Buddha Bless Temple | Parents' Appreciation Day and Sand Mandala Viewing

7748 3rd Street Rd, Louisville, KY 40214
September 3, 2023, 10:00 a.m.

Besides our biological parents and relatives, the Buddha reminds us that we should consider all men as our brothers and/or fathers and all women as our sisters and/or mothers. As a result, we would like to invite you and your family to join this Parents' Appreciation Celebration starting from 10:00 a.m. on September 3 at our temple to commemorate and appreciate the loving-kindness and compassion of our grandparents, parents, and relatives, as well as people from all walks of life that love, support, and care for us in every moment of life. We will have children performance and refreshment afterward.

We also would like to invite you to visit our center to observe and pray for the creation of sand Mandala of Medicine Master Buddha, an artistic tradition of Tantric Buddhism, painting with colored sand, ranks as one of the most unique and exquisite, for our health, well-beings, and world peace, by Tibetan monks during the above-mentioned periods, times, and dates.

We look forward to seeing you and your family at this special celebration and the artistic creation of Sand Mandala soon.
