Robes Offering 2021

About this event

Robes offering is an annual event in the Buddhist tradition. Monks during the 4 months of rainy season spend more time in temples and attend to lay devotees by teaching the Dhamma and helping them to practice meditation. At the end of the season, in order to show their appreciation and to give thanks, lay devotees would choose one day to gather at temples to offer robes to the monks. The Saffron robe symbolises monkhood and renunciation from worldly life. On the other hand, a robe is also one of the 4 requisites essential to monks in their daily lives. So robe offering is a great meritorious deed a lay Buddhist can do. In the Buddhist Library, this tradition is observed and kept alive as one of our annual events.

Your support for this auspicious event is much appreciated.

Started in 1983 as Singapore’s first public Buddhist book service, the Buddhist Library (BL) aims to promote a holistic understanding and appreciation of Buddhism through study and practice. The BL is not exclusively affiliated to any particular Buddhist school or tradition. Taking on a universal approach to Buddhism, it encourages Buddhists irrespective of school, tradition or orientation, to come together to study, interact and cooperate with each other. The library has established close links with many other Buddhist organisations in Singapore and overseas.

Our Vision:
Well-being through the holistic study and practice of Buddhism.

Our Mission:
To provide a gate-way to the Dhamma through education, sharing of personal experiences and the conduct of mutually beneficial activities in a vibrant and supportive environment.
