Monthly Shotsuki and Hanamatsuri Service

April 7 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

The first Sunday of every month, we recognize and remember those loved ones who passed away that month. We will also be celebrating Hanamatsuri which is commemorating the birth of Siddhartha Gautama. Siddhartha became enlightened as Shakyamuni Buddha – the Enlightened One, the Buddha..

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 hope you will join us – Everyone is welcome!

Lunch to follow.
