Prof Dr Freedom Y.K. Leung, Department of Psychology, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen, says that Sakyamuni Buddha was probably the first psychologist in the current human history. In this sharing session, Sis Miyen will explore basic tenets of Buddhism that have many commonalities with modern psychology e.g. the four Brahma Viharas have become important modern psychological interventions like mindfulness and compassion-based therapies, gratitude practice, etc.
Bro. Billy Tan’s sharing will be based on Dhammapada Verse 1 & 2.
