On Sunday, September 13, the Buddha Eye sangha and neighborhood will gather to celebrate the opening  of the temple's new hall and garden. Enjoy:

  • Traditional Buddhist drumming and sutra chanting for good fortune
  • A delicious lunch
  • Gamelan Sari Pandhawa (A Eugene ensemble that plays traditional Javanese music)
  • Neighborhood fellowship and community building

Please help celebrate the opening of the new hall at Buddha Eye Temple.  The past several years have been spent planning and working on this new hall so that the temple can be a fuller resource for the community.  We are happy to announce the official opening of the hall and hope you are able to join in the celebration Sunday, September 13th from12 noon.  In addition to the opening ceremony, the temple will serve lunch for all who attend. Gamelan Sari Pandhawa, a local Javanese music ensemble played on bronze percussion instruments, will perform throughout the afternoon.  This is a good chance to meet neighbors and get introduced to the new temple building and grounds.  Everyone is welcome!  Please bring family and friends and help make this a real community event.

The schedule for the day will be as follows:

9:00 - 10:00: Zazen and service, as usual
10:00 - 12:00: Preparation for the ceremony
12:00: Ceremony
1:00 :  Lunch and Gamelan Sari Pandhawa concert
           in the garden

A special feature of this day, will be a birthday cake in celebration of Jun-e, Carmelita's, 80th birthday (no personal gifts, please!) Dana to the temple will be gratefully accepted.

We hope sangha, families, children, and neighbors will join us to enjoy the last days of summer in our beautiful new space!
