Samu at the International Buddhist Meditation Center (IBMC) is important because the yards of the houses that comprise the center are quite large and filled with all kinds of flowers, shrubs and trees that require lots of maintenance. We are hoping to be more ecologically responsible by, over time, turning the grass lawns into fields of herbs, especially of rosemary which requires must less water than grass and is surely more useful!
If you have any ideas for the most effective way to utilize herbs in this way and would like to join us in our gardening efforts on the last Saturday of every month, you will surely be welcome!
Below are some pictures of our efforts on Saturday, March 30, 2013.
Arriving in a convoy of tour buses, around 250 Vietnamese Buddhists from the Southern California area made their annual visit to IBMC in celebration of the Lunar New Year.
Ven. Dr. Karuna Dharma, Ven. H. Shanti, and other monastics at IBMC welcomed them.
IBMC would like to thank them for visiting and their generous donations in support of IBMC's programs and activities.
