Enrichment Courses

Fu Hui Buddhist Cultural Centre conducts courses all year round to cater to different needs and learning of the members. Our courses are often  conducted by experienced Venerables or lay teachers. Some of the courses conducted include Guided Reading of Surangama Sutra Course, Meditation Group Practice and many others.

As you learn more of the Dhamma and put it into practice in your daily life, you will eventually find peace and happiness in your mind and appreciate the beauty of the Dhamma. As it is said by the Buddha: “Dhamma is beautiful in the beginning, in the middle and in the end”.
