At CAKKA 2017, they want to show that all of life itself is our classroom for practice. Youth, Work, Family and Silver Age – each aspect of life has different Dhamma lessons to impart, if we let them.

By forming a supportive community and interacting with others facing situations similar to ourselves, CAKKA 2017 aims to kickstart each of our own Dhamma journey and help us find the inspiration we need to practise every waking moment.

Opening Speech by Ven. Seck

Ven. Dr. Rambukewela Gnanaseeha, Ajahn Brahmavamso, Ven. Prof. Dr. K. Dhammasami, Ven. Prof. Geshe Ngawang Samten and Ven. Shi Chuan Guan

Our mind is the window through which we experience the world. We alone have the power to decide what goes inside, but too often we do not exercise it. How do we decide what to admit and take control of our happiness (or lack thereof)?

The session will be moderated by Dr Wong Yin Onn, a lay Dhamma teacher
