Myanmar Buddhist Monasteries

The monastery is a meeting centre of Buddhist Community. Monks in the monastery are provided with four offerings i.e. monastery, robes, food and medicine by the donation of the individual or cooperative devotees.
Monasteries have always been free educational centres of Buddhism. They stand as self-reliance schools for the children as well as novices and monks. Every children can learn basic morals and civics, social rights and duties towards others there. It also plays the major role of Buddha's heritage, culture and social life. Monasteries provide not only free education, but also meal and lodging as necessary.
Moreover, it is the only best place that is quiet for the practice of insight meditation to attain nibbana. It is also the location where dhamma discussion and discourse carry out. Therefore, one should visit monastery and make offerings (dana), precepts (sila) and meditation (bhavana). In Singapore there is a certain monastery in which all of these meritorious deeds can be performed.
