Tsunami Fund Raiser at Như Lai Thiền Tự - December 29, 2004

I was among several dozen monastics who attended a ceremony at Như Lai Thiền Tự in San Diego to raise money for the tsunami victims in South Asia. Not only were there monastics from various Vietnamese Buddhist traditions but also Chinese, Korean, Sri Lanken, and Thai. The Theravada monks chanted in Pali, while the Mahayana chanted in their mother tongues. One of the speakers shared the heart break of finding out that his brother and his family were missing and the village he grew up in was completely gone.
