    Jul 09Full Moon in the Chinese Sixth Lunar MonthAsalha Puja or Dhamma Day.





    This commemorates the Buddha's first discourse, the Dhamma-Cakka-Pavattana Sutta (the Discourse on the Turning of the Wheel of Truth) in Sarnath (Isipatana, Benares) - the Deer Park , which he gave to the group of five monks with whom he had practised in the forest for many years. Upon hearing this discourse, one of the monks -- Ven. Kondañña -- gained his first glimpse of Nibbana, thus giving birth to the Noble Sangha. The annual rains retreat (vassa) commences the following day.

    Note: At the end of this first sermon, the Venerable Kondañña became a Sotapanna (a person at the first stage of enlightenment) and then, according to the Commentaries, for example, the Commentary on Vinaya, the other four disciples became Sotapannas, one on each of the four following days. On the first day after the full-moon day in July, the monk Vappa became a Sotapanna; on the second day, Bhaddiya; on the third day, Mahanama; and on the fourth day, Assaji. After they became Sotapannas, they all asked Buddha for ordination. Buddha ordained each of them by calling to them, "Come monks." On the fifth day after the full-moon day, the Buddha assembled them and preached to them this discourse Anatta-lakkhana Sutta. -The Discourse on the Not-self Characteristic (no-soul or anatta)

    Join Dr Alan Wallace in 'The Four Applications of Mindfulness



    A meditation retreat with Dr Alan Wallace

    Follow Dr Alan Wallace in this week-long meditation retreat to cultivate mindfulness by focusing on the four close applications of mindfulness which forms the foundation of Buddhist insight practice. Learn to meditate deeply and cultivate mindfulness of the body, feelings, mental states and mental objects to purify the minds of its afflictions.

    Dr Alan Wallace will offer an oral commentary on Shantideva’s chapter on “The Four Close Applications of Mindfulness” in his Compendium of Practices (Siksasamuccaya). This chapter presents ways of meditatively exploring the nature of the body, feelings, mind, and phenomena from the perspective of the Middle Way view of Nagarjuna, with a special emphasis on their lack of inherent nature. A central theme will be the cultivation of discerning mindfulness, in which we will increasingly distinguish between phenomena presented to our senses and the conceptual projections that we impose on reality.

    The retreat consists of lectures, guided meditations and group discussions.

    Date: 7-13 Aug 2017 ( Mon –Sun)
    Time: 9am-4.30pm
