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
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.
