The Full Moon Ceremony is a ritual reported to have been practiced regularly since the time of Shakyamuni Buddha. In this ceremony we come together as a sangha to give voice to our aspirations, renew our agreements to live in harmony together, and offer gratitude to our teachers. This beautiful, ancient ceremony deeply touches the minds, bodies and hearts of the participants.
The Full Moon Ceremony will start at 7:45 pm, after evening zazen at 6:50 pm and a short period of temple cleaning. The ceremony will last about 30 minutes, and a discussion of the precepts will follow. The ceremony is part of the Wednesday evening program.
No registration required. All are welcome!
