The day will start at 9:30 am with meditations, both led and unled as is usual for Saturdays @ the SBC. After a tea-break, at 11 am, we will have a large celebratory puja (devotional practice). Please bring along any offerings you’d like to offer teh shrine. Children will be welcome to come along participate to the extent they’d like to.
