Mahasamaya Sutta Online Chanting Course Completion Ceremony, Speech By Dr Chong Tien Siong, Singapore
(WAki International Media Center 19th December) Spokesperson Dr Chong Tien Siong from Singapore on Mahasamaya Sutta Online Chanting Course Completion Ceremony on 26th November 2021.
Thank you very much for allowing me to say a few words.
First of all, good afternoon to Dr Chao Khun Laow who are in London and for those in Europe, and good evening to those in Asia of different countries, including myself in Singapore.
This is really a wonderful experience for me to join this Mahasamaya Sutta Online Chanting Course, because all of us staying in different countries, and yet we are able to see each other and to study together.
Therefore, I feel very grateful to Dr Chao Khun Laow who was so nice and so hamble that he spend a lot of time to teach us on how to chant the Mahasamaya Sutta, or the Great Meeting of Sutta, which is very well known in Buddhist Chanting and always consider as a protective blessing with full energy.
For me personally, I will always remember the beautiful musical tune, for example “ Iddhimanto jutimanto, Vannavanto yasassino; Modamana abhikkamum, Bhikkhunam samitim vanam”. I understand this sutra is in Pali language, which is very close to Sanskrit that full of historical and cultural value. And by chanting Mahasamaya Sutta, it makes me feel so peaceful in mind, which I think this is the ultimate value of Buddhism.
最后，我要借此良机感谢华琪国际集团，特别是总裁张秋源，因他特地邀我加入这个由赵坤劳博士领导的在线诵经课程。再次非常感谢张秋源博士，也非常感谢赵坤劳博士和我所有的同学。萨杜！ 萨杜！ 萨杜！
Finally, I would like to take this golden opportunity to thank Waki International Group, especially The President Mr Teo Choo Guan, who specially invited me to join this Online Chanting Course that lead by Dr. Chao Khun Laow.
Thank you very much Mr Teo Choo Guan, and also thank you very much Dr Chao Khun Laow and all my Course-mates.Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!
