Over 3,000 years ago, the great compassionate Buddha came to this world to awaken our Buddha nature. To commemorate the Buddha’s Birthday, Chung Tai Zen Center of Sunnyvale will be conducting a "Bathing the Buddha" Ceremony from 9:00AM to 3:00PM on May 16 (Sunday). By bathing the Buddha, we are purifying our own minds; learning from the Buddha, we are creating a Rare Land. May all of us realize our inherent purity and infinite Potential.
We invite you, your family and friends to join us in this memorable event and dedicate the merits towards world peace.
