Shakyamuni Buddha Birthday Cultivation

Tuesday, May 6th 

Ceremony 10:00 am - 12:30 pm 

Animal Release 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm 


Over 2550 years ago, the child who would become the historical Buddha first set foot on this earth.  Join us as we celebrate his birth with a day of offering the traditional Bathing Buddha Ceremony and Animal Liberation Ceremony saving lives. Come and spend a beautiful day in retreat, turning your mind towards the compassion and wisdom of Shakyamuni Buddha. 

In the morning session, we will hold a special Bathing Buddha ceremony and offering prayers. Bathing the Buddha is a traditional ceremony performed in many areas of the world on the occasion of Buddha's Birthday.  When we bathe the Buddha we are actually purifying our own defilement s and generating merit and virtue. 

"One who uses pure beautifully scented water to pour onto the body of this image, offers it various flavorful drinks and foods, fully maintaining it with oblations, eulogizes the virtue of the Tathagata which is endlessly difficult to conceive. Through the wisdom of skillful means and the supernatural power of the Buddha, such a one will quickly reach the other shore of Nirvana." 

...Sutra on the Merit of Bathing the Buddha

In the afternoon we will have an Animal Release or Liberation Ceremony. This is a very powerful and auspicious day for creating good imprints in your mind with the positive potential of any actions performed on this day being multiplied many hundreds of thousands of times. "In terms of creating good karma, Buddhism teaches that nothing surpasses saving the life of a being facing imminent death". 

Everyone is welcome including families.  

Bringing small critters such as crickets or earthworms is encouraged. If you would like to donate we are accepting small contributions towards a group Cricket purchase.
