Medicine Buddha Hill is a sanctuary bestowing inner and outer healing. A place to advance and facilitate your spiritual growth.

Medicine Buddha Hill is nestled in the deep mountains of Bentong, Pahang (Malaysia), away from the urban sprawl, yet easy to reach. The height of the Medicine Buddha statue will be 15 ft tall, the Medicine Buddha is invoked for healing physical illnesses, as well as to pacify the inner afflictions of desire, anger and ignorance.

Medicine Buddha Hill is part of Kechara Forest Retreat project envisioned by our Spiritual Guide, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche. The presence of a Medicine Buddha statue not only blesses us, our mind but also animals and the environment.

Medicine Buddha Hill is a unique and environmentally conscious centre where Tibetan Buddhist teachings, retreats, healing activities such as Tai Chi and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) will be offered. Pilgrimages to Medicine Buddha Hill are most encouraged, nourishing both visitors and the Kecharian community worldwide.

Planned Facilities

Walking and circumambulation paths with prayer wheels
A metal cylindrical “wheel” with Kuan Yin’s mantra Om Mani Padme Hum is written in Sanskrit on the exterior. Inside the wheel are thousands more rolled mantras. Placed along the walking meditation and circumambulations paths around Tara Walk, Medicine Buddha Hill and Manjushri Hill.

Healing Center with TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) Facilities.
Conceptualized by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, the Healing Center brings Medicine Buddha’s healing energy to LIFE. Traditional Chinese Medicine, Alternative and Holistic healing facilities are intended here where people from everywhere can come for healing externally as well as internally.

Retreat Pavilions for long term retreatants
H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has always wished to have local yogis and yoginis, so these Pavillions will be ideal for those who are more serious and wish to take their practice to another level. It will be suitable for short or long term solitary retreats as it is a private space surrounded by nature, creating a conducive environment for one to focus.

Retirement Home
H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s care for others has always been a top priority and this place will be dedicated solely towards the beautiful senior Kecharians who have devoted their entire life to Dharma, to benefit others. This is a place where they can retire, where they can find peace to continue their spiritual path, where they can call home.

Tara Walk
Situated at the base of Medicine Buddha Hill, a walkway for walking meditation through a long trellis covered by creepers and plants.
This serene meditation path is affectionately named “Tara” Walk by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche as there will be 21 emanations of Tara strategically placed along the path so that pilgrims will receive the divine blessings of 21 Taras (Mother of all Buddhas) as they walk along the path.

Camping Platforms
Built for campers and nature loving adventure seekers to easily set up their tents. This would be an ideal environment for camping with mother nature.
