Sunday 17th December
10.00am to 4.00pm Bring vegetarian/vegan food to share
A day of practice and celebration centering around the unveiling and dedication of our new shrine and Buddha figure.
Some of you may have noticed that a mysterious construction has begun to appear above the curtain that acts as a backdrop to our shrine.
Earlier this year we commissioned Amritasukha to create a new Buddha Rupa for us, which has also involved the creation of a new and beautiful shrine. Although a small number of us have been involved in the project so far we would really love to have a sense that the whole community is part of this dedication and unveiling. So we are extending a warm invitation to all the sangha and friends to come to the unveiling and dedication ceremony on Sunday 17th December.
The morning from 10am – There will be a ritual and communal dissolving of the old shrine, followed by an opportunity to create offerings and well wishing to the world which will be sealed into the new shrine in the afternoon.
Shared lunch – please bring vegetarian/vegan food to share.
The afternoon – will consist in the community revealing and dedicating the new shrine. At which point our offerings and well wishing will be sealed in place.
