Buddhists may still remain the majority of the population here in Singapore but practicing Buddhists may not reckon so. I think a more accurate estimate would probably put it at 20%. We are definitely not the majority.

On the other hand, I may be barking up the wrong tree but the influential Buddhists institutions in Singapore don't seem to see the importance of youth work. True that building more and beautiful temples is a meritorious deeds. But if this passive attitude continues from those that matters, most Buddhist temples in Singapore will only become white elephants, and the devotee a rarity.

Let young people behave like young people.
