    Kong Meng San Monastery
    Threefold Refuge & Five Precepts Ceremony

    Precepts are basic guidelines of moral conduct to help a Buddhist cultivates positive conduct. Precepts are taken voluntarily and observing them helps one to develop mindfulness. As we cultivate awareness of our feelings and various mind-states, such mindfulness restrains us from committing unwholesome acts. By observing the Five Precepts, one makes progress on the path to Enlightenment and at the same time, contributes to the well-being and happiness of others.

    Preceptor: Venerable Sik Kwang Sheng (Conducted in Mandarin)
