Written by on . Posted in Featured Events

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!
