11 February Parinirvana ceremony & speaker Daiko Tanzen, David Bullock

…the Tathagata has completely extinguished the fire of the mental afflictions that have been accumulated over countless aeons, the nature of the diamond Tathagata permanently endures – not transforming and not diminishing.*

This coming Saturday, we’ll have a brief ceremony commemorating the entry into Nirvana of Shakyamuni Buddha, following a short Dharma talk at the usual time of 10:15 a.m. this week the talk is offered by resident priest Daiko Tanzen, David Bullock.

Everyone is welcome & invited to attend.
