismail, to officiate the event at 8.30am, 16th September 2016 in Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR). In his speech, YDP thanked Kechara for taking the initiative in organising this event, explaining that clearing the environment helps to curtail the spread of mosquitoes, particularly Aedes mosquitoes that spread dengue fever as well as the latest strain, Zika. He also added that he hopes this community service effort will continue on a yearly basis every Malaysia Day.

The event saw 85 volunteers from Kechara, Majlis Perbandaran Bentong, Tsem Rinpoche Foundation, Alam Flora (Environmental Management), SW Corp and Jabatan Perhutanan (Forestry Department) working diligently and harmoniously in true community spirit, covering a four-kilometer radius from the entrance KFR on Jalan Chamang right to the famous Air Terjun Chamang (Chamang Waterfall). The YDP was also seen participating in the clean up alongside his staff and volunteers from Kechara.

    Thank you Rinpoche, sponsors and the support team in making this a success for the activity. This activity created opportunity for those who practiced teamwork and worked in harmony with others in order to raise awareness of a clean environment and prevent Zika virus caused by mosquito bites.

    Hope this activity will continue to be held on a regular basis for the benefit of many others.

  2. Wan Wai Meng on Dec 9, 2016 at 11:59 pm

    Gotong Royong is something not so commonly heard like yesteryears, it is a coming together of the community to do something that benefits the community as a whole. It is an elevation of one’s consciousness, and it does take a more enlightened state of mind, to see that the community is much more important and essential than the individual.

    As not everyone who participated in this activity, got direct benefit from this exercise. But there is an indirect benefit that, by benefitting others, they are in fact benefitting themselves. increasingly more and more thinkers of the day are thinking that the happiness of others, do in fact affect our own happiness, it is like we are all invisibly interconnected to one another like the movie Matrix. The happiness of one, affects and increases the happiness of the whole, and the unhappiness of one affects also the whole.

  3. Kb Thapa on Nov 7, 2016 at 4:12 am

    The only way forward, if we are going to improve the quality of the environment, is to get everybody involved. but it is also creating a cause for a cleaner place. We just need someone to start and create awareness as Rinpoche do more people will become aware and will actively work towards a cleaner environment . Great to see smile on their face…

  4. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Oct 23, 2016 at 10:58 pm

    Big thank you and rejoice to Yang Dipertua (YDP) Majlis Perbandaran Bentong, Mohammad Shahid bin Ismail, the organizing committee, Kechara Pastors, Kechara staff and all the volunteers who had spent the holiday in clearing up the rubbish along the Jalan Chamang in Bentong, Pahang.

    A clean and mosquito-free environment is very important for all walks of life as polluted environments can cause serious epidemic virus or bacteria to grow and spread within the vicinity of the area.

    Hopefully, there will be more and more people recognizing the importance of a clean environment by not simply throwing the rubbish at the roadside at their convenience but applying awareness of not polluting the environment by owning the self-responsibility, protect and preserve the Mother nature for our future generations. Prevention is always easier than cure.

    Thank you with folded hands,
    kin hoe

  5. Freon Tee on Oct 3, 2016 at 6:01 pm

    Spending holiday in doing cleaning is something meaningful. Kechara Organisation not only having a Retreat center in Chamang, Bentong to heal people but by organizing this activity, it brought awareness to many that it is important to keep the environment clean.

    YDP Mohammad Shahid bin Ismail even took his leisure time out and work together with Kechara to clean the environment. His attitude impress many others and i believe, Bentong will have a clean space

    Environment is not our big rubbish bin that we conveniently throw our rubbish into it and polluted the environment. With the new virus – Zika, the awareness towards our environment should be more alert. By simply throwing the rubbish, we are creating a karma to have dirty environment.

    Love our mother earth, as this is the only habitat we have.

  6. Stella Cheang on Oct 3, 2016 at 11:00 am

    It is really heartwarming to see Malaysian come together as a community and discard the label of race or religion for the purpose of greater good. This is the teachings of all religions. To keep the environment that we live in clean and beautiful is our responsibility. Thank you Rinpoche and Kechara for creating this opportunity for us to give back to the society and be a good citizen of Malaysia.

  7. Julien Roth on Sep 29, 2016 at 12:02 am

    I remember when I was present for last years cleaning day. It was really an experience to remember. I remember going to places other people would not even think of going, pulling out huge and yucky bags of rubbish and dumping it onto a dump truck. I felt good. Good that I was doing something for not only the town of Bentong, but for mother nature.

    I am happy to see that this cleaning up is becoming a consistent thing in Bentong. Kecharians must set an example for the locals in Bentong. They must show that litter and pollution is wrong and needs to be corrected. If this occasion is repeated yearly, I am sure that more and more people will become aware of this.

  8. sonny tan on Sep 27, 2016 at 5:26 pm

    Thank you to all who participated in this combined effort to clean Chamang Road in Bentong, it is heartening to know that all were truly focused on this task of making Bentong a more cleaner town.
    These auspicious events were attended by the head of the local municipal council and also the forestry department speaks volumes of the recognition that they have on Kechara. The contribution by the local contractors providing their machineries for the cleanup must also be congratulated for their kind thoughts and efforts.
    This humbleness shown by the respective local government departments, contractors and Kecharians working in unison to do the cleanup is something Kecharians can be proud of and hopefully we pray for many more wonderful happenings in the near future. This personal association and blending with the local authorities and the Bentong residents will make it easier for us to introduce Tibetan Buddhism to them.

  9. Sofi on Sep 27, 2016 at 5:49 am

    Rejoice for everyone who took part in this gotong-royong event. How wonderful to see Kecharians working with the volunteers and the local municipal officials to clean up the road to Chamang Waterfalls, an attraction with many visitors. Our Guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche had always promoted environmental preservation for our future and the future of our generations to come. This is a fulfilment of his vision in the nicest possible way as everyone works together in willing harmony. Kudos everyone!

  10. Wylfred Ng on Sep 26, 2016 at 1:08 pm

    这是克切拉禅修林与文冬当地政府部门连续第二年在马来西亚日当天进行Gotong Royong清理暹猛路。不少克切拉的职工、义工、政府部门员工都在这个假日参与这个有意义的活动。

    暹猛路是克切拉禅修林的所在地, 也是通往文冬暹猛情人瀑布的唯一道路, 在假日都有不少游客前往这些地方参观。 通过清洁暹猛路可以让来这里旅游的游客对于文冬有更好的印象。

    希望明年我们还可以再继续主办这个有意义的活动。

    谢谢

    As Buddhists, we learn that we are interdependent, humans, animals, the environment and all beings therein. It is important to create harmony and taking care of the environment is the responsible thing to do. After all, we need a clean conducive environment for our sustenance. It might be not a global effort, but cleaning out your own back yard and beyond, is a small but good start and does make a difference. We should never feel that our efforts are too small to make an impact.

  12. Sock Wan on Sep 25, 2016 at 2:29 pm

    It is very important to keep our environment and community clean and safe to live in. In Kechara we believe everyone is inter-dependent, thus it is important to respect each other, to respect our environment. By having activity like this, we are create awareness to the public the importance of keeping our environment clean and the responsibility we each have towards the betterment of our society.

  13. Mingwen on Sep 25, 2016 at 12:51 am

    Thank you! Terima Kasih! “Nandri”! 谢谢!

    To every body who contributed & make this meaningful event happened again.

    Sad to say, in fact, they are always people who love to left “marks” wherever they go and kind hearted people like you guys would spend your precious energy and time to take care of the environment and wipe off those unwanted “marks”.

    We all have responsibility to take care of the mother nature because we all share the same Earth! We would able to spend our time and energy to do something else which are more significant, if everyone do their own small part. Etc., to dispose rubbish into the rubbish bins.

    It seem like it’s a little too difficult for everyone to do so, because we are a little bit too selfish and a little bit too lazy. However, for instance, when people dump rubbish around where we are living, we would not delay to make complaints and curse people who dumped. When we do not care about the others, why should the others care about us?

    I’ve no idea, what can be done to change people mind, so that we will not be so selfish and damage the Earth any further. I could only think of doing my own part and join great people to take care of the sake of our home, so that the mother nature knows there are still people who love her.

    Much appreciations from me to those heros and heroines who really care about our home!

  14. Lin Mun on Sep 23, 2016 at 12:19 am

    It is great effort in participating a Gotong Royong with the local government. We as a part of the community must always work together towards a cleaner environment hand in hand with the local authority.

    It is not only the authority’s responsibility to care for the environment but the whole community. Hope this activity will bring more awareness to be responsible of our action, love our community and environment.

  15. Samfoonheei on Sep 22, 2016 at 1:35 pm

    Kudos…to those who made the cleaning up of Jalan Chamang, Bentong, a successful comunity event.When we have a cleaner environment ,more people and tourist will visit the famous waterfall, KFR and the Bentong town as well.At the same time to keep the place away from mosquitoes breeding further,As spiritual seekers its wonderful to work with other local departments in caring and giving our service to the local community and to protect our environment.May those who had sponsored tools etc and to those who are involved in the cleaning up be blessed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

  16. Fong on Sep 19, 2016 at 11:36 pm

    It was a great effort by all to sponsor and participate in this gotong royong. Not only does it , at least temporarily cleans up the environment, it also raises awareness of a clean environment and that all should refrain from simply flinging rubbish out their vehicle window.

    It may seem a small step, but it is also creating a cause for a cleaner environment. Over time, more people will become aware and will actively work towards a cleaner Bentong – for a cleaner environment free of mosquitoes.

    Thank you for sharing this article as I’m sure it is a way of raising awareness.

    NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft has confirmed the discovery of its first alien world. We are not alone on earth afterall. Researchers discovered detectable sign of extra-terrestrial life in the atmosphere of a rocky planet . Wow It’s so exciting to imagine the possibilities, of potential habitability and may be suitable for life. Even with that discovery Earth remains a standout, and is still the only planet known to host life. Scientists concluded that the possibility of the existence of alien life forms. I am sure in future scientists will discover more new discoveries of planet in the habitable zone.

    Wow… living a house with waterfall, greens, forests, clean air is everyone wish. Waterfalls are wonders of nature that humans have adored since ancient times. The sight, sound, and feel of waterfall have a positive impart on our mind. The beauty of waterfalls everywhere has been immense sources of inspiration for many such as thinkers, writers, philosophers, travel lovers and so forth. Sitting beside a waterfall and listening to the sound of waterfalls makes us happy.
    Well truly a masterpiece by Frank Lloyd Wright in terms of architecture and this designed Fallingwater has been called the best all-time work of American architecture. He believed in designing in harmony with humanity and the environment, and he truly appreciate their abundant beauty. Great work Frank Lloyd Wright.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    HuffPost is an American liberal news portal, with localized and international editions. Well this portal offers news, blogs, and also covers politics, business, entertainment, environment etc . It cannot be wrong when mentioned about the Dorje Shugden controversy. It is a practice that the greatest Gelugpa and Sakya masters have hailed as all-important, and they have preserved and passed the lineage from one generation to another for 400 years. HuffPost’s professionalism and integrity says all. Those articles on the Shugden controversy is truly a testament.
    The H H 14th Dalai Lama, Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, has for decades travelled the globe with a message of peace, love and compassion. Yet these Dorje Shugden controversy happened due to some having their own agenda. Shugden practitioners have been relying on Dorje Shugdn for more than 350 years. Why now??? It had cause more sufferings, misunderstanding , families divided and so on. May all this be over soon for the sake of Tibetans . Interesting read……hopefully more people will read this blog to understand the situation better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    History is full of weird events that no one can explain , well that’s a fact. We are fortunate historians of the past have documented many of them for us to understand. Yet many unexplained mysteries remain unexplained even to this day. For some reason, we as humans tend to concentrate on the mysterious things more than the undeniable facts. World’s greatest unsolved mysteries always interest me. Mysteries of any topic is truly interesting to read the story. Death is a mystery to all of us, and so is reincarnation. When science cannot explain something it is often referred to as a belief. There are many mysterious stories in the world now where people claim to be reincarnated and they remember their past life. One such intriguing story was of Shanti Devi recalling her past life in modern times. Shanti Devi’s story is amazing at the age of four years old, she began telling her parents specific details about her old life.
    Interesting and weird mysterious stories in this blog, some of them are truly spooky.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    nteresting read …..after reading this blog had me realised animals do reincarnate after all. Animals can become human again and vice versa after death. Just like humans, animals reincarnate as part of our soul family groups. This means the animals in our life now, have very likely been in our life before, as an animal. The true life story of a Thai boy with a snake past life tells all . The Thai boy Dalawong as a wonder spirit recognizes the cobra’s attacker is a very good life evidence of the existence of reincarnation.
    Reading the topic of telepathy had me understand slightly better . According to researchers, telepathy is a non-verbal way to communicate with others. With telepathy, people communicate entirely in the mind without saying anything. Interesting. Do hope I could telepathy with my doggie.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting blog.

    Thanks for sharing all this creative special thoughts for readers to share with everyone . Simple thoughts yet easy understandable , meaningful tells us a thousand words of reality. Many will surly benefits it , reading those thoughts. Everyone has the right to practice his or her own religion, or rather no religion at all. Everyone should be supportive of religious freedom because religion is uniquely valuable to society. No one should ever suffer, be humiliated, assaulted, be segregated all because of their faith.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow again with folded hands.

    As the sun rose over the ancient town, Dharmakaya Ceitiya, Thailand, a sea of saffron and maroon-robed monks assembled in an area the size of a football field. Could not have imagined 30,000 ordained as monks in one go that’s rejoicing. Thailand is the Land of Dharma where the Buddhism has been established since thousands years ago. Buddha Dharma teachings have been infiltrated in the daily life of Thai people. The Thai Buddhist cultures are unique and beautiful and their country are known as “the Land of Smile”. Theravada Buddhism is the official religion of Thailand and plays a key role in many aspects of Thai culture. For many Thai people, Buddhism is considered a philosophy for how to live one’s life and numerous Buddhist principles. Buddhism is a key component to the identities of many Thais. Many beautiful Buddhist temples and golden statues could be a common sights all over. Thai Buddhism has influenced society for a long time that has contributed to Thai people being generally known as kind, and compassionate.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. Looking at those rare pictures tells all…..simple amazing able to see it.

    To live in the mountains was always Tsem Rinpoche’s dream. A quiet place called home with greenery surrounding. Mountains are the beginning and end of all natural scenery.The mountains give us time to take a moment to be in awe of the natural beauty of the world. It’s wonderful for everyone dream to those who love escaping the rush and pollution of modern life and altering our perspective. The mountains are an extraordinary environment of biological diversity, cultural diversity and linguistic diversity. But its exception for Rinpoche as in this blog somewhere in Thailand Rinpoche was there. Living on raft house surrounding by water watching sunrise and sunset . A beautiful , calm, solitude, quiet environment indeed. I would love these environment as well as mother nature is intoxicating.
    Rinpoche somehow founded an extraordinary environment of biological diversity, cultural diversity and linguistic diversity. A place call home to many of us that’s Kechara Forest retreat at Bentong. A unique examples of beauty, peace, austerity, spirituality, eco-yoga and creativity. A must visit to those who loves mother nature.
    Thank you Rinpoche .

    Reading these inspiring quotes again to refresh myself of the Buddha teachings. If we understand, it will change our life in long run. Change is never painful, only resistance to change ourselves is painful. By refusing to accept this change, we make it worse because we’re fighting against it, against the flow of life. One moment can change a day, one day can change a life. We should be open to change and embrace changes. By accepting the fact that nothing in the universe is permanent . We learn and practice makes improvement in our life and be thankful always.

    PURE DEMOCRACY is democracy in which the power is exercised directly by the people rather than through representatives. Its much different in this case. Reading this article and all comments tells us a clear pictures what had actually happened in this Dorje Shugden controversy. In democratic countries, the government does not interfere with religion.People have the freedom to practise any religion they want. Dorje Shugden’s practice has been around for 400 years and it will continue as practitioners could see and understand the benefits of relying on the practice. Everyone of us should given the freedom of religious belief. Peace and harmony can only be maintain through understanding and interaction or maybe a dialogue between parties involved . I am sure Dorje Shugden practitioners and everyone in the communities can live in harmony. Be to fair the right to freedom of belief , interviews on both sides instead just listening one sided. No one should ever suffer, be segregated, assaulted, hurt, degraded, hated and biased for their religious beliefs. Once for all these controversy should be solved for the sake of peace and harmony. Thanks Justin Whitaker for speaking up and standing up for what you believe in for readers to have a better understanding rather then reading what Reuters had published.

    Its sad how those Dorje Shugden practitioners had suffered and life is tough for them. Could’nt imagine not allow to enter premises such as hospitals for treatment, schools for education , securing a government job and so forth. Our very own Kecharian had even denied hotel rooms just because we practice it. This controversy had been going on for too long , hopefully it will dissolve soon with H h Dalai Lama saying we can practice it . All can live happily, no discrimination, with peace and harmony then. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David. Of course a hand of applauds to those kecharian who have been working hard to collect all the evidence of the ban against Dorje Shugden.

    A beneficial practice to do in our daily Sadhana which I truly love it. I have been doing this Kawang practice daily without miss. It helps to clear our obstacles and purify our karma with the correct visualization. By purifying our karmas as our merits increase as well. When done consistently, kawang practice will remove obstacles that threaten our Dharma practice. It also create conducive conditions both externally as material necessities and physical health, and internally within our mind. Amazing benefits indeed one should not miss. All thanks to Rinpoche to be here in Malaysia.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for sharing this post for readers to know better.

    A précised sharing by Rinpoche regarding the banning of the practice of the enlightened Protector Dorje Shugden by Tibetan Leadership. Reading and watching those videos will explain all about the ban controversy. Many highly attained Lamas had for the last 400 years, has been relying on Dorje Shugden. But as claim by the Tibetan leadership the practice of the enlightened Protector Dorje Shugden is evil spirit and a minor practice. They claimed that whoever practice Dorje Shugden will to the three lower realms. All these were not true just an excuse to worry their community into giving up the Dorje Shugden practice. There were many incarnations of Lamas coming back again and again. Yet the Tibetan leadership keeps recognizing the reincarnations of lamas who engaged in the practice of Dorje Shugden. They said those Masters would take rebirth in the three lower realms. Not logic at all. As in this article one could read more prominent Dorje Shugden practitioners of the last 400 years are back again. Interesting read one should not miss.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing

    We are not alone after-all. Spirits or unseen beings is everywhere. There are many different types of spirits around us, unseen to the naked eyes. A majority of people are believers in the existence of some kind of spiritual being. I do believe they do exist. Experiencing their existing in our sleep is scary some sort what happened to Pastor David. Many of us usually experience of feeling like we being touched or feeling pressure on their chest. It’s like something or someone is holding them down. Interesting read this paranormal experienced by Pastor David.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Li Kim for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    5 years ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

We are in the third week of Ramadan this year, and kind volunteers have never failed to feed people in need since Tengku Zatashah started this meaningful #zerofoodwastage initiative in 2016. The aim is to benefit the underprivileged with nice surplus food collected from Ramadan buffets. Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families. THANK YOU, Tengku, dedicated volunteers and hotel partners, for making this Ramadan special for the underprivileged. #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment - KSK @ Vivian
