Atavisi Buddha Puja - Saturday, December 15th, 2018 @ 6:00 p.m.

Saturday, December 15, 2018

In celebration of Sanghamitta Day, which occurs  on the Unduwap Full Moon day, we are pleased to inform the up-coming Atavisi Buddha Puja which will be held on Saturday, December 15th, 2018 at the temple premises. The Puja will commence at 6:00 p.m.

This is also an opportunity for 28 families to sponsor a Buddha Statue for a special course. We will take this opportunity to invoke blessings of the Noble Triple Gems on everyone in our community and to transfer merits to our departed loved ones as well.

As done in the past, a beautifully prepared tray of flowers will be offered to each Buddha in the name of the sponsored family and the purpose of offer will be displayed along with the Buddha statue. A donation of $50/- or more is expected from each of these 28 families.

Any family who wishes to sponsor a Buddha statue, please send an e-mail to bvs_bc@yahoo.ca as soon as possible. 28 families will be selected on first come first served basis. You can also pay the donation through our secured Pay-pal system if you wish to use that facility.

In the spirit of recognizing the great contributions of female disciples to Buddhism, Sanghamitta Day should be considered one of the major religious event to be observed and therefore, we are glad that it could be done combining with the proposed Atavisi Buddha Puja on December 15th, 2018.
