The Asalha Puja Day is an auspicious day for Buddhist. It is the day, the Buddha set in motion the wheel of truth (Dhammachakkappavattana Sutta), the start of Vassa (Rain Retreat), the Sangayawana (the first Buddhist Congregation) and the beginning of Upasampada (Higher Ordination) of the Sangha.

Buddhist monks and nuns traditionally spend Vassa inside the monasteries, dedicating the period to meditation and practice. It falls on the Full Moon day in July and for 2018 it is actually on the coming Friday, 27 July.

Members and friends are encouraged to attend the Full Moon Puja on this Friday, 27 July 2018 at 8.30 pm where the Dhammachakkappavattana Sutta will be chanted. Bro. Kho shall lead us in this chanting.
