KID'S METTA | 6-week Applied Loving-kindness Meditation for kids aged 7-12
With much love and uncountable efforts, today I'd like to introduce a new website for Sri Lankan Bhikkhuni Sangha. They're having a new Opening Ceremony on August 4th, 2018. A group of devotees from Singapore, led by Jinxing brother and Bhante L.A. Thero, happily dāna 200 good quality Thai robes on account of this big coming event. Thus I have spent time fulfilling the very basic concept of the site. Here it is:
When I refer to "Sri Lankan Bhikkhuni Sangha", there is no separation between a precept nun vs a bhikkhuni living here by their mere title. Rather, my love for renunciant sisters has conquered all other unwanted and troublesome issues happened over the past month. I wish this place would turn the Dharma blossoms, thereby becoming a bridge to unite all renunciant sisters. So far as it goes, Lankan society associated with its typically political, cultural, and traditional characteristics may need a timely, internal call to bond themselves together in an only and united sangha. The journals shared by Univ. scholar Mrs. Gihani de Silva have touched my heart regarding social strata of Lankan nuns since the date of bhikkhuni revival in Sri Lanka. Their monastic lives are still in a hardship, from education to ethics of living, from inward dilemmas to outwardly social issues. As an observant traveler, there's nothing more I could do to help. Even though equality and equity are values I respect in Buddhism, real-life situations are somewhat uncontrollably occurring day by day. Let's the Triple Gems bless us, and Dhamma protects us.
Should a thought of compassion arises in you, you can contact me for any kind of contribution towards Sri Lankan Bhikkhuni Sangha.
May all beings be happy and at peace,
