The Special Programme for Youth with Venerable Udairiyagama Dhammajiva on 28th January 2023 was a resounding success with far more attendees than expected. The need for more such programmes for young people was obvious.
Venerable Brisbane DhammaRakkhitha who accompanied Venerable Dhammajiva and conducted part of the programme, has very kindly agreed to continue the programme on Zoom every month and next session will be on March 11th from 3.30 pm – 5.30pm at Kenwick Temple.
Venerable DhammaRakkhitha has been conducting meditation and dhamma discussion programmes in Brisbane for many years. Since his ordination in May 2021 he has devoted himself to teaching mindfulness with Samahitha and Sati Pasala groups. Having lived as a layman for many years in Australia and as a father, he has a good understanding of the pressures and issues faced by teenagers and youth.
The monthly programme will include walking and sitting meditation and discussions.
