January 13, 2018 “Lazy Day” Retreat

The first “Lazy Day” retreat of 2018 was held at the temple on Saturday, January 13.  The cold day did not dampen the spirits of 65 people who were in the Buddha Hall for the 9:15 AM guided meditation and Dharma talk by Ven. Thich Chuc Thanh.  Ven. Bhante Vivek presented the second meditation and dharma talk at 10:40 AM.  For most of the people in attendance, it was their first experience with a beautifully chanted Metta Meditation.
