Peace Day / Autumn Equinox

September 21st a small group gathered at Shao Shan Temple to celebrate the fall equinox and International Peace Day.

We chanted around the Peace Pole garden, decorated with origami cranes for the occasion.

And we joined together in the ancient Ryakufusatsu ceremony - a purification ceremony at this time of the changing seasons.

May our intention and our practice contribute to spreading peace 
over the entire planet.
