On this full moon day we will honor a vast mandala of local deities and protectors with a traditional morning fire ceremony (Sang) to bring renewed balance and energy to the world.
The Maitreya Shrine Room will be open to the public for this event.
You may also view this practice remotely. For information on how to join us via ZOOM, please click here.
