1) In conjunction with Qing Ming, SJBA is organising a Pattidana on this Sunday, 14 April, 8am to 11am in SJBA Shrine Hall to dedicate merits to the departed ones. Pattidana is for the benefit of those departed relatives and friends who may have been reborn in certain unfortunate state of existence.

When they rejoice repeatedly, their unhappy birth will be transformed to a happy one.
