Dorje Shugden Procession in Bentong Town

Aug 9, 2016 | Views: 65

9 August 2016 was another major milestone for Kechara Buddhist Organisation as we had the privilege to participate in Bentong’s annual Hungry Ghost Festival Procession under the invitation of Bentong Chai Shen Temple (Wealth God Temple) in Kampung Ulu Perting.

Many Bentong folks eagerly waited outside the temple for the procession to start

This annual event takes place in Bentong during the Hungry Ghost Festival for the people of Bentong to propitiate and make offerings to the Chinese wealth gods. The procession started from Chai Shen Temple in Kampung Ulu Perting at 6pm and went through Bentong’s main streets before ending at 10:30pm.

More than 50 Kecharians participated in this historical procession where an estimated 5,000 people filled the streets to catch a glimpse of Dorje Shugden, also known as “Chai Wang” to the locals, leading the procession followed by other Chinese wealth deities such as Kuan Kong, Chai Shen and Wu Chai Shen. Mediums were also part of the procession, taking trance of Chinese wealth deities to bless the Bentong folks. During the procession, Kecharians distributed Dorje Shugden cards, leaflets, pendants, posters and photos as gifts to connect the people of Bentong with World Peace Protector, Dorje Shugden.

What is heartwarming is the acceptance and religious harmony seen in this procession, where Buddhist and Taoist practices co-exist side by side with the sole aim of bring blessings to all.

In Bentong (Malaysia), the town we live in and where Kechara Forest Retreat is, we have built a public chapel to Dorje Shugden for the locals. They really love it. Many locals like to come early in the morning to make offerings and special prayers to Dorje Shugden then go to work. The locals have reported many of their prayers being fulfilled from praying to Dorje Shugden at this chapel. As a result, more are joining in to pray to powerful Dorje Shugden the world peace protector who is no other than Manjushri. That is beautiful. ~Tsem Rinpoche

I am not liked by everyone because I choose to not give up my practice of Dorje Shugden even when I am threatened, segregated, hated, degraded and accused of all manner of things just for it. But at least I kept my promise to my guru to practice Dorje Shugden 30 years ago. I am a person that keeps my promises. My respect for integrity makes me who I am. ~ Tsem Rinpoche - Follow H.E.

We have many outdoor sacred images of various Buddhas. The ones that were visited were Tsongkapa, Nageshvaraja, Loma Gyoma, Tara, Nagarakshasa and then back to Tsongkapa. At each location circumambulations and lamp offerings were done. We walked the vast land while chanting Migtseyma mantras. The very elderly followed to each location in cars. Kechara Forest retreat is 70 acres of land located in rural Bentong, one hour from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. ~Tsem Rinpoche For more information: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com
