BW Monastery Training & Development (T&D) held its inaugural appreciation dinner for its lecturers, monitors and care coordinators last Sunday on 13 Jan 2019.

The event was graced by the Sangha and it was encouraging to hear Abbot Master Jing Yuan’s reminders on how so many of us are contributing relentless to preserve the teachings of the Buddha to benefit all beings, which is rare in modern times but much needed by the society. The role supported by everyone is core to upholding of the teachings.

It was also a timely opportunity for the management committee to be introduced, and for lecturers to be recognized for their efforts and capabilities in propagating the Dharma far and wide. A significant milestone witnessed and rejoiced by all present!

The event ended with a sumptuous buffet dinner where everyone mingled with one another to recollect and share the joy of learning the Dharma in order to benefit all sentient beings. We are definitely looking forward to the next one!

In sum, we are truly grateful to the Triple Gem for providing us with excellent teachers, great environment, and virtuous companions to learn how to abandon sufferings and attain happiness. Come and join us to learn the same!

年终感恩晚宴 干部欢聚一堂

正月十三日这感恩的一天,吉祥寺四楼的聚宝堂,举办了一场“年终感恩晚宴”。 顾名思义借着今晚,吉祥寺要感恩一群默默为弘扬教法、努力付出的勇士。他们是谁呢?大家除了可以一起来赞叹随喜外,也可以发心投入建立教法的行列喔!

我们的大家长净远和尚激励人心的开示,给予在场所有的班干部(正、副班长),正面适时的鼓励。除了肯定大家长期为弘扬大师教法努力不懈,更勉励干部们要以大乘的发心来接引更多有情——这是我们必须要坚持的理想与信念!这番策励,燃起了每位班干部的雄心,肩负起弘扬正法的使命。

晚宴还精心安排了两位讲师——洪瑞迂与潘惠玲讲师,分享她们承担讲师的心路历程;以及两位新任副讲师——黄清海与陈雪妮副讲师,分享他们带班甘苦谈。精彩的分享不时获得台下热烈回响,大家深深感受到他们为了依教奉行、作师所喜而努力突破自我的过程,台下个个皆心有戚戚焉。主办单位还非常用心准备预先录制的影片,一群《广论》班同学分享学习佛法后生命的蜕变,而感谢班长们长期的付出及期许。

透过今天的感恩晚宴,净远和尚说明为了提升班干部的专业形象,今后陆陆续续会将正班长委任为副讲师,以便接引广大的有情来学习大师教法。和尚将委任状以及海螺勋章,慎重地颁发给每位委任者,获颁者有资深讲师陈东荣、现任讲师19位,以及副讲师36位。海螺象征着宣扬法音,此刻无论是获颁者或台下的干部们,任重道远的使命感油然而生——祈愿大师教法恒光耀!
