Discovering Buddhism 2021

About this event

“What is Buddhism? Is it a religion or a way of life? How do we apply Buddhism in our daily lives?”

“Learning without practice is of no worth.

Though much he recites the Sacred Texts, but acts not accordingly, that heedless man is like a cowherd who counts others’ kine. He has no share in the fruits of the Holy Life.

Though little he recites the Sacred Texts, but acts in accordance with the teaching, forsaking lust, hatred and ignorance, truly knowing, with mind well freed, clinging to naught here and here-after, he shares the fruits of the Holy Life.”

Organiser The Buddhist Library

Organiser of Discovering Buddhism 2021

Started in 1983 as Singapore’s first public Buddhist book service, the Buddhist Library (BL) aims to promote a holistic understanding and appreciation of Buddhism through study and practice. The BL is not exclusively affiliated to any particular Buddhist school or tradition. Taking on a universal approach to Buddhism, it encourages Buddhists irrespective of school, tradition or orientation, to come together to study, interact and cooperate with each other. The library has established close links with many other Buddhist organisations in Singapore and overseas.

Our Vision:
Well-being through the holistic study and practice of Buddhism.

Our Mission:
To provide a gate-way to the Dhamma through education, sharing of personal experiences and the conduct of mutually beneficial activities in a vibrant and supportive environment.
