Sunday Practice w/ Buddha's Birthday Ceremony

Nickerson St.  Zendo

4/7/2019 9:30 AM  -  11:30 AM  at  Nickerson St. Zendo (101 Nickerson Street, Suite 130, Seattle, WA, 98109) (Map It)

Today we celebrate Buddha's birthday and the coming of spring with a joyful ceremony. A figure of the baby Buddha is placed in a flower-bedecked pagoda on a special altar. Each person comes to the altar and bathes the baby buddha with sweet tea. We encourage you to come at 8:30 to help decorate the pagoda. Bring a few flowers if you can. 

We will have our regular two sittings, a short dharma story and then the ceremony. The dharma story, beginning at 10:30, and ceremony are meant to be for young and old alike. You are most welcome to bring the children in your life and join us at this later time. Tea and cookies will follow as usual. If you can bring a treat to share that would be great too.

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. We supply cushions, kneeling benches and chairs. Please be at your seat by 9:25 a.m. There is no charge for sittings. We welcome your donation.
