SAT, Dec 31 | 6:30 - 8pm
with Gen Kelsang Chokyi
Start the New Year in a way you intend to continue it—with a peaceful, positive mind and a loving heart. Relax as you are guided in the practice of Avalokiteshvara (the Buddha of Compassion), a beautiful arrangement of prayer and mantra recitation. Everyone will have an opportunity to light a candle while setting a positive intention for the new year. Together, we will dedicate our peaceful minds and positive energy to the welfare of all. During this event, we will celebrate with delicious vegetarian hors d’oeuvres, non-alcoholic refreshments in a blessed environment with others.
Everyone is welcome so bring your family and friends to enjoy this magical evening together! Led by Gen Kelsang Chokyi, Buddhist nun and Resident Teacher at KMC Bloomington.
