How has the Dharma benefited you?

The Dharma has shaped me in my personal development and growth to be who am I today. For times when I’m in need for a source of motivation, I’ll seek inspiration from the Buddha’s life story. Indeed, the compassion and joy from the Buddhist faith has always touched me in one way or another.

What is your vision for the future of Buddhism in Singapore?

Firstly, be the Change that we constantly preach – Annicca.
Secondly, embrace change and work with it in order to propagate the Dhamma to the masses.
