Alms Giving to Palelai Buddhist Temple Monks

3 March 2024, 08:15 AM - 08:45 AM

About this event

The daily alms-round, where monks (bhikkhus) gather alms-food in their alms-bowls while barefooted, is practised by the resident bhikkhus of Palelai Buddhist Temple. This practice allows the public to learn about the Theravada Buddhist tradition's monastic way of living and the mutual support between monastics and lay supporters.

Anyone is welcome to offer only consumable and/or uncooked food requisites into the bhikkhus’ alms-bowls. The bhikkhus are accompanied by our volunteers to the alms-round that takes place at 8:15am to 8:45am at the following locations:


Monday - Blk 823 Tampines Market

Tuesday - Blk 85 Bedok North Street 4 Food Centre

Wednesday - Blk 216 Bedok North Street 1 Food Centre

Thursday - Blk 18 Bedok South, in front of Blk 16 Bedok South Market & Food Centre

Friday - Blk 511 Bedok North Street 3 Food Centre

Saturday - Blk 538 Bedok North Food Centre

Sunday - Blk 58 Upper Changi Road


Upon returning to the monastery, volunteers will re-offer the cooked food to the bhikkhus during the meal offerings of the same day. All uncooked food requisites will be utilised responsibly by the Kitchen to prepare the subsequent days’ meals.
