December 2019 Ordination Program

Short Term Monk/Novice/ Nun Ordination (短期出家) / Ubasaka & Ubasika (8 precepts) (view Mandarin version 查看中文版)



We would like to invite those who have faith to join us in the upcoming short term monk/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!
