Grafton Peace Pagoda

Grafton Peace Pagoda
18th Anniversary Celebration
Saturday, October 1, 2011 - 11:00 AM
Grafton, NY
This year we are welcoming over 30 Nipponzan Myohoji monks and nuns from
all over the world for the Grafton Anniversary Celebration and the Opening
Ceremony of the new temple at the New England Peace Pagoda in Leverett, MA.

All Are Warmly Welcome!
Buddhist Sacred Ceremony
Dennis Banks, Anishinabe Nation Native American Prayer
Interfaith Prayer
Music by Ai Yamaguchi from Japan with “No More Fukushima Song”
Round Dance by Six Nations
This year, in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, we have been
focusing on creating a world where children will not be exposed to the
reality of nuclear radiation from nuclear power and war. We pray for those
who have suffered in the wake of nuclear disasters in the past and for those
being affected now.  We pray for change so there will be no need for others
to suffer this way in the future. This is a turning point where consciousness
needs to be raised and we must choose to live more gently upon this earth.

Please join us for a potluck community meal after ceremonies.  Please bring
your favorite international foods (preferably vegetarian, organic and healthy).
For each person coming, please bring a dish to feed 10 people.  It may be cold. 
Please bring a coat and blanket.  Please arrive before 11:00 AM for best parking.
For more information please call the Peace Pagoda at (518) 658 - 9301
