• The significance of the Bodhi Tree

    Bodhi tree is usually translated as Enlightenment Tree. Bodhi or ‘Enlightenment’ here refers to the Path-Fruition Knowledges, Omniscient Knowledge, Nibbana. We can say that Bodhi tree ‘is the tree under which the Buddha gained enlightenment’. Therefore the Bodhi Tree is a remembrance of the Buddha’s enlightenment. It is a symbol of the Enlightenment of the Buddha.

I hope we can emulate this example too! (and the reply): Nandaka Vihara: Yes, we do have the ‘platforms’ (ie opportunity) for local Buddhists to emulate the Myanmar dedication to service: At this moment there are a few helpers group by devotees in Nandaka Vihara. These are: 1. Sima & Kuti Meritorious Group:- This group looks after the cleaniness of the Sima Hall and its surrounding. 2. Dhamma Ratha Transport Merits Group:- This group of devotees offered to drive the Sangha to the places below when the need arise, such as: i. Immigration office in Prai or ii. Doctor's or clinic when not feeling well or iii. airport, bus station, train station etc. or iv. to house dana when the donor asked for help or v. etc NOTE: For this group, we need both male and female volunteers because the males will drive the monks and the female will drive the nuns (Sayalays) when the need arise. 3. Kathina Day Helpers Group This is the group of helpers on Kathina day. There are many different types of work need to be done on Kathina day such as kappiya for Sangha, books counter, cleaniness, etc 4. Wesak Day Helpers Group This group will be quite similar to Kathina Group; however, as some Kathina Day helpers will not be able to help on Wesak day, this event helpers is put separately. So, to all devotees who would like to help please leave your name and contact with the office. Please state which group you would like to help. NOTE: You can put your name for more than 1 group or all 4 groups. That means you can register your name for all 4 groups. Phone: 0175023031 Sadhu Sadhu Sadhu. 法悅林於现今有几个信众法工组。他们是: 1. 戒堂与孤邸功德组:- 现今这组负责照料戒堂与周遭的整洁。 2. Dhamma Ratha 法乘交通功德组:- 当有需要时,这组信众将提供载送僧众至以下的地方,例如:- i. 北赖移民厅 或 ii.当僧众生病时需去诊所 或 iii.机场,巴士车站,火车站等 或 iv.当布施者要求帮忙载送去施主家接受供养 或 v. 其他 备注: 对於这组,我們需要男性及女性自愿者因为当有需要时,男性将负责载送男性出家众及女性将负责载送女出家众(Sayalays)。 3. 卡帝那日法工组 这是卡帝那日的法工组。于卡帝那日有各种不同的工作需要完成如当僧众的净人,书摊,清理等。 4. 卫塞日法工组 这组与卡帝那组大约相似;但是,由於有些卡帝那日法工无法於卫塞日前來帮忙,这庆典的法工被另外安排。 所以,对全部有意帮忙的信众,请于办事处留下您的名字与通讯号码。请注明您想要参与的组。 备注: 您可以参与超过一个组或全部四个组。 (电话: 0175023031) 善哉! 善哉! 善哉! ...

On Sunday, more than 100 Myanmar helpers came to do voluntary services in the monastery. They have helped to clean the monastery from hill top to the river bank area. After having finished the work, they also listened to a Dhamma talk, followed by sharing of merits. We all rejoice in their meritorious deeds: Sadhu, Sadhu, Sadhu.
