In general, people are forgetful if they are only given visual and audio aids. However, if these aids are connected through a meaningful manner and touched their hearts, the impression is so much more deeper and lasting.
As such, a group of people will gather on Sundays to offer their voices in song to the Buddha and Bodhisattvas as the Insightful Praises have connected them through the meaning verses with the essence of Dharma and melodious tunes. This group is the BW Monastery Insightful Praise Choir (Group 1).
Through the insightful praises, we gain wisdom as we find concordance with Dharma in song. The moving aesthetic music weaves a special fabric, allowing us to be robed into the logical aspect of Dharma. Through praises, be empowered to listen, contemplate and practice Buddha’s teachings.
The Choir members are deeply thankful to our lineage masters for propagating Dharma through Insightful Praise as it has brought us closer to our faith and allowed us to be connected to Buddha, our teacher spiritually.
Our Insightful Praise Group 1 has prepared a handmade scrapbook with our 2016 group activities photographs and members’ letters to our teachers. We are also offering two sets of LEGO “Birds of Flight”. They signify our sincere soaring hearts to offer our voices in praise.
May we all be able to sing melodious and heavenly tunes of Insightful Praises to benefit all sentient beings.
