  1. Hi,
    Chanced upon your site when I was searching for SBF for meditation classes. I was pretty disappointed that SBF’s website was predominantly written in Chinese. It’s pretty exclusive I think, since it alienates non-chinese readers like myself who want to learn more about Buddhism. I could not find a feedback link there (I can’t really read Chinese). Maybe you can help forward
    my feedback? Many thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Nicole,

      Thanks for your feedback.
      Personally, I feel the same way too. ;)I mentioned the need to use other languages in various talks and also in this blog entry. Even the Chinese in China are embracing foreign languages to better communicate. Maybe I should do a call for translator volunteers. ๐Ÿ˜€

      I will definitely forward to them your feedback. Hopefully we see a more balanced site that appeals to non-chinese readers. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. @Singapore, the course is starting in March 2010 and will open up for registration within this month or Jan 2010. Will post an update over here when details are out.

    With blessings,
