There will be a live stream of Abhayagiri’s Āsāḷhā Pūjā ceremony.
Pūjā begins at 7pm PDT with chanting and meditation, followed by the opportunity to take the 3 refuges and 8 precepts (p. 131 of chanting book Vol 1. Link below) and a Dhamma talk. After the Dhamma talk we will hold our Āsāḷhā Pūjā ceremony and circumambulation.
Āsāḷha Pūjā commemorates the Buddha’s first discourse, given to the five samanas in the Deer Park at Sarnath, near Varanasi. The traditional Rainy-Season Retreat (Vassa) begins on the next day.
