Buddha's Birthday Meditation, Ritual and Dharma Talk

Sunday, May 19, 2019 - 10:00 am to 1:00 pm

We remember and celebrate the key moments in the Buddha's life, as they provide an access to different levels of appreciating the spiritual path and our own Awakening. 

On one level, the Buddha is a great teacher, who opened the spiritual path for those living in this era - providing clear teachings and a path for recognizing the nature of suffering and relief from suffering, through meditation, contemplation and skillful action.

On another level, the Buddha's life is the archetypal story of all of us on the spiritual path. We are asked to bring the story of the Buddha's birth into our own narrative. What if we chose to be born in the circumstances and situations we were born into? Can we view the story of our lives as one of always being on the path of practice?

How is it that we are born anew in every moment? The Buddha's birth is a symbol of our innate purity, the nature of the heart, whole, perfect and complete.

Join us for this beautiful ritual of bathing the baby beauty. A ceremony of loving kindness, respect and renewal.
