A Celebration of Buddha’s Birthday

On Saturday, April 6th, we came together to celebrate spring and the ongoing cycle of becoming. The children decorated the garden with flowers, balloons and streamers and made a pagoda for the baby Buddha statue to stand while we bathed him with sweet tea. We joined in song together and then sang Happy Birthday to everything!

A joyous celebration for everyone.
