Buddhist Sunday School Resumes

Buddhist Sunday School for Kids

When: Sunday, August 21, 2016, 10-11 am, and each Sunday thereafter.
Where: Sitagu Buddha Vihara
Who: Junior level, ages 4-12, Senior level, ages 13-17.
How much: The Dhamma is priceless, therefore there is no cost.

We offer these classes to impart Buddhist values, understandings and conduct to the younger generation. Kids will learn ethics, generosity, respect, the basic rituals and chanting, and the fundamental teachings of Buddhism (Dhamma) through short teachings, discussions, stories, meditation, activities and performance.

Classes are in English. Burmese kids, American kids, kids of all ethnicities are welcome. We hope to arrange for carpools from Austin and for parallel activities for adults. Kids and parents are encouraged to stay for lunch after the food offering to the monastics at 11:15. Let other parents know about the Sunday school, bring a neighbor kid or two (we respect all faiths).

The initial meeting will be largely organizational. We will assess interests, organize carpools (if that is an interest), meet the teachers, etc., but will have activities for the kids. Please try to come to this meeting if you can. Inquiries can be made to ashin.cintita.
