Social Programme

The social programme is composed of a welcome reception, a cultural tour and a self-paid conference dinner. The free cultural tour to Tsz Shan Monastery will allow conference participants to experience spiritual purification while making new friends. Tsz Shan Monastery is a Chinese Buddhist monastery established for the inheritance of the teaching of the Buddha. Its outdoor bronze-forged white statue of Guan Yin (Goddess of Mercy), 76 meters in height, is a breathtaking sight.
