This year SJBA Educare Program in SJBA will be held on 6 December 2015 to provide poor students with school items to start the new school term. It is expected that about 500 to 600 needy students will receive the school items on 6 December 2015. Each student will receive a full set of school items which consists of school bags, shoes, books, stationary, etc. which costs about RM100.00. The amount may not be a lot but it is a simple yet significant gesture of ours to show our care and concern to poor students. We hope that through this simple but sincere gesture, the students are motivated to study better and achieve academic success and eventually success in life.
If you wish to contribute to this Educare Program,please contact Sis Lily at Tel. 03-56315299 or bank into CIMB (a/c : 1261 0000 122 052).

Dhamma Relieves All Ills
First Wednesday of Every Month, Beginning 6-Feb-2013
SJBA Vihara, 8.30pm
“The suttas the Buddhists recite for protection are known as Paritta Chanting. Here, ‘Protection’ means shielding ourselves from various forms of evil spirits, misfortunes, sickness and influence of planetary systems as well as instilling confidence in the mind.”
-Late Chief Ven. Dr. K. Sri Dhammananda-
Once the Buddha saw Venerable Kassapa and Venerable Moggallana were suffering and ill, He expounded the doctrine of the Seven Factors of Enlightenment. Even when the Buddha Himself was afflicted with illness, Elder Cunda was requested to recite that very doctrine with due reference. In each occasion after listening to the doctrine they were delighted and were liberated from their illnesses. As seemed, these Paritta recitals have the potency to bring about a cure.
SJBA Chantingfarers have an aspiration that by chanting the Bojjhanga Sutta will relieve one from all ailments. By this asseveration of Truth may you be well and happy.
