Day of Miracles
Thursday 5 March
This is one of the four big Buddhist festival days. + More Details
At the age of 40, the Buddha was challenged to a competition of miracles by six great Hindu teachers, representing the six schools of Hinduism existing at the time. Buddha accepted the challenge because he saw that many would be benefited and achieve the state of an arhat, and that people in the future would be inspired to practice.
He performed miracle after miracle during the first fortnight of the lunar New Year. The rival teachers were immediately eclipsed. On the fifteenth day Buddha enabled all beings to see the six realms with many immediately converting to Buddhism. This day marks that event.
Significantly the karmic effect of positive (and negative) actions are magnified 100 million times on these holy days so practitioners try to be virtuous and keep their minds positive. (8 vows taken for 24 hours with an attitude to benefit others)
- 6am Precepts
- 2pm Set up extensive water bowls and light offerings
- 7.30pm Shakyamuni Buddha Puja
Price: By donation - donations of food or flowers is welcome
The Buddha understood the fundamental problem of the human condition - negative emotions, discontent and the lack of satisfaction experienced by many. His remedies are practical, effective and could change your life for the better. Len, an experienced down-to-earth practitioner, will present an easy introduction to some of the wonderful qualities in the Buddha’s teachings.
Mindfulness in Daily Life Workshop
Mindfulness is not only useful to help you remember where you left the car-keys, or where on earth that "safe place" is that you stored something important. If we want to be kinder, more skilful in our words and actions and if we want to become better practitioners, learning to be mindful of what is happening particularly in our minds, as well as around us is imperative.Price: TBAView the PDF poster for this workshop
"[I]t is not survival of the fittest, but survival of those who cooperate the most, that makes a species prosper. None of us exists independently; we have to depend on others simply to stay alive. Thus, helping others and sharing wealth, benefits both self and others. Generosity makes us happy now, enables our species to continue to prosper, and creates positive karma that brings us prosperity in the future." His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
