Vassa Āraddhana: Saturday, July 12th, 10:00 am
Invitation for the Tisarana Saṅgha to Stay for the Traditional Rains Retreat
On July 12th, Ambassador Pisan Manawapat, the Thai Ambassador to Canada, along with the lay community of Tisarana, will be inviting the Tisarana Monastic Community to reside at Tisarana for the traditional rains retreat and receive the necessary requisites during this period (July 12th to October 8th). Over 2500 years ago, the Buddha asked that Bhikkhus stay in one place during the vassa period, only allowing short trips for specific occasions during this time. Without the generosity of our lay friends this would of course not be possible.
The Vassa Āraddhana Ceremony will be held at Tisarana on Saturday, July 12 beginning at 10:00am. All are welcome to partake in this traditional ceremony.
Please note that the Tisarana Kathina will be held on SUNDAY, November 2nd in the town of Perth at the Civitan Hall (6787 County Rd 43, Perth, ON). We will post more information on the Kathina later in the summer.
