We invite you to join us to celebrate Buddha’s Birthday on Sunday, April 17, at the Chapel Hill Zen Center following our regular meditation schedule from 9:00am-10:30. At 10:30 a.m. there will be a short talk directed to the children. The children will then have a procession to an outdoor altar where they will offer incense and bathe the Baby Buddha. Following the ceremony, there will be a vegetarian potluck picnic. Beverages and birthday cake will be provided.
Children, families, and friends are welcome! During our regular programming of sitting and walking meditation from 9:00am – 10:30am, the Children’s Program will be active decorating the pagoda or “flower house” and birthday cakes for Buddha. If you are able, please bring flowers for decorating the pagoda for the Baby Buddha. Contact Maura at firstname.lastname@example.org if your children will be attending the children’s program.
