Hanamatsuri Service (Buddha’s Birthday)

Sunday, April 28, @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Free

Hanamatsuri, literally flower festival, commemorates the birth of Siddhartha Gautama, who became enlightened and is known as Buddha. A special altar—the Hanamido—is erected and decorated with flowers representing the garden in Lumbini, southern Nepal, where it is said that Queen Maya went into labor. A statue of the infant Buddha is placed in a pan and, in a ritual known as kanbutsu, water or sweet tea is poured over it in remembrance of the “sweet rain” that descended from heaven at the moment of the birth.
