Poya-Day Children’s Program
September 24, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
This is a day of learning and practising the Buddha’s teachings. The greatest gift parents can give their children is the gift of Dhamma. As we prepare our children for life in an ever-more connected global world, it is important that we connect them with the liberating teachings of Gautama Buddha.
The day is lead by monks trained in the Theravada Buddhist tradition of Mahamevnawa.
