About Po Lam

The intention of establishing the association sprouted when our honorable teacher, Venerable Sing Yat, was on a teaching tour in North America years ago. He found that Vancouverites were virtuous and friendly, and he also praised that Vancouver is a pristine and serene place, well-suited for spiritual cultivation and the propagation of Buddhism. With the strong support of fellow Buddhists, the formation of Po Lam Buddhist Association was finally realized in 1994. In part, it has fulfilled our teacher’s lifelong wish that his students would follow patriarchal tenets, adhere to the traditions of a moral and spiritual life, and introduce to the West an alternative way of finding real happiness.
