A New Year Gala to Send Warmth and Spread Good Cheers by Guan Yin Citta Tokyo
The end-of-year holiday season is a time to celebrate the hard work and the year’s successes. To sincerely appreciate the support from Buddhist friends and local communities, Guan Yin Citta Tokyo held a grand gala at Higashi-Ojima on December 27, 2018 from 18:30 pm to 21:00pm. It attracted over 200 people and offered one of the best platforms to bring the Buddhist teachings to life.
During the past 3 years, under the blessings from Guan Yin Bodhisattva and Master Jun Hong Lu, Guan Yin Citta Tokyo has been serving Buddhist friends and local communities with love and compassion. Many people facing hardships and immense struggles ultimately went through tough times by applying Buddhist wisdom to their own lives.
The past 2018 was another productive year for the Guan Yin Citta Tokyo. The Buddhist Practice Center faced challenges in many areas of the work. But thanks to the steadfast support of all the Buddhist friends and volunteers, Guan Yin Citta Tokyo keeps thriving and has made concrete achievements. More and more new Buddhist friends are engaged in the Buddhist practice and learning Master Jun Hong Lu’s Buddhist teachings. A brand new Buddhist Practice Center grandly opened in Nagoya on October 27th, 2018. Several large scale free vegetarian food tasting events and life liberation activities were organized and boosted the sphere of influence of Guan Yin Citta in Tokyo.
The spectacular gala show was prepared and presented by volunteers from Guan Yin Citta. Series of spectacular performances amazed the audience, including singing, dancing, reading, and Tai Chi performances. Some Buddhist friends shared their touching stories about how they faced life hardships and come out stronger and wiser by learning Master Jun Hong Lu’s Buddhist teachings. Their heartfelt stories touched many people and inspired them to focus on the core values of Buddhism.
In addition to the excellent presentation, music, and food, the guests were able to participate in a giveaway drawing session. Some lucky attendees received beautiful gifts from the free giveaway. They had a wonderful time watching the shows and tasting delicious vegetarian food for free.
Last year has come and gone, the Guan Yin Citta Tokyo is looking forward to a new year that brings new challenges and opportunities. Happy and Prosperous New Year!
