“We have invited community and religious leaders from around the area to pray for peace with us this weekend,” explained said the Venerable Miao Hsi, temple spokeswoman.
The beautiful Hsi Lai Temple is a bastion of peace and tranquility on a hilltop in Hacienda Heights. The prayer will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the main sanctuary.
“Later in the day, we’re inviting families to come to our big neighborhood celebration,” the monk said. “We will have many cultural workshops and performances, as well as a light offering ceremony.”
The celebration begins at 4:30 p.m. Saturday and will continue until 8 p.m. Family members can enjoy tea ceremonies, Chinese calligraphy and arts and crafts until 5:30, when the light offering ceremony will begin in the main shrine. This will be followed by many performances by the musical and dance groups sponsored by the Hsi Lai Temple.
“Afterward, everyone may enjoy a free vegetarian dinner in our dining hall. We will be giving away many wonderful door prizes,” Hsi said.
