Amitabha Buddhist Centre, Singapore Overview

Located in Geylang, Singapore, Amitabha Buddhist Centre is a centre for the study, and practice of Mahayana Buddhism. This seven-storied Tibetan Buddhist Centre aims at enlightening people and dispelling darkness from their lives by spreading Buddhist teachings and values which includes teaching the history and development of Buddhism in the region. This Buddhist Centre is for those who are inclined towards Buddhism and have a spiritual bent of mind.

Found in 1989, Amitabha Buddhist Centre is affiliated to FPMT, or the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition, a US-based non-profit organisation with over 160 centres around the world. The centre follows the lineage of Lama Tsong Khapa of Tibet. Under the guidance of the spiritual leader, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, the centre offers comprehensive programs that include classes, discussions, celebrating annual festivals along with prayer sessions and community service. The architecture of the building itself is similar to that of Tibetan monasteries, having prayer wheels at the sides of the entrance. The prayer hall on the 4th floor is open to all and makes for a delight to the eyes with its colourful Tibetan paintings, called Thangkas, and statues.
