Samathidhammaram Centre, 114, Moo 5, Ban Rangsaiboowa, Tambon Klongtan, Amphor Ban Phaeo, Samut Sakhon, 74120 Thailand  (Address (in Thai): บ้านปฏิบัติธรรมสมาธิธรรมาราม , 114 หมู่ 5 ต.คลองตัน อ.บ้านแพ้ว จ.สมุทรสาคร ).

Duration: 7 –18 December 2014  (2014年12月7日 至2014年12月18日)


We would like to invite those who have faith to join us in the upcoming short term novice/ nun ordination and observation of ubasaka & ubasika (8 precepts) for both male and female adult and children.

Through sincere practice, enormous merits are acquired. Nothing equals to self-practice. Let us share these merits with gratitude to the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha, our parents, ancestors and kammic debtors. Being reborn life after life, we may not be aware of the past actions we have done in the past. We aspire to transfer our merits through this practice to our kammic debtors (beings whom we have wronged in the past). May they rejoice in the merits and forgive us.

May the merits we shall acquire bring happiness and comfort. May all beings be well and happy.

Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!
