Participants will be divided into teams, and each team will be preparing various dishes centered around a Dhamma theme of their choice. These dishes will then be judged by our panel of experienced judges who have a thorough understanding of the Dhamma as well as a great taste in food!!

Sport Session - Basketball!

We had a great badminton session last Sunday, with a great turnout of 18 people! Thanks to everyone for coming, and look forward to the next one in 3 weeks. It's that time of the year where students buckle down for their many assignments and tests, while others prepare for projects which are in progress or nearing completion. It is busy times for us all, so give yourself a break, and come Basketball this Sunday to shoot a few hoops and relax. There is no cost, except for the short bus ride to the courts. I look forward to seeing you there!

UNIBUDS DAILY Meditation

What are the benefits of meditation? Meditation helps to relax and settle our minds from our busy daily life. It also allows us to bring awareness to the present moment and to focus on the tasks at hand.

Why not spend a small part of our day to enjoy a little bit of peace and serenity. Take this excellent opportunity to practice, breathe and look within ourselves. For further enquiries, feel free to contact me! Hope to see you there!
