On Sunday 10 April, 70 participants of the Dhamma Living Camp 2016 which was held last month at Genting Highlands, gathered at Nalanda Centre for a cheerful ‘reunion’.  It was a happy occasion as the campers greeted each other with great warmth and joy.  Participants said that their experiences at the camp had made a huge difference in their lives, and given their spiritual practice a boost.

Bro. Tan was invited to give a sharing as a follow-up to the profound Dhamma sessions at the camp.  He quoted excerpts from the Ariyapariyesanā Sutta (Majjhima Nikaya No. 26) and the Mittāmacca Sutta (Samyutta Nikaya No. 55.16) to highlight the Buddha’s great compassion in teaching Dhamma for relieving the suffering of many beings.  By popular request, there was also a Q&A session conducted by Bro. Tan to answer some of the questions which were submitted during the camp.
