Religious Education
Buddhism is a path of spiritual practice and development leading to insights into the true nature of life and the ultimate goal of Enlightenment – a state of liberation and freedom from suffering.We have lined up a series of religious educational programmes targeted at dharma propagation for the benefit of all Buddhists who want to achieve purity of the heart and mind in their practice of the bodhisattva way of life.Upcoming activities include:

  • Liturgy classes
  • Dharma talks in Mandarin and English conducted by local and foreign reverends
  • Music classes on Chinese Buddhist hymns
  • Speech and drama classes involving religious plays for children and youths
  • Temporary ordination for children and youths aged between 8 and 18

We are appealing for sponsorships of $50, $100 and $200 to underwrite the costs of organising these activities. All contributions will fund the development and enrichment of such educational initiatives.
