For seven weeks after the Buddha’s Enlightenment on Wesak full-moon in May, He contemplated on the Dhamma with His perfectly clear faculty of comprehension. Then, He travelled for seven days from Bodhgaya to Sarnath, where He preached the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta on Asalha Day, the full-moon in July.
It is during this time that Nalanda members observe the ‘Gimhāna Retreat’ annually through relatively intensive Dhamma learning and practice. We warmly invite you to join us from 2 June to 17 July, to come and understand the Dhamma through progressive, communal and personal practice. The theme for this year’s retreat is, “Living Compassionately towards Peace and Harmony”.

Gimhāna Sunday Service | Every Sunday, 9.00am − 12.00pm
