Year End Retreat 2020 with Ajahn Brahm & Ajahn Brahmali
Buddhist Gem Fellowship (BGF Malaysia) and Bodhinyana (Singapore) are jointly organizing this virtual zoom retreat in place of the biannual 9-day BGF Year End Retreat by Ajahn Brahm. We have put up a daily schedule for participants to follow, with 3 daily zoom sessions by our teachers. Ajahn Brahm’s retreats are easy going and caters to various levels of practitioners, from the beginners to the experienced. Experienced participants may choose to strictly adhere to the schedule, practice the precepts and maintain noble silence throughout the retreat.
The current Covid-19 pandemic has changed our lifestyle one way or another and we encourage you to take this opportunity to participate in this retreat which can be done in your home. Such an experience will open up your perspective on the practice in the various day to day conditions that you are in.
This is also an opportunity to raise funds for these two centres and also towards Bodhinyana Monks Expense account. BSWA is building 2 new monasteries in Western Australia, one in Roleystone and one in Albany.
