PINDACARA AND PATTIDANA

Pindācāra is the practice of collecting alms-food by Theravada Buddhist Sangha members (monks and nuns). With Pindācāra, the Sangha need not worry about food and this affords them time to practise the Dhamma. Since the time of the Buddha, lay people have been supporting the Sangha with food, robes, shelter and medicine. In return, the Sangha provide guidance to the laity on Buddhist teachings, thus forging a close, respectful, and symbiotic relationship between the two communities.

 

Pindācāra are carried out by the monastics at Bandar Puchong Jaya morning market during New Year, Wesak, Ching Ming and 7th Lunar month period. KMBS also educates the public what type of offering is allowable for the Sangha. It is an opportunity for lay devotees to offer cooked food and medicinal requisite to the Sangha, practise generosity and gain much merit. In addition, this serves as an outreach program to introduce KMBS to the public.

 

PATTIDANA memorial services are held in conjunction with Ching Ming and the 7th Lunar month. Members and devotees can offer food to the Sangha members, recite sutta and transfer merits to dearly departed relatives and friends.
