    Exhibitions: On The Nalanda Trail: Buddhism in India, China and Southeast Asia



    During the past, many Asian countries interacted with each other through peaceful means via religion, trade and political missions. Many Chinese pilgrims went to India for Buddhist studies while Indian monks went to China to disseminate the faith. The footprints of Buddhist pilgrims can be seen over the Silk Road all along Central, northwest India as well as the Southeast Asia. Traversing India to modern Pakistan, Afghanistan, Central Asia, Tibet, China, Korea and Japan, Java, Sumatra, Thailand, Cambodia and Laos - Buddhism not only affected the lives and cultures in those regions but also left us with a legacy in the arts and literature.

    This exhibition will highlight some of the significant landmarks in Buddhist history, through the travel records of the monks Faxian, Xuanzang, Yijing and the spread of Buddhism at centres of higher learning such as Nalanda in eastern India which was visited by many students from all over the Asian world. The exhibition will be illustrated and accompanied by a display of Buddhist art and artefacts borrowed from museums in India and Southeast Asia and will include some objects from the ACM’s own collection.

    Getting there:
    Directions
    ACM Empress Place is a 5-minute walk from the Raffles Place MRT station.

    Parking
    Public parking is available along Empress Place next to the Museum building; at the basement carpark of the New Parliament House, at Six Battery Road and at One Fullerton across from the Fullerton Hotel.

    Nov 18Palelai Buddhist Temple
    Kathina Day - 18 November 2007, Sunday


    This ceremony is performed once a year after the end of the vassa for the purpose of offering a set of robes to the Sangha. Traditionally, this robe offering can be made within one month from the end of the vassa, beginning from Devo Day. To facilitate attendance by our members and devotees, we have chosen 18 November 2007, a Sunday, to commemorate this occasion.

    The origin of the ceremony could be traced back to the 25th year after the Buddha's enlightenment when he undertook the annual vassa at the Jetavana Grove near Savatthi in the Kingdom of Kosala in India. The Buddha received a group of 30 monks from Saketa who came to pay their respects to the Buddha and listen to the Dhamma. They were all drenched and muddy after the journey and they did not have spare robes to change into. At the invitation of a lay disciple, the Buddha then permitted the initiation of the Kathina robe offering to enable lay supporters to provide dry robes to the Venerables. Since then, the ceremony is observed annually during this period.

    Traditionally, the lay community would offer a bale of white cloth for the Sangha to cut, dye, and sew into a set of robes within a day. This practice is still being carried out in monasteries in Thailand and in our sister monastery, Wat Santi, in Johor. However, as we do not have a full quorum of monks in residence during the vassa ( a pre-requisite for this practice in the Buddhist Monks' code of conduct), the lay community of Palelai Buddhist Temple will offer three sets of ready made robes and a bale of white cloth to the venerables during the ceremony. The usage of the bale of white cloth would be decided by the Sangha as they deem appropriate.

    Devotees who wish to support this event may proceed to the designated donation counter set up in Palelai's main shrine or the administration office in our new Chedi Dhammasathit building. Receipts will be issued to all well wishers upon receiving of donation. Cheque donations must be crossed and made payable to Palelai Buddhist Temple. Please kindly indicate Kathina Day 2007, your name, contact number and return address at the back of the cheque and mail it to Palelai Buddhist Temple, 49 Bedok Walk, Singapore 469145. The donations collected will go towards the purchase of three sets of robes, the bale of white cloth, the meal Dana for the venerables, and any other expenses incurred for this ceremony.

    The programme for Kathina Day 2007 @ Palelai Buddhist Temple is as follows:

    KATHINA DAY 2007 @ PALELAI BUDDHIST TEMPLE
    18 Nov 2007 Programme

    09.00am Pindapata (Alms Round) - Please offer dry and packed food only

    Dharma Talk by Ajahn Brahmali


    Date : 12 Dec 07 (Wed)
    Topic :A Spiritual Journey
    There are two types of Spiritual Journey: The Journey to the Buddhist Holy Sites and the Journey of the Heart towards peace, compassion and happiness. But these two journeys are in fact the same. The purpose of a pilgrimage to India is to give a sense of inspiration and perhaps historical perspective and thus a deeper understanding and greater commitment to the Buddhist practice.

    Date :13 Dec 07 (Thur)
    Topic:The Meaning of Life
    Is there a meaning to life? If not, then what is life all about? The basis for understanding what life is all about is to recognise that all beings have feelings. Because all beings feel, all beings want to be happy. Buddhism is the teaching that shows us the way to attain maximum happiness both for ourselves and others. Why can this be so hard to see? It is because the illusion of a permanent self gets in the way.

    Biography of Speaker

    Ajahn Brahmali, a Norwegian monk who was ordained at the Bodhinyana Monastery, is a disciple of Ajahn Brahm. Before becoming a monk, he was working in the shipping industry in Singapore, Japan and Norway.

    We are very fortunate that Ajahn Brahm will be coming to Singapore one more time this year to give us a talk and blessings!

    On SUNDAY, 30 December, there will be a pot-luck dinner at BF Center from 5:30pm! Come to the centre from 5pm as there will be fun activities for children, a calligraphy demonstration for the adults, a talk on Looking after Your Bones and Muscles . . . . and more.

    Ajahn Brahm will be giving a talk on "Happiness & Gratitude" at 7:30pm. Come early to get the best seats!

    Best to park at South Buona Vista Road. If you take an MRT, Vivo City and Buona Vista stations are the closest. Our website will provide you with more information!

    Do invite your family members and friends along for a blessing by Ajahn Brahm. If you have personal questions to ask, come early.
