It depends where you are in the world as to what takes place in a temple on special occassions (births, deaths, opening a new shop, blessing a new car etc.) Meditation retreats were initially for pilgrims and have more and more become aimed at backpackers traveling through Asia to 'find themselves' (snigger!). Most practicing Buddhists would be aware of the work of the retreats but only attend one themselves maybe once in their lives for a few days only. A retreat concerns itself with the spiritual side of being, a temple has to also include the day to day physical needs of those living in the temple and surrounding area. It usually comes down to money and being passive participants to a lot of Pali chanting, which even the chanters hardly understand! Oh well....
