Join us for a community picnic and sutra recitation! A great day out with fellow LTC students and Sangha, enjoying quality social time, gallons of chai tea, and join in reciting the Sutra of Golden Light, bringing harmony and healing to the environment and all the beings around. This month we are visiting Palm Beach on the Gold Coast to bless the sea and our outreach group!
We invite you to come and lend your voice to bless the sea and all the creatures in it! The day is by donation, with all proceeds going to a landcare preservation group in the area. BYO lunch, fold-up chair, swimmers, suncreen, hat and drinks. LTC will supply the sutras and delicious chai! Bookings are appreciated so we can arrange car-pooling for anyone who needs it!
Where to meet
- Meet at LTC. Be here by 8 am if you need help getting there or can offer car-pooling. Please let us know at least a day in advance.
- Or, meet us there at Palm Beach, near the pirate treasure island playground (there’s a carpark) and the Currumbin off-leash dog beach. Arrive by 10 am for the recitation.
What to bring
Bring your swimmers, towel, hat, sunscreen, fold-up chair, plenty of water, lunch and a plate to share. Also bring a donation and some money for coffee at the cafe. LTC will bring the sutra, offerings and gallons of chai!
About the Day
Once we have all arrived at the venue we begin with motivation prayers and a speech blessing. We then recite the sutra in three sections, offering our traditional chai tea in the breaks. (If you need help getting there, please contact LTC in advance so we can organise car-pooling). The day is by donation. All proceeds will go towards a community or land care association in the area.
