Buddha's Birthday! - May 9th

A wonderful spring Buddha's Birthday was celebrated at Shao Shan Temple this past Saturday.  This year's celebration was especially festive and well-attended.  Over 60 people enjoyed a procession through the woods with bells & drums & parasols & bubbles; a delightfully told story of Buddha's birth; poems;  sweet tea offerings; and meditation.  The celebration was concluded with refreshments and accompanied by live music.  
Thanks to all who participated and to all who assisted in making it possible!
