A lovely evening spent with Ven Thubten Chokyi from Hayagriva Buddhist Centre, Ven Hue Can from Sunyata Buddhist Meditation Centre along with Geetha Mendis and Sandra Henville from Buddhist Society of WA celebrating International Bhikkuni Day by sitting on country in a sea of spring Djilba flowers to talk about the Buddhist Women who inspire us, how to respond to modern challenges and of course meditation wisdom! We raised about $300 for Sakyadhita to support Australian Bhikkhunis travelling to study overseas. Thank you everyone for your warm and generous spirit! Sadhu sadhu sadhu! lekso lekso lekso!
Every year, the monastic community (Monks and nuns) go on a three month retreat called the “Rains Retreat” from mid July to mid October. During this period, they do not visit our centres for teachings as it’s a time for deepening their own practice.
While the monks and nuns are away, we will have some interesting guest speakers coming in to give the Friday Night talk.
TURNING POINTS 2023 (Rains Retreat Speakers’ Series 2023). Hear stories of everyday dhamma as told by monastics and lay practitioners from various Buddhist traditions.
