Vesak weekend


Join us as we celebrate the Buddha's Continuation Day on May 19, 2019.

Siddhartha, or Buddha Shakyamuni, was an enlightened being whose teachings have helped millions of people touch the peace, love and understanding inherent in each of us.  In celebration and  remembrance of the Buddha, we will practice mindfulness together as a sangha, or community, seeing that the Buddha is still very much alive, here and now.

You are welcome to join us for the weekend, arriving Friday afternoon, May 17 in time for our 6 pm dinner and 7:30 pm orientation.  This weekend is offered to our guests on a donation basis.  Everyone is welcome to join us for the Day of Mindfulness on Sunday, May 19th. There is no need to register for the day visit. If you wish to stay overnight, please register.

Everyone is welcome to come on Sunday, just for the day. Or for the ordination on Saturday. There are no overnight accommodations available at the monastery. Please check the schedule posted on our website page, Schedule of Events, before coming.
