TRANSFORMERS 2024

Teenage Dhamma Class

Embark on a transformative journey with us as we believe fervently in the power of Dhamma to shape our children into wise, intelligent, and compassionate beings. Our vision is to illuminate their paths, enabling them to radiate that light to others and create a wholesome environment for all to live peacefully and happily. Committed to this vision, we dedicate ourselves to the Dhamma education of the younger generation.

Dhamma, far from blind faith, is a path of exploration and understanding. It thrives on free thought and the power of investigation. We encourage our young minds to question, analyze, and scrutinize the Dhamma, fostering rational faith in the Triple Gem. (Saddha)

Emphasizing ethical behavior and moral principles rooted in Wisdom and Compassion, we reject a mere ‘code of do’s and don’ts.’ Buddha’s teachings on the four sublime attitudes – love, compassion, appreciative joy, and equanimity – not only nurture moral conduct but also pave the way for harmonious living in diverse societies like Singapore. (Sila)

Modern youth face stress, tension, and mental health challenges. Our Buddhist meditation techniques, grounded in Mindfulness and Concentration, offer a constructive approach for addressing these issues, steering them away from the pitfalls of drugs and social media addiction. (Samadhi)

Our ultimate goal is to guide the younger generation on the Noble Eightfold Path, fostering profound wisdom and great compassion. Such individuals are destined to light the path and transform the lives of others. (Panna)

Our Teenage Dhamma Class is crafted for inquisitive young minds, blending the Art of Mind Training with Dhamma Talks that directly address the challenges of teenage life. Join us on this inspiring journey of self-discovery and growth.
