The festive season is upon us again, many are spending money buying gifts for family and loved ones. Shops and stores offer their gift cards as an alternative way of buying present. Members of Wat Albury have taken the idea of gift card as a mean to say thank you from the local Buddhist temple to the community in this special occasion.
The gift card offers a Special Organised Meditation Session with a complementary Thai buffet lunch for two people.
“This special organised Meditation session is for everyone, regardless of their belief or faith. All human are the same, we have body and mind. Meditation is the practice to improve the ability of your mind. We will not include tradition and Buddhist teaching in this session.” Ajahn Satit said.
Ajahn Satit, the monk instructor on the day, has been an instructor of the Middle Way Meditation to English speaking attendances for almost 10 years. He also mentioned that about 90% of the people who participated in the Middle Way Meditation Retreat weekend in Sydney each month are non-Buddhist.
To take this offer, simply obtain a gift card from The Buddha Shop or Da’s Thai Massage on Dean Street. Then activate the card by SMS card number (on the back of the card), your name and the person accompanying you. An SMS confirmation will be sent back to you to confirm your places.
