    The Treatise on the Hundred Dharmas

    Date: 3 Jan to 6 Jun (Every Wed) refer to schedule below
    Time: 7.30pm – 9.30pm
    Venue: The Buddhist Library, Level 2 Auditorium (Break on 14 Feb & 9 May 2018)
    Speaker: Ven. Chuan Guan
    Fees: $120 per year($30 per term)

    The World-Honored One said,
    “All dharmas are empty of a self.”
    What are all dharmas? What is to be empty of a self?

    In this Mahayana Abhidharma commentary of the consciousness only (yogacara) school, Venerable Vasubandhu elucidates on the way our mind functions and relates to the world we exist in. What are these Hundred Phenomena? How does this teaching apply to us in our daily lives? Come join us and learn how to better manage our mind and emotions as we pave the way to true inner peace and happiness, Nirvana.

    Venerable Chuan Guan was ordained under Master Miu King (Master Miao J) in 2002 (higher ordination in 2003) and began his monastic training in Fa Yun Monastery (New Mexico, United States). He learned the sutras and practised meditation under the Mahayana Buddhist tradition while studying the Theravadin Pali Canon.

    2006 to 2016, Venerable Chuan Guan trained and served as resident monk in Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery (KMSPKS) and the Buddhist Library. His focus is on Dharma learning, meditation and provides counseling and spiritual services.

    Online, he reaches out to the Buddhist community via this blog at, facebook, twitter, and through apps on Apple and Android mobile devices. He received his degree in Computer Engineering from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and worked in the IT industry prior to monkhood.
