On December 19 thru December 22nd 1998 The World Spiritual Foundation held a World Congress Retreat at Fraser's Hill just north of Kuala Lumpur, Capital of Malaysia.
Fraser's Hill is 104 km from Kuala Lumpur, and the day I arrived it was raining so hard you could not even see the road. However, when the rain stopped is when the magic began. The mist was floating in the palm trees, and monkeys could be heard high in the tree tops.
This was a most remarkable location to hold this Congree Retreat as it was a top of a 5000 ft. mountain. For all who attended the serenity and the majesty of the Malaysian country side was a perfect backdrop for the next 4 days of meetings and meditations as well as a few social events.
