His Holiness

We had a really interesting time practising the Padmasambhava Medicine Buddha at Bente's house in Eudlo.  Really nice group of practitioners with deep meditation capability.  Thank you to Bente for organising and for providing the venue, the food and drinks.  Lillian for her meditations and her support.  Alan and the dogs for putting up with us encroaching on their territory! 
Next weekend we have Reiki Two and the week after, Bellbunya and the residential lojong retreat.  If you are interested in any of the programme, even if you can't attend the full retreat or want to be non residential, do write to us.
ps Reiki for beginners is at the end of the September.

We will be honoured if you can join us for Venerable’s evening talks and come to observe and meditate during the day while the Mandala is being made.

-         Appropriate attire is worn and decorum is observed in the presence of the monks.
-         Dhamma seekers come 15 minutes in advance of Venerable’s talks so there’s minimal disruption during Venerable’s talks.
-         Children who are able to absorb Venerable’s teachings are welcome for the talks.
-         Younger children may observe the Mandala making but parents are requested to help them observe silence so other observers and meditators remain undisturbed.
-         Visits are restricted to the timings given in the schedule since the events are being hosted in a home.

With metta,
