Ceremony of Aid, Thursday, November 15

We hold this ceremony each year on the Thursday before Thanksgiving, as a way of sending spiritual and material aid to those suffering from hunger throughout the world. During the ceremony, there will be an opportunity to make a monetary donation to Oxfam, and the Center will match our donations. Residents here at the Center will fast that day so that they can experience in a very small but visceral way the hunger that millions of people around the world live with. Other Sangha members attending the ceremony may find that joining with the fast helps make the ceremony more meaningful.
