Youth Concert 2015
A musical performance with the intent to propagate and inculcate Buddhist teachings to the audience.
Portrayed through live skits; expressed through songs, dramatic acting and the various musical instruments. All these will seamlessly fused to simulate the uncertainties and turbulent nature of Life in our Samsaric World.
Audience will be able to relate the bigger picture of This Life and, possibly, identify and connect themselves individually with the many facets of his or her own life journey. All these will be grasped through the dynamic and artistic expressions of this Show.
Venerable Heng Sure will lead the show. Other than lecturing on Buddha Dharma, Venerable Heng Sure is well-know to convey the Teachings of the Buddha through music. Armed with his ever-present guitar and his wondrous voice, the Venerable will explain the Dharma and convey the Buddhist teachings through the unorthodox way of music to help bring forth our faith and realise our potential in our Awakening.

Venerable Heng Sure, an American Buddhist monk, is a senior monastic disciple of the late Venerable Master Hsuan Hua. He is currently the Director of the Berkeley Buddhist Monastery, a branch monastery of the Dharma Realm Buddhist Association. Venerable Heng Sure is probably best known for his three steps, one bow pilgrimage, from South Pasadena to Ukiah, California, a distance of 800 miles, seeking world peace. The pilgrimage took two years and six months from 1977 to 1979.
