Feed the Hungry and Benefit Beings in Honor of the Buddha’s First Teaching Holiday!
As the summer calendar rolls along at KTC, we come to the annual celebration of Chokhor Duchen – the “great occasion” (Du = Time and Chen = Great) of the Buddha’s First Dharma Teaching (Cho = Dharma and khor = Wheel, or the turning of the dharma wheel). which always falls during the middle of the summer.
To increase benefit for beings and to assist our Franklinton Neighbors, we will be collecting canned and packaged food every Sunday from now through Sunday July 7 for the Holy Family Food Pantry. Please consider donating non-perishable food items (canned fruit, vegetables, juice, meat and boxed crackers, pasta) and toiletries (shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, diapers) Look for the specially marked bins in the Lower Social Hall (also known as the KTC Shrine Room]. Everyone who donates can put their name on a list in the bin, and on July 7 during the Dharma Talk, a name will be drawn from the list to receive a special dharma gift. Thanks for your donations, and may all beings benefit!
