Wedding Blessing

The Sangha (monk) members who attended the wedding were doing the recitation of Jaya Mangala Sutta to bless the bridal couples. It was a significant and beautiful moment as the chant echoed through the shrine hall. The ambience of the temple was lovely. The presence of family members, spiritual friends (kalyana mitras) and members of the Buddhist community who came to participate in the wedding through choir presentation, audio technician and etc made this event a memorable one for all of us.

Hi again. I can just hear the monks chanting, smell the incense, and feel at peace just looking at your photo.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
