Alms at Hsi Lai Temple

The Hsi Lai Temple in Hacienda Heights is holding an international ordination for 120 novices from around the world. They will become monks and nuns after the 14-day ceremony.
A highlight will be the Alms Round at 1 p.m. on Dec. 20, when the monks re-enact the tradition of begging from door to door that dates back to the time of the Buddha more than 2,500 years ago.
The temple is at 3456 S. Glenmark Drive. For more information, call (626) 961-9697.
