Feedback From Round 3:
Thank you again for the very interesting class!… The course content is easy to relate to as the teacher supplements it with the usage of movies and everyday examples. Open discussion of topics related to the course content is also encouraged, thus making the learning process more meaningful. Overall, the course has been an enriching experience. Amituofo, Ling
Hi Bro Shi An, I one of your students who are currently attending your Project Rebirth. I’m really enjoying it… Thanks… Sincerely, I’m looking forward to your next advanced course. Please keep me in the loop… – Ivan
I have been interested in Buddhism since I was young but I am embarrassed to say I have never practiced it diligently. Nor have I joined any Buddhist group, though I have always endeavoured to try and keep to the teachings of Buddhism. I joined Project Rebirth so as to receive a formal and proper introduction to the basic teachings of Buddhism, and I must say I have achieved a better and more accurate understanding of Buddhism after the course. - Leo
Though I started attending Project rebirth from the 5th lesson, there was still much Dharma for my learning, and I enjoyed every lesson attended. I did hestiate to attend Project rebirth because of the location, but am glad I gave myself a chance to learn. And thanks to you for sharing the Dharma. - Abrie
I want to thank you for conducting this course. I’ve been reading Buddhism materials (although not diligently) since year 2004 and couldn’t understand most of its teachings… Having a busy lifestyle coupled with commitments and responsibilities, I find it really helpful to attend Buddhism classes like this as it helps me to put aside time to listen and learn about Buddhahood. - Caryn
I am grateful for the opportunity to learn Dharma from you. I walked into the class on day 1 with very little knowledge of Buddha and Dharma; as I mostly do self-reading. Now, I walk out with my mind and heart filling with the Buddha and Dharma. Now, it is up to me to put Dharma into daily practice… I truly benefitｔed a lot from your sessions and hope that many others like me will start this journey with you soon. Till we meet again, take care! Amituofo, YT
