Jhana Grove, Western Australia
9am–1pm on Sat August 7 2021
A warm welcoming to everyone to celebrate Ajahn Brahm’s 70th birthday, which will take place at Jhana Grove , Serpentine on 7th August 2021 from 09.00 am to 01.00 pm (AWST). Come and reflect on all goodness and kindness that you have received from our great master Ajahn Brahm, who has changed lives of many people around the globe. Join us on this special day to show your sincere gratitude and there will be some exciting events happening including a live auction conducted by Ajahn Brahm.
No prior registration is required. All are welcomed.
As this event will be live streamed we ask that everybody be seated in the hall before 9 am.
For those of you who can’t make it to Jhana Grove the party will be streamed live from our You Tube channel and celebrations will happen in various dhamma centres across the globe. Watch live from 9am Perth time on Saturday the 7th of August.
Please Note: On this day, Ajahn Brahm wishes to have no lunch, which means there will be no Dana or shared lunch at Jhana Grove. As not all monks will be attending the birthday celebration, those who wish to offer dana to these monks may still go to Bodhinyana Monastery and either:
• Make your dana offerings before 9am and continue on to Jhana Grove for the celebrations OR
• Stay at Bodhinyana for dana/lunch and not attend the celebrations at Jhana Grove.
You are welcome to bring your own packed lunch if you need to eat during this time and are of course welcome to make a cup of tea.
