Palelai Buddhist Temple

 Structured Meditation Course for Beginners

 

We are pleased to inform you that we will be organising the next structured meditation course and the details are as follows:

 Starting date           :         21 July 2016

Time                      :             7.30pm – 9pm

Venue                    :             Meditation Hall, 3rd Floor  Chedi Dhammasathit Building

Course Duration    :            12 sessions  

Frequency             :             Every Thursday

Mentor                   :             Sebastian Wong

 

This course is aimed at those who would want to gain an insight into how Buddhist meditation can be applied to their daily lives to live a peaceful & happy life, and to manage stress arising from pressures of work, family, ill-health, loss of loved ones etc.  Attendees do not need to have prior knowledge of the Buddha’s teachings or meditation training as the course is structured to introduce Buddha Dhamma and breath meditation in line with the teachings of the Forest Meditation tradition of Thailand. Instructions and course materials will be given in English and will include applying the Buddha’s instructions on breath meditation to develop calmness & peace of mind (samatha), and cultivation of discernment (insight wisdom - vipassana).  The course follows the Buddha’s gradual teaching from the basic steps on to the factors leading to enlightenment.    

 

The course is free of charge and attendees are advised to come in comfortable clothes (loose pants, light shirts).  As the monastery is a sanctuary for celibate monks and the practice of modesty & restraint of the senses, ladies are kindly requested NOT to come in shorts (bermudas are acceptable), low cut blouses, or other revealing clothing.

 

 

“The mind that remains unshaken; under the stroke of life’s changes,

 that is the highest blessing/protection” – Lord Buddha

 

 

May All Beings Be Well and Happy Always !
