Beginning of Rains Retreat 2017
July 8th @ Dhammasala Forest Monastery
The rains retreat is the traditional retreat during the rainy season lasting for three lunar months. During this time, Buddhist monks remain in a single place.
In some monasteries, monks dedicate this period to intensive meditation and practice. In countries such as Thailand, some laity will take monastic vows for this
period and then return to lay life afterwards.
