Each month at the full moon, the community gathers to renew our Bodhisattva vows. All are welcome. This is a formal ceremony including chanting and full bows. If it is your first full moon ceremony or you are unfamiliar with the forms, please follow others in offering incense or flower petals before entering the Buddha Hall and be sure to take a chant card. For more information, contact the office at 415.863.3136.
