Dear brothers & sisters,

The Buddhist Ullambana Day Ceremony is a Celebration in Remembrance of our parents' great efforts, on our behalf, throughout our lives. The tree draws its strength growing from the earth, drawing water and nutrition from the ground as its sustenance.  Nobody came to this world without their parents who devoted their lives towards our growth to maturity. Their love and labor can not be expressed adequately through common language and simple gifts.

 We wish to invite you and your family to participate in this Ceremony to be held at the Quang Duc Monastery, 105 Lynch Road, Fawkner,  3060.  It will commence at 10.00am, Sunday, 14 August 2011.
