As is our ongoing tradition, every year each chapter of Tzu Chi USA celebrates the Buddha, our parents, and the Tzu Chi path of love on Mother’s Day. On this occasion, we join together to participate in a Buddha Bathing Ceremony, which is open to all faiths and invites us to symbolically purify our hearts and enlighten our own inherently pure and good nature. This wonderful celebration unites us as one family, to offer our blessings and express our deepest gratitude to our parents, each other, all humankind, and our shared and precious Mother Earth. We look forward to having the honor of your presence at the festival in a location closest to you! All are welcome.
May the light in our hearts brighten the sky and the water that bathes the Buddha purify our hearts.
Let us show gratitude to Buddha, our parents, and all sentient beings.
May we return to our pure nature and build a Pure Land here on Earth together.
