Dhammānausāri Day Retreat 2017
(On 9th August – From 8am to 5pm)
Dear Dhamma Friends,
Organised on each of Singapore’s National Day since 2009 by Venerable K. Rathanasara, One Day of Mindfulness is the annual day retreat of Dhammānusāri.
The retreat serves as a reminder of our responsibility to the community in which one lives as well as a reminder that to be a person who can contribute to the lives of those around us, we must first begin first by cultivating the good in ourselves.
The programme of this entire day of contemplation on the Dhamma takes the form of meditation practice alternating with Dhamma talks and a question-and-answer session conducted by Venerable K. Rathanasara.
Join us on this day and take a first step towards being kind to yourself, and then, to those around you.
Yours in the Dhamma
