This programme organised by the Buddhist Society of Western Australia offers an opportunity for all meditators to honour, with reverence and respect by practising the Noble Path, our esteemed Dhamma Teacher and spiritual guide, Ajahn Brahm.


A coordinated group Metta Meditation Retreat is a fitting tribute to mark the occasion of Ajahn Brahm’s 70th birthday because loving kindness is one of Ajahn Brahm’s strongest qualities, that he both emphasises in meditation and suffuses us with.


Together we will meditate and share the merit of our practice so that Ajahn Brahm may continue to have good health, live a long life immersed in the supreme bliss of the Dhamma and continue imparting his profound wisdom to all beings everywhere for a long time to come.


Guidance for meditation will be provided by senior members of the Sangha (including Ven Canda) and streamed online via a YouTube channel at designated times.


The meditation program will run over six days, leading up to other wholesome activities planned for Ajahn’s 70th Birthday.

The first session starts at 9:00 pm on Saturday, 31st July and the last session is at 6:00 am on Friday, 6th August, to facilitate participation by meditators in various time zones.
