Chicago Guan Yin Citta Practice Center held the first Vegetarian Tasting Event.
19 August 2019
On 30 June 2019, the Chicago Guan Yin Citta Practice Center successfully held the first free vegetarian sharing event. The purpose is to promote the vegetarian culture and the essence of Buddhism. The event is also to allow more people to understand Buddhism further, and to elevate from suffering and to enjoy happiness through cultivation.
Volunteers came to support the event from, New York, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Las Vegas, Denver, Ottawa, Phoenix, Toronto, and Michigan. A total of more than 200 Buddhist friends participated in the free vegetarian event, with no vacant seats. The programme includes Dharma teachings, cultural performances, and delicious vegetarian lunches for free. The atmosphere was very harmonious and full of joy! Everyone was very orderly, humble and polite.
Many Buddhist friends found vegetarian food not only tastes good but also has a wide variety of nutrients and a suitable combination of nutrients. They understood the benefits of vegetarianism. Many Buddhist friends left their contact information, and take home, free Buddhist scriptures, Buddhist books, and Buddhist learning materials.
Volunteers in North America are gratitude to Guan Yin Bodhisattva for achieving such great results. They will follow the teachings of Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu, and work hard to help more sentient beings escape the sea of suffering!
