Auspicious Greeting! Due to limited space available following the Covid restrictions and the observation of social distancing, the Five Precepts and Bodhisattva Precepts retreat has already been fully booked and Nan Tien Temple will NOT be able to accommodate any more registration requests.

NEW Five Precepts and Bodhisattva Precepts applicants will now need to go to the Parramatta branch temple (22 Cowper St, Parramatta) and participate in the Precepts Conferring Ceremony which will be live streamed on the day.

Those taking refuge in the Triple Gem ONLY will NOT be affected though.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
