WHO ARE WE?
BLIA-YAD is abbreviated for Buddha’s Light International Association – Young Adult Division, and we are apart of a greater global Buddhist organisation Buddha’s Light International Association (BLIA).
We’re a group of like-minded youths that have an interest in learning more about Buddhism and the Buddha’s teachings. Through organising various activities and events, BLIA-YAD is actively involved in both promoting the teachings of Buddha and the fellowship among young people of today.
The objectives of the BLIA-YAD are:
To establish our direction through Humanistic Buddhism
To foster leadership skills by forming youth groups
To broaden our life experience through activities
To deepen our faith in Buddhism through education
To enrich our values by contributing to society
