Hungry Ghosts: Halloween Special with Bhante Akaliko

This Halloween, join Bhante Akaliko for spooky stories from the ancient Buddhist text, the Peta Vatthu.

In Buddhist cosmology, hungry ghosts are reborn in a miserable state of woe due to evil deeds from their previous life. Tormented by the consequences of their past actions, they lead horrid lives of constant pain and deprivation. Suffering from incurable hunger, their giant bellies are thwarted by tiny mouths. Forced to survive on filth and other horrors, they have putrid bodies and their breath stinks. But that’s just the beginning of their suffering!

This Halloween, find out how to avoid becoming a hungry ghost in your next life by joining Bhante Akaliko for a spooky journey through the ghost stories of the ancient Buddhist text, the Peta Vatthu.

Sunday 31st October 7:30pm AEDT (UTC+11) Sydney/Canberra/Melbourne
