Dear Friends of Wat Buddhametta,

 All friends of Wat Buddhametta are invited to attend and are welcome to bring food, fruit, etc. for the Alms Offering and a prepared dish to share for lunch. All friends who would like to participate in the memorial service may bring the remains, pictures, or names of the persons that you would like to remember and do merit for. You may bring these items on the day before the ceremony.

 Sart Thai’s Day or Thai Memorial Day is a Thai Buddhist traditional ceremony to memorialize the ancestors, cousins, relatives or friends who have passed away. This ceremony will be commemorated at Wat Buddhametta on Sunday, September 23, 2018

On the same day, we would like to encourage all Buddhists and friends to pledge contributions to the monastery in the form of “The Gift Tree” or “Pha-Pa” which will be used to raise the money needed to buy the food and cooking necessities for our booth at Tucson Meet Yourself 2018 which will be held October 12-13-14, 2018.

For checks, please make your donation to “Wat Buddhametta” or “Tucson Buddhist Meditation Center.” We also accept cash and your entire donation is tax deductible as we are a 501 C 3 nonprofit organization.
