Two senior monks from Sri Lanka Buddhist Temple took part in the alms-round in Seri Kembangan.

Report by Muditā Chan

On Saturday 16 August, our monthly ‘Pindacāra’ was held at the Seri Kembangan Jalan Besar market.  Volunteers were there early to engage with market-goers, informing them about the monks coming for alms.  The weather took a sudden turn and rain started pouring.  Nonetheless it did not dampen the spirit of many devotees who patiently waited under umbrellas for the arrival of venerable monks.

Many families with children in tow came to make offerings on the monks' alms-round.

Devotees joyfully offered food to the two senior bhikkhus (monks) from Sri Lanka Buddhist Temple, Sentul.  Families with children in tow were also seen making offerings – what a great way to start them young into the spirit of generosity!  We wish to thank all devotees and volunteers for participating in this delightful ‘Pindacāra’.  Sadhu anumodana.

Even toddlers were aided by their parents to make offerings to the Sangha.
