    We will celebrate Buddha’s Birthday on Sunday morning, April 8, at the Chapel Hill Zen Center following regular the meditation schedule, beginning at 9:00 a.m. At 10:30 there will be a short talk directed to the children. They 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! At 9:00 a.m. the kids will decorate the pagoda or “flower house” outside. Please bring balloons, bubbles, and banners for the procession and flowers for decorating the pagoda for the Baby Buddha.
