On full moon days, we hold a Sila program and Meditation, beginning at 9:00 a.m. in the Center.
This gives an opportunity to take the eight-precepts, listen to a Dhamma talk and engage in meditation until 5:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome to join for these programs.
The next full moon event (sila observance) will be on Saturday, Sept 14, 2019, which is also known as "Madhu Purnima" (Honey Full-moon). On this auspicious day "honey" is brought to shrine to acknowledge the way a monkey brought honey to the Buddha when He was in the forest.
The program will be as follows - start at 10:00 am - Five precepts, Buddha Puja, Sangha Dana, a meditation, dharma talks, blessing chant and sharing of merits- The ceremony will be followed by lunch. All are warmly welcome!
