Public Talk: Facing the Fears of the Changing World
Life is full of uncertainties. This is especially so in today's life where new media and technology allows for global communication within seconds.
We have invited Venerable Chuan Guan to share with us how we can Face and Cope with the fears we experience while being in such a fast-changing world.
Venerable Chuan Guan was ordained under Master MiuKing (Master MiaoJing) in 2002 (higher ordination in 2003) and began his monastic training in Fa Yun Monastery (New Mexico, United States), learning the sutras and practised meditation under the Mahayana Buddhist tradition while studying the Theravadin Pali Canon. Returning to Singapore in 2006, he continued his training under Ven. Kwang Sheng in Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery.
Since 2009, he is resident in the Buddhist Library while giving Dharma and meditation classes at the library and various Buddhist organisations. Online, he reaches out to the Buddhist community via his blog at www.buddhavacana.net, facebook & twitter. He received his degree in Computer Engineering from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and worked in the IT industry prior to monkhood.
