Founded in 1934, The Singapore Buddhist Lodge (SBL) is one of the Buddhist temples in Singapore. SBL's objective is to propagate Dharma and to perform charitable undertakings. Since its establishment, SBL has been very active in the following areas: organising pujas and Buddhism related events; distribution of red packets to the aged during Lunar New Year; giving out bursaries to students of all races; reaching out to the less fortunate through its Family Service Centre and Chinese Free Clinics and provision of free vegetarian meals to the public everyday.
