Gotama Temple Celebrates New Year In Long Beach!

I can hear the chanting throughout my house all through the week but today is the Vietnamese New Year. Today, was a special service, for my neighbors. The Monks and Nuns of the Chua Phat To Gotama Buddhist Temple are my neighbors. They are peaceful, they speak as much as their english will allow. They have welcomed me personally to Tai Chi, of which I accepted, and to chant and pray if I wish.

A smile, a friendly hello or a wave crosses all boundries. Enjoy the Photos!

BE Mindful! BE Prayerful! BE Careful!

Nice pics!

I, just by coincidence, stopped at a Vietnamese restaurant yesterday and they were celebrating. Wish I'd had my camera along.

Hey Carmel D,
The Slinky is the greatest invention of the 20th Century! Of course there were votes for the silly putty and a few others but if you check Mista Jaycee Insane Commentary on the 20th Century you will understand.

Go Slinky!

Hey PTB,
Welcome to my humble abode. But Long Beach is the South not the Bay. Long Beach is right outside of Los Angeles. About 6 miles.

Hi Jillian,
Stop by and stay awhile as often as you like.

The Tai Chi has been great. No mystical or esoteric experience but I feel good doin it. I like it alot and highly recommend it.
