On Sunday 10 January, Venerable Sri Pandita Dr. Henepola Gunaratana gave an insightful Dhamma teaching on how those who learn and practise the Dhamma are blessed with spiritual happiness.

He said that “the Dhamma is IN us”.  The cause of suffering as well as its cessation are both within our minds.  Understanding this can liberate us from unhappiness; while not understanding it keeps us unhappy.

Ven. Gunaratana also shared many words of wisdom, inspiring stories and anecdotes with devotees.  We thank Ven. Gunaratana for his wonderful Dhamma teaching and wish him good health, comfort, peace and success in all his noble endeavours. Sadhu, Bhante!

Many devotees came to offer lunch 'dāna' to the venerables after Service Sunday.
