The Kechara Forest Retreat was conceptualised by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche as the heart of the Kechara organisation. It will be a place away from the hustle and bustle of the city; where anyone can take a break from our hectic lives and rest, relax and recharge at this beautiful holistic centre.
In the very near future, this will be the place for anyone who wishes to seek spiritual solace and for those who wish to have some time out of their daily city life. The creation of this forest retreat is an instrumental step for getting closer to our ultimate goal, Kechara World Peace Centre (KWPC).
This retreat land is conceptualized in a way to embrace nature, hence the name Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR). The moment you step into KFR, you will be greeted by beautiful fauna and flora unlike other centres in the city. Nestled right in the middle of the land will be a Prayer Hall where everyone can go to make their wishes and prayers, or simply meditate in tranquil surroundings.
It is designed for everyone who seeks inner peace – whether you are spiritually inclined or simply someone seeking solace and a change of environment.
The Kechara Forest Retreat will be a place like no other, nestled in the deep mountains of Chamang, Bentong, about 1 1/2 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur. This village is being created within the green tropical forest, with natural streams of crystal clear water running through it.
Within this lush eco-friendly environment, there will be buildings and features designed for students and visitors to enjoy various activities to calm the mind within the beauty of nature.
The land has been successfully acquired by Kechara House under the leadership of Kechara House President, Datuk May and her team. Datuk May is working hard with her team and everyone else in Kechara to fund raise for the development of the land and servicing of the loan.
Ground works have already begun with the team building a temporary abode for our Lama, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche to live in. With the sheer dedication and hard work of Datuk May and her team, the temporary abode has been constructed, and soon, Rinpoche will frequent the land to do prayers and blessings in preparations for the construction works.
