Observing Magha Puja - 17th February
This year the full-moon day of Magha Puja Observance falls on Tuesday 19th February. To make it convenient for as many people as possible, at Aruna Ratanagiri we plan to observe it on Sunday 17th February. All welcome. In the morning there will be the usual shared meal; it is recommended you try to be here by 10.00am with formal proceedings expected to begin around 10.15am. After determining the 5 Precepts, the Paritta are to be chanted while offerings of rice are being placed in the bowls (tak bart). A short Dhamma Talk is to follow before the actual offering of the meal. In the evening there will be the usual gathering for puja in the Dhamma Hall at 7pm with a talk by Luang Por Munindo around 7.45pm on the theme of the Ovada Patimokkha.
