Tainan Branch Monastery Volunteers Visit Jianshen’s Elderly
Forty volunteers of the Tainan Branch from the Monastery of Dharma Drum Mountain visited the elderly residents of Jianshen Nursing Home on the morning of September 10th 2011 bringing warm wishes of happiness and health.
Guided by Venerable Chang Feng, the morning’s activities began with all participants joining palms and chanting the holy Buddhist mantras. Following prayers for peace and health, young volunteers from the DDM Youth Society guided the elderly through a short exercise, and also jointly led them in singing a few tunes together.
Before bidding a farewell, Venerable Chang Feng offered his blessings with a gift of a Buddhist rosary for each resident at the nursing home.
