Guan Yin Citta Netherlands’ first anniversary draws more than 700 people to vegetarian heaven
To celebrate the first anniversary of Guan Yin Citta Buddhist Practice Center in Netherlands, a large scale free vegetarian event took place at Dutch windmill village restaurant in Amsterdam on June 3, 2019. More than 700 people packed into the venue and spent an unforgettable day with delicious food and spiritual experience. It is also a good opportunity to promote the coming Dharma Talk by Master Jun Hong Lu in September 2019 in Europe, which will inspire people to learn better ways to improve life and mental wellbeing.
As a nonprofit organization, Guan Yin Citta Buddhist Practice Center in Netherlands has been committed to spreading core values of Buddhism and Master Jun Hong Lu’s teachings. In the past year, it has organized several large scale free vegetarian events in local communities and provided free Dharma class for kids to learn Buddhism and traditional Chinese culture. The loving kindness and compassion form the underlying foundation of the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, and motivate the volunteers unconditionally devote their time, energy and love to help others awaken their inner souls’ wisdom and awareness. The first year anniversary is the milestone to embark on the new journey and embrace new challenges.
The event consists of multiple sessions, including the introductions of Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, Master Jun Hong Lu, and the development of Guan Yin Citta Netherlands. Video sharing includes clips of Master Jun Hong Lu’s Totem Inquiry and Dharma Talks. Some of the music and marvelous performances also astonish the attendees all. A duet for the violin and cello performed by two Western Buddhist friends received roaring applause. They perfectly interpreted the Great Compassion Mantra as beautiful melody. Another Buddhist friend played the song Wish to be the lotus flower of the Bodhisattva on flute. Some young kids performed the recitation of the Great Compassion Mantra and Zhun Ti Shen Zhou. Volunteers from different countries of Europe, including Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, contributed their time and energy to help Guan Yin Citta Netherlands fulfill such a successful activity. The fact that they are carrying on Master Jun Hong Lu’s Dharma teachings in daily life is most praiseworthy.
Another highlight of the event is the introduction of the coming Dharma Talk by Master Jun Hong Lu in Europe. There will be two public talks in Paris and Rotterdam respectively. The Guan Yin Citta Netherlands will provide free shuttle buses for Buddhist friends to attend the public talk in Rotterdam on September 10th, 2019. Free admission tickets for the public talks were distributed for free and lots of people obtained the tickets and look forward to seeing Master Jun Hong Lu in the coming September. The volunteers of Guan Yin Citta Netherlands will put their best effort into the coming events and spread Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door to more sentient beings.
