Dear Friends,

Full-Moon Uposatha Service

Monthly Dhamma Discussion
Date: 9 March 2012, Friday
Time: 12pm - 1.30pm
Venue: Pustaka Nalanda
Topic : What Buddhism Is Not

Generally, there are various interpretations on what Buddhism is.  Unfortunately, most of the remarks are not in accordance with the teachings of the Buddha.  During this session, we will identify or make known the various misinterpretations about Buddhism.  The participants can use this platform to ask questions and clear their doubts about Buddhism.

Do join us this Friday for the Dhamma discussion, and if you have any friends or relatives who have questions or doubts, bring them along as well!  Simple lunch is provided for all participants. Please click here for our address and location map.  We look forward to seeing you on Friday.
