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.

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.

The orphanage began in 1990 on the impetus of kindness generated by both lay and monastic Bikkhu sangha within a particularly impoverished area of the Rangamati Hill tracts. Here they were finding the incidence of parentless children and children considered to be living in hard-core poverty’ to be very high. The orphanage thus began as a volunteer- driven initiative, a theme which still continues circa 19 years later, the Orphanage has been very pro-active in seeking help for their project and thus 1997 they wrote a letter to the Buddhist society of W.A seeking assistance as a fellow Buddhist organization. The Buddhist Society decided to support the project but not to run it. Thus its responsibility was taken up by Ms. Judi Rushforth who facilitated and developed the link for 6 years until 2003, when it was handed on to Mr. Scott Andrews from Australia.

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.
