During the time of Buddha, the monsoon season of India lasted for around three months. These three months became a period of retreat, known as “Vassavasa”. During Vassavasa, monastics lived together in the monastery and did not step outside. They focused on studying and practicing Buddhism.
Supporting the studies and practice of monastics during the Vassavasa period would accumulate great merit towards wisdom and good fortune, and attainment of buddhahood!
Great Wisdom Buddhist Institute invites you to support the different needs of the monastics during the Vassavasa retreat period where monastics focus on their studies and practice of Buddhism.
Any excess offering amount will be directed towards GWBI's Operating Fund.
