The past serves as a learning process but is not within our control anymore.

The present is ours to maximise and the future holds the fruits we have cultivated and to be harvested.

So how did we invest the last day of 2018?


Besides offering lamps, how else can we gain wisdom? The wise and compassionate Buddha has handed down the precious sutras to show the ways. At the Auspicious Light Festival and BW Monastery’s Wisdom Stations, we had many opportunities to activate our grey matter and gain wisdom!

Sutra Copying

My family and I each copied the Chinese Heart Sutra together. So glad to see so many members of our class S15G027E volunteering for the event! Rejoice to all and have a great year ahead in 2019!
