This Saturday we’ll gather to celebrate Sangha Day and Buddha’s Birthday!

All BZC members are invited, and families are strongly encouraged to attend with little ones and children. We will have a day celebrating Sangha with zazen and childcare inside and a joyful, simple ceremony of Buddha’s birthday, and picnicking together outside in the courtyard (weather permitting).

Childcare will be provided from 9:15 to 11am EST.
