St. The Church of England School Visit // Wat Phra Dhammakaya London

Sixth grade students of St. The Church of England Primary School went to Wat Phra Dhammakaya London to study meditation and Buddhist knowledge on Friday June 29, 2018.  Wat Phra Dhammakaya London gave a warm welcome and taught basic Buddhist knowledge to them.

The teaching monk told the history of Buddhism and the temple.  He also showed them the photos of various activities held by the temple.

 

 

After that, the teaching monk taught meditation by introducing them to place their minds at the 7th base of the body, visualize a crystal ball and repeat Mantra “Samma Arahang”.

 

Then they meditated together.

After the meditation session, the students visited the Buddhist exhibition and rooms within the temple, where Kal. Khruawan Sookcharoen helped explained and introduced places within the temple.  Finally, the children learned the Buddhist practice such as giving and keeping the 5 precepts before taking some group photos. All activities on that day were joyful and impressed everyone very much.
