Vassana Kalo (This is the time to observe Rain Retreat)

We would like to inform you that the Resident Monks in Ti-Ratana Lumbini Garden will observe Vassa Retreat in the Centre after the full Moon Day of July 15th, 2011.  Duration of the Vassa period is 3 months, which falls on the period from July 16th to October 11th, 2011.

During Vassa Retreat, Devotees are encouraged to provide the 4 requisites to Bhante.  They are namely Robes, Food, Accommodation and Medicines.

Bhante will be leading blessing services on requests, chanting of Bojjhanga Sutta and meditation sessions so that devotees can develop their spirituality.

At the end of the Vassa Retreat, Devotees will get a great opportunity to perform a Kathina Ceremony on Sunday, 23rd October 2011 which is one of the greatest and most meritorious activities.

Therefore we are going to invite Bhante to observe Vassa this Friday 15th July, 2011 at 8.30pm - 9.30pm at Ti-Ratana Lumbini Garden.  You may join this invitation ceremony as well and obtain the blessings from the Triple Gem.

Saddhu Saddhu Saddhu!
