    Bhante Dhammavuddho's 2018 Teaching Tour



    We are honoured & fortunate to have Bhante Dhammavuddho in Singapore this weekend. Bhante is the founder abbot of the Vihara Buddha Gotama. In 1983, he went forth into the homeless life in the Mahayana tradition. Three years later, he was reordained in the Theravada tradition in Thailand. Thereafter, he spent about 10 years living the solitary lifestyle in quiet places and has written numerous booklets on Buddhism.

    Bhante Dhammavuddho is scheduled to deliver Dhamma talks at Buddhist Fellowship on the following days:

    12 May 2018, 1.30 - 3pm "Story of My Life"
    13 May 2018, 10am - 12pm "Stream Entry Is Possible for Laypersons"

    Everyone is invited to attend the talks and grab the opportunity to offer lunch to Bhante Dhammavuddho at 11:30am on Sat, 12 May & Sun, 13 May after the Sunday Service. Do come and participate in these meritorious deeds.

    Fully Enlightened One."

    Breathe, You Are Alive ( STAY-IN RETREAT)



    Living in a fast-paced society like ours, we are often carried away by the demands of a hectic life at school, at work, and even at home.

We learn to enjoy sitting, walking, and eating in ways that help us recognise the beautiful gifts that life offers us. We receive nourishment by touching the beauty of nature, the beautiful presence of people around us, and the beauty in ourselves.

    Mindfulness Meditation is the one and only way for the purification of the mind, for the overcoming of sorrow and lamentation, for the extinguishment of suffering and grief, for walking on the path of truth, and for the realisation of Nirvana.

    Buddha taught Mindfulness Meditation in the Satipatthana Sutta. Take this opportunity during the retreat and learn how to practise Mindfulness Meditation with Venerable Sayadaw U Pyinnyarnada.

    Note: This is a stay-in retreat

    Venerable Sayadaw U Pyinnyarnada is highly respected by monks, novices and lay people for his calm and peaceful demeanour. With patience, compassion and loving kindness, Sayadaw gives Dharma talk to devotees both within Myanmar and abroad.

    In 1990, under the guidance of Chanmyay Sayadaw, Sayadaw practised Vipassana meditation. In 1995, Sayadaw became a meditation teacher at the Chanmyay Yeiktha Meditation Centre in Hmawbi, Myanmar. In 1996, Sayadaw became a meditation teacher at Thailand Retreat with Chanmyay Sayadaw. Subsequently, Sayadaw took on the role of a meditation teacher at Chanmyay Satipahtarna Vihar in South Africa for four years.

    Thereafter, Sayadaw went on a Dharma Mission in many countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, The USA, South Africa and South Korea. He now trains both local and foreign meditators at the Chanmyay Yeiktha Meditation Centre in Myanmar.

  • Jun 28Full 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)
    ( Note: Try this site which is my favourite explanation for :- NO INNER CORE - ANATTA . By Sayadaw U Silananda )
