Ven. Shantha Thero is well-known among the Adelaide Buddhist community since he has previously conducted several Dhamma programmes in 2011, 2012 and 2017. During his last visit (January – March 2017), Shantha Thero concentrated on ‘Samma Ditti’ and ‘Anathma’. We are very happy to inform that Thero will be staying with us for a longer period this year, which will enable us to organize several Meditation retreats and Dhamma programmes.
Retreat Dates: This momentous period will be starting with two residential retreats encompassing the Christmas and New Year break.
1st retreat: 21st (Friday) to 28th (Friday) – December 2018
(On 21st room allocation and refreshments between 5 and 8pm, on 28th conclusion of the retreat at 2pm)
2nd retreat: 31st (Monday) December 2018 to 7th (Monday) January 2019
(On 31st room allocation and refreshments between 5 and 8pm, on 7th conclusion of the retreat at 2pm)
Cost: We are able to offer this invaluable opportunity free of charge, much merit to two devotees who sponsored both these events.
Venue: Buc Lin Vietnamese Theravāda Buddhist Meditation Centre, 99 Reedy Rd, Buckland Park SA 5120.
We can only accommodate 24 devotees per retreat due to space limitations. Therefore places will be allocated on first-come first-served basis.
