Posted on 08.09.2023

On 28 August 2023 at 10.30am, the Buddhist College of Singapore held its re-opening ceremony for the new semester at the Medicine Buddha Hall. The Rector Most Venerable Kwang Sheng graced the ceremony attended by the Vice Rectors Venerable Chuan Sheng, Venerable Chuan Hou and Venerable Chuan Xiong, the Head of Administration Venerable Chuan Li, together with class mentors and all lecturers and students.  

Most Venerable Kwang Sheng extended a warm welcome to all, emphasizing two points to the students. First, he reminded students to always embrace gratitude so as to experience fulfilment and happiness in life; gratitude is also an important component of practice. Second, he hoped students can overcome pride and cultivate humility. Humility is a noble and excellent attribute of human character. As the saying goes: the conceited incurs loss while the modest receives benefits. The Rector then presented awards to the top students of the last academic year, together with photo-taking. The ceremony ended with gracious blessings from the Rector.
