The Buddha recommended recitations as protection against certain suffering. Belief in the effective power to heal or protect the sacca-kiriya or in acknowledging something completely true is an aspect ascribed to the paritta. Recitations can also take place on favorable occasions, such as the opening of a new monastery, the birth of a child, and the termination of studies. Recitations provide blessings to those who attend or listen to them. As well as those to whom they are devoted.
Discourses about paritta are also recited on unfavorable occasions, illnesses, dying, the loss of a loved one, or, for example, at a funeral or death anniversary. They can also be recited to mitigate natural disasters and other adverse effects.
We will be broadcasting live from Sri Lanka
Recitations take place every Sunday at 2 pm CET.
You can find other dates in the calendar.

If we want to maintain a "real" atmosphere and feel safe in the company of all participants in a "virtual" meeting, Venerable Bhikkhunī Visuddhi asks you to follow these rules, please:
use your real name (not pseudonym, etc.) to access the room
if the situation and the relevant context allow, make yourself visible during discussion sessions, sessions that will be interactive for all other participants (including the teacher), via your webcam
note: interactions are obviously not "mandatory", silent presence is fine
during the meditation, close the relevant webcams and rejoin the video during the next discussion
DO NOT RECORD our meeting in any form (so that each of you can ask questions in peace and freedom, etc.)
Thank you for your understanding.
The teachings are given in the form of a gift (dhammadāna), and monastics as in the time of the Buddha, are dependent on the donations of the laity. By making a voluntary contribution, you will support the monastic life of the Venerable Bhikkhunī Visuddhi and the existence of the Karuṇā Sevena monastic dwelling.
We look forward to seeing you online.
