A pro tem committee meeting was held and headed by Chen Jing Song to establish Bukit Beruang Buddhist Society at 393-C, Taman Bunga Raya, Bukit Beruang on 17 September 1984.
The pro tem committee submitted the application document to the Registrar of Societies of Malaysia (ROS) on on 22 April and 28 June 1985 and approval was granted on 28 August 1985. The founding committee were Wong Chong Zhi, Ngo Kim Hua, Gan Siew Jeen, and Chew Nan Chang.
The first Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held on 12 Oct 1985 with Chen Jing Song as the President, Goh Jia Chong as Vice President and Ong Chin Poh as Secretary. At that time, the constitution was based on the constitution of Centre of Humanistic Buddhism Malacca. A shop house was rented to be the center with the donation from members.
In 1993, a new building was bought at 668-N and 668-N/1, Taman Bukit Melaka, Bukit Beruang. A total of RM233,000 was raised from four Fundraising Dinners. On 7 July 1996, the Society invited Ven. Jing Ming, the Society’s Spiritual Patron, to officiate the Buddha statue. In 1988, the Society formed the Sunday Dharma School, with a total of 40 students. In 2002, the number of students increased to 160. Due to substantial rise in the number of students, a fund raising dinner was held in 2002 to raise fund to build new classrooms.
The Society also planned to build the Noble Care Centre in 2004. The working committee was formed on 12 Dec 2005 and the groundbreaking ceremony was launched on 2 Sept 2006. The building was completed with a total cost of RM400,000 and officially open on 25 Nov 2007.
The idea of the Noble Care Centre is to provide welfare and support in accordance with the teachings of Buddha’s compassion, loving-kindness and harmony. The Noble Care Centre has been doing its best to contribute to the community regardless of race, practising compassion with equality and carrying out the positive and humane outlook of Buddhism. Noble Care Centre provides financial support for the needy, education financial aid to the poor students and assistance such as hospice and psychological counseling to those who seek help.
Four (4) groups have been set up, namely, Noble Care Fund Group, Hospice Group, Counseling Group and Medical Group. Each year, the Noble Care Fund will allocate a sum of money to help the poor to ease their burden of living.
Noble Care Fund has helped countless families. At present, the fund supports 11 households continuously throughout the year. One of them has benefited from the fund for 24 years. The monthly support fund has increased from RM80 to the current RM200. Since 2014, Noble Care Fund Group has worked hard to promote the concept of helping the needy. The fund also allocates RM8,000 a year to subsidise two Pay Fong High School students who are from low income households.
Besides, Noble Care Centre also provides free Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) clinic on every Sunday from 2pm – 4pm. The total monthly expenses for the Noble Care Centre are about RM 7,000-8,000. In addition, Bukit Beruang Buddhist Society also donated the fund collected from the 31st Anniversary to the local Chinese primary schools which included SJK(C) Ayer Keroh, SJK(C)Wen Hua, SJK(C)Ker Seng, SJK(C)Bukit Beruang, SJK(C)Tiang Dua and SJK(C)Lih Jen.
