Song Dynasty monk, Cha Ling Yu once wrote a poem: I have a pearl, long imprisoned in dust; now that the dust is gone, it will shine through the universe.

‘Pearl’ symbolises the Buddha nature, the light of wisdom, the virtues of love and compassion, which we possessed. Due to lack of right understanding about true happiness, sentient beings seem to search for happiness in the wrong ways resulted in greater suffering. Thus the pearl is polluted by defilement due to ignorance and cravings.

Dharma learning should be lively and fun. Buddhist centers are vested with the mission of presenting the great insight through simplicities to the communities.

This issue of Berita YBAM compiled information on the Buddhist group community activities and made readers more aware of the concept and nature of service of “Community Engagement” promoted by YBAM 7th Six Year Plan.
