Join the 5th anniversary of Bodhisaddha Forest Monastery’s opening, in conjunction with Bodhikusuma Buddhist & Meditation Centre’s 15th anniversary.

This significant milestone is a chance to show our appreciation to all those who have offered support over the years and to give inspiration for the future building of the monastery.

There will be a groundbreaking ceremony for the building of Bodhisaddha Hall through the marking of the boundaries of the building by the donors. The large gathering of monks will chant auspicious verses and give blessings to all.
