Dear Members and Devotees                                                                                    

 

Palelai Buddhist Temple will be celebrating Asalha Puja Day on Saturday, 8th July 2017, followed by the Buddhist Lent (Khao Phansa) on Sunday, 9th July 2017.

 

This day commemorates the important event where the Sangha was first formed.  The Buddha accepted his first five disciples after they listened to the Buddha expounding the First Discourse, The Wheel Of Life (Dhammacakkhapavattana Sutta) at the Deer Park in Isipatana on the full-moon day.

 

A candlelight circumambulation will be held after the evening chanting, followed by the commencement of the three-month rain retreat the next day.  During the retreat, the Sangha will stay in the monastery to practise Dhamma and meditation.  The rain retreat (Vassa) will end on Thurday, 5th October 2017.  The Event Organiser for this evening is Kanya Yeo.

 

The Resident Monks and the Board of Management invite all members, devotees and your families to join us in the following meritorious activities.

Structured Meditation Course for Beginners

posted 16 Jun 2017, 19:27 by Wat Palelai

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

 

Starting date           :      13 July 2017

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 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 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 !
