Fundraiser for the Buddhist Church of Stockton!

Friday, September 22, 2023

Place your order for pickup or delivery on Friday, September 22 !
Available at Panda Express locations nationwide



We cordially invite families with newborns and children up to one year of age to participate in our virtual Hatsumairi Ceremony, which will take place during our Zoom Gotan-e Service on Sunday, May 15, 2022. We also invite parents to register their children above one year of age to have their children presented as followers of the Buddha if they did not have an opportunity to participate in a Hatsumairi ceremony when they were infants.
Hatsumairi literally means, “first Buddhist service.” Often translated as “Infant Presentation Service,” Hatsumairi represents the first opportunity for parents to bring their children who were born during the previous year to our temple. At the same time, it gives our temple the opportunity to give expression to the Primal Vow of Amida Buddha, which embraces people of all ages, genders, and ethnicities.
If you wish to participate, please complete the form here and mail it to the Buddhist Church of Stockton by Saturday, April 30, 2022. Please call the temple at: (209) 466-6701 if you have any questions regarding this ceremony. Thank you!
