On New Year’s Eve the Spokane Buddhist Temple will host a “last night gathering” to start the new year.
According to the temple, the service, called a Joya-E Service, symbolically “rings out the 108 delusions of women and men and rings in aspirations to overcome ignorance, greed and anger in the coming year.” It’s a way to reflect on the events of 2016 and ” move away from our selfish and egocentered ways.”
All in attendance will have the opportunity to ring the Kansho bell.
The service will be followed by a reception at the temple.
The service will be at 7 p.m. at the temple, 927 S Perry St.
