On Monday July 6, the community entered the traditional three-month ‘Rains Retreat’ or Vassa which runs from the full moon of July to the full moon of October. In 2020, the dates for the vassa are July 6 to October 2.
For these three months there is a public Dhamma talk scheduled to take place every Sunday afternoon. The first talk will be held July 12 with the last one scheduled for September 27.
Starting at 3 pm every Sunday
The Sunday talk will be live-streamed starting at 3 pm until 4.30 pm. The talk will take around 45-60 minutes, followed by any questions about the topic. Questions can be asked by pressing the following button:
