On Saturday 3 June, the community gathered once again to participate in the monthly Pindacāra (monks on alms round) at the O.U.G. and Happy Garden markets. On this occasion, Ven. Alokavamsa and Sayalay Mitta Devi from Indonesia afforded the laity the opportunity to partake in the wholesome deed of supporting the Sangha.
A familiar sight to many at the markets, stall owners and market-goers quickly prepared and made their offerings at every turn. Volunteers also shared with those new to this practice, about how we can appropriately support the monks and nuns, and cultivate the values of generosity and compassion.
We rejoice in the generosity and increasing understanding of members of the community in this long-standing tradition. May the merits that we have acquired be the supporting conditions of our attainment of peace and happiness. Sadhu anumodana!
