Community spirit in Bentong

Sep 17, 2015 | Views: 653

About one hour away from our capital city which is Kuala Lumpur, we have our beautiful Kechara Forest Retreat which is located in the town of Bentong, Pahang. You can read more about how we found our land here.

Bentong is a small town and it has a very nice waterfall which is a tourist attraction. I visit this waterfall from time to time to do my prayers and meditations there, and to bring groups of students there to relax and enjoy the place. The drive down to the waterfall which is called Jalan Chamang is quite scenic with big, wonderful trees. Many people run up and down this road, and also bike down this road. And coincidentally, Kechara Forest Retreat happens to be located along Jalan Chamang!

To celebrate Malaysia Day which was on September 16, 2015 the Bentong City Council wanted to organise a gotong royong event to clean up and beautify Jalan Chamang. I am told gotong royong refers to an activity organised by the neighbourhood and residents to do something beneficial for the local community, and to foster community spirit.

This is definitely something that Kechara is in support of because as part of our work to create conscious communities, of course it means to be conscious of our environment and to add value to whatever environment and community we find ourselves in. So Kechara was invited to organise the event in collaboration with the council which was very, very nice. I am so happy we were able to be a part of this because definitely Kechara is a part of the Bentong community and we wish to give something back. I have been in Malaysia for over 20 years and Malaysia and her people have been very kind to me, so I have much to be grateful for.

The event today was officiated by the President of Majlis Perbandaran Bentong (Bentong City Council), Yang Dipertua (YDP) Mohammad Shahid bin Ismail who I am told was very enthusiastic and supportive of this event, and took a very hands-on approach in organising it. Thank you so much YDP for taking time out of your busy schedule to spearhead and grace this event.

From Kechara, Pastor Henry Ooi and Nicholas Yu were our liaisons with the Bentong City Council to help organise this. The event received the cooperation of various government and private organisations, for example Alam Flora, Jawatankuasa Perwakilan Penduduk (JPP – Residents’ Representative Committee), Jawatankuasa Kampung- Kampung Baru (JKKB – Committee of New Villages), Jabatan Hutan (Forestry Department), Solid Waste Corp Malaysia and Komuniti Combi Felda Lurah Bilut.

Wonderful Kecharians helping to clean Jalan Chamang on Malaysia Day

Malaysians from all walks of life came to participate in this gotong royong initiative which would not have been possible without the kindness of these volunteers who participated in this community effort to improve our beautiful Bentong. 67 Kecharian volunteers joined 100 volunteers from these various departments. Together with machinery and lorries, everyone worked together and cleaned up the whole Jalan Chamang in three short hours!

Kechara Forest Retreat was chosen as the gathering point for this gotong royong initiative because it is exactly at the mid-point of Jalan Chamang, equidistant from the waterfall and also from the town centre. So the day before the event, our Kechara Forest Retreat team supervised three flagpoles erected at the front of our land, to raise our Malaysia flag, Pahang state flag and also our Kechara flag. Then they supervised the set up of the event location which was held behind our Gyenze chapel.

On the morning of Malaysia Day, at 7:30am, all of the volunteers gathered at the front of Kechara Forest Retreat. A group photo was taken and YDP gave an opening speech welcoming everyone’s participation in the event. He mentioned that as the Chamang Waterfall is a tourist attraction point, it is a good idea to clean up the road leading to it which is Jalan Chamang. YDP also said that it is important for the Forestry Department to plant nice, big trees at the places where we are clearing the rubbish to discourage littering in the future. YDP then thanked the various departments for giving their support whenever the City Council needs help, and thanked Kechara for our support of this event.

After that, everyone divided into their respective groups to focus on specific stretches of Jalan Chamang, before gathering back at Kechara Forest Retreat for lunch. Below are the details of what was organised for this gotong royong event, along with the names of the people and companies who sponsored them. I wish to thank everyone for making this event such a success, and especially to thank YDP Mohammad Shahid bin Ismail for his leadership, initiatives and works to improve Bentong. The Majlis Perbandaran Bentong, or Bentong City Council, has been supportive of our presence here in the community and I am so happy we were able to do something to give back to Bentong as we always have and always will do. I thank all of them very much.

Wherever we go and whomever we meet, we should endeavour to leave the people and places in a better state than when we first met them. And if we cannot hurt them, then at least do no harm to them. So I am very proud of my Kecharians who were involved in this event and I hope we will do much more of this in the future.

    Great job to the organiser. It is a meaningful event and I am glad that I participated in this Gotong Royong to help clean up Jalan Chamang. It is a great way to contribute to the community and clean up the environment nearby Kechara Forest Retreat. I just hope people will care for the cleanliness and not throw rubbish everywhere. We are living in a civilize country where we have proper place to manage the rubbish.

  2. kb thapa on Dec 30, 2015 at 7:32 pm

    Community work is very important to everyone and gives us an opportunity to give back to our society. we must always support of many more different community work its a great spirit, I was personally was involved resent cleaning program and it just feels great to do.. Thank you Rinpoche for opportunity

    It is wonderful to see so many people who are willing to get up early on a public holiday to do something that does not benefit them but to benefit the public.

    It is sad to see that many people, be it locals or tourists to a particular place tend to treat it like a rubbish dump and dumping their rubbish wherever they please.

    The rubbish lying by the roadside is not a welcome sight and it is good to see the local municipal council along with the public and volunteers from Kechara all working together to clean up Jalan Chamang.

    This will give a good and positive image to all who will use this stretch of road as neat and tidy.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing!

    Being at this event was very special for me. I have never experienced such a large event of this kind, and i sure am glad i did.

    Its always good to do something to your community. It doesn’t even have the be the community which you live in. I don’t live in Bentong, yet i still cleaned up the roads and helped out. Its not for personal gain. In a way it may be because you feel good about yourself after you’ve done the job, but its about helping other and the environment around you.

    Everywhere we go we must do something for our surroundings, whether it be to clean the roads, or to help someone cross the road. It doesn’t matter. We must be aware that we can help, and help. That is how we become good people.

    Cleaning up and picking up trash in front of KFR may not have been so fun (it actually was 🙂 ) but its not about whether you like it, its about whats best for the people around you. Its never nice to have dirty streets, and if nobody else is going to do anything about it, we might as well have. And thats what we did that day. I hope that this event inspired many in the community of Bentong to do more events like this for the sake of the beautiful environment of that lovely town.

  5. Lucas Roth on Oct 14, 2015 at 12:34 pm

    I remember that day as good fun while doing something good. I was happy to be a help to the people and the community spirit in cleaning up. I was also happy to have collected many pieces of rubbish and my brother and I were the only people that could climb down the side of road to get bags of rubbish down there. It felt good to get dirty while making something cleaner.

    I felt especially good when we got a huge paradise for bottles, we found at least 50 bottles there. Must be a hangout. But I felt useful for the right reasons. To help the people of Bentong and KFR with their connection to Bentong.

    I didn’t do it because it was exercise of because I had to. I did it because I also wanted to understand how some road cleaners feel across the world. This is just my thought, but I have heard it is the worst job to have, and I wanted to get a taste. Then I felt thankful to everything in my life and I also appreciated how many people out there do such dirty jobs to do somethings that most people don’t notice. Those are just my thoughts. I hope they make sense :p.

    Gotong-royong to do spring cleaning and others activities bring back so much memory when we were in school or staying in kampong (village). This is Malaysian way of getting community works done by working together – with some people bring in tools, some bring in kuih-muih and drinks, some bring in human power and etc.

    We all love and appreciate clean and beautiful environment, and beautiful environment can only be gained and maintained by having all of us contributing into it…

    This is truly a meaningful way to celebrate Malaysia Day. Thanks for all parties involved in organising this go tong-royong and all the beautiful photos. 🙂

  7. Li Kheng on Sep 26, 2015 at 2:29 pm

    Gotong Royong is a custom of Malaysia, Truly Asia that most of our kids have become a stranger to. I was so glad that Kechara Forest Retreat reignited this spirit of community in Bentong. Giving back to the community that we have come to belong to is important to establish harmony and sense of belonging.

    It was so nice to see everyone get together to make a spot in Malaysia clean and beautiful on Malaysia Day.

    Not only did we clean up, we also planted trees to replace the illegal rubbish sites that unofficially became dumping ground.

    May Malaysia develop greater consciousness about the environment and may Kechara always find ways to compliment the community spirit here.

  8. Stella on Sep 18, 2015 at 6:25 pm

    It was a wonderful way to spend Malaysia Day, contributing our energy and time to clean up a place we call home. When we have love in our heart for our country, no racket will change that.

    Thank you Kechara Forest Retreat for this opportunity to do my small part.

    With folded palms,humbly,
    Stella

  9. Sharon Ong on Sep 17, 2015 at 6:18 pm

    What a meaningful way to spend Malaysia Day by fostering community spirit and harmony through a good old fashion gotong royong. Back when I was younger, there were many of these community based initiatives to clean up our schools and village/residential areas. The spirit of togetherness and neighbourliness are something I miss since I moved to the city.

    Good to see this happening in KFR, Bentong especially on Malaysia Day, celebrating what being Malaysian is really about.

    Thank you for this post and lovely photos, Rinpoche!

    In Belgium we are missing something. I see you there (i do not talk about the nuns or lama’s or monks), work together, organise things together. it is amazing. Here i did my vows but i’m not often because of THAT situation in the temple. Here they come and go and nobody cares one for another. They may come in my house, but they never do. If i write the temple there is no answer. … keep it the way you do!

  11. Wah Ying on Sep 17, 2015 at 11:01 am

    Since school days we have gotong royong in school and our neighbourhood. This is a good way clean up our environment, and to bond our relationship among people from all walks of life, regardless of their races, religions and cultural background. That’s the Malaysian way to foster community spirit 🙂

    Power Struggle at Dalai Lama’s Potala Palace – Tibet

    Each Dalai Lama is a unique individual, they have been philosophers, builders and even poets, and as each is revered as a Bodhisattva who possess great mystical powers and can incarnate life after life, every Dalai Lama has great potential to benefit many beings by disseminating Buddhism and safeguarding his fellow countrymen. This can be seen clearly as His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has been a charismatic global spiritual teacher whose teachings are timeless and translated into many languages.

    This 5-story apartment building in Turin, Italy Is disguised in potted forest of trees and branching steel beams. Designed by Luciano Pia, this creation transforms Turin’s homogeneous urban scene and blows life into the residential building.

    The structure creates a transition from outdoors to in, with 150 trees absorbing close to 200,000 liters of carbon dioxide per hour. Each species of plant has been purposefully chosen from plant life in Turin to provide the diversity in color, foliage, and blooming.

    Ku Shulan was born in 1920 to a poor peasant family in a small Chinese village called Wang in Xunyi County, Shaanxi province. At the age of 9, her feet were bound by her mother and after leaving school at 15, she began to learn embroidery and jianzhi (papercutting) as part of her training for marriage. She was married at the age of 17 to a husband who regularly abused her throughout their life together, and gave birth to 13 children, 10 of whom died of starvation or disease before they reached adulthood.

    In spite of the extraordinary privations and hardships she endured, Ku Shulan, who never learned to read and write, persisted with her papercutting throughout her adult life and in 1980, her extraordinary talent in jianzhi was discovered by Shanxi Province Cultural Center, after which she was invited to teach and direct papercutting in her province. Soon after, her reputation rose immensely, and Ku was bestowed many domestic awards. In 1996, Ku was designated “Master of China Folk Art and Crafts” by UNESCO. Ku Shulan died in 2004 aged 84, but her popularity and reputation continue to grow.

    Every year, during the first and seventh months of the Chinese lunar calendar, the Wealth God temple in Kampung Perting and the Indian temples in Bentong organise processions of the Taoist and Hindu deities in Bentong town. Mediums of these gods take trance and walk together with their devotees, blessing the public along the streets. To show the presence of the gods in trance, some of the mediums pierced their cheeks with long metal skewers throughout the event. This has been a tradition of Bentong for many years. As the mediums walked by during the recent procession, without being prompted or told, the mediums in trance of the gods themselves purposely stopped and paid homage to Dorje Shugden while passing the Bigfoot store.

    Similarly to human being, the gods and local deities need blessings too. They want to be liberated from Samsara and they know Dorje Shugden can guide them towards enlightenment. There is no doubt Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being and his compassion is for all sentient beings.

    Due to rapid development and progress, environmental issues such as air pollution have become a big challenge in China. Contrary to what the world has been saying about China, we do see that China has already invested in and embarked on environmental protection initiatives since the 1960s, before it opened its door to the world. Clearly, China has not disregarded the importance of environmental protection in the course of its development and growth.

    This story is very inspiring. Some people just do what they think is right with sincerity, not because they want to be praised or recognised. Mr. Jadav Payeng is one of those people. His compassion for the snakes has motivated him to plant one tree sapling every day by the bank of the world largest river island, Majuli.

    40 years later, Majuli is covered by a forest stretches over 500 hectares over the barren lands of Majuli island and many wild lives are found living here again. I believe Mr. Jadav has never dreamed of getting recognition or hoped that someone will notice his work one day. His passion and love for the mother nature and animals are very touching. How many of us really consider other beings as part of our ecosystem and take them into consideration?

    These signs and marks are said to appear only on the body of someone who is exemplary because they denote the inner qualities of that person. Furthermore, it is also a sign that this person or being can leave imprints in the minds of others to achieve those very same qualities. When we study and understand the meaning behind these marks, we come to the realisation that they serve as reminders of the qualities that we should practise in our daily lives on our path to spiritual perfection. Not only do the Buddhas teach the Dharma verbally, but even their bodies are used as roadmaps to enlightenment itself.

    Ucchusma is unique as she is the female form of Bhurkumkuta. The phenomenon of having male and female manifestations of the same Buddha is relatively rare. Her practice can be found in the Rinjung Gyatsa collection of sadhanas and she is particularly powerful and effective to purify defilements of the mind, deluded minds, negative thinking, broken promises and the resultant karma, illness, faulty memory, memory issues, body pollution and negative energy.

    There are some information compile including some short practices for those who would like to learn more.

    However, not all is well in paradise. When each incarnation is recognised, the successor will inherit the position, fame, and estates of his predecessor. As such, as highlighted in Mike Dash’s article featured in smithsonian.com, the selection of the Dalai Lamas is never a straightforward and purely religious process. You will read about the politics and power struggles surrounding the selection process, insights into the tragic loss as the lives of the Dalai Lamas were cut short due to political intrigue, and most of all, the key events that shaped Tibetan history.

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

Find one of the most beautiful temples in the world in Nara, Japan. It is the 1,267 year old Todai-ji temple that houses a 15 meter Buddha Vairocana statue who is a cosmic and timeless Buddha. Emperor Shomu who sponsored this beautiful temple eventually abdicated and ordained as a Buddhist monk. Very interesting history and story. One of the places everyone should visit- https://bit.ly/2VgsHhK

This poor boy is being forced to leave his friend to be sold for slaughter. Children have a natural connection with animals, and they know it is wrong to hurt and kill them.

    2 yearss 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
