“My mind was scattered, I focused on the chanting to calm down my mind,” said Wong Yu Hoi, a Tzu Chi teenager who learnt how to tame his mind during the pilgrimage.

On March 20 morning, Indian volunteers in Klang approached about 100 Indian pupils of KMSCC to promote Tzu Chi and the “Bamboo Bank Era”, nurturing kind thoughts in the young minds.
