The Origin of San Cao Gen (The Three Herbs)

Saddharma Puṇḍarīka Sūtra (Lotus Sutra) - It was stated in The Parable of the Medicinal Herbs that Buddha uses the metaphor of falling rain to describe how the Buddha teaches sentient beings. The rain, which represents the Buddhadharma, falls on various flora. There are three types of medicinal herbs, small, medium and large. The herbs receive varying amounts of rain according to their size. This represents how the Buddha teaches with equanimity but because of the different capacities of sentient beings, they gain different levels of understanding.

Shan You is a non-profit organisation set up to provide counselling and social services to children, youths, families and the elderly, regardless of race, religion and ability to pay for our services. The Centre was registered as a charity on 28 Dec 1995 and conferred the Institutions of a Public Character (IPCs) status. It has a full membership with the National Council of Social Service. As a non-profit organisation that offers services at no charge where possible, Shan You depends heavily on donors and sponsors, and organises fund-raising projects to raise the much-needed funds. Shan Yous operating expenses amount more than 1 million per annum. Only the counselling services provided by our agency are partially funded by the Community Chest, NCSS.

History

 In 1991, Buddhist Graduate Fellowship (now known as Buddhist Fellowship) initiated the formation of Tai Pei Counselling Centre with funds from the Tai Pei Foundation. Tai Pei Counselling Centre thus became the first Buddhist counselling centre in Singapore.

As its services expanded, the Centre moved to Foo Hai Ch’an Monastery in 1993 and was renamed as Ren Ci Counselling Centre. However, the monastery wanted to relocate the Centre to Ren Ci Hospital, a hospital for chronically ill patients, in 1995. It was then that a decision was made to set up an independent counselling centre in order for it to serve the centre community and to prevent frequent relocations.

Finally, Shan You Counselling Centre was established and registered as a society on 17 June 1995. Its name, Shan You Counselling Centre, was suggested by Venerable Mun Cheng and endorsed by the Management Committee.

 Initially, Shan You Counselling Centre was situated in Lorong 36 Geylang. However, as the old site was zoned for residential building projects, the Urban Redevelopment Authority gave notice of the Centre’s need to move. In May 1998, upon the successful application to the Housing and Development Board, the Centre relocated to the void deck of Block 9 Upper Boon Keng Road. We were again affected by HDBs redevelopment programme and by April 2006, we moved to our current premises at Block 5 Upper Boon Keng Road. This location was chosen because of its easy accessibility by public transport and its close proximity to the community that the Centre was target to serve.

 Shan You Counselling Centre is supported through public contributions, grants and donations from foundations, Counselling Costs Recovery Scheme, programme fees and membership dues. From April 1998 the Counselling and Casework Services has been supported by the Community Chest, the fund-raising division of the National Council of Social Service.

The services provided by the Centre are mainly free. However users of the Counselling and Casework Services are offered the opportunity to contribute any sum of money under the Counselling Costs Recovery Scheme. Special programmes and training courses conducted by the Centre are offered at a nominal or subsidised fee.

Notes and Events:

On 20th March 1999, the late Geshe Lama Konchog, now reincarnated as Tulku Tenzin Phuntsok Rinpoche, instructed Lama Thubten Namdrol Dorje to start a Dharma Centre. He bestowed the name Thekchen Choling, meaning Great Mahayana Dharma Temples named after the monastery of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

Geshe-las vision was for the temple to change the current mindset of that one can only practice the Dharma as ordained Sangha. Thekchen Cholings focus is thus to impart ways that lay people can practice the Dharma, integrating it into their everyday lives and learning to realize their inner potential and be happy and fulfilled.

In 2001, Thekchen Choling (Singapore) was formally registered. From a handful of students, the crowd at Thekchen Choling is now several times larger with a mailing list of five thousand and regular students numbering to several hundred.

Thekchen Cholings vision is to Connect All with Divine Hearts. This is a special wish for all members and disciples to develop the divine heart of Buddha and gain enlightenment to benefit all beings.

As earnest practitioners of the Dharma, these aspiring Buddhas and Bodhisattvas can also engage in the activities of divine beings to reach out and touch everyone with the essence of Buddhas teaching - Love and compassion. With this proactive and outgoing aspiration, it is therefore not surprising that Thekchen Choling has a very young congregation. Coming from diverse backgrounds, they range from students to young working professionals under 40 years of age.

The three areas that the temples activities are in

  1. Dharma Development
  2. Healing Services
  3. Community Services for children and youth.

Introduction to Vipassana Meditation

Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of the most ancient techniques of meditation. The Buddha taught it in India more than 2500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills, an Art of Living. To those who are not familiar with Vipassana Meditation we recommend visiting the International Vipassana Website for an introduction.
