Nan Tien Temple Kogarah celebrated Buddha's Birthday and the Multicultural Festival recently with Member for Kogarah Chris Minns MP, Georges River Council Councillor Nancy Liu, and community members.
Buddha's Birthday and Multicultural Festival has been celebrated in Sydney Darling Harbour since 1995.
Because of the ongoing COVID-19 and the restriction, the celebration for this year has scaled back to its local monastic.
The celebration commenced with an opening ceremony attended by Member for Kogarah Chris Minns MP, Georges River Council Councillor Nancy Liu JP, Chief Abbess of Australia and New Zealand Venerable Man Ko, and local representatives.
Chris Minns MP said that the organisation is very open for the St George community to experience what they have done.
"The work that BLIA is doing around mindfulness and also compassionate and empathy to the community is a great example of a great community," he said.
Councillor Nancy Liu passed on Georges River Council's regards to this very special occasion.
"I am so delighted to be invited to join you all to attend the festival," she said.
The organiser, representative President of Aloka Carol You, said Nan Tien Temple Kogarah had a message of love, peace and faith to the society.
"Practise the three acts of goodness, do a good deed, say good words, think good thoughts, coexist and prosperity to build up friendship with the community," You said.
