Festivals

Festivals are an important aspect of Buddhist tradition. These days are important for members of the Triratna Buddhist Community to gather for collective practice, to express devotion and gratitude for the three jewels (triratna) of Buddhism: the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha. Events are also held to commemorate the Buddha's final passing away (parinirvana) and to celebrate the great teacher Padmasambhava.

2014 has been a year of change at Aryaloka. New leaders, new classes, new organizational structures, and much growth of the sangha. Join us for a celebration of the Aryaloka sangha, all the people- past and present – who have helped develop the thriving Center and vibrant sangha we have today.

The evening will begin at 6 PM with a delicious dinner cooked by our current Chair of the Board, Arjava. This will be followed by a brief history of Aryaloka, as told by Surakshita, a long-time Order member and one of the founding members of the earliest leadership Council. After that we will move to the shrine room to honor the contributions of many individuals and mark the changes in leadership that have recently occurred. The evening will conclude with a thanking of Dayalocana, our out-going Council Chair, for her many years of kind leadership.

Please RSVP by by 11/18 registering here or contacting to the Aryaloka office at info@aryaloka.org or 603-659-5456  to let us know if you can join us.
