The New Year's Eve Ceremony at Shao Shan Temple on December 31, 2017
was a celebration of sitting, chanting, fire and cold.
The quintessential essence of our best intentions was reflected in the natural environment with the crystal purity of the cold air, the rising of the full moon in the snow covered pines, and the blazing fire in the circle of snow. This natural beauty combined with sincere reflection, warm fellowship, hearty chanting and delicious food.
Warm wishes to all in the New Year!
