Event: Lights Festival in Singapore's Burmese Buddhist Temple

There will be an event marking the 1 month anniversary of the Saffron Revolution at the Burmese Buddhist Temple in Singapore on the 26th of October, Friday.

Details as follow:

Time: 1700 hrs
Event: Alms offering to monks and nuns

Time: 1900 hrs
Event: Lights festival

This also coincides with the Full Moon Day of Tha Din Kyut (the end of the Buddhist lent) when devotees traditionally offer alms to sangha , and young people pay respect to their elders. This year, the celebrations in Burma will be very much muted as the country and its sangha are still reeling from the crackdown just one month ago.
