The Young Ambassadors of Virtue Foundation, in cooperation with Vimuttayalaya Institute, organised a camp called “Dhamma is the Light of Wisdom” at Rai Chern Tawan International Meditation Center, Chiang Rai Province between 22 – 26 November 2014. Phramaha Wudhijaya Vajiramedhi (W.Vajiramedhi), a prominent Buddhist monk, was the main instructor at this camp.
The lessons included Dhama principles and their application to our daily lives, meditation, developing one’s consciousness on the value of time and self-value, positive thinking, etc. The participating Young Ambassadors of Virtue are expected to become more alert and enthusiastic to learn and engage in activities, more determined to use the experience and knowledge obtained from this camp to support project in the participating schools, whose outcomes shall be reported to the Foundation within February 2015.
The camp demonstrates a great example of a continued and strong relationship between the Young Ambassadors of Virtue Foundation and the Vimuttayalaya Institute, which sponsored this camp for the second consecutive year.
After having completed this camp, 32 Young Ambassadors of Virtue and 9 teachers were selected to join a study trip to Myanmar in February 2015 to promote knowledge exchange and friendship.
