"Let us all gather at this stadium, chant with great compassion, radiate thoughts of loving kindness and transfer our merits to the victims," he added.

"This meritorious and meaningful event is not just a spiritual gathering, but a demonstration of collective karma through the generation of positive thoughts led by 400 venerables", explained Datuk Tan Chai Ho, the Deputy Minister of Home Affairs who also is the project's adviser.
