Tết (Lunar New Year) at Deer Park

Translation / Dịch : Vietnamese Spanish

The lunar new year season will soon arrive at Deer Park. We celebrate this season with peace and harmony. We will be present for each other, share our joy, our happiness, our ease in the new year. By practicing mindful breathing, walking, and smiling, we are able to be aware of the miracles within and around us. We can to live more fully, and to truly wish a new year season to all.

With great joy, Deer Park welcomes you to come and celebrate Tết with us. It is a chance to be in touch with our Vietnamese roots, to build brotherhood and sisterhood, to offer our new year prayers for and peace in ourselves and peace in the world.
