New Year Celebration – 105 (2020)

New Year Celebration – 105 (2020)

“The highest wisdom is to know the roots and branches of the mind.”

Dear all Dharma friends

We hope that you are all enjoying the holiday season.

“In all things, you must take care of the fundamentals, so that ancillary matters can proceed smoothly. The root of the six sense organs is the mind and the basis of the mind is the nature. What is fundamental to living in this world is trustworthiness ; power and privilege, reputation, and personal gain are all ancillary.” – Ven. Chong San

Let’s celebrate the New Year with a clear and refreshed mind.

The following will be the program of the day :

  • Opening words by Rev. Heajin
  • Chanting and meditation
  • Message from Head Dharma Master Ven. Jeonsan by Chang Chun Myung
  • Dharma talk by Rev. InMyung
  • Temple’s 2019 video and photo presentation
  • Consistent Practice Awards – Ryan Handbury
  • A song performed by Mr Sang-Dae Hahn
  • New Year resolutions by June Clay
  • Healing exercise and closing
  • Today’s lunch offering was kindly donated by Chang Chun Myung (Richard Chang)

Everybody is welcome. We hope that you can join us.
