AMIDA PURELAND BUDDHISM IN PERTH
Sangha evenings in Perth and Bodhi Retreat in Malvern
Our next sangha evening will be on
Wednesday November 6th
The Bodhi Retreat in Malvern
4 - 8 December.
This year I''ll be attending the Bodhi Retreat (for Buddha's Enlightenment Day) in Malvern, rather than hosting a retreat day here in Perth, as we held last year.
This is an ideal opportunity to meet Dharmavidya and other senior members of the Amida Order, to practice with the sangha at our main UK centre at Amida Mandala Buddhist Temple and to experience 24 hours of continuous Nembutsu practice.
Satya has written: Hi all - Kaspa & I have just designed the 2019 Bodhi schedule which has been approved by Dharmavidya. We'll hold the retreat space, with guest talks by Dharmavidya, Susthama and Kaspa, with a 24 hour continuous period of nembutsu, with ceremonies and lots of space for practice, small and large groups and informal connecting with the sangha (note 2 hour lunch breaks & a free Saturday afternoon).
We hope that you'll join us for some or all of it - each day is also stand alone. The theme is a surprise which we'll reveal nearer the time : )
We already have rooms booked. We do have space for a fold-up bed in the library (Sujatin - I have booked this), and there are 2 basic bunk beds - if you'd like these let us know. We can also ask our local congregation if they can put people up - let us know if you'd like us to ask.
(Contact Satya for the local accommodation list).
We're suggesting £10 a day donation for food plus £30 for dana for Dharmavidya and to go into temple funds. Khema has agreed to organise the food - we'll be looking for main & helper chefs nearer the time.
So, if you haven't already do let us know you're coming (or if you're a maybe) so we can begin to plan.
Looking forward to it,
Namo Amida Bu, Satya
