The Young Buddhist Association of Malaysia (YBAM) is the leading Buddhist youth organisation in Malaysia. Through our conviction in the Buddha’s mission of compassion, growth and liberation, we continuously promote positive lifestyle in developing a society of wisdom, compassion and gratitude. Since its formation in 1970, YBAM has actively involved in establishing Buddhist organisations nationwide, propagating the learning of Dharma among the youths and providing leadership training for them. Using this strong foundation that we helped to build, local Buddhist organisations have accomplished great progress in the development of local Buddhist communities.
