Annual Animal Blessing at DNKL in Redding
May 31, 2014 01:03AM
On June 7 from 12:30-4pm (rain date June 21), Do Ngak Kunphen Ling (DNKL) Tibetan Buddhist Center for Universal Peace in Redding will host its annual Animal Blessing, featuring animal professionals, crafts and games, a silent auction, a speaker from Guiding Eyes for the Blind and the animal blessings themselves. The blessings of visitors’ leashed and well-behaved animals will be done by the resident Tibetan Buddhist monks at the center.
Guiding Eyes for the Blind is an internationally accredited, nonprofit guide dog school that is dedicated to enriching the lives of blind and visually impaired men and women. Part of the proceeds raised by the silent auction will be used to purchase pet oxygen masks for a local fire/rescue unit.
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, DNKL promotes universal peace through Tibetan Buddhist teachings in order to create enlightened world citizens who work to end the suffering of all beings. DNKL offers classes and training in Buddhist moral discipline, meditative concentration and transformative wisdom. All Dharma classes at DNKL are free, although tax-deductible donations to support the center and its activities are appreciated.
Do Ngak Kunphen Ling Tibetan Buddhist Center for Universal Peace is located at 30 Putnam Park Rd, Redding. For more information, visit dnkldharma.org (special events), email [email protected] or call 203-664-1574.
