Seeing the wisdom of the Buddha’s teachings through the lens of stories: The IBSF, September 2016

In the recent years, picture books have gained an increasing popularity among local families, schools, institutions and communities. Picture books open doors which lead young children to the joy and bliss of reading. There is a whole world of wonders within picture books that awaits the reader, young and old (parents!) alike, to explore and to experience. Reading picture books with your young ones provides precious opportunities for bonding and positive interactive communication between you and your children.


The Buddha himself is an excellent storyteller. We have all had the experience of learning about the teachings of the Buddha through stories, either through reading about them in the suttas or listening to them being retold by the Buddha’s disciples. With the aim to unleash the wisdom embedded in various Buddhist stories and to inculcate these valuable teachings into our daily lives, the YBAM and YBBM is organizing the inaugural International Buddhist Story Telling Festival.


This September 17th and 18th (Saturday and Sunday), we invite you to come and see the wisdom of the Buddha’s teachings through the lens of stories. We will have a parade of renowned storytellers from both overseas and locally to showcase to you and your children some of the best Buddhist stories you would have ever heard. You would be delighted to know that there will also be a workshop for parents to help you morph into a great storyteller yourself, and continue the joyful experience of reading with your children once they’ve been “bitten by the book bug” during this festival! .


So don’t miss it – such opportunity doesn’t knock twice!
