"Seeking Nature's Peace and Bliss"

Theme of The 12th Dhamma Youth Camp 2004 ( in Cameron Highlands ) - Reflection
* Our world today is filled with trouble, problems, conflicts and natural disasters.
* Despite all the scientific and technological advances, there is still so much DUKKHA or suffering.
* We have interfered with and destroyed much of Nature - deforestation, pollution and 'development' projects rooted in greed and delusion.
* In His search for Enlightenment, Siddhartha Gautama spent most of His time with or in Nature. He attained Enlightenment under the Bodhi Tree in the midst of Nature. He lived and preached the Dhamma mostly in an Environment of Nature's Peace.
* It's time we live more in harmony with Nature. One can attain much peacefulness and tranquility living in and appreciating the wonders of Nature.
* The Peace and Bliss one can attain by being with Nature is very beautiful and profound.
With Metta,
Bro. Oh Teik Bin
