Annual Laba Festival Celebration

The Laba Festival is a major Buddhist holiday celebrated on the lunar calendar’s December eighth to commemorate the enlightenment of the Buddha.
According to the life story of the Buddha, one of the most important and most well-known dishes the Buddha ate was the milk congee offered to him by Sujata just before his enlightenment.  Every year, Mahayana Temple would make complimentary Laba Congee offering to the general public, aiming to bring good luck, happiness and heath to everyone.
Laba Congee will be offered around 11am-1pm after morning chanting. Come join in us to receive blessing walking into a new year! No registration needed.
