INTRODUCTION: PRACTICAL WAYS OF ENHANCING SPIRITUAL GROWTH OVER DISASTERS
Generally, most Buddhists are already mindset and they only practise formalities in following the teachings of the Lord Buddha. Right from the beginning, most of the religious leaders and teachers as well as spiritual masters are engrossed with raising funds for more magnificent temples or renovations of more splendid temples without ever realising temples are actually meant for spreading dharma teachings, sharing of spiritual knowledge in meditations and chanting devotional services to enhance protection of devotees. It is also not a showcase for anyone to see the beauty of the temple but the only significance is the temple’s contributions of services to the people.
This booklet is intended to share the knowledge of what every Buddhist or laities should know about the practical and necessary cultivations of our Blessed One as well as Amitabha Buddha’s teachings.
It outlines simple and easy-to-understand ways of enhancing our spiritual growth to success through down-to-earth practicing concepts. It is hoped that those who read this booklet will gain some form of inner knowledge and wisdom to purify the mind and body to attain higher realms of sainthood abodes.

It is fervently hoped with true intent that these posts are able to throw some light on ways to fend ourselves from being washed away innocently from any of these three oncoming disasters. We do not believe our life is fated to die or remain alive in these disasters and ignore any effort to uplift our mind and body to be worthy of saving through this coming disaster. Remember, no God would ever lift a finger to save us if we are corrupted, immoral, disrespectful, lazy, selfish and have ill-will in our character.
