Description

Do come to join us for the 1 Day 8 Precepts Observance Day.

It will lead by Resident Bhante, Venerable Dr. K Sri Pemaloka Nayaka Thera.

Registration Required.

Venue: Aaloka Buddhist Center. 187 Sim Avenue (Next to Lorong 21) Left Side. Singapore 387497.

Date Time: Saturday 27/12/2018 from 7:00am to 7:00pm.

Activity: Chanting and Meditation

Dress Code: White T-Shirt and Pant below knee.

The Eight Precepts are for upāsakas and upāsikās who wish to practice Buddhism more strictly than through adherence to the five precepts. The eight precepts focus both on avoiding morally bad behaviour, as do the five precepts, and on leading a more ascetic life.

During the day we are going to pratice:

  1. I undertake to abstain from causing harm and taking life (both human and non-human).

  2. I undertake to abstain from taking what is not given (for example stealing, displacements that may cause misunderstandings).

  3. I undertake to abstain from sexual activity.

  4. I undertake to abstain from wrong speech: telling lies, deceiving others, manipulating others, using hurtful words.

  5. I undertake to abstain from using intoxicating drinks and drugs, which lead to carelessness.

  6. I undertake to abstain from eating at the wrong time (the right time is after sunrise, before noon).

  7. I undertake to abstain from singing, dancing, playing music, attending entertainment performances, wearing perfume, and using cosmetics and garlands (decorative accessories).

  8. I undertake to abstain from luxurious places for sitting or sleeping, and overindulging in sleep.
