Venue: Coney Island
Being in balance is a beautiful state. When the ecological system is balanced, it will render favourable weather for the crops; when there is balance in nutritional intake, one can be assured of good health; when there is balance in work and rest, a person will feel energetic.
The Buddhist friends of Guan Yin Citta are individuals who are fully dedicated to their work and contribute greatly to society; at the same time, they serve as loving parents and obedient children at home. In the midst of playing their various roles in life, they need to strike a balance between work and rest. To help them achieve a relaxed body and mind so as to enable better practice of Buddhism and improved quality of life, the Singapore practice group of Guan Yin Citta decided to leave behind the hustle and bustle of the city and organised a hiking trip to Coney Island. Buddhist friends joined in the workout, cycling, walking and learning to relax in the embrace of nature. Throughout the excursion, their worries were drowned by their laughters, and their physical exhaustion was alleviated. Indeed, a wonderful escape for a weekend.
