An Invitation to Join us

Sunday, June 28th, 2020 (9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.)

Celebrate our 20th Anniversary and Help us, Fundraiser, to Secure Our Future

Luang Por Pasanno will lead us with Precepts, meditation, and Dhamma reflections (spoken in English and Thai). There will be photos and recollections from our 20 -ear history and monastic video appearances from around the world.

On April 1st, 2000, Barbara Backstrand, Chris Robson, and Sakula established Portland Friends of the Dhamma with a 2.lb Buddha statue, in 700 sq. feet of space and a machine to play Dhamma tapes on. On June 28th, 2020, PFoD will celebrate its 7,939th day with a 900 lb. Buddha housed in 5,000 square feet and a computing machine to stream around the world. Everything changes.

Details to follow as they finalize. For now, SAVE THE DATE to join us in celebration and gratitude for what has been created, what we have maintained, and what we now hope to sustain.

This will be one for the books, you really don’t want to miss it!
