Nichiren Shu Buddhist Temple of UK
We arranged our Hanamatsuri Shrine containing the statue of the Baby Buddha. The Buddha was born over 2500 years ago in a beautiful flower garden. According to legend, at that moment sweet tea rained down from the heavens - during the ceremony we pour sweet tea over the Baby Buddha statue.
Below: We offered meals for the Buddha and Nichiren Shonin.
We had a wonderful ceremony on Sunday to celebrate the Buddha's birth. We held the Flower Festival one month later than it is traditionally held to suit our lovely English weather! Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate with us!
