Pa Bah Offering Ceremony – Sunday, Oct. 4

Please join us on October 4, 2015 for a traditional ceremony organized by local friends who wish to offer support for Temple Forest Monastery. It will also be an opportunity to meet with friends and the monastic community including visiting monks, and to hear a Dhamma Talk.

Everyone is welcome to join us for any part of the occasion: an alms-round and shared meal, a Buddhist ‘Offering Ceremony’ (called a “Pa Bah”) and a Dhamma Talk offered by Luang Por Viradhammo, abbot of Tisarana Buddhist Monastery in Perth, Ontario. We will be honored also to have with us Ajahn Sudanto, abbot of the Pacific Hermitage in White Salmon, WA.
