If you want to go to a great party this weekend check out Buddha's birthday celebration at the Ann Arbor Buddhist templpm. It is a wonderful way to get to know our Buddhist community and celebrate.
The Vegetarian Buffet Extraordinaire, o, pm will be prepared by a very experienced crew in the kitchen at the top of their game. The entertainment includes a talented Jazz ensemble who have played the past two years, as well as some lively Buddhist songs performed by the new temple choir.
Religious Services o bring a different tone to the celebration. At the th9:30am morning service meditation is followed by special rituals for the Buddha's Birthday, including the precious ritual of bathing the baby Buddha. In the evening at 7:30pm we dedicate beautiful lanterns which have been hung in the Sangha Hall. At 3pm is a poignant, nutshell lesson on beginning a meditation practice.So come and celebrate Buddha's birthday- he is the easiest person to shop for because he only wants peace and enlightenment.
See you there
