Dharma Day - Bliss of Truth and Reality

Dharma Day - Bliss of Truth and Reality

Saturday 20 July 2024 9:30am – 3:30pm

Dharma Day is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the transformational teaching of the Buddha and the teachers who have supported us to tread the path with confidence.

We will begin the day with the Saturday Morning Meditation, followed by talk from Dharmanada; Dharma: Bliss of Truth and Reality.  After a shared vegan lunch, we'll send the afternoon engaging in shared reflections and holding a  Pūjā, bringing our hearts and minds to the Dharma in collective practice. See below for timings. 

9.30 am - Meditation 

10.30 am - talk from Dharmanada - Dharma: Bliss of Truth and Reality

12 noon - Vegan shared lunch

1.30 pm - Dharma exploration

2.30 pm - Puja

Please bring a plate of vegan food to share – just enough for you and one or two others so we don’t create waste! 

All are welcome to attend some or all of the Dharma Day celebrations, no booking or previous Pūjā experience needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to book?

No - just turn up!

How much does the day cost?

We don't charge a fixed price for our classes but instead invite you to make a donation to the centre to help us cover our running costs.

A donation of $15-20 would help us to cover our costs, but everyone is equally welcome, even if you cannot give anything at all.

Do I need to be a Buddhist or a regular at the centre?

Everyone is welcome, but the day will be especially suitable for those who have been to the centre at least a couple times before.

I can't make the whole day - can I come for just some of it?

Of course! You're welcome to come for whatever parts of the day you can make - just try to turn up at one of the times on the programme so we're not in the middle of an activity.

What is pūjā?

A pūjā is a traditional Buddhist ritual that includes chanting and making offerings.

If you have not done pūjā before, please let the leader know so they can give an introduction.
