meditation-big-bell_300px_squareIf you’re looking for a different way to celebrate the new year on the last night of December, we hope you’ll consider ringing in 2018 at Aryaloka Buddhist Center. We will be hosting a special New Year’s Eve bell-ringing event in our shrine room starring our beautiful big gong which is brought out on special occasions.

All are most welcome to join us in the lounge at 11:15 p.m. on December 31 for tea and conversation. Then we’ll go upstairs to the shrine room and meditate until midnight. As the clock strikes midnight, the big gong will be rung 108 times to welcome in the new year.

After the last echo dies away, you are welcome to stay on for refreshments. May 2018 bring peace and joy to all beings!

The Generosity Kula invites everyone – each time time they come to Aryaloka – to bring one item for our collection boxes in the entryway. We are collecting non-perishable food items, personal care/cleaning products, or warm clothing items. Your generosity makes such a difference in many people’s lives! We thank you for your past donations and encourage you to continue. With gratitude, the Generosity Kula.
