Uposatha Observance days are days committed to renew dedication to Dhamma practice. Lay people may observe the Eight Precepts on Uposatha days, and will intensify the practice and deepen the knowledge of Dhamma. For those who find it less flexible to participate in the full-day program, we encourage the use of this opportunity to visit the temple, attend to Dhamma talks, and to join the meditation sessions, as your time permits. If you plan to attend the Uposatha Observance Day, you may have your breakfast at home and be present at the Dharmapala Institute premises by 8.30 AM. You may bring a dish to offer the monks for the meal-dana and share with the other participants. Please contact us via temple@buddhistvihara.net if you wish to contribute towards the meal-dana offerings, so we can coordinate the event.
 
With Metta,
