Description

Friday, 6:30 am

Shakyamuni Buddha made a vow that he would continue to sit in meditation until he either died or found the truth. On the morning of the seventh day of his meditation, he experienced enlightenment. This ceremony commemorates that moment. It includes chanting accompanied by a drum during a circumambulation of the Buddha Hall.
