Sri Lankan New Year Celebration & Blessing service


Event Details

This event finished on 16 April 2017


Participation and potluck food list sign up Spring has arrived. One of many beautiful things spring brings us is the Sri Lankan New Year day. When the sun (earth) moves from the Zodiac of Pisces to the Zodiac of Aries in its journey across the twelve segments of the sky, we move into a new cycle of the sun. This is a time to strengthen our relationships with one another and develop positive thoughts to refresh our journey of life. We do this by asking forgiveness from each other and sharing food and loving kindness.
