Retreat and Dana Day September 16th, 2018 9:00 am -3:00 pm
"Dana" means generosity in the Pali language. Our Sri Lankan friends from the Denver area will be coming up to celebrate the beauty of giving. They will dedicate the benefit of their generosity to their loved ones. This type of occasion is common in Asian cultures but lesser known here in the West. It would be wonderful to have our Western friends join us for this occasion. The intention is to combine the practice of meditation and investigation of Dhamma with the affirmation of ethical principles and a traditional puja ceremony. You will have an opportunity to take or reaffirm the three refuges and five precepts if you wish. If you are able to, please bring a small side dish for the table to share along with the homemade delicious Sri Lankan food. All are welcome. Free will offerings can be made to support Ayya Dhammadhira who lives as an alms mendicant and volunteers her time as a service to the community.
Come join us at 15 Columbia Road, Colorado Springs, CO 80904
