2014 marked the 10th anniversary for the YBAM National Service Program Special Committee. During the 10 years, the committee had been continuously carrying out interaction camps for the National Service Program’s instructors and facilitators. This enabled both the instructors and facilitators to be trained and having a platform to share their experiences. On the 12th to 14th of December 2014, YBAM came up with an innovative effort by organising an Adolescent Dharma Class Teachers Training Program, with the theme "When New Age meets ONLIFE teacher". The training camp was held at Petaling Kwan Inn Temple, Selangor.
The 2014 National Young Buddhist Fellowship (YBF) Leadership Training Camp was successfully held from 4 to 7 December 2014 at Taman Lagenda Gunung Lendang, Johor. This leadership training camp was organised by YBAM, co-organised by YBAM Johor State Liaison Committee, supported by IM4U together with Yayasan Belia Buddhist Malaysia. The event received overwhelming response from 208 young Buddhists all over Malaysia of whom 160 qualified participants were selected.
First, I wish everyone an auspicious beginning of a new year. This year is the year of the Goat that gives us the impression of meek, honestly living, nonaggressive, and will not strive for power and profit. But some feel that honest people tend to be on the losing side, making them easy to be taken advantage by other people, thus showing foolishness, less clever and smart as others.
