1) In conjunction with Qing Ming, SJBA is organising a Pattidana on this Sunday, 23rd March 2014 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 are aware that their relatives or friends have performed some meritorious deeds dedicated to them, they can be relieved of their suffering. When they rejoice repeatedly, their unhappy birth will be transformed to a happy one. It is the duty of relatives to perform these acts of merits for the departed ones. The Pattidana will start with the offering of flowers and lights at 8am, Metta Recitation, Buddha Puja, Dhamma Talk by Bhante Nyanaramsi followed by Dedication of Merits to Departed Ones.
2) The “Introduction to Buddhism Course” from 21 Feb to 11 Apr 2014 (Fridays), is from 8.30pm – 10.00pm at SJBA Shrine Hall, conducted by Uncle Vijaya, Bro Charlie Chia and Dr. Chan Kah Yein. All are welcome. For further information, please call Sis Lily at 03-56348181.
3) Buddha Puja on Sundays for both English (9.30am) and Mandarin (11.30am) will resume on 30th March 2014. The Dhamma Talk in English will be on “The 3 Bliss Bringing Things” by Dr. Chan Kah Yein at 10.00am.
May You Be Well & Happy, Always!
Happily we serve,
