During May, Tzu Chi volunteers will come together to celebrate the 3-in-1 occasion of Buddha Day, Mother’s Day and Tzu Chi Day. The event allows us to express our gratitude to the Buddha, our parents and all living beings, and to gather our kind thoughts and prayers for world peace.
“Bathing the Buddha” signifies the purification of our hearts. The Buddha-bathing ceremony depicts the beauty of the Buddhist faith and culture and inspires kindness within us as we take the Dharma to heart. As we pay respect to all the Buddhas with a sincere and pious heart and cleanse our hearts and minds from impurities with the help of the Dharma, we can return to our pure, innate nature like that of the Buddha.
We warmly welcome you and your family to celebrate this occasion with us.
