A special family event will be held at Annandale on Sunday, April 8 to celebrate the Buddha’s birthday and the naming of new babes in the sangha.
If you’d like to include your child in this welcome, let Gillian Coote know.
Our special family event will take place in a flower-filled child-friendly dojo and begin at ll am but bring your children or grandchildren (or nieces and nephews) earlier, from 10.30 am, so they can meet each other while making gifts and paintings to give the Baby Buddha.
The Birthday Ceremony will begin with the children placing their gifts on a special low altar in the dojo, bathing our Baby Buddha statue in water and offering him flowers.
Around noon we’ll share lunch together – bring something delicious and, if you have any to spare, some flowers to place on the low altar.
