Buddha’s Enlightenment Day is coming up on April 15th. So how do Buddhists celebrate the holiday, you may be wondering?
On Sunday and Monday, we being each day at 6:30am with the practice of taking the Eight Mahayana Precepts. Then we engage in three sessions of chanted prayers with prostrations to the compassion Buddha, 1000-armed Avalokiteshvara. This retreat includes prostrations and fasting.
If you’re in north Texas and want to join us, this open to anyone, but the 6:30am precepts are required.
