2023 PBC June Poson Monthly Program

Event Details

June monthly program coincides with the celebration of Poson full moon day which marks the arrival of Buddhism to Sri Lanka some 23 centuries ago.  In commemoration of this special day, we have organized an eight precepts program which includes chanting, meditation, Dhamma talks and discussions.
Please plan to observe 8 precepts (half-day retreat) or to attend the lunch and the afternoon Dhamma talk (Part II of the Program Schedule).   
Please note that PBC calendar had this program listed as June 18th, Due to Bhantes’ work schedule we have changed the date as JUNE 11th 2023
