Notice for the students who are planning to attend the class in person :

Dear friends, we are planning to have a repeat Pali class on Wednesday for the benefit of the online Audience and for those who missed the last week’s class. 

If any of you missed the first two classes please make sure you watch the Dhamma US YouTube video on Pali alphabet and study about how you prepare for this course. 

We also discussed the third class to be held on coming Saturday as we cannot have it on July 28 due to a program at Lankarama. 

You can make an appointment with me if you want my help just before and after the class. 

I will be available one hour before and after the class for those who need some extra help. Please remember this time we will make it very serious and will have several tests for you to complete the Pali 101 - Course for Beginners. Only those who successfully complete the Level One will be promoted to the next Level. Good luck

Importance of Poson Full Moon Day:

Poson full-moon poya day (Poson Poya Day/Poson Festival) is celebrated the arrival of Buddhism in Sri Lanka in the 3rd century BC, a festival of great historical and religious significance celebrated island-wide by Buddhists. Poson, held on the full moon day of June, commemorates the occasion over 2,000 years ago when Arahat Mahinda, son of Emperor Asoka of India, converted King Devanampiyatissa to Buddhism. The main center of celebration is Mihintale, the ancient monastic complex where the royal missionary monk Mahinda perched the first sermon to the ruling king and at Anuradhapura the ancient capital, to which large crowd of pilgrims converge. Mass religious observances, illuminations pageants are part of the celebrations.


Vesak Celebration - 2018 
at Rathana Inaternational Buddhist Center, 
Anaheim, California

There will be a special Tesette Ñāna Vandanā (salutation to the 73 wisdoms of the Buddha). The amazing Vesak Pandol has been created by a young Buddhist monk named venerable A. Punnaratana.

 The young kids of the temple Sunday school have created Triple auspices occasions of the Buddha (Birth, Enlightenment and Passing Away). The whole temple has been decorated with colorful Vesak lanterns and Buddhist flags.
