Come be the light at the Kechara Forest Retreat. Here are some of the ways you can give to our cause.

 

1. Donations in cash or in kind

Every contribution is greatly appreciated – no matter how big or small. We accept donations of any amount via various payment methods including cheque, online payment, bank transfer, via the Tsem Rinpoche Foundation, Inc. or at a donation box at any of Kechara’s premises. For more payment methods, please click here.

Trees and plants are an essential part of the Kechara Forest Retreat, and they require regular maintenance and care. As the forest retreat is on 35 acres of land with various topographies and soil conditions, and a vast variety of flora and fauna, the work needed to maintain this natural forest environment is no small feat.

Please help us maintain this green paradise for many more generations to come. One can sponsor a one off maintenance, 3 months, 6 months or 12 months.

(RM 200)

Trees, grasses and greens are the lungs of the Earth and an essential part of the Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR). In particular, vetiver or Kusha grass is a fast growing and hardy grass that will help stabilize and beautify the environment.

By contributing to the greening of the Kechara Forest Retreat, you are not only helping the environment, but you are also making an offering directly to the Three Jewels as the whole environment is created for growth of the Buddha Dharma.

Trees are available in heights of 1-3ft, 3-5 ft, 5ft-7ft and 7ft to 10ft. Vetiver is available at RM200/6meter square.


(RM 500)

At only RM500 per lot!

  • Sponsors dedication will be inscribed on a blessed mantra. The mantra will be inserted into the main statue in the Shakyamuni World Peace Hall in the Kechara Forest Retreat.
  • You and your loved ones will continuously receive merits as offerings and prayers will be made to Buddha Shakyamuni daily.
  • Sponsors will also receive a double-sided pendant of Buddha Shakyamuni and Medicine Buddha, specially blessed by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche
  • Funds will go towards the cost of the land and building of facilities in Kechara Forest Retreat.


(RM 1,000)

Sponsor a brick to be used in the construction of the Medicine Buddha Hill, an international healing sanctuary within the Kechara Forest Retreat. Your sponsorship will be used to fund the building and construction of this iconic project.

Contributing towards the building of a place of worship, Sangha living quarters or Buddha statues is extremely meritorious. Every sponsor of a Healing Brick will have their name and dedication inscribed on the brick, and prayers and offerings will be dedicated daily on their behalf.


(RM 2,000)

A lifetime of lights offered in your name

  • Your name or dedication will be engraved on the butterlamp holder.
  • Your butterlamp holder will be placed in the butterlamp house at the Kechara Forest Retreat.
  • The offering of light to the Enlightened ones increases wisdom, wealth and creates the causes for a strong and healthy body.
  • You and your loved ones will receive a continuous stream of merits as your butterlamp will be offered to the Buddhas for generations to come.


(RM 5,000)

Contributing towards the building and upkeep of a place of worship is extremely meritorious. Bring home a blessed statue of Buddha Shakyamuni with every sponsorship of RM5,000 towards the building and maintenance of the Kechara Forest Retreat, and give the gift of protection and blessings to your loved ones.


(RM 10,000)

Sponsor a Medicine Buddha statue, which will be placed at key locations on the Medicine Buddha Hill, an international healing sanctuary within the Kechara Forest Retreat. Your sponsorship will be used to fund the building and construction of this iconic project.

Contributing towards the building of a place of worship, Sangha living quarters or Buddha statues is extremely meritorious. Every sponsor of a Medicine Buddha statue will have their name and dedication inscribed on the base of the statue. Prayers and offerings will be dedicated daily on their behalf, thus bringing the benefits of long life, purification of negativities and creating a powerful connection with the Medicine Buddha for healing in times of need.


(RM 25,000)

Sponsor a traditional Tibetan prayer wheel, to be placed along walking meditation and circumambulations paths around Tara Walk, Medicine Buddha Hill and Manjushri Hill within the Kechara Forest Retreat. Your sponsorship will be used to fund the building and construction of this iconic project.

Contributing towards the building of a place of worship, Sangha living quarters or Buddha statues is extremely meritorious. Every sponsor of a Prayer Wheel will have their name inscribed on the prayer wheel. Each turn of the wheel is equivalent to reciting thousands of mantras, thus collecting tremendous merits and good karma for the sponsor on a daily basis.
