From 28 November to 1 December, 80 campers gathered at Pure Karma Buddhist Centre in Ulu Tiram, Johor for Nalanda Teenagers’ Learning Camp themed ‘Step Up’. During the camp, participants learned about the meaning of taking refuge in the Three Jewels, and also about the Buddha’s inspiring life.
The hands-on learning activities focussed on the values of respect and gratitude to help them make wiser decisions and overcome challenges in life. They were introduced to aspects of Buddhist cultivation such as daily meditation, chanting, and reflections.
We thank the Dhamma School facilitators, organisers and volunteers for enabling so many teenagers to learn and experience Dhamma. May the participants continue to develop good values and virtues throughout their lives.
