Hanamatsuri – Sunday, April 7

According to our tradition, the historical Buddha, Sakyamuni, was born in Lumbini Garden in Nepal on April 8, 566 B.C. He was born the son of King Suddohana and Queen Maya. There are many flowery descriptions of the scene at his birth, including celestial birds singing beautiful songs, beautiful flowers, and a sweet gentle rain bathing the baby Buddha.  We will recognize Hanamatsuri on Sunday, April 7 along with our monthly Shotsuki/memorial service for those who passed in the month of April.  Everyone is welcome.

There will be a meal after service in celebration of Buddha’s birth and the Hanamatsuri toban group would like to invite you to contribute by volunteering to bring something – please visit SIGNUP.
