President's Message

Dear CBS Alumni,


Another year has passed by and what a year it has been! Covid restrictions have been relaxed and we are gradually returning to normality, there is an ever widening of the light seen at the end of the tunnel. We expect to be able to hold more activities this year.


In December 2022, for the second year in a row, we were able to hold a face-to-face graduation Dinner which was a great success. It was heartening to see the happy faces of the MBS and MBC graduates at the dinner. Another first: it was the first time we held a Graduation Dinner on the HKU campus.


For 2022-2023 we will organise visits to local Hong Kong monasteries, ones we have visited in the past as well as new. We are really excited about our new initiative which we have never carried out in the past. CBSAA will become involved with community outreach activities for the first time.


This year is also the 20th Anniversary of the Centre of Buddhist Studies which has organised a yearlong series of events to commemorate the anniversary. CBSAA extends heartfelt congratulations to CBS.


We continue to thrive and prosper due to your ongoing engagement with all of the CBSAA activities. Long may this shared experience continue! 


I would like to extend thanks and gratitude to our Honorary Advisors and each member on the Executive Committee for their undying support and invaluable contribution. This devoted stewardship allows CBSAA to be what it is today. 

Guard your thoughts, words, and deeds. These three thoughts will speed you along the path to pure wisdom. Dhammapada 20:281
