For our annual New Year Healing and Blessings Chanting Ceremony for 2017, we have invited monks and nuns from around the country to chant and offer these blessings. We hope 12 monastics will join us, and your support makes it possible for them to come, helping them with travel expenses.
For this evening, we want to offer each monk and nun $100 as a gift, and we are asking you to donate what you can towards these offerings. You can donate the entire amount or a portion of one gift. It should be as large or as small as you feel you are able to contribute; any gift is honored and appreciated. It is your intention of generosity that is important, not the amount.
Offering the gifts is a beautiful part of the evening. You will experience how directly the energy flows between the giver and receiver, reminding us that one cannot exist without the other, and that loving energy always flows both ways in this exchange between the ordained sangha and the lay sangha. You can make your donations at the temple, on the website/Facebook, or here on Eventbrite.
May you be well, happy and peaceful.
