Learning to ‘Make Wise Choices in Life’ at Dhamma-Living Camp

Learning to ‘Make Wise Choices in Life’ at Dhamma-Living Camp

With much gratitude, we thank the Organising Committee, volunteers and all campers for making this a camp to remember!

From 28 September to 1 October, over 100 participants and volunteers of the Dhamma-Living Camp for Young Adults congregated at Wisdom Park for four days of wholesome learning and service.  Carrying the theme ‘Make Wise Choices in Life’, the campers gradually learned principles taught by the Buddha to help shape their mental attitudes throughout life’s journey.

Reflecting on the purpose of life and the vicissitudes it holds, the youths opened their hearts and minds to Dhamma, and formed deep spiritual friendships.  Through guided mindfulness and loving-kindness meditation sessions, they were motivated to continue exploring these practices because of their own experience of calmness, peace and clarity.

The programme is grounded by meditation and chanting every morning and evening.

Camp participants are in high spirits in learning the Dhamma and supporting their friends.

Camp Master, Sis. Yeoh Wei En, welcomes the campers.

An ice-breaker to warm up participants.

The ‘Spirited team’ raised everyone’s spirits with meaningful songs.

We rejoice in their learning spirit, growth and wholesome experiences.  We also thank the speakers, Camp Organisers, volunteers and supporters for their invaluable contributions.  May we continue on the Dhamma path with good spiritual friends until the final attainment of Nibbana.  Sadhu anumodana!
