INVITATION

Mano Great Filial MahaMaudgalyayana Bodhisattva

Dear Friends and Sangha,

Autumn, the season filled with falling yellow leaves

‘Tis the season of welcoming Ullumbana,

Yearning for the ones who gave this gift of life,

My heart sobbed, filling with sorrow.

Every year when Ullumbana day arrives, in the mind of the Vietnamese, who live afar, always long for their motherland and go back to their roots. They remember their ancestors and parents who had given birth and raised them. With the deepest of gratitude towards our parents, the Sangha at An Lac Temple are devoted to celebrate Ullumbana Day PL. 2562 on:

Saturday – Sunday
August 18 – 19, 2018

We would like to invite you to join us for the Dharma lecture, recitation of Buddha’s teaching, and dedicate our prayers to those ancestors that are deceased. Praying for our parents who are still with us to be blessed with a life of good health and longevity. Together, we will pray for peace around the world and to all human beings.

Sincerely,

TKN. Nguyên Thiện
