Sangha Day

November 16 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Event Date/Time: Nov 16, 10 – 5


Regional Sangha Day Celebration & Community Theater Storytelling

Sangha Day is an annual festival of Buddhist spiritual community, celebrated around the world.
Our morning will be dedicated to reflective meditation and a puja on the theme of friendship – from our present day connections back to the time of the Buddha. Friendship is a vital condition in the spiritual life, one might even say it is the whole of the spiritual life.

In the afternoon we will invoke our collective spirit to bring community theater into being. We will have a selection of stories from the Buddhist tradition ready to be shared with our contemporary interpretations. Props and scripts provided. If you’d like to help out with any of the pre-production work please be in touch by mid-October.

Program:
10-12 pm meditation and puja
12-1 pm vegetarian potluck lunch (please bring a dish to share)
1-3 pm community theater preparations and shenanigans
3:30-5 pm sharing our stories

* At Aryaloka, we strive to make our programs available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Our fee structure allows you to pay according to your means. The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryaloka’s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.
