The Mental Plane is also the realm of the Mind, i.e. the plane where thought arises. We will discuss further the subject of elemental kingdoms and the elemental essence that ensoul thoughts. Hence, this lecture serves as an introduction to 'thought-forms', one of the most important aspects of nature. This lecture is useful, if not a prerequisite for the 6th lecture on 'Thought-Forms'.

Excursion to Botanic Gardens

No lodge meeting this week, as we are going for an excursion to the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Those who have registered please take note that the coach will leave Sims Avenue Centre at 9 a.m. sharp. Don’t miss the bus! Register if you wish to join us.

 

The highlight of the excursion is an art exhibition entitled “Beyond Gingers” representing Tham Pui San’s Encounters with Nature, at CDL Green Gallery.

 

The Singapore Botanic Gardens can be considered nature’s gallery of the finest art, sculpted and dressed by Mother Nature. Self-taught artist and volunteer Tham Pui San is one of its many admirers. He frequents the Gardens to contemplate and capture its beauty in his own works. He is also fiercely passionate about sharing his two loves—nature and art—with all who care to learn. Come along on this journey to discover the Gardens through his paintings. Incidentally, Tham Pui San is one of our members.
