Community Meal Offering and Celebration

Three times a year, the community commemorates the primary Buddhist holy days at the Pacific Hermitage. Vesakha Puja (Buddha Day) will be marked on May 27 in the traditional way: Gathering at the monastery, offering a meal, taking the five precepts together, chanting, and talking on Dhamma with the monastics in residence. 

All are welcome and encouraged to attend, including families and kids! It should be a very enjoyable time with friends.

Please contact Jessica Swanson for more information, to RSVP, or to organize carpooling from the Portland area.
