Consecration of Buddha statue in the garden

1:00 pm Saturday, October 24, 2020

 

Come add your presence and your prayers to the consecration of the Buddha statue in our garden, Saturday, Oct. 24 at 1 pm. 

Our precious Geshe Gelek and Geshe Sangpo will offer prayers to bless the statue, now placed atop a beautiful new seat of honor.

Many volunteers worked in late September/early October to paint the throne and refurbish the statue so that the Buddha shines with brilliance and a peaceful, radiant face.

 

There will be an opportunity at the end of the ceremony to welcome Geshe Gelek home from Argentina and offer katas and/or other offerings to our Geshes and all our sangha - at a safe social distance! 

If registration fills up (we're limited to 50) and you would like to welcome Geshe-la, consider coming at about 2pm when people begin to disperse, and make your offering at that time.

Because of the pandemic, we will not have katas for students to borrow - however, our bookstore will have katas available for purchase, for $5 or $10, tax included. 

We will closely follow state guidance for safety at an outdoor event. 

Attendance is limited to 50, and we all must wear a face mask and maintain social distancing. 

Registration is required. Please register here.
