Alhamdulillah, this morning we visited the Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery, commonly known as the Bright Hill Temple, located at Bright Hill Road.
It’s a huge complex, possibly the largest buddhist temple in Singapore.
We were greeted by the Abbot Venerable Sik Kwang Sheng, a highly accomplished individual who is also the President of the Singapore Buddhist Federation and Founder of Buddhist College of Singapore.
The Kong Meng San temple gave a donation to the Aid 2 Syrian Refugees in Turkey project.
Ven Sik Kwang Sheng expressed his concerns about the situation in Gaza, and was deeply saddened after reading numerous reports on the indiscriminate killing of children there.
I briefed him on the Syrian refugee situation, after having returned from Southeast Turkey very recently.
Ven Sik urged that we should pray together for peace as we are living on the same earth.
He’s also praying that all the parties involved in the various conflicts around the world find in their hearts a way to forgive each other, and return to peace.
Allahu Akbar! Allahumma Ameen.
