S15G027E is an awesome class!
The majority of the learners are bilingual-speaking working adults and they came with an open mind to elevate their spirituality in our urbanised city, Singapore.
Every Monday night, I look forward to share and interact with them in the Lamrim Discussion Class at the Chinatown district.
We have our sharing and discussions based on the teachings of the Buddha from the Lamrim discourse by Venerable Richang.
I particularly enjoy the vibrant interactions of diverse questions and candid answers during our class discussions.
After more than 2 1/2yrs, I am most happy to learn that most of them are still looking forward to our weekly Monday Lamrim lessons.
In addition, several of them have stepped up as volunteers to contribute their services towards benefiting others and accumulating merits towards their ultimate goal of enlightenment.
They have honoured Buddha’s teachings by doing their best to practise the Dharma in their daily lives. This is the best gift to the Three Jewels.
Rejoice with gratitude! 👏😊💙

* This is the first featured sharing in our launch of a new series: A Practitioner’s Reflection. Tiong Boon is the Monitor of our S15G027E class. He is joined by Sister Serena and Brother Samuel who are our Co-Monitors. The class also has two care co-ordinators who look into the welfare of the students and assist in administrative and logistic matters of the class.
From 2015-2017, we were well-taken care of by care co-ordinators： Jasmine and Angela. In 2018 we continue to have Angela who is joined by Nina as our care co-ordinator. Jasmine currently serves in another volunteer group of BW Monastery. Rejoice!
Starting from 4 June 2018, every Monday morning, we plan to publish a sharing by one of our S15G027E class member.
This series was inspired by our sharing done during our Lamrim Discussion Class when a new student came to join us on 21 May 2018. Often people wonder, what makes people put aside precious time once a week amidst all the busy schedule and commitments to attend the class. Where’s the “magic”, ‘why”, “benefit” or “output”? Let’s hear from the different individuals from all walks of life, sharing their take on this.
In conjunction with 2018 Master’s Remembrance Day, this is also our way to thank our lineage masters for their wisdom and compassion by reflecting on the merits of the teachings and turning the Dharma Wheel by sharing how Dharma has made us a better person.
We hope that more will be inspired to learn the way of the Buddha and practice it in their daily lives.
GRATITUDE TO THE TRIPLE GEMS AND OUR LINEAGE MASTERS!
May sentient beings all be well and happy!
