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.

Note: For those who are not able to make it on 30 November 2015, please notify for us to see if other arrangements can be made.

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

Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!
