Today our invited speaker, Brother Guo Hua shared about how praying to the Manjusri Bodhisattva helped him gain focus and ability to understand what was taught in school.

Auspicious Puja offers the essence of all the practices needed as Buddhists. We sang insightful praises to the Triple Gems, offered lights and learnt more about how simple acts in our daily lives could benefit us for infinite lives and beyond.
Venerable Bensi during the English sesision that making confessions and repenting could benefit us most if we have the right attitudes.
We also had a youth, Yuling who shared about a story about Manjusri Bodhisattva where the Bodhisattva touched the hearts of difficult citizens of a kingdom through observing their merits and appreciating their kindness.
This helped Yuling to appreciate her mom more than she used to and she values this mind turning perspective.
Yuling felt that the Bodhisattva has blessed her in her crucial period the A levels.
Yuling has been in the Youth Lamrim class for the past 8 years.
