Over 1000 visitors from all over Malaysia descended on Kechara Forest Retreat for this year’s Wesak Day celebrations. With the theme “A Virtuous Day for Virtuous Deeds”, the all-day event featured a mixture of devotional practices for Buddhist merit-making and various spiritual lifestyle activities that were both fulfilling and fun. Both Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike came to experience Wesak as it is celebrated in the Tibetan tradition.

Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia’s largest Tibetan Buddhist temple, was decked out to celebrate the day commemorating the birth, Enlightenment and parinirvana of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni.

来自马来西亚各地的一千余名善信在克切拉禅修林一起共沾法喜,庆祝卫塞节。今年的卫塞节主题是“发善心,行善举”。克切拉为善信安排了一整天的活动,让虔诚的善信们欢喜行善及累积功德。由于当日的庆典是以西藏传统的方式进行,除了善信前来之外,也吸引了非佛教徒前来体验卫塞节。

克切拉禅修林是马来西亚藏传佛教最大的寺院。为了这一殊胜的日子,克切拉上下特别精心布置场地,以庆祝释迦牟尼佛的诞生,成道以及涅盘。

Starting from 8 a.m. in the morning, 28 devotees began the day virtuously by taking the Eight Mahayana Precepts, committing themselves to a day or more of virtuous living by not killing, not stealing, abstaining from sexual intercourse and not taking any intoxicants; to being mindful and not telling lies; to being humble by not sleeping in high beds, not wearing perfume and not eating past noon. The Eight Mahayana Precepts is a popular and widespread Buddhist practice especially on auspicious days such as Wesak.

从早上8时开始,28名善信在这个殊胜的日子受持八关斋戒:持不杀生、不偷窃、不非梵行、不饮酒、不妄语;不坐卧大床、不香花曼庄严其身,亦不歌舞倡伎、不非时食。八关斋戒是佛教非常流行和广泛的修行之一,善信可在吉祥的日子受持这些戒条,尤其是卫塞节。

Another common and popular Wesak Day activity is animal liberation. Saving animals from a life of captivity is given new meaning when the ceremony is held in the natural surroundings of Kechara Forest Retreat, surrounded by tropical forests and misty green hills.

放生也是卫塞节的例常活动之一。在克切拉禅修林这片被大自然环绕的土地放生拯救生命,让这个活动更具非凡意义。

A unique aspect of Wesak Day in Kechara is the Children’s Baptism. The practice, which was started by Kechara’s founder and spiritual guide, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, allows babies and children under 18 to receive the blessings of the Three Jewels, to be under the protection of Buddha Shakyamuni, and to cultivate the wisdom of Manjushri to increase mental faculties. 24 lucky children were blessed in this year’s Children’s Baptism held at Wisdom Hall, the main prayer hall of Kechara Forest Retreat.

克切拉在卫塞节举办另一个独特的活动,就是儿童佛化洗礼仪式。儿童佛化洗礼仪式的传统,是由克切拉的创办人——尊贵的第廿五世詹杜固仁波切创办。透过这项佛化洗礼仪式,18岁以下的婴儿、小孩和少年将能受到佛、法、僧的加持,并且得以培养文殊菩萨的智慧增强学习、增长智慧。今年,一共有24名幸运的孩子在克切拉禅修林智慧殿接受儿童佛化洗礼。

Other highlights inside Wisdom Hall were Buddha Bathing, offering gold leaf to the Fasting Buddha, sutra writing, mantra recitation and pastor blessings. Two special Wesak pujas were also held in Wisdom Hall – a Lama Chopa puja in the morning and in the afternoon, a Sixteen Arhats puja. Both pujas honour the qualities and deeds of the Buddha and other enlightened beings, praising them and invoking their blessings to cleanse us of impurities and guide us towards life in eternal paradise.

智慧殿里的其他活动包括浴佛、为佛陀像贴金箔、抄经、心咒念诵及讲法师加持。两场特别的法会也在智慧殿中进行:上午的上师荟供法会,以及下午的十六罗汉法会。这两场法会赞颂佛菩萨圆满的品质及修行,祈请诸佛菩萨加持我们、净化我们的恶业,并引导我们走向佛净土。

Outside Wisdom Hall, canopies were erected and decorated with colourful Tibetan prayer flags. Lending a festive atmosphere to the day, the outdoor car park was transformed into a mini festival ground that had a bazaar, air-conditioned lounge, centre for blood donation and a vegetarian food festival.

From local Bentong entrepreneurs selling homegrown and homemade goods to hipster artisans with art & craft wares, tree-hugging folk with eco-friendly products, and international brands such as Mary Kay and Tiger Balm, these were some of the 58 vendors that made this year’s inaugural Wesak Bazaar a hit with visitors.

智慧殿外搭起的帐篷都挂满了美丽的五彩西藏经幡。为了增加喜庆气氛,户外停车场被改造为小型的市集。除此,市集中还有配备空调的休息室、捐血运动和素食美食节。

今年首次举办的卫塞节市集共有58个单位的商家参与。市集的各个摊位都备受善信和访客们的欢迎。这些商家其中包括文冬当地销售土特产和自制商品的商家,也有售卖时尚手工艺术品、环保产品的商家。国际品牌如玫琳凯(Mary Kay)和虎标万金油也前来摆摊。

The biggest and most popular section of the outdoor festival area was the Vegetarian Food Festival. Held for the first time, visitors to Wesak 2019 at Kechara Forest Retreat were spoilt for choice with an outdoor food gallery featuring vendors serving an assortment of meals, snacks and desserts to keep bellies full and energy levels replenished for the entire day’s activities. The crowd especially loved the complimentary vegetarian nasi lemak courtesy of Kechara Oasis vegetarian restaurant and the two food trucks, Llaollao and GB Vegetarian Burger. Llaollao’s food truck was completely sold out of their famous frozen yoghurt by three o’clock in the afternoon while GB Vegetarian Burger’s food truck had long queues lining up for their on-the-spot freshly cooked burgers.

当天最大和最受欢迎的户外活动非素食美食节莫属。由克切拉禅修林举办的首届卫塞节市集有一个户外的美食区,由商贩们提供各式各样的美食、小吃和甜品,以确保善信和访客们吃饱喝足,精力充沛的参与一整天的活动。大家都特别喜欢由克切拉如意轩免费提供的素椰浆饭、以及Llaollaod的冷冻酸奶和GB的素汉堡。知名品牌Llaollao的冷冻酸奶在下午3时前已售罄。至于GB的摊位,善信和访客们必须排队等候才能买到新鲜烹饪出炉的素汉堡。

With kind support from Bentong Hospital, Kechara organised its first Blood Donation Drive in Kechara Forest Retreat. In an air-conditioned marquee, staff from Bentong Hospital’s blood bank department set up their equipment and counters to screen and collect blood from selfless donors who came to give of themselves to save the lives of others. Bentong’s District Health Office also supported our Wesak event by providing free health screening for Body Mass Index (BMI), blood pressure, blood sugar, health counselling and referrals. There was even a mobile clinic on site.

在获得彭亨州文冬医院的支持之下,克切拉禅修林举办首次的捐血运动。文冬医院血库工作人员在设有空调的大帐篷内安置医疗设备和柜台,以便检查及收集由无私奉献捐血者的血液。为表支持克切拉举办的卫塞节庆典,文冬卫生局为大家提供免费的健康检查服务,其中就包括检测身体质量指数(BMI)、血压、血糖和其他健康咨询。除此,现场也有流动医疗服务。

Towards the end of the day’s activities, a vegetarian vow ceremony was held in Wisdom Hall where a group of 33 people gathered to commit to a duration of eating no meat. This is a deed that is not only virtuous but also promotes healthy and sustainable living. Living healthily and sustainably via vegetarianism is one of the leading life philosophies held by the community living and working in Kechara Forest Retreat.

随着活动逐渐接近尾声,33位善信集合在智慧殿,一起受持持素戒。这个善举不仅带来无量功德,甚至可以促进健康及可持续性的生活模式。透过吃素来保持健康及可持续性的生活模式更是克切拉禅修林社群的生活理念之一。

    This event is really out of my expectation as previous way the Buddhist celebrate their Wesak is just only praying and parade on the street. This event brought a lot of knowledge and fun to buddhists and visitors, especially to the children. I believed that they have learnt the Buddhist knowledge deeply as Kechara promoted Buddhist in such way!

    It’s a blessed day that Kechara organised an spiritual event during Wesak Day at Kechara Forest Retreat. The event starting as early as 8am for devotees to take Eight Mahayana Precepts and continue with animal liberation and many more activities inside and outside Wisdom Hall. many people also visited the holy places to circumambulation, recite mantra, making offering and taking picture. Many people participate in the activities on this auspicious day where Kechara provide the opportunity for the public to collect merits during this special occasion at Bentong, Pahang. This a great moment for creating the opportunity to benefit many people and get the people closer to the Buddha’s teaching and practice. Great appreciation to H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche for creating Kechara Forest Retreat this wonderful place to benefit many people.

    We should be grateful we have a wonderful ‘job’ at Kechara benefitting so many beings. And we will grow to benefit more. No outside job can equal the merits, bliss, happiness and benefits of what we do here. We are lucky to be working in the dharma. We should always work in the dharma and treasure it. Never lose this opportunity as dharma’s benefits are great in this and future lives.

    Tsem Rinpoche

    the above statement was shared by Rinpoche few months ago and I find this statement very true, we may have higher pay job out there, we may live very comfortably out there, we may get to travel very often, but then what do we gained out of it? I have seen many people who are wealthy but yet, it did not eliminate their suffering, some even feel lost in their life, they find their life very empty and with no meaning.

    Im very fortunate to be working in Kechara for the past 10 years, I never regretted coming in to a temple to work as I find this is the most meaningful job I have ever worked in my entire life.

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us this opportunity to do something so meaningful and beneficial in our life, and thank you the Wesak event committee who has been working so hard for days to make this event so happening, Im very fortunate to be part if this and seeing so many coming in to Kechara Forest Retreat to get blessing by the 3 Jewels, it really lighted my heart, although the whole day event is really tiring, but I felt contented and satisfying because I know I have done something good in my life.

    Just like what Steve Jobs has said:
    Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me

  4. Yee Yin on Jul 14, 2019 at 5:35 pm

    I rejoice for Kechara and the people who had been to Kechara Forest Retreat to make offerings to the 3 Jewels on this auspicious day. It takes Rinpoche and many Kecharians’ hard work to bring Kechara to where it is today. Kechara Forest Retreat is a perfect place for people to collect merits and purify negative karmas. In fact, these are the reasons Kechara Forest Retreat is built.

    I remember reading the history of Kechara Organisation, Rinpoche started from giving teachings in students’ houses to 20-30 people until today, thousands of people can gather together to do meritorious activities. This is not easy, only with dedication and great compassion can one achieve this. As a Buddhist monastery, public fund is very much needed to maintain this holy place and to benefit ourselves and other people. Therefore, if we can, we should support Kechara financially. It can be by making regular offerings or monetary donations.

    Wow, a wonderful day to remember has it was my first experiencing to participate on a Wesak Day. I felt very proud and lucky in participating in the most important festival in the largest Tibetan Buddhist Temple in Malaysia. I did not want to miss the opportunity to experience the joy of the religious ceremony.

    Overall, Wesak Day at Kechara was very peaceful, smooth with overwhelming visitors of multi races. A day full of spiritual events and activities with both fulfilling, fun and joy.. I was so much fascinated to witness such a beautiful spiritual ceremony, full of tradition and rituals which shows the Buddhist faith and belief.

    I enjoyed my day there with friends and family members and hoping to participate in the future Wesak Days.

    It was such a memorable Wesak as we celebrated with so many merits making activities. Truly heartwarming to see so many people from different walks of life and from different parts of this region and overseas, coming to Kechara Forest Retreat to celebrate this holy day. The unique part about Kechara’s Wesak is the Children Baptism where young babies, kids and teens were blessed and placed under the care of The Three Jewels.

    Must say that this was my BEST Wesak ever!

  7. Samfoonheei on Jul 3, 2019 at 11:47 am

    Wesak Day is a Holy Day for Buddhists. In fact, it is considered the holiest day in the Buddhist Calendar. Wesak Day, which commemorates the birth, enlightenment , and death of Gautama Buddha. Buddhists all over the world commemorate events of significance to Buddhists of all traditions. Buddhists began to visit temples nationwide early in the morning to carry out religious rituals and pay homage to the Buddha.
    Here at Kechara Forest Retreat ,is no exception this year the Wesak celebration offers visitors a unique Tibetan way. A lively yet modest atmosphere filled the air when they to visit Kechara Forest Retreat at Bentong. Many visitors spend the whole sacred day, meditating, chanting prayers, offerings , blood donation drive, Sutra writing, animal liberation , and many other meritorious activities. Great to see many turn up for this auspicious day about thousands. A very good response this year. Many of them both young and old took the opportunity queued patiently to take turns to bathe the Buddha statue, which is a special ritual that represents the purification and cleansing of one’s soul.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing of Wesak day celebrations at Kechara Forest retreat.

  8. Ummamageswari on Jul 1, 2019 at 1:07 pm

    Thank you so much for this article. Kechara Forest Retreat which is the Malaysia’s largest Tibetan Buddhist temple, was decked out to celebrate Wesak Day. This article is mainly about what happened on that celebrations in details.

    What attracted me on the Wesak Day in Kechara is the Children’s Baptism. The practice, allows babies and children under 18 to receive the blessings of the Three Jewels. Thank you.

  9. Sofi on Jul 1, 2019 at 12:51 pm

    It was so wonderful to see so many people filling this holy land of the Buddhas with spiritual activities, in celebration of Buddha’s enlightenment. There are also many other activities to fill the day. Children love to visit our spacious aviary where the birds greet you with their calls. Plenty of food stalls to try from, some household, garden and kitchen items for sale, and of course, plenty of prizes to be won.
    Thank you Rinpoche for creating a special place with so much blessings and the team for managing the successful event.

  10. Lin Mun on Jun 30, 2019 at 10:26 pm

    It was indeed an interesting Wesak Day in Kechara Forest Retreat this year. We celebrated the holy and virtuous day with lots of activities, dharma sharing and fun . It was also a great experience to participate as a volunteer and share the happiness with the kids in the children’s corner. May everyone be blessed on the auspicious day and hope they will bring their family and friends to visit Kechara Forest Retreat more often.

  11. Tsa Tsa Ong on Jun 30, 2019 at 2:28 pm

    We should share with more people about this piece of article, to let more know about this fact; thus more awareness are able to be created; more helps are able to extend to these animals; or less cruelty are being done to them.

    This is good article to bring out the awareness of how human cause the death of these animals where the animals are not capable to escape from the trap and captivity set up by human race.Thank you very much for sharing this article.

    Mother nature is truly amazing, there are a lot of interesting places in the world to discover and explore and this unique island of Japan and home to a majority of the population Okinawa is truly wonderful.

    Thank you for the interesting sharing of Okinawa, hope to visit the great place and witness live of the famous Naha Tug-of-War Festival. I loved all the photos shared especially the yummy foods, the fascinating Yokusendo Cave, traditional Okinawa Craft Village and the secret of Abu Park.

    Wow….In Thailand, priority seats are given to Buddhist monks, that’s wonderful. Monks in Thailand are well respected by many with the majority of Thailand practising Buddhism. We could see monks everywhere in Thailand. Most public transport in Bangkok has seats marked for monks. We used to see signage board stating elderly persons, disabled persons, pregnant women, and children were given priority. Priority seats have been designated in public transport vehicles such as train, bus monorail and other transport operators . It rare to see signage should yield their seat to the monks. I have yet come across such signage yet in Malaysia.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Meeting Rinpoche and receiving gifts such as Green Tara tsa tsa is indeed so fortunate. Due to Rinpoche generousity, helpful and compassionate nature, Rinpoche will always have gifts with him while travelling. Hence where Rinpoche goes and meeting any people around, Rinpoche will surely share Dharma and giving out gifts. LeeAnn the lady owner of Early Bird restaurant in Willow Creek, North California whom Rinpoche met had received Green Tara tsa tsa. Thank you for the wonderful sharing .

    While this is a scary thoughts to discover the common hazards in our homes comes from our convenient purchase of household products. Many of us know that, household products, including cleaning supplies often contain agents that can be very harmful to us and stored them safe to help protect our kids without realizing our health actually.

    Thanks you for the article sharing, it’s great to understand health and wellness is not simply about diet and exercise, but be aware of the exposure to toxic that applies in our daily life. I’m aware of all the items shared and will take action to limit and remove them. If possible will try to explore further to replace with natural alternatives.

    Urgelling Monastery is a small Buddhist monastery in Arunachal Pradesh, northeastern India, a recognized region of the Indian subcontinent. Wow….this place is the birth place of Tsangyang Gyatso, the Sixth Dalai Lama. It was established in the 15th century with amazing story behind the monastery such as the walking sticks of the Sixth Dalai Lama. The monastery is indeed of great historic importance, for the people of Buddhist faith. A beautiful and scared place to go for pilgrimage . Looking at the beautiful pictures tells us all.

    In the Buddhist tradition, the purpose of taking refuge is to awaken from confusion and associate oneself with wakefulness. The first step in practicing Buddhism is taking refuge in the Three Jewels. Taking refuge means relying on these Three Jewels so that they become the main focus of our lives. Once we have taken refuge in the Three Jewels, we should not take refuge in any other religion nor blend Buddhism and other religions. Taking refuge is a matter of commitment and acceptance and, at the same time, of openness and freedom. By taking the refuge vow we commit ourselves to freedom and to give up our attachment to basic security. Go all the way nor matter what happened along the way to achieve our ultimate goal in our spiritual path. Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The heartbreak of grief is the hardest. The death of a loved one who was a meaningful part of our life can absolutely lead to significant shifts. Those people in deep sorrow at the loss of a loved one need mental support and a lift up. Having Rinpoche blessing the mind of the deceased and let them have a …good rebirth is really beautiful indeed. That’s the time the family of the departed needs most the company of friends and so forth. The behind scenes of Rinpoche did was really touching not only the Dharma teachings, Rinpoche will go all the way to help the deceased family, spending every minute of every day thinking, working and acting for the benefit of all around him and many of whom he hardly knows.
    Thank you Seng PIow for sharing the look behind the scenes of what Rinpoche does.

    Meditation has been shown to have mental benefits, such as improved concentration, happiness, memory, self-control, academic performance and more to go. Even researchers found that meditation may have other health benefits as well, including improved metabolism, heart rate, respiration, and blood pressure .Consistent practice over the long-term can boost our empathy, resilience and compassion too. Having just ten minutes is good enough for us all and powerful.
    Its good to do death meditation when we still have the time now. Visualizing our bodies actually decaying and on death will be good. It is a good practice to do so before the time is up.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful teachings.

    Tibetan sacred dance, Tibetans referred to as a journey into the religious and folk traditions. Tibetan culture of oracular trance has a great significance as them, where the Tibetans will seek divine help and blessing. Tibet was one of the few places where traditions continued virtually untouched and unspoilt. They do believe the spirits descend from the mountains and enter the bodies of mediums who have inherited the role, celebrated in all the villages. On that day the villagers will dressed up colourfully to welcome the Mountain Gods and join in the dances as well.
    Reading this interesting article tells us more the Tibetans do practice spirit worship centuries ago, so as the Tibetan oracles been practice . The Tibetan Leadership believes that Dorje Shugden is a spirit , hence why not they ban all these mountain gods spirit worship too. Dorje Shugden is definitely not a spirit but a Dharma Protector bound by oath. Dorje Shugden is being used as a scapegoat by the Tibetan Leaderships for their own agenda.
    Thank you Rinpoche, for this insightful 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.
    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
