记得2017年九月吉祥宝聚寺培训处迎来了长青班约230位总年龄过万岁的阿公阿嬷回到了他们的心灵之家。今年,我又非常荣幸与欢喜的代表文化艺术处参加阿公阿嬷在他们各自的长青班结业!太随喜乐龄组长青五班和乐龄长青六班的干部们与义工团队!

In September 2017, BW Monastery Training and Development Department welcomed 230 senior members of the BW Monastery Evergreen Classes for their first visit to the newly completed monastery in the North! Indeed, I am honoured to see the seniors again this year being invited to attend the Ceremony of their Annual Course Completion! Not one but two classes, namely: Evergreen Class 5 and 6. Mega rejoice to the Cadre team of these two classes!

阿公阿嬷们非常幸福。有一群师父的弟子无怨无悔的为他们而付出!乐龄长青五班由李文明班长,李文杰副班长,陈建才副班长,干部们和义工们关怀代领。乐龄长青六班由陈亚妹班长,黄开娥副班长, 黄天莉副班长,干部们和义工们呵护有佳的拉拔着。

The seniors of the classes are indeed blessed and are a fortunate group to have the unconditional tender loving care of Master and Teacher’s committed disciples who take time to care for these pioneers. Evergreen Class 5 comes under the leadership of Monitor Lee Hong Boon and Assistant Monitors: Lee Woon Khiat and Tan Kiam Chye. Evergreen Class 6 is led by Monitor Tan Ah Moi, Assistant Monitors: Wee Hai Ngoh and Wong Tian Li. These teams care and concern for the elders touched my heart as they are the virtuous friends of the seniors who journey with them patiently on the infinite path of cultivation for the seniors.

我们的吉祥宝聚寺乐龄组还有一班有着炽热的心的护持团队! 那就是陈慧莲组长, 柯慧娟副组长和吴细瑛副组长。他们以一颗无私的爱心,视着他人的父母为自己父母一样尊重与慈爱他们。太随喜赞叹了!

The team is incomplete without the main committee members of the BW Monastery Senior Citizen Group. They consist of Group Leader: Chan Wai Lin and Assistant Group Leaders: Kwa Hui Kuan and Goh Suay Im. Rejoice to this compassionate team who cares and is concerned about the seniors like their own parents. Walking the path of the compassionate Buddhas and Bodhisattvas! Such a beautiful connection!

现在看看老菩萨们多有福报!多幸福!

Now, let’s take a look at how blessed our BW Monastery Senior Citizens Evergreen Classes are!

与老菩萨们一同专心念佛,心中现起朵朵莲花,纯净无暇!随喜赞叹!心中如此平静,声声佛号仿佛传到一切法界,顶礼着慈悲的阿弥陀!

As I chanted Amitabha’s name with the class, I had a vision of huge pure white lotuses blooming in the clear waters of serenity. All was in a harmonious rhythm, faithfully entrusting our hearts to the compassionate Buddha who has aspired to save all who chants his name at their last breath, bringing them to the Western Pureland of bliss and joy! Oh…dear Amitabha…we are grateful to your compassionate great aspiration! With every chant of your name, we pay our deepest homage to the Amitabha Buddha!  Spreading our voices of faith and trust to the universe, praying for all sentient beings to be saved and to achieve ultimate happiness and wisdom!
