Do Good, Avoid All Evil, Purify Your Mind.
SONGKRAN, traditionally a Thai New Year Day is celebrated with festive gusto in Chiang-Mai province, Thailand and has become a three-day carousel of merit-making, socializing and good-natured water throwing.
This year, Palelai will hold a one-day celebration on Sunday, 12th April 2015. The Event Organizer for this event is Mr Roy Phoon.
Devotees are welcomed to celebrate the pouring of dedication of water onto the Sangha's palm on this Thai New Year day. The public water throwing amongst the devotees will be subject to a secluded area due to safety to all members and devotees.
The Resident Monks and Board of Management welcome you and your family to join us in the celebration.
We are pleased to inform you that we will be organising an Advanced Meditation Course for those who have attended the Structured Meditation course and the details are as follows:
Starting date : 5 March 2015
Time : 7.30pm – 9pm
Venue : Meditation Hall, 3rd Floor, Chedi Dhammasathit Building
Course Duration : Ends 28 May 2015
Frequency : Every Thursday
Instructor : Sebastian Wong
This course is aimed at those who have completed the Structured Meditation Course for beginners. The objective of this course is to give attendees the opportunity to settle the mind down, learn how it settles down, sharpen our ability to settle the mind down, and eventually be able to sit comfortably for a full hour or more. Along with the sitting practice will be discussions of the Dhamma teachings for understanding dependent co-arising, the five khandas & their inter-dependencies, the factors of the eightfold path & how they relate to each other in practice, and the wings to awakening.
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.
For registration/enquiries, please email Sebastian at email@example.com or call at our administration office during office hours.
