The monks and their retinue of eight lay folks (six from Thailand and two from Abhayagiri) will be traveling out to the Hermitage* directly following the meal offering.
Saturday morning Luang Por Pasanno will lead a short blessing ceremony for the yet-to-arrive Buddha Rupa, a gift to our community from him, sponsored by one of his devout Thai lay disciples. Keep in mind there is no giving without receiving, no giver without receivers – everyone is welcome, kids are strongly encouraged.
*Simultaneous to Saturday morning at PFoD, the Pacific Hermitage will be hosting “The Inter-dependence Garden Party“, with a focus on tidying-up the gardens, and preparing tent sites for the many monks they will be hosting. Click here for an example of the schedule.
