In the spirit of practicing the three-month Winter Retreat 2016-17, this year at Deer Park Monastery, the community is celebrating the Holiday Season and Lunar New Year very simply so that the monastics have more time to study and practice during this three-month Winter Retreat. Therefore, you may notice that the program for celebrating New Year and Lunar New Year are slightly different compared to previous years.
We are so grateful for your support during this Winter Retreat. We wish you every happiness and good health this coming year.
9:30 AM: New Year wishes and paying respect to the Most Venerable; Monastic Prostration
12:30 PM: Lunch
