Parents and Teachers

Shortage of Buddhist hymns among the Buddhist community is apparent when organizing camps for the young people. Two people are addressing this issue by launching the first story-based English Buddhist songs for children.

A composer of children songs, “Birth of the Buddha” and “Pass It On”, Daniel Yeo and his friend, Ng Kang Kee (producer of two number one hit Mandarin Buddhist album in Malaysia) has teamed up to present a brand new concept in children Buddhist songs.

 

Come and See 

Come and See is a compilation of 8 contemporary children songs based on the life of Prince Siddhartha from His birth to Enlightenment. Sang by young adults and children between 8 to 9 years old, this CD will be a valuable teaching aid for both Dhamma school teachers and parents. Kids will find the story telling part fun, refreshing and inspiring.

Launched in April 2005 at Da Bei Buddhist Centre, Singapore. “Come & See” has made its way to Germany, England, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan and Australia. A second installment, which is based on a “FIS” model of Sunday class, is in its production stage.

 

Come and See 2 

When dhamma lessons are conducted in a Fun, Interactive and Simple way, children are naturally drawn to it. When there is fun and play they learn well. Coupled with parental involvement and support at home and at the temple, we could witness the seeds of dhamma transforming into beautiful blossoms in the lives of our children. Then our dhamma class will grow not just in quality, but also in quantity!!! First launched in Penang, Malaysia on Sept 2007, Come & See how children enjoy learning Dhamma with the whole Family.

 

D-kidz Chant 

Chanting “The Three Refuges” as a daily practice helps us recall the good qualities of the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha. It is intended to inspire and motivate us to tread in the footsteps of our teacher, Buddha. To make chanting effective and meaningful, especially for kids, we have to explain it in simple language the meaning behind these verses and how it can be of practical help to them in everyday life. Inspired by Pavina, my 2-year-old daughter’s ability to mimic me chanting, “Namo tassa… arahato”, I embarked on the production work of this new series with a simple aim: “To make chanting Joyful, Interactive and Simple for kids”. Do look out for more CDs in this series of “D-kidz Chant”. Happy chanting!
