robe offering & Sanghadana on the occasion of the end of the three months rains retreat

from November 2nd till 4th

 

The schedule is like in a regular meditation course. Arrival on November 2nd should be between 12 o´clock and 16 o´clock. In the evening is an open meditation evening and Dhammatalk in which participants can join. On November 3rd there will be a small ceremony.

It is a tradition that in the month after the end of the three months rains retreat robes and other requisites are offered to the monastics and monasteries/ centers (Sanghadana). As the rains retreat often is a period of intense practice, retreat and study, offerings on that occasion are considered to be very meritorious.


Vesakh ceremony and helpers day

from May 16th till 19th

 

Vesakh is one of the most important Buddhist holidays and the birth, enlightenment and passing away of the Buddha is commemorated. On that days we will have one day for a "busy bee" for gardening and cleaning works and one day of practice. Please contact us for the detailed schedule if you are interested. 

Participation is only possible for the complete periods and one needs to have practiced already before with us or in one of our centers.
