    Architecture of the Buddhist World






    Friday Evening Lecture:
    Architecture of the Buddhist World
    Date & Time:
    28 November 2014 (Friday), 7 to 8.30pm
    Venue :
    Ngee Ann Auditorium, Asian Civilisations Museum
    Free Admission

    Speaker: Vikram Lall
    Architect, Lall & Associates
    Author, The Golden Lands: Architecture of the Buddhist World

    From its origins in India in the 6th century BC, Buddhism spread across Asia, commingling with local traditions. Taking an interdisciplinary approach that brings together history, philosophy, and art, this lecture explores the diversity of architecture in the Buddhist world, with particular emphasis on Southeast Asia. The speaker will also discuss the nature of an architect’s engagement with history and theory. He will share his experience pursuing a reflective architectural practice – one that incorporates a holistic understanding of the built environment.

    About the speaker
    Vikram Lall is an award-winning architect, academic, and patron of the arts. He earned a Master of Studies, Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment, at Cambridge University, and has over 25 years of experience in architectural practice. Lall has designed landmark buildings, including the Akshardham Temple in New Delhi, and the Buddha Smriti Park in Patna, India. Passionate about conservation and education, he founded the Society for Art Appreciation and Research in 2012. He has curated several arts events, and directed and anchored a television series on musical traditions of India for India’s national television. His book, The Golden Lands: Architecture of the Buddhist World, was published in September 2014.

    This lecture is free and co-organised with Friends of the Museums (Singapore). Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. No registration is required.

    English Dharma Talk Series



    Right Livelihood and Challenges at Work Place – 17 April 2014
    We spent most of our time working to sustain ourselves. Is the job or kind of work you love doing, respectable, honourable or harmless? The workplace presents us with tough situations, problems, difficulties and conflicts. How do we handle them? Do all these matter as a spiritual path to Buddhist practice?

    An Overview of Dependent Origination – 21 Aug 2014
    The Buddha equates Dependent Origination with the Dharma: “One who sees Dependent Origination sees the Dharma; one who sees the Dharma sees Dependent Origination.” The principle is expounded as a law of nature. How does it relate to rebirth without a soul and what is life?

    The Origins of Mahayana Buddhism – 4 Dec 2014
    There are two major schools of Buddhism, Theravada and Mahayana. Mahayana is very diverse. Let us look into the history of Buddhism to trace the emergence and development of Mahayana Buddhism.

    Retreat by Venerable Chodron : Creating the Causes of Happiness




    Retreat :Creating the Causes of Happiness
    Venue :Poh Ming Tse Temple 438 Dunearn Road
    Singapore 289613
    Singapore
    Date and time:Saturday, 6 December 2014 at 09:30 - Sunday, 7 December 2014 at 17:00 (SGT)
    Register : Eventbrite

    Our craving mind thinks that the causes of happiness are external. We imagine that our lives would be better, if only we had the perfect body, perfect partner, perfect job and perfect home. The heart of the Buddha's teachings, the Four Noble Truths, goes against the grain of our wishful thinking and teaches us to look within our own mind to create the causes of happiness and give up the causes of suffering.

    Venerable Thubten Chodron will teach on the 16 aspects of the Four Noble Truths and how to meditate on them to transform our minds.

    Registration starts at 9.30am. The event timing on both days is from 10am to 5pm. Packed lunch is catered.

    Non-residential.
