Notes and Events:

The seedling of Tzu Chi compassionate mission, with its origin from Taiwan quietly sprouted in Singapore in year 1987. In the early days of Tzu Chi Singapore, we had Sister Liu Jing Lian from Taiwan and along with a few volunteers, they began to visit the needy and poor in the local community. Along the way, many individuals were inspired to join in the compassionate work of Tzu Chi.

On 15 August 1991, 40 volunteers from Singapore went on a root-searching trip to Tzu Chi Headquarter in Hualien, Taiwan for the first time. This has brought about the official registration of the Buddhist Tzu Chi Merits Society (Singapore Branch) two years later in September 1993. After which, the branch office put in much effort to develop the missions of helping the poor and inspiring the rich in Singapore.

Many thanks to Dharma Master Hui Qi for sparing a space for Tzu Chi brothers and sisters for meetings and activities at the Bao Guang Temple (Poh Kwan Foh Tang) in the early days.

In August 1998, the Singapore branch was officially renamed Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation. In December the same year, the branch office was relocated to Trengganu Street in Chinatown. The new office had thus become the spiritual home for local Tzu Chi people. In early 1999, Master Cheng Yen sent one of her disciples, Sister Zhang Hong Lin from Taiwan to help in the development of the Singapore branch. Tzu Chi Cultural Centre was then renamed as Still Thoughts Cultural Services (Singapore). In 2004, Jingsi Books & Café was set up adjacent to the Chinatown office as a retail outlet to continue promoting the various publications of Tzu Chi.

In early 2003, Mr David Liu, the CEO of Tzu Chi Malacca branch was appointed by Master Cheng Yen to hold a concurrent post in Singapore branch.

Abiding the Buddha’s spirit of “Great Mercy even to Strangers, Great Compassion for All”, and following the principle of “Respecting life”, Tzu Chi people in Singapore strive to carry out the “Four Missions” and “Eight Footsteps” of Tzu Chi in the local community. Besides giving financial assistance and spiritual care to the needy, in 1999, the branch office also reach out to HIV patients and their families by providing them with support and concern. The Tzu Chi Free Clinic was then set up in August 2004 to serve the senior citizens and Tzu Chi’s aid recipients in Singapore.

Since early 2000, the Singapore Branch had extended its Medical mission by holding free clinic service twice a year for the sick and poor in neighbouring Indonesian islands such as Batam, Bintan, Karimun etc. To date, more than 20,000 locals have benefited from the service. The free clinic has also inspired many local Chinese to join in as Tzu Chi volunteers, which led to the establishment of a liaison office in Batam in year 2005.

The Singapore branch office was officially relocated to its new premise at Pasir Ris in October 2005. The Tzu Chi Continuing Education Centre was launched two months later in December 2005. It was launched with the objective of having another avenue to facilitate the spreading of Tzu Chi culture and humanities via classes such as Flower Arrangement, Chinese Calligraphy, Tea Arts and Sign Language to the general public.

At the same time, activities such as inspirational talks and beach cleaning exercises were held. On top of that, there is the ongoing monthly sharing session and recycling activities with recycling points set up in different parts of the island. All of which was aimed to encourage community participation and to enhance the sense of neighborhood cohesion.

All these years, Tzu Chi Foundation helps to bridge many caring people that have hectic work schedule to render their services to the needy. In their blue and white uniforms, the Tzu Chi volunteers reach out to the darker corners of the community, bringing love and hope to the sufferings. With a vision of “purifying minds, harmonious society and a world free of disaster and suffering”, these volunteers had left beautiful footprints on their lives as well as many others that they’ve touched.

Introduction

Our Mission

Gaden Shartse Dro-Phen Ling (GSDPL) was established in the aim of propagating the pure teachings of Lord Buddha Shakyamuni, as well as promoting Tibetan Buddhism, especially the Gelug lineage of Lama Tsong Khapa, in Singapore. We hope to provide a conducive environment for one’s dharma study and meditation and be a place for dharma friends to gather and practise together.

Our Roots

Gaden Shartse Dro-Phen Ling is a direct collegiate affiliate of Gaden Shartse Norling College. Gaden Shartse Monastery is a distinguished monastic institution originating from Tibet, which later reestablished in Mundgod, South India.

The first part of our name “Gaden Shartse” symbolize that our roots hail from Gaden Shartse Monastery. The second part of our name “Dro-Phen Ling” was auspiciously conferred upon by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama in Gaden Monastery in the December of 2001.

We managed to find an appropriate premise for the location of the centre, and officially started in July 2002. Gaden Shartse Dro-Phen Ling continues to grow from strength to strength with a current base of 3,000 members.

What we offer

Other than regular teachings and large-scale pujas held for the public, GSDPL also conduct pujas on a personal basis upon request. Pujas help one increase merits, invokes ripening of positive potential, and pacifies the negative conditions, ultimately helping to clear one’s obstacles. We have resident elderly Old Geshes who are very experienced in the art of divination; upon request, they can help determine various pujas that will be beneficial to each individual.

Kindly visit the centre personally should you visit to request for a divination to be done. Thank you.

Notes and Events:

KYCL Story

Kwan Yin Chan Lin Zen Centre (KYCL) was founded by Venerable Chi Boon in 1991. Its objective is to spread the Buddha’s true teaching so that we may attain our true selves and help all sentient beings to relieve from suffering. By practicing the correct meditation, we can find the correct direction of our lives and attain our true nature. We can also clearly perceive our correct situation, relationship and function at every moment, live in wisdom and compassion, to help our families, our friends, our country and this whole world to gain peace and happiness.

The name of our Zen Centre, “Kwan Yin Chan Lin”, carries a deep meaning. “Kwan” means to perceive and “Yin” means the sound of the world. “Kwan Yin” (in Korean, “Kwan Um”) means to perceive the sound within us, to remove our ignorance, attachment and incorrect mindset, and to practice the correct path. In addition, we should also perceive the sound of all sentient beings and help them to relieve from suffering and gain happiness. “Chan”, which is the Chinese word for Zen, represents simple and pure life. At present days, our lives are becoming more and more complicated, and many sufferings are made as a consequence. Zen practice can help us return to simple life and let our minds return to peace, tranquility, holiness and freedom. “Lin” means many tree. The many trees that make up a forest give it strength, and cannot be blown away by strong wind. “Chan Lin” represents many people practicing together so we can help each other and give each other strength to fulfil the great Buddhist vow.

Notes and Events:

Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery, an architecture masterpiece of the nineteenth century, also represents a unique pageant of Singapore history.

An amazing and eventful history of the Monastery relates back to the year 1858. Low Kim Pong, a young man of twenty from Zhangzhou County in the Fujian province, China , left his hometown and set sail for Singapore in search of a living. Born into a poor family, he was nevertheless generous and industrious by nature. Starting off from small businesses, the devoted Buddhist Low Kim Pong eventually became a successful entrepreneur and an influential leader of the Fujian community in Singapore .

In 1898, both Low Kim Pong and his son dreamt of a sacred man, radiating golden light, approaching from the West to the water front. Believing this to be an omen and with a continuing enthusiasm, they went to the waterfront and waited patiently. A boat finally arrived at dusk, with Venerable Xian Hui and his family of 12 monks and nuns.

They were actually stopping by Singapore , after six years of pilgrimage to India , Ceylon and Burma and were on their way home to Fuzhou County in Fujian.

Venerable Xian Hui and his entourage were invited to Low Kim Pong\\\'s home for a sojourn. During their stay, Low Kim Pong proposed to Venerable Xian Hui his vision of building a monastery in Singapore . So intent on having the familyl to stay, he donated 50 acres of land in the central part of the island (the present day Toa Payoh New Town) to build the monastery and invited Venerable Xian Hui to be the founding abbot of the monastery.

The plan to build the Monastery received overwhelming support from the Chinese community in Singapore , Malaysia and Indonesia .

Apart from monetary support, they also deploy the resources of craftsmen from their hometowns Fuzhou , Quanzhou and Zhangzhou Counties in the Fujian province, as well as Chaozhou County in the Guangdong province to build the Monastery. Together they created a unique blend of architectural styles particular to each region yet harmoniously fused to reflect the immigrant society of Singapore at that time.

Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery, with its rich and diverse history, exhibits a magnitude and splendour beyond description. Coupled with the eleven years of restoration work since 1991, this century old Monastery has finally regained its glory. Undeniably, Shuang Lin Shall become a milestone in the heritage of Singapore.

PA-AUK MEDITATION CENTRE (SINGAPORE)

Pa-Auk Meditation Centre (\'PAMC), established as a direct lineage of the Pa-Auk Forest Monastery (Pa-Auk), Mawlamyine, Myanmar, received the strong endorsement and support of The Most Venerable Pa-Auk Tawya Sayadaw Bhaddanta Ᾱciṇṇa (the Sayadaw), the Abbot of Pa-Auk.  PAMC is dedicated to the Sangha of Pa-Auk (the Sangha\\) as led by the Sayadaw, and draws its spiritual direction from the Sayadaw.

PAMC was registered in Singapore on 20 August 2007, and its registration was gazetted in the Singapore Government Gazette Notification No. 2555 dated 22 August 2007. 

OUR MISSION

PAMC serves to promote the learning and practice of Samatha and Vipassanā meditation, based on the teachings of Lord Gotama Buddha, as taught by the Sayadaw at Pa-Auk.

PAMC\\\'s principal activities include the following:

  • providing a conducive venue for the learning and practice of meditation under the guidance of resident teacher(s)
  • organizing  regular meditation retreats, courses and Dhamma talks (based on the Tipiṭaka, the Pāli Texts and the Commentaries),  taught by teachers authorized by the Sayadaw (and/or the Sangha)
  • publishing of Dhanmma books and CDs of Dhamma talks approved by Pa-Auk. 

OUR VISION

 Our vision is to establish a meditation retreat centre with an environment that encourages the observance of the Vinaya and precepts, and conducive for the long-term practice by both monastics and lay meditators. The retreat centre is envisaged to have separate facilities for male and female meditators, including separate meditation halls and residential facilities, providing a certain degree of solitude and minimum distraction.

Our longer term vision is to have a Sangha residing in Singapore, forming part of the larger Pa-Auk Sangha, so that the Sadhamma (true teachings of the Buddha) can be taught and practised, can take root, develop and sustain, and will flourish in Singapore and beyond, for the welfare and happiness of all. 

OUR LOGO

PAMCs Logo, comprising the Asoka Lion Pillars topped by the Wheel of Dhamma, is similar to that of Pa-Auk. The Logo encompasses the following key features  :   

  • It symbolizes PAMCs lineage of Pa-Auk Forest Monastery 
  • Lion  is representative of the Buddha in many ways; Lion also symbolizes Singapore, the Lion City
  • The words Sīla (morality), Samādhi (Concentration), Paññā (Wisdom) as inscribed on the Wheel of Dhamma, represent the undertaking of Threefold Training (of the Noble Eightfold Path) that will systematically purify ones body, speech and mind (of defilements)  in order to realize Nibbana, a state of supreme peace and happiness  

The Logo hence depicts PAMCs direct lineage to Pa-Auk, and its aspiration  to be the place where :

  • The true teachings of the Buddha (the Sadhamma) are taught, and the Wheel of Dhamma turns,
  • The Threefold Training is undertaken and practised, can take root, developed and  sustained, will flourish in Singapore and beyond, for the welfare  and happiness of all.

Notes and Events:

Poh Ming Tse Temple (PMT) reflects the contemporary modern Singapore while retaining our Chinese Mahayana roots. The bamboo decalcomania depicted on the screen wall is inspired by the serenity of the traditional Chinese rice paper painting, signifying peace and tranquillity that PMT offers to urban dwellers.

Regular Activities & Classes

Our vision is to be a non-sectarian platform to support all teachings of the Buddha.

 Our mission is to provide a conducive Dharma learning environment through our regular and quality Dharma programs. 

In 2006, the management of PMT decided to focus on the propagation of Buddhism in modern Singapore. Thus PMT went through a second round of rebuilding. Finally, in July 2009, a new three-storey building with modern facilities was completed on the site of the old temple to serve the Buddhist community in Singapore.

Notes and Events:

回顾般若念佛堂过去五十多年的历史 , 可以追溯到上世纪 50 年代初,当时住在偏僻的罗弄万国的居民及附近的住院病人有心修学佛法,希望在该区能有一间供礼佛、诵经的佛庙,于是自发组织起来,在旧板桥医院近邻搭建一间简陋的锌板屋,设置佛坛,供奉佛像。每逢初一、十五及佛诞佳节,聚众诵经礼佛,从此香火日益旺盛。由于地方简陋狭小,在信众与日俱增的情况下,地方显得越来越不够用.

Spiritual Director: Ven. Shi Ming Yi  
Notes and Events:

Ren Ci can be literally translated as "compassion" or "benevolent", and this is what we stand for.Established since 1994, Ren Ci Hospital is one of the few charity healthcare institutions in Singapore to provide affordable medical, nursing and rehabilitative care services for the community. Serving all regardless of background, race and religion, the interdisciplinary care team delivers quality service based on the principles of loving kindness and compassion

Most of the long-staying residents in our nursing home in Moulmein and long term care facility in Hougang come from low income families, while some are destitute. Suffering from multiple chronic medical conditions, their long-term healthcare needs have been draining them financially. While majority of the patients are either wheelchair bound or bedridden, they still long to return to their loved ones someday. Your kind act of compassion  will bring a ray of hope to these patients. With continued medical, rehabilitative and nursing support, we can guide them along the road to recovery. Every dollar you contribute will go a long way to help them. 

Besides catering to the long term healthcare needs of disadvantaged patients, Ren Ci also provide rehabilitative care to post-acute patients in a community  hospital setting so that they can regain their functional abilities and return back  to the community.  

As a charity healthcare organization Ren Ci relies heavily on publics donation and support as well as governments  subvention.

Various fundraising events are held every year to help Ren Ci raise the much needed funds for our patients. During each of these events, our stakeholders including our volunteers, donors, supporters, staff, board members and even our benefactors and their family members, will unfailingly come together as one united family to play their part and contribute towards a common goal: to bring a ray of hope to our less fortunate patients

With the rapidly ageing population in Singapore, Ren Ci will continue to play an integral role in supporting the healthcare needs of the senior community. Besides giving hope to frail elderly by helping them overcome their disabilities and teaching their families to care for them at home, Ren Ci also partners  various community groups and social enterprises to give dignity back to the elderly.
