Since the Lord Buddha’s time, the Rains Retreat lasting 3 months is designated for the Sangha to remain at one place and intensify their Dhamma and meditation practice. It is as significant for the lay followers to use the Rains Retreat to deepen their practice of giving, observe precepts and meditation – practices that are especially important in this tumultuous time.
We sincerely invite everyone to participate in the auspicious Offering of Buddha Ratana Cetiya during this Rains Retreat. The Cetiya is made up of Buddha statues that are endowed with the 32 Great Man Signs. Donors will be blessed with good health, longevity, easy attainment of perfect wisdom and Nibbana.
