In an unassuming village in the town of Kuching in East Malaysia, a group of truth seekers gather together and form a community for mutual support in the learning and practicing of Dhamma. Among them are some Malaysians, Singaporeans, Mainland Chinese, Taiwanese, and American. Although they come from different countries, background, and culture, they share a common goal – to seek self-purification.In order to realise this supreme vision, they dedicate all their time, energy, and life to the Triple Gems – the Buddha, Dhamma, and Sangha. They have grown into a Sangha of substantial size. The Sangha is a breath of fresh air in this small, humble town of Xin San Tu.
