Event Description

Dharma Talk and Panel Discussion on the Theme of Growing in Gratitude

  • Workshops
  • Activities for Children
  • Tabling by Buddhist Communities

Buddhist Peace Fellowship, Portland is proud to host the 15th Annual Buddhist Festival in the Park on Saturday, June 2, with the theme "Growing in Gratitude."  

Gary Sanders, a teacher at Portland Insight Meditation Community, will give the keynote Dharma talk. He is excited about the theme of gratitude. He loves doing gratitude practices as a part of the practice of guided meditation.

Participating groups will have booths through the day from 11 am to 4:30 pm.  From noon to 1:30 pm workshops will be offered on Buddhist practices. In addition to the Dharma Talk at 1:30 there is a Discussion Panel on the theme at 2:30. At 4:00, BPF Portland will host a drawing for prizes related to Buddhism. All festival attendees are eligible for one free ticket.
                          
While the Dharma talk and panel discussion occur in the festival's main canopy, the children's canopy will be busy with story times, crafts, and other activities. For the final offering of the day after 4:00, adults and children will have a chance to learn and participate in a few simple traditional dances from the Obon Festival which is hosted every year by Oregon Buddhist Temple, one of the oldest Buddhist temples in the U.S.

Many different Portland area communities will be represented at the booths.  Pure Land, Zen, Vajrayana, Vipassana, and non-sectarian groups will share news and information about their communities. This is a perfect opportunity for those curious about Buddhism to explore the possibilities available.


The festival is free, and all are welcome.  Organizers ask for mindfulness regarding waste: please avoid single use water bottles and do sort recyclables.
