What actually is Kong Meng San preaching?

By Carpenter TM, Singapore, The Buddhist Channel, Aug 21, 2016

Within a span of 5 years, Kong Meng San coffers are increased by differentiating categories of donors / sponsorship to garner front row in chanting.

Earlier this year Vesak day 2016, lanterns were "priced" with limited editions, with donations requested at S$ 388 each. The lanterns were limited to 100 units.

It is truly abusive of Buddhas' teaching to garner money via devotees compassion.

Why not have an open forum online on this issue, so that Buddhists can share their thoughts here?

It is unbecoming of a religion that poor are not able to make pujas because they cannot afford it!.
