On Sunday 31 January, Bro. Aggaphala Yap conducted the third session of the ‘Svagatam’ Induction Programme, continuing the Dhamma theme on ‘Sāmaggī’ (concord) within the family.

Participants took part in activities which enabled them to think more deeply about their relationships with family members and how to appreciate their loved ones better. In one of the exercises, participants wrote letters to their loved one to express their gratitude and appreciation for them.

Participants understood that when they were grateful to their family members on a deeper level, the tendency for criticism vanishes, and hence there is more unity and harmony at home.  We thank Bro. Aggaphala for his Dhamma sharing which was an apt reminder to all of us for this festive season. Sadhu anumodana!
