A total of 120 participants from BLIA Sentul Branch, BLIA YAD - Sentul Subdivision, Fo Guang Youth Dharma Class, and Fo Guang Shan Three Acts of Goodness Children's Program took the exam, ranging in age from 4 to 79 years old.

Venerable Ru Yi, Superintendent of Fo Guang Shan (Malaysia) Sentul, emphasized that the purpose of participating in the Buddhism Exam is not to compete with others. Instead, it is an opportunity to assess one's understanding of Buddhism and reflect on how well one's actions align with the Dharma. Venerable Ru Yi encouraged everyone to perceive "Truth" and "Causes and Conditions" through the exam and to apply Dharma in their daily lives.

Venerable Ru Yi also reminded the young participants to spread Fo Guang Shan founder Venerable Master Hsing Yun's virtuous and beautiful philosophy of Three Acts of Goodness in the world. They should practice Three Acts of Goodness in their daily lives and become " Humanistic Little Bodhisattvas."

Many parents accompanied their children to participate in the exam, enhancing parent-child interaction. Parents expressed that through the Buddhism Exam, they gained a deeper understanding of Humanistic Buddhism. They also look forward to the next Buddhism Exam and plan to carefully study Venerable Master Hsing Yun's work, "Humanistic Buddhism: Holding True to the Original Intents of Buddha."
