Dear friends, After the first Wake Up Day of Mindfulness at Luk Wu, we’ve learnt the four elements of True Love: Loving kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity. Do we feel that we are capable of loving ourselves and others with understanding? Do we understand our deepest desire, our needs for happiness as well as the root of suffering in ourselves? Do we truly understand our loved ones? Here is another episode of learning the art of cultivating the mind of love. Grasp this chance to grow our understanding and our love for ourselves and our loved ones.

Sunday Day of Mindfulness & Rose Ceremony (2021 Autumn)

  •  2021-08-22 09:30 - 15:30
  •  Lotus Pond Temple, Lantau
  •  free

Dear Friends, Monastics of Asian Institute of Applied Buddhism, Plum Village Hong Kong, are happy to invite you to Sunday Day of Mindfulness and Rose Festival on coming Sunday, August 22, 2021. About the Rose Ceremony In the West we have Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to celebrate the presence of our parents in our lives. The Rose Ceremony is a tradition that Thầy began after a visit to Japan. While in Tokyo some Japanese students pinned a carnation on Thầy’s robe. On Mother’s day, it is their custom to wear a red flower on the lapel when your mother is still alive, and a white one if she is no longer alive. In Vietnam (and other Asian countries) there is a tradition to celebrate the Ullambana Ceremony, which is an occasion to commemorate Venerable Maudgalyayana for his expression of filial love – rescuing his Mother from the Hell realm. Every year, as part of the Plum Village tradition we celebrate both the Ullambana and the Rose Ceremony together. It is an opportunity to pay respect and offer gratitude to our parents for their love and care throughout our lives. This is special as it is a time when you can reflect on and appreciate the good seeds that your parents have passed on to you, whether they are still alive or have already passed away. Schedule Time Activity 09:30 Orientation for New Friends 10:00 Walking meditation 10:45 Dharma Talk 11:30 Rose Festival, including– Sitting Meditation– Incense Offering– Touching the Earth– Opening Verse– Chanting– Musical Offering– Introductory Words– Reading of a Rose for Your Pocket– Love Letter to Parents– Pinning the Roses– Sharing the Merit 13:15 Lunch (see footnote 1) 14:30 Dharma sharing 15:30 End of DOM Registration window will be opened from August 18 22:00 till August 20 22:00.
