Happy Magha Puja Day!

Magha Puja is a holiday celebrated by Buddhists mostly of the Theravada (Southern Buddhist) tradition, commemorating the Buddha's teachings to monks nine months after his Enlightenment. Magha Puja is now also celebrated in the U.S.

Chaplain Somya Malasri, one of our active Army Chaplains, will observe Magha Puja tonight at 6PM at the Fort Lewis North chapel.

No matter which vehicle we travel in, may we all take the time to re-commit to the Buddha-Dharma, and help all beings to Awakening!
