Every New Moon (or in the closest regularly scheduled meditation)
Every month on the Sunday, Tuesday or Wednesday closest to the new moon we have a Well Being Ceremony. The ceremony takes place after the regularly scheduled silent or guided meditation for the day.
We chant the Enmei Jukku Kannon Gyo seven times. This chant is an invocation of the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, the Bodhisattva of compassion and we chant it with the aspiration that our loved ones will recover from their illnesses, whether they be physical, mental or emotional.
After the chant we offer a dedication which includes reciting the names of our loved ones who are ill. If you would like to add a name to the list for our next ceremony, please send it to email@example.com.
Thank you very much.
