Happy Lunar New Year on Feb 8! Over thirty Atlanta-area Buddhist temples will have celebrations, one of the biggest events of the year other than Buddha's Birthday (Vesak, which is on lunar 4/8, this year May 21). We will offer two separate field trips on next Sunday February 7 to local Buddhist temples if anyone wishes to pray for a peaceful and auspicious new year and join the festivities. One is a Chinese Buddhist ceremony at Dharma Jewel Monastery, which will have English translation, followed by a free vegetarian lunch. In the evening, is a Vietnamese celebration at Kim Cang Monastery, with lots of food available for purchase. Never been before? Don't worry, everyone is welcome to either or both. Want to go or need a ride? Let us know!
