Spring Equinox Celebration Sunday with Lama Geshe Thubten Soepa

March 22 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Spring has arrived…Celebrate the Vernal Equinox with community in the lush Sanctuary of Lotus Bend!

It has been a long winter, join us to rejoice in the return of the light and new cycle of growth! This will be a day to relax, connect, share food, enjoy live music, and be guided in a very special ritual in honor of the sacred creatures of our planet, with Lama Geshe Thubten Soepa.

Animal Liberation Ritual 2:00 pm:
This is an incredible opportunity to practice the virtue of saving lives. Participation is optional, but if you feel called to participate, you may visit a pet store and purchase animals that would otherwise be killed and set them free. (Worms, fish, crickets that would otherwise be used as bait are great candidates.) This is a profound practice recommended by Geshe Soepa to bring about good causes in your life and in the world.

All are welcome especially the kiddos!
There is no charge for this event, but donations appreciated.
