How has the Dharma benefited you?

I apply mindfulness in my daily activities because it helps me in focusing on my work and not to react unnecessarily. Meditation helps me in relaxing my mind.

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

Create the conditions for more people to learn and benefit from the Dhamma.
