Sunday Dhamma talk by Venerable Buddharakkhita & Offering of Meal Dana

We are pleased to inform you that Ven. Buddharakkhita will be giving a Dhamma talk after Sunday Puja.

The title of the talk is "Mangala Sutta".

"The Maha-Mangala Sutta shows that the Buddha's instructions do not always take negative forms, that they are not always a series of classifications and analysis, or concerned exclusively with monastic morality. Here in this sutta we find family morality expressed in most elegant verses. We can imagine the happy blissful state household life attained as a result of following these injunctions." (From The Ethics of Buddhism by S. Tachibana, Colombo 1943, Bauddha Sahitya Sabha).

All are encouraged to attend the talk and also bring a cooked vegetarian dish for Dana offering at 11 am.  Please bring your cooked food (healthy vegetarian), fruits or desserts to LG floor by 10.30 am.
