Bodhi Manda Zen Center

An American Rinzai Zen Buddhist Center in Jemez Springs, New Mexico

Why we sit together during the full moon

Full moon meditation at Bodhi Manda Zen Center, jemez springs, new mexico

The full moon provides the perfect time to pause, reflect, let go and fully engage in the present moment. Every month on the day of the full moon, Bodhi Manda Zen Center offers a meditation program to the public. Please join us in the Center’s Zen garden to sit together during this beautiful moment of the lunar cycle.

This month’s Full Moon Meditation will be held on Tuesday, 11th April, starting at 7 p.m. The program includes dinner and the use of the hot springs afterwards. Suggested donation of $10 is gratefully accepted.

In an article from BuddhaSasana, the author discusses some of the reasons that the full moon resonates for so many people: “Many Buddhists observe the eight precepts on full moon days, to be free from family commitments and to keep away from worldly pleasures in order to have peace of mind for their spiritual development.”

Enjoy your reading and please contact the Zen Center for reservations.
