Each morning, prior to begin their classes, the students will observe the five precepts, which will be followed by Buddha Wandana, a short meditation session, and a discourse related to relevant topics and living in harmony with the fellow beings,

The immediate objective is to help our students to understand and solve the problems that confront them in their daily life, to make them well-rounded, happy, and balanced men and women which lead towards living in harmony with their environment and fellow beings.
