Midsummer Day Celebration

June 21 / 3:00 PM - June 21 / 9:00 PM



Featuring musical entertainment by "Carol and the Moonbeams"


Midsummer day is one of the "nyida" days from the Tibetan words nyima (sun) and dawa (moon). This is the time we observe the summer solstice by gathering in family-oriented celebration.

NOTE: We will not be gathering at the Philadelphia Center. We will be gathering at the address below:

391 Kirk Lane, Media, PA 19063 (Wagner's)

Pot-luck: bring your favorite dish to share (salads, entrées, desserts), a lawn chair or blanket and a friend. Dress is casual. Children's activities are being planned.

Lhasang at 4:30PM: a lhasang is a traditional smoke offering performed to purify the environment and bring down blessing. You are welcome to bring an object that is significant to you to put through the smoke offering. Traditionally that might be a text or a 
mall or a shrine object, but you are free to interpret it as you wish.

Beverages will be provided.

Contact Matt Dirodio for questions or information:
