Event description

Description

Join us in a special event dedicated to honoring the Buddha. Altars and tables containing the Kanjur, the Tibetan Buddhist canon of texts containing the words of the Buddha, festooned with colorful fabric will greet visitors, as sacred melodies gently sound, rose petals are tossed, and incense wafts through the air.

As part of the celebration, we will carry the Kanjur texts and butter lamp offerings around the Institute and through the sacred meditation garden while chanting the Shakyamuni mantra to evoke the blessings of the Buddha.

We would like to have 108 participants, so that together we can carry the many volumes of the Kanjur. Please RSVP here (click on the green "Register" button on this page) to be one of the 108!
