Please Join Us for Buddha’s Virtual Birthday Celebration
We will celebrate Buddha's Birthday on Tuesday, April 14 at 7pm during the regular Tuesday night sit; socializing to follow. See Virtual Programming webpage
or GBZC calendar
for Zoom details.
Everyone is invited, as you are able, to have the following items available during the ceremony:
- Buddha statue that can get wet and a container that it can fit inside to hold the water. We will make an offering of bathing the baby Buddha. If you don’t have a Buddha statue, you can use three stacked stones as a Buddha image if you like, or even a flower.
- A cup with water or tea and a ladle or spoon for bathing the baby Buddha
- A flower--real, silk, imaginal, or in the form of incense--to make as an offering.
- A treat of your choice to make as an offering and then enjoy during socializing after the ceremony
We look forward to celebrating together!
