    We invite you to join us to celebrate Buddha’s Birthday on Sunday, April 23, at the Chapel Hill Zen Center following our regular meditation schedule from 9:00am-10:30am. 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 and decorating the pagoda or “flower house” for Baby Buddha. If you are able, please bring cut flowers for decorating the pagoda. Contact Maura at maurahigh@gmail.com if your children will be attending the children’s program.
