Are you tired of the hustle and bustle of the city? Do you want to take a break from your everyday life to relax your body, heart, and mind after a long and strenuous year?
Do you want to learn more about the monastic way of living? Or do you simply want to do something different and enriching this summer break?
UNIBUDS will be holding its long-awaited final event of the year, the Summer Retreat, at Wat Pa Buddharangsee Buddhist Monastery on the 24th to 26th November 2017. The title of the retreat has just been set and it is - *drumroll* - "Deciphering the Three Poisons"! If you have ever wondered what is greed, hatred and delusion, please feel free to join us as we embark on a wonderful journey to learn about the topic! Come and experience an unforgettable escapade of a forest monastic life; explore the fresh air and peacefulness away from the tediousness of city life, and enjoy the warmth of summer learning more teachings of the Buddha and mingling with spiritual friends!!!!
What will we be doing? Under the guidance of Venerable Chao Khun Samai, the abbot of Wat Pa Buddharangsee and UNIBUDS' Patron, we will be practising meditation, listening to Dhamma talks, getting involved in a sketch program and much more.
What if I'm not a student, UNIBUDS member nor full-on Buddhist? ALL ARE WELCOME! The retreat - and the Monastery itself - is about opening the doors of Buddhism for you to explore, freely. However, due to the limited space, UNIBUDS members are prioritised and a first-come-first-serve basis applies.
Please register soon so you don't miss out!
* As a sign of respect to the Monastery, participants must attend the full retreat for 3 days and 2 nights.
