(We've changed the date from Sunday.)

This morning program will be before our regular monthly 4-hour meditation sessions starting at Noon.

Join us to honor the Buddha by observing Esala Poya (July full moon) with traditional activities: listen to a Dhamma talk, take Refuge & 5 Precepts, chant recollection of the Buddha, and enjoy a potluck brunch together. And most importantly, extend the annual formal "Invitation" to our monk to stay on with us here at Charlotte Buddhist Vihara, pledging to maintain the basic requisites of shelter, food, clothing & medicine.

10:00 am Dhamma talk
10:30 am Invitation; Refuge & precepts, chanting
11:00 Dana and potluck brunch
12:00 pm End Poya program; Begin regular 4 hour meditation session (stay and combine the two programs if you'd like a full day of spiritual immersion.)
