    OSAMU TEZUKA'S BUDDHA 2

    Director: Toshiaki Komura
    PG13 (Some disturbing scenes)
    Sat 27 Sep | 5:00pm

    BUDDHA 2 is a spectacular representation of the life of Siddhartha, 2500 years ago in India, where the man gave up his country to unravel and understand the meaning of life and death. He went on a journey to feel and experience pain, suffering and death, of which humankind cannot escape, in order to understand the true meaning to life.

    The film is part of an epic saga by anime master Osamu Tezuka, powerfully depicting the battle scenes and the spectacles of nature as well as the inner struggles of the characters. This film has drawn international attention with its imaginative dramatization of the Buddha’s life story.

    HAPPY

    Director: Roko Belic
    PG 13 (Some nudity)
    Mon 22 Sep | 7.30pm

    Everyone wants to be happy. But are you happy? What does it take to be happy? From the beaches of Brazil to the villages of Okinawa, Roko Belic, Director of Genghis Blues brings us on an infectiously uplifting documentary about happiness. The science and psychology ground the studies while the individual stories on happiness send the human spirit soaring. If you are not feeling tip top at the start of the film, you will, by the end have a glimpse of what it means to be truly and unquestionably happy.

    ROOM TO BREATHE

    Director: Russell Long
    PG 13 (Some coarse language)
    Sun 21 Sep | 4.45pm

    This film documents the mindfulness journey of a class of troubled American teenagers. As a meditation practitioner himself, the director of ROOM TO BREATHE, Russell Long, strongly believes that targeted socio-emotional learning programs like mindfulness lessons offer great promise for helping kids to reconnect with their innermost selves, society-at-large, and the natural world; and only when such bonds are re-established can then deep real-world problems be solved.

    Biography of Speaker
    Venerable Sayalay Susila was born in Pahang, Malaysia, in 1963 and ordained as a Theravada Buddhist nun in the Burmese tradition at the age of 28, in Malaysia. Sayalay began developing her keen interest in insight meditation while at the University of Science Malaysia, where she obtained a degree in mass communications in 1988. After graduation, Sayalay worked as a high school teacher for a year and a half. But disenchanted with worldly matters and desiring to be dedicated to the practice more than ever, she resigned her post to take up meditation full time. Six months after her ordination in 1991, she went to Panditarama Monastery in Myanmar, where she practiced intensively for nearly three years under the guidance of the famous meditation master Venerable U Pandita Sayadaw.

    In 1994, wishing to cultivate concentration meditation, Sayalay moved to Pa Auk Forest Monastery in Myanmar. She placed herself under the guidance of renowned monk, Venerable Pa Auk Sayadaw, and remained in the forest for 14 years. In addition to an assiduous program of meditation, she also learned the Abhidhamma, ancient discourses, and the Pali language from Pak Auk Sayadaw. Meanwhile, she became his English-to-Chinese interpreter in Myanmar and abroad.

    During her travels in Myanmar, she also practiced different meditation methods, such as those taught by Shwe Oo Min Sayadaw, Mogok Sayadaw, and Sayagyi U Ba Khin. As a result Sayalay has become an unusually accomplished teacher able to present the subtleties of the Buddha's teachings in a simple and direct way. In particular, she presents the most profound division of the teaching, the Abhidhamma, in a lucid manner grounded not in pedantic philosophy, but in actual meditation experience.

    Sayalay has traveled extensively as a meditation and Dhamma teacher, presenting the Abhidhamma and Sutta expositions in formal lectures and talks, and has conducted meditation retreats throughout the U.S., Canada, Australia, Taiwan, Latvia, Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia. She speaks fluent Chinese, English, Burmese, Hokkien, and Malay. Her publications include Unravelling the Mystery of Mind and Body through Abhidhamma (second edition), published in both English and Chinese, Mindfulness of Breathing (English), The Practical Manual of Abhidhamma (Chinese), and The Nine Virtues of the Buddha (Chinese).

    Oct 08Full Moon in October
    Abhidhamma Day
    The Festival of Lights



    The Full Moon Day of Thadingyut (October) is
    of special significance to the Buddhists, not because it
    is the end of the Rains Retreat (Vassa ) but because it
    highlights one of the most important events in the life
    of Gotama Buddha.

    According to Buddhist chronicles, the Tathagata
    or Buddha, the Enlightened One, went to the Tavatimsa
    Heaven to preach Abhidhamma (Higher Subtleties of
    the Dhamma) to His mother, who passed away seven
    days after His birth and was reborn in the Tusita Heaven
    as a Deva called Santussita.

    The Buddha propounded Abhidhamma for the
    first time there in the presence of Santussita and other
    Devas for 90 days. At the end of the Rains Retreat
    (Vassa) i.e. on the Full Moon Day of Thadingyut, the
    Tathagata descended to earth (to the human abode) at
    the city of Sankassa.

    Now Buddhists observe Abhidhamma Day annually
    in commemoration of the Buddha’s return from
    the abode of celestials to that of human beings. It is a
    significant religious occasion as the Abhidhamma is
    really the golden knowledge which will help one to discard
    wrong views and to acquire the right views for
    one’s total liberation from all miseries. Buddhists offer
    lights to the Buddha image and perform meritorious
    deeds on this day in accordance with the tradition which
    has been upheld since the life time of the Buddha.

    The Festival of Lights in the month of
    Thadingyut (October) may seem an occasion for
    rejoicing and merry-making but in essence, it is an
    auspicious occasion for spiritual delight and merit
    making.

    Biography of Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo

    Born in England in 1943, and brought up in London, Ani Tenzin Palmo became a Buddhist at the age of 18, and went to India in 1964. On her 21st birthday, she met Khamtrul Rinpoche, an important lama of the Drukpa Kargyud School of Tibetan Buddhism, and asked him for refuge and nun's precepts.

    In 1967, Ani Tenzin Palmo received Shramanerika vows from H.H. the 16th Karmapa in Rumtek Monastery, Sikkim, and in 1973, she travelled to Hong Kong to receive the Bhikshuni ordination. In 1984, she went for a strict retreat for 3 years, meeting only a Lahouli helper who brought supplies twice a year. After 24 years in India, Ani Tenzin Palmo felt it time to return to the West, so she moved to Italy where she stayed mostly in retirement, but occasionally gave teaching at the local Dharma centers. In 1993, she returned to India and attended a 10-day conference of the Western Buddhist teachers in Dharamsala.

    This time, the Lamas of her monastery at Tashi Jong requested her to start a nunnery for women in Tibet, and the Himalayan border regions, as well as other women who may wish to meditate. Nuns will be trained in the meditations, a meditational retreat center where women can practise in a conducive environment.



    Some of the books written by the Venerable available on-line are:
  • Three Teachings

    Note: The Venerable is in the process of setting up the Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery which is a Tibetan Buddhist nunnery for the education and training of young women from the age of 15 within the Drukpa Kargyu tradition. The nunnery is situated in the Kangra Valley of Himachal Pradesh in India. For more information about the project please email: eliz_palmo@hotmail.com
