eWesak Blessing 2020 – One Light One Inspiration

We will be ONLINE for Wesak 2020

Wesak is the perfect time for us to contemplate on how fortunate we are to have a roof above our head, food in our stomach, and remain safe during the MCO. Most importantly, we have the opportunity to hear the Buddha’s timeless teachings and benefit from the Dhamma.
