TET - the Lunar New Year


Welcoming in the Vietnamese (Lunar) New Year or "Tết” is an important and joyful time at the monastery---the most important festival in Vietnamese culture.  We will focus on informal teachings based on traditional Vietnamese poetic "oracle reading."

Please note that our formal practices of sitting meditation, walking meditation and silent meals are suspended, and replaced with informal practice. Therefore Tết” is appropriate only for those already familiar with Plum Village practice.
