Dear Dharma Drink Friends!

Join us for a fun and educational excursion to Flushing; we will be visiting a Korean Buddhist Temple, Hanmaum Zen (Seon) Center to participate in their Buddha's Birthday Celebration Ceremony.

I visited the Korean temple over 9 years ago when it was still under construction. The monastic explained to me that all the material were shipped directly from Korea, yeah and it looks like it's right out of Korea!

I will arrive at Tous Les Jours by 9:45am and we will head out together around 10:15am. We will either stroll (or take the Q16 bus from Tour Les Jours (39th & Union St) to Bayside Avenue) and arrive before 10:30am.

10:30am Celebration Ceremony
12:00pm Veggie Lunch
12:40pm Celebration Continues
4:00pm Lotus Lantern Lighting Ceremony

NOTE for Hanmaun Zen Center:
- Please wear appropriate un-revealing clothing (traditional temple).
- Must wear socks or you may not enter the main hall.
- No photos allowed in the main hall.
- Donations are welcome!

Look forward to this event!
