Puja is a Pali word, which means ‘honour, worship and devotional attention’.
Devotion and customary services refine the emotions and integrate the heart with the intellect. They help to generate faith and energy to maintain one’s commitment to practice.
Puja service takes place every Sunday at 10 am. Puja is held in the Shrine Hall. It involves making offerings of candles, flowers and fruits, and chanting of the Suttas in Pali and English. The chants include both doctrine and devotional offering.
The Puja is followed by a Dhamma talk given by Bhante or an eminent guest speaker.
