New Year's Day Meditation

Tuesday 10am – 12pm, Jan/01/2019

Start your 2019 with meditation!

It is open to all who want to begin the New Year with compassion and equanimity. The temple door will be open from 9:30 am – 12:00 pm on New Year’s Day.

“The newness of the New Year is not in the day but in our mind. Hence, the true meaning of greeting the New Year lies in exerting ourselves with a fresh new mind in our practice and public service. If therefore we take care of our new mind, then every day is a new day and a New year.”   – Master Chongsan
