A Day of Rest and Meditation
In Gratitude to Our Teacher on his 94th Birthday
online with Sugarplum Sangha
Oct 11, 2020
9am - 4pm
Our dear teacher is about to start his 94th continuation in a few days. As a dedicated peace builder and teacher for many decades, Thay has inspired and touched the heart of millions of practitioners around the world. Thay shared a story when he was young and mischievously sent a letter to an astrologer and to his surprise, the astrologer wrote him back with a strange prediction without knowing that Thay was a monk. It was said that Thay's merits and blessings would reach the five continents and his legacy would live on for at least 30 years after his passing. Thay joked that 30 years were too little :) but however long would depend on his students to continue the practice. 

So let us start this Sunday with a dedication of our practice to Thay. The Sugarplum Sangha invites you for a day of rest, joy, and celebration of Thay with intimate, heart-warming stories from dharma teachers and Thay's long-time attendants and practices that he has lovingly transmitted to us. 

The day will include walking meditation, sitting meditation, dharma talk, mindful lunch, deep relaxation and dharma sharing. We hope you will take the time to join the community to nourish the peaceful energy as an offering to Thay and ourselves.

Let us settle down, calm our senses and bring clarity and space for deep looking and renewal in a time of much agitations and depletions. Take time for meditation, guided movements, songs, dharma offerings from Brother Phap Luu and community sharing within the safe container of the Sugarplum Sangha. Come home to the cooling and refreshing elements in you and around you.
