Sunday Talks 2021

NarindoEvents & Ceremonies, News

On Sunday July 25, the community entered the traditional three-month ‘Rains Retreat’ or Vassa which runs from the full moon of July to the full moon of October. In 2021, the dates for the vassa are July 25 to October 21.

For these three months there is a public Dhamma talk scheduled to take place every Sunday afternoon. The first talk will be held August 1 with the last one scheduled for October 17.

Starting at 2 pm every Sunday, except 1 & 8 Aug at 3pm

The Sunday talk will be live-streamed starting at 2 pm until 3.30 pm, except the first two which will start at 3pm until 4:30pm. The talk will take around 45-60 minutes, followed by any questions about the topic. Questions can be asked online with the form at the bottom of this page.

After the livestream, all these talks will be published on our video channel (see Teachings > Videos) and on our audio podcast/library (see Teachings > Audio).
