Thousands Practice Chan in Taipei City to Celebrate Mother’s Day
Thousands of Taipei residents gathered with the DDM Sangha at the Taipei City Hall plaza on the morning on 12 May 2013 to practice Chan in celebration of Mother’s Day.
The event was hosted by the DDM Sangha. While the event was aimed to teach the Eight Form Moving Meditation practice, it allowed participants to experience the joy of pacing the mind when performing the moving exercise and recognizing the importance of maintaining a peaceful mind with a smile.
DDM’s Abbot President Venerable Guo Dong, Taipei City’s Mayor Dr. Lung-Bin Hao, and other honorable guests attended the event and offered their blessings, as well as sharing their personal experience of joyfulness and a peaceful mind when practicing the Eight Form Moving Meditation.
