History of WAY
The Ananda Metyarama Buddhist Youth Circle (AMBYC) was born on 23 November 1966. It was the first Buddhist Youth Circle in Singapore. Maha Somkuan Aggadhamma (Phraku Bisaldhammanides) became our first Spiritual Advisor. On 28 November 1966, His Excellency, Mr Payong Chutikul the Royal Thai Ambassador officially declared the opening of AMBYC.
30 years since its inception, AMBYC is proud to record many memorable events and contributions to Buddhism and preserving the Thai Theravada Tradition in Singapore. In 1996, we introduced a New Logo to create a new look which stresses the importance of the Learning, Practising and Sharing of the Buddha's Teaching.
This noble task of propagating the Buddha's Teaching with the following objectives was laid down in the constitution.
