Precepts are taken on the 15th day of each month at 6.30am. This is a purification practice when we eat one meal - lunch at 12.30pm and then refrain from any other food for the rest of the day. It is also a time to refrain from negative thoughts, speech and actions.
Tara puja is chanted on the 8th day of each month (check our calender for times). Buddha Tara is a female Buddha who helps to rescue us swiftly from mental problems and physical dangers in much the same way as a mother cares for her children. Please call us to check it is on.
