Notes and Events:


Buddhist Gem Fellowship or commonly known as BGF started in 1980’s to promote the growth of Buddhism and create a better world for all beings. We started as a “Graduate Fellowship” but change the name to “Gem” to look into growing needs of our community.


Every year thousands of young Buddhists graduate from universities and colleges, but their talents go untapped. This was a big loss to the Buddhist community. Without new ideas and involvement from graduates, Buddhist societies could only run routine activities that attract a small crowd.

BGF was formed to redress this problem back then. Its purpose was to gather young graduates as well as working professionals for spiritual friendship and enhance their knowledge and skills for Dhamma work. Since then, BGF has grown from strength to strength and embraces all various groups. Our roots are in the Pali Tradition and we are non-sectarian in our approach.


We started in a single storey house in Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya and moved 6 times. Our former location for 14 years was in Section 17, Petaling Jaya (bordering SS2). We have moved for the 7th time to our new permanent home, BGF @ Ara Damansara since Wesak 2014. Come visit us!


BGF plays a pivotal role to bring about the "Transformation of the Malaysian Buddhist community". Our motto is “Growing People, Inspiring the Future”. For over a quarter century, BGF has been nurturing Buddhist leaders. It organizes many programs with impact on Buddhist communities within the country as well as internationally. BGF also organizes camps for undergraduates, trains leaders to speak effectively in public, runs courses on counselling skills, and conducts training courses for Dhamma speakers. It runs weekly meditation sessions and organizes talks and public forums by local and international Dhamma speakers. Its innovative programs and approaches are adopted by other groups within as well as outside the country. Many of its early members had pioneered the formation of other Buddhist societies in the country.


We plan to transform the Malaysian Buddhist community through our "Eight Areas of Focus".


We focus on eight core areas of activities that will paved the way for the transformation of the Malaysian Buddhist community. They are:

i) Buddhist Education

ii) Counselling Services

iii) Creative & Performing Arts

iv) Dhamma Propagation

v) Research and Publication

vi) Spiritual Development

vii) Training & Leadership

viii) Youth Development

Notes and Events:


In November 1992, a young man attended the Sunday morning Puja at the Subang Jaya Buddhist Association made an interesting observation. He noticed that there were many adults and children, but hardly any teenagers. This sparked a thought: what SJBA really needed was a section catering for youths to gather and interact while learning the Dhamma. Inspired by this idea, he gathered a group of teenagers and established the SJBA Youth Section. The year was 1993. Over the years, this section grew leaps and bounds under the guidance of that very young man, our dynamic founder and first chairperson, Bro. Ong Beng Chung, and subsequently, his successors who followed. In 1997, we decided to expand our gatherings into two separate sessions in order to fulfill and cater to the needs of two different age groups.

The Young Seekers Gathering, held on Friday night, caters primarily to college or university students and young working adults. Dhamma programs and activities are planned by a committee focusing on members spiritual development. The younger members, however, were given a different approach. Based on the concept of "by the members for the members", our Sundays Teen Quest Gathering sees a vibrant committee running the show with close guidance from their older brothers and sisters in the Youth Section itself. Having a younger committee often translates to having more creative and interesting Dhamma-based programs.

Besides our weekly gatherings that gives the much needed emphasis on Dhamma, our members also take up various projects such as camps, exhibitions, fellowship outings, and welfare activities. Having to take up the responsibility of planning and organizing these projects, our members embark on the practical approach to learning important living-skills such as peers-interaction, social and communication as well as leadership skills.

Through encouraging active participation and continual trainings, we hope to mold our members into responsible and capable Buddhist leaders of tomorrow. Ultimately, when they participate, we also hope that they will come to love and have faith in the Triple Gem and learn how to apply the Dhamma in their daily lives.


  1. To instill the love for learning, practicing and propagating the Buddha-Dhamma as to cater for the spiritual needs of the individuals.
  2. To build individuals with a socially-engaged attitude as to cater for the social needs of the individuals, the families and the society at large.
  3. To provide a conducive environment for the development of academic excellence among members.
  4. To implement a systematic Buddhist training and development programme for the members.


Towards a strong and committed youth group to cater for an integrated enhancement of an individuals overall quality with the Triple Gem as the members Supreme Guide.
