ACE?

ACE signifies our conviction that the Budhdist faith can help youths achieve excellence and success in their daily lives.

WHY THE LION?

The lion is the king of the jungle and the Buddha has on occasions, “represents himself as the stateley lion and to describe his proclamation of the Dhamma, bold and thunderous, as a veritable lions roar in the spiritual domain”. The animal also symbolizes courage and bravery and we hope that Buddhist youths in Singapore will stand firmly by their faith. The roar of the lion is majestic and commands respect by its counterparts, just like how we want our youths to take pride of their Buddhist faith and take the lead in sharing the teachings to their peers and in doing good in the society.
