For the past two days, participants of the on-going Dhamma Living Camp for Young Adults have been immersed in Dhamma living to discover the blessings in life. After arriving yesterday morning, campers have been making new acquaintances and rekindling old friendships. For deeper discussions and reflection, they gathered in their assigned ‘Dhamma families’ for the duration of the camp.
Nalanda founder Bro. Tan expanded on each verse of the Mangala Sutta, and emphasised that blessings do not come with sorrow, grief, fear or anxiety. Blessings bring serenity, comfort and composure. During the Dhamma teachings, many youths took the opportunity to ask questions on overcoming the challenges they face in life, and seek clarification.
We wish the campers continued and diligent learning for the next two days. May they consistently maintain the right conditions to cultivate their minds to be a blessing for oneself and others.
