About Alaya

Alaya means storage or repository in Pali and Sanskrit, and is the name of the eighth consciousness, for its function of storing the karmic seeds that we plant.

This online platform is named Alaya with the purpose of being a repository for Dharma events organised by Buddhist organisations.

It is a free-to-use platform provided as a service to the Buddhist community regardless of lineage.

Alaya was developed and is currently maintained by Ven Chuan Guan, and supported by Little Dharma Works (LDW). If you would like to join in to develop Alaya, contact us today!

Organisations using Alaya are required to enter their UEN id or banking information for participants to make payments via PayNow or iBanking respectively.

Alaya does not require nor store any banking login, credit card nor paypal info. Do not submit any of the above info to anyone via Alaya. All payment info and security measures are handled by the respective financial institutions directly.

  1. At the login page, click on the 'Reset Password' button.
  2. Enter your email address and click on "I'm not a robot" reCaptcha. You may be required to solve some puzzles to prove that you are not a robot. I know, it is quite silly. But it is either reCaptcha or your password may get reset by some nefarious folks.

  4. At the reset password page, enter a new set of password. Your password should be at least 10 characters and include lower, upper case characters and numbers. (Upper case characters are equivalent to Capital letters). (Again, the reason for having these password requirements is so that your passwords cannot be easily guessed or compromised through a bruteforce attack. We would not want that to happen would we?)

  5. After successfully resetting your password, you can proceed to login to Alaya with your new password. Phew :)
