Thursday Night – Meditation and Parinirvana Puja
Thursday February 17 , 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Everyone is welcome on Thursday Night with two drop-in meditation classes at 7pm for regular meditators and an intro class for those with no meditation experience. Learn to meditate with instruction and guidance from an experienced meditation practitioner while meditating with others.
At 8pm, be a part of a special event in the Buddhist Calendar, the Parinirvana Puja, which commemorates the Buddha’s passing from this human life into the mystery of full Enlightenment. So, it is not a time for sadness but a time to celebrate the life of the Buddha. It is also an opportunity to reflect on our impermanence and to remember those close to us that have died in the last 12 months.
If you have a loved who has died there will be an opportunity to place their picture on the shrine and have their name read out during the puja.
Venue: Melbourne Buddhist Centre/ 23 David Street/ Brunswick
