Following a tradition that dates back to the Buddha’s time, each year the Deer Park fourfold Sangha has a 3-month Rains Retreat. The monastic brothers and sisters use this time to deepen their practice. The Rains Retreat begins with two ceremonies. The first is on Saturday night and the second is on Sunday morning.
Saturday, October 31, 2020 at 7:00pm (PDT) is the time for the Counting Sticks Ceremony. We are happy to share this ceremony with you.
