Silent Autumn Night Retreat – March 2019

Dear all friends

Autumn is the season when all things are harvested.

It follows the seasons of spring and summer when hard work is put into preparing and sowing the fields for harvesting in autumn.

Therefore, as reaping of the fruits occur in autumn, it is quite rewarding.

Consequently, autumn is also a time of silent reflection and perspective.

You are invited to a cool autumn evening in March to “reap the fruits” – to relax and de-stress through the silent practice of meditation, yoga (Bronwyn), qigong, chanting with candlelight, and connecting with nature.

Accordingly, you will acquire strength, peace, tranquility, and enlightenment.

What could be more rewarding than that ?

We hope that you can join us.

New Year Celebration – 104 (2019)

New Year Celebration – 104 (2019)

Dear all Dharma friends

We hope that you are all enjoying the holiday season.

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

“The newness of the New Year is not in the day but in our mind. Hence, the true meaning of greeting the New Year lies in exerting ourselves with a fresh new mind in our practice and service. If therefore we take care of our mind, then every day is a new day and a New Year’s Day. If we fail to take care of our new mind, we will not truly greet the New Year although a New Year has arrived.” — Ven. Chong San

The following will be the program of the day :

  • Opening words by Rev. HeaJin
  • Meditation and prayer
  • Music by Woodie Meclean
  • Message from Head Dharma Master Ven. Jeonsan by Won Do Kwang
  • Dharma talk by Rev. InMyung
  • Temple’s 2018 video and photo presentation
